    Best Fight City In The World

    Title says it all!

    I was in Belfast last night watching Frampton Cazares. Never been to this beautiful city but I was told immediately on arrival that it's "officially the best fight city in the world". Who am I to argue after all the Craic I had with the lovely ladies over a few pints of the black stuff! Oh and the atmosphere in the arena was electric.. Ireland, and Belfast in particular has a very strong boxing background and the people in this city love their fighters.

    I was told that the amateur champs are treated like celebs and are well known around the city. Not too many cities can boast that! What's more is that there's a healthy and large supply of young guys n gals all eager to get in the ring and box. In Ireland football isn't played as exclusively by the majority as in other European countries. As a result, you have a lot of young kids fighting in the rings all across town.

    Let's not forget about their bare knuckle heritage either!

    So go on, which city would you say is the 'Best Fight city in the world?'

    I'm limited because I've only been to a handful of countries, but I find it hard to believe that anybody does it at a higher level than my Las Vegas.

    Las Vegas sure does the glitz glam and razzmatazz, no doubt you'll get a great show. But which city do the people appreciate their boxers and boxing the most? New Yorkers do it pretty well, several fight cities in the UK top like Manchester and Liverpool. The east end of London has a great fight history and looked after its fighters well.

    Off course las vegas see here lot of big fight settled in vegas this year. But only for those who got money. The best thing about the sin city is rich boxing fans can have fun in many ways, they only need a big fight date to plan the trip.

    Uk cities are good but New Yorkers are not great boxing fans, who got so much time.

    I hear you guys. It's really hard to argue with NYC and LV because of all the great fights held there. I personally would love to see big fights being held in major cities around the world.

    Question for you Yanks, which state do you reckon produces the best fighters? You've lovely interstate rivalries.

    East Coast and Midwest regions have produced better boxers historically. But Caliifornia is hot right now. Tim Bradley, Mikey Garcia, Andre Ward....

    I'm not one of the stanks -- I mean Yanks -- but it is a tie between California, Texas, Louisiana, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and New York. Also, it depends on what type of fighter, you are speaking of. Holla!

    Texas has produced more champions -- amateurs and pros -- than the East Coast, so that Gulf Coast rules over the East and West Coasts.

    You will be surprised of how many Texans move to the East and West Coasts. Holla!

    Can feel the buzz for the inter-state rivalries from here.
