Was thinking about the WBC making whyte mandatory and when he will get his shot. Wilder next is fighting ortiz probably in November then he has the fury rematch probably around May 2020, then if he gets beat he could have a 3rd fight with Ortiz or fury who will jump ahead of Whyte. So in all reality Whyte might not get his shot at the WBC title until early 2021.

Khan to fight Pacquiao 8th Nov in Saudi Arabia. Last hoorah for both I expect.


1.) 17 Jul 2019 00:27:04
Mannys camp have denied it, Roro mate, it seems Khan has jumped the gun.


2.) 17 Jul 2019 11:54:02
They will fight no doubt about it. One last money spinner.


3.) 17 Jul 2019 17:54:38
Mannys camp have said that no agreement is in place, they aren't happy with Khan announcing it, like you say Roro, it should happen eventually, just a pity both of them are passed their best now.


4.) 17 Jul 2019 20:57:03
Mannys camp can say what they want mate. Pacquiao runs the show and we all know he's not fighting for the love of it anymore. Imo he won't refuse the type of money that will be on offer to face Khan.


5.) 18 Jul 2019 00:36:12
Don't you kid yourself mate, it's the tv network's and promoter's who run boxing.


6.) 18 Jul 2019 11:45:28
Pacquiao calls the shots on his career mate. Doesn't matter what tv channel it's on, if some rich Arab is willing to pay u 15mil of his own money to fight in his back yard, what has the tv companies got to do with it. Pacquiao is also a promotional free agent in boxing, which means he controls his own career. We r talking about an eight weight Hall of framer here, not some up and coming prospect.


7.) 18 Jul 2019 15:21:46
He's at the end of his career mate, he's not the big tv draw he once was.

{Ed001's Note - are you kidding? There are millions of Pinoy around the world who are paying to watch it PPV on TFC. Pacman is a monster draw still.}


8.) 18 Jul 2019 16:15:15
Sorry I must correct my previous post. Pacquiao signed with Al Haymon last year but as an adviser/ manager. All of Pacquiaos fights r co promoted by PBC and MP promotions which is pacquiaos own promotional company.


9.) 18 Jul 2019 20:59:14
Too much money on offer for that fight not to happen.


10.) 19 Jul 2019 02:47:03
In his home nation yes ed, but I wouldn't say that he had the same ppv draw in America now though.

{Ed001's Note - why would that matter? He still makes a huge amount from around the world, amongst the biggest of any boxer, he doesn't need the US. Not everything is about the Americans.}


11.) 19 Jul 2019 13:19:33
The yanks run boxing ed, you just have to look at where Fury and AJ were boxing recently.

{Ed001's Note - not really, only for those, such as Fury and AJ, that do not have the possibility to earn the money elsewhere. Pacquiao makes more elsewhere, the US is not that big a deal to him. It was in the past, but not any more.}


12.) 19 Jul 2019 16:03:45
Do you think that the Fury v Wilder rematch will be at Wembley ed? I can't see a fight of that stature being in an indoor arena.

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea, there are quite a few places it could be held.}


13.) 19 Jul 2019 16:22:06
Fury must have first choice to take it to the UK I would think ed?

{Ed001's Note - it will depend on lots of factors, such as available dates in potential locations. So it could end up anywhere.}


14.) 20 Jul 2019 10:36:40
The price of ppv means the rematch will take place on American soil again.


15.) 20 Jul 2019 20:29:52
Wembley or Old Trafford I heard from my Manchester Irish friends.


16.) 21 Jul 2019 02:17:32
Most likely Vegas. Fury is doing lots of media work in the US to build his profile and sell the fight there. The trilogy fight will probably in England.


17.) 21 Jul 2019 13:20:58
Surely you don't think that there's going to be a third fight after Fury schools him again? Everyone knows who the true heavyweight champion of the world is.


18.) 21 Jul 2019 15:27:25
Vegas would be my guess.

Sad news about about pernell witaker, RIP.


1.) 16 Jul 2019 20:16:58
He was such a great boxer. Sad news indeed Roro.


2.) 17 Jul 2019 17:50:50
Very sad, from what I remember, he was a classy boxer.


 

 

13 Jul 2019 22:58:23
My dear old Grandad used to say u had to knock an American out in America to get a draw. Well the same can be said about Britain now, that Joyce fight was a disgrace.

U said it hsf mate afew weeks ago, getting bored of all the crap in boxing now.


1.) 13 Jul 2019 23:59:38
The Fury draw was probably the worst decision in the last few months roro, boxing and horse racing have been the most fixed sports ever.


2.) 14 Jul 2019 13:08:59
I always liked Joyce used to think he was a likeable big lad but he annoyed me last night. Got on like a prick, just looked like a big doorman trying to bully someone.

Daniel Dubois vs Nathan Gorman
Fight Preview.

The names Dubois and Gorman are legendary among fighting folklore. Sylvia Dubois was born into slavery and used her incredible strength to fight her way to freedom, Bartley Gorman 'The Most Dangerous unarmed Man On The Planet' was the great bare-knucke champion who retired undefeated and gained the official title of 'King Of The Gypsies', . On Saturday night the names Dubois and Gorman will enter into another battle as the fighting ancestors of Sylvia and Bartley face each other in London at the O2 arena. Daniel Dubois (11,0,0 10kos) will challenge fellow British prospect Nathan Gorman (16,0,0 11kos) for the vacant British heavyweight title. Billed as 'Heavy Duty', the card will feature fellow heavyweight prospect Joe Joyce as he takes on former heavyweight world title challenger Bryant Jennings.

Like his heavy handed ancestor Daniel Dynamite Dubois 'Triple D' is all about sheer strength. With a 91% knock out ratio the 6' 5" Greenwich East-London native has lived up to his family name so far in his short career. Trained by the highly regarded Martin Bowers at Canning Town's famous Peacock Gym he started boxing at the age of nine after his father Dave brought him to the gym and went on to achieve an excellent amateur record of 69-6 collecting two junior ABA titles, two junior International titles and a gold in the 2016 GB Championships. In 2016 he was also used as an sparring partner by a certain heavyweight by the name of Anthony Joshua. A big left hook from the Dynamite Kid is rumoured to have put the former unified heavyweight champion on the seat of his pants, and talk starting growing of a potential Gold for GB at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, before signing with Frank Warren in 2017.

In the paid ranks Dubois has excelled in his first 11 fights although he is yet to face an opponent who has really tested him. The veteran heavyweight Kevin Johnson is the only man so far to hear the final bell against Dubois using his experience to survive the ten round distance. Johnson who has been in with some of the best in his long career said of Dubois "His jab is better than Klitscko's, I just couldn't get past that jab, it's like being hit with another heavyweights right hand. " Triple D although his record might suggest otherwise is not a conclusive puncher according to Johnson describing the young brit as being heavy handed who wears you down with a series of heavy shots. Still very raw DDD, can be a little eager to get involved in a shoot -out instead of sticking to his boxing, although he does produce some lovely work when working behind his ramrod jab. He attacks the body with deadly combinations which often end with a vicious uppercut . Still only 21 years of age Dubois is a baby in the heavyweight division and has his eyes set on Herbie Hides record of 22 years and six months as the youngest Britain to win a world title and if he beats Gorman on Saturday his name will be in the world title mix.

With his head trainer Ricky 'Hitman' Hatton by his side Nathan Gorman says he's in the shape of his life "we're training for a knockout. A wins a win but with what I'm going through in this gym, I want to walk out of there on July 13th having put a spectacular show on. I've had world class sparring partners, and with all the other stuff in the gym I'm smashing all my records. Come July 13th I'll be flying, I'm coming to take that belt at all costs. " The Cheshire man is right to be confident, he and Dubois have shared a ring before, this time as amateurs in the GB setup and Gorman claims he always got the upper hand in their sessions. Gorman is the latest of heavyweights to come from the Travelling Community and like his distant cousin Tyson Fury he is also undefeated. Unlike his opponent Gorman is not the body beautiful type, at age 11 he weighed 12 stone and was a fully fledged 95 kilo (15 stone) super heavyweight at age 15. His amateur career spammed eight years losing only once in 12 fights, collecting the youth ABA's and three nation titles along the way, now 6' 4.5" with a 73" reach Gorman has continued that good form into the professionals.

Like his midland ancestor, Nathan has quick hands and feet and has great variety in his punches. He attacks both head and body and has a quality jab of his own. His last three contests have went the distance and once again the old gatekeeper Kevin Johnson was one of them, using his tricks to lose on a unanimous decision. At only 23 years of age Gorman sees a victory on Saturday night propelling himself into world heavyweight contention. During camp his wife give birth to a baby girl and Gorman says that that has given him the extra motivation needed to defeat his rival.

Both men have legends backing their talents, former heavyweight WBC champion Frank Bruno said of Dubois " he's very much got the ingredients and I think if you slow him down a little bit, once he's matured, he's going to be unstoppable. " Former two weight world champion Ricky Hatton said of Gorman "Nathan has great upper body movement, great boxing ability, great hand speed. He will have no problem landing against Daniel. " Gorman also has the backing of new WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz Jr, who has likened the match up to his recent win of Anthony Joshua. This is not the first time young British prospects have been pitted against each other, in 2011 James Degale and George Groves faced each other in only their 11th and 13th fight respectively and like Degale and Groves that's hope both these young hopefuls go on to world honours.

Nice piece roro mate 👍.


3.) 14 Jul 2019 00:31:05
Cheers mate. Was good fight, did u see it? I was impressed with Dubois, reminded me of a heavyweight triple G.


4.) 14 Jul 2019 11:47:42
Not yet mate, I'm going to watch it on YouTube later.


5.) 20 Jul 2019 01:48:03
Dubious is the real deal, he will be undisputed heavy weight champion.


6.) 21 Jul 2019 13:22:16
Have you not seen Fury Joey? Lol 😁.

Whyte is a mile behind the top guys at heavyweight, imo he's happy fighting other contenders cause he know all the champs would beat him and he then has to start over.

Fan of fury myself but don't underestimate Wilders power, if he catches fury again he could easily put him to sleep and fury knows it. That fight is not a walk in the park at some r making out.
