there are plenty of boxers out there like this guy. they are there to provide experience to up-and-coming fighters. i mean look at the guys this boxer has been matched up against...nicky cook, bradley pryce, michael gomez, lee meager, esham pickering, andy morris, scott lawton, billy corcoran, jonathan thaxton, carl johanesson....i.e. upper echelon domestic fighters.

guys like this are vital to the development of young boxers. so yes, he should have a licence.

good point...

I was more concerned with a fighter if he keeps losing, how much is it damaging his health, especially fighting that often...but i suppose they are a good learning tool for up and coming fighters.

Peter Buckley has like 4 times the losses of this man. The amount of losses would be a worry to me, thev've gotta be eating so much leather, but most of the fights are only 4/6 rounders. They do play a huge part in the progression of a boxer, more for confidence than anything else. Also, all these journeymen will be wiley pros who know all the tricks of the trade. IMO they should have their licences but they should be even more throughly monitered healthwise.

i just looked at buckleys record....i respect him for what he does, but personally i`d feel a bit daft when the mc read out my record

"with 31 wins and only 238 losses....."

if it keeps him going though, good luck to him..

i just noticed his trainer is called Nobby Nobbs! at least he's got a sense of humor about it all.

thats why they dont say the record if your record is that ****ed up.

cuz saying that record would be telling all the real fight fans in the audience that they're paying to see a tomato can get hurt, or gracefully lose without taking many shots ala strickland..., not a fight.

surely a win would call for some sort of celebration, i think a national day of holiday should be granted.

How many of you have actually seen Peter Buckley fight?

I can assure you, he does not get hurt at all in 99% of his fights.

Most of the guys you see with 200+ losses don't get hurt, they know how to protect themselves. They crumple under very little pressure. :D

I have seen him plenty and he can go between divisions, without the likes of Buckley boxing would'nt exist, as top fighters would have to fight each other, something the likes of joe calzaghe early chris eubank Audly Harrison, Hamed and now amir khan could'nt and would'nt do, they want the money without the hard fights,
Khan would think twice about fighting someone like Buckley as he has something like 8 KOs on his amazing record.
Heath is an issue but he never gets a real dusting. he is a very clever fighter and far from being punch drunk, he is the one that should have the money the likes of Hamed has, not to mention the honor he recived from the Queen, i think the likes of Buckley should get the full recognition he deserves, OBE or a MBE, some stupid toff ( steve redgrave ) rows a boat and he gets a knighthood.
