I dont know if you can criticise someone for having pride in their religion and I have a feeling he did just to piss people like you off. To be honest even though Im not Muslim and didnt understand a word of it, showed the guy had balls.

What we should be up in arms about is how biased the commentary was, if you dont like someone then fine but it was shameful how they were praising Bradley for getting punched and outworked. Stoppage, what a load of nonsense but whats even worse is that I wasnt surprised by it.

keep sports and religeon separate...

as for anthony small, he looked ok in the first couple of rounds, but he just does not have enough natural ability to pull off that kind of fighting style. its like he made a decision to imitate roy jones jr before he made the decision to learn how to box.
Well said -

Agreed the commentary was so biased towards bradly pryce.Small tried to fight off the ropes and hes not slick enough to do so.He should re learn the basics instead of watching roy jones jnr tapes.

I think boxing and religion should be kept seperate to some extent.Theres nothing wrong with being proud about your religion bu hearing a boxer praise allah/jesus/satan for being punched in the head for 30 minutes is really annoying

How was the stoppage a disgrace?


He was clattered, hurt, being continually punched in the face, not punching back...seconds from being out cold and in hospital with permanent damage.

These refs are here to protect boxers. As soon as a boxer takes a savage beating like that it has to stop. He wasn't defending himself or throwing back FFS. Pryce would have either put him in a grave or a wheelchair - it was a good call.

Calzaghe last fight was a disgraceful stoppage.

Absolute rubbish,he was trying some sort of crap rope-a-dope tactic....he got caught, obviously pryce is not a big hitter, because small didnt even look like going down, he stayed on his feet and if the ref hadnt jumped in would have recovered almost straight away. Why not give small a standing eight (is that allowed) if he thought he was getting clattered.

in the post fight interview, although again chatting like a knob, small seemed perfectly fine, and that was just after the rediculous stoppage.

this should have been a cracking fight which I am sure Pryce would have done well in, but a legitimate stoppage - no way. I dont even like Small and prefer the limited Pryce but the viewing public (who cares about us) were robbed.

Balls? Everyone seems to be a muslim these days like its a new fad! There all walking around in there burkha`s like its a new age thing or some show of defiance.Seeing as things are quite sensitive and tentative in regards to the subject of Muslims id say it was VERY distasteful.There is NO connection between boxing and a mans religion.

He is exactly what boxing needs I agree. I really like his style and he is obviously highly skilled. Its unfortunate he got a dodgy refereeing decision. I was scoring the fight very closely at the time, and I had him two points behind. Which means he would have had to have won every round bar one from then in to win the fight. Unlikely, I think but not impossible. What cost him the fight was laying on the ropes and being lazy.

A fighter should be stopped if they are so badly hurt they are unable to continue. Small as stated already was playing with Pryce and pretending to be hurt. Small was able to continue when it was stopped if you watch the fight...

Are you suggesting that the late start time of this fight may have affected the refs judgement?

that should be on the bad ass moves thread
left hook right hand left hook and flump anthony started pedalling backwards while pryce just waits for him i hope pryce does get a title tilt later in his career he is the guy i like has no disrespect but doesnt like the guy either

whats wrong with you should we pick up the teachings from are lord and walk down the street carrying a 7 foot crucifix...dude it's only a religeon it means a set of rules people belive in....thats it it doesnt mean your a good boxer or not it doesnt mean that you will be bombed it doesnt not mean that it's us vs them it's typical non relations with islam to the commmunity...i agree with you that there is this defince thing but still im sure they are muslim and have faith in the koraan

exactly this is what pisses me off about mundine lovers he has athletic abilty but no or limted boxing skills. now if you look at roy jones the guiy was born and bred in the gym his father sent him there eveyr day training or not training just taking in the atmosphere he was a world class boxer with a pedigree he was a great boxer (in the technical term not just a man who laces gloves) with a smart head and a fine tuned body these men dont have it but have the athleticism to do so.i hope small learns from this and comes back better than before a proper article.
anyways i hope he says to himself he was hrt but was abble to continue

but also danny williams always says "praise allah for the victory"...i have no quarms about that he shows he is muslim but doesnt mix it with boxing.
