I love Manfredo, have done since his Contender days and casually followed his progress since then.

His attitude has changed big time, he didn't use to be this arrogant.

He will lose tonight. He'll be done by the 7th or 8th round.

Yeah, he went out early on and then someone pulled out the competition and he got voted back in.

Lost in the final to Sergio Mora, who has since beaten him again. I think the general feeling was that the decision the first time round was wrong. Thought he'd done enough to win it.

Those three losses are the only 3 on his record as far as I know.

He did look well out of his league but I don't think that was enough to stop the fight.

Was a bit early but there was only one winner. Manfredo was like a rabbit caught in the headlights.

Yet another fighter who underestimated Joe.

it was annoying that in the two main fights the challenger basically froze, took a beating and lost in the third round. Fight fans can be a bit annoyed that the Calzaghe fight was stopped denying them some fun but Manfredo can't complain. For thirty seconds he just stood there taking the punches and did nothing. The ref can argue he wasn't moving so how was he to know how bad he was hurt? How did he plan to win without throwing any punches?

Precisely - I thought it was early, but I counted at least 60 unanswered punches in the whole of that round so Manfredo gave the ref no choice.

Enzo battered that muppet Gunn too.

Enzo Calzaghe trained 7 fighters yesterday, and they all won! Not a bad record at all!

Did I hear right that Kessler pulled out of a Calzaghe fight? FW is gonna make a massive offer to Jermain Taylor apparently, so hopefully we'll see an August clash between the two.

Shocking boxing card by Frank Warren. Joe Calzaghe, Enzo Maccarinelli and Amir Khan had the most uncompetitive fights ever. Only Michael Jennings came out of the debacle with any credit.

Calzaghe did what he had to do against a fighter who froze in the third round. He would have been battered if the fight had continued much longer.

Would love to see John Thaxton fight Amir Khan for the British title. Thaxton would knock him out, no worries..

Like some of you guys, I had a few quibbles with the Saturday show:

The judges scoring of the Jennings fight was Awful, he was miles in front of a declining Takaloo

Who sanctioned Gunn as a creditable opponent for Enzo?

Manfredo's an ok fighter, but he'd only ever fought twice at super middleweight, a lamb to the slaughter for Calzaghe, who is a natural light-heavy..

Khan-Thaxton would be good, I think Khan would win, but Thaxton would test him.

Looking forward to seeing the contender fights, I know they've already taken place, over the next six weeks on itv 4

I went to Cardiff on Satuday and can say that I was a bit dissapointed with the card Warren put out but at least it was exciting1 I would prefer to see a knockout in the third than a borring points decison.

I enjoyed the boxing skills on display in the Jennings v Takaloo bout. How sprightly was Jennings? On his toes for the whole fight. If he was a puncher, to go with his seemingly endless energy then he could be a great boxer.

I also thought the ref stopped the Calzaghe fight too early although Manfredo wasn't returning punches. I think I was disappointed as I wanted him to be properly dismantled due to his arrogance. He seemed a bit more dignified afterwards though.

The ex bare knuckle boxer Gunn was out of his depth against Maccarinelli and it showed.

And Khan was given another straight forward opponent. I know he's on a learning curve but I think all boxing fans would like to see him stretched to see how far he has come and (if indeed) how far he has to go. Very fast hands though.
