    I have to admit to being a fan of Tyson. At his peak, he was brutal. If he could be brought back from the past, he'd slightly out weigh Wilder but have to concede about 2 stone plus to both Joshua and Fury. He'd be down 8 inches in height to J & W and 11 inches to F. and about a foot in reach. But with the way he managed to rush in close and unleash those bombs, it's hard to imagine how any of today's big three could hold him off.

    It's easy to have a grand pa day at my age. <laugh>

    Prime Tyson, Lewis, Holyfield, would have no problems at all with the current crop.

    I bow down to the supporters/fans of The Dixie Chicks and the knowledge they have, QM & Rainer... I've heard of them by name, but couldn't tell you anything about them other than I would presume they were an all girl group from America...

    My musical taste is varies enormously, so I wouldn't rule out me searching for one of their top 10 hits, but unless it's got a screeching guitar, booming bad a$$ bass line and banging drums I might not be converted...<laugh><laugh><laugh>

    I'm just a simple Bluegrass boy, and I certainly can't claim any deep musical knowledge. But.....assuming that your love of this headbanging stuff hasn't destroyed both your eardrums, try Long Time Gone.

    No apologies for pointing out the bleeding obvious but if you were wearing a mask in a pub, bar or restaurant how would you eat or drink? <doh> The staff in the pubs and cafes around here are all wearing transparent visors.

    Just looking out the window I can see a couple of pubs where there seems to be very little social distancing and it is 2 o'clock on Friday afternoon not 10 o’clock on Saturday night.
    It is very easy to socially distance in the aisles of a supermarket. The two that I use both have lines marked out at two metre intervals along all the aisles.
    Of course, my simple observations do not take account of the fact that most of the great unwashed are brain dead numpties. Ten million of them voted for Corbyn.

    When I went to Tesco Express at lunchtime with a black scarf wrapped around my face, I got a wry smile from the security man at the door; and then found that half the people inside had no face coverings at all. No expectation that it will be any different at Asda this evening.

    He is not wanting to "come back" it is to raise money for people and not full fighting. Of coarse he might get carried away and move on to that but I cant see him having a real fight as he admits that hunger is not there anymore.

    I just don’t know why you think you are so clever trying to avoid the rules.
    It would make things a lot easier for everyone if people just masked up. It is not difficult and whether you like it or not it is another way that you can drive down the virus.

    anyone boasting about people not social distancing or not wearing a mask just comes across as a complete moron.

    Well I tried wearing a mask for 15 mins when I was doing a bit cleaning around the house and I could not breathe in the thing properly. I will not wear one again.

    wtf , in your house ? it’s only outside where you can’t distance isn’t it ? we wear them at work sometimes , dust mitigation , you have to wear them , and goggles , and ear defenders , hard hats , it’s a faff but it for your health .
    Seems a real reluctance among some people to wear ppe , on sites you just lose your job if you don’t comply ......

    In the house yes as a practise as I would only need to wear one in a supermarket due to the places I go.

    you only need a face covering in shops etc , you don’t need a restrictive mask , it’s to prevent you possibly spreading to others not the other way round , it works only if everyone complies ......there are various virustatic coverings that enable you to breath easily while preventing particles from spreading .....no big. deal mal

    Some of the big supermarkets such as Asda and Tesco have already said they won't enforce it and the Police have said they won't be doing so either

    common sense would tell you that you are better off wearing a mask.
    I haven't been in a shop without one since March, I certainly didn't need to wait until Boris told me to wear one.

    I am sure that the government are delighted how their mask wearing policy is going though.
    They have completely covered themselves now, whilst at the same time there is a good chance many more stupid people can be killed off by the virus.
    A win win situation!
