Default The return of Alex Arthur

Arthur coming back to face McDonagh in Glasgow. Undercard of burns-Martinez. He's been sparring with Limond.

Is it time to call it quits?

Defo, what chance has he got if he cant convincinly beat someone who has lost 18 of 33 fights. Even if he did beat Gomez. Im sure Gomez was prob hungover or something lol

Bizarre ending to the fight, you should check it out. Basically Gomez had enough, put his arms down and walked towards his corner. McDonagh hits him about a dozen times before he goes down, Gomez gets up and his corner stop it.

Anyway, no disgrace for Arthur if he can't stop McDonagh.

I was watching Arthur and Limond on Tuesday and both looked good. I should think he'll get a clear points victory in this one

Feel quite bad for Arthur. He wouldnt be in this place if he didnt have soooo much smoke blown up his ass early on in his career. Since the Gomez beating he's never been the same. He's been found wanting ever since. ****** got him a route to a title and he got schooled by Nicky Cook. Now he fights once a year. Its over Arthur. Retire with your dignity or start taking boxing seriously again.

Exactly, mcdonagh's no mug. Really like and respect arthur but im not sure where he's going with this comeback. If he has something left good luck to him but really he's done everything at domestic/european level so his only motivation has to be world level which looks a long way away

Domestic/Euro is his level.

It's also Cook's level, and he beat Arthur easily, it wasn't even close.

A man that loses to Nigel Wright shouldn't delude himself into thinking he's in with a chance of a run at world level, even in an average division like 135.

Boom. I actually think he may have a screw loose. I know he's a devout Christian but the guy is really deluded. He tends to think that he is some kind of ambassador for god and hence his route to success in boxing is divine. O k Alex.
