Good watch. Some great stories about young uns from Liverpool, that have turned their lives around through boxing.

KNOCKOUT SCOUSERS.

Knockout Scousers offers intimate access to three very different young athletes as they strive for a chance to make the GB Olympic boxing squad and qualify for the 2012 Games.

Ricky Burns vs Kevin Mitchell tonight.

Fights taking place at the SECC in Glasgow and show starts on BoxNation from 7pm with ring walks around 10ish.

Should be a good fight.

We'll see if Mitchell can finally live this abomination down (both poster and fight)

For someone with a KO ratio of 25% he battered Mitchell.

Great stuff.

Excellent performance that. Dont think he's that great but it will probably take someone great to beat him, he's improving all the time, is clever and has a lot of heart.

One of my favourite boxers, Corrie Sanders (former heavyweight world champ) was shot and passed away in the wee hours of the morning. Such a shame, he was a genuine nice guy and a great fighter. I remember Freddie Roach saying if every fight was 4 rounds he'd be the best boxer in the world. RIP Corrie.

This article which was published just 2 weeks ago, makes it all the more tragic.

Not seen enough of Bellew to comment but both Haye and Price would annihilate Fury, he's a bum.

Boxing has first openly gay competitor.



Orlando Cruz

A Puerto Rican featherweight has publicly announced he is homosexual, making him the first openly gay active boxer in history.

Orlando Cruz, 18-2-1 in 21 fights, is ranked as the world's number four at 126lbs by the WBO and was part of the Puerto Rico Olympic boxing team at the 2000 Sydney Olympics along with Miguel Cotto and Ivan Calderon.

In a press release, the 31-year-old Cruz said: "I've been fighting for more than 24 years and as I continue my ascendant career, I want to be true to myself.

"I want to try to be the best role model I can be for kids who might look into boxing as a sport and a professional career.

"I have and will always be a proud Puerto Rican. I have always been and always will be a proud gay man."

Cruz has been boxing since he was seven and boasted an amateur record of 178-11, taking in seven national titles in his homeland and seven international gold medals.

He turned pro shortly after the Sydney Games and won his first professional fight on December 15 2000 against Alfredo Valdez.

His highest profile bouts came with the end of his unbeaten record with back-to-back defeats against Cornelius Lock and Daniel Ponce De Leon in 2009 and 2010, the former battle taking place on the undercard of Mayweather-Marquez.

Cruz is due to further discuss his announcement and its potential ramifications in a sit-down televised interview next week.

He has won his last two fights since being stopped by Lock and De Leon and defends his WBO NABO title against Jorge Pazos on October 19 in Kissimmee.

Boxing's overly-masculine nature and the bloodthirsty stereotype stuck to its fanbase are regarded as the main reasons no active boxer before Cruz has 'come out of the closet' and made their homosexuality public, despite the law of averages suggesting that more fighters are gay.

Time will tell if this will be a first which opens the proverbial floodgates to any active boxers who are homosexual but have kept their private life as just that, private.

While not a top-line competitor, Cruz throughout his career has maintained a win percentage and landed knockouts that in future should help put the dated stigma around homosexuality in fighting sports out for the count once and for all.

Haha

Was offered a ticket for it but can't afford it at moment.

Think it's on box nation? So not paying for it...I have two options, drag myself to the pub and watch it there or be lazy and try find a stream and watch it home.

Normally I'd be all over the pub, but I am already getting hassled by mates to get on it now! ...and I know what will happen, even if I say I'm going just for a coupe, to watch boxing and the straight home...it won't happen

Take last night for example...mate picked me up, go to his for a couple games of FIFA and the to local for a couple pints and England game, straight home.

In reality, get to my mates he starts racking out lines, get off our heads, go pub get trollied. Don't leave till 1am, end up back at ours and some girl phones me to see if I was still up as she is also wrecked...she ends up coming round and stays over.

Wake up today hungover to death, feel like I've got flu, had zero sleep and spent about 100 I haven't got

So, going the pub for just a couple and the boxing isn't really an option, and I can't afford to have another heavy night

No...that was Harrison against.....fuck, was it Danny Williams? Did they fight twice and one of them was fucking atrocious possibly the first one which I think Williams won. It was fucking dreadful

If Price has any hopes of being a contender IMO he needs to smash Harrison up and knock him out in style.

It was embarrassingly awful that Williams fight. Harrison had a lot of good will after his Olympics win, and fuck me did he milk it. Cynically.

The Sprott fight was shambolic too.

It's the same old shit he peddles every time he fights..."I didn't do my talent justice in my last fight, this time I'm more focused better prepared and reay to challenge for a title and put on a show tonight"

He'll then turn up, throw three punches, cling on for dear life and hope he doesn't get knocked out,

Can't believe he keeps getting fights
