A fully motivated Barker without injury, for me, would have beaten martinez and sturm without much fuss. His natural talent has got him this far despite his unbelievable injury record which has prevented him from training fully unhibited.
tom-boxing-mad - a dislocated hip is an injury which is a little different from an injured little toe and it was obvious the way he was limping after the knockdown that it was genuine. Having said that Sturm was on top , knocked him...
I can see Degale sitting there all smug and just laughing at Groves with the thought of what goes around comes around!. Funnily enough! so am i! Dry your eyes George, get rid of the dummy, stop talking the trash and Rematch Degale?...

Always going to happen Bellew didn't through anything, to frustrate and make him miss he needed to throw his jab out and tag him but he wasn't. It was like he ran for the whole fight and just tried to keep out of range which...
Bellew unfortunately was exposed, as was his corner for employing a stupid game plan. It was clear from the off Bellew wanted to get to round 7 and then have a go. However, after the 3rd round he should have gone all out. He may have...
Saw Ringside today and Froch looked really marked up and swollen compared to GG. Also Froch said it was an emphatic stoppage - I wonder if he's have seen it as emphatic had he been the one stopped when in Groves position?
It's easy to aim low and accept being the best in one's OWN country - yet it's far harder to rule the world. I for one have no desire to see a Froch-Groves rematch. We know Froch is a fading force - and we know Groves...
The referee jumped the gun in a split second and when he watches the stoppage back he will realise that he was too hasty. When he needed to be calm and in control he panicked and ultimately failed in his capacity as a referee and...
