    Think that would be a good scrap tbh man that we tank Davies can bang just don't know if he'd take all that power up in weight .Would be a massive fight he's a money team boxer Mayweather would probably be at the press conferences .

    Josh Taylor would bully Davis, Gervonta Davis is a midget who holds no Titles at his own weight class never mind the one he jumped up to never mind another above that again.

    Be a great fight for Taylor. Like Tank, but Taylor a bit big for him I reckon.

    Quality for Scottish boxing JT .Always cracking fights still interesting to see what he does after Ramirez will he move up to WW cracking fights there or wait and fight Davis still think a good match up even with the size difference Davis is explosive as f--k massive power he's a we min Tyson .

    Tank is too small for Taylor. Taylor would beat Tank, Lomachenko and Mikey Garcia as good and elite as those three are Taylor is too big for those guys.

    I think Taylor is at the right weight division there is talk he will move up but some big weight bullies in that division and some beasts Spence Jr, Crawford and then below them you have Danny Garcia and Porter can imagine Porter v Taylor that would just be brutal war.

    Tank is far too small for Taylor, Taylor would smash him.

    No love for Canelo vs Kovalev?

    Potentially an excellent fight. If you had said 18 months ago that Canelo would be taking on Kovalev at 175lbs, you would’ve been laughed at.

    Difficult fight to call. The fact that Canelo even took this fight suggests to me that they know Kovalev has declined sharply and see it as an opportunity to exploit. Height, weight, reach, power... even punch output all go to Kovalev though.

    Kovalev is weak to the body, could see Canelo getting in close and * him up there.
    Would like to see Kovalev win, stop Canelo coming up and hopefully get BJS and Canelo or Smith and Canelo..

    Canelo has handpicked Kovalev right now for a reason. It'll be an interesting and entertaining fight but he's looking to add a name to his record smartly whilst he's slipping IMO.

    The size difference is substantial though, even with Canelo on that Argentinian beef.

    It's a great fight I will stay up to watch it.

    Kovalev is not done yet he's still dangerous but I do think Canelo will break him down and win. Kovalev is only getting 3 million for this fight and Canelo is getting over 15 million. I don't like Canelo but fighting Kovalev at his weight class has to be respected. Kovalev is absoulte * outside the ring I don't like Golden Boy and the whole GGG episode they really * him over but out the two of them Canelo is the better man. Kovalev is shitcunt when he's not beating women up, he's a pisshead racist.

    Really interesting match-up..

    Canelo will be too much for him at this point though I think. Too much gas in the tank and will pressure and hurt Kovalev downstairs..

    Would love Kovalev to stop him though. He does have that power but how much is left? I don't think a lot..

    Could be quite a cagey fight the first 6 rounds..

    Canelo late stoppage to the body i predict..
