Ross 'The Boss' Burkinshaw has been front page news in the papers recently, and not in a positive light:


Due to this horrific story, it looks like CHB needs a new hero. I think I'll also be asking for a refund on that video I got him to do for the forum.

Watched the first two Gatti-Ward fights last night and fuck me the balls and will to win in those two was off the fuckin charts. I saw the trilogy a few times before but for some reason the first fight seemed even better this time around.

Also worth noting and it's something I never hear anyone say about Gatti is when he chose to box he was fluid as fuck. Put combinations together beautifully.

Matchroom signed a deal with TJ Doheny and he will defend his title next week in Madison square garden, surprisingly enough. Great move for Doheny, especially considering how little backing he's had his entire career.

Gatti’s only problem was his defence or complete lack of it.His good opponents landed about 51% of punches on him.
Other than that he was class-good offense,great body puncher,high workrate,good stamina,granite chin,good speed.
I believe he couldnt take it to the body though,likely as his out of the ring shenaniggans had some to do with.

A bit of a random question... I want to go to a Boxing match in America this year... I'm just wondering for example.... How much would it cost to go see Tyson Fury if he fought Wilder in Vegas?

For a 3/4 night trip I think you'd have to be prepared to pay around £1500 for everything if you can get a decent package. And then Vegas isn't the type of place you want to go to on the cheap, so you'd need plenty of spends too.
