    This thread was good because you could only select one boxer from the weightclass so it broke it down abit more specifically

    I really rate Jessica McCaskill and she should fight Katie Taylor again she gave her a really close fight I scored it a draw it should have at least been a split decision!

    I visited Jeff Chandler last month and will see him again in October. He’s a hell of a nice guy. He’s signed so many items for my collection too, programs, posters, magazines, gloves etc;
