Just seen on Youtube from Boxing Ade that the lawsuit from Canelo got thrown out of the courts.
If he really fights Yildirim I'll be disappointed.

Didnt read anything about it being thrown out of court mate. Read they had a 10 hour meeting on Tuesday to try and come to some sort of deal but a lot more to be done. Although there is hope that Canelo will fight on DAZN before the end of the year against Billy joe or Smith.
No1 wants to see the Yildirim fight mate and its highly unlikely that DAZN will agree to it.


2.) 25 Sep 2020 09:56:13
U were right Hsf mate the lawsuit was dismissed due to an error related to properly identifying where DAZN and GBP do business. Apparently it's an easy fix and Canelo has until Monday to refile the suit or sign the deal that's on the table.

Like you said the other day Roro, Canelo is causing problems for Golden Boy and DAZN and has filed a lawsuit. He apparently wants the $280m they owe him.

This is going to get tastey, let's see how long it takes for 'leaked' information about Canelo's alleged steroid program to come about.

It's a mess mate. Canelo is blaming Golden Boy and Golden Boy is blaming DAZN. If Canelo gets his way I think it will be the end of Golden Boy, can't see a tv network sticking with them. Oscar seems to have lost the plot altogether. It's sad really when u see this happen, like what's happening in Belfast atm between Frampton and Mcguigan.
Both are blaming each other and a lot of stuff is coming out in that court room. I was told by a taxi driver about 10 years ago that this would end up this way he called Barry Mcguigan Barry Mcgreedy. Then my mates brother (they r a big boxing family) told me about 5 years ago that he knew for a fact that Frampton hadn't been paid for his last two fights. Sad that its ended this way.


2.) 12 Sep 2020 06:30:25
I know what you mean about Oscar losing the plot. Teddy Atlas said someone needs to get him a dog and Dana White just simply replied "cocaine is expensive", when asked about his apparent come back. Dana is an absolute savage lol.

I've heard rumblings about that with Frampton too.


3.) 16 Sep 2020 14:05:51
GGG is now in limbo himself. He signed a six fight deal with DAZN thinking he was getting the third Canelo fight and was reading there that they are trying to cut his money for future fights as they can't deliver the big names.
This legal battle they r having atm with Canelo could just be the start of a lot of problems for DAZN. Whatever happens here I think it's the end of Oscar and GBP.


4.) 17 Sep 2020 11:47:46
Along with Oscar, I think the end of Frank Warren is also coming soon mate, he's only got Fury who brings in the big money, Dubois and Yarde might do eventually but that may be too late.

If Warren ruins negotiations with Hearn for undisputed, I can see Fury walking away from him and joining Hearn on a 2 fight deal with an optional 3rd fight (all vs Joshua) . That would more or less put the nail in the coffin for Warren.


5.) 17 Sep 2020 15:44:00
I know Fury walked away from Warren when the Klitschko fight couldn't be made but personally I don't see Warren being a stumbling block in the Fury vs AJ fight. The money between the fighters is agreed and Warren will fancy his man to get the win.
Warren has a great relationship with BT sports and partnership with ITV boxing which I think will continue to make him attractive to young fighters as he has the platform to showcase them on terrestrial tv.


6.) 18 Sep 2020 02:52:10
Warren is 100% behind Fury v AJ, rumours of a trilogy never mind a two fight deal, one in London, one in Manchester, and one in Saudi Arabia is the whisper.

Was just browsing BoxRec and took a look at their all time list for heavyweights. There are some interesting inclusions. Here is the top 25.

1). Joe Louis
2). Muhammed Ali
3). Rocky Marciano
4). Wladimir Klitschko
5). Sonny Liston
6). Lennox Lewis
7). Gene Tunney
8). Riddick Bowe
9). Mike Tyson
10). Jimmy Bivins
11). Evander Holyfield
12). Vitali Klitschko
13). Joe Frazier
14). Tyson Fury
15). Larry Holmes
16). Floyd Patterson
17). Ingemar Johansson
18). Jersey Joe Walcott
19). Bob Pastor
20). Alexander Povetkin
21). George Foreman
22). Nikolai Valuev
23). Anthony Joshua
24). Deontay Wilder
25). Melio Bettina

Some interesting names in there. I'm surprised that Larry Holmes and Floyd Patterson are as low as they are personally. Also quite surprised that Valuev and Wilder made it in there.

1.) 29 Aug 2020 11:03:01
They use some confusing rating formula to make them lists mate, there is no subjective thought that goes into them. Personally I wouldn't have 5 or 6 names in there myself.


2.) 29 Aug 2020 13:50:31
Yeah they use an ELO formula which actually makes sense for the most part.

In theory the ELO system benefits those that take harder fights against higher ranked opposition, where as the guys with the padded records will not be benefitted.

I say in theory because some how they've managed to put Wilder above Joshua in the current top ten. Even though Wilder has a massively padded record.

I agree that there are some names in there that don't make sense. Valuev, Wilder, Joshua, Fury and Bowe don't really deserve their inclusion personally.

Well, that's what we were all worried about. God damn it, I'm devastated for Whyte.

hsf

1.) 23 Aug 2020 11:58:27
It migh4 feel like the end of the world for Whyte but it's not. He can come again with a win in the rematch. Only problem is now its probably going to be 2022 before he gets his shot.
This now leaves the door open for what most of us want to see and that's Fury vs Joshua, Whyte may just forget and them for awhile and focus on Povetkin. He will probably fight Wilder before he gets a shot at the title. Gutted for him myself.


2.) 23 Aug 2020 12:03:28
He boxed well. Was hurting Povetkin with his jab and them body shots were lovely. What I didn't like was in the corner there was two men giving advice, I found that strange.
That punch that dropped him was a cracker, no1 is getting up from that.


3.) 23 Aug 2020 12:32:40
When that punch landed it was like a death had just happened. The silence was deafening. Fair play to Whyte he is probably embarrassed but at least he had the balls to fight unlike other fighters who want maximum money until they lace em up. Plus that was a proper punch, no question of Whytes chin he just never seen it coming.


4.) 23 Aug 2020 12:36:17
And Joshua shouldn't be questioning anyones killer instinct. I didn't see his killer instinct against Ruiz.


5.) 23 Aug 2020 12:55:49
I completely agree Roro. I've been saying for a long time that Povetkin has the most devastating KO highlight reel in Boxing, he's a murderous puncher and Whyte found that out last night.

I don't think Whyte did much wrong, but the one mistake he did make (which he makes quite often), is he leaned forward and puts his weight on his front foot, which leaves him really open to uppercuts. Joshua, Rivas and now Povetkin have all put Whyte down from uppercuts.

I think Whyte will win the rematch. Povetkin looked like he was done in the 4th and was even blowing hard at the end of the 3rd. Povetkin looked like he lost a lot of his speed too and really looked old at times.

Also, it's interesting how differently his rivals reacted. Joshua basically said "dust yourself off champ and go again"
Fury just said "40 and proud"
Where as Ruiz just put a laughing emoji - which doesn't make sense considering Ruiz is arguably the biggest joke in Boxing behind Deontay Wilder.


6.) 23 Aug 2020 14:20:53
I've said what I've said before about Whyte but I'm not one for kicking a man when he's down, even if he has talked a lot of rubbish.
Whyte is basically in the same position he was yesterday. Beat Povetkin for a shot at the title.

Me too, he's such a moron. But McKenna is trying so hard to be McGregor. Did you see his promo on twitter?

Soooo cringe!

This is something I don't understand, why are the top fighters refusing to take less money? These guys are not short of cash, they have good sponsors backing them and other revenue streams in most cases.

Not only that, but if Canelo doesn't accept the revised offer and reignites his court case, he's going to financially ruin DAZN and put a very large roster of fighters in limbo. The bigger names will be fine, but the guys who aren't a big draw or aren't particularly exciting will struggle.

For the good of Boxing Canelo should take the deal, it would set an example and others would hopefully follow suit because of it.
I don't normally advocate for professional fighters to get less money, but for the good of the sport they have to right now.

I can see Usyk giving Chisora a real boxing lesson. Del has always struggled with opponents who have good footwork and good fundamentals, he's also openly admitted he doesn't like facing southpaws.

I don't give Chisora much of a chance personally.
