Booth knows boxing inside out so I assume he knew that Conlan was hurt and wasn't going to get up and survive.

i think it all depends does conlan have the desire to climb the ladder again maybe a  cash out fight with warrington or maybe he will hang up the gloves and become a promoter with his brother,

He never really had to climb the ladder again though, the perks of having TR behind you. He'll have to earn his next shot legitimately, which basically means that it will be highly unlikely that we'll see him fight for a title again.

Is there much of a career for him in promotion? Does his brother promote anything apart from cards where Conlan fights? Hardly a strong group of top fighters to promote in the country either.

HÝjlund the Atalanta striker is being linked to Man Utd but he is only a year older than Ferguson.

Plus Hojland doesn't score many goals.

That's the exact opposite of the truth. Katie's strength has always been her boxing - timing, combos, movement, footwork. They threw the stats up in the last or second last round that she was landing at 39% on 200 odd punches to Cameron's 24% on 400 odd. That's not a slugger

She's not powerful enough to hurt the best at her own weight, never mind going up to 140.

Yes, those are her strengths but she doesn't fully utilise them in most fights, instead she sits in the pocket and trades. If she stuck to the strategy I'm sure her coach wants her to, she would be able to easily outbox any of her opponents.

Taylor always looks knackered and doesn't have enough variety in her work. For all Katies amateur pedigree, she always looks more of a slugger than a boxer.

It was a dirty act by Brannigan and he deserves to have the book thrown at him but it wasn't exactly cowardly when you consider that he punched a lad much bigger than him straight up to his face. If it wasn't filmed however, nobody would be talking about it but the fact that it circulated on social media has made it much bigger than countless incidents that go under the radar. I heard that Lavertys future is in the balance after the Down county board wanted him to take action but he didn't want to get involved. It begs a few questions:

1) Why was Brannigan allowed to play a few days before a county championship match. It may indicate that Down aren't taking the Tailteann Cup that seriously.
2) How did a lad lose 3 teeth in an era where gumshields are compulsory.

Wise up. Its a completely cowardly act, sucker punch or whatever you want to call it. Your questions completely miss the mark too.

Got two unexpected Ulster's with Derry, serious achievement and Derry will more than likely return back into the pack now he has left.

I donít think youse will nrico.. Great club scene going atm looking in from outside and youíve had great underage teams past few years.. Them senior titles youngsters can see thereís something for them to join

Always had strongest club scene in Ulster and good underage sides, need someone special to harmonise it all together.

Pleasantly surprised at the measured commentary on here on this situation.

What we know is that Nicola was brutally abused for 24years and was forced to turn to alcohol in an attempt to cope and save her kids. Witnesses have come forward to back up the allegations. Rory has not denied any aspect of the allegations and instead chose to smear his ex wife and use her alcohol problem as a deflection.

These are the facts.
Until there is a clear denial on his part then he can have no part in any GAA team and I believe Derry and Ulster GAA should be much stronger on this in public as I believe they are behind the scenes. As it stands Gallagher will never be involved in the GAA again.

We don't know for a fact that she was abused for 24 years and so forth. A Facebook post doesn't turn someone's narrative into undeniable truth.

Witnesses have come forward to state they witnessed actions referred to in her statement. This would suggest that the claims are factual.

Where have you read testimony of impartial witnesses? Please don't tell me Facebook.

Are you shagging RG on the side? Jesus never seen a man as passionate for him as you since the news broke

Very unlikeable individual but this trial by media craic sickens my hole.

What does it matter if the accuser's father emailed the Derry board?  Surely if someone emailed my work with such an accusation they would be told wrong direction, contact the police.

Not really.

Do you think is all the responsibility a community sports organisation has?
Do you think thatís what their members would want?
Do you think that what their sponsors would want?
Do you think thatís what potential funding agencies would want?
Do you think that would be the best way to protect the game that you are there to nurture would be?

The matter will have to be fully investigated. Was the mail sent? Was it received? Who the did the recipient share it with? What they do next? These should not be difficult questions to answer.

The matter should be fully investigated by the police. Who cares about an email to a sporting organisation, why did the accuser, or her da, not go to the police?

Find it mad to even consider that Gallagher will be there on Sunday. Surprised he, or someone else for him, hasnt decided to step aside at least for now.
