    Fury-Miller seems to have been confirmed for October 5

    I'm not too outraged with Miller being given a shot. He is, afterall, being given it by a fellow drug cheat. A drug cheat that's somehow being paraded as a hero at the moment. And one who, despite still not beating someone in the top 10 since his return, is now ranked at #1.

    Hughie Fury v Samuel Peter on Khan card

    Yeah I can’t argue with that. But other than remaining active and making good money, I don’t think even they are pretending it benefits them. Even they know it doesn’t do much for development. But as a space filler and to make money, it’s no harm. Especially when it has no affect on his return...

    Roach open to training AJ, says he must change style for rematch & lose some muscle

    If a trainer can throw his name in the hat, without hesitation he'll push the notion that a change in trainer is required for AJ. They're all seeing dollar signs.

    Hughie Fury v Samuel Peter on Khan card

    He didn't get any rounds in against the other guy. And so if he can quickly get back in the ring again for easy money (probably more money than what he got for his short return), then it's a no brainer. Better than remaining inactive and coming back out in the Winter. Can't be mad at this...

    Johnny Nelson...

    Wasn’t worth the time to watch him in the ring, and certainly not worth the time to listen to him outside it. Never said anything insightful as a pundit. One of the first people I ignore on my YouTube feed.

    Andy Ruiz Jr (WBA, IBF, WBO & IBO) vs. Anthony Joshua II

    As mentioned just a moment ago, he won’t be damaged beyond repair. Lesser fighters than him have suffered such losses and they either managed to continue their careers coming across repeated opportunities (Audley Harrison), or some went on to become world champions again. With so much...

    Andy Ruiz Jr (WBA, IBF, WBO & IBO) vs. Anthony Joshua II

    He won’t be the same again. But won’t be damaged beyond repair. I personally think he will win the rematch. But even if he doesn’t, he seems like the person who’ll attempt be philosophical about it and turned the positives into negatives. Sometimes a bit of delusion is required in this sport...

    Andy Ruiz Jr (WBA, IBF, WBO & IBO) vs. Anthony Joshua II

    I believe it’s way too soon to call an end on AJ’s career even if he loses to Ruiz again. A massive superstar like him not only has worthwhile talent, but also the commercial metal to last another 5 years at the very least. No doubt in my mind that Hearn would navigate him to another world title...

    Tyson Fury (Lineal) vs. Tom Schwarz - June 15th 2019

    Wilder for me needs to do something drastically different in the next fight if he's to win. Knockdowns / knockouts aren't easy to come by. He landed very little in the first. Granted, those two notable times he did were very impactful. But it doesn't instil much faith when they -- landing...

    Tyson Fury (Lineal) vs. Tom Schwarz - June 15th 2019

    But that said, mate, I do still rate him as a good fighter. He's one of the best (if not the best) out of the current crop of heavyweights (albeit in a very poor era). So I won't take that away from him. When the dust has settled, he definitely will have beaten Wilder and maybe even AJ too...

    Tyson Fury (Lineal) vs. Tom Schwarz - June 15th 2019

    The only fight of Tyson Fury’s I’ve seen since his Wlad win, is the Wilder one. And this will remain until he fights Wilder again. Fury is quite the con-artist and I have to rate the way he’s got this one PPV. His style is incredibly boring and at times offensive to the eye, yet he’s talked...

    DeGale accusing Khan

    Wouldn’t at all be surprised if Khan was on them. Like they all are. Surprised DeGale would openly publish that, though.

    Joshua KO'd in sparring?

    When did AJ supposedly get knocked out in sparring? I was under the assumption that so close to fight, the sparring stops.

    Joshua KO'd in sparring?

    If every fighter who got KO’d or knocked down during a training camp was pulled out from a fight, we’d end up seeing a hell of a lot more postponements. It’s part of the game. It happens in boxing.

    Joshua KO'd in sparring?

    These sparring stories and panic attack rumours are hilarious. Especially the sparring ones. Firstly, if he did get knocked about in sparring, is this even new with AJ? He’s always been chinny and stories of him getting hurt in sparring have circulated long before Ruiz came about. And...

    Ruiz Joshua 2

    Judge Pasquale Procopio gave AJ rounds 1, 2, 4 and 5; putting AJ ahead (57-56) when they went into the 7th round.

    Josh Kelly

    Daniyar seems to be losing patience with Hearn. In one of his interviews he said he was fine (for now) with not being on a big card (Joshua-Ruiz). But this has to change in the future. And given Kelly's performance, I think he's justified in feeling that way.

    Tactics Joshua should employ in rematch

    Yeah, what you said basically. Turn into Wladimir Klitschko. Resist the temptation to throw wide hooks and limit the combos to just 2 punches. Keep jabbing at a distance and throw the right hand behind it (remembering to bring it back up high). Who knows, a knockout might even come from it...

    Why did Joshua lose?

    AJ, in and out of the ring, is not a very intelligent person. He's completely scripted. From his interviews to the boxing ring, he needs to be given complete instructions. Never was this more evident than in the Ruiz fight. "So what do you think he's going to do next?" he was asking Rob...

    Ruiz Joshua 2

    They can't afford to not chase the rematch next. If they give AJ time off or put him in with a confidence builder, they risk allowing the world titles to fall into the hands of one of Wilder or Fury. Most likely Wilder, since he's under the same management as Ruiz. That would be disastrous for...
