    Not harsh mate, that's your opinion nothing wrong with it being different at all.

    Good luck to Liam Smith tonight, his WBO fight is on Boxnation. It should be a decent bill, Paul Butler and Jazza Dickens on too.

    I'm sure Ali will receive a fitting tribute too, so sad. A true legend...

    Easy 2 round win for Liam Smith, not sure what happened with Butler and the Dickens fights?

    Any ideas?

    Ah, okay thanks. Let's hope Frank Warren can get Liam Smith in some big fights later this year.

    One minute I'm reading Enzo
    Mac targets Bellew next I read he got sparked in a round and has retired.

    Shame, at one point I though he'd go all the way

    As I said earlier in the thread, Lomachenko is special. Up there with the p4p best, for me. Great KO to win his second world title in just seven pro fights.

    Kovalev - Ward set for November 19. Now that's a fight! About time the best fought the best. I have Ward by UD, he's p4p best in my opinion, near impossible to hit. Like a heavier Mayweather who does more damage.

    Suicidal stuff. You can't go from British level to Triple G.

    Of course but its laughable that one minute he's talking about the dangers of Tom Doran to the possibility of facing and beating Gennady Golovkin. Or did i just make that up

    Chris eubank jnr is a beast. He is so vicious man and I cant wait for him to take on GGG. He probably will get beat but shows that he has got balls and is willing to fight the best.

    As for Anthony Joshua 17 fights now and 17 KO's he is the real deal. Cant wait to see him fight David Haye. He is a beast and is destroying opponents and thers such a buzz and hype around him. He is a good guy too. Might have a chequered past but you can tell now he is a changed man I really like him as a person and a champ but fighting Haye would be a very close fight imo as Haye is a banger too and can KO anyone.

    He needs to start fighting worthwhile people now, this was always going to be another walkover, just like every one of his other fights. He's a world champion and he hasn't fought anyone yet.

    Had to laugh at Eubank jr telling GGG he was coming for him, yeah I'm sure he's scared ****less.

    Groves looked the best I've seen him in a while, thought he looked really slick on the back foot and coming forward. Too much for Murray.

    How the **** can Hearn justify this being on PPV?

    I think Haye beats him, simply because Haye will move much more than anyone he's faced before and will be much harder to hit. That little 3/4 round stretch against Whyte where AJ looked lost showed me he might struggle with people who don't just stand in front of him like everyone seems to do. Fury beats him too.

    Anyway, anyone watch the Thurman - Porter fight? Thought it was a very good fight, and I think Thurman just edged it with the better shots and slightly more landed. Would love to see Thurman - Brook at some point.

    I streamed the fight. I agree but the heavyweight division isn't exactly filled with talented boxers atm. I can see Joshua winning all three belts like Lennox had.

    Joshua will eat Haye alive. Let's hope he doesn't have a toe injury when the fight takes place.

    Doesn't really matter, does it? He could easily have fought on Sky. He's had a few easy fights after a long time off, we'll see how he goes when he steps it up.

    Good stuff again from Joshua

    Technically looks the business, speed at heavy weight is a rare commodity

    He has all the tools to progress all the way and when he fights the best of the slim pickings available and likely beats them, the arguments will likely get more desperate

    Long way to go yet but as a boxing fan, to see a Brit heavyweight with all the tools in the trade needed can only be a good thing and writing off 100% wins by knockout whoever he's fought is a tad churlish, knocking heavyweights out relentlessly doesn't come easy
