Ed001, as you're busy doing top tens on some of the sites, I was just wondering if you're going to do a top ten for boxing? Like maybe top ten fights, or top ten controversies? Etc.


1.) 02 Jul 2019 18:28:19
I am going to try adding them to all the quiet sites mate, so probably do some on here when I get the chance.

2.) 03 Jul 2019 16:28:30
Sweet! I look forward to it. =].

{Ed001's Note - I will start with doing top 10s at each weight over the next few weeks. Well not all weights, just the 8 real ones.}



19 Jun 2019 19:13:22
Ed001, in light of your excellent peice on Willie Pep, is there a way to have all your boxing articles put onto this site, via a "Boxing Legends and Villains" tab next to Boxing Talk 1 and 2 and Create New Post? I say villains because some of the suggestions in the list are far from legends.

Additionally, who do you plan to look into next?


{Ed001's Note - I have put your suggestion to Ed033 to look into, as it is a good idea.

I was thinking about doing Jack Johnson next, then after that doing someone from the modern era(ish) such as Naseem Hamed or similar.}

1.) 19 Jun 2019 21:18:00
Good choices. Didn't Jack Johnson get recently pardoned by Trump?

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea to be honest.}

2.) 24 Jun 2019 14:58:20
Any sign of the Ken Buchanan one ed?

{Ed001's Note - it will be a while, it takes me a long time to do each one as I will try and read everything I can find on each person, including books as well as stuff online. Sorry mate it might be a few months.}

3.) 25 Jun 2019 09:58:47
No problem ed, I know a lot of research goes in by you on each individual, and these things take time.

{Ed001's Note - thank you mate. I will try and get to it as quickly as possible or look at adding something via an And Finally article on him for you in the meantime.}

4.) 25 Jun 2019 13:45:57
Thanks mate 👍.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

Not posted in a little while as I've been busy. But reading the comments on here I thought I should reply to them.

Regarding Joshua:
As Roro pointed out, he was allegedly knocked out in Sparring by Dawejko (who is fighting Gassiev in July), if the rumours that AJ was concussed before the fight began, then someone is in very very big trouble.

I was saying to a friend of mine, that the way Joshua is at the moment is very similar to when Lewis lost to Rahman (Roro has already compared Ruiz to Rahman) . Joshua is spending large amounts of time away from training as he's fulfilling his ambassadorial roles at William Hill doing adverts, meet and greets, as well as attending events sponsored by William Hill. Plus he has other commitments with Under Armour, Beats by Dre, Sky, DAZN and many more.

Having watched the fight back numerous times without commentary or crowd noise, it's pretty clear to see that Joshua wasn't at his best. He put Ruiz down and then went for the kill. Unfortunately he got careless, got clipped and never recovered. He's been hit harder than he was against Ruiz and recovered fairly quickly (vs Whyte and vs Klitschko), so I'm actually leaning towards the rumours being true about the concussion. I expect the rematch to be a UD win for Joshua, as I expect him to refuse sponsor commitments and just focus on training.

Regarding Wilder:
He might be taking on the mantle of "the bad guy" but there is a huge difference between him and the likes of Mike Tyson. The biggest difference is resume, Wilder is cherry picking his fights, Tyson did not. The only fight he "ducked" was Lewis, but there is no shame in ducking from Lewis, as a lot of people didn't want to fight him.
Wilder is indeed powerful and explosive, but put someone in there that can move and he's screwed, we saw that against a 50% fight fit Fury, who took him to school for 12 rounds and got robbed. A cherry pick gone wrong.

Regarding the HW scene in general:
If memory serves me correctly, Wilder has 3 fights already lined up. Ortiz, Fury and Kownacki. So if that is true, I expect AJ to have a trilogy with Ruiz (unless Ruiz beats him again) with Dillian Whyte also getting his 2nd shot at AJ after.


1.) 12 Jun 2019 19:25:47
Oh I also see a few people saying that Joshua's career is on the line. I don't think so, he's not even into his 30s yet and he's only had 23 fights professionally. He's made enough money to retire yes, but I don't think he will. Tyson didn't retire after back to back defeats to Holyfield, he still went on to fight Frans Botha, Julius Francis, Andrew Galota and Lennox Lewis.

I'd also like to point out to Lerchy, that Joshua wasn't selling crack, cocaine, meth, pills or heroin. He was selling Cannabis, at a low level too I might add, which is why he didn't get prison time. The likelihood is that he sold it to his mates, given that he was caught with 4 ounces of Cannabis. I'd hardly call that being a guy that "ruins lives". If it was harder stuff then yeah I'd agree with you. This comes from experience by the way, unfortunately I was a very impressionable young lad.

2.) 13 Jun 2019 11:16:17
Good post that hsf, I agree with a lot of it.

Imo, fury is the only heavyweight who beats wilder. Fury is abit of a freak of nature, not many big men can move like him.

On mike tyson ( who was class), after he came out of jail he was fighting to pay his bills, he even said himself 'I haven't loved boxing since 1990'. If Joshua loses again, yes there will still be demand to see him but will his desire still be there to drop down again and rebuild.

On the rematch, one thing I was thinking that no1 seems to have mentioned is, how will ruiz react now to fulfilling a lifelong ambition and becoming champion? We have seen a lot of fighters before lose their hunger and even go off the rails abit when they become champion, how will he handle all this new frame, fortune, and pressure?

3.) 13 Jun 2019 16:20:15
Personally I think there are two ways to beat Wilder.
1). Punch and move - very much like Fury does, Wilder seems to be bamboozled by anyone that moves, even the likes of Gerald Washington had Wilder confused for 4 rounds.

2). Crowd him out. Wilder has absolutely no inside game, he can't generate his explosive power from short ranges as his arms are too "gangley". He needs to swing in order to turn out peoples lights and you can't swing when someone is on your chest. It's also worth mentioning that Wilder is known for being bambi on ice when fighting on the back foot.

I honestly feel Wilder's days are numbered as champion, and I think his first loss will spell the end of his career, his ego is far too fragile to come back from a loss.

Andy Ruiz has got good people around him who will keep his feet on the ground. I don't think he'll fall apart and lose his hunger.

4.) 13 Jun 2019 23:02:47
I don’t think wilder is all that hsf, we know he can really bang with the right, his left hook is good and carries some wack, he throws the odd good jab, but that’s it just them 3 things, tbf he did show a good chin against ortiz.

If u take fury out of it, imo every other heavyweight gets hit by him at some stage, a 50% fury who still moved better than an other heavyweight out there now got hit by him twice, both ko shots. Fury’s power of recovery was remarkable and imo I don’t think many other heavyweights out there have that either.

1.) 02 Jun 2019 12:16:09
AJ underestimated him. He couldn't work Ruiz out and showed himself lacking mentally as a fighter.
Fury would eat him alive.

2.) 02 Jun 2019 14:18:53
Wow didn’t see that coming. Hats off to Ruiz and fair play to Joshua, took defeat like a man. The rematch will be a very important fight. U called it hsf fair play mate.

3.) 03 Jun 2019 11:00:52
I said a few weeks ago aj is a fraud and an ex juice head. Might be packing all that muscle but he can’t take a punch. Best heavyweight on the planet, 😂 not even the best in London. Imagine what wilder would have done to him!

It was only a few years ago he was sticking his knees up and yelping when fury was teeing off on him In sparring. Don’t believe the hype, that Eddie Hearn must be gutted now his money trains running out.

How rude of him just to interrupt Ruiz interview and say I’m off, who exactly does he think he is? I hope Ruiz knocks him out again.

4.) 03 Jun 2019 12:19:08
Alot of people mostly casual Joshua fans will have already turned against him, I’m not his favourite fan (fury my favourite), but I wouldn’t kick Joshua too much now that he’s down. 6 months time he could have his titles back and Ruiz Jr’s name will go down in history next to Hasham rahman.

For Joshua what worries me is that it wasn’t a one big lucky punch, it was an accumulation of punches that stopped him, still though a sign of a great champion is how they come back from failure, we see now how good Joshua is.

Imo, Joshua needs to concentrate on his boxing instead of being in every commercial on tv these days.

5.) 03 Jun 2019 15:19:57
Arrogance personified roro. Who’s he to come over and interrupt Ruiz talking when he’s just won the world title? Then says I’m off, it’s like he thinks he’s guaranteed the belt. Coward of a man who turned to boxing as he was scared bigger boys were going to get him in jail. Don’t sell drugs and ruin lives then! Sorry but I never have liked the guy and his arrogance and nice guy persona makes me 🤢.

6.) 03 Jun 2019 16:03:08
I know a lot of people Lerchy mate who years ago people would have classed as scumbags but today they r gentlemen, people can change.

Like I said I'm not Joshuas biggest fan, but I wouldn't jump on the band wagon to put him down. (Not saying u r mate, u have always said how u feel about him) .

7.) 03 Jun 2019 17:29:28
Probably a bit harsh roro I can go on one sometimes 😂. You’re dead right there people change so I’m wrong for saying that.

The mic grabbing at the end sums his character up to me though mate, that was his glory and his time to shine. An should have shut up and waited until he was spoken to if he was the humble guy he makes out.

Anyway, fury next another upset there? No chance!

8.) 03 Jun 2019 18:32:47
Your prob right about Joshua grabbing the mic but again he's just lost his world title and was clearly concussed. He should have showed more class. Fury lol, has me in stitches everytime I see him. He showed get class in his tweet to Joshua unlike that plonker wilder.

9.) 03 Jun 2019 19:04:45
That’s because he’s real mate 😁.

10.) 03 Jun 2019 19:41:29
I want to see fury back in tip top shape here on the 15th. He's had enough time now to get rid of the flab.

11.) 04 Jun 2019 20:34:33
Rematch confirmed, Joshua has to win or its the end imo.

12.) 09 Jun 2019 19:04:46
I have met AJ on a few occasions and the haters couldn’t be me wrong about him.
I don’t understand some people in this country they just love to see people fail and they are a disgrace.
Yes he is an ex drug dealer turned his life round and no matter what people think of him as a boxer he won an Olympic gold medal and became heavyweight champion of the world then you get guys who like fury who pooed it from a rematch with WK twice FACT to go on a bender and get coked out his nut and then he said he was giveing all his money from wilder fight to the homeless which he didn’t FACT and people like they guy 🙈.

13.) 10 Jun 2019 09:06:24
Abit hypocritical Gannet, u congratulate Joshua for turning his life around but at the same time ridicule fury for his past mistakes.



19 May 2019 16:25:25
Well, the Wilder vs Breazeale fight was interesting for a whole 10 seconds, then Breazeale got flatlined.


1.) 19 May 2019 23:50:13

Tyson would wreck Frazier in my opinion. It would be a replica of the Foreman vs Frazier.

Inb4 100 punches per round from Manny Pacquiao, until the 12th, where he will throw 250 punches, as his EPO kicks in.

Can't say I'd disagree with that list, although I personally would rank Tyson lower down the list, imo.

Lewis would beat Bowe, I think Tua and Tyson would be too close to call, same to for the 3rd fight.
In the modern era I think spence beats Crawford, I did used to think Garcia would be Lomachenko but now I'm not so sure and Fury vs Usyk would likely be won by Fury imo.
