    Can be anyone from a ref, to a fighter, to a journalist, to a promoter.

    Fire away...

    I don`t lie Eubank Jr or Sr, they no nothing about boxing and Jr was missing at times by miles with his right hand against DeGale but somehow he`s a world beater again because he beat a big name, a pair ofcasuals with good reflexes the pair of them.

    Tbh there’s nobody I “can’t stand”. Nobody who would force me to switch off if they were on TV or YouTube.

    But I dislike Charlie Edwards. His win last year over Rosales was great and I loved watching it but his IG posts are irritating.

    I don’t like Kid Galahad.

    I don’t like Paddy Barnes although I guess he’s not British.

    I don’t like Anna Woolhouse and think she should be removed from Sky’s boxing coverage.

    Eubank is world level like it or not.

    Nobody is saying that the version of Degale he fought was still world level.

    But Saunders and Groves were and Saunders beat him on a SD which I had as a draw and Groves was hanging on for dear life in the final round, even though he won clearly on points.

    World level fighters don’t get pushed to the brink like that by “casuals with good reflexes”.

    Ah yes. Part of me dies inside everytime I see Crolla’s name on a big PPV undercard.

    Bully Joe Saunders
    Galahad

    Others that aren't my cup of tea but 'can't stand them' is maybe a tad strong:

    Conor Benn
    Whyte
    Fowler (by pushing his watered down cannabis product & ignorantly dismissing the need for THC content in curing illnesses such as cancer. And he's an arrogant twat).

    The more I read it the more this annoys me
    Eubank was a good boxer
    Solid power, played mind games with best of them, one of the hardest chins about at the time (not many took the punches and stayed up that Nigel Benn chucked at him)
    I just don't understand the comment

    Connor Benn, Billy Joe, Galahad for their personalities.
    Yarde and company for continually linking themselves to world champions only to fight bin men.
    Adam Smith - I can almost predict what he will say at any presser.
    Crolla, Ricky Burns , Quigg and Fowler for their fighting styles.

    Special shout out to Marcus McDonnell. Just the way he holds his arms in the ring , and the worst part .... does a parrot squawk before shouting 'stop boxing' . If he is in charge of a match between 2 fighters who hold a lot, you know your gonna want to self harm by the end of it.

    Eubank Jr and Whyte for me
    Bellew too
    All tossers but to their credit I tune in to see if they lose
    And that's a part of their job done
    Viewer drawn in

    Froch is a complete tube. By the way, did you know he fought at Wembley? Doesn’t like to mention it though so you probably haven’t.

    Quigg bores me.

    Bellew is in desperate need of some Imodium for his verbal diarrhoea. I will never, ever, ever forget what he said after Chisora v Whyte 1 -

    ‘That was a war of malnutrition’

    Er, ‘attrition’ is the word you want. MALNUTRITION!!!!

    Adam ‘LIFT OFF FOR AJ’ Smith

    I personally can’t stand Ronald McIntosh’s commentary on ITV events.

    Kid Galahad because he's a rat.

    Anthony Yarde because he says he's waaaaaay better than he is. And deep down knows it , hence his resume of Hunagrian plumbers..

    Dave Penfold Coldwell for blaming David Price when he lost to Hammer despite having the bright idea of piling on the pounds on a fighter who already had terrible stamina.
