Default prizefighter

Enjoyed last nights,but thought Sykes had done more than enough to get the nod.Good show though.

Terry Flannigan gave an awesome interview at the end though didn't he?

Will have a look/listen to that.The cunts in the Working mens club turned the channel over as soon as Sykes did not get the win.I was proper pissed off,yes he is a local lad and we all wanted him to get it but for ****s sake turning the channel in disgust was a bit much.Thankfully I recorded it.

It evened itself out as Sykes didnt deserve the nod over Coyle

On prizefighter does it count on your record? Im pretty sure the young lad was 16-0 going into his first fight then he was still 16-0 going into his second? Was this just a mistake by the ring announcer or was i too pissed at this point?!!

Also i know the lads compete for the 32K but do they also get paid for competing or do they do it to raise profiles etc?

Yeah I thought both fights were close and could have gone either way.

Impressed with Coyle though, thought he acquitted himself very well.

He's fighting in 3 and a half weeks again at the Hull City Hall and they're trying to get Sykes for a 10/12 round fight, Sykes fought on the last Hull City Hall undercard so I doubt it's a hard fight to make.
