An article on the world's most active and also worst fighter about to retire....and he's British. Hurrah!

Sounds like a top bloke who deserves massive respect for his dedication to the sport, if little else. Congratulations pal....enjoy your retirement.

For Buckley's 200th fight, they picked him up from home in a stretch Limo and gave him the rockstar treatment (which he fully deserves IMO) He lost his fight that night (unsurprisingly) but was presented with a trophy for his services to British boxing.

Men like Peter Buckley are the heart of the sport and I would suggest that men of his calibre are a damn sight better for boxing than all the PBF's in the World.

As they say Floyd, money can't buy class.

Couldn't hit a cow's ar5 with a barn door, but has a chin made out of granite. Amir Khan should offer him a job.

Well done to Peter he used boxing the easy way, went into fights with only one mission to survive and remain standing. He got paid thousands of pounds for not trying, fantastic way to go Peter!!

**************************************************
Amir should ask him to do a chin swap

...by the way, I thought it was "couldn't hit the side of a barn door" and "Couldn't hit a cow's a.r.s.e. with a shovel." You're getting your metaphors mixed mate...ooh alliteration!!

Buckley's a legend, the journeyman's journeyman like Reggie Strickland of the States.

He's not going out there getting his head caved in in a round or two, he has the right blend of ring awareness, durability and a trick or three to almost always make the distance. He's lost hundred, but he's very rarely been beaten.

Fighters like Buckley are the pillars of the boxing game. When you want your fighter to go a few rounds rather than 1 and done, or you need a quick substitute, there's Buckley ready and willing to go. Every bit as important as the superstars.

Hope he gets the win tonight!

Anyone know if it's going to be televised? I'd like to watch it and I just hope there's one or two knowledgable fans in the crowd who appreciate what he's done and they give the man a standing ovation.

He deserves it.

Does anyone know if this remarkable man really has the most bouts on record?
If not him, then who? I seem to remember Harry Greb having 298 fights. Any advances?

Let's tell the truth. Referees and judges were always against him, otherwise he'd had achieved big things in boxing

===============================================

Exactly what i was thinking, he was very unlucky in 200 of those fights, could have been so different if it wasnt for those biased judges
