Did you hear that WBC president Sulaiman wants to create a new division called 'Bridgerweight', a division capped at 224 pounds in between Cruiserweight and Heavyweight?
I have mixed thoughts on it. The name is ridiculous and it does dilute the sport even more, this will be boxing's 18th weight class. Fighters will have the choice to compete at Heavyweight or this new weight class if they weigh lighter than 224lbs. WBC say it's in the interest of safety to introduce this and this does make sense compared to the amount of different weight classes there are at the lower weights, although the main reason for its introduction is probably to provide the WBC with another platform to showcase that green belt and line its pockets.
I do think it will provide a lot of smaller heavyweights with an opportunity to fight for or win a world title that they would never get at heavyweight. Fighters like Hughie Fury imo r simply to small to ever do anything in your heavyweight division although maybe he's just not good enough. Be interesting to see if the new division takes off and what fighters opt to participate in it.

Yeah this has been talked about for a while and has even been made official as far as I'm aware
wbcboxing.com/en/bridgerweight/

I have mixed feelings about it too mate. On one hand I think it's a good idea because there is quite a gap between the size of some heavyweights. Also it can aid with cruiserweights making the jump to heavyweight as a stepping stone division.

On the other hand it's just a way for the WBC to get more sanctioning fees and to give them more power within Boxing.

I think you're mistaken about Hughie Fury mate, he's regularly over 230 lbs and is 6'6". The likes of Usyk, Babic, Hunter and Gassiev would be perfect for the division, as they either look out of shape or lose a lot of speed when they go above 220.


2.) 23 Jan 2021 23:40:29
Yeah agree mate it's very interesting. My point on Hughie is he is never going to win a world title at heavyweight, maybe I should of said he doesn't hit hard enough to trouble the big men. Although at 224 the night before what will most these men be entering the ring? 240,250 maybe? I see the positives of of it mate tbh give fighters an opportunity but could be seen as the poor mans heavyweight?

With Fury vs AJ most likely going to Dubai and Texas getting a lot more big US fights, have we seen the end of Vegas as the top destination for big fights?


1.) 16 Jan 2021 03:32:55
Maybe but I doubt it. The casinos make so much money from the fights.


2.) 17 Jan 2021 19:36:26
They do that's true, although with the amount of money the Middle East is throwing at fighters these days and the talented crop coming out of Texas with their huge venues could take a lot of the bigger fights in the coming years.

Kovalev failed drugs test.


1.) 14 Jan 2021 22:37:19
Synthetic testosterone. I think he realised he's done and needed some help.

Having said that, have you see his rap sheet in recent years?

He punched a woman and kicked her dog because she rebuffed his advances and plead guilty to the offence (2020).
Arrested for driving under the influence (2019).
Kicked off a plane for sexually harrassing someone (2020).
Caught hosting an illegal Canelo vs Smith stream (2020).

I heard that he has a bit of a drinking issue, but I didn't realise he was like that lol.


2.) 15 Jan 2021 09:37:41
He seems to have badly went off the rails. He did not seem to be like that when he first came on the scene. GBP owed him a fight worth 2.5million because of the canelo fight, that's gone now too just like his career.

Other than fury vs AJ, What fights do you what to see in 2021?
Spence vs Crawford is the standout but I want to see Whyte vs Wilder.


1.) 28 Dec 2020 00:12:06
Off the top of my head:

Joshua vs Fury - I think Fury wins personally, but not as easily as many think. Wouldn't surprise me if Fury had to get up off the canvas to win.

Crawford vs Spence - This is a genuine 50/ 50, I have no idea how this will end. Spence has the resume that suggests he will win, but Crawford is special.

Lopez vs Lomachenko II - I want to see if Teo is real, Loma will come back with a much more aggressive game plan and it will be interesting to see if Teo can combat it.

Davis vs Haney - This won't happen because Floyd won't let it happen. But I think Haney wins vs points.

Whyte vs Ortiz (should he beat Povetkin/ it fall through) - Ortiz has only fought Wilder but he can definitely box, this would probably end up being a good fight and I doubt it would go the distance. 50/ 50 imo.

Joyce vs Usyk - Usyk made a fool of Joyce in the WBS over 5 rounds, but it would be interesting to see how it would pan out over 12. I think Joyce may well stop Usyk.

On Wilder, I think he's done and good riddance to be honest with you. The guy held the WBC belt hostage for 4 years, came out with disgusting statements about wanting 'to catch a body', accused anyone and everyone of being against him in the Fury rematch and to top it all off, he's not even very good. I'm done with this utter moron.


2.) 28 Dec 2020 12:49:18
I like Joshua but a lot of the time he does my head in. He takes too much of the money from sky sports boxing and when he fights his undercard shows this. They r terrible. Plus all that dressing as member of the black Panthers and telling people to not shop in certain stores then telling anyone who criticized him to go f**k themselves, he went down in my eyes. I think Fury beats him and maybe even stops him late as Joshua runs out of steam.
I'd love to see Davis vs Lopez although I think Lopez would be too big.
Spence vs Crawford is good scrap like u said a 50/ 50. I would like to see that fight happen at end of year, think it's a fight that will only get bigger over time. Think Spence is too big wins close spilt decision although I'm cheering on Crawford, even if his Ma does piss me off lol.
The whyte vs Wilder match, the reason I want to see that is because the two of them do some talking. And it's mostly rubbish they talk all the time. I like Whyte but at the same time he annoys me because he's been played by Eddie Hearn and now he's in limbo. Povetkin prob knock him out again then he's really in trouble.
In the domestic scene I'd love to see Joshua Buatsi win a world title and then face Callum Smith at light heavy.


3.) 29 Dec 2020 18:33:41
I usually pick a side but when it comes to Crawford vs Spence, I will just sit back as a neutral and enjoy it.

Would like to see Buatsi against Kovalev or something before he goes for a world title. I say Kovalev as he currently has no title and is fading fast, but he's still good enough to beat prospects who aren't ready to step up yet. However, Kovalev is scheduled to fight 6-0 (5 KO) Bektemir Melikuziev, so maybe he's already joined the Journeyman club.


4.) 30 Dec 2020 18:39:01
Off the canvas? lol 😂.


5.) 30 Dec 2020 19:40:39
Yes, he's been down a few times in his career and Joshua is very good. Stop fanboying Fury and look at it objectively.


6.) 02 Jan 2021 17:34:28
Fury will school him, watch for some one handed showboating.

Merry Christmas to all. Hope you all have a great time and stay safe.


1.) 26 Dec 2020 01:35:09
Merry Christmas bud.

Was a good year for Boxing despite the C.V., some excellent fights and huge upsets. Let's hope for an even better 2021.

Spence Oliver said today that Whyte v Povetkin is mostly likely going to happen outside the UK, possibly Monaco or Gibraltar.

Hope they announce it soon mate. WBO had to do that imo to have any credibility.

I hope Wilder takes Martin's head off tbh, Wilder is delusional but your man Martin was something else. Lol.
