Hope Frampton came make history tomorrow night. he's giving away all the advantages to Herring although I think Carl is a far better fighter than him. What does worry me is that I think Carl's best days r behind him, although if he anywhere near his best he wins imo. Go Carl to have good start and then as usual to fade and Herring to come on strong down the stretch. Close points win for Frampton imo.

Unfortunate for Frampton, it looked like he was starting to turn the fight around in the 4th and the 5th until he got dropped.
Second knockdown was a heavy one, fight should have been stopped then in my opinion.

He beat Carl up on the outside and on the inside. Carl's had great career. Fair play to both men.

Awful fight, stylistically, for Frampton. He's a boxer, not a pressure fighter. Doesn't have it in his locker to march forward and take one to land one, which is what was required. He wouldn't do that in his prime, let alone at 34. Couldn't get close and when he upped it to the required tempo he got caught. It wasn't his kind of fight at all.

That's true Frampton has never been a rough and tough come forward pressure fighter, although I don't believe that that tactic would have worked against Herring as Herring is the better inside fighter of the two.
I would have liked Frampton to use his jab a lot more both to the body and then double and triple it up to the head and come in behind that. He needed to use a lot more feints to make Herring react then Frampton could counter or time Herring with the right hand.
I don't want to take anything away from Herring though, he won fair and square and even a prime Frampton would have struggled against a boxer of his size and skills.

Apparently Hearn has approached the UK government about the possibility of holding Fury v Joshua at Wembley. Abit of wishful thinking as they would need a maximum attendance to make it work.

I don't know, the Government are trying to push for larger crowds for the Euros, we could yet see Joshua vs Fury in the UK. God damn, I would have to get a ticket no matter the cost.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Mar 2021 12:45:24
Surely it can't be in the UK? Wouldn't be surprised if it's lip-service on Hearn's part, just to show that they asked and tried.

99.9% sure this one is going to Asia.

The Saudis want it but because of the heat in the summer they want it in the winter. Hearn desperate for it in the summer and is asking around. If they can't get the money elsewhere then why not do it in Wembley but again they would need a full house. Imo its happening in Saudi Arabia in the winter time.

With the titles tied up for the foreseeable future I'd like to see a super 6 style tournament in the heavyweight division. Whyte, Ruiz Jr, Wilder, Joyce, Usyk and Parker (if he beats Chisora) . Then we can determine who has the right to be called the third best heavyweight in the world and true challenger to winner of Fury v Joshua. I don't think the mandatory position some of them hold should matter because after Fury and AJ is sorted the belts will be broken up, so there will be a lot more opportunities for a title shot. Also think it's the best way for the heavyweights in that position to make the most doe and enhance their reputation.

Could be interesting, but I would omit Wilder from that list as he's retired and won't fight again, he just hasn't and won't publicly announce it.

In his place I'd put one of Michael Hunter, Efe Ajagba, Filip Hrgovic or Tony Yoka.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Mar 2021 12:47:13
Hunter should certainly be in that mix. Not as big or powerful but a great chin, good ability and excellent work rate. Got bossed by Usyk at Cruiserweight but might actually fair better against the bigger boys with his work-rate, handspeed and movement.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Mar 2021 13:29:58
Fair play to Whyte he boxed well and his Jab was excellent. What I liked was his interview after when he said he shouldn't have lost the first time. He knows how much that lost has set him back both in terms of his title shot and credibility. Until Fury and Aj is sorted out he's going to have to wait and that's if he's made mandatory again. Would like to see him fight Wilder now so they can end their feud once and for all. But fair play to Whyte anyway. Was good win.

I ain’t whyte's biggest fan to be honest respect him for getting in the ring but everything about him annoys me.
He will never beat fury or AJ as he is not good enough and I think if wilder lands on him it’s goodnight Vienna as well.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Mar 2021 14:38:20
I agree. I would say most people would have AJ and Fury 1 and 2 and most would have Wilder number 3 still. I think Whyte is in that bracket alongside Ruiz, Usyk, Parker, Joyce and one or two others. don't think it's a foregone conclusion that Wilder beats him I just think Wilder would land first and knock him out. Although I also think Wilder could land on Joshua first and do the same to him.
With Fury and AJ tied up I hope the chasing pack forget about the mandatories and realise that if they fight each other they can make the most doe and get public demand on their side for the winner of Fury and AJ.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Mar 2021 22:13:39
Whyte was looking to make a point tonight. People were saying he's done and got no chin etc. The man can fight and nearly always makes it entertaining.

He's more than capable of beating either Joshua or Fury. He's already shown he can hurt Joshua and we know AJ will just brawl with him as they love to hurt each other, a genuine rivalry. With Fury it's a little more complicated. Fury at the moment is being lifted on a pedastal as the greatest thing since sliced bread. He is the number 1 heavyweight in the world right now, but he too has his flaws and isn't as durable as people make out either, he's been dropped by non-punchers and men much smaller than him.

Whyte will get beaten again at some point, probably knocked out, but there isn't a fighter out there that would willingly want to fight this man unless they have to or the money is excellent, he is a problem for anyone.

I am probably one of the few that don't rate Wilder in the top 3 lol. He's only got a right hand, no footwork, no ring generalship, no boxing IQ and thinks he's Gods gift to Boxing. He's a bellend at best.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Mar 2021 12:42:28
You're not alone, hsf. Wilder would barely make my top 5. As you say, zero boxing ability and a lethal right hand. He held that belt hostage for far too long. Every fight he's ever had against a top 20-30 heavyweight he's been outboxed until he lands. He's always got a puncher's chance against anyone but that ain't enough to consistently beat the best and be the best.

Whyte would outbox him all night and if he's aggressive, like Fury, there's every chance he'll stop him. Just got to avoid that right hand!

I seen it mentioned on here b4 and thought it was a good idea. The live chat. Ed, do u think that if we got enough people up for it we could have a live chat?

{Ed033's Note - How many is enough people?

{Ed033's Note - ok

Lol cheers ed. We see if anyone else is interested on this page, see if we can get the numbers up.

I am banned from the live chats. I think it's because I lost my temper with the horrendous amount of the negativity coming from the Liverpool fans in the live chat.

I am also banned from the movie site, but I have no idea why lol. I tried to log into it the other day after clearing my cookies and stuff and it said I'm banned.

{Ed033's Note - Ok, i unbanned username hsf from the Liverpool Live Chat, no one is currently banned on the Boxing Live Chat.

Please try the movie site again, maybe your previous IP address was blocked, but hsf username is not blocked from the movie site.

Lol. The liverpool live chat can be annoying at times.
Was thinking instead of doing live chat during a fight what about doing it the night b4 or night night? I'd miss half the fight trying to type on here if it was during it.

Thanks Ed, much appreciated. Movie site seems to be fine now.

Just chat between rounds Roro. I'm not watching the fight tonight as I've got other things to do, but will keep an eye on the result.

25 Mar 2021 08:41:02
Whyte used to make me laugh the odd time now he's just annoying and delusional. Hope Povetkin flattens him again. Not be watching live, will get highlights off YouTube after.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

25 Mar 2021 15:00:26
He comes to fight, his fights are entertaining and he fights decent opposition. I hope he gets revenge on Povetkin.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Mar 2021 23:07:36
Like the first it's hard to pick a winner. Povetkin's best days certainly behind him but he still has that moment of class to change any fight. Think whyte will start a lot slower which could play into Povetkin's hands.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Mar 2021 21:15:52
Looks like Frampton v Herring to be shown on YouTube. Not getting picked up by British tv. Bt have a week still to get a deal done but there isn't even any talk of it.

Not going to go on about the Chisora and Parker ppv because people know how I feel about that now and I don't want to sound like a broken record. I just say I'm completely turned off by sky sports boxing now.

There is a lot of name recognition in the card, but the majority of the fights are mismatches on paper. This is Boxing though, so anything can happen I guess.

After watching Parker vs Fa, I wouldn't be surprised if Chisora came away with the win, but Parker has a new trainer and may decide to actually be aggressive for a change.
Parker has a solid chin and although I don't advocate blocking punches with your face, sometimes you have to trade and I think Chisora is someone you need to trade blows with. His durability is waning, as he's been hurt quite easily by fairly nothing punches recently, he was all over the place in round 7 against Usyk, Whyte made him do the stanky leg in the first round of their rematch with a jab then flatlined him in the 11th, Price had Chisora buzzed in their fight at the end of the 2nd round.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Mar 2021 11:40:02
I see it similar to the Whyte vs Parker fight. A slug fest, with both men visiting the Canvas. Although Parker being the fresher of the two I see him being more busy down the stretch and winning a tight SD. Not impressed by Parker tbh. As u say Fa should have beat him and he was also gifted a victory over Ruiz Jr. Del boy is what he is. Abit of a gatekeeper European level at best.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Mar 2021 15:08:42
I can't see Parker going down to be honest, he only went down against Whyte because he was concussed from the head clash.

My problem with Parker is he's so one-dimensional and runs out of idea's quickly. But against Chisora that shouldn't be the case, Chisora doesn't really know how to spoil he just knows how to come forward and let his hands go, so Parker won't have to worry about Chisora making it a hug fest.

Also something I forgot to consider before, Parker had double surgery on his elbows in early December. and was grimacing at the press conference when folding his arms.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Mar 2021 17:53:35
Be good scrap but no real interest tbh mate. Both levels below the top in the division. It's not the fault of the fighters, if this was a normal fight night I'd be intrested and happy to watch. Ppv just completely puts me off. But again that's not the boxers fault, let the casuals have this one.
