Default Talk about "swings and roundabouts".....

...first of all it was a great nights boxing BUT I found myself agreeing with Steve Bunce (who I detest) over Richie Woodhall (who I think is a great commentator) but Rees was 4 to 6 rounds behind going into the 12th IMHO.

Yes Rees was gone. You could see Joe Calzaghe knew it to in his face when the interviewed him in between rounds.

Bunce was close with the scoring, Woodhall was way out with his score card, Rees looked busy but so many shots were taken on the arms and gloves. Like most i think Bunce is an arse, but tonight he did make sense, which obviously happens now and again and tonight was one of those occasions.

Richie may have got carried away a tiny bit with his view of the fight, but at least he didn't behave like a c**t. I am getting seriously fed up with Setanta's insistence on using Steve Bunce. When you bear in mind that they only showed two fights in order to fit in the gargoyle faced bell end, you've got to start wondering what's going on at Setanta.

Yeah for once Bunce was right , Rees give it his best shot and i thought he fought valiantly, there is no shame in the way he fought tonight!!

If i was Rees i would go down to the Lightweight division, he was a average puncher at super featherweight and up at light welter he is pissing in the wind.

I wonder if Khan wants Kotelnik? After his performance tonight i would make him a favourite over Khan.

Well done kotelnik.
But lets be serious.
Rees was one of the weakest world champs out there.

He was but you can see why Kotelnik gave Witter all that he could handle. He is a good fighter.

I have nothing but the utmost respect for Rees, plus my partner is Welsh and she makes me support anything and everything that is Welsh!

Yep, he really impressed me tonight. I think he'd beat Khan at the moment.

Rees was outlanding at times though, It wasn't that wide as Bunce had It. Or don't body shots get scored enough?

I think that to, i think Kotelnik fought like a better version of Willie Limond, and i could see him walking Khan down and picking him apart to a late stoppage
