Joshua vs Fury looks to be announced very soon, as the WBO have contacted Usyk informing him that he may have to wait for a title shot.

It also looks like Usyk will face Joyce in a final eliminator. This could be interesting if Joyce wins, as I can see them rematching for the vacant WBO belt.

Across the pond it looks like Wilder is set to face Charles 'walk like a god' Martin. This could be over in seconds or end up being a really good fight, it all depends on what Martin turns up and whether Wilder has any confidence left.

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.

Yeah I think there was a real risk of them losing their 'major' title status, and being back down with the IBO.

At least we finally get a chance of undisputed, especially as that muppet Wilder can't force a fight through any more.

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

The mediation stage for Fury vs Wilder III has ended without conclusion. Deontay Wilder and his team will now sue Fury in Arbitration.

I'm not well versed on law or anything like that, however what I was reading is that this means Fury is free to go and fight Joshua, as arbitration is solely about financial issues.

I know Ed002 doesn't frequent the Boxing site, but would be interested to know if I'm on the right lines.

{Ed001's Note - he won't know about boxing regulations mate, he doesn't follow or like the sport.}

I figured he may know about the legal side, not to worry.

There are a lot of youtubers saying that during the mediation, Wilder wanted $32 million from Fury who in turn offered him $10 million.

I'm assuming this is either over a loss of earnings or some contract loophole, but from what I remember when Povetkin sued Wilder for loss of earnings, he was 'only' awarded $3 million in compensation. Now granted that wasn't as big as Fury vs Wilder 3, but 10 times the compensation? Have a day off, $10 million seems very generous if you ask me.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate as it will come down to what the contracts say and I have not seen them.}

Boxing in the UK can resume next month, the British Boxing Board of Control has confirmed.

A statement on Monday read: "The British Boxing Board of Control will be resuming boxing tournaments under its jurisdiction in the middle of February.

"Dates and venues to be confirmed in due course. "

Herring vs Frampton in UK for February. Hopefully Whyte v Povetkin is still UK.

British Boxing Board of Control has postponed all upcoming Boxing events in the UK due to C.V. This will be reviewed on January 30.

Not looking good for February aswell mate. Fights like Whyte vs Povetkin, Avanesyan vs Kelly and Josh Warrington vs Can Xu could all be moved to a different country. Possibly Carl Framptoms shot against Herring could be moved aswell.

On a slightly different topic. Matchrooms contract with Sky sports runs out this year around April/ May time alongside Ajs contract with Sky sports box office. With the launch of DAZN UK last month we are already seeing a lot of fights being shown on that platform. Then u have fighters like Smith and Campbell annoyed that their fights r not being broadcast on Sky in the UK. I think this is going to end in tears for one of them. Streaming a fight might be popular among todays younger fans but would not appeal to the majority imo.

At first I was totally confused as to why they were suspending Boxing in the UK. It's not because of the amount of people involved or the fact that it's super spreader events. It's because they need medical personel in attendace, which isn't possible with the NHS at critical mass in some parts of the country.


3.) 08 Jan 2021 23:07:12
Hopefully it starts to ease and they can get afew on in February.

AJ amatuer footage from the 2009 National Novice championships. This is the 91KG final. He was 20 years old at the time.

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.

Maybe but I doubt it. The casinos make so much money from the fights.

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.
