    Atta boy Dutchie. That didn't hurt did it?!
    Broadly agree with notable exceptions:

    Harsh on Luke Keeler, very harsh.
    Yet you big up Conrad Cummings??? Makes no sense. I haven't seen keeler live yet but I'd pick him to beat Cummings, who for me is overrated.
    And "still undecided" about Carl Frampton....you're a hard man to please in that case, Dutchie!
    Andy has only himself to blame for the title loss......you're boxing in the other guys country...on the other guys promoters bill...you've been down, twice! At SOME POINT the light must go on ..."I need to do something here".....it's not like Andy is thick or a rank beginner!!

    Remember Luke - I know it's a cliche, but in my experience luck really does even out in the long run, and one or two small things going your way at critical moments in fights etc..(as opposed to against you as has happened in the past) really CAN make all the difference.

    Aim to perfect your jab, far and away the most important punch. Stands to reason that if you've got a punch, your jab is gonna be hard too, right?
    So why not use it to good effect? Break em down, stay safe, score points AND set up the ko ...its win-win...a no-brainer.

    Glad you are amused, Luke it was meant in good sport. Seriously though, if you google images Patrick Swayne and show the pics to a few of your friends I'd be amazed if at least SOME of them didn't see the resemblance!

    (Not his stupid pretty-boy suicide-blonde public relations shots,...his "normal" short dark hair everyday photos) . Ask your ma about him. He was a SERIOUS star 20-30 years ago. Honestly.

    It’s A Bout Boxing Ireland‘ have added an further two fighters to their books ahead of their debut show.
    The promotional outfit formerly known as FS Promotions have already picked up debutant John Joyce and have also added a further two Tony Davitt-managed fighters to their roster.
    Balbriggan welter Gerard Whitehouse [5(1)-0] and Ballyfermot light welter Stephen Carroll [5(1)-0] signing on the dotted line for the outfit which offers free live television coverage via Sky channel 212.
    Both undefeated fighters are coming off career-best wins last November, with Crank making the step up to six to defeat game Spaniard Sergio Abad, and Shortty outpointing Jamesy Gorman over eight to win the Celtic Nations title.
    A debut card for ‘It’s A Bout Boxing Ireland,’ thought to be in late March or early April, is set to be announced in the near future.

    Officials for Frampton fight announced.

    Personally off the top of my head I've no major concerns about these guys. I'll have to look at the judges a bit closer yet.
    Bayless is one of the better refs.

    Any of them got "form" for rendering dodgy verdicts? Anyone got any concerns about these officials?
