I hope some hard core boxing fans saw the Pattinson / Jenkins fight. Wow!
Fun fight to watch….Pattinson has a rugged boxing style that is fun to watch…good young fighter…needs more defensive upper body movement with that style… Congrats Pattinson …looking for improvement…looking to see this fighter again….
Agreed! Good insights into Pattinson.
Typical Newcastle fighter rough and no skills
The ref stoppage of McCormack vs Socci was terrible. So often, it’s like UK referees are acting under instructions to get the hometown guy a stoppage.
Guess it was action packed
