Anybody watching?

Iím on about proper fighters, not the jake **** face ****



Well Williams loses the earlier rounds and Andrade gets the decision, and the beating of his life. He was exhausted and beaten up. Williams was relentless, proper tuff man

Tuff lad Williams and feel for him but Andrade was the better boxer, saying that, could be him near on done now for me after that, plus I cannot see anybody not wanting to take a fight with him after that performance

Conor Benn stops Vargas in 82 seconds

What do we think to that, hard to tell, super quick jab and powerful rights

Wonder who will be next?

Found this so I thought I would share it. Said if before what this man did is the most incredible thing I have ever seen

Moving

Been a long dark tunnel with all this Covid crap but I truly believe we have a way out of it now.

Question myself at times, I like my freedom and being out and about, been a long, long time since we can actually do what we want, canít stand being housebound

Things are looking good

Yeah definitely should have called it a day after Warrington, that fight he aged massively. And yeah Santa Cruz is a hell of a fighter, I did agree with the cards on both occasions though

Similar to me at the time

I thought Warrington retired him myself, wasnít in the same league fitness wise and had been going downhill prior to this fight as I saw him. Saying that, Santa Cruz is a hell of a fighter! so the competition was there!

Split decision maybe, but the scorecard giving it to quigg was a joke. He won maybe 3 or 4 rounds that night. Admittedly quigg didn't really show up and if he had been on form then I believe the outcome would have been different , but I guess we'll never know

Two weight world champion who,s had some hard fights, very experienced, was definately interested but at the weight knew from round one that he was going to be up against it , just too small against a fighter with a great jab.He gave it a go to become a three weight world champion.Total respect from me hope he has a happy retirement.

Frampton had gone well before this fight imho. Been a great fighter but i guess you have to know when to give up

He was lucky against Quigg, managed to turn over Santa Cruz which was a hell of a result and then the loss to Warrington was it for me. Had some tough fights

Watched Lennox Clarke at the Birmingham arena when on the same card as Nathan when losing on points to Lerone Richards. However last evening took the British and commonwealth super middleweight titles with a stoppage. Strangely enough I got talking to a lad Ďremained friends sinceí whose mates with Lennox and so pleased to see his mate win. What a tough, tough lad Lennox is. Well done, chuffed for the lad.

I know Povetkin is knocking on a touch but didnít he have covid in January as that could explain Ďother than ageí a lacklustre performance. Still, no doubt a nice payday.

Quite emotional for his dad though I guess, wish him all the best and hope he does not get hurt

Poor from povetkin , he looked wrong from the moment he entered the ring , like he,d been out all night , strange, was hoping shea s lad would win, that was probably his last fight, young hatton wont be climbing too far up the ladder , and as for that other heavyweight farce the least said the better.

Well, Whyte got the win. When he started throwing those big overhand looping rights it thought, oh no, bit reckless that. Corner put him straight and the punch that did the damage was a short straight right! Proves he has the power. Think he will have learned a lot from that myself?

As for his next opponent, Calling Wilder out

That is an extremely dangerous fight for me. Canít see him getting much from that if it happens other than KOd and a decent payout $

Better off looking for an easy fight and then hope that he gets a crack at the winner of Tyson vs. Joshua. I would like to see him fight Joshua again, rocked him last time and gave him a lot of trouble

Agree there mate. Wardley, not convinced at all. Those low hands and aggressive style are not a good sign for me. Easy to hit. I like his shape but he has to get a stone off if he is serious and I question how he would fit in against a true heavyweight who can box

Cheeseman is a great watch, athlete who wears his heart on his sleeve, up for a war every time I have seen him. Warrior

Agreed. Cheeseman vs Metcalf was 10/10 and I can't see Whyte vs Povetkin being better than that.

The less said about Wardley vs Molina the better.

Watched a program on Sky about him the other day, got some good boxers behind him there with his Dad and uncle Mathew. Massive ask of him though to be as good as his dad though. Can see a Tszyu revisited on the horizon pending weights

Letís hope we have another British world champion in the making

Think Iím going to watch the DW fight tonight. Two careers on the line here for me.Somebody is going to get KOd, letís hope nobody gets seriously hurt

Big UFC fight tonight too, both men can strike

Dillian Whyte for me, CANNOT lose this one otherwise it could be career over

Very dangerous fight, no lapses this time, has to take Povetkin out, rocked him a few times in their previous fight, has to be all over him when he hurts him again and make it count, get it wrong and he will be KOd again, no doubt

Just watched the Canelo fight, not a mark on him

Best fighter on the planet for me, immense

Called BJS out in May straight away

I like BJS but he has to be on absolute point to stand a chance like when he beat Lemieux. Should be an interesting one that fight fans, southpaw

Not that it will matter

Thereís around a hardcore 100 fans that would follow Nathan all over but how many would lose the attraction should he lose his unbeaten record probably doesnít bare thinking about.

I donít think the fan base will drop mate, the opposite, people follow them beciase they like what they are about. The Hattons for example always used to bring a good following and it always ended in a riot

He is fighting for your town so he represents your area, puts you on the map

Just spoke to my other mate Dan Hewitt who owns boxing tv and is great mate of Nathan too. Says itís something heíll be talking to Nathan about regards dropping his hands as itís something that he never did even in his amateur days. Just donít understand it myself as heís much much better working behind that great jab of his. Dan also says it seems that he just isnít finding away off finishing off his opponents and when I asked if heís concerned that he may get tagged his response was Ďitís not that but seems wary not to want to tire himself outí. Hopefully a few harsh words from a great mate could be a wake up call he needs to stick to his strengths.

Never enjoy watching Nathan as heís such a great mate and makes me ill just watching.

I guess another thing that brings added pressure is that Iíd assume Frank Warren signed Nathan up on the strength of a thousand or so tickets that he can sell at £50 a pop cheapest and to not now have fans allowed into venues then itís an extra pressure to remain unbeaten ready for when they can return.

Thereís around a hardcore 100 fans that would follow Nathan all over but how many would lose the attraction should he lose his unbeaten record probably doesnít bare thinking about.

Anyway - Thankfully all as of yet go home safe and sound.

As below post suggests I agree. As for punch power he never really got to throw the right ĎI do agree however that itís got to be more powerful and needs to plant his feet moreí. Thought that the bell saved Oliver after going down from that left to which he felt.

Agree

Styles make fights, tall with a great reach for the weight, thatís his strength, drops his hands too much and will get punished for it when he steps up in class, not his weight either, lacks the power

Looks in great shape though but I think he was tiring to the end after a few flurryís and he was buzzed in the 7th

Got the win though

Nathan wonít need me to tell him Ďbut I willí that heís got to do better. Keep that right hand up as it leaves him open to the left hook.

He can take a good workout from that whilst maintaining his unbeaten record in these unprecedented times where no fans allowed.

Must have being so so different with no fans there but hopefully at the next bout fans will be allowed in as that is a massive plus for him.

Knowing his trainer heíll be getting a bit of a talking to and quite right too.

Against Stokes he became embroiled in a battle which was brought on by him wanting to put a show on due to the amount of tickets that he had sold. He was surprised that I enjoyed the Ambomo performance much better because of what was at stake Ďlearnt beforehand that providing he came through that then he would be on the undercard at the Birmingham Arena and to which he got tv exposureí as that to me showed how disciplined he can and had to be. His words afterwards to me were Ďyou werenít bored thení to which I replied thereís even more skill in trying not to get hit and itís the best Iíve seen you box.

Agree that he should win comfortably and hopefully he will and then continue to move onwards and upwards. As usual heís certainly being putting in the graft and being sparring with the top British lads.

Heís got to work behind that fantastic jab of his. His defensive skills are very very good when required as can be seen to good effect - and it had to be when defeating the big hitting Serge Ambomo.

Edit - Also he can fight but his attributes are a fantastic jab and excellent punches to the body. Against Serge Ambomo he was so disciplined that night and that to me was his best performance of his career thus far.

Got into a brawl with Tom Stokes for the midlands title until his trainer told him that he needs to work behind that jab, and indeed he did as he needed to take those last 3 or 4 rounds to which he did with good defensive skills.

Nathan says that the star attraction has had to pull out due to a positive Covid test but BT sports are still going ahead with the show.

When googling Carl Frampton it says that he asked for more time to get over a hand injury which sounds bizarre this late in the day.

Edit . Went drop off some good luck cards ĎHeís ambassador for our local youth club for adults with learning disabilitiesí and says Ďhe hopes he lets no one down, but Iím readyí.

Put in all the hard hours and hopefully he will do the business.

Good luck Nathan.

Thanks for the good wishes lads

shame more corners dont protect their fighters like this

Like the lad, has a unique style with the low leading hand. I expect him to get the win but it will be interesting to see how he progresses with that style when he comes up against top class opponents

Watched it on Sky Gerry, will see if I can find one later.

Watched the Warrington fight, not at the races, seemed disinterested if Iím honest, sure there is a reason, out for 12 months, couple of new kids, could have took its toll on his focus? His game his high tempo and on them, like a different fighter, hope he comes back as he was before

Hope all well Gerry btw

Well, I see Warrington lost, just about to watch it.

Just watched the Barret Martinez fight, was a complete and utter embarrassment that result. Martinez won that fight for me!

One of the judges cards, what was it 118, 110 against Martinez ffs. He should be banned from scoring a boxing match ever again # ****er

Sadly can be of the most corrupt sports in the world at times

27th February. Undercard of Carl Frampton on BT sports.

Nathan Heaney v Ryan Oliver.

Nathan says Ryan is technically sound but is ready.

Come on Nathan hope that you will continue to push forward in your career but above all else hope all come through their bouts safe and sound.

I agree, I bet out of the two though Poirier looks like his face has been run over by a bus tomorrow

I can remember when Bisping beat Henderson, somehow lol !

I agree about the wide stance, the man has some serious power in that LH and he was not landing those devastating punches, did in the first, a nice elbow or two as well.

Gonna have to watch the second Diaz fight, think it was CM who did a leg job on him, canít remember?

I would have thought they would all want Kalib N back in the octagon to give him a fist lesson lol

Think the kicks to the leading leg could have troubled him
it was the reason he lost the fight IMHO his leg was dead
I see now he has said exactly that my leg was dead

if you notice he always throws his normally super accurate punches from that wide stance but he lost that wide stance by the 2nd round and his mobility and his punches were then missing the target
its certainly buggered up his career I would have though
so maybe the next big match would be Poirier v Diaz ????

Watched the fight. CM ahead for me until he got caught. Respect though, both guys excellent strikers, caught CM and finished him. Opposite to the first fight!

Think the kicks to the leading leg could have troubled him, didnít think he was focused for me CM, did not look as sharp, the leg kicks could have held his attacks back? To be fair though, I donít think they were overly powerful and not enough to do damage, saying that, I donít feel them lol

I think he thought he could walk it and paid the price. Also the time out wonít help

3rd time, could go either way, both can finish, I would put my money on CM

Exhausted just watching it, brutal

Yeah, the division is stacked, just hope boxing politics dont stop them geting in with each other!

Unfortunately i cant see the Spence Crawford fight being made unless one moves promotional outfit, would be very interesting tho. I lean towards Crawford, but only because of the car crash and the fact that Danny Garcia just didnt pose enough of a threat to show Spence isnt carrying any damage, but is a proper 50/50!

Very similar thoughts to me mate on all counts

If Davis and Lopez meet it should be very interesting. Lopez has the reach and I thought he was amazing against Loma, timed him perfectly. Davis can land and when he does, Santa Cruz

Saying that, so can Lopez

Probably the most competitive weight at the moment followed by Crawford and Spence etc

All got to add up to some great fight nights though for the fans

Fair play to Garcia, was a good win and sickening shot to end it, but unless his defence improves, Tank and Lopez will walk through him and Loma will box his ears off. I think he stops Haney though.

I cant see Tank beating Lopez, he has good power but is a small Lightweight, I see Lopez doing the same as he done with Loma to Davis.

Very exciting division tho!

Nice one

Interesting fight, brilliant shot by Campbell in the 3rd was it, could have ended embarrassing that

Looks good Garcia. Not sure about the planted feet, looking to land the powerful shots, and he got hit a lot for me. Needs to up his game, there is some proper talent in that division

For me Davis tops the lot but itís VERY close, some good fights on there way though

Exactly that Gerry, he quit. Turn your back in a fight and itís over. I thought Pulev was close to getting it stopped in the Joshua fight, he turned his back and walked away in one of the rounds!

I thought he turned his back on him when he realised his best just wasnt knocking him down and he wasnt going to win and he was blowing and out of steam and getting beaten up
his trainer said he wouldnt do the gym work and it showed

Seen that fight Jeff where he turns his back on him. You canít help think his mental scars held him back and messed him up, sad really

Bit of a rebel in the area that was for sure. Ruled by the fist and not to be messed with, from a fighting perspective, I respect that

Met him a couple of times , a bloody lunatic , much better fighter out of the ring than in. That was world in action programme i think , Still holds the record of fighting for a title after only 8 pro fights, turned his back in that against john l gardner.True hard man who feared no one, his son is a lifer infact both his sons i think.There is a film being made about him due for release next year.

A few people discussed Paul Sykes a while ago. I was watching some boxing and came across this, thought I would share it

Paul Sykes

Sad story really, misspent youth and upbringing sadly. There are a few chapters

I stayed up and it quickly became clear to me that Smith had no intentions to win the fight, damage limitation exercise and snatch his purse on the way out before moving up a division.

Canello is differerent Gravy

Said he would lose. Canelo is the best boxer on the planet for me, he is immense

Made me laugh when some of the pundits were saying he canít take the power or handle the reach of Smith. He bet Kovalev who was an absolute monster and has been in with GGG twice!

Credit to Smith he stayed in their and took the punishment, JG was going to pull him out after the 9th!

This game is about levels and he was a couple below.

Be interesting to see what happens next

Worth a listen to an interview that Trish Morrison had with Dennis Taylor from ringside boxing show. Certainly not her or experts understanding that he died from aids and explains what actually killed him.

…dit - Is there only aids that can cause multi organ failure then?.

Certainly an interesting story of how a 12ft piece of gauze was left insideTommyís chest and is this what is claimed took Tommyís life. Might find it was this the primary cause of multi organ failure.

He also bought a cave to live in as he thought the world was coming to an end some years before his death ! he was still shagging his first wife up until he could no longer walk ! A film is apparently to be made of his life , it will be interesting , he never had a good start to life his dad had him brawling in pubs at 14 for money and brought prostitutes for him after .

Tommy morrison what a star ! He was found to be married to 2 women in 1996 ,Dawn gilbert and dawn freeman i think , he falsified blood tests so he could be allowed to fight , he was hiv positive in a number of his fights !
His then wife Trisha always denied he had aids
He had been in and out of prison for assault, drunk driving etc

Tommy Morrison.

My great friend Dan Hewitt who owns boxing tv received a telephone call from his widow Tommy Trish Morrison in which she tells the story of his life and the untold truth regarding the real reason behind his death.

Anyone know much about Tommyís reported passing?.

Edit - shameless plug but for those interested in a great show with interviews of those up and coming boxers, title holders and the greats of yesteryear then itíd be great if you could give it a watch and maybe even a like and a share or two.

Agree, GGG admitted he was not the same level as real world class opponents. Knocked the ring rust off though. I will be very interested to see what happens next.

BJS might start waving his hands in the air again?

Andrade has to fit in somewhere he has been banging the drum for a while.

I would like to see the above two fight it out

GGG says he will fight anybody, I donít doubt that, at 38 I firmly believe a Canelo rematch next year is the real goal for mr G

Watched the fight, not sure about the change in style though, threw the jab very well but the timing was out at times, landed some brilliant upper cuts. Maybe he has reinvented himself for Canelo 3?

Looked in great shape thought, prefer the old looping bombs and aggression if Iím honest

Great fighter though

Well, I will give credit to Joshua, good performance

Disappointed with Pulev, was hoping he was going to be all over Joshua, when he did get inside, Joshua tied him up well. Brave man though, took some proper shots

Verdict. Joshua did not have his chin tested, canít train that. Better performance but he is a few levels below Fury in the boxing department and that jab will be no good, he will be on the end of one

The good news is, it sounds like the Fury fight is on

Im going for the outside bet Pulev to stop Joshua

but it could just be wishful thinking

and
Agree Marku should have got it was close but in my opinion he did enough with the knock down to take the win I was shocked at the draw decision

Iím paying for it

If Iím honest Gerry, Iím confused looking in. Joshua seems overly confident. I think once he cops for a good one he will go back to type. Canít see him reinventing himself since the Ruiz fight

As I see the fight panning out. Pulev knows what he has to do to win. I have been watching his workouts, lot of bobbing and slipping, he is going to try and get on the inside and let him have it for me and thatís how you beat Joshua. Poor defence, fights in straight lines with fast combinations

Joshua has to get the jab going and get him on the end of it, Itís that simple, if Pulev puts himself in range on the end of it and canít deal with the jab then he loses, he eats the combinations

I will ask anybody a question though, what did they think to the second fight with Ruiz, I thought Joshua was awful myself but he managed to get the job done.

Itís heavyweight boxing so don't blink you could miss it

Itís one man or the other. I will go for Pulev within 8, thatís based on, he has him out of there in 4 or 5, or it drags on a bit. Over that I would expect Joshua

Heís a tough lad that Hall and a good learning exercise for McKenna. Connections wouldnít have expected anything less than what he got. Seen Hall at the kings hall a couple of times and heíll not go short of work for the likes of Stevie who see it as gaining good experience. Got to work a jab a lot more and canít just try to finish the job early. His brother Aaron does indeed look really classy.

Pretty decent is Sam. This lad McKenna whose on now is a fantastic prospect along with his brother Stevie too.

Edit - Nathan was hoping to be out on the 19th December but unfortunately the world title fight he was down for on the undercard didnít materialise. Hoping to now be out at end of jan early feb.

Anybody watch the Pulev vs.Joshua weigh in?

Pulev looks in great shape and is very confident, to be fair I can understand why

Needs to get inside like Ruiz and make it happen, if he sits outside on the end of Joshuaís jab and range he loses for me, otherwise he wins unless he walks onto one

yes I was surprised Pulev is 39 must of had a little paper round ? But has the power for an upset for sure

Maybe the PPV sales are not going well so bit of acting at the weigh in ? or am I being ?

Saw pulev win the super heavyweight at the euro championships in liverpool in 2008 ,He looked very capable but that was 12 years ago , he is now 39 i think ! Most fights on pay per view are £19.99 yet this one is £24.99 !!!! Again trying to hype joshua making him into something he aint as we always do in this country.

Iím tempted to pay for it now ffs

Complete rip off no doubt but Iím looking forward to it. No pressure on Pulev whatsoever. Joshua has got to win or this is another major blip on his record. Very dangerous fight for him. Pulev is the mandatory, should have happened in 2017 but he managed to duck and dive that one. Had to laugh at one of Hearns comments, subconsciously admitted they had cherry picked all his previous fights. No way out now. The real tests are coming!

Either way this result could set up some good fights for next year fight fans

Funny how we see fights differently ?
I thought Spence Jr did well after over a year out following his accident no warm up match straight in ?

I was so pissed off with the 2 commentators on Premier that just would not shut up yapping bullshine nonstop to each other I lasted to round 5 before muting the sound gggrrrrrrrr

I thought Yarde was a mile behind myself. Arthur was superb with the jab all night. I gave Yarde about 4 rounds and they were VERY close. Couldnít break Arthur down. When he did land they were glancing blows until the 12 round slug fest. Great performance from Arthur for me and a deserved win

Anybody watch Errol the boring truth Spence? Garcia was slow to the punch, had to close him down and put it on him like Porter did for me. Credit to Spence though, they always say if you do the basics very well you will go far, he is very good. His left hand has got to be one of the best in the business, his timing is superb

Got to be Crawford vs. Spence next, that should be a cracker

Well I would have not been surprised if it had been a draw but if there was to be a winner then the right man won Yarde did not do enough to win IMO

and Jeff you were dead right Daniel Dubois did have a serious eye injury so was right to stop

Saunders is a classy boxer when he is on his game

Agree with that, similar to Fury, seems to lack motivation at times for me. must be a traveller thing lol, both great boxers though who have had blips in their careers, mental!

Had a look at McGrail, good interview, hope he does well, on seconds out, good channel that

Saunders is a classy boxer when he is on his game. If his style floats your boat, search out footage of Peter McGrail, a local amateur due to turn pro after the Olympics (if it ever happens !!) Known as the Scouse Lomachenko

I think outright punching power could be said about both of them?

I think Saunders is more of a natural middleweight myself. Plus his style is not exactly landing the bombs. Sure they take their toll though!

I think that is Murray done too, stepping into a ring with GGG and having that on the record is impressive in itself for me. Canít say I have seen that many of his fights. Respect though, was on the end of it and took it on the chin last night

Martin is a legend around these parts, and having more than a passing interest in Boxing I have watched a lot of his fights. Very technically gifted boxer with a great heart, but its clear to see that he doesn't have the power to take out opponents at world level.
Last nights tactics were typical of the way he approached most of his fights. Cool and measured, tight defence and then crank up the pressure in the second half of the fight, regularly dropping lesser opposition with his body shots.
Unfortunately age is against him days and he didn't have what was required against a class opponent last night. I expect him to retire now.
Highlight of his career for me was taking the Martinez fight in his back yard and narrowly missing out on points.

Brutal

3 losses on the card Gerry, can certainly bang but is called boxing, see what happens when he steps up a level

Two great champions at that weight, Davis and Lopez, both another level completely for me, superb

As well as Yarde tonight, great fight over the pond. Spence and Garcia, should be a cracker

Anybody watch BJS vs. Murray?

Heroic performance by Murray, totally outboxed by Saunders. Didn't quite get the tactics, high guard, block the shots and counter? or it was just economical for him, who knows?

Great performance by BJS, great movement and hand speed with an array of shots. Possibly the complete or finished article now?

I see he wants Canelo now and not GGG. To be fair, he deserves a shot for me

I think once Callum Smith has had his right rib cage smashed to bits BJS could be his next opponent

Its an interesting one of, what happens next?

Joshua and Pulev soon, see what happens there?

I would like to see Joyce vs. Usyk. Both will be different fighters now, Joyce jab has improved and his guard is by his chin, not near his elbow like their first fight lol. Usyk, great boxer, great movement and sharp, you have to fancy him i suppose, still, it will be the full 12 rounds not an Olympic 5 round punch fest

I canít see him stepping in the ring either with Wilder especially if heís ever in line for a shot at AJ. If not then I guess heís got to go up against Wilder to enhance any further prospects.

I believe Usyk beats Joyce.

Obviously not had the amount of fights as opposed to those who are supposedly thought of as better.

Time will tell.

I canít see Usyk wanting to step in the ring with Wilder

If that happens I would be extremely surprised

I donít think anybody who is up there would want Wilder if the truth be know, extremely dangerous fight for anybody, even Fury!

I think Joyce is Joyce, you see what you get now, a rematch with Usyk will be very interesting, I hope it happens, Joyce seems to want it?

Regarding Usyk, great boxer no doubt but a test for any boxer is a lot of fights against quality opponents with different styles. He will never be that man for me, he is 33, unless he is doing 3 fights a year up to 40 loI, agree though, has a chance of a title, time will tell how he progresses

Lets not forget Lomachenko another one of the purists and pundits favourite, struggled against Salido at the end of his career and got a proper boxing lesson the last time out against Lopez, wonder what the purists think of him now, Lopez was superb!

Simply has not had all the fights like the real top guys for me

How can you claim to be the man when you are say15 and 0 when there are men out there who have done 30, 40, 50 and 60 plus professional fights with minimum loses or draws, completely different level and should not be discussed in the same breath for me, respect to them

In this era he has a chance to shine. Time will tell if he goes down as one of the greats. Me personally, I donít think he will, if Iím wrong I will have enjoyed the show

Agree regards Fury.

Regards Wilder a punchers chance Ďmind you though so have most if they connect properlyí. However in my mind Usyk picks off Wilder as Wilder doesnít have that movement etc in his armoury.

As for Joyce that whilst he did a number on Dubois - Dubois showed very little/no defensive skills I wouldnít exactly say he was great. I learned more about Dubois than Joyce. He did a number on him, fair doís and you canít ask for anything more from him in terms of doing his job.

All I see is an heavyweight division where Fury if given the chance would clean up all of the titles, but because of how it is then Usyk entitles merit in believing he can become a champion and I believe he will.

Regards your last sentence that whilst heís 33 and his strength is his fitness he doesnít need to be a 40 plus fight real hall of famer - just a champion by taking one of those belts that are available, but should he go on to be undisputed champion then all the better for him.

The fights will get harder. For me

Fury, no chance, jab job and powered out
Wilder, no chance, gets sparked, bomb!
Joshua, possibly, very dangerous fight for him
Whyte, possibly, very dangerous fight for him
Joyce, same as, he will be extremely confident going forward of doing a jab job on him now

Your right though, he has fought at heavy and took a few off DC. Time will tell if he is the real deal

To be fair though, I can see why he fancyís it, the pathway is there to be a heavyweight world champion, Joshua. Now he has been exposed I donít think any decent heavyweight would fear him

I will go back to what I said before, who is the biggest name on his record to date, Bellew who took the vacant belt, fought Flores and a WELL over the hill David Haye twice, a well passed his best DC trying to slug him out of there?

When he is the man he will get the respect he deserves for me

He has to get there first, and then hold onto it, then we will know if he is the real deal that everybody is buffing him up to be.

18 fights and zero losses, against who, Bellew and DC at the end of their careers so far...

He is also 33 years old and his strength is his fitness, is he really going to be a 40 plus fight real hall of famer, I donít think so

No disagreement there and agree that DC is well past his best. However, if anything Usyk came out of that fight knowing he stood up to some punches and whilst you donít want to get hit for me he overcame them and itíll give him confidence to go forward in this division.

I think if we put the cards on the table DC is well passed his best. Respect to him, great entertainer and fighter in his time

When somebody puts the pressure on Usyk and starts to land regular then we will see how really good he is

Looking at Styles, I fancy him against Joshua but if Joshua keeps the discipline he could easily spark Usyk for me. You can have all the skill and movement in world but you have to get into the positions to land punches to win fights, to do that you have to put yourself in the zone and take some at times

Canít disagree with any of that but he did get tagged by Chisora and I thought he took it well. Thatís surely the positive he took from that fight.

There should be a few decent heavyweight fights next year, there has to be!

Where Usyk fits into it all Iím not sure myself. Is he the new Holyfield, I donít think so personally. The test will be when he gets hit properly by a near on 20 stone man. Donít think we can take much from the Chisora fight, Chisora was just reckless for me and played to his strengths. Somebody who has a decent jab should give him a run for his money. I look at boxing talent and he is up there but he is dealing with some very powerful men at this level and one punch can end it all and thatís how I see him been beaten

I just think heíll be too smart and quick for Joyce. Would love to see Usyk against AJ too and believe heíll beat him.

Great friend of mine Dan Hewitt was on Joyce last night to stop Dubois in the round he did at 80/1.

If I didnít know any different I would have sworn it was Bernard Hopkinson in there with Tyson, jab then trying to smoother him

Ref could have stepped in and sorted that out but if he had it would have been over in the second round. Had to laugh when Tyson hit him with the left to the body, he was hanging on for dear life after that

Bit of a farce

Respect to iron Mike, looked in great shape for his age

Was close last time. Time will tell

I would like to see him fight Joshua, possibly Whyte. JJ is at his prime, he wonít get much better for me now. Big fights

Thereís a question for me, How good is Usyk. I wasnít too convinced myself when he fought Bellew, yes he got the win but Bellew without being disrespectful was not exactly a world class champion with a track record

He is probably the favourite on youth, record and KOs to date.

If Joyce is to win he has to make Dubious feel the power early on, first or second round and make him cautious closing him down trying to land the big shot for me. Time will tell though

Real 50 / 50 for me. JJ is no mug and I believe this is the first real real test for DD. If Joyce can get the jab working and stopping him getting into positions to throw he could be in for a long punishing night

Has the potential to be a very good fight for me Gerry. I watched the press conference and a gloves off type program, I get the feeling that both men fancy it and they both seem confident Respect to them both, both unbeaten and they could have probably found a few easier fights if they wanted to. Still, if you think your the best you should fight the best. Somebodyís ď0Ē has got to go

Best I have seen him fight by a long way, needs to get the rounds in, did 10 last night, I always questioned if he could do the full 12 since he carries a bit of muscle but he looks good for it for me.

Formella was a tough opponent but it does make me wonder how strong Beninís punches really are, a lot of them are short and fast but the big winging ones look dangerous but did not seem to have the effect for me. Thought the left that he threw to the body was superb but again, didnít seem to have the effect I would have expected. You would have to ask Formella

Good footwork and changed the angles well. Like his rope work though, brilliant, got that from his dad

TBH after his rematch against the French Kicboxer I though he was near his level. Guess I was wrong, he seems to have come on leaps and bounds, respect.

Wardley looks like a good prospect, decent boxer with a decent shot. It will be interesting to see how he progresses

Quite a few decent fights on the run up to Christmas fight fans

Conor Benn tomorrow, to be fair he does not excite me

Daniel Jacobs next week, great fighter. Joyce and Dubious too

Mighty Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jnr. Not sure what thatís all about but I hope nobody gets seriously hurt

Billy J Saunders vs. Martin Murray, strange one for me?

Spence vs. Garcia, hopefully he has to face Crawford soon

Luke Campbell

Yarde

Sam Eggington, usually a good scrap

Joshua vs. Pulev

And Canelo vs. Smith

I expect Dubious on youth alone and his aggressive style. I like JJ, slow starter at professional but has a decent record at amateur, did well against Usyk for me too

Not sure on this one, test for both fighters, all depends how good Joyce is with the jab and if he can keep Dubious off him

Dubious is powerful but reckless at times for me. I will be interested to see how he performs against a good boxer if Joyceís jab is on form or ultimately Tyson Fury. I think a lesson is on the cards somewhere along the line for me

Agree, was a piss poor decision that

If Brook had have lasted I reckon Crawfords right eye would have been closed in the next two or three rounds too, hit him with some stinging right jabs with the weight behind them too

Real shame for me. Brook looked in fantastic shape and won all the rounds for me until the shot landed, stunned him, said afterwards he didnít see it

Surprised me though, still a class act but not in the top few anymore.

Crawford vs. Spence, that has got to happen now

And he was calling Manny Pac out

I was impressed with Harper this time out, thought she was not so convincing last time

Katie Taylor, unbelievable, took womanís boxing to a completely different level, saw her on the pads before the fight, hand speed was unbelievable

Just watched the Kell Brook face off, could be a good fight that, seasoned pro Kell but I feel he has a mountain to climb here. Cmon Kell Brook

Can Brook shock Crawford?

Canít believe itís going ahead. Massive Kell Brook fan myself. 5 years past his peak. Crawford, for me, has got to be one of the best boxers on the planet at the moment

Crawford, Spence, thatís what I want to see
