    This ****'s quickly turning into a full-blown creep. Maybe there was a change in him after he "saw the Bronze Bomber" up close.

    Fair enough.

    He acknowledged himself he phrased it poorly and it had been grating for many watching.

    Davies is someone who has neither talent as a writer nor any great boxing knowledge or affection for the sport.
    Bunce has great knowledge and affection and is also a decent writer....though with a tendency to be a vulgarian and write about boxers as inadequate chancers and the whole sport as a circus carnival. Bunce's questions in the post fight BT interview were banal and crass. However Bunce has his place still.

    Bunce is doing a good job with the post Costello BBC podcast. He's toned down the carnival barker act and is showing that beneath it there's someone with sound boxing knowledge and a genuine love for the sport. Deserves some acknowledgement.

    Great post. The only thing I'd add is Gareth A Davies is someone who has immense talent as a writer, and great boxing knowledge. Also his affection for the sport is clear to see.

    I liked him on the boxing first ITV2 days...i think it was late 1998 or early 1999 and those of us without SKY had been starved of watching boxing for 4 years so that 1 and a half hour programme showing top American world champions like Mosley and Jones jnr was a godsend.And it was all in the new HD digital pictures.
    Bunce talking on that show calmly was like being on a boxing forum which in early 1999 I didnt have access to at home...besides which most forums sprung up that year and beyond it tended to be yahoo pages before

    They don't call him Gareth the Arsehole Davies for nothing.

    Good on him for asking. What's wrong with it?

    Every time Tyson fights/wins, he sodding mental health ALWAYS becomes an issue. So much so that he's written a fcuking book about it.

    Why not ask him? I mean, if he never thought it'd happen to him, why would he ask him such a question?

    Hahaha what’s the harm in that? At least that’s funny, he knows he’s fat and doesn’t care so it’s poking fun at himself. It’s not like Carl Froch lifting his top up all the time to prove how good his abs still are. I don’t mind his work but I’ve never been his biggest fan as his he just seems toO posh. A posh man watching usually poor kids batter each other doesn’t sit right. After seeing that video of Froch and him and now this I like him more. Im so childish haha.
