Arrow So it seems Wales has more world champions than England

Interesting. When was the last time that was the case?

Yep and as far as I know Calzaghe was born in London and supported Italy. Maccarinelli isn't exactly a welsh name either, but hey Tyszu was an Aussie champ not a russian.

Going against the Welsh stereotype with that maths Pride.

But anyway I am dead chuffed that Wales has three proper world champs, well done. Great to see our British brothers coming out of our shadow once in awhile.

Yes, although if you like we'll just count lineal champs, then Wales has none.

Oh yes, let's all claim the Englishness in Calzaghe when he chose to support Italy over Eng at football and the english booing Joe when he fought Reid & Starie. Mhmm!

Still, I'm not gloating anyway - it's good for British boxing which is the important thing.

Joe can't lose to a man who has butchered the English name Michael.

David can't lose to a man who was given a name that belongs to someone who pisses sitting down!
