There is part of me that wants to see Lucas Browne beat Whyte, I kind of feel sorry for the Aussie.


There's noone decent for Joshua to fight apart from Fury or Wilder. Fury is out of shape and AJ ducks Wilder. It's dull.

Spence was all over Peterson last night. Impressive.

The bug eyed boy really is something special, Thurman knows it too.

On the subject of Wilder, I don't think AJ is dodging him, and I think we'll see that fight in the summer, should he beat Parker and Wilder beat Ortiz.

Errol Spence looked absolutely quality at the weekend. He's going to be tough to beat. Would love to see Spence v Crawford.

Crawford needs to put on just a little more muscle before taking on Spence, if you ask me anyway. It would definitely be a great fight, two of the best in the game right now. I'd love to see Davis vs Lomachenko too but that little poser will avoid that at all costs.

'Sometimes' will dodge Spence, he's already said he won't fight Spence in 2018, the bloke is as inactive as he could possibly be.

Lomachenko would destroy Gervonta Davis at the moment.

And that's why it would be so good, much like it was to see Garcia make Broner look stupid.

I actually think Davis is a very good boxer, but he's just an idiot so seeing Lomachenko making a fool of him would be fantastic.

Amil Khan to fight Phil Lo Greco at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on 21 April. Should be a routine win for Khan.

I'll be we watching Frampton vs Donaire that night

Khan's next fight will be the interesting one, to see what he still has left. 2 years out, and after being KO'd by a huge middleweight, an 'easy' touch is what he needs

Khan on points, he'll use this one to sharpen himself up. Not a terrible opponent but Lo Greco has got to drop down to a weight that Khan will make easily.

I see the glass jaw mentioned again in various parts of the media, but it really isn't anything like what many journalists say, for starters you can't count the Alvarez one because there was probably a 20 pound difference in the ring. That leaves two knock outs, one from being a naive kid (Prescott), and the other from being just too brave for his own good (Garcia). He boxed very well against Garcia and Alvarez too, he's got immense talent and devastating hand speed, he just needs to learn when to go for it and when to back off, but then that's what makes him exciting to watch.

The biggest announcement will be if they are able to find 3 competent judges to score the fight

I kind of agree but I also think that if he was going to learn when to go for it and when to back off he'd have done that by now. Will spend the latter part of his career either fighting guys like Lo Greco or being banged out by World Champions.

Doesn't have a glass jaw I agree but isn't exactly what I'd call durable.

True WG, I've just always defended him in the past, mainly because my old t**t of a manager always dismissed Khan as rubbish when I would say I liked watching him.

I wish I could be excited about the GGG v Canelo rematch but the last one, and the absolutely ridiculous scoring, and the s**t that Alvarez spouted afterwards, makes me half tempted not to even bother watching it.

I'm really excited for Lee Selby v Josh Warrington, finally he gets the chance to shut him up. Selby won't knock him out but that will make it all the better to watch, 12 rounds of schooling awaits.

Bang on the money. It was so bad my dad - a massive boxing fan - said after the first few rounds:"Let's turn this of, it's ****, I'm not wasting any more time with it."

And he did.

Why in Gods name where any of you watching that **** British Beef sky card when a brilliant Cruiserweight unification fight was on at the same time on ITV4.

Dorticos vs Gassiev was outstanding! Two warriors in a proper battle yet both highly skilled, with a brutal KO to finish it off in the 12th. It was even better than the Usyk vs Bredis (other semi final) the week before which was also extremely good.(Full fight is on youtube - watch it, you won't regret it)

What a fight to look forward to - Usyk vs Gassiev for all 4 World Titles - Undisputed! :thup:

Love the World Boxing Super Series, fantastic production, lighting, entrances, hot ring girls, decent pre and post fight promos - really classy stuff. The crusiserweights in-particular had the best 8 fighters in the division competing. Even the Super-Middleweight one is gonna bring us Groves vs Eubank Jnr and likely the winner against Calum Smith.
