Default The Sports Network Show Discussion Thread

better than having several threads about tonights action...



i see that boney scouser just won by first round ko. decent body hooks, but poor poor opposition. did derry have to take one punch there?

and did the commentator just say something about derry being guided towards a british title shot

The more the merrier! ITV are staying true to form, over half an hour of program, about two minutes of boxing. And that was ****.

what did you expect...it was the world ( )featherweight champion against a georgian journeyman.

but the next one should be a *******. i've got a feeling jennings may be able to catch minter for a mid-round stoppage.

edit: woops..didn't realise you couldn't say cra*ker. the next one should be an exciting fight is what i meant!

really good fight. jennings didn't look as controlled as he normally does but this made the fight even more entertaining. i thought it might end in a ko for jennings...

minter has no chin. 2 stoppage defeats in a row - i don't think theres anywhere to go.

great finish by jennings. lost his way a bit in the middle rounds, but was never really in serious trouble.

Jennings is definitely an "on top" fighter. Showed good finishing instincts & picked some very nice punches. He looks the total package at times, wonder where he'll go next.

the commentry is useless.
they panic whenever sinclair throws a punch instead of just calling the fight unbias

Once again we get over an hour of Mgiug****er talking **** while guys are boxing in the background, absolute disgrace.

Decent show though, some cracking quick fights.

Derry is very good but its a shame FW could not have got him an opponent instead of a Top Shop manakin.

Marsh looks useful but his opponent was also dissapointing.

Minter showed guts and may go on to tackle for an English belt or an unlikely pop at British. There is a lot of competion in that division though. Him vs Mark Thompson would be a fair old s****, nice eliminator?

Jennings looked better than I remember him being and has very good talent. I still can not see him making an impression World wise. Maybe he's the new Eastman but without the title shots.

I can not really qoute on the Khan match yet as the apathy of it all has not died down yet. The commentators tried to make it sound like WW3.
