Well, the Wilder vs Breazeale fight was interesting for a whole 10 seconds, then Breazeale got flatlined.

Lol, good call hsf. Was some punch.

Allen vs Price added to the Whyte vs Rivas card. I think Price is a better boxer but if he gets clipped it's usually game over.

However, Whyte has really taken on a challenge in Rivas, he's a genuine threat to Whyte and I can see this being a similar battle to his fight with Parker.

I like price but I think Allen will stop him inside 6 rounds. Tbh I've never seen Rivas box before.


2.) 03 May 2019 19:40:33
Rivas is a real handful. Good engine, decent chin and good punch output, however his footwork and his ring IQ are his weakness. He also has a height and reach disadvantage against Whyte, plus he'll likely give away 10Lbs in weight, but that didn't stop him getting a victory over Bryant Jennings - who is similar in stature to Whyte.

That was a sickening body shot from Allen, glad he beat Browne, he's such a character.

hsf

1.) 21 Apr 2019 00:47:06
U can just tell Hearn has something big planned for Allen. Possible usyk at Xmas?


2.) 21 Apr 2019 08:47:51
You just used Allen and Usyk as future opponents 😂 Allen shouldn't, be anywhere near the ring mate. Eddie should be jailed if he promoted that fight. Usyk would destroy him.


3.) 21 Apr 2019 12:33:48
If you watch Hearns interview with ifl after the fight, he openly admits that Allen isn't good enough to fight the elite guys. He'll likely fight Price next and I would imagine that will be his as far as he goes.
If Allen wss to go against Usyk, after Usyk fights Takam later this year, it would be a backwards step for Usyk.

I would like to think that Eddie isn't as stupid as to put Allen in with an elite fighter, as we saw what happened when he fought Ortiz.


4.) 21 Apr 2019 13:14:45
Usyk imo won’t hit hard enough to keep the heavyweights off him. He wasn’t a particularly big puncher at cruiserweight and I believe a lot of the top heavyweights will walk through him. One more good win for Allen and imo his name will be in the mix for a pay day against someone, be it Chisora, Whyte or usyk.


5.) 21 Apr 2019 13:24:16
I wouldn't underestimate Usyk's punch power, Bellew did that and although Bellew doesn't have the greatest chin, it was still decent enough to hold off a hard hitter like Haye, who did land clean a few times against Bellew.

Usyk doesn't need punch power though, he's got exceptional footwork and has a good variation of punches. Personally I want to see Usyk fight Fury, many will say that will be a boring fight, but from the purist perspective, it's the most technical fight out there at HW. I think Fury wins that, purely based on his size but I wouldn't be surprised if he hit the deck once or twice in that fight.


6.) 21 Apr 2019 13:27:13
My point Is Allen his a sparring partner, journey man.
Matchroom are now putting this type of fighter as a main eventer.
Eddie admitting that the guy is out of his class, but deserves big money on a PPV
Because he's a bit of lad and likeable.
The Hearns are snakes
Anybody paying to watch Whyte, Chisora, Allen, Brown Takam, Ortiz Price Parker Hughie Fury, fighting journey men or each other are crazy.


7.) 21 Apr 2019 15:59:06
I understand the point u r making Tylerano mate, my point is that Usyk as good as he is, is untested at Heavyweight and could struggle against Takam. Imo we have to wait to see how usyk performs first before we start talking about him taking on the best.


8.) 21 Apr 2019 16:01:54
I agree Hsf mate usyk is a great figher but I would say the reason he knocked bellew out was because Bellew had run out of steam. Tbf usyk throws so many shots each round he could be busy enough to keep bigger men off him.


9.) 21 Apr 2019 23:46:47
Roro, Usyk was more than a handful at HW in the amatuers, he took care of Joyce quite convincingly.

It's this video which makes me believe that Joyce will never become anything more than a contender. Usyk definitely showed his skills in this match though.


10.) 22 Apr 2019 12:14:25
Yeah hsf I seen that fight before, I like Joyce but god he is slow. Should be interesting to see how Usyk goes against Takam, hopefully he can look good and we can get some match ups next year.


11.) 22 Apr 2019 14:24:57
Well Usyk is already mandatory with the WBO (super champion status from Cruiserweight) so I personally expect AJ to fight him in or around October/ November.

I think he's got the skillset to beat Joshua personally, but we'll see how he does against Takam first.


12.) 22 Apr 2019 15:59:53
I can't see Joshua fighting in the UK this year hsf mate, I just don't think they will get the venue, imo he fights ortiz in America around that time.


13.) 22 Apr 2019 21:35:15
There are plenty of venue's, if they're happy to take AJ to MSG, then I'm sure they'll be happy to put him back at the O2 Arena with ramped up ticket prices. It's the PPV buys that are the main focus and profit.
If not I'm sure the Principality Stadium (which has a roof) will be available for use.


14.) 23 Apr 2019 11:51:27
Joshua is a stadium fighter in the UK, he will not return to the O2. The Principality is the only one, but imo if he fights Wilder, fury or Whyte then that's a Wembley fight. Even usyk I believe will be at Wembley. Imo Joshua raises his profile states side this year till he gets the fights he wants next year at Wembley.

Jarrell Millet has had an adverse finding in his drug test by VADA.
The only thing I can say about that is "lol".

hsf

1.) 17 Apr 2019 11:32:03
According to ESPN's Dan Rafael the banned substance he tested for was GW1516, whatever that is.

Still time to get replacement if the fight is cancelled, maybe ortiz?


2.) 17 Apr 2019 11:49:48
It seems GW1516 increases an athlete's ability to build endurance and lose weight by utilising body fat for energy.


3.) 17 Apr 2019 18:24:29
Miller is just another one in a line of cheating cretins who need to be bashed up in the ring. Kind of hope the fight goes ahead, so Joshua can bash his fat face in.


4.) 18 Apr 2019 02:51:50
I don’t mean to open a can of worms here but aj is a juice head himself as are most boxers and MMA fighters they’re just clever about it as it’s one big racket so they’re usually well informed if they’re to be tested. The only one fighter I could actually 100% say hasn’t touched juice would be Michael bisping, I’d also like to say Lennox Lewis but I can’t be certain in him.


5.) 18 Apr 2019 12:31:14
Caught cheating in boxing and u should get a lifetime ban and criminal record. Someone cheats against u in a football match and the worse that happens is u lose the match, someone cheats against u at boxing and u could lose your life. Not every boxer is a juice head but plenty r out there looking for ways to cheat.

Floyd mayweather was right, anyone who fought him had to agree to Olympic style blood tests, that's what held up the Pacquiao fight.


6.) 18 Apr 2019 13:25:24
Not every roro but certainly more than you would like to think. I’m not going to name drop out of respect but my close friends older brother was one of Britain’s most decorated amateur boxers and should have certainly been at Amur khans level as he was his weight class. He won almost everything but missed out on the Olympic Games amir was at due to a broken hand. Eventually after years of training and not much of a life he started partying after a break up and ended up dabbling with drugs. He did a prison stretch for an assault in a pub and after that his career was pretty much over. It’s a shame because he is a really humble lad and one of the nicest guys you could meet. He now owns his own construction business and I had the pleasure of working for him, he never once raised his voice or demeaned anyone and is genuinely one of the calmest nicest guys you could meet, we all make mistakes.

The reason I tell you that story is because it’s him that informed me about the doping and it is to his knowledge that almost any professional boxer will at some point be in and around steroids. One of his former trainers was pushing him to take nandrolone to aid his recovery but he point blank refused which led to this trainer getting very nasty. A lot of these crooked trainers have mates within the doping agencies so they can let it go if you’re willing to sell your soul and be controlled by some crooked crook.

Anyway just thought I’d share an interesting story, even to this day my mate and his brother train really hard and hate any cheats/ juice heads. I just hope that one day combat sports will start to become legitimate as it’s not fair on those who don’t abuse steroids plus the guys who do are ruining there body’s in later life.


7.) 18 Apr 2019 14:56:28
Yes lerchy boxing like a lot of sports has a drugs problem. I believe it's time the governing bodies stepped in and started handing out proper penalties when caught.

Glad to hear your friend is doing well, there's a lot of weasels in the boxing world just out there to take advantage of young fighters.


8.) 18 Apr 2019 18:20:35
Completely agree mate it’s a dirty game as is pretty much everything. From what I’ve been told aj used to be bang into the juice and that's from a very good source.


9.) 18 Apr 2019 18:20:37
The names being branded about as a replacement for Miller are worrying to be honest, aside from Ortiz (who is apparently top of the list) the rest are all not legitimately worth the title shot.
Names like Manuel Charr (WBA Regular), Adam Kowanacki, Dereck Chisora (if he beats Senad Gashi), even Dave Allen threw his hat into the ring. Admittedly Miller isn't much better than these guys, if he is indeed better at all, but this is turning into a bit of a joke now.

I'd rather Klitschko come out of retirement and fight him to be honest.


10.) 18 Apr 2019 22:15:40
Joshua has been on 2 anti doping programmes since 2012, he himself said that he gets tested 3 times a month, just my opinion lerchy mate but I would say he’s clean. Maybe he did use B4 his boxing days but we will never know.

I must take my hat off to Joshua tbh, his dedication to his trade is remarkable, and the way he studies every little detail of his life is why he is where he is today. I even heard he takes his own lemon to the local cafe when he’s going for a brew. Imo he’s not as gifted as other heavyweights out there, even though he is an gold medal winner in don’t think he’s a very good boxer, but it’s them details that make him be at the top.

Hsf who would want it mate? 6 weeks notice and probably getting offered buttons.


11.) 19 Apr 2019 11:53:57
Tbh mate I'm losing interest in the sport. Too many dopers, too many pretenders and too many big mouth chumps.

There are only 3 guys I'd want to see AJ fight now, Wilder, Fury and Usyk. You could throw Whyte in there too, but the rest are either too old or just simply not good enough. And given its 6 weeks notice I doubt we'll see any big names.

For fun you could put in Shannon Briggs but again he's far too old, but the presser would be funny!


12.) 19 Apr 2019 20:29:48
Hang in there hsf mate, u know more than anyone boxing is a dirty game. Still plenty of great boxers and fights out there, just imagine lomachenko vs Garcia or Spence vs Crawford.


13.) 19 Apr 2019 23:57:29
I'm just sick of fighters ducking each other because their promoter/ managers/ advisers are money grubbing .
I will likely still watch a few fights, but I think I'll only watch Lomachenko, Usyk and Garcia fights, as they are the ones I enjoy watching the most.


 

 

15 Apr 2019 15:02:09
Anthony Crolla got demolished by Lomachenko, which was expected - a total mismatch.

Clarrisa Shields became the undisputed middleweight champion after beating Christina Hammer via a UD. After she got dropped in her previous fight, I thought Shields would struggle against Hammer, however she was rather impressive and won convincingly.

hsf

1.) 16 Apr 2019 14:49:42
Looks like Katie Taylor will be following in Clarrisa Shields footsteps, going for the undisputed crown against Delfine Persoon on the AJ vs Miller card.

I do enjoy watching Taylor fight, she's one fiesty mare!


2.) 16 Apr 2019 23:22:26
Haven't seen persoon box before but her record is impressive, looking forward to it myself hsf.


3.) 17 Apr 2019 00:28:20
Taylor should win, likely via stoppage imo.

Breazeale blocks punches with his face, so I expect Wilder win inside 5.

Doesn't surprise me. Should be a 2 year ban like Fury got (his was backdated as a 2 year ban), but you know.

Eddie Hearn himself said to Boxing Social that it was more than what Miller would have gotten.
