I remember Greg Page well. He was a good boxer not great, but good. I don't understand the referees in boxing. I have seen some fights stopped when they shouldn't be and others go on when the boxer is clearly hurt. Gambling dictates fights, not the health of the boxer.

When a fighter is hurt it should be called of immediately. No pissing around, I’d prefer it to be called of a bit early than a bit late.

The bloke Carl Froch was fighting, Jermain Taylor, was finished about a minuet before the ref called it off. If you’re finished froch is the guy you want to fight against. He has one hell of a right.

Did anyone see that fight? I saw it last night (highlights because it was shown in the morning) that was a good fight. WTF was Taylor doing though, he should have won easily. :o
