Pacman is a living legend and I just wish he would stop and hang his gloves up and never fight again

he has nothing to prove he has done everything sad to see him in a ring

I watched an interview with him after his last retirement Gerry and the only way I could describe his speech was “ punch drunk” very sad to see. No way should he have been let back in the ring for me

Evander Holyfield took home a whopping $500000 as salary for his fight

so we will agree to disagree as I say it was the $500000 reasons

Holyfield does not need a big pay check. He is however a man with a passion for boxing and that has lead to the sad demise of a once truly great fighter, should never, ever, have been allowed to happen

But he will put him in with decent opposition. The overall aim is for Nathan to get to challenge for the British title. I’ve heard it before that Nathan is 32 and needs to be in these fights and I was previously of the same thought but then when looking at it he isn’t a war damaged 32 and has always ‘literally always’ looked after himself and body and who is finally now growing into that body thus giving extra power into those shots.

You stated previously that Warren had being informed as to how Bent was looking in training ‘which I called out as absolute 30110CK5’ and that it’d be a risk for Nathan to take him on at this stage of his career. Did you not realise that your choice word of ‘apparently’ did you no favours as that choice of word offered no substance?.

The first hand information I have as to what actually happened in sparring when they sparred is a trillion miles away from associating that with what Frank was apparently told regards Bent in training, and for a journey man to take him the distance really doesn’t imply credence to what you had ‘apparently’ heard and then wrote. In addition please spare me your telling me as in post 1847 of yours that I’ve got it totally wrong. Oh, and as for the record too there has being no argument with Warren either. It really does makes one wonder which angle some mags come from at times.

Same as I’ve said before I’m not so loyal to him as to think he’s invincible and if he turns out to fall short then so be it but it won’t be through a lack of trying and those supporting him are giving him an opportunity to become the best he can and to live the dream.

As for the record though I believe Nathan takes Bent out in 8 that is if River Wilson can take those body shots.

Not at all , it was a half decent fight although he won every round first time river aint knocked his opponent out for a while, not knocking Nathan at all just warren .will never know how good nathan is if warren wont put him in with decent opposition .I would have rather seen Nathan challenge for the title to be honest as at 32 he needs to be in these fights.

I note that River Wilson got a points win over the journey man Gabor Gorbics and not Jajjanjn who took world class Martin Murray eight rounds on a bumper bill ‘the same bill Heaney pulled out of.

Can’t think why you’re not shouting from the rooftops over this one as you can’t wait to take great delight in knocking Nathan at any opportunity.

Tyler Denny v River Wilson be a good un though for the English title.

Wont end well for him , he takes far too much punishment in every fight he is in , he was so bashed up after that.
