There was a endless party to attend, I'm pretty sure he only just left, but who knows? He may have gone back, not sure

His fight with Tom Collins was the Hagler-Hearns of the Light heavyweights.

I'm sure our Eddie Avoth ( the guy who stopped Mr Thornberry ) or Joe who stopped Mr Thornberrys boy Ricky would have had something to say about that @ L/ Heavy , truth be told I loved watching Jeff back then ( respected the hell out of him ) so won't take this debate down our normal route so will just say "Maybe " .

I'm sure Trev don't go around talking bull**** like you about his moment in the sun , he would probably have wished Eddie well in his career and his next fight with Chrissy Finnegan .

Joe Calzaghe probably fought one of his top five **** feasts v Ricky and still cruised home by a street and would have probably been too much for Harding IMO .

I'm sure Trevor is and Calzaghe was down less than a handful of times in his career ( three by legit punches ) so I doubt your second comment , you know the thornberry fight is probably the only other fight alongside the Ashira fight that is too boring to watch a second time .

Thonberry got owned by Slappy calagzie , GOOD ana PROPER ..Lets not get carried away with patriasm , because not many have actually seen the fight , it amazes me the amount of people who comment on stuff they were told ..

I ws on holiday in britain , and went to watch it, believe me Thornberry tried his best and full credit to him , he done himself proud , but Joe was at his worst and still done the job easy .
