Wasnít overly impressed with Conlan, a very limited boxer caused him some problems. Think any sort of step up in class heís in bother.

Heís been pro for a while now and heís nearly 30 and fought nobody of any note there has to be a reason for that.
That's what I was thinking this morning and looked up his age. I know he had amateur status to his mid 20s but he must have had enough experience at pro to take a step up.

Exactly. Given his previous amateur experience he should have been further down the track than he is. He has no power and until last night fought nobody of note. Tye whole weight issue was a joke, as was this WBA interim belt at FW when they are both BWs.

MTK

Not be too many boxers youíd like to see win then! Boxing is run by gangsters dating back from day zero

Thatís a total cop out, MTK in a different league

Conlan struggling with the weight, would love to see him beat tomorrow night.
why?

So we don't have to listen to Grace again  :D

Went the distance last night Doheny gave a decent account of himself but never looked like winning fight. Conlon probably on course for a world title shot. Seemed to be a great atmosphere at Falls Park

Thought the crowd were very poor in supporting the fighters...expected more

At the same event before and great atmosphere but the vast majority are too drunk to see the fight and no interest in boxing. Like a big outdoor party which isnít a bad thing

Was following fight TV and seen chat function and came to a point to what type of joints lads were smoking. At the fight. Great lads

Maybe do but the mafia in America has always been involved in American boxing, especially in Vegas. The Mexican drug cartels have involvement in many of their boxers. Itís a corrupt sport right through from Amateurs to the top professionals. It hits harder for us at home with MTK but itís always had a shady side to it. Yes, admittedly MTK seem to be on a different level but I donít blame the boxers. A young fella offered money and a pro contract to help with his dream of becoming a world champion? Iím sure most of us on here would do the same. The big criticism I have for MTK boxing wise is that they have saturated the market with fellas who are useless.

Conlans toughest opponent to date & his best performance to date.

In his fights he is usually very boring to watch with little or no actual aggression - last night he brought aggression and was tactically very good.

Time to go for a World Title now.

The atmosphere was electric but as someone said the amount of 'fans' at it that had no interest in the actual boxing was unreal. At least the rain stayed away.

Very impressed with Donovan from Limerick who looks a real prospect. With Andy Lee in his corner he looks the best Irish prospect for a long time.

The McKenna fight was very entertaining

What about Valdez, as crazy a decision as there has been in boxing in modern times. No regulator has the sports credibility in tatters.
