I have bet Crolla to go the distance at 7-2. Probably twentfive quid down the drain, I am given to understand that Crolla is getting around 500,000 pounds for this fight, imagine how much he could earn if he wins tonight and fights a return in the UK. Regards Mervyn The Gee

I've picked Lomachenko by stoppage, but the odds on the fight going the distance are pretty good I feel.

Crolla looked like a novice, not a former World champion. . There is nowhere for him to go, apart from being a punchbag for the up and coming youngsters, so lets hope that that"s the last we see him in a boxing ring. At the moment Lomo is unbeatable ,Garcia might give him a decent fight , but I doubt it. As for the proposed Cambell bout, this as to be a j Joke. Regards Mervyn The Gee,

Yet another great week for Boxing News. Brilliant article by the Editor on the death of Mike Towell last September. It would appear thatTowell should not have been anywhere near a boxing ring. He had been suffering from severe headaches, for a number of weeks but lied to the BBBOC doctors. Interesting to read Khans reasons for"retiring. This magazine is worth every penny for a boxing fan.

Great live boxing on TV this week-end. Tonight started at 7pm on Sky and tomorrow Sky at 2.30 am Sunday. Interesting letter in Boxing News this week, questioning Lomachenko being an ATG, and comparing him with an ATG, Henry Armstrong, 150 fights and World titles at Three different weights. The writer is not suggesting that Lomo is not a superb boxer, but comparing him to Armstrong as to be a joke. I must admit I agree with him. Regards Mervyn The Gee

Allen v Price, what"s the point? Price is just wasting everyone"s time. He should have retired . He is going nowhere, and Allen will surely beat him. But to have his name on your record proves nothing. Regards Mervyn the Gee

Yet another great issue of Boxing News.. In this weeks issue, a story about the Smith twins, Ernie and Billy, both took their own lives.. Ernie had 161 fights in his eleven years as a "Pro", five months after his final fight in 2009 , he hung himself. Four years later, after his 161st fight Billy also commited suicide. Areally sad story about two gutsy fighters. Agreat offer for Ken Buchanan fans,Essex Ex- Boxers have issued a scrapbookof 130A4 pages, some coloured all about Ken, the cost is 12.75 and can be obtainedby contacting Raymond Lee,Tel No 07807739560. They have printed a number of these books on various fighters, well worth adding to your collection. Regards Mervyn The Gee
