Deontay Wilder vs Dominic Brazeale this weekend, I'll have to get a Sky day pass for that and do a dodgy stream for Billy Joe Saunders cuz thats on BT Sports and I ain't got that and I don't think there's like a one day way to get that shit.

You can pay BT sports to stream it from there website/app if you looking or a legal/stable way of doing this?

 

I land in Bangkok 3 hours before the flight so going to be a mad rush to find a pub for it.

What, for like, just the one off?  I never knew that, how?  Its not a PPV event, its just something on BT Sports, if it was a PPV event you can just buy it as a standalone thing.

Pernell Whittaker, the most underrated boxer of a generation, robbed against Julio Cesar Chavez and Oscar De La Hoya and Jose Luis Ramirez, only really lost the last two fighters of his career....before there was Floyd there was Sweet Pea Whittaker.  Having started boxing in 1984 he never really lost a fight properly until 1999, before retiring in 2001.  A legitimate 2 weight lineal world champion at light and welter.

How many documentaries on Muhammad Ali does one need?

Ordinarily I would agree with you and believe me I’ve exhausted every stitch of Ali footage out there, the rarest of the rare but this is brilliant, it has shit in it even I haven’t seen, you’ve got to watch this...and I do mean you specifically cuz I know you’re into Ali, everyone should see it but you especially, I promise you’ll enjoy it, if you can give up 4 hours for that nonces documentary you can give up 3 for this, its REALLY good, check it out.  And lemme know what you think.

Has there been a doc about Gerry Cooney?  That guy was like the Joey Buttafuoco of boxing.

I will eventually.

I have an Ali documentary on dvd called I Am Ali. I believe it was done at the behest of his family.

Thats an alright one as well though they get a bit...whats the word?  Heavy handed.  ‘I saw God in his eyes’ I believe Veronica Porsche says.  You wouldn’t think they’d feel the need to inflate a character like Ali, he kinda looms large all by himself.  But seriously check this out.  

Did you ever check out that Elvis documentary The Searcher?

Not that I’ve seen, no.  I tell ya who they did make a movie about, Chuck Wepner.  And i don’t mean Rocky.  Its a good movie too, at least I enjoyed it.  There’s a documentary on George Chuvalo out there, he’s led an interesting if slightly tragic life.

I saw it and really liked it.  I liked the part where he was in prison and Stallone was there filming Lock Up and wanted to meet him and Wepner blew him off.

I like how it was about Chuck and not a boxing movie.

Me too, and I have to say Liev Schreiber is a great actor.  Really underrated in my opinion.

@Len Cnut are you going to that ?^

I'm not, no.  I was actually going to but I just couldn't be arsed.  Not even gonna watch it in fact, being as how I don't have BT Sports and I'm getting Sky Sports for the night off of NOW TV to watch the big American main event tonight, as well as the domestic matchroom card, which by the way is a better card than this one.  I love Billy Joe Saunders but I seem to have missed his last few fights because they've always seemed to have clashed with a better main event or else just been inaccessible due to his being with BT Sports.  He's actually my favourite fighter out of Britain at the moment, him and Tyson Fury.

The WAR hat belongs to one man and one man  only:

Marvelous-Marvin-Hagler-war.jpg

He fuckin' meant that shit too, that WAR shit, he was a bit of a weird fucker when he trained, apparently he would completely isolate himself but for about 5 guys there to assist him in training, he would train all day and at night he'd have a special room set up with no phones no TV, no stereo or radio, no nothing, just a bed and a picture of his opponent somewhere in the room, it was at some beach front somewhere but not a nice warm one, some dirt-meets-water sort of area...and he was sometimes seen at night on the balcony staring into the night sky, thinking about the fight, his opponent, how it was gonna go, what he was gonna go.  He even had like, a really sparse sort of kit that he wore when he trained, did his roadwork in big massive fuckin' heavy boots as he considered trainers to be 'pussy shoes' :lol:

Say what you want about Wilder. Not the best technically but if he hits you you’re not getting back up. Unless you’re a big fat gypo anyways. :lol:
