Scott, i have been a boxing fan for years. i was looking for the latest "odds" on the mayweather vs. hatton fight..... and came across this website !! and from what i see it's alot better then the E.S.P.N. ONE THATS FOR SURE. i am 48 years old and live in corona hills, california. my wife and i go to most of the big fights in las vegas & we will be attending the mayweather vs. hatton fight dec 8th.
back in jr high when i lived back in kansas, had a girlfriend named julie stram she was the offspring of the late kansas city chiefs head football coach hank stram. well anyway they were real good friends with muhammad ali and when ever "ali" would come into town julie would call me and i would go over to the strams house and see the champ !! i met him over 15 times, he even came to see me play basketball one night !!back in high school !! my classmates always would chant..ali,ali,ali.. because they all knew that old scott knew muhammad ali !! i have over 250 autographs of ali.... some even say Cassius Clay ! ali would always ask me what i did with the autographs he signed for me ! i would tell him my mom & dad would keep them and put them in a safe place for me. so i would not put thumb tacks in them and hang them on the wall..... dad said some day "son" these autographs will be worth alot of money !! still to this day i have never sold an ali autograph that i got from him !! just wanted to share this with my new friends on this website !! sincerely scott "ali" james from california... a real muhammad ali fan !!

Welcome aboard Scott!
We are all friendly with each other , but dont worry as you have seen , there are allot of disagreements that go on in here .. ha ha ha .But there is allot of people that have a very good knowledge of boxing from all over the globe .
I cant wait to see the discussions that will happen after Hatton K.O.'s Mayweather ! ha ha ha ... well , hopefully !
This is probably one of the only forum sights that is full of people who are true boxing fans and not idiots that just go in for a stir.
Enjoy and contribute you opinion , every one will appreciate it .
Cheers from Australia ... well an Aussie in Tanzania . :)

He is from Manchester ...that is what they do there . He is always in peak condition before a fight though. I know people that do the same thing in Australia . they give themselves 6 - 8 weeks of intense training before a big fight. ..What ever works for you I suppose.

Scott, welcome to the forums. I'll just echo what everyone else has said and tell you that we've got a great group of posters on the forum here who keep things interesting all the time.
Hope you have a blast at the Floyd and Ricky show. Give Shane(PrettyBoyFloyd) a high five for me

Yeah he's from here. It's very big both me and Ricky come from Greater Manchester (the area surrounding the city).

No I've not although we were both born in Stepping Hill Hospital, my mate used to live in Hattersly (very very rough area where Ricky's from, avoid).

He also eats loads of pies! He's just a normal bloke, local lad who's hit the big time he's a hero/living legend around here.

He does it because he likes them and he's still going strong so why not :)
