    Good fight that..

    Rate Alfie Sharp. Was getting beaten to the punch and looked out of idea's though and rumbled by Geraghty who was slicker and quicker. Geraghty was getting overconfident and maybe cocky though by the fourth, was right fancying it and got careless swinging inside..

    Was stumbling in to shots. That knockout was beautifully timed though..

    No seen Sharp in a bad fight yet. Technically quality and going somewhere..

    He's torture..

    Dubois batters Joyce who is shocking to watch. Slow and robotic with barely any power..

    That Ghanaian was dancing away and as soon as Dubois got in there he absolutely looked petrified..

    Dubois should be going past dumplings like Joyce now. I think he could beat Joshua right now..

    Good fight, just watched it there. GGG might have just had a bad fight but he looks old and a fraction of the fighter he was. I'd fancy a fit BJS to dance around him all night and Canelo to beat him again.

    Age waits for no man as they say, at 37 it's natural he's on the decline. I honestly hope he retires I'd hate to see him lose against Saunders and hear that drug cheat * boast, same goes for Canelo.

    I always hoped GGG would move up weight class, but he never did and I do think it all too late for him now. It be hard to see how a slower less technically good GGG beats a Canelo whose in his prime now.

    I'd like him to retire too for exact same reasons, he's well past his best now and I think the top boys would give him a hiding. GGG should have went up years ago instead of staying at 160. His career will be defined by the Canelo fights imo

    Price in for Parker. Would * love Price to lay out that clown, Chisora. But unless Chisora walks on to a haymaker in 1st round. I give Price no chance.

    The can't be arsed version of Chisora might turn up. If that happens might be a close fight.

    Chisora's * but he puts the light's out on Price..

    Price won't be able to keep him off and up close it could get messy..

    Would love Price to smash the fat * though. He's abysmal but that Price chin 100% shows itself here..

    Even noticebaly past his best there is no way GGG is losing to Billy Joe Saunders. Saunders has boxing ability, but has no knockout punch himself and he can get himself in bother really easily too. If GGG gets in bother....he puts him away no question. The last thing to go in a boxer's career is his power. GGG allow on the slide isnt anywhere near that stage yet. He still has a lot to give and like I say retains his devastating power. If he gets Saunders in bother for even half a round and rattles him around that ring....Saunders will fold like so many others before him

    Price always looked half decent earlier in his career. No question he could punch. But his chin is probably THE worst chin in heavyweight boxing history. Man just drops like a sack of tatties every time he gets tagged. Its embaressing to watch at times. Chisora although an annoying *....granted.....can actually put * away if he connects....he's got the power and he will knockout Price no question.

    When did GGG last win by KO, against an elite fighter ? His power is sliding. Could easily see BJS dancing around him for 12, assuming he has the fitness to keep it up for full fight.

    Price has no chance against Chisora. You can visibly see Price panic and tire himself out with nervous energy. He'll burn himself out in a few rounds with Chisora sitting right on his chest and pressuring him. Real shame as he has the physical tools to make it an easy fight but he'll get sparked out.

    Problem is GGG was on top that long that everyone he knocked out suddenly became not a 'top class fighter'. Everyone was talking them up until they came up against GGG, the usual happened....GGG stalked them around the ring and his power wore them down or just simply wiped them out. He destroyed Kell Brooke (granted he was never a light middleweight but still at top class fighter), Steve Rolls was 19 and 0 when he got knocked out only this year, Marritorysen was 36 and 3...not great but still not a *.

    In fact out of his 22 victories 17 have been knockouts or TKOs.....its what the guy does. And most people agree he was robbed in the 2nd Canello fight. Canello being the only guy everyone seems to consider on the same level as GGG.

    He better have that eye protected the big daft *.

    As ‘fake’ as it is, getting chucked about a ring by a literal monster has its potential hazards.
