I have it 114-113 to Golovkin, but I wouldn't be surprised if the judges give it to Derevyanchenko. A very close fight that clearly shows just how much Golovkin has slipped. A trilogy fight with Canelo would be pointless now. I think Canelo will stop him if that happens.


1.) 06 Oct 2019 09:56:42
I had it 115-112 Golovkin, but yes it really wasa close fight that could have gone either way.

2.) 06 Oct 2019 14:45:26
Fancied derevyancheko to win on points even backed him at 6/ 1. Was close fight but had GGG 115-112. Agree with Rian Canelo would destroy GGG now and a 3rd fight is pointless.

3.) 06 Oct 2019 21:41:59
Canelo doesn’t stop GGG even now, his chin is out of this world. Canelo would win on points but we already know as long as the fight goes to the cards Canelo gets the win regardless of if he actually won the fight. GGG would have to stop canelo to win and that wouldn’t happen so a trilogy is pointless either way.

On Golovkin's performance on Saturday night imo, Billy joe and Demetrius both outbox him for 12 rounds and canelo stops him. Undecided about charlo, he's untested.

5.) 07 Oct 2019 18:43:38
I don't think Andrade is that good tbh Roro. BJS definitely outboxes him - but he's at Super-middleweight now and I'm unsure he'll be able to get back down to middleweight as he likes to balloon up in weight between fights.

Dianabol Whyte.

Yeah he can join his mate anabol Joshua.

Thought this might be of interest to some of you.

A History of the Lineal Heavyweight Championship (1885 – 2018):

Great read Rian.

2.) 05 Jan 2019 23:56:27
It's an interesting read. Also worth noting that by the looks of it, Lennox Lewis was the only man to retire while still holding the lineal title. It then took 5 years for a new lineal holder to be announced.

Some good news. Adonis Stevenson has come out of his coma and is speaking.


1.) 18 Dec 2018 12:49:35
Great news Rian.

2.) 18 Dec 2018 19:16:36
Brilliant news. Hope he's alright and not suffered any problems from being in a coma.

3.) 18 Dec 2018 19:38:22
I've read that he has some paralysis down one side but it's unconfirmed.

4.) 21 Dec 2018 14:33:46
Now I'ver read that he's still in the coma so I don't know what to believe.

No doubt Taylor won the first six rounds but the stoppage was terrible. Sorry to disappoint you all, but absolutely no way Taylor wins this tourney based on what I saw tonight.


1.) 04 Nov 2018 10:04:37
You must have been watching a different fight from me Rian, Josh is going to dominate this division for years to come. i agree the ref jumped in a bit quick, but the stoppage was going to come seconds later anyway, Josh is an explosive body puncher, he's like a lower weight Marvin Hagler.

2.) 04 Nov 2018 19:43:17
Martin was really poor, but he wouldn’t have been stopped in the 7th had the ref not jumped in and waived it off after an illegal punch that should have earned Taylor at least a warning and maybe even a point deduction. Taylor has an excellent skill set, but he has to get past Baranchyk and Prograis to be considered the best in the division, and that is asking a lot.

3.) 05 Nov 2018 14:17:46
Martin's knee or glove never touched the canvas Rian, that's how they were legal punches, is there any other rule you want to know mate? lol.

4.) 05 Nov 2018 15:07:35
I’m talking specifically about the left hook to the back of Martin’s head before he threw two more (legit) left hooks to the body as Martin staggered. You thought I was talking about them. I wasn’t.

I don’t think Taylor is a dirty fighter or did it on purpose but It’s still an illegal punch. A few seconds earlier Martin landed a shot that was a bit low and Laughlin warned him which was completely fair.

I think Laughlin is a bit quicker to stop a fight now after all the criticism he took for the Blackwell stoppage. Martin isn’t in Taylor’s class, but let’s say Taylor took a similar shot in the semi or final. I’d like to see him given the chance to see out the round, especially if it’s late in the round.

5.) 05 Nov 2018 22:13:09
There was nothing in it Rian, all sorts of illegal blows go on during fights, you don't get payed overtime in boxing.

6.) 05 Nov 2018 23:24:17
Next time read my post properly or else send me a copy of that weird rule book that no one apart from you has ever seen.

7.) 06 Nov 2018 16:18:45
What are you talking about Rian? I'm talking about the dirty tricks that go on mostly on the blind side of the referees, you should have went to the same Glasgow boxing clubs as me mate, they were a great education for the dark arts of boxing, watch the fight again and watch Martin's head anytime Josh got in close, then tell me if Josh was being over dirty, Martin was also warned for a low blow.

8.) 06 Nov 2018 23:06:20
It's ok James. I wouldn't be objective about him if he was from Dublin.

But I wish Josh and you the very best pal.

What are you on about Rian?

A great boxer in his prime, his best days are long gone. I hope he retires for good this time.

Good news.

"Spence is awake and responding and is listed in stable condition. He didn’t sustain any broken bones or fractures, but does have some facial lacerations. He is expected to make a full recovery. "

He was thrown from the car, so he must be in pretty bad shape. I hope he doesn't have any major spinal or head injuries.

They’re not Irish Roro. They used to be called the Malta boxing commission. Anyway they’re a bunch of clowns who aren’t recognised by any of the major bodies. It’s beyond reckless to be giving licenses to guys in their mid fifties even if they are in great shape.
