I had a look pre fight and I was going to back round 9. I think it was around 9/1 - 12/1

Tell us all about it!

Im loving it bambam. The first week i was stiff out afterwards but im gettin into it now and my fitness has come on leaps and bounds. We only have one boxing session and one strength session a week but ive been running, skipping, shadow boxing and bit of weights in my own time as well. My right shoulder was acting up a bit alright tonight but thats the only negative so far. Not being smart but watching so much boxing definitely gave me an edge on some of the other lads from the start. Just already knowing the basics and little things like that. Definitely gonna be joining a club after the white collars over. Im only 22 so its not like im taking up too late in life.

22. Jaysus you're only a young pup. Sounds like you're getting a lot out of it. I take it you have the motivation to stick with it. Seems like a good buzz anyway.

How long until the big night anyway?

motivation wont be a problem I know ive only started so the buzz may wear off a bit but I love it. Im working muscles I aint used before and it feels great. Ive already got a club sorted for once I finish. Im not saying Im any good, I honestly dont know but I love the fitness aspect of it. Fight nights 30 April. Gonna need song suggestions for my ringwalk too leaning towards the Rocky choon at the min. Its tacky but it gets me going

Tommy- was thinking about running a white collar with the rugby club in the off season- one of the lads kissed my younger sister- so ive all ready called him out. But they do pretty tough fitness over the summer as it. do you reckon it would be too much to do two nights of that training as well as two nights of hard graft in the gym!

Nah be original Tommy. Get something you want for a ringwalk. If it was me I'd have 'I'm too ***y' by Right said Fred or '**** like a Beast' by WASP

I'd love to give it a go and I've trained hard before. I've good cardio and a hard head but my body is soft as **** (apart from the important area smart ****s!) from all the gargle.

I think Kiko would make for a very good scrap with Carl but there is no need to rush and the traditional route of British, Commonwealth, European then world would be right and give Carl the chance to build reputation and experience and not get taken advantage of in negociations.

Also, quite excited at the prospect of Mike Perez taking part in the international prizefighter. It could prove perfect for him at with the situation here at home it could well prove one of his few chances for serious advancement. Rankings wise I think the Cubans have gone as far as they can in Ireland.

Good man Tommy as you are our own East Side Boxing (ESB) boxer I was think we could call you Tommy "Electric" O C and you ring walk could be "Fight the power"

What ye think

Lads how good was Steve Collins in your opinion? I believe he is one of the most underestimated Irish sports stars of all time, I can't remember when was the last time i watched a boxing match on sky sports without somebody making reference to the "great" Benn and Eubanks and Collins beat the both of them, He was hard as nails. I'd just like to get some other peoples thoughts

Johnny if theyre in good shape Id say theyd be able for it. I mean i wasnt in any shape when i started but now after a few weeks i could definitely take 4 sessions. Its about whether they have the dedication and time with work, family etc.
