    i really hope Jamies next fight is for the world title because he is going to be beaten by somebody very ordinary very soon,
    The belfat lads showed the dubs how to do it tonight but two good fights,lots of heart,desire and limitations shown,hope we get to see fights like that on every upcoming card, Barnes doesnt seem to be fitting into the pro game as effortlessly as he did the WSB and seems to get frustrated easily by these journeymen tactics,
    Anybody at the event what size and type of crowd was there, didnt seem overly crowded or atmospheric on the box but that can be deceiving,

    Great night of boxing but unfair on lads with poor crowd less than half full. With the quality of fights put on they deserved a packed house and electric atmosphere to fight infront of. Geraty Tennyson was fight of night and I'd say gerarty will be kicking himself today for getting involved. His recovery after both knock down was class , he's decision to stand with him again to prove not hurt is what cost him the fight. He boxed beautiful at distance and seemed to be cruising st stages, both his defeats where caused by same attitude getting mixed up im sure will learn lesson now and push on. Hanney did very well and hurt Mckenna badly in second but said himself he beat himself due to lack of hard work faded and Mckenna was able to take control as he faded.

    Yea easy to say from outside looking in , but I learned the hard way and I'm sure won't make same mistake again or even better hopefully won't have to experience being dropped again

    That sparring partner also said Eric Donovan was the best of the lot of them. Oh, er, missus!

    They wouldn't take it. Which is fair enough, eyes on British title for them.

    Plus Tenny can't make Feather anymore.

    Disgraceful. Conlon and Barnes banned from boxing here...on the "advice" of our taxpayer-funded police force! Talk about throwing the baby out with the bath water!
