Well saying that McGee is a legend is wrong, but I thought the other statements are fine. It was a competitive match on paper, but McGee for some reason couldn't take a body shot anymore. It could also be that Kessler not know to be a body puncher made a statement of future opponents to think about protecting the body also.

How can anyone take the sport seriously when the commentators say about this fight:

"Kessler has sent shock waves through the boxing world tonight"..seriously?? By beating a 37 year old washed up nobody??

"McGee is a boxing legend"...really?? Honestly I never heard of him until I saw the video on You tube.

Its like if they say it in an excited and husky voice then it must be an exciting fight..pathetic.

Give me Larry Merchant and HBO any day...

I dont rate Magee at all. I remember him being put down by past best R Reid 4 times, but Magee has done alot more than Dirrell.
Dirrells best win is a DQ over a small MW.
Magee became a WBA SMW champ, and has a better resume.
Remember how I owned you in a SMW debate and gave you my expert tip on who to pick? Bet you do

McGee floored Hatton once so he's a HOF in fairness.

Magee was never a world champion. Just like every other regular, interim or silver 'champion' who never achieved 'full' status.

Give the British a break, they once ruled the seas, so they hype whoever they have - or whoever beats them - like bosses of the world. And when the Hayes are in a rude awakening, they find a Welsh or a Scot great to embrace as their own, even if they treated them like cunts before.

That's an impressive v-Cash amount you have. If you have any picks you'd like to share with me, I'd appreciate it.

I'm sure theres plenty of Irish boxing fans who just found out who he was last night considering that he's never on Sky, Boxnation or RTE...or even in the newspaper.

Plenty of irish fighters do get a great following, even down to Patrick Hyland and Willie Casey, but Magee isnt really one of them despite always being ranked higher.
LMAO you think Hyland and Casey have better followings than Magee? first of all, where are you getting this "fact" that it wasn't on in the pubs? yes it was as for Patrick Hylands fight..Patrick who? would be the response you'd get from most people

second of all, you didn't know who Magee was even when he battered the **** out of your "undefeated pospect" Stevie Maguire? Was that not on TV either? THAT is the definition of a nobody, Brian Magee had a lot of hype when he turned pro, for one he was a great amateur who handed Jeff Lacy one of his few amateur losses.

gotta love a guy from Clydebank telling me how many people know who Brian Magee is and how many people support him
