I thought Joe Ward looked very strong friday nite. Not unbelievably skilful/fast or anything but he bullied Egan around da ring; a big thing for a 17 year-old to do!! I was thinkin sumtin afterwards and i wonder does anyone agree....i think he might actually struggle to make 81kg in 18 months for the olympics (if he actually gets selected on the team instead of egan and qualifies)! its just that he looked very big (especially around da shoulders and back) so i assume he was the full 81kgs. He's still growing and will presumably be full-time trainin on an irish sports council grant, so will continue to get bigger and stronger. Evryone keeps sayin he wil evolve into a heavyweight eventually, but i tink it mite happen sooner rather dan l8r (without him having a choice if he keeps growing) and he'd be stuck in limbo den cos Con sheehan wil probly have qualified for the Olympics come the end of the next world championships. What's people thoughts on this??

Graham Earl To Showcase Local Fighters In Belfast On April 2nd

Former WBU World Lightweight Champion, turned promoter, Graham Earl is set to promote his second [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] event of the year, ‘Fists of Fury’ at the Nugent Hall at Kings Hall in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on Saturday 2nd April 2011.

Graham, who over the past year or so has been scouring Northern Ireland for up and coming young boxing talent, will be showcasing many of his latest Irish signings as well as bringing a couple of his established British boxers to Belfast.

Heading up the list of local fighters is Joe ‘Belfast Banger’ Hillerby, who will be making his third outing as a pro.

On his pro-debut, at the Northampton Cricket Ground in October 2010, Hillerby caused a sensation when he stopped Luton’s Gavin Putney in just 43 seconds of the first round.

Hillerby followed this up with a shutout points win over the excellent Ryan Clarke at York Hall in January.

The normally fast starting Clarke seemed a little more cautious than normal, possibly due to Hillerby’s stunning first round stoppage of Putney a couple of months earlier, which allowed Hillerby to take the first couple of rounds by forcing the pace throughout.

Round three see the real Ryan Clarke emerge. Normal service is resumed as Clarke starts letting rip with heavy hands. Hillerby is made of sterner stuff though, standing his ground and trading with equal venom. Much closer round but Hillerby still gets the nod.

More of the same in fourth with Clarke throwing everything but the kitchen sink in an effort to stop the advancing juggernaut known as the ‘Belfast Banger’. No surprise to anyone that Hillerby came out the winners in this one.

Another Belfast boy, Ian Boyd, is also set for his first home town fight. Boyd will be looking to get the fist win on his record, having lost on his debut to Lincoln’s Rick Boulter by a very close 57-58 points margin back in October.

In addition to Hillerby and Boyd there will be no less than six Belfast boys, Mark Morris, David Rosbotham, Mark Ginley, Sean Montgomery, Padraig McCory and James Ferrin making their professional debuts on April 2nd.

Graham will also be showcasing one of his latest British signings, former WBF Intercontinental Welterweight title challenger James Todd from Swansea.

Todd, a former Team Calzaghe member, is used to fighting away from home having fought twice in America, including his unsuccessful WBF title challenge against Ugandan Mohammed Kayongo in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Having lost both his American fights Todd will be looking to get his career back on track with a good win in Belfast.

Graham will also be bringing over exciting unbeaten Light Welterweight Terry Holmes, who has impressed on his two previous outings, having out pointed both the experienced Johnny Greaves and Cassius Connor by shutout 40-36 point margins.

‘Fists of Fury’ will also feature Miami, Florida’s Emmanuel (Manny) Oshunrinde, a former professional Basketball player turned boxer. Oshunrinde will be looking to secure his first UK win, having lost on his debut and having the misfortune of having a clear first round TKO win on his record reduced to a Technical Draw under the new BBBofC rule introduced earlier this year.

At Graham’s ‘Capital Punishment’ event in January Oshunrinde faced the tough Jahmaine Smyle. Both protagonists started fast, however Oshunrinde quickly took control with his superior jab, often forcing Smyle backwards. Around half way through the round Oshunrinde again sent Smyle backwards, but this time followed up and let rip with a big left-right to the head.

Smyle covered up quickly, but not quick enough to stop another heavy straight right. Oshunrinde looked set to continue the onslaught but the eagle eyed referee had spotted the blood gushing from a cut above Smyle’s eye and called a halt to the proceedings.

Tickets for the Graham Earl Promoted ‘FISTS OF FURY’ event at the Nugent Hall, Kings Hall, Belfast on Saturday 2nd April 2011 are now on sale and priced £35 (Unreserved) or £50 (Ringside).

For tickets book on-line at [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] or contact local fighters. For further information call TKO Box Office on 07960 850645

ya i know wat ya mean bout da weight situation but after seeing him look so big i doubt he was 76/77kg or anything. he went from winnin da 71kg worlds a year nd a half ago to 81kg now so dats why i have me doubts dat he wil stay da same for the next year and a half. Ur bang on, his reactions, power, confidence and intelligence were top notch. His reactions were so natural it was unreal. I'd say he's an impossible ****er to hit I'd say he wud do fierce damage against other boxers cos he played it smart (and safe) versus egan. Wen he lets those hand go he seems lethal, so i cant wait to see a bit more of dat against lesser opponents over the next few years

Mush was supposed to be doing an article on him but he lost his bottle!

Anyway, back to Tolan - dirty? maybe! crude? probably!

Tommy Tolan's stoppage of JJ McDonagh earns him the Knockout of the Year Award

Yeh there is a desire to find out the following
1> When are they next expecting to be out
2> What is the plan for 2011
3> where are they likely to be happening

with the following fighters

1> Andy Murray
2> Spike
3> Dean Byrne
4> Jamie conlon
5> Martin Lindsay
6> Steven Ormonde
7> Patrick Hyland
8> Paul Hyland
9> Martin Rogan
10> Coleman Barrett


These are 10 fighter I think we haven't heard about in a while.
I'd personally be esepcially interested to know what will happen with Peters Stable since RTE are meant to be out of business for him and secondly with the likes of Dean Byne. Ok we know he is training in Arnies? Is that permanent? Has he left the wild card for good? Is he still hoping to do the Bernard Dunne route? Has PEters any plans to capitalise on Murray? Will he get a Mandatory shot? What about the Gavin Rees rhumors?

Can anyone help us out here?
