that step up to heavyweight proved to be a bittersweet victory in hindsight given the toll it took on RJJ body.

He should have retired after winning the heavyweight title.

Such an incredible contrast in the career of Roy Jones Jr. Great video, it's really well done.

Look the commentating was shit as always, but the punditry was decent, they were realistic and accurate in their analysis.

Dunne was decent i didn't rate the others tbh. Didn't feel they understood Dunne's thought. The commentating is my main bug bear not the punditry.

I thought the commentary was pretty hilarious in the McCloskey-Morrison fight but nothing compares to the pair of clowns we had on Premier last night.

Dont like the commentating myself.I like Jimmy Magee but he talks an huge amount of shite, and is not the most knowledgable of commentators. Dave McCauley isnt great either, but i suppose some of the shite the sky team talk is hardly top class punditry either.

Did they mention how body shots are much more hurtful and how most people don't know this?... Can't quite remember?
