    Kovalev should hang em up, he's done now. * all punch resistance and power. Can't believe they Canelo up at time of stoppage, I had Kovalev at least 2 or 3 up.

    * fight. Glad it didn’t go to the scorecards as having Canelo in front was contentious to say the least.

    Kovalev was definitely up for me, score cards a joke.

    Class from Canelo though, what a beast!

    What the actual * is this :56:

    I genuinely can't believe what fight some people were watching. Kovalev hit nothing but gloves all night. Canelo absolutely dominated and arguably won every single round. 7-3 at worst.

    Madness lads. Hitting gloves does not constitute winning a fight.

    Think I defintley got it wrong tank is a superfeatherweight Taylor a WW hopefully see him win or lose against Ramirez fight a top 10 WW .I read Ramirez is like a young Oscar Dela Hoya great match up 2 olmpians .Taylor though massive at LWW .

    Great fight this..

    If Inoue catches him flush one more time I reckon he can force a stoppage in the last 2..

    Class fight..

    Nonito deserves credit for the way he fought. Hurt Inoue and tried to take centre of the ring as well as lasting the final bell....but Inoue is just class..

    Kash Farooq and Lee McGregor tonight on bbc Scotland..

    Glasgow v Edinburgh. Both undefeated. Both class looking fighter's with power..

    Watched Farooq's last two fights on the same channel and he's a spiteful puncher..

    McGregor I've seen on the bill's of Taylor. Maybe the slicker of the two but can still bang and has the reach advantage..

    This won't disappoint..

    I've not followed either's career, but from what I've heard these two are two good prospects. I listen to a boxing podcast called the nuthouse podcast and a few of them are Scottish and were saying this is a must-watch fight. I didn't realise it was on tonight at 9 apparently.

    I think so mate aye..

    Should be fireworks from fairly early..

    I fancy McGregor only just cause he seems more polished but it's a 50/50..
