Thought Quigg fought well last night when he finally got going but I'm more excited about Anthony Joshua. I don't think he'll struggle to out-achieve Harrison and seems a great kid, just hope he doesn't promise much and deliver nothing a la Price.

Once Quigg got going he was good, but he left it late and I think he got a little lucky with the draw. Had the Cuban not bottled the last round and kept fighting then he would have taken the points needed for the victory. Saying that, and unusually i did think a draw was a fair result (not that I am an expert).

It was a very good night, some excellent fights, Camacho v Conquest (what a name) & Danny Connor v Tony Owen both stood out as excellent watches, whilst there was a lot of talk of Cambell going far.

Anyone picked up Tyson's book?

Also Darlo boxer Stuart Hall is fighting for the IBF Bantamweight world title.

Not surprised what happened to Groves last night. Eddie Hearn has done this before to Beltran.

Excellent performance from Hall, that fast start made the difference. What a day for Darlo yesterday! 7-0 win and a new world champion!

He really needs to invest in a cut man before his next fight like! His corner didn't seem to have the foggiest idea what to do when his eye started swelling up! He looked like Quasimodo by the end. Obviously he naturally marks up quite a bit and shipped a few southpaw jabs but a bit of enswell between rounds would have kept it under check!

The Hall family are steeped in Boxing history, with several members winning various titles. Stuart is a real inspiration and role model of what can be achieved in the face of adversity. Win it back.

Who knows there may even be chance to see "Fearless Francis Jones" on Big Brother"In the near future. Anyone with the courage to step into the ring deserves total respect and opportunities when its over.

Good luck to Stu Hall tonight in Leeds. Good to see that it's live on Sky as well.

Good win by Darlo's Stu Hall, to give him a shot at a world title.

Is his brother Paul?

Axel/Ryu Williamson's brother, Troy, seems to be competing somewhere for Team GB at the moment, not sure if he is still likely to be part of the Brazil squad.

Decent representation for Darlington in boxing.

Cheers for that, hope the evening isn't a box office special.

Looking forward to the big fights on Saturday night, I've paid for the showtime special for the first time, not sure whether £16-95 is a bit steep or a bargain. Still it's a heck of a lot cheaper than going down to London. Hope Stu Hall brings back a title to Darlo.

Thought Stuey Hall was very brave and the judges scores were bordering on ridiculous. Some great fights and well worth the money.

The boos around the arena after the decision said it all really.

Especially as they had been for Hoskins at the start. Wonder if Hall will carry on or call it a day?

Great win for Joshua, with an 11th round stoppage of Klitchko. £15m for a nights work can't be too bad.

I wonder if he fancies investing in Darlo?

I didn't this time, but I'll be watching the replays on Sky next weekend. Sounds like it was a classic.

Just seen the Joshua v Klitchko fight for the first time and it was an epic. Joshua has the potential to reign as Heavyweight Champion for as long as Klitchko was around.
