York Hall is one of the very best i've been to.




You have to love York Hall.  Great atmosphere and also the knowledge that so many great British and international fighters have fought there over the years and that there may be a star of the future on the undercard.

I thought the Hallam Arena in Sheffield wasn't bad (Maussa fight).

I broke my boxing cherry at Bowlers in Salford which wa.s...er.....interesting. Grin

Worst view i've had was at Wembley for Bruno-McCall.

No mate. Its a sad state of affairs IMO when they cant control the temperature in buildings of such large capacity  Embarrassed

York Hall
Thomas and Mack
MGM Grand
02 London
COMS
Trent FM Arena

Most good (COMS not got for viewing) 02 was the best though I think for noise, and that had the least fans in it out of all the fights I watched

The MSG is hopefully my next trip for a fight.  A trip for Pacquiao v Cotto would have been good if its signed but I can see that being in Vegas.

O2
COMS

Robin Park Arena
Thomas & Mack
MGM

Plus loads of town halls,  social clubs,  sheds  Grin  which my grandad use to drag me round when I was a kid,  to watch local boys club & amateur boxing matches.

Another one who wants to experience MSG,  was hoping for a British headliner but can't see that happening anytime soon  Cry

COMS (will never go to a football ground again for boxing)
MGM
MEN
Thomas & Mack
Birmingham NIA
Wolves Civic Hall
Aston Villa Leisure Centre

Plus a few other local small halls and clubs.

Thomas & Mack was personally my favourite.

MSG is without a doubt the one i want to get on my list the most, and hopefully a decent big card down at the O2 as i still haven't been there yet either.

Trent FM/Nottingham Arena - My local so to speak. Been many times for Froch and once for Khan. Atmosphere is awesome. Agree with what someone said earlier about the heat. Went last summer for Witter v Bradley & Froch and was unreal. Even in the back it waqs unbearable and was sweating like a pig.
MEN Arena - Superb atmposphere again and very impressive once you get to your seat. Great location. However I feel the facilities are poor as lack of toilets, bars, etc could do with updating.
COMS - Great stadium and the atmosphere that night was electric but like its been said many times before stadiums aren't good for boxing.
MGM Grand - Brilliant views alround. Very surreal walking down from your room straight to the arena without going outside. Shame about the result
MSG - Awesome. Facilities are great. Not a bad seat in the house. Beer and food delivered to your seat. Comfortable seats, plenty of room. Lots of different food/beer options. 10/10

York Hall - always great atmosphere with good views
O2 - great view of Monte Barrett falling into the ring
Olympia - the night Naz entered on the magic carpet - great atmosphere, good views, great uppercut
Royal Albert Hall - views not too good from the high seats
Wembley conference centre - was definitely past its sell by date
Thomas & Mack - 1st Vegas fight
A few local smaller venues
Need a good excuse to go to MSG
