    Boxing/UFC 2018-22

    Oliviera at least gives him a competitive fight. Strong on feet and on the ground. Very underrated. I think there is more to come from the weigh in too. He looked very shocked to be over.

    Boxing/UFC 2018-22

    I saw the result this morning before golf and was shocked. Still not seen it but I wouldn’t be surprised if Canelo was hoping to land a big punch and over-relied on that. He’s taken that tactic previously. I must admit to not knowing much about Bivol. Only seen him twice, I think and didn’t...

    I semi expect Khabib to make a come back very soon.

    Ronnie O'sullivan

    In the modern era (1970’s onwards) when snooker became more mainstream and gained a following from TV, O’Sullivan is clearly the best to have played. He has the most 147’s, the most century breaks, most ranking tournament wins and most Triple Crown wins. After last night he is also has the most...

    Is this the end of WFH?

    Agree. Presenteeism is the crux of what JRM is trying to impose on the civil service.

    My dusty garage. Moved my cross trainer in there and it feels like I’m inducing an asthma attack every time I use it, when I don’t have asthma. Looking like it’s going to have to be painted. Joy. I could always move the cross trainer back to my office I suppose.

    I recently watched a documentary about the best heavyweights of the 90’s. Lennox Lewis came out on top and was obviously an amazing fighter. Unified the division. Good athlete, top boxing brain and knockout power. Plus he beat everyone he faced. I don’t normally like to compare generations...

    There is no way Fury retires with >£100m still to bank. I think he’ll be praying Joshua somehow comes out on top in the rematch as that is THE money fight. Plus Usyk provides a much, much tricker fight.

    Boxing/UFC 2018-22

    I’ve just placed my bets. This should be an easy night for Fury. But he looks very relaxed, is he a little too relaxed...? Anyway, lumped on Fury 4-6 and by decision. Also a few quid on Whyte 1-3 in case he catches him cold. Plus Whyte individual rounds 7-11 as they were 40-1 and he carries his...

    Literally, a no win situation. I always say my wife is not happy, unless there is something to moan about. Not from within hearing rang mind!

    TV Series - What Are You Watching?

    The new series of Taskmaster has started well. I like the mix of the panel, even though I’ve never heard of at least one of them.

    Parents in Jump 360 who bring their children as an excuse for them take centre stage. Yes Roger, everyone has seen you do a front flip. Well done. Now move along and let the 7-9 years old queuing up behind you get a go. Also, the sweatband is a tad over the top.

    Not unless he hasn’t taken him seriously. Whyte is limited, but does have KO power. I think Fury dispatches him in 3-5. However, might have a few individual rounds on Whyte in case of the upset.

    Is this the end of WFH?

    My point was that no one moaned when civil servants were instructed to work from home. Many of those will have been junior staff in customer facing or customer support roles, who in the private sector would likely to have been furloughed. However, technology (and hardware/infrastructure) was...

    Boxing/UFC 2018-22

    Terrible idea. Hope neither get hurt. Both fantastic fighters in their pomp, particularly Barrera. I do wonder how these fights get sanctioned (‘exhibition’ perhaps?), Barrera will be close to fifty I’d guess. Money talks though. One of these comebacks/exhibitions/fighting Youtubers is going to...

    Is this the end of WFH?

    Civil Servants seem to get a bad wrap. No one moaned during the pandemic when they were working at home, not on furlough, keeping the country going. The Department for Education has come under a lot of scrutiny. No one questioned them working from home when they were sorting out free school...

    Nothing to do with trainers, but what type of car is that in the background?

    Trainers aka training shoes

    I don’t have any on display so to speak. The ones I’ve never worn are in boxes on the top of our wardrobes. The others are stored in numerous shoe racks under the stair cupboard and in the garage. At the risk of sounding a bit weird, having a winter/summer rotation makes storage easier...
