But it was no howler, Lacy was the very warm favourite. With hindsight, yes the pick was obvious; but picking Lacy over Calzaghe was on par with picking Foreman over Ali or Liston over the then Clay (fight one).

Then Bunce sold out...fair enough you have a mortgage to pay and a family to feed like everyone else.....but don't keep on telling us about how you tell it how it is. Now he slags of the forum posters and people like Wingy on youtube at every opportunity, doesn't seem to realise we make up 80% of his audience. Anyone remember the time he tried to butcher me on his BBC show for slating Haye for taking the Audley fight?


I also think his gig has got old now. Everything in TV/Entertainment runs its course no matter how succesful it is. Look at The Simpson, its been BS for 10 years now.


Steady on!

Mkrychan, Salem, Ashira and a Viet rematch that wasn't even televised was Joes run going into the fight and his form sketchy in these fights, Salem even managed to drop him and against Ashira he broke his hand. In these years Calzaghe had pulled out against Glen Johnson, Brian Magee and Clinton Woods. It looked like the end, he was 33 and had been pulling out of decent enough fights but showing up against whilst looking less than his old self against the WBO mis mandatories put on his plate.

It helped that Lacy had rolled over his recent foes like a tank. He was the right man at the right time, we had all seen this script before. Not many knew Calzaghe was going to rip up that script into 1006 bits.

Bunce has always been full of shit. Even before he joined Box Nation. Don't know why it's taken up until now for everyone to see this.

You are right, the pick isnt even a howler - Lacey was favourite, but apparently the writer also questioned Calzaghe's heart. The latter was probably the biggest 'howler'. But, then Calzaghe has since confessed in interviews that he had to be talked into going ahead with the fight, he had many doubts etc - so maybe there was some grounds for the writer to question his heart??? Anyway, as we know there was no problem on fight night with Calzaghe's heart and we can all be experts after the fight.

Steve Bunce and he sits on his arse, talking boxing, on your TV.

Steve was driven away from this cesspit because of the Eddie Hearn lovers. A valued poster driven away because of this forum.

You lot should be ashamed of yourselves!

Bunce can do f*ck all right in your eyes, you hang on his every word, be it radio or TV, he cant breathe without any of you jumping on his back about something he said or did. How sad. What next, the shirt he wears?

I like him because he aint PC and he says what he wants. In this day and age of PR bombardment and political correctness, its nice to see someone be original and real.

The fact that you lot jump on his back all the time, but make sure to listen to the podcast and watch him on TV, he is the real winner here. He kind of owns you. Yes, owns you. He dont give a **** what you think, unless you keep tuning in, which you are!

If you dont like him, dont listen, and dont ****ing watch!

Adios.
Hello Buncey, you fat knacker.

No problem with Cleverly getting his hand raised but could have made an argument for Bellew win. I had it a draw.
