So I'm leaving in about ten and a half hours. And as much as I am ridiculously excited, I am also rather nervous about a trip into the big wide world. In 24 hours I'll be in Dubai, 24 hours after that I'll be in Bangkok and three days later I'll be in Ho Chi Minh City. I've had a really great time trying to get round and say goodbye to most people before I go, but if I didn't get a chance then have a massive cuddle from me and I will make sure that I see you when I get back, on July 12th by the way.

"Ladies and Gentleman i would like to announce the main event , this is the essence of what it is to be a true champion as the Undisputed Superlight Weight Champion of the World , Kostya Tszyu takes the contender Ricky Hatton in a bout to show who is best - no excuses!" I will be in the pub (The Old Crown or wherever its on) watching this one closely as it will be pure boxing the moment these two step in the ring. I remember playing basketball with him and Johnny Lewis among other boxers as they used it as a warm down (we were struggling to keep up with them) @ Newtown PCYC when it was still around. The games were quite physical but played in good spirit-always , as Kostya and Johnny are ... read more
