    Never saw that other boy doing anything, weird technique. Think he'd beat everyone he'd faced before him but was a different level.

    Terrible card last night. Smith, who is far from elite, would batter Brook. Brook is done.

    Just seen Froch saying he fancies BJS to beat Canelo, because Canelo is at the end of his career.. :43:

    Most boxers are idiots tbf, and Froch is no exception. The flat earth theory is one of the most bizarre of all conspiracy theories. I can only assume Carl’s legendary chin and ability to absorb damage has left him a bit dim.

    About as robust a defence of that comment as I’d expect.

    You have a bit of a chip on your shoulder when it comes to me lad, I don’t take it personally :giggle1:

    As a rule of thumb though, I tend to not bother making “robust rebuttals” to two word reply’s to any of my posts. Try making a robust comment if you would like one :giggle1:

    Still no defence, unsurprisingly.

    I have absolutely no idea who you are pal, chip on the shoulder comment is completely pie in the sky.

    Of course you don’t Paul :giggle1:

    Bad case of ‘only child syndrome’. Nobody owes you a “robust defence” in response to a two world reply.

    I have 2 brothers and lived in a Foster home with many others, are you confusing me with someone else???

    Why are you making something personal when it was a clear point made on a stupid throwaway daft comment you made?

    When you make a two word reply to someone and demand an in-depth response in return, it demonstrates a tremendous lack of self-awareness.

    Your initial reply may as well have amounted to you saying “I disagree with this statement”. Believe it or not, I can’t actually provide a ‘robust rebuttal’ to you simply disagreeing with me Paul, not when you dont provide any substance to your stance, and nor do I have to.

    BJS certainly could cause Canelo problems on the back foot and countering but to say it's for the reason that Canelo is declining...is laughable..

    Don't want to see and don't think Smith deserves the Canelo fight either after his Ryder loss. Canelo beats him more convincingly..

    Canelo beats both but BJS is a more intriguing match up in my opinion..

    As for Froch. I absolutely loved him as a fighter but what a * of a man..

    Simply disagreeing :56:

    You stated that most boxers are idiots. Explain yourself.

    That’s not how it works Paul.

    If someone makes a statement, which by your own admission was intended to be rather flippant, and you disagree with that statement, it’s up to you to say why you disagree, particularly if you’re expecting to engage in some sort of ‘robust’ discussion on the point.

    Providing a two word reply to someone and expecting a ‘robust response’ on the back of that is hugely ironic. The fact you don’t see that is in itself, utterly bizarre.

    Paul’s that wee guy in the pub that every * avoids eye contact with incase he wanders over and tries to join in the conversation. Roaster.
