    Rugby Autumn Tests

    Where did you get the tickets mate if you don't mind me asking? I want to go to this on Sat but was only confirmed as being off work a day or two ago. Will still go through with the intention of getting one in a pub or something but if there are any kicking about that I could get now that would make the day that bit more relaxing on Sat.

    Thanks for reading the article Micky. Were you at the fights? I didn't mention the punch on the back of the head because I hadn't noticed it from my vantage point. I was seeing the Donaire fight differently but the different viewpoint is welcome. Cheers.

    his next opponent is this guy mate: http://boxrec.com/en/boxer/700603 aggressive, come forward guy but Taylor should have the beating of him. I also believe he'll win the tournament.

    Ha ha. That site just publishes anything that gets sent to them. That guy Gilfoid is a troll who only writes negative articles about UK fighters just to get a reaction. Not worth paying attention to. I wrote this about Saturday's experience at the fights http://nyfights.com/boxing-latest-news/wbss-fan-experience-in-glasgow-as-taylor-and-donaire-advance-to-semi-finals/

    I don't think Hearn knows what to do with Burns and Cardle at this point so it makes sense he's matched them against each other. Wrote a bit about Saturday night so I will link it here when my editor publishes it. Probably tomorrow i'd guess.

    Yeah after the second round I was saying to my mates that Martin looked like a rabbit in the headlights. What a performance by Taylor though, relentless pressure and great variety to head and body. Superb. On to the next one, Baranchyk in the semi final. Hopefully they bring it back to The Hydro but being honest there were lots of empty seats which was the only disappointing aspect of the night.

    Taylor back in action at The Hydro tonight in what is a huge event. World Boxing Super Series in Glasgow! Great night of boxing in store, I think there are a few hundred tickets remaining if anyone is at a loose end. All the details on the two tournament fights in my article below... http://nyfights.com/newsworthy/wbss-in-glasgow-taylor-vs-martin-burnett-vs-donaire/

    Sorry for delay. Just seen this. Streaming on the WBSS YouTube channel. I have watched all of the World Boxing Super Series action this year via that method and it works perfectly.

    Bakole had fought on the last few Josh Taylor undercards so I was aware of him. This was a step up and a gamble though considering Hunter would bring an awkward style for a fairly slow HW. Bakole's trainer Billy Nelson had been talking him up big style so Cyclone rolled the dice and it didn't pay off. The Cyclone deal with C5 is good for boxing as it gets the sport on terrestrial. The Lee McGregor fight which was on that card earlier in the evening was a good watch. McGregor, 21 from Edinburgh, is now the Commonwealth bantamweight champion. Only had 5 fights but looks one to keep an eye on.

    Celtic vs Sevco.

    Rangers fans go to Glasgow Warriors games?

    Appreciate you reading the piece Dairbee. It's a compelling fight and the case can be made for either man getting the job done in his own way. It all adds up to a must watch event. Cheers.

    Thanks for reading and that is a perfectly reasonable stance you have regarding the upcoming fight.Timing is everything in boxing so this one has come along at what Wilder and his team will be regarding as the perfect time to face Fury. As you know from reading the piece I think Fury will prevail in this contest but I fully acknowledge that he could be KO'd at any moment from one of Wilders unorthodox bombs. Fight might not look pretty but it is a must watch matchup. Cheers.

    wrote this piece about the man himself the other day. Hoping to grab an interview with him before he hits camp for the Wilder fight but those MTK managed fighters are a bit funny about talking to any writers these days. http://nyfights.com/boxing-latest-news/tyson-fury-comeback-is-going-to-plan/

    yeah really good stoppage from the Aussie fighter's corner. He was about to take some unnecessary serious punishment so their timing was good. As for the Thrilla in Manilla trainers yeah good point on their contrasting stances. Perhaps Dundee thought Ali could make it through another 3 minutes whereas it was getting dangerous for Frazier in terms of completely losing his eyesight if he had been permitted to fight the final round. Futch did the right thing. Anyway I wrote up the Belfast card if you care to read mate. Cheers http://nyfights.com/newsworthy/windsor-park-delight-for-carl-frampton/
