  1. Boxing thread

    Just a general boxing thread, as I know a few people on here are interested. Old stuff, new stuff, current fights and fighters, classic fights and fighters. Anything at all boxing related....bring it to the table
  2. Boxing thread

    Agree. His age and Stepping up 2 weight divisions was too much against such a good opponent. Still, some sublime defensive skills while it lasted. Loma is very good though.
  3. Boxing thread

    He is firm favourite with the bookies too I believe.
  4. Boxing thread

    Well Rigo V Loma is this weekend. Can't wait for this one. There is a good write-up in The Independent about what makes it so special. http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/general/boxing/vasyl-lomachenko-vs-guillermo-rigondeaux-preview-pure-boxing-match-steve-bunce-a8090346.html
  5. "Relay Crime" reality?

    The thing about the Autowatch Ghost and similar is that I can see it encouraging conflict as they could threaten you for the code. That said, I do have a handbrake lock on my car even though it's not keyless.
  6. Boxing thread

    I can't wait for Rigondeaux v Lomachenko on Dec 9th? I know I keep banging on about Rigo on here but he is a simply stunning boxer imo. My favourite boxer in recent history by some margin. His footwork is other worldly... And Loma ain't half bad as well! It may be one for the purists more than the action seeker though.
  7. Security warning

    Every time I log on here l, my McAfee Antivirus (Android) throws up security warnings which keep popping up. Is that normal........or are TSN now just harvesting all our personal Informations to sell to the Russians ?
  8. 2017 Fitness Thread

    Inspired by Torino at the back end of 2016, I will be posting up on here soon......once I have had a think about what I want to achieve. Please join in with any fitness goals (whatsoever!) however great or small they may be for 2017.
  9. M2 or Macan

    I've already chosen the M2. But would like a Macan for Mrs next car.
  10. Riz - Have Tissues Handy...

    Wopps will buy you one for old times sake. The good old R32 days.... when the Internet was pure and virginal.
  11. Boxing thread

    It did surprise me how CAN struggled against the relentless coming forward of GOL. I thought GOL would tire in the latter rounds because of his age and CAN would land a few bombs. If anything it was the opposite. Good defence from both of them. And they can both take a shot. Any one of those punches....especially the body shots - would leave the average bloke off the street in a heap on the floor.
  12. Boxing thread

    Fantastic fight. After the MAY v MCG circus the other week (did people honestly pay to watch that?) it was everything a top notch fight should be. ... Except the result. GGG should have got the decision in my book. I think he is actually a robot - just never stops coming forward! NNMM might even admit that GGG is a decent boxer now
  13. Boxing thread

    Still no idea who I fancy for GGG v Can. I hardly ever stay up for a fight. But I will try for this one. Or get up early!
  14. The £1k mobile phone

    I read that the $/£ issue isn't as punitive as first appears, as the US price doesn't include State sales taxes - whereas the UK price includes VAT.
  15. The £1k mobile phone

    If i was on the Apple Eco system, i would actually probably end up getting the iPhone X (even at £1k) as I do think it's a big jump on the other iPhone models and makes them look outdated and obsolete.
  16. The £1k mobile phone

    I do find it a bit bizarre that a lot of the press are getting so excited about the latest iPhone X. Is it not just generally catching up to the opposition? This article seems to sum it up for me..... http://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/news/article.cfm?c_id=3&objectid=11921942 I recently went from a Galaxy S6 Edge to an S8. Only because my Mrs wanted a non work phone for private use....so I gave her the S6 and the business got me the S8. The change makes no significance difference in my everyday life whatsoever. I would never upgrade if i had to pay.
  17. Music streaming

    On a side note, I do love BBC 6 music now...... Especially Sean Keaveney (breakfast show) and Radcliffe & Maconie (1-4pm). Both very funny. Diverse music and no ads.
  18. Music streaming

    I don't use any of the main paid for services anymore. I just use tune-in Radio for free (mainly over Sonos or PC when working). Search for music type and save the best stations as favourites. I have got some great specialist stations saved (Northern Soul/Modern Soul/Soulful House/Lovers Rock/Samba etc). Many are ad free with some good djs who do it for the love of the music. My staple listening now is Radio 6 Music - combined with 365Soul, Soulbeat Radio and Generation Soul Disco Funk Radio all on Tune in.
  19. Catch him Derry

    I know this has gone viral - and it sure made me laugh. I think it's the accent that adds the comedy element..
  20. Catch him Derry

    You're tiring him out. He's got no legs left, like McGregor
  21. Golf R in house.

    Why lads in their 20s shouldnt be driving cars as powerful as a Golf R. https://www.yorkmix.com/news/video-pix-car-crashes-house-york-updated/
  22. Golf R in house.

    What is Talon CB? If it's a mod......i really, really hope for his sake that he has informed his insurer. Which he won't have.
  23. Boxing thread

    Well at least Mayweather v McGregor gave the (over)paying public something for their money. I haven't watched it - but press reports seem to suggest it was a likely outcome. Mayweather takes him past 25 minutes (MMA bout length) then dishes out a boxing lesson to the younger, fitter, stronger, more powerful man. Punch landed ratio was 53% to 26%. Says it all really. Love him ir hate him - Mayweather is one of the world's greatest defensive boxers and strategists. I will be looking forward to watching the Cotto v Kamegai fight later. I won't bother watching the Mayweather walkover when it's eventually shown outside PPV.
  24. Boxing thread

    One of our office girls said her boyfriend has subscribed for the fight PPV - first time he's done so - and a lot of their friends are going to their house to have something to eat and watch it. I asked if they knew what time it was going to be on? They didn't.
