You too Roro.

Black bin bags on those where the days.

Tcr could you provide some links for a stream in advance of the ufc for Saturday please mate? Thanks in advance. Also do any of you guys follow ufc? Credit till for his bravery but he has no brains fighting 3 absolute monsters back to back I can see him out in the first again. As for Diaz masvifal just wow. Toss of a coin.

Agree0 Disagree0

I like Till and was gutted with his last 2 fights. I think he took Masvidal for granted after he dropped him early. Till is huge at Welterweight so moving up was only a matter of time but Gastelum is a brave pick, if he wins he’ll be in a great position though.
Masvidal Diaz should be a great fight but I’m backing Masvidal for the win possibly by stoppage. The winner of that will fight for the title.

02 Nov 2019 13:38:13
Should be a great night all amazing line ups with out and out fighters no leg kick grab and runs just stand and bang.

On a side note why is the rock presenting the bmf belt? I’m sorry but there’s only one bmf and he still is and that’s mike tyson.

Looking forward to canelo vs Kovalev on Saturday. I'm picking canelo to win by knockout late in the fight with a body shot, he has so much variety to his game I can't see Kovalev having an answer, also Kovalev is not great fighting on the inside which canelo will exploit. Although, it's alright taking punches off Jacob's and GGG but Kovalev will be a different ball game in terms of punching power but canelo is so solid imo u could hit him with a sledgehammer and he would still be standing. Good fight but expecting canelo to show his true class.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Oct 2019 14:46:33
Kovalev isn’t the fighter he used to be and he’s going to have to win by KO because the cards will favour Canelo regardless. Kovalev is vulnerable to body shots of course and I don’t know if he still has that hunger. Make no mistake, he’s got a good jab and still hits harder than anyone Canelo has faced so this won’t be easy but Canelo will win this for me, and I agree he could well stop him with a body shot.

Benn fight off.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Oct 2019 00:01:37
Good, it was a stupid fight anyway.

29 Oct 2019 00:52:13
He's claiming a shoulder injury Roro mate, that's probably code for POOR TICKET SALES lol.

29 Oct 2019 14:17:20
Or he could be realising that he's 55 years old and actually done his shoulder in.

29 Oct 2019 15:01:25
It would have shown up in all the tests he had, at 52 quid a ticket I don't think that there would have been many takers of tickets for a so called top of the bill fight.

29 Oct 2019 16:25:56
You don't see an injury in a scan before it happens.

29 Oct 2019 17:43:45
I never said that, I said if it was an existing injury due to being 55 with wear and tear it would have shown up, he said the other day that he had a double round of scans and that they were all clear.

29 Oct 2019 22:52:36
I don't get your point in "probably code for bad sales". Why does that even need to be said? It's just speculation and if it's not true, it's incredibly disrespectful. In fact a lot of what you say about other fighters is also disrespectful. Calling people has beens and bad adverts for boxing etc. It really doesn't need to be said.

I don't particularly think Price or Chisora are that good, but if they are fighting, I will talk about it in a manner which looks for the positives. Don't get me wrong, I've not always been this way. I used to slate fighters all the time (I will say that I'm guilty of jumping on Wilder, but I'm working on it), I was set straight and now I try and show a lot more respect. Especially when you consider that they all leave a piece of themselves in the ring each time, and in some cases (more frequently than I'd like) they leave a little too much in there. They do that for our entertainment, who are we to judge.?

30 Oct 2019 00:13:01
Everyone is entitled to their opinions and I stand by all mine, I call bums and hasbeens bums and hasbeens because they are bums and hasbeens, it's the fight game not table tennis, it's brutal, so the comments are brutal and straight to the point, your posts have always been negative, Wilder is easily the second best heavyweight in the division after Fury, my posts are always sent with sincerity and love for boxing, and even a touch of humour sometimes.

30 Oct 2019 10:45:11
I don’t think HSF’s posts have always been negative, quite the opposite imo. It’s clear he is a big fan of the sport.

You, on the other hand, seem to be incredibly bitter.

30 Oct 2019 13:14:12
I'm always positive about boxing, his posts are usually abrupt and ignorant, so I don't know where you you are getting your theory from? It's a hard game, there's no time to soft soap losers, it's about winning myself and Roro disagree over stuff, but we respect each other's opinions, you're turning a good site about boxing into a soap opera.

04 Nov 2019 21:52:26
Hsf imo is a loyal boxing fan and over the years of talking to him he's prob forgotten more about boxing than I know.

TCR, loves his boxing, I love his attitude, he speaks his mind. Long may it continue.



28 Oct 2019 18:22:51
Josh Taylor saying there on tv that he wants the other two belts in the division, also, he wants the top guys every fight.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Oct 2019 23:52:08
What an absolute fantastic performance by Josh Taylor, I had it 117-112 like the 3rd judge, the judge who scored it level should be struck off from officiating any other fight, I've watched this lad from his amateur days and knew that he was going to be one of the all time greats.

Agree2 Disagree0

27 Oct 2019 09:11:30
I had it 115-113 to Taylor. Very close fight but I think the right man won. If you think a judge should be struck off for scoring a close fight a draw, then we should mention that to Eddie Hearn and the BBBofC and make sure you get to pick the judges for Taylor’s next fight. Never mind that Steve Gray is one of the very best in the business. We’ll have him struck off and keep you happy.

27 Oct 2019 11:11:30
Anybody that couldn't see that Taylor won that fight shouldn't even be allowed to judge fights at amateur level, the standard of judging just now is absolutely shocking.

27 Oct 2019 17:08:58
Scoring is subjective TCR. I personally had it the same as Rian, 115-113 to Taylor.

27 Oct 2019 22:00:10
It's the worst era ever for bad judging.

28 Oct 2019 01:25:46
Also Prograis constantly headbutted Taylor's eye and he never even had one point deducted, but as usual a very poor referee pulled Josh up for the use of the shoulder.

28 Oct 2019 10:39:17
Your boy won and all you do is complain.

28 Oct 2019 12:28:15
Pointing out facts of very bad officiating.

28 Oct 2019 17:49:22
No, you are pointing out your opinion. Not the same thing at all.

28 Oct 2019 18:19:57
It's a true opinion, the lad is on local tv now, and his right eye still isn't open after all the vicious headbutts he received without the referee taking any action, so it's not really an opinion it's a fact.

28 Oct 2019 22:34:46
It's a true opinion, so it's not really an opinion it's a fact.

Comedy gold.

29 Oct 2019 10:16:31
It is both, it was my opinion, and with slow motion replays, it was also a fact that he was constantly headbutted.

26 Oct 2019 22:18:52
What a farce of a fight, my gran had a harder punch than Price.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Oct 2019 23:40:54
There's lots you can say against price but lack of a punch isn't one of them.

27 Oct 2019 00:35:56
Did you not watch his powder puff performance against a has been?

27 Oct 2019 08:54:27
Price is not a natural boxer, but he can bang. If you can’t see that, it’s probably because you don’t want to.

27 Oct 2019 11:12:33
He's powder puff.

27 Oct 2019 17:16:18
It's pretty well known that Price is a very hard puncher. He doesn't have the snap power of someone like Wilder, but he has concussive thudding punches - if he lands clean.
Just ask Povetkin what it's like to take a left hook from Price - as he went flying across the ring in their fight, and Povetkin has a decent chin.

In my opinion, Price is too sluggish and immobile to be a world level boxer, plus he just has no punch resistence. He really should consider retiring now, as all but 1 of his 7 losses have been stoppages, with his other loss coming in the form of a retirement through injury.

Maybe he could go into coaching, media work or something along those lines.

27 Oct 2019 22:03:13
He's a shocking advert for boxing, he makes bums like Chisora and Whyte look good.

30 Oct 2019 15:44:01
Have to remember big Price lost against two drug cheats, the first was his big rematch against Thompson. He then had a couple of confidence boosting wins then got knocked out again by drug cheat Teper. I'm not saying this is because price never went on to world level but it certainly didn't help him.

26 Oct 2019 16:55:29
Roro, you about? You will get a link on hesgoals for tonight's boxing, save yourself 20 quid.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Oct 2019 18:11:15
Cheers CR mate working late tonite sadly. Thanks but mate.

26 Oct 2019 18:25:17
No problem mate, I'm sure all the fights will be available for you tomorrow on YouTube.

25 Oct 2019 21:40:33
Sadly Ryan Burnett has had to retire from boxing due to injuries, wish him all the best in the future.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Oct 2019 00:55:38
That's a real shame, he had some talent.

23 Oct 2019 22:00:19
Amazing, I think people might want to see this. ADONIS STEVENSON MOVED TO TEARS AS THE WBC and CHAMPS HONOR HIM

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Oct 2019 09:51:27
I have mixed emotions about Adonis stevenson, it's great to see him doing well but everytime I see him I remember the horrible things he done in his life.
