Default That was the worst night of boxing I've ever seen

A load of out of shape, below area level fighters with no technical ability haivng a tear up. It was ****ing horrible. I was embarrassed watching it with my mate.

Mik, I immediately switched off when Hide pulled out. Watching Hide was the only reason I tuned in, & when the going got tough, Herbie got going, & I ****ed off along with him!

well when I say 'immediately' I actually hung around for Barry Hearn tossing a coin with that Tony Blair fake grin of his just for freakshow value, then I turned off.

& it kills me to admit that as a boxing fan, but admit it I will. Our sport is in BIG trouble.

I respect anyone who has the courage to step through those ropes, but that was hard to watch for someone who grew up on Sweet Pea.

This "Prizefighter" gimmick has had its time. I said from the get go it was a load of garbage that was bastardising the sweet science.

Cut over the eye looked nasty at the time but after they dried it up looked like **** all to me (This was before he went to the corner). After he was in the corner it didn't let a drop out. After the first fight he said the doctor said if it opened up he would pull him out but i doubt it.

It seems the gap between the lowest level and "world" class is non existant at times. Herbie Hide in against a raw novice and failing to stop him.

I turned it off when he left too and watch John Ross, then put on the recording of the final while i was on esb, barely watched it.

I did that too buddy, NO joking! I switched over to BBC1, to check the teletext, seen Ross was interviewing Russell Crowe & watched that, not because of Ross, hes just an A list arselicker, but Russell Crowe fascinates me just cos of the bad press he gets etc.

I actually got a guilt trip for switching off, but for **** sake. Corbett was a hundred stone, Hide pulled out in a huff cos he got cut & the welsh boy had the cheek to fight back, Krence was stil breathing hard on the backstage camereas about half an hour after his first fight, it was AWFUL!

& then we had Nelson & Mensa boy in the studio as usual boring the socks off everyone with their 'safe' comments, & I had to turn over for the sake of my own sanity.

Im glad to know at least someone else on Brit ESB felt my pain on this one.

I reckon most of the fighters tonight could make light welterweight if they did a bit of roadwork

You're definitley not the only one. Crowe over that shite any night of the week!

Ive watched a few of the prizefighters , and it really is turning into an MMA type night , really poor quality , and just looks like fat bouncers swinging in a car park.

next thing we'll have tag team boxing....its a terrible thing for pro boxing that this circus act should be allowed to promote itself as a professional boxing tournament...
someone is going to get seriously hurt too due to the format of the thing...can you imagine if the likes of that khalid fella last night was put in with a former heavyweight belt holder and current cruiser world contender...

Pretty much an utter disgrace, could have done better finding people off the street, which by the looks of things they did.
