A man from Killay who hates boxing has managed to skilfully navigate his way through a night out with the lads watching the boxing.

Administrator Pete Bowen, 36, has been watching boxing with his friends for the last 18 years. However none of them have any idea he’d rather be at home with a glass of wine and a good box set.

Pete said: “One of the boys was talking about David Haye so I took a wild stab at his nickname and muttered ‘fucking Hayemaker’, fortunately everyone just went ‘yeah, yeah. Fucking Hayemaker.’

“It’s not easy trying to maintain my secret. I’ve stayed up until 5am before now, chipping in money to watch a fight that lasted all of two minutes.

“The boys take it quite seriously, discussing how much these men weigh and incorrectly predicting how and when they’ll ‘go down’. All I want to do is highlight the associated health problems that come with being repeatedly punched.

“The worse part is all the pictures. Why a group of scrawny wankers have to have pictures of themselves holding a fist as if they’re actual boxers is beyond me.

“I’m in too deep. I don’t even know the difference between Rocky and Rambo.”
