    I couldn't find a place to put this on the Sportsbook forum, but how about a few more boxing events? My preference is the young Mexican boxers who have the heart for the sport and are hungry!

    I think the younger fighters fight more real fights, with less thrown fights. Plus, you can tell they're really going for it. Heavyweight boxing seems kind of lazy at times.

    I did have an interest in boxing but I have to say it was eclipsed by UFC and MMA.
    I do remember going back a number of years and watching a series of really short
    duration Mike Tyson fights. I also remember when I was a kid listening on
    the radio to the first Liston / Clay ( he was Clay then) fight.

    As long as I can find odds for the fight I will try to post any that anyone requests. That goes for any sport of event. I normally use Sky bet for odds because I don't have to convert the odds and you don't have to be signed up to see them.

    I'm having trouble finding odds on this fight. Have you found any?

    I really have not looked. I will come back with an answer hopefully!

    UPDATE: Can't find it anywhere. Lots of stuff regarding the fight but no odds.

    I was spoilt when I was a boy as it was before PPV appeared and I had the era of the 'Four Kings', Hagler, Hearns, Leonard and Duran. My personal favourite was Tommy 'The Hitman' Hearns.

    Boxing is a so much better than wrestling. I mean I would much rather watch a boxing match than a wrestling one. Boxing is fun, I actually used to do a little boxing when I was younger, and I was pretty good at it.

    I'm also a fan of MMA, but boxing was the first combat sport I was really into and still am.

    Oh I have a lot of favorites. Ali, Roy Jones Jr., Sugar Shane Mosley, Floyd Mayweather, Gatti, Mike Tyson, Kirk Johnson... I know I'm forgetting a bunch. Lennox Lewis is another.

    Hey Flexin - you didn't mention Big George Chuvalo. He was a bit of a Canadian legend. Yeah I know that you know this already.
    I also liked Tyson. A bit of a tragic hero / villain story there I also watched the movie Raging Bull but I have to add that Tough Guy Jake LaMotta was a bit before my time. Not the movie though. I was a bit of a boxing fan but now I tend more to MMA UFC.

    The Duran, Hearns, Hagler, Leonard era brought me to love boxing. Roy Jones and Mike Tyson bought it to another level. Boxing is one of my favorite sports. I love it when Mexicans fight, they slug it out with pure heart, guts and blood. My favorite fighters today are Erik Morales and Manny Pacquiao.
