I am extremeley happy for Enzo and Joe.

I liked the answer Joe gave to the "how have you stayed at the top for so long" question:

"I'm just boring I guess... I just box"

Don't tell me my 3,500 phone bill was a waste of money.

It just goes to show that more and more of the Scotch are getting round to installing telephones.

i'm happy to see the great man get his long deserved accolades CHJ. how such a great fighter receives less press than jokes like fraudley is perplexing. joe's deserving of the big paydays about to come his way.

This is a victory for everyone involved in boxing. The image of the sport we love is making all the right headlines again... Hatton's amazing army of fans, the amount of title holders we have and now this with Joe & Enzo. Beautiful night.

Let Khan and the likes of Audley have their column inches - Calzaghe has achieved this award through nothing but his boxing: no gimmicks, no story that captured the nations attention, no clever PR, this award is testament to his sporting skill - and it's about f*cking time!

I do feel a little sorry for Witter though. He constantly has to sit there and hear his peers talking about the other champions without mentioning him.

For once our country votes for a winner, too many galiant losers have won it over the years. Long overdue!
