    AJ v Wilder - who wins ?

    60 fights between them, 59 knockouts

    AJ has Wlad on his record albeit an ageing one, Wilder has, well who does he have ?

    Who wins and why ?

    On the one hand, AJ as ridiculous as it sounds is still a novice, Wilder, you could argue has nobody of any great note on his record although by and large that's due to the lack of quality in the division.

    I actually quite like Wilder as a man, he came over to London this year and was really humble and spoke well and with respect for AJ none of this brash American rubbish, AJ is just AJ, lives with his Mum and is just about the coolest guy on the planet
    dont look back in anger.

    Its hard to tell with Wilder, AJ has the more obvious talent and record in terms of a better calibre of fighter, by a country mile really.

    Wilder in his last fight, I mean that was pathetic, the guy was ready to go down from the first bell

    Wilder would have to come here to fight, and should, the best fighters at this moment in time are here.

    With Wilder, I feel echoes of Lacey, big reputation, lots of potential, could be battered against real class.

    Then again he could be the real deal, until he fights someone like AJ or even Whyte then its hard to tell

    Exactly, it's a really tough one to call if they get it on

    Jeff Lacey lol that's a blast from the past

    He was the man....then came to Cardiff and got absolutely battered round after round

    One of my favourite fights of all time that, Calzaghe was as close to perfection as you could care to see

    Yeah one of mine too, it was sweeter by the fact that, like MCclellan in 2002, it was the big tough American coming over with this huge reputation to demolish our boy, Calzaghe was truly mesmerising that night and you're right it was close to perfection he was just dazzling and towards the end it became slightly uncomfortable to watch

    Mate, the lad appears to have had some serious mental health issues, body shaming him on twitter perhaps shows a lack of class.

    I also believe Fury is on record as saying he trains to get ready for fights. He doesn't want a ripped physique, just to be able to fight.

    I think they've both been calling each other haven't they ?

    Theres a large amount of empathy in regards to his mental health issue, however, once you come back out and start spouting then i think you're fair game

    So uncomfortable I've watched it many times since.

    Its funny because the night before Calzaghe wanted to call it off but like you suggest, it was his best performance and one of the best in boxing history

    I remember the chants of easy easy easy at the end and Lacey cut over both eyes

    Great days them!

    So if someone who clearly has mental health issues starts spouting in the street then they become fair game?

    No absolutely not, let me be 100% clear if he has recovered and is preparing to come back and actively courting, shall we say, pre fight boxing banter which I believe he has been and hes trying to re-apply for his licence then it's part and parcel of the sport.

    At the time of his mental illness many fighters and fans in the sport sent support messages wishing him a speedy recovery and wanting him back to the fold.

    Yeah we're alike mate I go though phases of watching great fights over and over; Calzaghe was brilliant, I remember the first time he got put down - Byron Mitchell, he was so mad he got up and panned the guy stopping him a minute later - amazing stuff.

    Aye, that was something.

    I remember the Hopkins fight too, he forced that event, wound Hopkins up and got his fight out there, walked onto a straight first round. I've never been so terrified as a fan watching, was gutted thinking that's it, game over. And I'd stayed up so late for it! Thankfully he did the job on the dirty Hopkins that night who didn't come to fight really, just spoil

    Should be good fight tonight with the battle of th "Liam's".

    I want Smith to win again, although I think he was a little fortunate in the first fight with the terrible cut on his opponent stopping it...it was really close and you could argue he may have been behind?

    The Smiling Assassin will have to be at his best tonight...good luck

    Terrible card

    Don't think many will be tuning into BT for that 1

    More interested in the boxing on Channel 5 with JT

    Would expect Josh to win convincingly, whereas the Liam fight should be a cracker.

    Just too much of a boxing match, really thought Williams would come to fight.

    Just stick the Jacobs fight on record...certainly not worth staying up for.

    Wide points win, good guess. Would love to see him fight Saunders next.

    My head is thinking Haye will bounce back and win on points, but I'd love to see Bellew do it again.
