Dunno how it would compare but it was electric. The Bute fans played their part in that, obviously both sections feed off each other and the home fans felt the need to drown them out

Small arena helps.

Better than Tszyu Hatton, better than Calzaghe v Lacy not as good as Cotto v Mosley at MSG, which is the best boxing atmosphere I've experienced.

For pure drama (if not atmosphere obviously) it doesn't top the Taylor fight which I was lucky enough to be ringside for too

Best boxing atmosphere I've experienced and I've been to around 14 world title fights in the last 4 years - Surpassed Froch - Pascal and that was a good atmosphere

Great atmopshere, the Bute fans were making a fair bit of noise themselves! I would say Ricky Burns vs Roman Martinez was the best I have ever experienced.

I actually thought it was shit up until Froch took to that little ramp for his ring walk then when 'No easy way out' came on the place erupted. The fight started and the 1st round the crowd were as cagey as the fighters themselves then when Froch started the assault in the 2nd the crowd got into gear and then the 4th round it went crazy and the 5th well just was awesome, everyone up on the chairs!

The undercard was awful, the only highlight being Sugar Ray doing a ring walk too.

Great atmosphere on Saturday.
Not quite as good as Hatton v KT, but there was double the capacity at the MEN

Both were unforgettable nights

Not as good as Khan-McCloskey IMHO or even probably Froch-Abraham, but very good.

not as good as ali vs foreman in zaire and i'd say the 2nd fight between louis vs schmelling was probably a bit better. the stadium was buzzing that night, i'd put it on par with sugar ray vs lemotta 4.
