Anthony Ogogo has retired from professional boxing. Broke his eye socket in his last fight in October 2016 and has seven operations on it since. Right decision, can’t put your health at risk in a dangerous sport.

Anthony Yarde vs Sergey Kovalev? Seriously? I know I said Yarde needs to step up but Kovalev is a whole different level.

Allen vs Browne is expected to headline that 02 show, absolute madness, both absolutely useless, might as well go down the pub and watch a fight. Anyone who buys tickets need their head tested.

Erroll Spence Jr vs Mikey Garcia this weekend. That's going to be some fight. I'd like to see Garcia win this but I think Spence's size advantage is going to tell. Late stoppage I reckon.

On ITV4 as well from 1am. Best fight that's been on domestic TV for a long long time

I wasn't aware of that! Brilliant, cheers for that.

Katie Taylor wins TKO 9th round. A dominant performance.

Decent scrap between Farmer and Carroll. Farmer is classy. Great effort from Carroll but Farmer wins by UD.

The images from the weigh in between Spence and Garcia is remarkable, size difference is certainly something

Prediction: Errol Spence by whatever method he wants, whenever he wants

This is pretty much what it amounted to. As much as I like and respect Garcia and would have loved him to upset the odds, the size difference simply proved too much.

That isn't trying to detract from what Spence did; he won every round convincingly and boxed superbly. I'm not sure that Manny P fancy's a crack at is title having witnessed that performance.

Garcia's corner could have pulled him out after the 9th to save him from more punishment; those last three rounds may take a year or two from his career but you have to applaud the lad stepping up TWO divisions to take on the best. Hopefully he can step back down to 135lb and take on Lomachenko.

A weight class too far for Mikey.

Spence Jr looked imperious.

Would love to see Garcia-Lomachenko after the Ukrainian dismantles Crolla.
