    Joseph Parker vs. Dereck Chisora - October 26th 2019

    Chisora may have slipped up over his age? Said he was 37, (he is listed as 35). Presenter reminded him Whyte accused him of lying about his age. Chisora replied with something like "I am 37, Yeah Right!"

    Joseph Parker vs. Dereck Chisora - October 26th 2019

    The interviewer doesn't even know how long each man's last fight lasted. Not sure who she is, doesn't seem massively informed, seems nice though, and a much better interviewer than Nelson. Chisora saying he won't go crazy here, cause he doesn't want locked up in the states. Happy being a...

    Joseph Parker vs. Dereck Chisora - October 26th 2019

    The gloves are off style face-off on Matchroom YouTube now. Seems to be hosted by a female robot. Parker a lovely fella, Chisora trying to wind him up by constantly calling New Zealand Australia. Parker a very cool guy, never seems bothered when people try to make him uncomfortable.

    Hughie Fury - Time To Move On?

    I think honesty from him, and from Peter, is a big thing. They need to be honest about his abilities, pick fights he is ready for, and try to work on his, many, failings. Otherwise we will just see the same cycle repeated again and again until there is no more value left in the Fury name and...

    Hearn Believes Dillian Whyte Will Have Hearing in Early October

    Surely there has to be some kind of announcement one way or the other? Even with the Fury's there was a conclusion to the process, and the findings and sentences were made public. I hope we do get an announcement in early Oct as Hearn has suggested. I am doubtful I will like what I hear...

    The Saga that Never Ends: Amir Khan vs Kell Brook 'Targeted for Spring 2020'

    Agree completely with this. The U S based fighters, (and their teams), understandably didn't want to travel to the UK to fight a high risk fighter who had very little US profile. Not when there were plenty of big fights, and a few mega fights available over there for them. Hearn should have...

    The Saga that Never Ends: Amir Khan vs Kell Brook 'Targeted for Spring 2020'

    Ha, I was just about to say he should have had more than 2 ww World title fights when I suddenly remembered he had 3 lacklustre defences before the Spence fight. Had completely wiped them from my memory. I don't think he maximised his talent or made the most of his opportunities. He almost...

    Hearn Believes Dillian Whyte Will Have Hearing in Early October

    Dillian back on again tonight, fighting for a place in the semis. Needs to cook for Ade Edmondson from Bottom and the Young Ones!? I make him the favourite to go through. Has looked the best to me so far. I don't usually watch this however, so take my opinion with a pinch of salt. In other...

    RBR!!! Orlando Fiordigiglio vs Sam Eggington; September 19 in Florence

    I think it will be because of DAZN, although it must also be nice staging shows in Florence and Rome rather than the usual grim places matches of this level are often held. Maybe Eddie just fancied a few jollies.

    Andy Ruiz Jr (WBA, IBF, WBO & IBO) vs. Anthony Joshua II - December 7th 2019

    Cheers. Will do. The guy I played football with was basically bed ridden for months. Suffered from confusion, headaches, memory loss, lethargy and mood swings. He's totally fine now, but it was worrying at the time. Have read about a few extreme cases of people never being the same. Losing...

    Andy Ruiz Jr (WBA, IBF, WBO & IBO) vs. Anthony Joshua II - December 7th 2019

    The BBBofC suspends anyone who is stopped for 28 days, rising to 45 for a ko. That includes sparring. You would then need to pass your medical, which should find if you have any lingering symptoms. The severity of concussions varies wildly. I know people who were concussed boxing, who had to...

    Andy Ruiz Jr (WBA, IBF, WBO & IBO) vs. Anthony Joshua II - December 7th 2019

    I don't think that's very fair. Ruiz also landed a lot of lucky shots to the body, AJ should also be allowed to wear a body pad to prevent any similar bad luck from happening.

    Are you more likely to enjoy boxing movies than nonfans?

    I would say I have more interest, but probably take less enjoyment, than my friends who are not boxing fans. Having boxed a little, and watched and read about boxing a lot , I find that any lack of realism in the fight scenes, (and any historical inaccuracies in biopics) often annoys and...

    The Saga that Never Ends: Amir Khan vs Kell Brook 'Targeted for Spring 2020'

    Brook needs to take the bulk of the blame if you ask me. Pretty much everyone he has worked with has commented on him being difficult to work with, and having issues with motivation and living the life. Then there are the stabbings and the various rumours. Spent too long having learning...

    The Saga that Never Ends: Amir Khan vs Kell Brook 'Targeted for Spring 2020'

    Finally living up to his "next Prince Naseem Hamed" tag.

    Katie Taylor, Anthony Crolla & Joshua Buatsi -- November 2 at Manchester Arena

    Might have been me that mentioned the fact it was his second stabbing. I wouldn't say I was a fan, but I saw him fight for the British title live and thought he would do a Naz and be champ in no time. So frustrating. Amir is always great to watch, but it's clear what his level is, and where...

    Katie Taylor, Anthony Crolla & Joshua Buatsi -- November 2 at Manchester Arena

    Hearn has promised/threatened that Kell and Amir both want to fight before the end of the year and he will try to make the fight between them next year. Yawn. I honestly don't know who is kidding who with this nonsense any more, but does anyone actually care anymore?

    Katie Taylor, Anthony Crolla & Joshua Buatsi -- November 2 at Manchester Arena

    In the IFL video in Manchester from yesterday Hearn states the Persoon rematch MUST happen. Then in the same breath announces this fight and that Seranno has signed to fight Taylor next year. There will also be mandos coming up. I reckon they are leaving Persoon in the cold in the hope she...

    Katie Taylor, Anthony Crolla & Joshua Buatsi -- November 2 at Manchester Arena

    Good last fight. Joe G said Crolla wants a live opponent for his last fight, but Joe doesn't want anyone who presents too great a risk. This would be a good way to go out.

    RBR!!! Tyson Fury (Lineal) vs. Otto Wallin - September 14th 2019

    Good point, hadn't thought of that. That will be the reason, cheers.
