Hey guys did Reiss make a mistake or was there really a standing eight count in effect? Talking about the 3rd round when Loma thought it was over because Jack jumped in.

Edit.: I got it now. Ropes were sort of holding him up.

Yeah ropes, aye.

Crolla was moving constantly during the onslaught and was always aware of his surroundings.

I've got no issue with Reiss letting him go on. That would be hypocritical after praising him for giving Fury every chance.

I do feel the Crolla corner should have stopped it though. The ending was inevitable, but that's on the corner, not the ref.

Genuinely laughed my ass off all the way through that - joke commentary and joke fight.

Hearn is such a twat with his "why can't people just get behind the British fighter?" schtick. The blindingly obvious answer is that, unfortunately for him, people aren't as dumb and gullible as he would like them to be and they actually want to see one of the best in the world in with credible opposition, thus making for an entertaining fight (and not in the comedy sense)

Loma's performance aside, this show was garbage. Mismatches throughout, long delays between the bouts which gave it no flow at all...

Those that didn't stay up for it made the correct decision, that's for sure.
Shit card. Awful main event that was a disgusting mismatch, I was never staying up for this crap. Watched the Crolla demolition on Youtube this morning after a good night's sleep.

Agreed. I went one further and just looked up the result on the BBC this morning to find out the round. Not even worth the time to go into YouTube in this house!!

I am slowly losing interest in boxing. Fed up with mismatches like this at the so called "elite level" when you see UFC putting on fantastic cards with genuinely good fights.

All the belts need to go in boxing. Take UFC's idea and have an interim and world title belt. It then sets apart the genuine elite rather than having belt holders who aren't at that level.

Its shit, like three seperate leagues of boxing, all spread equally and preventing the best fights. Boxing would be popular in the US if we had regular fights like:

  • Lomachenko vs Gervonta / Mikey
  • Joshua vs Wilder vs Fury
  • Crawford vs Spence vs Thurman
  • Kovalev vs Bivol vs Beterbiev vs Gvozdyk
Shit like Lomachenko vs Crolla, Fury vs Schwarz and Spence vs Garcia just isn't good enough really.

Arum charging $70 for Khan-Crawford is also terrible, Stevenson-Diaz and Lopez-Tatli are 2 good step up fights but that doesn't make the card worth $70.

This is almost as bad as his 'When your anus is stretched, it's destroyed' Tweet:

Actually its a valid point. If he keeps fighting the Crollas and Pedrazas of the world then he should not be considered the P4P best.

Actually, I extend that to Linares, too.
