    Hopkins said very famously of Calzaghe that he would "never lose to a white boy"

    Eubank-Benn was not even close to how dark and deep Eubank-Watson was

    After so many years of hatred ,it is nice to see that Morales and Barrera have finally buried the hatchet to become friends.

    Terry Marsh and Frank Warren...I'm sure we all know about the result of that one

    Lloyd Honeyghan and Darren Dyer....Dyer hit Honeyghan over the head with a hammer at a boxing event weigh in

    Defending Hopkins because he didn't use 'racial slurs' ...
    Clearly hypocrites not against the concept of racial hostility, just making sure it's in one direction. Is normal.
    It's a lie to say he didn't use a slur though.
    "White boi'' is a racial slur intended to diminish a white adult man. It's a reversal of the 'boy' term blacks describe as a slur towards them.
    Try to cover your hypocrisy a little better next time, goon squad.
    The way to avoid hypocrisy is to either not complain about waycism from only one group, or be outraged by it from each direction.
    Simple.

    Whats the difference then???

    Minter on Hagler..."No black man's going to take my title"

    Hopkins to Calzaghe..."I'll never lose to a white boy"

    Was it ever proven that Marsh shot Warren ? I know he was the prime suspect and he supposedly confessed to it whilst in prison.

    Lewis v Bruno got a bit ugly. Bruno was able to outwit Lennox a bit and had the British public on his side. So Lennox went in with the Uncle Tom comments and how Bruno sold out. Think Bruno was going to take him to court? The animosity showed in the fight As well, never seen frank look that fired up. Still don’t think frank is that keen on Lennox from some of the exchanges I’ve seen.
