Event 4 – Boxing, or, “Hit ‘Im !!”

Onto boxing in the evening for Allan and Mr. S after watching the finish of the cycling over a couple of beers, a very large Italian meal and a bottle of their finest Brunello. Nice.

Met up with Dave and Steve and proceeded to watch 10 bouts where the little lads gave us 2 1/2 hours worth of entertainment. Top marks to Taylor (the boxer not the guy who got us the tickets) from Team GB who got through to the last 8 and there was a couple of real good scraps. One to look out for in the next round is the Korean seconds who were bobbing, weaving, making every punch and defensive move with their man in the ring.

London’s transport system held up well and we were back to Chez Hardcow in an hour from the Excel centre.
