Michael Watson should have won the World Championship and would have been one of the best boxers of his time, however he has shown that he is more than a World Champion in his achievements, more current boxers should be looking at the example he has set.

what a gentleman michael watson is i remember watchin the fight live on tv and remember crying thinking he would not make it through the night let alone the nxt 20 yrs,a true inspiration to anyone who sustains any type of injury let alone a brain injury.we as a nation were very lucky to have him as our champion,he,s not bitter,angry,or full of hatred.it was a pleasure to watch him chatting about his expierience.

Well done guys, the new format for Ringside is really good. This weeks programe looking at Micheal Watson, Paul Ingle and Spencer Oliver was very intresting and uplifting, three fighters with three very diffrent storys linked togather by their ring accidents. All three of them given the chance woud fight again tomorrow,this is a statement that only another fighter can truly understand, boxers are a special breed, they know and except the risks that go with their chosen trade, they don't ask for our simpthy or pity. Warriors they were, warriors they remain. Micheal Watson Paul Ingle Spencer Oliver Harry Senior and every other Boxer that has suffered in the same way, the boxing world salute's you

Respect to Michael and others. I watched all of Michael's fights and what an excellent boxer and a brave, brave man to come back as he has. Courage doesnt go far enough to describe it.
