Green fields set with golden flowers

David R told me that Joe Cordina, who reclaimed the IBF world super-featherweight title in Cardiff on Saturday went to St Illtyd's, the same secondary school as us. I am unconscionably proud of this.

He never should have been stripped of it in the first place, but all Illtydians are simultaneously aggrieved and aggressive; nicely balanced with a chip on each shoulder so for him it was probably just another day in the office.

The super featherweight limit is130 pounds (59 kg). As of this morning I am 12st 3. If I can get down to twelve stone exactly I can challenge Saúl "Canelo" Álvarez the first and only boxer in history to become undisputed champion at super middleweight, having held the WBA (Super), WBC and Ring magazine titles since 2020, and the IBF and WBO titles since 2021.

Prodnose: It's too bad that all these things 
Can only happen in my dreams 
Only in dreams 
In beautiful dreams
