    Haye had me good and proper for Klit fight. Genuinely had me duped he was knocking him in to next week. Don’t think I’ve ever watched the fight again. Was a very very poor and cringy performance.

    Both Haye V Bellew fights. Was certain Haye would win. After the first fight I bought into the injury excuse. Bellew got my respect after the Usyk defeat. I thought it was a gutsy performance despite losing.

    Not a bad shout to be fair mate if it wasn’t at 145 I think cotto would have beaten him.

    then again maybe that’s the reason I no longer gamble!

    Amir Khan vs Lamont Peterson

    I recall going to bed early saying ' I'm not staying up for another cherry picked mismatch'

    Peterson looked ( well was) very mediocre losing every round to Tim Bradley and drawing with Victor Ortiz. Feather fisted too so I thought he'd be perfect for Khan. But the cherry pick went wrong!

    That was a great fight. Really enjoyed it. Also thought Khan got a really bad decision. But I'm no expert

    About 20 of us chipped in a quid each to have it round one of the lads house. ‘He’ll start throwing soon lads, trust me’ and never did.

    Khan`s defense was awful in that fight, he got caught a lot.
