    Anybody catch Nevin v Fonseca? Stylish performance from Nevin. Any opinions...it was on channel 5 . I didn't know they did boxing. Pleasant surprise.

    John Joe Nevin should be a PPV star now. The man must be the most talented boxer ever to come out of Ireland.

    However, he's completely wasted his career. It's been a total car crash due to problems outside the ring. A real shame to see.

    He's 31 now and surely it's too late to do anything of note. It's very frustrating to see. That man had a bit of everything.

    Yep I can't help but feel his career will go the Paddy Barnes root

    Or like Scott Harrison, but without any of the achievements.

    James Tennyson could be a good opponent for him next, he's 31 in June so I think, realistically, he has 6 or 7 fights left in him and maybe a shot at a World title if he can really push on, sadly I think it's too late.

    Except Nevin turned over at the perfect time. Got himself a good promotional deal in America, looked ready to set the world alight and then got sucked back into traveller feuding and going on the ****. A real shame.
