Anyone Else Hoping Blackwell Puts Up a Good Fight?
I'm a big fan of Billy Joe Saunders. I'm really hoping he goes all the way & wins a world title (a proper one) & has a decent career.
But I'm also hoping he gets a tough test from Nick Blackwell this weekend. Blackwell for me is what boxing is all about.
He lives in the middle of nowhere, has not really had decent training, doesn't have a proper promoter (to my knowledge) & is pushing himself for a title shot against an Olympian with a big name promoter behind him.
Hopefully a decent performance on Saturday will get him noticed & some promotional muscle behind him.
On the same bill I'm also looking forward to the Smith O'Meara bout.
