    Froch v Pascal was another terrific fight. Scott Harrison v Manuel Medina 2 was a terrific all action fight too.

    Thirty-odd years later I still think this is my favourite domestic fight.

    It was bizarre ! So many knock downs & non-stop action. I was a huge Sibson fan. His fight with Kaylor was nothing like this, there was more scrapping between the large Sibbo following & Kaylor's West Ham supporting nutters, at a sold out Wembley Arena !

    Alexander-Samuels was on the same night as Barrera-Morales I. That was as good a night's boxing as you could wish for.

    I used to love the transatlantic dual cards that were common back in the 90s. It was far better watching something that was main evening a smaller card, than the same level fight played out in a half empty arena deep on an undercard.

    Gomez’s book is a great read for anyone who hasn’t read it. Mad career/life

    Of the last few years Buglioni v Burton was an absolute barnstormer..... which seem to get overshadowed as it was on the undercard of Whyte v Chisora 1 which was another barnstormer.

    Yep, remember it well, you used to get that a lot back in the day, still happens but not as much. Another cracking night was back in Novemeber 96 the UK card which was free was Benn-Collins 2, Naz and Herbie Hide fights then you went over to the US for the PPV and got Botha-Moorer and Tyson-Holyfield 1 all for £10.

    It's more to do with the weight imo
