    Any Boxing Fans?

    Not me I'm afraid.

    But I have to say that I'm really chuffed that a fellow Morecambian has just become World Heavyweight Champion after overcoming many challenges in his life.

    So tonight I'll be raising a glass to Tyson Fury - well done lad!

    I was fearing for Wilder, thank god they threw the towel in, there was blood coming out of his ear and out of his mouth. I like boxing but that was a little too brutal for even me, I was glad it stopped when it did, hopefully he hasn't suffered any lasting damage but Fury certainly made a mess of him.

    I haven't seen the fight and I won't be looking to find it - not my idea of sport.

    And from what you say Wilder was in a sorry state.

    Hopefully he will be OK, I haven't heard any concerns about his health so far.

    Seems he's OK 59 and he was a bit pissed that the towel was thrown in, says he's a warrior and wanted to be carried out on his shield. At least he walked out of the ring, if it had gone on much longer he would have been carried out, and maybe for good.

    I felt like one of those Romans in the Colosseum, blood every where, but still waiting expectantly for the kill.

    It was quite barbaric really and the PC Brigade will be out in full force this week, no doubt.

    I'm not at all certain this boxing malarkey should be called "sport" though?

    Hats off to Fury though, OMG what a warrior.

    Yet again Fury has done what people said he couldn't do. A supreme display from him. The 1st man in history to dethrone two champions who had made 10 or more defences. Joshua v Fury must happen now. A domestic dust up for all the belts!
