Alright folks, 

As you might know I'm Tapology Boxing editor. I know the majority of you guys are here for MMA, so was I originally. But for the last year or 2 there is a little more interest in Boxing on the site. 

So here's a place to talk boxing.

Classic fights: Castillo vs Corrales.

IMO probably the best 'Mexican' style fight ever recorded. Try and find a better one. Beat each other from pillar to post before Corrales, in one of the greatest comebacks I've ever seen scored a TKO in the 10th. An absolutely unbelievable fight.

Random boxing related purchase of the day...

I popped into a charity shop and bought this programme for an amateur boxing card from 1987 for 50p complete with annotations from the original owner about the results and cancelled opponants. It's been an interesting little read so far.

@Joshjeffords

I've tried tracking down some of the boxers on the card to see if they turned pro and what happened to them. I've only found 2 so far: Johnny Pinnock and Tony Grizzle (who coincidentally fought each other on this card in the "J. Pinnock VS A. Grizzle" fight which Pinnock won according to the annotations). Judging by their pro records, I am curious as to the standard of boxing on display that night! Anyway, I was planning on trying to find out as much info as possible about this card as a project to work on in my spare time (which will be time consuming seeing how obscure this card is!) but that's gonna be an interesting little project.

@Joshjeffords

That would be amazing to watch! I think the fact that it's from 1987 and so the footage would be grainy as **** by modern standards would actually make it a more enjoyable watch as it would feel "rawer" I guess? There's probably loads of modern boxing cards about the same size as this that someone records and winds up on YouTube but nobody ever sees that sort of footage because of how obscure it is. The only time you really see amateur footage of an amateur or low level pro fight is when something crazy happens in it.

Having said that, I've watched Jamie Quinn get out pointed over 4 rounds more times than I can remember with varying degrees of footage quality.

It'll be interesting to see what the future holds for Declan Dee though.

Hand reveal!! I would've never guessed your white/s. Also wow I didn't think I would ever see a Jamie Quinn win anytime soon considering how green my tapology picks page is on his fights.

I reckon Jamie Quinn vs Declan Dee is going to be the reverse Ali vs Larry Holmes.

one of the most hilarious boxing skits. Everything about it is comedy gold but my favorite is if you pause and look at the recipe Norm put down $25k to win $3k lmfao.

Haha, I noticed the legend Jamie Quinn won last week! I'm going to be adding it later, was 1 of those wierd cards that there's no info that it's happening until after the fact?

Anyway, I love seeing a journeyman like Quinn pull off an upset win out of nowhere!  Guys like him fight 2,3 even 4x a month!!! Especially now that the UK small Hall shows are back up and running. There are boxing journeymen all over the world but the UK has some of the best(worst). I upload/edit 1000s of fights a month and about 10% of them are the same 10 or 20 British journeymen!!!!

Yes, not only am I white, I also have hands as well! If I set up an OnlyFans and just posted pictures of my hands, would anyone pay for that? Just seeing if there's a niche market to exploit lol!

Yeah some of those British (mostly English) journeyman are unreal... Records like 5 - 117 or 8 - 140 or 1 - 30, I don't know how they get up there and do it time after time... Balls of steel


Wes O' Neil is probably my favourite, he is MMA but may have fought a boxing bout or 2

Damn just read this on Wes's page, thats noway to talk about the G.O.A.T

"This fighter has been found by Tapology to have engaged in activity which does not conform to combat sports standards:

  • Has purposely participated in bouts with no reasonable path to victory, displayed a lack of competitive effort, and is unjustifiably matched against far more skilled opponents.

One or more bouts on this fighter's record have been marked as exhibition-status and do not count towards either participant's Win/Loss record, and are excluded from tabulation when calculating Tapology's Fighter Rankings. Future opponents of this fighter are advised that a bout against this fighter may be classified with the same exhibition-status."
