CARL FRAMPTON topped the bill on a cracking card in Belfast last week with a win over tough Mexican Horacio Garcia.
And it was our biggest show yet on BT Sport with the highest viewing figures to date for us on the channel.
But we are only just starting and all eyes will be on the featherweight division next year.
Lee Selby defends his IBF title on December 9 at the Copper Box in London and you could see the Welshman a lot more with us with some exciting news possibly coming in the next few days.
The Barry boxer is set to face Leeds favourite Josh Warrington next year and the winner will no doubt want to face Frampton soon after.
If any of Britain’s other top featherweights – including Scott Quigg and Kid Galahad – want to get involved with the best in the division then they know who to call.
We could set up our own tournament to see who really is the best from these shores in the red-hot division.
Anthony Joshua’s Instagram account has been a point of controversy this week.
The WBA, IBO and IBF heavyweight champion’s team say he was hacked after his official account sent abusive messages to former fighter Eddie Chambers.
One of the messages included the phrase “disgrace to the superior black race”.
What has surprised me is how quickly – even though he says he was hacked – it has been brushed under the carpet. If Tyson Fury or Billy Joe Saunders were caught up in something like this, can you imagine the public outcry for an investigation?
It will be interesting to see if the British Boxing Board of Control investigate it further.
The other news this week was David Haye’s latest withdrawal because of yet another injury after his rematch with Tony Bellew was shelved.
Haye, a former two-weight World Champion, has been a fantastic servant to the sport of boxing and nobody could blame him if he decided to hang up his gloves.
