Sky sports boxing is turning into wwe.

Agree0 Disagree0

It's not just SkySports Roro, remember the antics that Wilder and Fury put on?

I know it's popular to rag on Hearn (and he is a total bellend), but he's probably the best promoter in Boxing today. He's like that car salesman that people tell you about, can sell sand to the arabs and ice to the inuits etc.
Case in point: Someone pointed out in a video on IFL that Eddie went through every single show coming up in the next 3 months, without missing a single name in just over 3 minutes or something, without correcting himself once. You can't deny his talent to sell a fight.

I do think the quality of fights on SkySports have been better than other broadcasters in the UK too. There have been the odd good fight on other channels, but not the same level as Sky do.

You are right Hsf, Eddie Hearns commitment and work ethic has to be applauded.

There seems to be a network rivalry starting among some fans, sky was miles ahead in terms of quality although BT have closed the gap recently. Personally I don’t care what network a fight is shown on, I just want to see good fights.

Joshua vs Miller in NYC confirmed.
Slightly disappointed, don't think Joshua will struggle with this at all, I think Joshua will outbox him for 12 rounds imo.

In his home town Miller will give it everything though he has bad footwork and zero head movement. His cross arm defence will not stand up against AJ and I expect an AJ win by ko inside 6. Joshua will be out to make a big statement in his American debut, and they couldn’t have picked a better opponent for him to do that imo.

I kind of expect it to go like Lewis vs Tua. I don't think it'll end in a knockout, personally.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Feb 2019 07:21:11
I see where your coming from hsf although Tua was a formidable puncher who had the power to hurt Lewis, I don’t think Miller has that ko power.
Been reading that a lot of people think this is going to be a very interesting fight and that some are picking Miller to win, I can’t see it. One thing in Millers favour is due to his size it will be hard to knock him out, so I’ll bump my original prediction up from 6 to 8 rounds, but still going to be a easy win for AJ imo.

The WBC have ordered Whyte vs Breazeale for an "interim" WBC title.

About time that the WBC stop taking a dump on Whyte.

Just heard that Conor Benn will be fighting Harlem Eubank, so looks like we'll see Eubank vs Benn 3 after all? HA!

Believable0 Unbelievable0

09 Feb 2019 13:35:28
Lol. When degale vs eubank was announced I wasn't fussed on it but as it gets closer I'm starting to look forward to it. I can't see it being anything other than a cracking fight.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2019 05:29:03
Meh, Degale is finished and Eubank is a muppet. I'm not going to bother watching it live, screw paying for that PPV.

so as it looks, aj will fight miller in june
i personally ain't looking forward to it much and won't be staying up till 5am uk time to watch it live.
can't really see much happening throughout the fight, miller will have the odd moment maybe but I expect aj to just go through the motions and ko him within 5/ 6 rounds.

Was thinking the same myself mark. Miller is tailor made for AJ.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Feb 2019 21:09:34
So it looks like miller for AJ next, because the fight is in new York I expect miller to put up his best performance but still easy enuf win for AJ inside 6 imo.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

07 Feb 2019 03:24:33
Points win for AJ imo, should be easy enough to outbox a 300lbs sumo wrestler.

So after watching a few interviews and reading a few articles, I've come to the following conclusion.

There will be no unification fight in the Heavyweight division this year.
Wilder vs Fury 2 is going to happen - Probably in May.
Joshua will fight either Whyte or Miller (April or June) .
The WBO mandatory will be called for the Autumn, maybe December.
The WBC mandatory will be called for the same time.

So the undisputed "title" will not be fought for until 2020, between March and May.

So realistically, I think the following match ups will happen.

Joshua vs Miller in June (stupid fight)

Whyte vs Breazeale to decide the WBC mandatory status.

Wilder vs Fury 2

Winner of Wilder vs Fury 2 will fight the winner of Whyte vs Breazeale

Joshua to face WBO mandatory (likely Usyk) in Autumn.

Then 2020 will be the undisputed title match. Which I believe will be Joshua vs Fury, unless Joshua loses to his WBO mandatory, in which case you know there will be a rematch.

I have believed that Miller will be next for AJ for afew months now, he just ticks all the right boxes to make AJ look good in his American debut. He’s slow, has no head movement, and can’t box, tbf he does throw a decent body shot. On the other hand though he’s abit of a name well in Newyork anyway, and he can talk a good fight.

After destroying Miller, I think Joshua will stay in America and possibly have a rematch with Breazeale.

Whyte clearly warrants a world title shot, though he wants the right money for it. I read he turned down 4m (which is about 30%) to face AJ in April, that is not a big enough piece of the pie for Whyte to risk everything. I feel for Whyte because if he’s doesn’t accept this offer then what does he do? Even if he signs with Frank Warren I still don’t believe he will get a WBC shot, as I see Fury beating Wilder and then a trilogy between them two around Christmas.

Agree 2019 will bring no unification heavyweight fight. Imo, the only way it happens in 2020 is a 50/ 50 spilt. Can’t see whoever holds the WBC belt accepting anything less.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jan 2019 19:47:38
Can't see AJ staying in America for more than 1 fight, him rematching Breazeale wouldn't sell at all, as he already convincingly beat him.
AJ and Hearn have constantly talked about what they've built here in the UK, so AJ will only fight in America to either raise his profile (vs Miller) or for a Vegas fight with Wilder.
No other fights will sell in America tbh, we saw Wilder vs Fury only hit 350k PPV, which is less than what Pacquiao vs Broner did (440k) . I just don't think Boxing sells in the US like it used to, it seems like they're either sick of the corruption, or sick of the pricing of the PPV (in excess of $100 at times) .
The UK is the new Mecca of Boxing, it will just take a while for the Americans to accept it.

Fury vs Wilder trilogy? Maybe.

Everything else you say is pretty much on the money though. Although I do agree with Hearn, that it doesn't matter how much you get for a title shot, because if you win you become the king. And in Whyte's case, he might just beat Joshua.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jan 2019 19:11:05
Breazeale arguably done as well against Joshua as Whyte done, with the expectation of one left hook Whyte got beat up every round.

Imo if AJ goes to America to fight Miller and it does ok numbers he will stay for another one possibly in Vegas, who is there left really for him to fight in he UK? I could even see he doing a sort of World tour, going to places like Dubai and China as u mentioned be4 hsf.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jan 2019 22:00:57
Difference being is Whyte has come on leaps and bounds since his loss to Joshua. Breazeale has had wars with people he shouldn't have.

I see Breazeale being beaten by all of the top rated heavyweights, where as Whyte has the ability to beat any of the top contenders.

There are actually rumours of Whyte fighting Klitschko, who is allegedly making a come back. I kind of hope he doesn't come back.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jan 2019 02:10:44
I have said for awhile now that if anyone deserves a shot at the title it is Dillian Whyte. Although that doesn’t mean I think he can win it. Since he fought Joshua his best win has been Joseph Parker, which was a close fight where Whyte was hanging on at the end. Whyte imo is jostling with afew others to be the 4th best heavyweight, a mile behind the top 3.

Forget about Breazeale hsf, what about say ortiz in Vegas for AJ?

Just trying to think outside the box if Whyte, fury or wilder are not available for Joshua after miller then what fight is there?

Klitschko coming back is just wrong, I would hate to see it mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jan 2019 04:52:12
Ortiz would be good, but I doubt it would last very long. Given his age and his last performance against Kaufmann.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jan 2019 13:11:06
AJ and matchroom thought that everyone would just accept what they were offered, Wilder in April then prob Miller or Whyte later in the year but that plan is now crushed. Other than Wilder and Fury, Whyte is the only other name that sells in the UK. Do we really want the red carpet rolled out for the likes of Pulev? ( no disrespect intended) . I think Joshua will almost sacrifice this year in the UK and raise his profile in America.

Seen a interview last night with Eddie Hearn on the toe2toe podcast on sky, thought he talked a lot of rubbish tbh. He said that they have offered WBC champ a 60/ 40 spilt to face AJ but then he said if Fury wins the WBC belt then they will offer him a 50/ 50 split to face AJ, well why not just offer Wilder a 50/ 50 split now? He then went on to say that fury should be getting the majority of the 60/ 40 spilt for the Wilder rematch because in Hearns view fury won the first match, well if he feels that way then why not just offer fury a 50/ 50 split now to face Joshua?

Broner should hang them up. You can't go into a fight and throw single digit punches every single round.

Didnt think Pacquiao looked great either, the top guys would prob ko him now. Did u see the badou jack fight? That gash on jacks forehead was one of the worst I've ever seen.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jan 2019 17:51:40
Didn't see the fight (had no internet) but I did see the cut, it was a very, very bad one. Reminded me of the cut Vitali Klitschko got against Lennox Lewis.

Iron Mike Tyson was on the Joe rogan show during the week there.

Was an interesting watch. He practically ignores his boxing past, which is probably a good thing for him, as it keeps him in check and keeps the ego down.

I'm genuinely happy for Mike, now that he's seemingly found some peace in his life.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2019 12:19:43
How he is still alive and doing alright is a mystery, just shows u the affect a good woman can have on your life mate. He's still an emotional wreck but yes I thought he talked well at times and looked to be doing well also.

Probably all the weed he smokes, if only this country wasnt backwards we could have the choice, rather than addictive prescription drugs.
