    I suspect a lot of incidents at weigh ins are just publicity stunts but this did seem to be more than that - fine/suspend them but banning them seems a bit over the top. After all, we want them to be violent when it suits us.

    Ignore them. Like badly behaved children, they'll eventually shut up and get bored.

    They should be forced to fight until one person is either too injured or tired to go on. That'll teach them. Also, they should do it in front of lots of people, so they can learn a bit of humility.
    No longer "resting"

    Brilliant, first time I've seen any of that footage. What an utter tool, good work from Haye for once.

    Very good performance by Amir Khan last night. Mayweather is offering Pacquiao a fight in May. is he trying to avoid Khan or getting another big pay-day before he takes on Khan? I still think Mayweather would win if he can keep away from the lure of the burgers out of the ring but Khan looks a different fighter these days.

    Fantastic performance from Khan. I actually think Khan will cause Mayweather more problems than Pacquaio now - that fight is 5 years too late.

    Mayweather won't face Khan after last night - he'll have 3 more easy fights and retire (beating Marciano's 49-0 record).
