I think it was a decent idea, but like anything in this counntry, they have ripped the **** out of it. Too many shows in too little time. 1 or 2 a year would have kept people interested in the format.

Horrific I hate it with a passion. And the worst bit was that John Lewis ****inson just made the easiest 32k ever and Nick Okoth, Nick bloddy Okoth just made 16k. That's a disgrace. And the worst bit is with purses like that they are attracting fighters who should not touch the thing with a barge poll.

The matchmaking was just awful.
Zahid Kahut looked like he'd never been in a fight in his life.
Darren Corbett was ridiculously out of shape.
****inson the winner was decent enough but the opponents he faced didn't look like they were up for it.

Hide's cut and pulling out was just karma for such awful matchmaking.

Funny thing is, comms mentioned something about Corbett losing 4 stone in the last two weeks to make weight for prizefighter, the mind boggles.

Possibly the worst pro fighter (Zellenof excepted) that I have ever seen step through the ropes and just shows how **** Krence is in that he couldn't get him out of there. The bloke thought he was the love child of Roy Jones and Junior Witter for ****s sake .

Missed most of it but managed to catch one round and it was some fella called Zied? Or something anyway.

He was so bad it was hilarious, he didnt even know how to stand up properly!! He didnt even seem to know basics that you learn in a gym within a month. You do worry a bit that one of these will get seriously hurt soon.

He threw the slowest punches I have ever seen. I didn't even know it was possible for someone to be that slow when throwing punches

He didn't telegraph them he sent the message by pigeon post, slowest thing I ever saw with absolutely no snap and he was still catching MK who looks shot to **** to be honest...I loved that he was trying to throw outrageous uppercuts from funky angles. Krence should have been embarrassed that he couldn't beat the living **** out of him. I was watching the fight with a mate who had popped round for a few beers and all he said was "what the ****"...fair comment

I thought I heard the commentator say that he is a lawyer

He was terrible. Line of the night from Darke before the last round: "Anyone putting money on Zahid, even at 33/1 needs to be led away by men in white coats."

Saying he was in slow motion doesn't do it justice. I like how he still tried to look like an Ingle fighter with such slow hands complete nut job.

Krence maybe didn't want a personal injury claim

Not sure what would have happened if he (the Asian guy) had ended up being in with Hide..... could have been seriously hurt.

All joking aside because the guy was terrible, but it is irresponsible of the promoters and the board to allow the possibility of a world title contender being in with the lowest of low level journeymen.

He wasn't a Tony Booth type journeyman.... he was the type that Booth would eat alive in about ten seconds.
