It was amazing once no easy way out started... I actually fell asleep during the undercard though, terrible fights throughout until the main event.

One of the best fights I've been to. Nottingham was superb as well. Hopefully get back down for the next defence.

Looks a great venue. Must me intimidating as hell for the travelling fighter. Especially with Saturday's crowd.

For a pint and a burger? That's not too bad.

Amazing totally amazing it was only my second world title fight and the quality of boxing was not better than July 16th last year when you had Mitchell v Murray, Bellew v McKenzie II and other good fights but the atmosphere was immense and i shivers up my spine. You understand why people love this sport and i will be making alot more but my dad has seen 152 world title fights and he said atmosphere was as good as Bruno v McCall at Wembly stadium.

Only down fall was someone who had cheap seats thought they could nick our seats and we had to full on argue with them to move.

Great atmosphere., especially with the Bute fans giving it too it allowed the two sets of fans to feed each other. But there have been night with better atmosphere.

Say what...? I was at AA and Bute and Bute was miles better. Against AA it was not the same, far too many people there for a night out, with nothing invested in the fighters, not caring really. (Not their fault, loads were there for Helenius).

This is how good it was on Saturday: I never heard Rachel Cordingley clearly once
