Hehe, Andre knows a home fix when he sees it.

What fight do you wish to see next?
I have to go along with the son of God. Joshua vs Fury would be number one heavyweight fight. I want to see Fury vs Wilder again.

Looking to see Lomachenko dazzle this weekend. Canelo back in action as well.

Frampton vs Warrington is the one I'm most looking forward to.

Was finally able to watch the fight. Wilder won first two rounds then was owned minus the round he got knockdowns. Even in those rounds Fury rallied back and did damage. I don't know exact scoring rules but does a quick knock down automatically make a round 10-8 even if you spend the rest of the 3 minutes getting outboxed?

Not really shocked two judges saw it that differently because that happens with decisions I wish the people claiming the count was longer than 10 seconds would stop that though. No refs 10 count is ever exactly 10 seconds and they almost always start late for one reason or another. If Fury did have his wits to him he waits until the refs counts to 8 or 9 is not relying on some internal Omega stopwatch. Try to get up too early and you wobbly leg back down and the ref probably calls it right then. Or you grab for your mouthpiece and stumble around. Fury made the smart move and waited it out, and I think would have been able to get up earlier if he had to. but a rare entertaining match either way. Typically booking and promotions get in the way of these types of fights happening

Kell Brook might be Finnish. Can be hard to say when you consider the opponent.

He does look like he has lost something. Definitely.

Enjoyable fight with Lomachenko and Pedraza. Loma didn't look as tremendous as usual. One of those tough fights that still has a clear winner. He did manage to become the one in round 11.

Significant as I want to see Gervonta fight Lomachenko, and this was a common high quality opponent by which to judge the two. Gervonta Davis needs to be paid attention to.

Gervonta a bit too ltweight for Lomachenko.

Can you imagine that Rocky Balboa Fielding is going to flatten Cinnamon Rolls in front of 80,000 screaming fans at MSG this weekend!?






Well, neither can I.

After having caught up on some clips of mister Rocky, I'm compelled to believe Ginger will have a Field day. You would think that the most damning clip is watching him get sparked by Callum Smith within a round. But no, his knockout win highlight reels tell even more. With those slow and wide punches, he's going to be eating cinnamon (counter) sledgehammers a rate that is not recommended by the FDA. Only mitigating factor is the eye-catching difference in stature – but then again, surely the 10-pound rehydration clause mollifies that.

I'm looking forward to watching Canelo. The fights with Golovkin raised his drawing power to me. Might not have been interested in this fight before.

Can Rocky shock the world?: Sure.

Captain Carl obvious

It would be unbelievable and given his name, it really would be a Rocky story.

Well, Joseph Parker made his return yesterday, trying to build his way back up after back-to-back losses, this time fighting a lower level of opposition in Alexander Flores. Ahead of the fight Parker, probably correctly, had waxed about how he'll need to be less of a nice guy in the ring and promised he'll go to the nuts if he has to. Well, he certainly delivered on that, apparently low-blowing Flores a couple of times en route to a brutish third round knockout.

Rocky is going down in every round. Just like a Rocky story in the end.

Really ripping the arse out of the PPV again. 2 on next week. I've made my choice with Frampton vs Warrington. Not that it is much choice because there is no world that has me pay for Chisora vs Whyte.

Damn, what a start. Warrington looking to take Frampton out.

Frampton in all kinds of trouble.

I do hate commentators apologizing for corner men cursing. Come on. Boys will be boys.

I'd have it 4-1 Warrington

Warrington has impressed.

Unanimous decision win for Warrington. Cap doffed to him. Just kept throwing. Beat up Frampton.

Brutal knockout from that infamous left hook of Whyte. Only Parker gets up from that u know, maybe Fury lol.

Valiant effort from Chisora, marching forward with determination the whole bout. Interestingly enough, he was up 95-94 on two cards at the time of the stoppage. Third was 94-95. Was headed for a tight one. I didn't score it but seems somewhat surprising to me.

Considering he got 2 points deducted, I don’t know how 2 judges had him up.

The last round, where the second point deduction happened, didn't finish and therefore isn't counted. Going into the 12th, Chisora would've been down on all cards. But I agree, still thought they would've had Whyte ahead.

Very interesting interview with AJ post fight. Looks like he got a bit angry. First time he spoke his mind...

In a year marred by some controversial decisions, I heard Jermall Charlo got a questionable win yesterday to further the trend. Watching it back now, I do indeed think Korobov was outboxing him for large stretches, landing some sweet straight lefts. 119-109 is another silly card for the tally.

Smaller twin brother Jermell got his first loss on the same night as well.

Don't think the much hyped Jermall has what it takes against 3G, Canelo, Jacobs or even an in-form BJS. But we'll see – he's athletic and has an explosive right hand at least.

I see Fury was kept out of the conversation. AJ wants no part of that sweet science. :p



I do like this side of AJ.
Yh people are saying AJ is finally getting exposed behind all the media trained bs.
But I like the way he handled this situation. He’s world heavy weight champion, about time he had the bit between his teeth.

Miller has been groomed by matchroom precisely for this job as sacrficial lamb.

Hasn't fought anyone with a pulse, and I don't see anything to make me think AJ won't wipe the floor with him.
Yeah, all about going over there and getting it done. Not like Wilder has fought many world class operators in his local gym. AJ getting to fight in the garden on his USA debut. Cool stuff.

There is probably a better chance of

billion dolla Crolla!!

capitalising on Lomachenko's weaknesses. :notworthy:

Tbh I don’t mind this fight one bit.
The press conferences will be crazy.
Then I’m gonna be looking forward to baby Miller getting slapped around the ring. Too much trash talk for a guy whose done f**k all

Anyone for Eubank Jr. vs DeGale?

Not exactly elite world class level, but should be a decent scrap and a pretty 50/50 affair from the looks of things.

DeGale obviously the more skilled operator, but on the way out and looked a bit drained, so my prediction is that he has early success but flames out and Eubank takes over the latter part of the fight with his nonpareil conditioning, winning by close points or maybe even late stoppage if DeGale really gasses.

They should sue them for false advertising-like either of them are going to retire if they lose, Eubank sure as hell isn't-a cynical ploy by them & ITV to do a number. The barbs are as lame as hell-they cannot trash talk for toffee & I don't see how Eubank is going to sell himself to America-he doesn't have his dad's charisma or verbal skills.

Joyce vs Stiverne on at the moment.

Stiverne is a 40-year-old punching bag at this point, kinda sad to see people stick around for that, but hope springs eternal.
Joyce the tank will end it eventually by accumulation. Joyce could mix it up near the challenger level, I guess, but bit too slow and basic to shake it up at the very top, nay. Strong and good engine, tho.

Ya, there it is stopped, appropriately. No point in letting that go on indefinitely.

More or less.

DeGale had some success in the first half, but Jr took over, had two knockdowns through the bout and had DeGale at teetering the edge of stoppage toward the end. Clear enough victory in the end. The sometimes crude Eubank fought by a surprisingly astute plan. Probably did him some good to get his arse handed to him by Groves.

Elite high level boxing match along with very professional commentators for the blow to blow action calls. Nice job on done on describing each boxer background before and during the match.

Is this why you watch boxing for?

I missed the fight live. Still struggling along. I thought it was the usual Sunday morning fight but turns out it was Saturday morning. Oops. But no spoiler really. Only thing that was spoiled was the round it ended. Levels and all that. Fair play to Billion Dolla Crolla.

I see the Joshua USA debut is fumbling along. I wonder who the replacement will be.
