Tomlinson TKO9

Tomlinson is wild, unnatural, many holes in his boxing... But he is athletic. He has power and a good engine, and his awkwardness can work to his advantage. Can't see him going beyond domestic level, but he should be in some entertaining fights.

It's a shame what has happened to domestic boxing in this country. Nobody can surely deny that Eddie's DAZN deal has been to the detriment of shows over here.

I can't imagine American fans are too thrilled by having cards littered with UK domestic fighters either, especially as most are in uncompetitive fights.

That and Matchroom's love of PPV's have ruined Saturday fight nights, after they were the ones who initially got them back to a good quality

Marrero is a good, slick counter-puncher. He fought very well against Tug last year. I reckon he will give Galahad a helluva fight. Tug will also give Gary Russell Jnr a real fight tonight.

Wow, I probably can't watch because I have a big project to work on, but Galahad/Marrero is not a bad fight. Suprrised it's buried in some domestic undercard.

100-88

Clear ref decision win for Ward. He felt Amparan's power a couple of times early on, but he was in full control other than that. Ward also dropped Amparan twice with body shots.

It's been a while since I paid attention to British boxing but fuck me Dave Allen is still getting pay checks and put on the screen?
