What's your predictions for Usyk v Joshua on Saturday?
I'm going Usyk to win between rounds 7-9.

It won't go the distance. I want AJ to get it done but can see an Usyk stoppage late on.


2.) 15 Aug 2022 18:37:03
I think a lot of it depends on Usyk. We know how good he is but he's always had a clear head when he's fought and this time, he doesn't.

He's probably constantly thinking about his homeland and the Russian invasion, he's likely lost and still losing friends and/or family members. There is a chance that he could let his emotions get in the way of the fight, I don't expect it to be that way but there is a chance.

Also worth mentioning that AJ does adjust well after losing. He's got a smart team around him and he has a high learning level, he'll have seen that Usyk didn't like those body shots and will target the body more this fight.

I think Usyk on points again, but I think it'll be a much closer fight.

Eubank Jr v conor Benn, what's your thoughts?

Think only thing Benn can lose really is pride. Even if Eubank stops him or beats him up, he can just return to 147 have confidence building win and then he's back in the same position he's in now in that division. Eubank again is more pride at stake, cause he doesn't seem interested in fighting the champions in his own 160 division, so not much other than pride on the line here for both imo.

On the fight itself I think eubank if he's not weight drained will just be to big and experienced for Benn. Think Eubank of afew years ago when he just threw combinations would probably have stopped Benn but now under RJJ he seems more methodical in his approach. Think it will more than likely go the distance and they could possibly have a rematch next year, but also have a feeling that Eubank will try to stop Benn in the same round his dad stopped Nigel so could have sneaky bet on Eubank round 11.

Sorry Eubank snr stopped Nigel Benn in round 9.


2.) 13 Aug 2022 15:10:03
Really stupid fight for Benn to take. Could end up like Brooke.


3.) 15 Aug 2022 15:59:55
I'm hopeful that it'll be a right tear up. I think both guys have good chins and good engines, and whilst Eubank Jnr is the bigger man he's not really a massive puncher, more a volume puncher.

I think Eubank Jnr maybe wins by late stoppage or on points but I don't think either man will be KO'd.

I'm going to have a cheeky few quid on the draw. Always good odds and wouldn't surprise me to see this one fixed up for another go.


4.) 15 Aug 2022 18:38:17
Are you sure Benn's chin is that good mate? He's been dropped a few times.


5.) 16 Aug 2022 18:44:17
I don't think getting dropped means you're chinny. You can get put down without being hurt and I think whenever I've seen Benn put down (Peynaud?) he didn't look particularly hurt. Peynaud hit him with good shots too.

Carl Froch was knocked down twice :)

Your wee man Ben Whittaker is a bit of a cockhead.

1.) 01 Aug 2022 15:58:45
Hahaha.

Yea, bit too much showboating. He'll learn that boxing fans don't really like to see too much of that. Very disrespectful.

He looks a real talent though. Hopefully not another Josh Kelly.


2.) 02 Aug 2022 18:45:09
He is very talented. He's like marmite. Tbf hate him or love him people will watch.

What about CBS v Chamberlain? It's great when a domestic dust-up lives up to the hype. Two tough men. Cruiserweight division is hotting up.


3.) 15 Aug 2022 15:56:14
Yea, CBS is tough but a bit limited. Might get a World title if he gets the right match up. can't see him beating any of the elite though.

Nick ball is a bull, needs to sort that jab out and he could be very good.

Big blow for Dazn that Usyk V Joshua II is on Sky sports. Puts a spanner in the works for Dazns box office model.

Only for UK viewers. Sky Sports won the bid to show the fight in the UK, DAZN will be showing coverage to the rest of the World.

I'd imagine Sky Sports paid a healthy sum to get the PPV rights as a one-off, which will add to the revenue/purse for the fight/fighters.


2.) 13 Jul 2022 11:54:56
28mil sky paid for the UK tv rights. Who gets what globally hasn't been decided yet. The UK is the main market for this fight, u think it going to do good numbers in America at midday? There is no uptake for the fighter's here. Matchroom sold the rights to the Saudis who sold them to Sky. Its up to Sky to get their money back from ppv sales.

It's pretty common knowledge that DAZN have been trying to break into the UK market and wanted to use this fight to boost subscribers. They made this big announcement that Aj was exclusive to DAZN, give him shares in the company, a massive bonus and 10 fight contract, all of that was to boost their ppv model. He's officially the face of DAZN boxing who biggest fight of his career isn't on Dazn. How many Aj fans have signed up to DAZN only to realise now their favourite fighter isn't even on Dazn.
They failed to get the Champions league rights, premier league rights, buy Bt sports this is another kick in the teeth for their expansion.

Aj wins they r quids in, he loses and they r basing their ppv business on a fighter who has just lost back to back, OK they have the Canelo but he's signed on a fight by fight basis or 2 fight deal. Who's fights are also shown for free in Mexico. Look at the state they got into with canelo and the contract they agreed with Goldenboy.

Dazn can't keep throwing endless barrels of money into matchrooms bank account for little return. They have cut the funding recently and are taking a massive risk not securing the rights for this fight.


3.) 14 Jul 2022 14:02:17
Sorry, I was under the impression that the AJ-Usyk fight will be shown on Sky Sports PPV and to DAZN subscribers as well, is this not the case? : /


4.) 14 Jul 2022 19:11:45
No need to say sorry to me mate, if anything I should apologise to u. After reading my post back I realise I came across as a bit rude, which certainly wasn't my intention bud.

It is confusing this Aj Dazn agreement, because they announced the other weekb that Aj was exclusive to Dazn but they didn't mention that that arrangement didn't include the Usyk rematch. To make the fight happen matchroom sold all the tv rights to the Saudis. Sky bought the UK rights and as far as I'm aware the international rights are still to be decided. But like I said b4 the market for this fight is the UK. Sky done 700 thousand buys for the first fight and r confident of going close to a million buys this time. Will not be shown on Dazn in the UK.

Now Dazn still might get the international rights but it does nothing for their ppv model as again the main market is the UK. And as Eddie hearn has said Aj will never fight on Dazn normal subscription model, he will always be ppv. Which was their plan to launch in the UK. Dazn will always do well internationally as a company because they have the football rights in a lot of countries but atm all they offer to UK subscribers is matchroom boxing.

I think Dazn could suffer the same way sky suffered imo with being tied down to one promoter. They need a marquee name signed down long term. No guarantee with Canelo as he doesn't sign long term. They seem to be putting all their eggs in the Joshua basket. Which I can't see working either, OK their subscription numbers will increase especially if he wins, but matchroom aren't blessed with lot of quality heavyweights to call on. Can't see Frank letting Joyce, Dubios even fury go on Dazn and even if it's a cross platform production with bt.

All could change though if the rumours r correct and they manage to make and get Eubank Jr v Conor Benn. Then they would certainly gatecrash the Uk ppv scene.

Bloody hell, lol, it's quite convoluted then.

I, like many boxing fans, have a dislike for Eddie Hearn but I'm still hoping he takes off in the US, with or without DAZN, and makes a success of it.

And you never came across as rude, mate. You have to do a lot better than that to offend me :)


6.) 18 Jul 2022 20:36:41
Me too buddy. I just want to see the best fights. The politics in boxing annoys me mate.
