It is important to distinguish amateur-boxing which is a sport, from the professional spin-off, which allows Don King to practice.

Arguably, you could even leave "amateur" out of that sentence.

"Amateur" was a term I deliberately used, as BB says it is important to differentiate the two codes. Having said that you're right, arguably, I could've left it out.

Indeed. Wonder if Paulie Vario and Jimmy Burke will be at the gates of Hell waiting for him.

Rightly or wrongly he has left some legacy behind him thanks to Scorsese and the masterpiece that is Goodfellas.

If they are they wont be impressed by him calling them 'homicidal maniacs' in his memoirs.

Classic!

Looking from the window above,
Some b**tard gave me a shove
And I was falling.
Splattered all over the ground,
Big crowd gathered around,
Nosey b**tards.
All I needed was a parachute,
All I got was a DM Boot,
And all I ever knew,
It was you ...

Monaghan United have pulled out of League of Ireland.

No surprise as they had little support and where essentially a dublin team who played their home games in Monaghan. A shame for all involved who worked hard to keep it going for so long.

They going to keep going at a youth level it seems.
