Looks like it's nearly there mate although I'll wait for both fighters to sign before I'm 100% confident.
If there was ever a fight made for Wembley this is it, hope they get the 2nd one there.
Also, hope the chasing pack don't hang around and wait for Fury or Joshua. Afew good match ups could be made between Wilder, Whyte, Usyk, Joyce, Ruiz Jr etc.

Oh never mind, Wilder is STILL getting in the way. I really wish he'd just f. off already!

Agree0 Disagree0

Why do Hearn and now Fury keep jumping the gun? Maybe Bob Arum knew something we didn't all along. They r going to have to give Wilder bucket loads to step aside and that's even if he wants to step aside. Personally I don't think he will step aside, think he will take the Fury fight now. That's his chance for a return to the limelight, he not pass that to Aj and Fury.

Agree0 Disagree0

From what Arum said today it seems its going to be Fury v Wilder III July 24th.

Glad Saunders got his mouth shut, oh and his eye.

I had Canelo 2 rounds up at the time of stoppage. Its hard to see anyone beating him at super middleweight, although imo the way to do it is to push him back and put him on the back foot (easier said than done I know) .
Was a big ask for Saunders and he was doing alright but ultimately Canelo is just to strong at that weight. Think it was the right move pulling him out.

Agree0 Disagree0

Bah I hate being right >_.

Watched it again when I got home from work on my TV. Had it all square at time of stoppage. Canelo prob would have went on to stop him anyway if he hadn't of landed that punch.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 May 2021 19:42:05
I had it 4-4 after Round 8. I even had BJS up 4-3 after Round 7, so up until that devastating uppercut I had BJS in front.

He was performing brilliantly, then that punch landed. I actually thought BJS was starting to take over and Canelo was looking a little frustrated, then bang. Can't say he wasn't warned, that uppercut was thrown with intent at least twice in every previous round.

He's not unbeatable, Canelo. It'll just take a special performance. Personally, I think Billy Joe deserves a rematch if he wants it.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 May 2021 22:54:23
Steve I've been thinking the same mate. He's not unbeatable there is just no one out there atm can beat him if that makes sense. Canelo is class don't get me wrong and you've got to have all the attributes to beat him but him. But that's the only time in the last 5 years and thought he's beatable.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 May 2021 14:08:01
Everything Canelo does is 8/ 10.
Head movement, general defense, punch variety, punch selection, punching power, ring IQ, everything.

The problem is that he's arguably the biggest star in Boxing and you can only win one way against him, knock him out. He's only ever been hurt badly once, all the way back in 2010 against Jose Miguel Cotto. Since then he has improved exponentially year after year, and now I just can't see any of the current top guys knocking him out.

Even at Light Heavyweight, I don't see Bivol or Beterbiev stopping him. In fact I think it's more likely he will stop them, as they don't really move their head.

Agree0 Disagree0

Has anyone seen Fury's recent comments about Eddie Hearn?

I've got a funny feeling we may see Tyson Fury sign with Hearn after the AJ fight.

Talk of Canelo vs Saunders being cancelled as Saunders isn't happy with the small ring (current 18 sq ft, wants 24 sq ft) .

I assume it's just mind games (like in Klitschko vs Fury) but it's going around at the minute.

The more I think about it I think it's going to be a close fight. I think Canelo will win but he could be made to miss at times. Saunders is tough enough to make it interesting imo.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 May 2021 12:22:25
I've said this is going to be a close fight for a long time, I've always maintained that if anyone can give Canelo problems at MW or SMW then it's Billy Joe Saunders but, the closer it gets to fight night the more I just think that Canelo will be too quick, too smart and too powerful and BJS will end up getting stopped. I reckon a good result for BJS would be lasting the distance.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 May 2021 21:53:29
Hmmm.
I really want Saunders to win. I've made no secret of my distain for the way that Canelo gifted everything, even when he fought Floyd he somehow managed to have a scorecard at 114-114.
I suspect that even if Saunders out boxes him for 12 rounds, it'll be a draw or a majority or split in Canelos favour. But I don't think Saunders will see the 12th round, I think Canelo will stop him with a body shot between 8 and 10.

Really hope I'm wrong.

Chisora Vs Parker was a scrapy but entertaining fight. Fight of two halves and hard to score. I had a draw 115 apiece. I take it that New Zealand judge that only give Chisora three rounds doesn't score body shots.

02 May 2021 15:42:14
Yeah I had it a draw too, was fun and seeing Parker down after 7 seconds was a bit of a shock lol.

Rest of the card was entertaining. Taylor vs Johas was a hell of a scrap.

Eubank is just shockingly bad, his footwork is the worst I've seen at 'world level'.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 May 2021 16:49:28
Taylor is on the slide abit and I think because of that all her fights will be like that. Was good fight.

I like Eubank Jr. He's entertaining although your right about his footwork it's so slow. He's too keen to have a tear up. Great jab when he wants to use it.

Felt sorry for James Tennyson. My brother was talking to his Grandad last month and he told him he was chief support.

Agree0 Disagree0

There looks to be a lot of pent up 'C.V. anger' in the crowds for Ruiz vs Arreola. Fights and brawls happening all over.

This could get abandoned.

Will watch later tonight. Couldn't stay up as working today.

The fight was good, Ruiz got dropped in round 2 and also hurt twice in round 3. He doesn't look like he can take punches without the weight.

Agree0 Disagree0

Fair play to Sunny Edwards last night. I've always found him a very honest fighter, was impressed last night by his toughness and boxing skills.

Really looking forward to Bentley Vs Cash tonight. Great British match-up. Really hard to pick a winner but I'm going for Bentley on points. Should be a cracker.

Good stoppage from the ref, he was out on his feet.

What at the David Adeleye result though? Sokolowski won that fight hands down.

See decisions like that all to often mate. Stinks.

Nice read mate. Sonny Liston was a much maligned character, his death was also very strange.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2021 23:06:15
Thanks mate. Your right about his death. Reading a book atm about that called 'The Murder Of Sonny Liston'. Its good read mate.

Watching DAZN for the first time live tonight. Got Nick halling and Alex Arthur doing commentary. Is this normal?
