Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux this weekend, could potentially be one of the greatest fights ever.

Does anyone know if this is on the normal Boxnation subscription that you get with BT sports?

I think Lomachenko wins this with ease. Too big and just too good. Although I'm a fan of Rigo, I think he may just be on the slide. Well worth watching though.

You'll pick it up if you subscribe to Box Nation, think you can stream it - I am nearly sure I read somewhere if you have BT Sports you'll get it through their app or something too.

Sigerson usually throws out some great games - suppose with it being majority younger lads the energy and enthusiasm sometimes overtakes tactical discipline, just a pity about the time of year it takes place, not that anything can be done about it.

Was lucky enough to play a bit for Jordanstown when I was down that direction and will always have great memories of the sigerson, unfortunately I did not make the team however  >:( ;D

Fuzzman, with all due respect there no point talking about battles with Dublin. We were supposed to have one on 27th august but only one side turned up.

Sorry STG. Dont know what came over me with the positivity. Probably been living here too long now and forgot the doom and gloom.

I've called it all off now and told the local hotels, pubs and restaurants to calm down and go back into their recession mode.

As for the Strabane comment, it just gives us another insight into the person who posted it.

That was me, I also clearly said it was a joke. You know what this is, right? I actually have relatives from Strabane and my family own a business in the area so it's most certainly a bit of banter. But take it how you wish.

Furthermore, 'another' insight? I've made about 100 posts on this forum, none of which have ever been considered controversial nor intended to be. A simple check of my posts would sort that issue.

Certainly worth watching or even getting the next morning compared to some bigger publicity fights this year though.

Rigondeaux at 3/1 for this one, bookies seem fairly confident.

For any of ye interested I've a squad of Dubs coming up on Sat 3rd Feb and staying the night in Strabane for a nights craic

I'm predicting a good red hand spanking on and OFF the field that night

We owe them for how they treated us as AI champs in 2006 in the BOO part I

I would say they'll play their 3rd time mind you and still give us a good game but my mates reckon those new lads will be busting their gut to break into the squad for the summer.

Strabane is the right spot to go alright. Some of your mates from Dublin might feel at home around Ballycolman.


Had to edit this.....this was a tongue in cheek joke before anyone gets upset. It's actually a great pitch to play on, great atmosphere.

Thoughts on Clattenberg comments re: Chelsea / Spurs?

It cost Chelsea £1.5 million. They should sue the FA.

Have to agree - Chelsea have often been on the wrong end of the FA's wrath, often deservedly. But they probably have a right to be outraged here, lest we forget the words of Mourinho in his 2nd stint at Chelsea, "Referees are afraid to give Chelsea decisions". Do you think Clattenberg would have released these comments if someone had of been seriously injured that night? I remember one tackle from Dier on Fabregas was especially nasty.

All this does is fuel paranoia for me, Clattenberg has sank his fellow officials in England.

Derry is a complex county. Club scene there is war. Inability to put that aside at county level. String of managers that players probably didn't want/rate, internal fall outs between clubs/players/managers.

I genuinely don't know what man though could come in and steady that ship - serious talent in Derry, if they could unearth their Jim McGuinness there could be an All Ireland there but as you say, the opt outs kill any optimism.

Been to a few Derry Championship games in my time, always great occasions - but maybe the Derry posters could tell you more about their county than me.

GSP out indefinitely with colitis, can't say I know too much about the condition but big blow for him and his return.

Can only see him coming back at catch weight really though going forward.

O'Neill, Bradley, McCurry, Brennan--the problem I see with these players is their lack of confidence, due to the defensive system ( a system that most teams use TBH )

Wouldn't argue against that, they have to do a lot of running before they even get close to shooting range most of the time. High output like that just before shooting, increases likelihood of dropped short or wide ball.

I see all Ireland finalists mayo have called up 15 new players to their squad. Very progressive thinking manager they have.

That...and their team is away on holidays just after xmas so they'll need someone to fulfill fixtures.

As Cheiftain has just posted, I agree with fully. We have a lot of players in Tyrone on the same level - I'm thinking O'Neill, Bradley, McCurry, Lee Brennan (slightly unfair as he hasn't actually got his chance perhaps). On any given day these lads could score 1-3 and get Tyrone a win....the problem is none are consistent enough and there is also, on any given day, they could go missing.

Defensively, they have called up three players much promoted on this board and anyone who has seen them play or played against will have high hopes.

Presumably if McGregor is in Ireland, USADA can't get at him to test him?

Jon Jones II....or III, i suppose coming up here.

That ainít how it works. What sort of six degrees of Kevin Bacon did you use to get to performance-enhancing drugs out of all this?

Cocaine is a stimulant, banned by USADA.

While I don't believe it's actually tested for 'out of competition'. The line is thin, very thin.
