    Mine is Tom Jones being interviewed before the Hatton v PAC fight and he went in depth about how Hatton was going to knock PAC the f***out ( I am pretty sure he used those words specifically) Hatton then got knocked out badly himself. Now every time someone is interviewed before a boxing match, I nearly always get reminded of Tom. I am used to it now as it has been about 15 years. It does seem odd that out of all the boxing I have watched, my main recurring memory is of a Welsh singer who got a prediction badly wrong.

    Am I just an oddball or does anyone else have a pointless boxing memory etched on their brain?

    I remember back in 2012 it must have been on another forum they pulled some pictures from Adrien Broners social media this is just as he was making a name for himself.

    It was him sitting on the end of his bed when he was probably late teens and he had a picture of pacquiao on his wall.

    Forever lost but i remember the picture clearly.

    Bobby Pacquiao, an incorrigible career-long testicular gland-slaughter recidivist, desperately pleading "it not a blow-blow!!" after blatantly full-on Golotaing the cojones of poor Héctor Velázquez.

    I keep getting war flashbacks to Devin Vargas v Victor Bisbal because Bisbal's (280 lbs) shorts were constantly slipping down and despite the referee's and corner's attempts to tape the shorts up his ass crack was on full display for much longer than was needed.

    On the under card of the Mundine Green fight in 2006 there was a fat corner man who had the VB logo painted on his gut and was wearing a VB hat. His man got stopped and I guess he thought that it was a premature stoppage so he screamed "Ripped Off!" into the camera. I will never forget that @WhataRock

    For some reason, the first thing that popped into my head was when Floyd Mayweather Senior was in De La Hoya's corner for a fight, forgot which, and his between-rounds instructions included telling Oscar "look man, Oscar........then rolled his tongue and went blzzzzzzzzapp!.........blzzzzzzzzzappp! Which apparently meant throw fast combos lol anyone remember that?

    Povetkin before the Whyte fight said that despite the fight being called a battle of the left hooks, the left hook would not be the punch to look out for.

    Yeah that sounds pretty lame. I have many, but one of my favorites was Chad Dawson's in ring interview immediately after stopping B-Hop (which was later changed to a Tech Draw)
    But Hopkins was rolling around, pretending his shoulder was hurt, and Dawson called him a "p-ssy" when he refused to get up.
    Then during the post fight interview Dawson said BHop "ain't no gangsta" and that "a gangsta would have got up and fought me like a man"

    It was honestly the only time ever heard anyone mocking BHop like that and challenging his manhood, and for whatever reason I've never been able to find a replay clip of it. Almost like everyone else seemed to miss it.

    I'm definitely a BHop fan, but gotta give props to Dawson, he was definitely the real gangsta in that ring on that night....and the rematch too

    What about bebut shemenov? "Staring across the ring without a trainer, as he is his own trainer." Lol lmao he was self taught. The camera angle was golden.

    What about lol cool j hyping up Shane Mosley for the Pacquiao match? Massive d riding. Performed an awesome rendition of mama said knock you out but unfortunately pacman was the winner that night.

    Also Naseem not wanting to stop the fight on Mosley's foot blister.

    And Mosley claiming PAC was the p4p king after the match.
