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.

Hes a decent boxer , he has a lot of faults and at his age he aint gonna get alot better but good luck to him, when you look at just the british boxers at his weight he will struggle .

Still think his defence needs work he could of very easily been knocked out the way he kept dropping his hands but its a win

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.

Totally agree about fans , The atmosphere a crowd gives is something you cant explain unless you have been in that enviroment , be it any sport, even if they are not your fans.

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
