Shocking to see O'Connor on his phone when he was judging, he's been involved in some of the most ridiculous scoring ever seen in his career, some downright dodgy decisions as a ref and judge.

Some say it was his score card and pen certainly looked like a mobile phone to me. If it was he should be sacked, probably explains why he give that ridiculous decision on Saturday.

I believe he held a grudge against John McDermotts father, which influenced his decision in the Fury vs McDermott fight, allegedly.

I can't believe that they've cleared him of it.

I know, it is actually disgusting.

In the video clip he is only taking a glance at it, but he shouldn't even have his phone out anyway.
If there was a reason for him having his phone out, then he should pulled out from being a judge.

If you haven't watched the Lomachenko vs Lopez fight, don't bother. Lomachenko didn't even turn up, it's like he was bored of the sport and couldn't be bothered.

Well done to Teofimo, a star is born.

If lomachenko is going to fight at lightweight he has to let his hands go from the start. Waiting until the 8th round before getting going is too late. Fair play to Lopez he boxed really well and stood and fought when he had to.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah Teo was very good and very disciplined. At 23 years of age the kid has a bright future, as long as he doesn't let it get to his head.

Loma should either go back down in weight or retire in my opinion. He hasn't got anything else to achieve really and he's cemented as one of the greatest boxers of all time. The only thing that is left to do, is earn more money. In terms of money, he's allegedly earned around $20 million from all his fights, plus he took a $250,000 paycut to make the Teofimo fight, so he's shown it's not all about the money.
I still want to see the Mikey Garcia fight, but he's staying at 147 which is career suicide for him (sadly. ) .

I agree that lightweight is not lomachenko's natural weight and he should step back down to super featherweight. There r some good matchups for him at that weight like the winner of Davis vs Santa Cruz or Berchelt or Herrring. I think at lightweight they r simply too big for him and hit to hard, although I do wonder how the long lay off has affected Lomo. Not taking anything away from Lopez he fought a great fight just saying I wouldn't mind seeing it again, just to see if Lomo could do anything differently. When he let his hands go in the 8the he won 4 out of 5 rounds imo.
The lack of rematch clause was strange imo almost like Lomo was dismissive of Lopez before. Lopez I think will maybe look for the winner of Campbell vs Garcia or as he said himself step up to 140.

Teofimo Lopez vs Josh Taylor would be a cracking fight.

Reading a good book atm about Journey men boxers and how they end up going down that path. I always knew boxing was corrupt but this book has shown me that it's worse than I expected.
I wonder how many good young fighters have been forced to go down that road and fight as the away fighter becuse they couldn't sell enough tickets? It's a thing that would never happen in most other sports. It's like Barcelona saying to a young messi u can start this weekend but u need to sell 500 tickets. Lol.

I agree mate. Boxing is full of problems at the minute though and something like this, won't get highlighted as a priority (for change), even though it should be.

Its sickening some of the stories mate.

Fury vs Wilder III cancelled? I bloody hope so!

Believable0 Unbelievable0

16 Oct 2020 17:45:45
Apparently the clause for the rematch ran out of date mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Oct 2020 23:02:39
Apparently so, kind of glad to be honest as we already knew the outcome of the fight. Which leaves the door open to Fury vs Joshua. Hearn recently said that he's trying to convince Usyk to hold off until after the first undisputed fight, then they will drop the wbo belt and he will fight for a vacant title because of the rematch clause.

Or it goes ahead without the WBO belt and is no longer an undisputed fight.
At this point I no longer care about undisputed, I just want to see Joshua and Fury fight.

What next for Wilder? A lot of people are thinking he'll retire. I can see it happening to be honest, said a few years ago that he'll retire when he's beaten.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Oct 2020 15:31:32
Personally I don't think we have seen the last of Wilder yet and tbh I hope not. Wilder might not have much boxing ability but his knockout punch was exciting to watch. I would like to see Wilder change trainers and his whole camp. Join someone like Able Sanchez and use 2021 to work with him against less than elite fighters.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Oct 2020 16:40:27
Maybe he will take Mayweather's offer.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Oct 2020 16:48:03
Maybe but at 35 years of age (as of October 22nd) he's not going to improve much, if at all.
Also, going against less than elite fighters is all he's done, Fury aside. So in my opinion, it's got to be against someone who is a known quantity, a well established fighter who has names on his record. Someone like Joeseph Parker, Andy Ruiz or Michael Hunter. He can't fight sub-par fighters any more, not if he wants to be taken seriously.

Agree0 Disagree0

I felt Haye was a bit over the top with what was he was saying about Gorman.
Yes the man was overweight and shouldn't have gone the distance, but to publicly smash him like that was cruel.

Gorman has apparently been through a really torrid time in the last 18 months, he ballooned up in weight to over 350lbs and got down to 272 lbs for the fight - which I think is bloody impressive to be honest.

Oh and surprise surprise the main event was a complete mismatch. I am actually done with Frank Warren events.

Yeah agree mate as u say it's his first fight back from a bad spell.

Joeseph Parker vs Junior Fa for December 11th.

It's the first time that two top 10 ranked fighters from New Zealand have faced each other on home soil, and it's been dubbed as 'New Zealands fight of the century'.
They've got history as they fought 4 times in the AM's with 2 victories each.

I think Parker should win, perhaps by a late stoppage but it should be a good fight!

Believable0 Unbelievable0

Tbh I havnt seen much of Junior Fa but this fight sort of reminds me of AJ vs Whyte, with all the history between them.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Oct 2020 16:42:16
Buatsi did not look good tonight, even though he got the stoppage. Calic apparently had a broken jaw which explains the towel coming when it did.

Hopefully that was just because he was a bit rusty.

Chantelle Cameron put on a clinic in her fight, she'll do well throughout her career based on that performance.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

Was a lot to like about that Buatsi performance although he was hit too many times. wouldn't get away with that against the champions. Was good fight enjoyed it.

Really hope McKenna beats O'hara Davis tonight.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

Me too, he's such a moron. But McKenna is trying so hard to be McGregor. Did you see his promo on twitter?

Soooo cringe!

The cars and blonde hair? Lol I seen it on the news earlier mate. Lol plonker. Like him but he reminds me of my older brother maybe that's the Everton connection though cause Bellew does aswel lol.

Damn it, oh well. They both looked mediocre to be fair.

Alvarez to sign new deal worth 20mil a fight. Hope he fights Smith or Billy joe this year. Could be a good end to the year for boxing.

This is something I don't understand, why are the top fighters refusing to take less money? These guys are not short of cash, they have good sponsors backing them and other revenue streams in most cases.

Not only that, but if Canelo doesn't accept the revised offer and reignites his court case, he's going to financially ruin DAZN and put a very large roster of fighters in limbo. The bigger names will be fine, but the guys who aren't a big draw or aren't particularly exciting will struggle.

For the good of Boxing Canelo should take the deal, it would set an example and others would hopefully follow suit because of it.
I don't normally advocate for professional fighters to get less money, but for the good of the sport they have to right now.

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Sep 2020 13:10:19
Apparently he's entitled to his 35mil a fight but for the good of his own career I hope he signs the deal. he's 30 years of age now and arguably in his prime wouldn't want to waste a year or two.

Usyk vs Chisora Halloween night. Should be good scrap.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

25 Sep 2020 12:13:25
I can see Usyk giving Chisora a real boxing lesson. Del has always struggled with opponents who have good footwork and good fundamentals, he's also openly admitted he doesn't like facing southpaws.

I don't give Chisora much of a chance personally.

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Sep 2020 13:12:11
I agree I think Usyk could stop Del boy late just by sheer volume of punches. Although what did worry me about Usyk was that Witherspoon landed 21 punches against him and his face was a bit of a mess, if Chisora traps him and is able to unload then he could be in trouble.

Agree0 Disagree1
