...can't get through to order the boxing (there's a problem with my Sky box which means i have to telephone to order ppv events). So I'm watching the UFC on ESPN instead. Pretty good so far.
I've never showed an interest in men beating eachother up before, but there's something to be said for the way that they build all this stuff up. David Haye to win, because he made a rape joke.
There's a whole load of links there.
You could be hiding under the ring with a periscope for all i know....
Their pre-match bickering has been painful to behold. With any luck they'll knock each other out.
The American boxing media, and essentially it's them Haye has to impress, don't give a shit. Especially not when (and this is live on mere Sky Sports 1) Pacquiao is trying to win a title at an eighth different weight division against a fighter banned for a year for, and this sounds like something from a bad 1950s Ealing comedy but it's true, loading his wrapped fists with plaster of Paris.
and walked out to the sounds of phil collins
he's also giving up 9 years on Haye, and is 3 stone heavier
Haye though has a mysterious calf bandage. Oo-er.
Hope this lasts more than one round to justify the cost.
The words "small" and "time" spring to mind.
harrison on the ropes two gloves up shitting himself, haye an arms length away with both arms by his sides
it feels wrong but so right.
useless fat fuck. At least I didn't cough up £15 to watch it
in Haye's post-fight he claims all his friends and family lumped money on a third round win
SURELY that's dodgy
Just when you thought this charade couldn't seem any more pathetic.
downed a half bottle of Buckfast tonic wine on the way to the ring. At least then he might not have been such a massive shitebag.
credit to margarito for lasting
Pacquiao Margerito more than made up for it though, absolute cracker. Cannot believe Margerito lasted the whole fight, unbelievable chin
Detested by British boxing fans but probably not even capable of evoking any emotion of any kind in anyone across the pond. His reception after the fight was pretty incredible, but totally predictable. Still amazing to hear a British crowd berating an Olympic Gold medal winner. He's just been such an embarrassment and more importatntly, a disappointment, to British boxing for the last 5 years (and even prior to that). Margarito is an absolute shite, but I'm sure on the back of his performance last night has managed to put to bed some of his past misdemeanors simply by proving himself to be a seriously gutsy guy who is up for the fight, something which Audley, at no point last night (or past 5 years), has looked like.
Ref should have called it in the 10th round though. Dude could've lost an eye. Fair play to him for carrying on though.
he's smiling! http://image.cdnl3.xosnetwork.com/pics32/640/ZT/ZTSHIGJHOJLBXXT.20101114164547.jpg
Audley is on the payroll of some high rollers, isn't he? He must be. It's almost like he's scared of throwing any punches in case he accidentally knocks his opponent out and the fight goes the wrong way.
