        Agreed, I thought commentator Richie Woodhall had already decided who the victor was even before the first punch was thrown.Kudos

    Don’t like Warrington he’s a powder puff punching little prick.
    Frampton, Selby, Quigg, kid Galahad, Gamal yafai would all fuck him up, and that’s just the brits.

    I heard Warrington took a beating in the second half. True?
