    I will be attending although I hope he fights a better fighter than Vanda There really is nothing like the atmosphere of a Duddy fight at the "world's greatest arena", the combination of an exciting fighter and the big city make it electric. I went to the Campas, Cuevas, and Bonsante fights. I really hope Andy Lee is on the card. An irish american fighter who I believe is from Hells Kitchen named Mcdermott might be on the card. It will also be fun to see Wlad live plus he will draw a lot of Eastern European fans, which inevitably will fight with Duddy fans.

    Are a New York Irish American? Will you travel to Ohio to cheer Duddy on against Pavlik. I'm from Belfast, but I hope to be there myself.

    Yea Irish American, I go to a lot of the fights from Boston to Ny. After Micky Ward retired I instantly began to follow Duddy from very early on his career, which I believe many Irish Americans are doing now. Duddy and Pavlik will be a big fight but I can't possibly see it being anywhere other than the east coast. By the way if your interested you can check out a new book called Irish Thunder the Hard Life and Times of Micky Ward if your interested in Irish American boxing. The irish have such a rich history in boxing in the U.S., but unfornately it is a thing of the past.

    I was at The Kings Hall Belfast for Duddy's last fight. About 3000 of the 6500 tickets were sold to Derry men.The Derry people get behind there sports people.

    Thank you ml, I'm very interested in Irish-American boxing. I will try to get my hands on a copy of that book. I was a bought a recently published book called Legends Of Irish Boxing for Christmas. I cant recommend it as I am yet to read it, but it has grabbed a lot of favorable attention and critical acclaim in the local press.

    Don,t worry mate, the Irish fans will respect your national anthem,even though I dont respect you or your ill advised comments. The middleweight title is on loan until Duddy comes to rip it away from "chinny" Pavlik.
