I still read BM , Bunces column is my first port of call. Thats still worth buiying.

I used to have a stack of BNs going back years but I couldnt tell you the last time I bought it.

I've missed the last two weeks. .... unheard of..... Keep meaning to get a copy but haven't got time. You need to include more top tens and profiles like you did in the mid 90's .... so there is some sort of clarity of who's whom and whats what.

BN is still a must read for me. Where else can you read about non televised small hall and amateur shows?

There's always going to be things in it you don't agree with but that isn't a negative, it'd be boring if everyone picked the same fighter to win and had the same opinions. I remember telling anyone who'd listen that Danny Williams would beat Vitali, I was very wrong but that doesn't mean I'm a retard, it just means I wasn't affraid to go against the grain and was honest enough to say what I believed.

Also, with the national press's reluctance to write about anything other than Hatton, Khan, Haye and the occasional bit on Froch, it's good to be able to pick up a weekly publication that I can read a bit of everyday at work. It helps me feed my habit.

It was always going to be a blow losing someone of Claude's calibre but Tris Dixon is a good writer and should be given a chance to stamp his own ideas on the magazine before people start to write him off.

To be honest Danny, the pair of them created their own problems. Strange kids I am told, with rumours of a noncing background somewhere.
