just read a report on the Khan fight. I don't particularly like boxing but this paragraph from the report puzzled me-'The fight threatened to turn when, in the third round and in the smaller ring that suited Alvarez's attempts to limit Khan's space, the 25-year-old champion began to find his range with the powerful left hook he repeatedly threw'.

I would have thought all rings would have to be the same size or is there a minimum and maximum size they can be?And who decides the size of the ring? Seems it can be used as an advantage,just as Blackburn used to alter the size of their pitch,depending on the opposition.

Different countries, different titles, different ring sizes...

Brave though, and Kahn posed Canelo a lot of problems with his hand speed and movement

Yeah, but he wasn't hurting him, and would have wilted under the body shots in time...

Yeah tbf

Tbf it was his last shot at a box office fight. He's done now. Remember all the hype when he first came on to the scene? It's helped him earn a shitload of money (he's in the top 10 richest sportsmen under 30), but he's not the fighter we hoped he would be

It's his arrogance after it, saying I can the big names so I won't fight certain fighters beneath me, in other words I'll let a big name knock me out for a few mill but I'm not making a cunt out of myself for an average purse
