Like you shouldn't pretend England dont contribute and maybe just be a bit grateful for it too.

In no way was Taylor winning by more. It was a close fight going in to the last round.

This is revisionist History.

As for Gazza it is worrying to be sure.

Terrance Crawford.. Vacate the belt billy.. Broner hasn't got shit on this man.

Crawford the next boxing superstar out of America, you mark my words, you beat him Billy that's a bigger scalp than Broner the mans class...

This is very true (and also off topic of the thread).

However what you fail to mention is that it is pretty much impossible for us to qualify these days giving our seeding and the groups we are drawn.

Ask yourself this, would England have qualifed from our last few groups? The year we had Italy and France (both world cup finalists from the previous tournament) the answer is NO.

I'm not having a dig or rant I'm merely pointing out that the seedings are geared towards helping the so called bigger nations qualify.

The only way we can get, lets be honest, PISH EASY groups like you do is to climb the rankings. We really need to qualify for a mjor tournament again to do that. Beating the Czech's will help but it won't provide miracles. We are years and years away from competing in all honesty.

I pretty much agree with all of that.

I am not down on Scotland, was just defending England.

I actually have Scotish herittage and my surname is part of the largest Clan.

Just generally think Salmon is full of shit.

Taylor was maybe a point or two up Billy, how many rounds did you score to Ricky in the Gonzalez fight? Pretty sure Ricky had lost every single round until the pull out so it's not a great comparison.

Also, Froch knocked Taylor out whereas Gonzalez pulled himself out, and I don't remember Taylor asking for a rematch either! He would have got one in the super 6 had he continued.

Agree with most of the other things you say, Burns is a level above Mitchell both physically and mentally.

Fight should really have been waved of after the Knockdown as he was in no position to continue at the time and you can't be saved by the bell.

He looked classy in spells but also rusty in others. was clearly looking to get the rounds in as there were a few times where you felt he could have killed it off.

The guy was tough and certainly earned his money.

With a decent trainer and some confidence building I feel he could be more than an 'opponent'.

As for Mitchell would love to see him against Crolla.

Be good to see how he is doing after a few more fights...understand he's probably a bit rusty...maybe the plan is to go for Crolla agree would be a good fight.

I was there, leaning over the balcony watching.

He does get hit too much but half the time its almost as if he wants to taste a bit of leather.

At times his defensive work is a joy to watch. his bobbing and weaving is excellent. In offence he punches very very correctly with excellent snap and is well balanced.

All in the Head with Kev!!!
