Could this be the Johnny Otis to Muhammad Ali's Etta James?

Will Dereck Chisora and/or David Haye end up dead in a brawl or gunfight?

Chisora manages to be an embarassment in the morally and culturally bankrupt world of heavyweight boxing. That's an achievement.

Bring back Andrew Golota.

Given our lack of heavyweight talent other than these two (despite his appauling failings as a human being Chisora boxed admirably over the weekend), whaddya reckon to them getting a lengthy (9 month) ban and then facing each other in the ring for decent pay-per-view sums considering they're a pair of average British heavyweights, before the year is out?

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

See, why bother going to all that rigmarole of "research" and "setting up google alerts" and "reading the newspapers" to find out the health of your DDP picks when you can just ask people on Twitter?

Heard today that Dave Charnley - aka The Dartford Destroyer - died earlier in the month,aged 76. Fierce lightweight who still holds a record because his 1962 destruction of Darkie Hughes in a British title fight is still the shortest lightweight title fight in UK history. 40 seconds, including the count!

I almost regretted picking him for my draft pool when i read his cancer was supposed to be in remission.
He had been quite active with writing lots of articles the past couple of months

Did anyone else see the healthy and (fairly) sane Frank Bruno being given Piers Morgan's shallow as a spoonful of spunk in depth treatment a couple of weeks back? Either way, suicide or reckeless self-endangerment via drugs and fast living seem well off the Bruno agenda at the moment.
