    Tempted to go boxing Saturday. DeGale. Selby both fighting and my pal's cousin's on the undercard and sold over 200 tickets..

    Brief on standby..

    Be an unreal match up later on as has been said. Can't call it, although leaning towards Lomachenko..

    I'd love to see Lomachenko fight. His 86 year old agent says he's technically the best he's seen since Ali. Steve Bunce said he's been watching him a while looking for a weakness and can't see one.
    His dad made him do ballet and gymnastics before allowing him to train as a boxer.
    He's won two titles at different weights faster than anyone else. Sounds quite special.
    Bunce also said the DeGale fight should be good. Least that's on BT.
    Best of luck to your mate's cousin.

    Both Lomachenko and his opponent Rigondeux are as technically flawless as you’re likely to see. One of the best performances from a technical perspective I’ve ever seen was Rigondeux vs Donaire, who at the time was a complete killer and also the bigger man. Rigondeux stood in front of him all night and Donaire just couldn’t lay a glove on him.

    The acid test for Rigondeaux/Lomachenko is you won’t find a single person who would guarantee either would win.

    Lomachenko is favourite, for me because he’s younger, but even his biggest fan wouldn’t put their house on it.

    First time I've watched him box since he fought Groves, he's bang average imo

    Defo.

    All he's done is sit on the ropes inviting pressure every round and hasn't done much at all.

    Yank is winning for me.

    He’s struggled the entire fight tbh.

    Making a mockery of the odds.

    Surprised he got the decision with DeGale being at home.

    Deserved it though.

    115-112 was about right.

    Another * judge with a draw.

    Bunce - I had it DeGale by a round or 2.

    FFS, even Warren is telling you he was beaten.

    How many people actually pay for box nation every month? If I could pay a fiver for a quality stream on YouTube I probably would.

    Load of * that. I have to agree that I don’t think he’s hurt, I think he just wants out. Which is mad to say.
