I'll tell you another thing, DeGale and Gavin could not be nicer guys they shook hands with anyone who came up to them, would sign anything or have their pictures taken with everyone

Gavin especially came across as a top bloke

Was funny to see DeGale chatting to fans before his bout in the walk up corridor whilst chomping some Jaffa Cakes!

Yeah he looked really good and very heavy handed. Sometimes though when he's slipping punches he almost kneels on the canvas. He should cut that stuff out. LOl!

Obviously I only got one chance to see the stoppages, but the early few seemed really poor

Was at the fight tonight and have just watched the fight on TV. Quite simply Mitchell was not ready for World level.

Like everyone else i am saying this in hindsight, but Mitchell had 1 fight at domestic level and 1 fight at fringe world class.

The injury obviously caused problems in his development but he should of been fighting for a European title tonight and not for a World title for another year. Having tough fights at domestic and european level would have prepared him better and he would have known what to do when getting caught early.

Instead he was lost as soon as he got in trouble due to inexperience and fighting soft opponents.

I don't think anyone can doubt his potential or that he has the ability to win a world title. But he needs to build up to World level not jump the q because he is a big ticket seller and has a good promoter.

going on from here, I think Mitchell needs to go to the states. Not because Tibbs is not a great trainer, but to get a high level of sparring he will get which will also be a great experience.

as for the rest of the night.........got beaten up by a group of West Ham fans on the train. some guy asked me who i supported and I just said Spurs not thinking about it. started giving me shit which i just ignored. finally after 5 minutes he was getting on my nerves to much and i told him where to go, he was walking away and all of a sudden a load of his mates showed up and me and my friend got roughed up. nothing to bad but made the night even worse.

Did any of you see the Hall fight? How did he look and did he win by stoppage/on points?

i thought it was slightly early stoppage at 1st but from the other angle it was clear he took a fair few hard shots, legs were gone and couldnt protect himself. impressed with degale also - for the first time ever
