    Buchanan-Duran considering Ken lost a bollock in the process.

    Luscious Lopez, I don't get you; you appear a troll, but are knowledgable :good

    I agree with the sentiments already expressed; Honeyghan fought a top level operator in Starling and had become too gung-ho post Curry.

    Naz Vs Barrera is similar. Barrera is an ATG and Naz won a couple of rounds, not humiliating IMO.

    Khan-Prescott was the worst, without a doubt. Prescott looked shocking in the only footage we had of him (against Abril) Khan was being hyped to death, first night on Box office, one of the most brutal decimations of recent years which made some question whether or not a fighter with as bad a chin as he had/has should be legally cleared to fight....:lol:

    Despite Azumah Nelsons reputation at the time, I imagined he got a shellacking for getting blasted out so early?? Can Gaz or someone confirm whether or not this was the case? :good

    Not an excuse, as I think Starling (with hindsight) would of won comfortably anyway. But near the end of the first round, Honeyghan was unlucky in that he was caught with a punch that damaged a nerve ending in his face, and it killed Honeyghan's fight plans.

    That result was a shock at the time. Nelson was seen as a decent puncher but Cowdell had been 15 rounds with the great Sal Sanchez. Most picks were for the fight to go late.

    Looking back Cowdell had been fighting at 130 for the previous couple of years and dropping back down to 126 at that stage in his career may have had an effect on his punch resistance.

    Bruno-Tyson II was a really, really sad way for Big Frank's career to end. The poorest performance of his career, where he clearly was intimidated and didn't show any of the fire or form of previous fights.

    Tyson was such a heavy favourite that you wanted Bruno to do something good, bit like their '89 fight, but it was just one-sided.

    Great example of the cold nature of the fight game. Bruno didn't deserve that finale, but got it.

    IMO Khan vs. Prescott, massive build up, all this talk about how the new trainer has added new things to his game, PPV even though it was against a totally unknown opponent and he gets flattened in half a round, I can't think of anything more humiliating really.

    It's the best thing that ever happened to him though.

    In years to come it'll be one of those ''Where were you when.....'' occasions - like when England next win a penalty shoutout or something.

    True, a perfect wake up call for him.

    Please use a more accurate analogy like Jesus coming back or maybe Leeds to win the Champions League.

    2015 mate.

    You heard it here first :deal

    Beat Chelsea on penalties, John Terry needs to score to keep them in it and ends up putting the ball into orbit.

    Everything about that fight makes me cringe! From some of Mitchells comments in the build up, to that gay poster they made, to the X-Factor contestant murdering the national anthem, not forgetting that hideous rendition of 'Blowing Bubbles'....:patsch

    The Hatton/Pac one was sooooooo bad. I was actually embarrased.

    All the talk of the mayweather loss being down to the weight and cortez, then Hatton saying put your house on him.

    Thing was I actually thought Hatton had a real good chance, i cant belive it now but i convinced myself Hatton would be too strong and rough and would drag pac into a dirty, rough affair that would favour ricky.

    Then he got absoloutley massacred, after i'd been beating the drums for him for several months to anyone whod listen
