Default Michael Gomez vs Alex Arthur

Arguably the best fight in a British ring this decade (although im slightly biased being a big Gomez fan) This fight is jaw dropping every time you watch it. Not keen on young Alex but both guys went to hell and back in this one.

Cheers for the link a classic fight this one.

The same kind of outcome in the Khan fight would be great.

Gomez v Arthur - really great domestic fight.

Expect ITV will be saying how Gomez previously beat the current WBO Champ in their build up to the Khan bout and so this is a real test for him....

EXACTLY the word I would use

I'm a Mancunian and supported Gomez on the night but by the end I was screaming at Arthur to get his damn right hand up

That left of Gomez could not miss

The naivety from Arthur was quite something, he was hugely unprepared for Gomez. He's done remarkably well to win a world title after that shellacking

I almost don't like watching this one, it was a bit nasty, not sure why but I really felt it

A great fight is all that can be said!



Far better fighters than Gomez would have cracked under the pressure of the hostile crowd but he seemed to thrive on it that night.


Thought he was a total ***** before the fight but had to give him massive credit after it.


Hope he has one last decent performance in him Khan but im not hopefull.

I would say one of the most exciting fights I have ever watched. I thought Arthur was gonna come back, since that fight he has completley changed his style.

I was there, the atmosphere was electric and very hostile. After the fight there was police in riot gear wacking everybody. Best fight i have been to and the best atmosphere i have seen at a fight, and i have been to many
