    Hello all

    Just wanted to post this address www.talkingboxing.co.uk

    It's my own boxing site that I launched earlier last month. Got some good people on board like commentator Andrew Clarke, who has his own series with us called 'On the road...'.

    Author Ian Probert started a column for us last month, and we're adding another columnist who will debut next week. One that I'm confident you'll all enjoy hearing from. To my knowledge he hasn't participated in any online boxing media whatsoever.

    The Fight Score collector has also joined us along with the excellent Rian Scalia and a couple of up and comers in Craig Scott and Sean Anderson. Hoping to add more as we go along. If anyone is interested in contributing then please get in touch.

    Have a look, all feedback welcome - positive and negative. I designed it myself, my first time doing it too. Putting my own money into this as well to make it a success in the long-term.

    Thanks for your time

    Yeah, there's some quality content already. Ian Probert is terrific and his cynical eye will be well liked on here if the column was anything to go by.

    Not yet. I'm away at the moment and the boxing book I have with me is the anthology 'The Hurt Business'.

    I believe Ian has signed up here as @Truth42 , although not sure if he intends to post or simply lurk at our collective wit and wisdom :shifty

    I reckon that you would really enjoy 'Rope Burns' and 'Dangerous' , both excellent reads.

    Can't imagine someone as insightful as Mr Probert would have the time to waste on a shower of immature degenerates like ourselves.

    It's probably safer to lurk in this forum. But I do appreciate any kind words. I'll take any that I can get.

    Great website. There's some fucking good stuff on there. I'll pass your site onto Springs Toledo, he'd probably enjoy writing something for you. I'll email him tomorrow and pass on the link.

    Keep up the good work.

    Thanks for your words, mate. Springs is an outstanding writer, in my opinion.
