Appropriate, or....?

It struck me, as I waited for the Haye vs Valuev boxing result this evening, that a fist fight in Nuremburg might not be the most appropriate sporting event to have on the eve of Remembrance Day.

On the other hand, having a Brit and a Russian (who, by the way, has been much more impressive out of the ring, despite losing within it - we could learn a thing or two about courtesy towards opponents) boxing on German soil is progress of a sort, compared to 65 years ago.

  1. But still, a British winner... and Bermondsey boys aren't known for their tact and gentlemanly conduct.
