First topic message reminder :

Happy new year, fight fans. Any optimism for bouts or fighters out there? The flagship fight for the sport is the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world and correct me if I’m wrong but it’s surely going to be a disappointment. Here’s why I think that.
Fury has been past his best for so long but has managed to hide it with hand-picked second tier opposition whom he can simply bully. He’s out of shape and needs injections in his elbows regularly as well as his thin legs after carrying between twenty and thirty stone for so long are nearly gone.
The pathetic outbursts against Usyk and the assertions of superiority were the desperate egotistical bleats of a charlatan. Wilder? One of the most hyped boxers in history. Wallin, exposed as mediocre. And humiliated by a man who hadn’t boxed professionally before. And this guy is talked of as a top ten or twenty all time great?!

Even he must know know that to beat Usyk he needs to show some fleet-footed movement as he will not win by attempting to rag doll him;Usyk has such a ring iq that he will be one step ahead that if Fury tries to walk him down.he will look like a lumbering oaf.

Sadly I no longer care about there being a British champ because on merit Fury has no right to call himself undisputed. When Lennox achieved the feat twenty odd years ago it was the culmination of years of hard work and I was right there with him sharing his joy. But now I simply want the better fighter to win and that’s Oleksander Usyk.

Anyway, I guess there are proper fighters to support, like Naoya Inoue . For those who still take an internet in the sport, don’t pay up for the Saudi funded insults, let’s support the real warriors not cheesy selfish dossers like Fury. Rant over!

Inoue can obviously draw a crowd fighting a mannequin. The one guy who can give him a fight Akhmadaliev, sums up the sport today. Horrible era of boxing the four belt era.

Bring on the Saudi takeover. Anything’s got to be better than the current model where one of it’s major stars can not defend his title for three years

The one person who can give him a fight?

The same was said of Tapales, Fulton, Moloney and Rodriguez. Akhmadaliev isn't special so fighting other people in the top is not an issue.

It’s the toughest test of his career by far and Bob knows it. But good on Bob, still sprightly and still taking the micky out of the fans

Now you're just exaggerating for the sake of it.

Usyk has given up the IBF belt, as they had insisted on him fighting Dubois as their mandatory challenger.

So is Dubois now upgraded to World Champion? Or does he still have to fight for that privilege?

Dubois v Joshua heavily rumoured for September 21st at Wembley Stadium (Riyadh Season still applies  Laugh ) so that's looking like a World Title fight either way.

Looks like they're expecting Dubois Vs Joshua to be for the now vacant IBF belt, though I'm not sure that's confirmed yet.

Strange that the IBF would insist given Usyk had only just fought Dubois - 26 Aug 2023 - and won convincingly after Dubois quit in round 9.  Some are suggesting that the Saudi's intervened to get the AJ vs Dubois fight which wouldn't have happened otherwise.   Not sure if that is the case - they could have thrown money to get the AJ- Wilder fight done for this year before it is too late  (one last fight for Wilder?).   I think most see the AJ vs Dubos fight as a more or less straight forward stoppage win for AJ, with Dubois not quite developed enough in terms of defence.

ps Everyone would have heard by now that Dubois was upgraded to official IBF World Champion 26 Jun 2024 following Usyk giving up the belt and following Dubois' stoppage win over Filip Hrgovic for the interim IBF belt.

Why he was upgraded God only knows.
Or maybe it’s not unrelated to his dubious result against Keven Lerena, which had dubious time -keeping and dubious rescinding of the three knockdown rule.

Alan needs to pack it in now. Turpin left it too late. A job in the media surely awaits. Who wouldn’t want to see Fisher against Big D for a shoot-out with the winner to fight a Moses or the Clarke/Wardley winner? Never seen Dacres so not counting me chickens, he did appear very confident if you remember when he spoke to Wardley him and Adeleye next good fight in the division. Division hotting up again, a good few fights in a row now
