Not my thing. I think wrestling and boxing are barbaric. Just my opinion.

Me too. Not called blood sports for nothing!
And most boxers seem to end up ... not quite fully furnished in the upper storey.

Re: Boxing


DISASTER!!

The main event is cancelled for one fighter having hepatitis!
And with no world championship fight they're cancelling the whole event!

They're trying to arrange some of the fight to happen today, but this is horrible loss to us.

Re: Boxing


In the end 6 fights were seen, but this was horrible disappointment in many ways.

Besides the main event cancelled, of the remaining fights two ended in first round KO and one was women's (with all due respect women's boxing is still very much a developing sport).

To add insult to injury our big hope Juho Tolppola lost his EU championship fight by disqualification for three warnings in 10th round.

Not a good weekend for (Finnish) boxing.

Re:


Saturday there will be greatest ever boxing event in Finland.

"King" Arthur Abraham vs Carl “The Cobra” Froch for WBC Super-Middleweight Championship is the first world championship fight in Finland for over 40 years.

And besides that there are two EU (EBU-EU) championship matches: our Robert Helenius defends heavyweight title against Attila Levin and other Finn Ville Piispanen defends light welterweight title against Daniel Rasilla.


Sadly with no pay channels I wont see it live.

Well enough, Piispanen held his title with an undecided (114-114, 115-113, 113-115) and Helenius was declared winner with TKO in second. Helenius also became WBO Intercontinental champion and is now 8th in world ranking.

Good for UK too, Froch became world champion with clear points.

Re:


At saturday Robert Helenius defeated Samuel Peter in the ninth round, succesfully defending his WBO Inter-Continental title and also winning the vacant WBA Inter-Continental title.

He is now ranked 9th by The Ring magazine, which is more highly-regarded than rankings by individual associations.
