Poor performance from CBS that, tried to walk him down and got his head boxed off. Thought the last couple of body shots looked to hurt the Pole, took the wind straight out of his sales, then doesnít come back out for the next round, can only think his ribs have gone

Thought the Garcia fight was poor, danced around the ring avoiding contact for most of the fight Garcia. Duarte was poor, out of range then stood in front of him, couldnít plant his feet to throw either. Bit of a lucky punch for Garcia for me after dancing around for so long, but he landed. Duarte wants to watch GGG and how he cuts the ring off, that was missing. Canít say Iím a big fan of Garcia, can give it but canít take it, reminds me a lot of Khan, gangly with fast hands. Fight people like that and they have to put it on them with multiple punches and Duarte didnít, or you have to be super slick on the counter like Tank. I think Duarte will have learned a lot from that though.

Iím sure Garcia will be pleased too, since DH and BH weíre tipping him to lose!

Some performance from Gill that!

Some performance that from KT

Managed to keep CC at range better this time around, super sharp hand speed and good movement, didnít get sucked in to CC fight like last time. What a fight though that, womanís boxing is certainly on the map now

And one judge gives it a draw and the other KT by 98 - 92 WTF

Congratulations to Katie Taylor
For weeks Katie Taylor said that her rematch with Chantelle Cameron would be a completely different fight and the Irish icon was true to her word, scoring a hard-fought 10-round majority decision over Chantelle Cameron to claim the undisputed super lightweight championship. Official scores were 98-92, 96-94, and 95-95.

Well Katie Taylors last throw of the dice tonight, has her work cut out for me, she had better be on top form plus some because CC gave her a once over last time, too strong for me. Canít see how KT is going to do it if Iím honest other than box, move and be super slick, she has the faster hands, but that is energy zapping, last time she got drawn into CC game, can not afford to be in a tear up. If itís anything like the first fight it should be great watch because they can both box

Nice one mate.

He won by quite a margin and it may well be as that margin could stand him in good stead to go one better than what Denzel managed.

We never had any doubt that he could pull it off and the plan worked to a treat.

I love the lad and before the title fight said he would be paying me a visit with the belt should he pull it off.

I havenít seen the bare knuckle mate but was down at Fenton manor last week watching the show put on by bad to the bone.

Go oarnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn Nathan.

Above all else hope that all boxers come home safely.

Edit - The hard graft done is in the bank. Stay disciplined, stick to the plan and go get the best return possible.

Boy, is this lad going let all his emotions out should he become British champion. Not only for himself but for his father Joe who sadly took his own life shortly before Nathan becoming midlands area champion.

Everything well and truly crossed.

Good luck Nathan.

Sounds about right to me. Fury hit FN with some good shots, just didnít phase him, thatís when you know you are in for a hard night

Look at what he did with Otto Wallin, well off the game that night and that cut could have finished him!

To be fair, he openly admits he is mentally Iíll which is sad really but I guess thatís why he is up and down, Iím guessing there may have been a loss of focus for FN thinking he would walk it. He could have and should have jabbed his head off!

Well after watching the fight a few times now
Im going to be unpopular
as I think it was very very close but Fury just nicked it with the help of his point scoring Jabs thru out the fight after the Knockdown

EDIT
It turns out that despite Ngannou's best efforts, Fury managed to land more punches over the ten rounds.
According to CompuBox, the Salford-born star managed to land 71 of the 223 jabs he threw at his opponent.
On the other hand, Ngannou threw 231 punches but only made contact with 59 of his attempts.
Fury also reigned supreme in six of the ten rounds, while Ngannou had his time to shine in the third, fourth and eight rounds

Agree. I think the USYK fight will happen around May

To be fair it is what he needed, he wonít play about next time, typical gypsy showboating and gloating, out on the piss the night before too

Donít judge the Usyk fight on that it will be totally different to fighting FN!!!

FN deserves another shot too after a performance like that, although I would expect a different outcome

Who is the fat sausage now?!

The whole thing was a farce. Two hours from the Wardley fight to the Fury fight. What a bore that was after an entertaining undercard. The fight itself was much better than expected and Fury lost it, but the WBC couldnít have that (despite the belt not being up for grabs) and the judges obliged.

Fair play to Ngannou, he was solid and took the injustice on the chin, he obviously knew it was coming.

I very much doubt we will ever see Fury in the ring fighting Usyk. He would rather keep the unbeaten ĎGypsy Kingí myth alive as, for my money, Usyk outsmarts and outboxes him every time.

My guess is he retires again, then comes back (again) for another big money fight against a non boxer or two.

Without the Usyk fight can we really say that Fury was the generational great that we were lead to believe? Who does he really have on his record apart from Wilder and a 39 year old Klitschko? And while the Wilder fights were entertaining can we really say that beating him over 3 fights was such a feat?

Yes, obviously Wilder has freakish power in his fists, but how many tests has he really had other than Fury? He sat on the WBC belt fighting very beatable challengers twice a year for 5 years. Smart, but not exactly the stuff of greatness.

FN is a striker, unbelievable power, 17 stone of pure muscle, and knows how to train for a fight, think he opened a lot of peoples eyes.

Very, very powerful man. As much as I like Fury he is a boxer who carries a lot of weight but he does not have the dynamite for the power to weight ratio and the devastating one shot power, aka Wilder lol

I've just watched it this morning and Francis did well for a "nobody" didn't he?! I reckon he might have a decent future in the ring. This was less of a mockery to boxing than some of the recent fights, and as long as people keep buying the ppv then they will keep happening. I'd like to see ngannou in with old windmill one day, it would be fun while it lasted

Basically he got the game plan all wrong, expected FN to come out swinging to he could counter him. FN brilliantly disciplined, wait for Fury to throw then tried to counter, who has the biggest hammer

Heavyweightís, takes one shot, fury was put down in the 3rd, landed but off balance and FN caught him on the side of the head. Scrappy really and for the first time ever Fury looked clueless until he strung a few jabs together

Canít knock FN, machine, rock solid, full of muscle and would happily stand toe to toe with anybody

They reckon Fury was out the night before

Fight like this do make a mockery out of boxing but that fight probably shocked us all, takes one single punch. As for the Furyís I am inclined to think as mentioned below, you can take the gypsy from the camp but you canít take the camp from the gypsys, mongs, John Fury what a cock, he fancies a slice of the cake with the real Tyson

Shouldnít be allowed to fight for the bets either unless they have progressed down the boxing route

I would like to see AJ fight Wilder and I agree, both have the power, Wilder has the success rate though.I donít think anybody likes Wilder except for a few yanks!

Agree, Ortiz could have won both of those, far superior boxer, just succumbed to the bomb

Fury exposed Wilder as a one trick pony, aggressive fighter with a wide stance looking to land the bomb, put him on the back foot, clueless. Master class from Fury in all 3 fights, first one boxed him on the back foot, second one battered him on the front foot, third one bit of everything. For a big guy his movement, and skills are incredible!

Usyk is a great boxer no doubt but you could argue his record is not the greatest, Bellew etc who I canít say I am a big boxing fan off. Still, you can only fight who is around at the time

End of the day we are being super critical because any of the above could wipe us out with the wind off their gloves

Ive not called usyk a great Chris. Not sure where you keep plucking that from? But he has 3 belts. That makes him a heavyweight champion! The dubois fight was one where some saw it as a low blow, others saw it as a fair shot and dubois was robbed. At the end of the day what happened, happened and you can only go with the refs decision. Personally it looked like a clean shot to me. But would usyk have got up within the 10 count? Who knows. He didn't need to because the ref gave him time for a low blow.
Agreed wilder is a nasty ******* , can't stand the man and hope he gets beat every time he sets foot in the ring . He had a few challengers for it too?10 of them And he's been on his way to losing a few fights along the way and got out of jail with a big right hand. Even that Artur spika was beating him until he got sloppy , and the over the hill chisora absolutely destroyed spika with ease . Ortiz was winning both fights until the right landed too even though he's god knows what age. His record has great numbers I'll agree, but names on that record? Not so much. I agree aj doesn't stand much of a chance, especially these days as it's pretty clear he's mentally weakened . But wilder can be hurt too so if aj could land first anything is possible. Not that I think he would because of being gun shy these days. Can't see either of them having much left in them tbh, 2 or 3 fights each maybe .

And yet he holds 3 of the 4 belts

And Dubious was SO close, are you going to say that he would be a great if he won too lol. Usyk ainít put them together.The same collection Joshua put together before he was exposed again and again and again. Like it or not the belt was the WBC who nobody would challenge for whilst Joshua was doing the sweepings up. Wilder would absolutely well and truly obliterate him, the man ainít no defence!

And then a man who is mentally Iíll, 10 stone overweight with a drugs and alcohol problem as a result, does major draining weight loss and comes along and beats the WBC dosser 3 times, now that is something that NO former heavyweight champ has ever done and probably will not again, that alone is pretty, unbelievable, ****ing amazing!!!

I think Wilder is the most dangerous fight for Usyk, and he wonít take it

Wilder is a nasty MF, but as somebody once said, you donít go in there to tickle each other lol

But you said he wasn't a true heavyweight champion ? And yet he holds 3 of the 4 belts? And yet old windmill isn't a champion anymore either? Granted he can't be called a heavyweight great and at his age it's doubtful he has got enough time left to ever be called one. Even if he beats fury and wilder . Don't think he's got much chance against fury Tbh, but wilder I'm not so sure. That one could go either way for me.
In reality, who has wilder fought? He's got a massively padded rťsumť himself , other than fury he's got nobody. And the man is an utter tool. Saying he won't retire happy if he doesn't have a body on his record. He can't box for toffee either, all he has is that power, hence he came up short against someone with actual skills ,even though he made every excuse under the sun he simply wasn't the better fighter . Not even close

Great boxer USYK no doubt, athlete. not a true heavyweight and who has he fought at heavy so far, a well over the hill Chisora, Joshua who canít box for toffee, body builder, and he lost or should have against Dubios so that makes him a great does it, wins over those 3 lol, come back when he has clocked up over 20 then we can talk about greatness

And all of those 3 are not even close to Fury or even Wilder.

I donít dislike Joshua, great role model, but I knew from the start he was not the one that everybody was making him out to be, his fights were cherry picked over the years, he is a very powerful lad but lacks boxing skills, and movement, massively

And as for Holyfield he was a proper boxer, athlete, and warrior and you canít compare USYK with him, he has been in wars, look at the fights he had!

Take him out of the equation and it only leaves Wilder as a true heavyweight champion for me. Far too much politics in boxing, the belts should dictate who fights who next.

and that dikhead father of his is a disgrace an embarrassment

Made me laugh, he was offering Mike Tyson out, letís have a straightener lol. I am quite confident in saying that MT (who truly is one of the greatest of all time) could put him out in 3 if he wanted to and thatís if he didnít catch him right with the first two

Right from day one when everyone was slagging Tyson Fury off
I could see he was trying to sell himself and could see he had a boxing brain and became a BIG fan
he can box either hand and switch seamlessly very gifted boxer

but recently I have gone right off him its not about the sport its simply greed and money he could easily have made the usk fight but was just to greedy

and that dikhead father of his is a disgrace an embarrassment

Canít knock him for what has gone before but to then take the proverbial out of such a great sport I find galling in all honesty. Should be about becoming undisputed and been one of the best in your era. To then fight someone thatís never boxed before solely for the money (heís made as it is) really does take the 9155 out of the sport and out of himself really. Not for me.

I don't think you can put Tyson in the same category as his brother. Tyson is the heavyweight champion of the world, twice now. He earned those belts. He's gone to the reigning champions back yard and taken them from them both times, he's gone into the ring with the biggest knock out artist the division has ever seen and beaten him multiple times. . His brother is all show and no go, he's not good enough to win belts at even European level so is taking the money option. This is just a warm up for usyk, nothing more than that. But one he is being paid an awfully large sum of money for, and it's his job after all. If anyone was offered a huge sum of money to do their usual job, but made a lot easier ,they'd take it.

Another strange one, the man seriously is mental

Why he would want to fight FN is beyond me, great payout but that man can seriously bang, still Fury is slick enough, says he is going to go toe to toe with him lol, I believe him, and that is dangerous

Well, the main concern for me is where JC goes next, who are the fights. I wish he would be another British world champion but he has some learning to do for me as he steps up. last night he will have learned a lot though. Thought Linares was very good with the footwork, also managed to get his left outside JC right foot for most of the night which in turn, JC struggled to land any really powerful shots, swinging across his body, very wide stance too which didnít help either. Good news he got the decision but I wouldnít say it was as convincing as I would have like to have seen, he needs to get some fights in, but hey ho, up JC

Don't think it's much of a test Tbh, Linares is so far past his best it's a bit of a joke imo. Lost his last 3 and is just a name for a jacks record. Should be a very comfortable win, probably on points but possibly late stoppage

I thought the undercard was brilliant had some cracking fights thought it was a shame Terri Harper got a draw think she had edged it and done enough for the win and Josh was doing so well until he got stopped and that was a fair stoppage IMO

Was a good scrap and a clash of styles, knew they would both go for wit though

Have to feel for Warrington because I think he had done the better work and was edging it for me until he was caught. Question the stoppage though, should have let it go one more for me. Think there will be a rematch?

Well that was probably the weirdest night of boxing ive ever been to.
Moran absolutely blitzed . Azim put under alot of pressure , Dave allen never threw any punches while frazer clarke tried to wipe out his meat and two veg ! And then Liam smith who looked like he had had his voice box and windpipe removed. He never got started hardly threw anything and was struggling to breath properly from round 2 . He never spoke in his corner and never responded to what was being said to him .His ankles are always like that he over extends and has such a wide stance . Never seen him throw so few punches and absolutely no power in them .He was rubbing his eyes constantly like his vision was impaired maybe from the punch that floored him . Eubank was so much better than the first fight as smith was so much worse !

Liam Smith just didnít look at the races, flat? Eubank just tried to power him out, he had no choice.

Azim copped for some there, coming up the levels now, he got hit with some good shots too

He is calling for something to be done about it,I doubt anything will happen.I think he's been robbed but it's not the first time it's happened and won't be the last

Look how high is belt his for starters

It was a cracking shot. He felt real HEAVYWEIGHT power

You have to feel for DD, could have been a 3 belt world champ, that doesnít come around too often

To me he felt it, didnít fancy a follow up and conned the ref.

As for Dubois I thought he was getting better from round 6 and then for someone so young to then look like heíd all of a sudden hit a brick wall doesnít bode well for me.

Played the ref there Usyk, that was game over.

Dubious canít take a punch either, gets rocked far to easily, donít get me wrong it was a stiff jab and he was stepping in with it but that should not have put him down, think he was exhausted

Based on that Tyson Fury whoops Usyk arse, KO

Was praying Dubois got through that 9th then it could have set me up nicely for the 10th.

Had that not have been given as a low blow I just donít see Usyk staying down and giving his belts up.

No way was that shot low.

DD was tired, made to fight at pace, think we all new who we fancied for the later rounds. Need to see the shot again because it looked on the belt to me and if that were the case DD was robbed

Dubois has a good chin problem with him is he cuts easily. I will say this if dubois catches him usyk will know about it . Im hoping he does usyk is not a heavyweight and to me should,nt hold those belts.

Similar to me.

Could turn out to be interesting, for me Dubious has to have him out of there within 6 or severely ruffed up for an 8th round KO or itís Usyk for me

Dubious chin is questionable though, great big lump, the only real chance he has is to smash him all around the ropes early on, cannot see him doing a jab job on Usyk, too slick. Dubious has the power though and one on the button could do it. Great opportunity for the Brit

Looking at the weigh in, DD looks in good shape, lightest he been too, around 5kg in it, Iíve see Usyk look leaner. Maybe he is expecting a wrestling match lol

I bet Fury is watching with interest

FIGHT NIGHT ! tonight
Oleksandr Usyk vs. Daniel Dubois ring walk around 22.00 UK time could be explosive we all know Dubois has tremendous punching power and he has got boxing skills still learning though IMO but Usyk is a very good boxer and has to hope he can prevent him from landing the big bombs
I am hoping Dubois shocks everyone shows skills and sparks him

Well I wonder if AJs KO win will restore his confidence ?
He was landing a good solid left jab regularly but ???
he never followed it with getting closer and throwing the right ?? he seemed scared of getting a counter I heard him talking to his corner about the right in the round before he landed it I have never noticed a fighter take so much notice of the corner its like he needs to be told what to do ?

And there you go again with the name calling.... It's funny how nobody else seems to need to "emphasize" a point anywhere near as often as you do. I merely made a point of you calling somebody a "nobody " was a bit off, and as usual you throw your toys out of your pram. Let's be honest,plenty of people have called you out for your capital letter outbursts haven't they?

And there are many a boxing fan who is the same. I agree with you about the purse splits etc, but it will never happen. The problem with boxing is there are too many governing bodies and too many belts, and that's what will stop the purse split rules happening

He IS a nobody in the sport of boxing

if he wasnt about to fight fury no boxing fan would ever hear his name ! and yes Fury hasnt got a mandatory at the moment but he is sticking 2 fingers up to all the fight fans that want to see him make the fights that they want to see
Mauricio Sulaiman has stated the WBC may give him one soon but Im not holding my breath

just my personal opinion but I would love there to be rules about purse splits so stop all the greed

of course it would never happen BUT
60/40 to the winner ( they are both putting their lives on the line regardless ) would in my eyes be the best/fairest and if it was set in stone just think how much easier matches could be made

It's a bit unfair to call Francis nganou a nobody Gerry, he's right at the top of the MMA game. Yeah he's not a boxer, but he's not a nobody either. He has as much chance as any of the big lads ,he can bang with the best of them and it only takes one.. no, I don't think he will land it, but I didn't think wilder would land on fury either and he did a few times. Talk of fury being stripped is a bit daft when he doesn't actually have a mandatory at the moment.

The gypsy king is out for the $. Canít blame him really. FN is going to get his ears boxed off

I agree though, the best should fight the best and the belts should make that happen. The sad side, boxing politics rules

He will fight Usyk

As for Usyk vs. Dubious, talking about farces. Still if DD lands he could easily spark Usyk, he needs to go in there, walk him straight down, put it on him, put that son of a bitch out, lol, out of there in 4 otherwise itís a one way contest, not that I care much anyway

For DD iits probably a chance he would never have otherwise

I have always been a fan of tyson fury right
from his early days when he was trying to do the Cassius Clay bit and get noticed and famous I thought he was a boxer with a boxing brain could fight with either hand and switch so easily but now !
I think he should be stripped as he is the one that through sheer greed has avoided the fights he should of made
and my biggest hope would be if this Francis Ngannou nobody lands a big bomb and sparks him

Great performance from TC, superb

Spence was exposed by the champ but respect, he gave it his all until the stoppage. Thought the double jab was working well for him, unsettling Crawfords footwork but he stopped throwing it. Should have thrown the liver shot more often but Crawford was superb with the elbow blocks and counter too.

This game is about levels and Crawford showed he is one up against the rest, what a fighter ✊

He looks supremely confident, I think itís just showboating, Iím sure there are some bad intentions behind those smiles lol. I bet most peoples money is on Crawford, he is superb thatís for sure!

Never been a big Spence fan but I have to say he is a solid boxer with one of the best left hands in the business, times it beautifully too, one of those could put Terrance away so it could lead to a very interesting fight for me

It was. Mcgregor just wasn,t allowed to fight the way he normally does solid jab at range then moving in for body shots robles set out from first bell with fast hands smothering him an excellent fight not a second without a punch thrown . Those mexicans are tough nuts the pair of them were fantastic.

Not seen it as yet.

Regarding Josh Kelly, he was the next big thing when he came on the scene and I like the lad but I always question that low hand show boating style, you have to be super slick and super quick to make that work consistently, people have had his number quite a few times now, he needs to change his defence and style but I canít see that happening. As already mentioned, due to the style lacks the power too. Only one real show boater who carried power for me and that was Naz, he could punch!

I far and away prefered

watching some BRILLIANT boxing in the rematch between Alycia Baumgardner vs. Christina Linardatou
I thought the boxing skills by someone who is still learning to be exceptional
checkout youtube Im sure it will be on there somewhere Alycia Baumgardner has got a great future the women's boxing like the womens football is really worth watching

Marhall got dragged into a brawl thats the worst i have seen her coming in low never used her height and reach advantage but did enough to win .You are right shields a different level. Shields was to my left and never stopped shouting irritating fookin voice !! Jonas won well cant wait to see Whittaker sparked out.

Ugly fight that with the ugly Yank who made it ugly

Thought SM got the win but she struggled there, could have dominated that fight with the jab, and a bit of slick movement, wild winging shots from both. Yank blowing out of her arse in the first lol!

Please tune in if one is able to boxing tv (Dan Hewitt) as tonight at 8.30pm (YouTube and Facebook) speaks with top referee Tony Weeks. Other guests include Robbie Brown, Will Storey, Stefan Hanks and the one I find fascinating and inspirational is Scottish boxer Christianne Fahey who if able to watch will see for themselves as hopefully she provides us with an insight into her life outside of boxing which in all honesty having met her up in Scotland a few weeks ago is truly an amazing young woman and an inspiration to many many others.

As a fan it is very disappointing but when you have the likes of Hearn lining his pocket it all becomes political, not to mention the Don King era!

The belts should make them take mandatory fights, if not strip them and arrange a match with the two other best contenders. Its the boxers and the promotion team who is lining up who will fight who! If it has to happen then they sort it out or lose the belts

Lot of corruption in the sport

Regarding Tyson Fury, heart of a lion and brain of a mouse. Iím pretty sure itís all a psychological ploy with him. I think the fight with Uysk will happen when he has wound him up enough

That is the problem but to be honest I have no interest in the heavyweight division at the moment.Fighters coming out on social media spouting absolute drivvle and making demands Its not like they're not making life changing amounts of money,surely wanting to be the best by beating the best is the motivation for a true champion

For as long as the interest/money is there then the fighters and promoters will lap it up and continue to pull in the big bucks. So much for wanting to be the undisputed best in your weight division which in all honesty is a farce for not wanting to be considered the best.

Taylor was very poor, donít know if it was ring rust or just on the downhill slope sadly, looked lethargic, fight had a low tempo and he was just trying to bomb Lopez all the time, should have put him on the jab, thatís his weapon

Credit to Lopez, he was up for it, canít see where he goes after this if Iím honest

Respect to Sam, tough lad and if you were in a fight with him you are in a fight! I always saw him as a top class journey man but he gets better and better. Pigford, what a tit, thought he would walk it, had to laugh. Low lead hand which soon became glued to his head before he got finished. What a performance from SE, superb!

Lara Woods 2 with Lara having to vacate his World Title I'm sure it will make him even more determined to win tonight
Also the extra weight could really be a telling factor

Yes looking at the boxing stats apparently Loma threw and landed more punches and more power shots general feeling seems a close fight but loma should of won by 2 rounds??
I listened to Katie Taylor and sounds like she lost and was great scoring by the Judges so that's a bigwin for boxing

It was close but Lomo robbed for me

Haney has no power! Those body shots werenít really scoring either, zero damage or effect. Does not like being hit either, every time Lomo landed a solid shot he look scared ****less!

Haney will struggle to continually make that weight for me too

Canít make my mind up who will win this, if Haney does then that is some statement for me, and could be a champ for a long time, youth and all, great counter puncher and pretty slick with that low lead hand, there was only one Floyd Mayweather though lol. One thing for sure he ainít fighting Kambosos tomorrow night and Loma is a great boxer, potential to be fight of the year for me and also a one sided affair too if Lomo has his number

Hopefully sets up a fight with Bivol, saying that Canelo is wanting that in September listening to his post fight interview with Ryder

Buatsi performance was very disappointing ok he won but looked very average

I didnít see it but I keep an eye on him, he looks a class act but I was wondering how long it was before he reached his level or was it just a one off, will have to have a look. Thereís quite a few fighters around that weight now that produce some very good fights imho. TBH, canít see anybody coming close to Bivol for a while, solid boxing skills.

Buatsi vs. Yarde could be a UK cracker

100% agree about Lauren Price hard as nails also love the way she's always boxing on the front foot 🥊
As for Buatsi he looked proper ring rusty needs to up his game massively and fight real soon not leave it another 12 months

Buatsi performance was very disappointing ok he won but looked very average

and Canelo could not put on the knockout show that was expected

John Ryder was amazing losing on points took everything Canelo had and forced him to the distance losing on points
but seemed to me Canelo had lost a lot of his head movement and on that showing I cant see him beating Bivol ?
who he called out after the fight
saying he wants the rematch with Dmitry Bivol as his next fight in September. Canelo says he wants the Bivol bout at 175 lbs under the same terms as the last time they fought in May 2022
just cant see him beating Bivol ?

yes I agree it would be amazing

but this match is in front of his passionate fans to put on a show after his recent defeat
and its expected to be a a one sided fight and ESPECIALLY as its his first
fight in his home country for the first time in more than 11 years !!! Mexican pride and all that

BUT this is boxing and unlikely things can and do happen sometimes and OMG wouldnt it be great if the upset happened

Wouldnít it be brilliant if Ryder went out and beat him in his own back yard though? Unlikely I know, but JR is a tough man, you never know.

Masterclass from Davis

You donít run a world class counter puncher down in the second as Garcia tried to do, you will get hit and he did. Tank touched Garciaís right all night and took the jab away, Garcia couldnít and didnít throw the right or he would have got countered. 6-8 rounds he said, over in 7. Superb

Agree about the rematch. The old iron Mike analogy, everybody has a game plan until you get hit in the face. That was Garcia after the second

Tank just too powerful for Garcia
Has soon as Tank floored Garcia in the 2nd round it was only a matter of time before Tank stopped Garcia
Definitely no need for a rematch Garcia ain't in Tanks league

Super fight in the States, Tank vs. Garcia, set up to be an absolute cracker

Watched Garcia training and he looks super sharp, lot of slipping too, he will need to be at his absolute best to get through this, Tank needs one shot though

He has called out both Usyk and Fury

Watched the post fight interviews, Joyce is better avoiding that rematch!

It will be interesting to see who Zhang can get next. A Chinese heavyweight bout in China, imagine that. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Exactly

Joyce looks like heís been run over by a bus, closed that eye in 3

Said it was a dangerous fight beforehand, should never have taken that

Zhang, powerful man, touched Joyce jab early on and blew him away

Poor movement from Joyce as the juggernaut gets derailed, said it to myself many times as Iíve watched him, great jab and can take a punch but very static and easy to hit

Could this set up Joyce and Joshua?

Who wants Zhang

It would be an interesting fight, can take a punch Joyce and has a far superior jab to Joshua for me and it think thatís his strengths. Did a proper job on DD with it

Set up to be a good fight, brutal, both are tough men, letís hope nobody get seriously hurt

Based on Joshuaís last outing I would put my money on Joyce to jab his head off!

Yes against a really good Southpaw
Joe will be tested thats for sure but with his incredible granite chin he has a chance to really make a statement if he can stop Zhang

Fury toys with him and Wilder rinses him too.

Agree with you in that I hope Joyce gets his big shot at it as he not only deserves it but is a threat.

the judges' scorecards with two cards scoring the fight 117-111 and the other 118-111 all in favour of Joshua
he clearly won the fight but he again seemed gun shy and lacked any real aggression ? its laughable he could get anywhere with the top men
I really hope Joe Joyce gets his chance at a big money fight fuk knows what Frank Warren is playing at and maybe Eddie Hearn is scared of big Joe and what he could do to his fighters ? ?

Not sure how Bellow had his scorecard of the first (think it was) 8 rounds to Joshua.

Poor performance from Joshua and nothing new in there either.
