At the time I laughed at this didn't notice how bad he was.

Glad to see this guy is now big enough to grab the attention of some high level promoters. It's a good interview too.

Alot of these YouTube boxing experts don't really know what they r talking about but I can't say that about boxing squared, he asked good questions there. Good video. What I took from what Higgins said is that the public r craving live sport, so now is the time to cash in and put so fights on ppv which should never be ppv fights. Promoters r losing out on live gate money and to make up for this they will charge the viewers more. I expect a lot more fights to be ppv now.
If boxing comes back it will have such a wider audience that the fights will have to be good or it could damage the sport further. They need to be very careful that they r giving the punters value for their money. Personally I don't think Higgins is capable of this, especially with the names he's batting around for Parker to possibly face.

Yeah those names are a bit meh. It's surprising how quickly he dismissed Michael Hunter too, a little bit unfair considering he's teetering on being a contender. I think Hunter would genuinely cause problems for Parker, even if I think Parker would win the fight.

If I see lucas brown vs parker ppv I'm watching cricket from now on. Lol.

Francis Ngannou wants a peice of Dillian Whyte or any of the 'top' heavyweights.

Haha ok.

Granted, the heavyweight division is different, but look what happened the last time a hyped up MMA fighter walked into a Boxing ring. I also might add, he was against someone who'd been retired for 4 years, nearly double his age, half his size and allegedly feather fisted?

Would be fun to see Wilder vs Ngannou though, that I will admit.

McGregor is starting to sound like paulie Malignaggi, trying to convince people he won afew rounds against floyd. Fact is Mayweather didn't train didn't have a game plan or even decent technique. He even tried to get a bet on for the what round he was going to stop him in and done nothing for the first few rounds. Mayweather that night would have got seriously hurt by any active contender in the welterweight division and McGregor would get seriously hurt by any of them.
Dont know who this big ufc heavyweight is but he's not beating anyone in a boxing match.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2020 15:25:30
Yeah the only thing Ngannou has got on his side is power. He's not overly brilliant technique wise. Plus his gas tank is, suspect at best.

Errol Spence Jr expected to fight Danny Garcia in his 1st fight back. Around September time.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

20 May 2020 07:33:30
I think September is a good time for him to come back. Against a big puncher like Garcia maybe not so good. Spence should win in dominant fashion, but we don't know how he's recovered from his crash.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 May 2020 15:19:59
Apparently he still not cleared to spar yet.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2020 15:44:31
Really? What are they doing arranging a fight with Garcia for then? Are they trying to kill him?!

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2020 11:55:03
It is a dangerous matchup on paper although Garcia hasn't impressed me for afew years now. He does have a good left hook although I think his power was enhanced by the knockout of Khan. Imo he was a better light welterweight and has struggled with the step up but could still be considered a top 10 contender.
Spence is showing he means business with his return, I hoping we could see the Spence vs Crawford fight next year. Sounds like the winner of Spence vs Garcia will face the winner of Pacquiao vs mikey Garcia.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2020 16:01:08
Pacquiao vs Garcia will be a sick fight, assuming age hasn't caught up to Pacquiao. This is the fight that Mikey should have had instead of Spence, it's actually perfect for him because Pacquiao isn't a big welterweight.

Garcia is dangerous in counter punching and trading with people. Spence likes to press forward and also likes to trade punches, which is what makes me think this is the wrong fight to come back with.

If Spence was coming off the back of a muscle or bone injury I wouldn't be so worried. One thing that is commonly said, is that once you've had your lights turned out completely it happens easier the next time.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2020 12:17:16
The reason he can't spar is because he got new teeth. I think if he's cleared to fight then he should fight. I like the choice of Garcia because although he's dangerous I expect Spence to walk through him and if he struggles or even gets beat then Garcia is a big enough name were it wouldn't be a complete disaster.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2020 01:21:22
Tbh I think I'm just overly cautious with Spence jr, simply because he is such a talent.

It would be a massive shame for Boxing if he's beaten by a guy half his level, that's all.

Eddie Hearn and Matchroom r planning on holding boxing contests at his Essex estate. They r thinking of holding Whyte vs Povetkin there. Building some sort of complex on the 15 acre land.

Makes sense that. There won't be hoards of people hanging outside hoping to get in, and it won't cost much. The only thing is traditional venues will lose even more money.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2020 13:06:40
I think it's a good idea. The plans and pictures of how it will look are great.

Watched a show on Netflix called losers. The first episode is about Michael Bentt and his life. Very good watch.

Michael Bentt, he beat Tommy Morrison right?

Agree0 Disagree0

16 May 2020 12:27:14
Yeah he did mate. He never even wanted to turn professional got knocked out in his debut. Now he works in movies as a fight coordinator. He played Sonny Liston in the Ali movie.

This Mike Tyson news has got everyone abit over excited my mates think he's coming back to win the world title lol. I don't think they understand the term exhibition. Lol.

I think some media outlets are going overboard with it too. I've seen many article titles stating he's making a 'comback'.

It will be fun to watch the former baddest man on the planet get back in the ring.

Its madness mate. Tyson might be crazy but he's not stupid.

Fair play to Anthony Joshua giving food parcels away in Nigeria nice thing to do. He is trying to do the whole Muhammad Ali Zaire thing though.
