Fair comment. But I was one of those who thought the stoppage in Froch/Groves one was premature. I changed my mind after seeing the knockout in the second fight. Howard was vindicated in that one. It looked a career ending knockout to me and I was surprised to see George do so well afterwards.I do think it was premature. Although Price had started to takeover, Little was still 'in' the fight. And while we know Price can be devastating, we also know he can struggle to finish a fighter off when he has them hurt -- admittedly this has been against opposition a few levels above Little.
Just listened to Ben Webster playing"Stardust" from the Duke Ellington recording at The Crystal Ballroom, in Fargo, North Dakota in 1940. Anyone out there know where I can purchase this.? Regards Mervyn The Gee
Hi Mervyn thanks for the mention mate. Not been on either forum for a while due to other stuff happening. Hope you and Marie are both OK and also hope to be more active in the future. Managed to watch Plant win his title and looking forward to Eubank/Degale.So little activity on the Forum these past f ew weeks , some of the regulars, chinny, and boxfan, rarely appear and are sorely missed. Is the Forum winding down.?REgards Mervyn The gee
Not sure mate. The peak Degale beats Eubank just like George Groves did. Eubank says he's improved under a new mentor from South America. The cynic in me says he might have fallen out with his Dad,at least in a boxing sense, because Ive not seen Senior for a while at his fights and conferences etc. Hell have to have improved to beat Degale,but Ive a feeling his youth might just pull him through.
Just spotted this Mervyn. I used to get "flogged" at school for a lot less than drugs. Only just joking. Bit rough on the lad but as you say he should have observed the laws of that land. Wonder where his parents were. Will have to look it up.Why all the fuss about the sixteen year old getting flogged in Singapore for a drug offence.? He knew the law before entering the country, I disagree with the law, but When in Rome. Don"t goto the country if you intend breaking the law . and if you are caught accept it. Regards Mervyn the Gee
I was prepared to believe that Artis was actually conned by Carter Mervyn. Maybe he was an accessory. He came across very well in a few documentaries Ive seen. But Carter I think was a four star con man. Sorry to give him his proper title Doctor Rubin Carter.Did "Hurricane" Carter and John Artis "Con" everyone and got away with murder? Personally I think they did. Regards Mervyn The Gee
