James Degale was called David Degale

 

Yesterday

In the past 12 months, British boxers have lost nine world title fights and won only two.

 

Today

Froch's defeat means British boxers have now lost 10 world title fights out of 12 in 2011, leaving Cleverly as the country's sole world champion.

 

 

What do you make of there reporting? Seems as there getting other sports writers to cover there boxing, poor coverage from the BBC. Burns is Interm but still more than 2 wins in 2011.

I wonder if they include British fighters Bellew and Cook.

 

In 2011-

Burns defended the WBO Super Featherweight title 2 times (Laryea and Cook) Cleverly won the WBO Light Heavyweight title and defended it once (Bellew)

Froch defended his WBC Super Middleweight title (against Johnson)

Khan defended his IBF title (against Judah)

 

If you include interims you can add Magee's win (over Barboza) and Burns' win (over Katsidis). In fact I'm always happy to accept interim titles as they carry as much legitimacy as many proper titles (see-Alavarez WBC Light Middleweight reign, Chavez's Middleweight reign, Haye and Povetkin's Heavweight reigns, G. Jones' Cruiserweight reign etc etc etc)

"30: Cincinnati, USA, Krzysztof Wlodarczyk bt Danny Green by 11th-round stoppage (WBC cruiserweight), Chris John bt Stanyslav Merdov by unanimous decision (WBA featherweight)."

 

It was in Australia, maybe you should contact them and ask if they want new people to add content to boxing section.

The BBC havent taken Boxing seriously since the early 80s.

 

Even then ITV were taking it a lot more seriously than them.

 

One thing that should be said though, BBC controllers have tried to increase the BBCs Boxing output since the early 80s but it very rarely gets past the BBC Trust.

 

On the rare occasion that it does they have had there fingers burnt, mainly through their own stupidity such as offering Audley Harrison 75% more than he had been offered by the Sky/Frank Warren deal.

LOL, how's a mistake like that get made? and if they're screwing up the location of a World Title doubleheader, how much faith can we have in the minor card reporting. You right, Joe, sounds like they could use a hand.

The Namibian challenger, who has 28 victories from 30 fights, stepped up the attack in the final rounds but it was too little too late.

 

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/boxing/17329074

 

His Record after Burns fight is won 28 (KO 19) + lost 2 (KO 1) + drawn 0 = 30

Might be nit picking but should they have said 28 from 29 as it was start of there report?
