Give It Up Audley...................

Not being the worlds biggest boxing fan, I missed most of tonights Commonwealth title bout between Audley Harrison and DannyWilliams. To be honest, I wished I hadn't bothered. I flicked over in round eight to see two chaps lumbering about the ring, Williams making some effort to instigate a bit of a scrap, Harrison merely using his height advantage and superior reach to palm off the attentions of his opponent. It would seem that this was how the fight had been going for most of it's duration. Harrisons somnambulant approach failed to pay off and Williams had him on the deck in round ten and then looked to have taken the final round. Two of the three judges agreed that Harrison was shite and gave the decision to Williams. The point? Why the Fuck do boxing crowds get all wet in the nether regions over heavyweights? They're shite. They're unfit, sloppy, and most of all they're boring. I missed the Amir Khan bout, but by all accounts he produced some fireworks. Typical of the little guys. Khan's fight was only four rounds and was merely warm up to the real thing. The real thing turned out to be two fat old ladies swinging their handbags at each other. I have a novel idea. Make Heavyweight bouts six rounders. Theres nothing sadder than watching these bloaters dead on their feet by round ten after having done nothing more than throw a few tentative jabs at each other for half an hour. If these two are the best the UK can come up with in the heavyweight division, then surely it falls to young Mr Khan to show what entertaining boxing is all about. Heres hoping.......................

Heavyweight boxing can be a bit like watching two big wardrobes falling over. Personally speaking it's more the appearance of the boxers and the thought that if something did kick off there might be a death that gets me excited. The wee guys are usually the better boxers but the heavyweights are better to look at. Mind you I wouldn't advance that theory to any male boxing fans, all of whom are 100% hetrosexual and are in no way attracted to other men ever not even for a second. You got that ya cunt.
