waldron will fight sweeney in the autume not the fall , we are in ireland arent we,sweeney has the contract , fact, puca, just wait and see bout fitz .he is as good potentially as any middleweight out there ,hes really buzzing and hes only young and learning every day. fact. pucker ,and the rest of the bill gives our fighters an advantage ovor their opponants in the sense that the boys and girls are building their careers and of course we dont want them losing and we dont want them fighting bums either so its a fine line .and a fight top the bill casey and salvini .top class fight. fact , dolphil are doing there best with limited resourses ,no television .not much goodwill from the media while still putting on good shows and producing quality fighters . fact.

its only sold in the north... and mostly in unionist or mixed areas... i live in west belfast, and have had to order it for fridays as my corner shop doesnt stock it... but it does a two to three page spread on boxing which is well worth a read

Surely Big Bang is the lb for lb hardest hitter in Irish boxing at the moment.
On a separate note - Lee V Chavez Jr anyone?

lol

his career has flopped and i can't understand why

meanwhile jacobs, who was supposed to be lee's opposite number in years to come, is passing every test with flying colours

i also don't get why paddy b is still amateur. i do understand wanting that olympic glory, but the boy could have made a tidy sum and be well on his way in the pro game by the time the 2012 games are over

Also, Lee's opponent is ranked at heavyweight.

How exactly is he going to make it to 160 in time for next Friday?

It's an odd, odd choice of opponent.
