Say what you want about Floyd, say what you like about his style or the people he associates himself with. The one thing people can not say against him, is his dedication to his craft.

There are a few in this day and age that could really learn from Floyd's dedication.


2.) 29 Jul 2020 13:43:37
Personally I think a lot of what Floyd does is for the cameras. he's played that bad boy image perfectly. Love him or hate him you would still pay to watch his fights.

Tonight the first time I've been able to sit a watch a night of boxing since all this the virus stuff started. It's strange. Enjoying it though.


1.) 27 Jul 2020 02:10:05
That knockout from Estrada on Adkins on DAZN was a disgrace. Why those two were sanctioned to fight each other is beyond me.


2.) 29 Jul 2020 13:45:59
Was hard to watch that match. She was terrified.

Tyson vs Roy Jones then what yous think? People saying it's just an exhibition but people get knocked out in exhibitions all the time. Floyd Mayweather vs that Japanese lad last year was an exhibition and he got knocked out.
On the fight itself there is bad blood there. This imo will get heated. That's why I would have preferred of it was Tyson Fury vs Tyson because Fury would have made it an exhibition by fooling around. Roy jones and Iron Mike be trying to hurt each other.


1.) 25 Jul 2020 22:15:27
At 54 and 51 respectively, I don't see how they can maintain an actual fight for the scheduled 8 rounds.
Roy could maybe do it because he's stayed active. But Mike has only recently started training again, plus he's been smoking copious amounts of Cannabis.

Also the commission that licensed the fight, has said that the referee is under strict instructions to stop the fight, if it becomes more than an exhibition.


2.) 26 Jul 2020 09:55:29
With no fans in attendance they will be able to control it which is good. Fans will pay to see it although if it is not entertaining and doesn't resemble some sort of actual fight then they won't pay again. That's why imo this will be a one off.


3.) 31 Jul 2020 23:17:18
Glorified exhibition.

Fury vs Wilder penciled in for Dec 19th at Raiders stadium with limited crowd. Bob Arum just said it on the radio.


1.) 11 Jul 2020 00:49:10
Yeah OK then. Not with America breaking the virus case records daily.

It won't be in the US with a crowd until next year at least. We will have crowds way before America does, so why not do it here in the UK?


2.) 11 Jul 2020 11:00:49
Yeah cases on the rise again in Vegas linked to indoor casinos.

Think they r looking at America to maximize their ppv money. We know how much the yanks pay and that fight will always sell well in the uk no matter what time of the night it's at or where it is. England has only recently starting easing restrictions so in afew weeks they could be in the same situation at America. An outdoor arena in Dec with limited spectators could possibly work depending on the situation at the time.
Also Fury doesn't have an UK boxing licence.


3.) 11 Jul 2020 12:47:16
I think our situation is very different in the UK to America.

Looking at Worldometer's numbers, America is having 60,000-75,000 cases a day nation wide, with many states having much higher daily cases than most countries in Europe at their peak.

We've been easing the lockdown since around Easter (I include the ridiculous beach crowding as easing of lockdown on Easter weekend) and our daily cases continue to drop, so I'm quite confident we're on the right track and we'll open up to crowds and things by the end of this year.

You are right, the fight sells in the UK no matter what time it's scheduled for. But Fury doesn't need a UK license to fight here, David Haye and Chisora fought on a license from Luxembourg at the West Ham stadium lol.


4.) 11 Jul 2020 14:58:41
Have to take into consideration the size of them states. California has over 30 million alone.

The rate is rising in the UK and as they further ease restrictions imo it will continue to rise.

Fury could get his license back in the UK if he wanted but he has no desire to box again in the UK and has declared Vegas his new boxing home.


5.) 11 Jul 2020 20:55:09
Declared America new boxing home. Sorry I should have said.

How u been keeping HSF mate anyway, all good?


6.) 12 Jul 2020 15:31:29
Oh yeah there is no doubt that most states are the size of countries in both landmass and population, but when they are doing stupid things like opening up Disney world, when the virus is peaking in Florida, it makes you wonder how bad this is going to get in America.

I thought we handled this virus badly, but the Americans are taking it to a whole new level.


7.) 12 Jul 2020 17:16:35
Divided nation it is mate. It's pure greed by the fighters, if they really want to fight now they can fight but they will not accept less money. Fair play to Whyte at least he wants to actually box someone.


8.) 12 Jul 2020 17:26:42
Also I'm doing good mate. Just itching to see some good fights!

Speaking of which, the ufc has some really good fights last night. Rose namajunas had a real nasty eye and nose injury from her win.


9.) 12 Jul 2020 20:17:24
I'm not a UFC fan mate. I would watch the odd fight but I applaud the quality of fights they r able to put on atm. When u have one organisation u r able to do that. Boxing is full of too many different bodies. Funny, I'm complaining now about this and they said the same in 1922 when they were complaining about the amount of boxing bodies involved in the game then. 100 years ago they faced the same problems.

Looking forward to the boxing this Friday night from inside the BT studios. I think Foster vs Beech could be a good scrap.


1.) 09 Jul 2020 22:17:28
Will be good to finally have boxing back. Have you seen Dubois and Joyce will have warmup fights before fighting each other.


2.) 10 Jul 2020 12:28:36
Must be trying to delay it so that they can put it on ppv. I don't think Warren will put any ppv shows on until theirs some sort of crowd. Hearn is doing the back garden show so that he can put ppv shows on becuse its different. Whyte leaving Tibbs was a surprise.


3.) 10 Jul 2020 22:28:56
A bit of a surprise yes, riahkpor has also left Tibbs.
Whyte said its because he's in Portugal and its not convenient for him. Apparently they left on amicable terms.

Yes, Frank Warren is delaying it because he's waiting for a crowd. He can't do that fight as ppv, its just not worth it.


4.) 11 Jul 2020 11:02:54
I'f the only reason was because Whyte is in Portugal and Tibbs in London then why split altogether? Surely if that was the case Whyte would say Tibbs not my trainer for next fight but will be back in my corner?


5.) 11 Jul 2020 12:49:52
Well, Boxing squared has talked about IFL and Seconds Out uploading a video from Tibbs then removing it, with Whyte apparently using a Lawyer to fire Tibbs instead of doing it himself.

So maybe not such an amicable split?

Was a great fight hats off to both fighters they done themselves and their teams proud. Fair play to Matchroom aswel. They r trying to do something abit different and I think it worked. The walk ins were very good.
I couldn't separate them on the night I had 114-114. Tbh it's the best I've seen Eggington fight.
