  1. Football hooligans are a funny enigma. When I was a teenager I remember idolizing them, thought it was brilliant. The beer, banter, belonging, clothes etc. Got into some trouble on away days and stuff too, notably Cardiff. Looking back with older eyes, it's quite tragic really and glad I've grown up. I still cringe when seeing the 'CYF' (City Frontline Youth) in their matching Stone Island T-Shirts and expensive clothes paid for on Mum's credit card, but I have to remember we were like that once upon a time and it's a phase you learn from and grow out of.
  2. As bad as the Jocks can be on occasion. Celebrating the death of their own.
  3. 100% correct. If Groves can 'box clever' and keep Eubanks at bay/distance (akin to what BJS did) then a classy Groves points victory could be on the cards. I just worry if Eubanks will be too much for him should he get on the inside. The kid is a monster, as his training videos back up. Plus it's well known that Groves gasses from Round 7/8 onwards.
  4. Without commeting on future bouts, BJS was superb on the weekend, looked brilliant and completely outboxed Lemiux. What annoyed me were Lemiux's post-fight comments, similar to Guerrero and Canelo when they fought Mayweather: moaning that he "ran away". BJS was playing 'the boxer' i.e. hit without getting hit. Displayed great footwork and lateral movement. Lemiux was hitting thin air. So rather than saying fair play, he moans that BJS didn't stan square in front of him: ridiculous.
  5. Well said. Not City related, but I know a few families from Bemmy who went over to France last year. They were extremely grateful to have the English and Paris SG firms fighting off the Russians.
  6. Controlled or not, my point was that I can understand what Paul Lumber is saying about how the buzz of violence can be strangely enjoyable. I'm not sure if this is something you've experienced personally, and I'm not talking about being mugged or attacked in a shopping centre as you put it. I'm talking like minded individuals, be it football louts, MMA, boxing, Muay Thai fighters, whatever. The reason these sports and pastimes are so popular is because people do enjoy it.
  7. It's a hard sensation to describe unless you're involved. Not a football hooligan but am an amateur boxer. I love bouts and sparring. The adrenaline, the violence, pride and the great feeling afterwards. Completely understand how some hoolies enjoy it. When you say 'punching people in the face' or 'kicking peoples heads in' yeah it seems strange to read it like that, but it's true, very weird but great feeling. Again, not for everyone, courses for horses I say. World would be boring if everyone were the same.
  8. Benn's body shot KO was savage, very Hatton-esque. Undoubtedly will win him some US fans.
  9. Thoroughly disagree with this. Rail links to Cardiff from Bristol are great, trains regularly and on time every hour. Plenty of multi story car parking in Cardiff, always with spaces on concert nights. Naturally 10k people going to some sort of gig or comedy gig all arriving/leaving around the same time naturally going to cause congestion, that is the same anywhere in the UK. But to say Cardiff doesn't have the infrastructure simply isn't true. Compared to Bristol they are light-years ahead of us. 1 minor crash in Hotwells or the Cumberland basin is enough to bring this City to a standstill.
  10. Laugh all you want, but in boxing circles this is a story I've heard a few times at different ABCs. Remember they said the same about Gerald McClellan? He used to run dog fights which included cellotaping shut a Labradors mouth before throwing the poor dog to the hungry pitbulls for cash. Nobody believed it at the time, turned out it was true.
  11. Very true. Heard a lot of very bad things about AJ that, if these were common knowledge, would destroy his carefully calculated PR image. This includes a story about how, during his gang days, he ripped apart a defenseless German shepherd dog with his bare hands. That said, in the ring, an accomplished boxer. His performance against Wlad was phenomenal, but Cardiff on Saturday I was not impressed. Genuinely think Tyson Fury from 2015 would have his number.
  12. Have to agree. Wasn't impressed with Joshua at all. Looked gassed after round 4 (breathing with mouth wide open) and extremely flat footed. Larry Holmes claimed prime AJ beats Tyson; laughable as if Tyson hit AJ with some of the shots Takam did Saturday night it would be lights out.
  13. Haye's reputation has diminished greatly since the loss to Bellew. He's more into being a celebrity than a boxer. Can't blame him for trying to talk himself into fights to get one or two more big days before properly retiring.
  14. In my opinion yes, although some rate Pulev's chances. Can't see anything other than an AJ KO victory personally.
