At least Jackson had the stomach for a fight

WHAT a marathon of sport last Saturday was! Norwich's annual humiliation at Selhurst Park, England losing to Scotland in that minority sport the BBC publicises, and all topped off by a resounding defeat for city boxer 'Action' Jackson Williams.

WHAT a marathon of sport last Saturday was!

Norwich's annual humiliation at Selhurst Park, England losing to Scotland in that minority sport the BBC publicises, and all topped off by a resounding defeat for city boxer 'Action' Jackson Williams.

To be fair to 'Action', despite the fact he only lasted a few minutes, he showed a hell of a lot more guts than your average Norwich City footballer.

His conqueror, Amir Khan, is clearly the real deal, and he looked a lot bigger in the ring than he does in that Vauxhall Zafira advert. I'm not to sure about that Bolton Wanderers badge he wears on his tracksuit though.

I clearly remember Khan popping up in Istanbul before Liverpool's lucky European Cup win last year.

Still, I'm not going to argue with him.
