Not sure if anyone was watching last night but this was an excellent fight.
Started off cagey from both fighters until AJ landed the big hit and flooring WK early in the match.

The veteran recovered well however and looked strong, knocking AJ to the canvas in the 5th or 6th. Big AJ was struggling for a few rounds after that but fair play to him he recovered well and landed the TKO in the 11th round.

I predicted the 10th for AJ and so close. Klitchko is a great warrior though and we had a debate while watching....a few of us thought the ref ended it a little soon. AJ had knocked him down twice in the 11th and moving in for the kill. He was going to win I felt but you just never know. The big Ukranian is a tough guy after getting back on his feet from that massive upper cut.

Yes Camshy, watched the whole fight last night.

Great combat from both boxers, Klitchko nearly had it won but AJ came back and was to strong at the end.

I think the refs decision was correct.

Saw a photo today with AJ looking down at Klitchko on the canvas, folks are comparing the cliché to a famous photo of Muhamed Ali.

Just looking at your choice again dug and thinking to myself boxing is a sad old sport.

How many of these guys ended up on the ropes as bums, once they're used up no cunt helped them through bad times.

Prison, alcohol, debt seems to be their thing after the glory of the ring.

Jeffries....After boxing he became a trainer and then promoter.

 

Dempsey...done okay after boxing....bit of a philanthropist, managed a casino, owned a hotel and later opened his famous restaurant in New York.

 

Louis....had severe tax & money problems after retirement. Worked as a 'greeter' at Ceasars Palace in Vegas and had a spell as a wrestling ref (after trying the sport? itself).

 

Marciano....done okay for  himself before his death....Television, businessman.

 

Sorry but no time for the last couple..... :lol: .....wee insight though.
