Matchroom should try 2 Englishmen,2 Scots,2 Welsh and 2 Irish that would bring a bit of spice to it?

I think there are just enough good ones for them to keep going with it.

There seems to be three shit ones, then a good one, then four shit ones, an ok one, a good one etc.

Sometimes they just get the fighters wrong, just look for 8 vulnerable bangers and stick them in with each other, rather than technical fighters or spoilers.

They've been crap for a while but I can't see how anyone thought an All-Ireland one would be decent... How few people have you got to choose from?

Silly idea.

Awful display.

Looked like drunk 8 men fighting in a car park.

Also those gloves need changing , they are the worst.

I really love the concept of Prizefighter, although it has felt a bit stale of late

I don't know why, but I've enjoyed the midweek ones more; something about an evening of live boxing after work........ love it!
there was more quality in the irish pf than what is usually in most british pfs

You would have to go a long way to beat this one.

Prizefighter is shit, was always shit and will forever be shit, the only highlight for me ever was Junior Witter thinking he could fly.

Oh and witnessing Jeffs thunderous left hook.

Not a fan of the format.

Pro fights need more than 3 rounds to develop.

He's also now training with a top coaching team don't forget that

na, this wasnt the worst one yet, theres been some true shockers in comparison to that one.

saying that, the format is worn out and dull. it should be restricted to 2 / 3 a year and just get a bunch of famous past it names with a decent punch. hungry inexperienced fighters make for really scrappy fights over 3 rounds.
