    Was great to watch, I thought Farooq won as well I never paid much attention to scoring it round after round but overall at the end i'd say McGregor won about 4 rounds and Farooq won about 7 the point deduction one i'd have called a draw. Farooq seemed the power puncher, the more precise puncher and threw the most punches also was the one dominating the ring and always pushing McGregor back.

    Both of them looked really good, I think McGregor would look better against guys his own style, he seemed to struggle a bit with the close range work of Farooq and Farooq being all over him - never got to keep Farooq aat a distance to let himself get punches away, most of his success was catching Farooq with uppercuts when he came in close.

    Only watched glimpses of that bare knuckle fight, Lobov so ordinary!

    Was a strange finish, Lobov looked to give in.

    That's the * thing about boxing, if you dont KO your opponent then your fate is in the hands of 3 numpties opinions. Farooq has forever lost his perfect record, due to numpties

    7 billion people in the world and only 16 people can say they beat Lobov.

    Artem the GOAT.

    * shocking, Farooq won that by 3 or 4 for me, just cannot see how McGregor won that.

    Farooq won by a clear 3 points. Disgraceful.

    My pal's good pal's with John Ryder and been trying to make a case saying he fancies Ryder Saturday :56:

    I said no chance and he'll get stopped easily..

    John Ryder beating Callum Smith :giggle1:

    He usually knows his stuff as well..

    Wilder should beat Ortiz in more devastating fashion..

    There's a wee card on Friday night sky sport's that looks decent as well..

    I can see Wilder sparking out Ortiz a lot more easily this time. Wilder seems to be improving with every fight. He doesnt have much of a style, thats why people cant take to him. But his punching power is literally devastating. I fancy him to beat Ortiz easily and I dont think Fury will handle him either in the re-match.

    It could be over at any moment, the first fight was a great fight. Ortiz looks in much better condition this time and It wouldn't shock me if Ortiz wins but I'm going for Wilder to win in under 5 rounds.

    A Zuffa Boxing Card with Mayweather on it fighting some punk in an ‘Exhibition bout’ was my guess straight away.
