Default Two questions...

1) Any of you still think that Johnny could make a decent comeback in the game? He's still in good shape, looks pretty sharp on the pads, didn't really take any punishment at all during his time spent in the ring. Could he make a comeback or not?

2) What kind of salary would the likes of Nelson/McCrory/Watt be on? Always wondered about that.

Didnt Nelson retire due to a persistant knee injury?

If I remember right he still looked like he had some miles left in the clock when he retired at 38.

But theres a reason why so few fighters find success over the ages of 40.

60k ish is the going rate for a pundit on Sky- if you are freelance likely a tad less. Jim Watt etc are on considerably more.
