I certainly got value from my £20.

A great fight for so many reasons. Hoping we won't see a rematch, but ÁJ moving on to Wilder.

And they said boxing was dead.....

Fucking brilliant display by both fighters and refreshing to see such respect for each other before as well as after the fight.

I didn't see the fight but listened on the radio and it did indeed sound pretty decent, but let's not get carried away here. Klitchsko was a good fighter but at 41 is way way past his best which was at one stage wasn't that brilliant. Boxing has become a farce and this has done nothing to rekindle it's already tarnished reputation.

Sorry, you didn't watch it mate, that was the best Klitschko I've seen. Great fight from two great fighters, have a watch, you might change your mind.

As for Boxings reputation; the best heavyweight fight for 15 years, a new marketable young champion, biggest ppv figures for a british fight and the biggest british gate for a fight since the war.

You're right, it can have done nothing for boxing's reputation, absolutely nothing. :i am genuinely amused:
