Thanks to every single person involved, from staff, former staff, posters old and current. All support means more than anyone knows. Thanks for your understanding.

The undisputed Lightweight champion will make the second defence of his IBF crown and first defence of his WBA and WBO championships against his mandatory challenger Kambosos Jr but watching the kick-off press conference just now I was surprised/shocked to see two fighters with badly slurred speech and haven't boxed for a decade, returning to fight on this PPV undercard in the co-main.

Former undisputed Cruiserweight and Heavyweight champion of the world Evander Holyfield is returning to the ring to fight Kevin McBride. At least neither man has been in the ring for 10 years so it won't be as bad as Benn talking about coming back against Bika previously but still I'm sure I'm not the only one who would rather they stay retired, they both look stiff and slow even just walking on and off the stage, I hope no one gets badly hurt in there.

Poor Ray Flores who was hosting it had to act as security with help from a sound technician or someone but clearly neither man has a security license and there was no help coming from anywhere else (I was laughing hysterically at this point), even though Triller are fairly new to this I cannot believe they put on a press conference without security, they obviously want to save as much money as possible on this event now (just look at the undercard or lack of it) but this was taking the michael.

Picked Lopez on points.

Heart says Kambosos but head says Lopez


Hoping GK has enough to get through the 12 rounds but am expecting Lopez to win. GK seems to have the right attitude and I believe he will show up to win but I'm not sure he's got enough tools to do the job.

Would love to be wrong though

Lopez beat Lomo, even if he is only half as good against Kambosos the Aussie wont get close.

Kambosos Jr is gonna have to be the guy that pays the price
Josh Taylor stop running
Devin Haney got his title via email
The IBF and Ring Magazine titles are the only ones I respect

I watched this video just now right and basically the champion arrived at the gym to do a workout ahead of his next fight and Welterweight prospect/contender Conor Benn was waiting for him to arrive, when he did he asked for a photo with him to which Teo obliged, anyway at the end a reporter asked him about Benn's last performance and it was a bit awkward but see to me it looked as if Lopez had no idea who Benn was or that he was a boxer (although he probably was aware of at least that) so anyway I went to look at the comment section to the video to see if that's what others thought and I was shocked to see many people calling Lopez "arrogant" and "full of himself" etc. but I didn't get that impression it looked to me like he was caught off guard by the question and he doesn't watch Sky Fight Night shows so he genuinely didn't know what happened in the Benn vs Vargas fight.

Anyway what do you guys think was it arrogance or ignorance?

He is just in fight mode and really couldn't give a shit if some mouthy Brit is in his gym.

He is there to work not talk in cliches like Benn

DELAYED: The fight date has been moved from this weekend to 19th June now, can't find a reason for it and apparently it'll be $10 more than Triller's previous 2 PPVs. I did hear that they filed a lawsuit against some broadcasters and individuals for ripping off their last stream and of course we know they overpaid for this fight too so the date shift and price increase (if true) is probably about attempting to cover that outlay.

So I heard yesterday that it was moved because they didn't want to go up against Mayweather's PPV, I forgot all about that although I hear the 19th is now full with different fight cards because of it, Mayweather was meant to go in Feb originally but then he moved it to this weekend so everyone else went running for the 19th apparently, just to get out of the way.
