In the FA Cup nobody gets home advantage in the semi-final, do they? Even before they played them at Wembley they would have them at Villa Park or somewhere like that,’ Gallagher

Thoughts.

Joe would have moaned if it was in Manchester. Needs to get on with the job at hand, not worry about venues.

Smith should be too much for brahmer at this late stage of his career anyway regardless of venue.

Do like how this tourney has given Callum Smith some proper experience going through the levels before his world title shot.

He had stagnated so badly with Matchroom after the hype of Fielding and his EBU run.

Skogland and Breahmer are exactly the type of guys he should have been fighting (top 15 fringes/euro level type guys) instead of British level and below types like Blackledge.

Breahmer seemed to handle the weight cut quite well last time but be shocked if we don't hear those immortal words from the dog botherer "left hook boddeh"

I’m sure Joe will be fine when he gets there, after all he’s a big fan of German Shepherds, imagine the fun he could have going to the homeland of his favourite shag.

I thought his fight against Skogland was a great learning fight and actually a really good win. He'd not boxed for about 10 months, bust his nose early on, and beat a mobile, undefeated opponent who was nearly as big as him and was probably underrated.

I remember when Callum smashed Mendy to pieces about five years ago and everyone was raving about him.

He's done little wrong since and has been fucked about with opportunities yet no one seems to care about him or how good he actually is.

I can't see how in a month of Sunday's how Eubank Jr can be considered a better fighter then Smith. Especially at 12 stone

Thats the way I see it. Surprised people are seeing it as easy after Braemer showed he wasn't struggling at the weight and not past it. But even if its a tight one still doesn't mean Callum won't win the whole thing.

Shocking how ed isnt plugging this at all. I assume callum is still his fighter? If he wins the wbss his profile could go sky high.

Can't see this selling many ppvs, would get a good amount on on freeview, but who really wants to pay for that especially with a German undercard. P.s though smith was poor against Skoglund

Was looking into this but the only flights from London are from Standsted and times are awful eg return very late on Sunday, so plan to go to the York Hall show.

Really ridiculous to make it PPV, they could have promoted the shit out of Groves Vs Eubank by having this free to air and provided exposure to whoever they’ll meet in the final.
