    That's a real shame. Hopefully not Denmark again.

    If its in the UK either Manchester or London being talked about. Also think he wont fulfil his dream of fighting at The City Ground.

    I think more than likely it will be at a neutral venue/country.

    Pity. I'd love to have seen a packed City Ground rocking to Carl Froch.

    That one has been taken off but if you search for on youtube and sort by newest added there will probably be one - in spanish at least.

    Wow what a KO

    Quite a few issues to sort out for Froch, needs a definite response from Interbox regarding the Bute rematch. Adonis Stevenson is the mandatory for Carl's IBF title so if Carl doesn't take the fight then he'd lose the belt (not that he needs a belt now really). Obviously the Kessler fight is the big one which looks like it will happen over the summer sometime. Therefore I'd like to see Froch face Bute or Stevenson depending if Lucien goes for the rematch, if he does then Carl can vacate the IBF and go for Mikkel straight after. If Bute doesn't want it then defend against Stevenson and then go for Mikkel.

    I'm glad it's not at the City Ground, probably rain & the over zealous stewards would probably ruin it.. For me I'd like to see it at the MEN or maybe somewhere in Germany, then finish with Ward in LV dream land!

    Khan beat Molina who retired on his stool before the 10th

    Shame if he'd have lost it'd hopefully have been the last we heard of the gobby prick

    David Price hype train derailed after Old Man Thompson brushes him behind the ear with his wrist, rendering him senseless in the second round.

    Scouse living up to their city of culture tag by booing the US anthem too.

    I hope he was tested for drugs!

    Talk to me, Goose.

    Anyone watch the Kell Brook v Shawn Porter fight over the weekend. Quality job done by Brook in the States, although I didn't have him by such a wide margin as the US judges, sets up a possible all British clash with Amir Khan.

    Hate Amir Khan. Hopefully he's put on his arse. Was going to watch on Saturday but ive never actually heard of them?

    Excellent performance, although how one judge saw it 117 - 111 is beyond me. First British challenger to go to the States and win the belt in 30 years. Khan in May at Old Trafford or the Etihad. Mouth-watering.

    Was a brilliant win, not as tidy as he would of wanted but still a win and a world title. Did anyone else think Porter was terrible? There is little to no skill in his boxing, just constant lunges and wild swings. Thought Kell dealt with him very well after about the forth round as he started very slowly. I thought the ref was awful, kept letting Porter get away with sticking his head in after Kell picked up that nasty cut. Oh and the judges score cards were crazy, i had Kell up by 2 but there wasn't the massive gap like the judges made out.

    Love the post fight stuff with Kell baiting him, telling Khan to get in line now. Also love Ryan Rhodes telling Khan to his face that Kell would beat him . I don't hate Khan but he has dropped into the same mould as Haye for me, more bothered about fame than boxing and arrogance which has crossed that boarderline.

    Porter was awful. I think he was hoping that by charging forward like that the judges would favour his "aggression" and get the decision. Brook, whilst not as slick as usual, was far more accurate and landed the much cleaner shots.

    Once again Jim Watt proves he can't call a fight

    Not a big fan of Khan, and whilst I do think he has more "names" on his record than Brook, I would fancy Brook to take him out. Khan's problem is he can't take a punch.

    ^ Agree with most of that - Porter has always been an ugly fighter and yes, the ref was useless. Actually, the refereeing was useless all night, some absolute clowns in the middle for the undercard fights.

    I've never understood the Khan hatred. He often gets called arrogant, but I think he actually seems very humble - particularly by boxing standards. And, in spite of the goading, he was very respectful of Brook in the post-fight and on Twitter. For me, that's a 50/50 fight and one I'm already excited about.

    I really hope the Brook v Khan fight happens. It is surely a no brainer for either man as it is where the big money for them is and it is a really tough division. I think it would be a close run thing but fancy Khan.

    Regarding Brook. I was surprised he won but pleased for him. Porter was just totally wild and ragged throughout. I do think he thought as he was the champion and it was in his back yard the judges would be fooled by his agression.

    Too close to call.

    Disappointed in Quigg, thought he looked average.

    Degale looked decent.
