Welcome to the Boxing thread, does what it says on the tin.

I'll try and keep the title up to date with what's being discussed at the time, well until I get bored of it anyway.

Live coverage from ringside at London's ExCeL for one of the top boxing events of the year, featuring a host of Britain's best fight talent. First up on there's a heavyweight re-match between 2000 Olympic champion Audley Harrison and Danny Williams for 12 rounds of action.

The fight had to be arranged at the last minute after Harrison's intended opponent Matt Skelton fractured his hand. The two met a year ago, with Williams winning on a split decision. The boxing career of the loser will be over while the winner could see the possibility of a shot at the World Title. There's also action from Bolton-born boxing prodigy Amir Khan, who will be fighting for his first title, the vacant IBF Intercontinental light-welterweight championship, against Frenchman Rachid Drilzane. Khan celebrated his 20th birthday the night before the fight. Boxing legend Barry McGuigan joins Jim at ringside, whilst commentary comes from John Rawling and Duke McKenzie and reports from Gabriel Clarke.
Presenter:    Barry McGuigan and Jim Rosenthal.

Was this not the fight that was so horrendously boring last time?  I'll still probably watch it though.  As long as it doesn't clash with Jaws 2.
You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
We ourselves are responsible for our own happiness and misery. We create our own Heaven. We create our own Hell. We are the architects of our own fate.
Student says " I am very discouraged. What should I do?" Master says, "encourage others."
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
It takes a wise man to learn from his mistakes, but an even wiser man to learn from others.
This is what should be done. By one who is skilled in goodness, and who knows the path of peace: Let them be able and upright, straightforward and gentle in speech. Humble and not conceited, contented and easily satisfied. Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways. Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful, not proud and demanding in nature. Let them not do the slightest thing that the wise would later reprove.

It was in the paper today that they had a bit of a scuffle at the pre-fight weigh in... Should get them fired up a bit more for this one.

"At last, is Harrison starting to look like the finished article?" 

No, Williams is just as bad as he is.

Still chuckling at the way they're building him up.  Going to be great when he steps up and gets absolutely slaughtered.
