    I missed the gym, drank too much and was longing for another free pay per pudding.

    I drank less, walked more mountains than i usually do, and got fitter than i have been for a while, and now i drive past all the places i used to eat at, because my own food tastes better and is healthier, and my hard earned is still with me for longer!!

    At a stretch i may give a thought to the ones who are feeling the pinch!!

    These PPV stars need all our support...

    The Hobson drive in idea is very clever.

    Hearn/Warren really do seem to need crowds to keep the standard of fights up. No news on venues for the scheduled PPVs yet.

    It’s a tough time for everyone but soon the likes of Joshua are going to have either fight abroad (the Middle East)or take a pay cut. You can’t take years off especially at the lower weights.

    Nope, crowds won't be back until next summer in the UK.

    Apparently cases are rising again, it's nearly the start of flu season, flu will be automatically called Covid.. also cold weather will bring normal coughs and colds but they will be at minimum seen as "symptoms" and then it will just be enforced isolation.

    We have the ridiculous "rule of 6, that makes no sense to me so no way will there be crowds allowed to gather at sporting events.

    Unless, UNLESS.. all sports fans get together and plot and plan, pretend to be protesting at these sporting events for Black Lives Matter and that will be fine.

    Have "protests" inside stadiums, the police won't intervene, the government will let it slide, so my Sports loving buddies, get yourself a BLM banner or tshirt and turn up to sporting events and DEMAND they let you in or they are RACIST.

    Yeah, if you want a huge social gathering then just do it under the banner of a BLM protest as apparently that is fine and doesn't spread covid. You can even desecrate war memorials, vandalize property and assualt coppers and innocent bystanders while your at it and the media will call you peaceful. Then to top it all off not only will the police not arrest you, they kneel down before you and kiss your arse.

    But do something really serious like have a BBQ or kids birthday party and plod will be on you like a shot.
