I would definitely rule out Fielding causing an upset, but maybe not Bellew (and yes i'll be paying for it, since winning 75 mini bottles of wine off me over the first Haye/Bellew fight, the missus won't miss his fights)

Cardle/Burns could be very tasty although imo it depends on how much Burns has got left in the tank. Agree with you that Cardle's been a disappointment but still a bit of time left for him yet.

Still not convinced Wilder/Fury is happening but if it does think Wilder within 5 based on the last 2 showings of Fury.

Whyte/Chisora, Whyte by UD although if Chis is motivated could see some wobbly moments for Whyte who's just treading water until he can rematch Joshua.

Spence/Crawford - how i've missed any mention of this is beyond me but could go to either man.

Warrington/Frampton another interesting one as Warrington shown a lot of people (including me) that he was a hell of a lot better than we ever gave him credit for. Think it'll be close with a razor thin decision going the Irishmans way.

Canelo/Fielding - Canelo's whenever he ups the pressure.

Paul Butler looking very good here. Boxed a very clever fight and won near enough every round comfortably.

Zach Parker showing massive heart fighting with only 1 hand since the 2nd round

I wouldn't mind seeing Williams/Parker again,

Parkers done amazing the last 3 rounds and reckon that would have been an absolute classic without the injury

Woooah dunno how Parker was called the winner in that, although I did say in the early rounds Williams was missing a hell of a lot (how the f V.L gave it 117 - 112 to Parker I don't know)

Deffo gotta be a rematch now

Nonito donaire beats Ryan Burnett after the Irish boy suffers a severe back injury. What a sad way to your world title and unbeaten record. Donaire vs Tete next

Gutted for him Nat, but he'll be back, his corner deffo made the right decision pulling him out but he's a great talent.

Josh Taylor up next, think he's an absolutely massive talent

No disrespect to Nonito but this was supposed to be Ryan's big night getting that big name on the CV. Terrible luck. Nonito was a true gentleman after the bout. Class shown by the Filipino

Agree mate, should have been a passing of the torch and the aftermath just ramps up the respect for Donaire, wouldn't be surprised to see a rematch further down the line as honestly think Donaire would use the loss to retire as a consumate professional and as a tip of the hat to Burnett

Josh Taylor absolutely destroyed Ryan Martin. Man vs Boy. The Scotsman was outstanding

Unfortunately I don't see a rematch happening mate. Tete could well KO Nonito and that would probably end his career. As if Nonito some how reached the final, Inoue is a monster and Nonito could get a severe beating

I'm probably just hoping to be honest, the set up there was perfect for a proper passing of the torch.

Josh Taylor is something else and I honestly think he could be the top no.1 in a few years time. Done everything the hard way, took the tough fights and learnt from every opponent. Shows you what can happen if your not just scraping to build the wins up.

Taylor has a touch of class and let's be honest anyone that beats the nauseating O'hara Davies should be a fan favourite..

Big times ahead...

Coming back to Wilder v Fury...Look a right bunch of muppets if it gets cancelled now..

No way back for Fury if he pulls out like Wlad 2..

Who would ever risk a big promotion with him again..

Not sure Taylor needed to hit Martin when he was down though, Martin was defenceless. Good display against an ordinary opponent so Baranchyk will tell us more


Some fans high on Taylor, others on Prograis, the great thing is we don’t have to wait to find out who’s number one. And that’s why everyone i’m sure is a fan of tournaments like this because as Lou said once you’re signed up you can’t run and you can’t hide. So if someone wins his semi and doesn’t fancy his chances in the final, he’s got to man up

Do we think the fight was stopped prematurely?

Or was it compassionate saving him from the inevitable?

I take that back, just watched it again and Martin hadn’t touched down so Taylor fully entitled, I guess

1.36  ‘I think ppv is dead unless the price point changes’

With the rise of boxing streaming(in USA) won’t this mean that ppv will simply lower its ‘price point’(as Eddy puts it) rather than go away altogether?

If so that means boxing is still going to be an expensive sport to follow? DAZN, ESPN then a few ppv’s a year at say 30-40$. The hope was that ppv disappears entirely but is that going to happen?

Stevenson already running from Bivol and Beterbiev that’s why he’s talking Bellew now

He’ll never step in with Beterbiev or Bivol just like he wouldn’t Kovalev(or Alvarez for that matter)

Don’t know if Gvozdyk is as good as Bivol and Beterbiev but some posters on here actually rate him as the man in the division. Let’s hope they’re right but Stevenson does sound quite confident in this one. 50/50 for me very good fight

Stevenson going into the unknown a bit here it should be added don’t forget he was forced into this fight don’t think he would have taken it otherwise

Especially straight after his last fight

The right hand is a dangerous weapon though very dangerous weapon and that as we know is the last thing a boxer loses. But this at least on paper has to be the hardest test of his reign to date

I would have loved to have seen Ward take on Stevenson. Would have been amusing. However there's no way Stevenson would have taken it. There would have been a danger of him losing... I reckon he won't stay fighting for too much longer.

Bob thinks that Canelo with the deal he’s got with DAZN means he’ll be fighting the most part second tier opposition. Wonder if he’s right
