How about that then Ardy - McCloskey to be our next Irish world champion - what's your take on that? It's a question I've been wanting to ask - out of the present crop of Irish boxers who will be our first world champion?

At the moment that is the million $ question. Dunne, Duddy and Lee have been derailed for the moment.Macklin, McCloskey and James Moore in America are leading the way at this time. The champions at lightwelter are weak, so McCloskey has a chance,but in reality we don't know how good or bad McCloskey is,the contest the night will tell us a lot.Who do you think yourself mick.

I still feel that Andy Lee is probably our best chance of a world title. He showed last week that there are some weaknesses in his armoury but he will need to go away and work on these. Having said that after last week I would say he is maybe 2 years away from a title fight and even that is based on him doing everything right between now and then.
I would love to see McCloskey do it. Like Paul I am a county Derry man myself, I'm not from the city. Paul played gaelic football for Dungiven and I have always been a big GAA man myself.

I agree - there is no need for an Irish forum - infact I advocate that the British forum should be changed to the British and Irish forum - although I prefer in in alphabetical order!

I know Iceman is from Chicago, so he would most likely have the newest of information (I don't know how to private message though). If anyone has heard of him looking for a rematch with Bell please post here. He's a good Irish fighter, and the world will soon learn that having a blemished record means diddley squat in boxing.
Buddy, i haven't heard much about Coyle lately but i can find out what he's up to.
I met Coyle at a benefit a few months back,he's a real nice kid and is very serious about his career.He said he got caught cold against Bell and wants a rematch but his handlers are in no rush for that.He is very confident that he can compete at the highest level but realistically i just can't see him being good enough.Time will tell

Martin Lindsay is from the lower Falls area of west Belfast.I have often heard people from that area refer to it as "Gods country", but they are unfortinately mistaken, as an area in the north of the city is actually Gods country, and that place is called Ardoyne, or Ard Eoin if you prefere.
