Post  adiy price on Sun Feb 05, 2012 11:08 am

ive heard that jimmy moran is boxing former world heavyweight champion tim witherspoon on the pitch in june. if this doesnt get people through the gates nothing will. ive heard jimmys already in training, wont do much for the pitch but if we cant make this pay through the bar and kitchen we might as well pack it all in and go play sunday football

No idea who Jimmy Moran is but I have heard of Tim Witherspoon! Didn't Frank knock him out? Sure Tyson did in about 1985!

He knocked Frank out in the 11th round.

But if the rumours are true, this could be a fantastic opportunity for all concerned.

i think the place will be packed not for the reason that itll be top class boxing but for the two names involved, i think the local papers will jump on this and there will be loads of free advertising. as i said people know jimmy and to see him fighting an ex world champ will bring crowds, not so much young kids but older people with more money to spend. ill make sure i have a ticket if you come ade ill buy you a pint(only you though im getting tighter in me old age)

Haha!! I am not a fan of boxing either so you won't see me there either I am afraid! Good luck to all that are involved in getting this organised and who attend.

Any truth in the rumour that it's a fight to the death, with the loser scheduled to meet Audley Harrison?
