Default THAT is what I love about boxing

Two fighters never stepping down, giving it their all.

Well done Simpson and Truscott, you just done British boxing proud again.

Yep, well done to both fighters. Truscott can come out of that fight with his head held high, IMO.

British FOTY so far beyond question - probably the best domestic fight since Moore vs Macklin.

Simpson ought to be looking at Lindsay or European level - Trussy needs to get on the weights as McCrory has been saying.

gotta feel for truscot, he wanted that BAD. he looks like hes matured physically but didn't have the power for that fight. he looked nice and tidy till he got cut. i like simpsons no nonsence style.

Was a good fight but really you knew Simpson would win despite Truscott having some good moments. As sky say though (and this time it's not bullshit) it's a great way to kick off a cracking series of fights.

Slip, are you mental, mate? Fury-McDermott, PBF-JMM, Brook-Jennings and Moore-Rhodes to name just a few. You certainly chose a time to ditch Sky Sports considering what we've had in the last 3 months or so!
