Accompaniments to a great night of boxing

To me there are 3 different boxing TV experiences:

1. The Boxing marathon
This is the domestic show followed by the American bill. You need to regulate your alcohol intake and have planned caffeine and sugar rushes. I usually start with a nice meal (curry/chinese with wine/beer then go on to the coffee once the English bill has finised

2. The Big Domestic bill
This is when you can binge on boxing food and booze without worrying about dozing off before the main event - a perfect night for example was the Rogan v Skelton card which was on the same night as the Degale debut. I had strong cider, salt & vineger peanuts after a large kebab. I watch a Sky card live with an ITV4 card mixed in with Sky+. great night

3. The breakfast show (Sky+ American bill)
This is more common now as I can no longer sit up through the night due to age, kids etc. I Sky+ the bill and then get up early on a Sunday morning and enjoy with fruit juice, my pint tea mug, cereal and bacon sarnies.

No.1 is rare these days, but however boxing still has the buzz it always has

I don't drink much in the flat. Getting hammered alone feels a little sad and impairs my ability to insult people on here ;)

Generally, a nice dinner (gammon steak, egg and mash is a favourite) and a glass of Coke while the British card is on. Then I play some Xbox, come online, etc while eating crisps and sweets until the US card starts, by which point I move on to water until the US card is over. But more often I have a nap for a few hours so I'm not a wreck the next day for my other commitments.
You are the most un-Scottish person I have ever known :lol:

I like fried food though?
