Losses That Hurt the Most

Bruno - Tyson 1 when I was 6 was the first :lol:

Nigel Benn's 3 losses at the end, and Steve Robinson vs Naz, when I was 14.

If Calzaghe had ever lost, I'd probably have jacked the sport!

I said I'd never get that invested again, but think I have done with Fury.

I had so many wars back on ESB with the klitards I had an absolutely irrational hatred off either brother so Haye stinking the place out against wlad was awful for me to watch.
I got sucked into thinking/hoping Haye might be the guy who could rid us of the Klitschko dominance. But we had to wait for Fury to do the deed.

Solis against Klitschko was pretty disappointing, the fat fuck.

Pac against Marquez, bet on him losing the decision so gutted when got took out.

Froch v Groves 1

For a good while after that fight I would have been quite happy to see Howard Foster thrown into a hole in a wall and would have bricked it up myself.

Haye vs Klitschko

You have to understand how loathsome the early years of Klitschkos reign were. After being flattened X3 he was then dropped 3 times by Sam Peter before scraping a win, it was that bad even Vitali told him to retire.

His next few years he seemed to defend against nothing but overweight short guys or total no hope rs, and he wouldn't even step over his front foot against them. Imagine if AJ fought his next 8 fights like he did vs Ruiz, it was that bad.

Haye was undersized but punched really hard, was in shape and had great speed, it seemed like he had a superb shot, but in my opinion after he won the WBA he lost a lot of hunger and edge, his performances vs Ruiz and Harrison weren't that impressive and Wlad clearly was a far better fighter than the one who got bounced by Sam Peter, so the result was predictable but I still wanted to belive.

The division is worse now though, it's more open but prime Klitschkos demolish this entire division, Wilder would be ended very early, Joshua mid rounds and Fury mid-late although Vitali would probably destroy fury pretty early.

Haye vs Klitschko was a massive anti-climax, after the years of Haye following him around saying he's going to smash him and bring excitement back to the heavyweight decision he then barely lands a glove on him in a borefest and then blames a broken toe.

I wasn't upset or even angry though, just very disappointed.

Steve Collins beating Nigel Benn and Chris Eubank. I didn't like Collins and was a big Benn fan as a kid.

Barrera - morales 1. (I was a big barrera fan at the time).

Froch - Groves 1. Really wanted Groves to win, didn't think he would, but thought he had a chance. To see him fade, and then the dodgy stoppage. Felt really bad for him.


I don't usually get that emotionally involved. The only time I have strong feelings nowadays is if it's a robbery or its the end of the road for an old fighter.

Felt bad for Ryder v Smith recently, and it was sad seeing Burns against Selby.

Even felt a bit sorry for bloody James Degale against Eubank!

Froch v Groves 1

Wasn't a loss but Wilder-Fury, that draw was bullshit

Ryder-Smith - robbery that will get brushed over with time by Matchroom but that was a robbery

Eubank - Blackwell - watched this live and I was mad with Blackwell's corner for not pulling him out sooner when the fight was well out of his reach

I was listening to the Bruno v Witherspoon fight on the radio whilst in bed with my girlfriend.

I think the only other time I have cried whilst getting head was when she stuck a finger up my arse.
