Dexter's Thoughts

A Game of Thrones was a decent show with some really good fights on it, fight of the night was with out a doubt Nash v Jones and I think it would have been even better if there wasn’t such a big weight difference. Other boxers who caught my eye were Billy Evans, Bobby and of course the 2 bbcolumn Challenge belt holders Jamiah Corbin and newly crowned champ Nathaniel Henry, all of them boxed well. The Birmingham boxing column looks forward to Triple G's next show.
