    Had the Klitschko fight recorded and just watched it. Got to say I really felt for Povetkin, put in great effort and really had a go but Wlad was murder with his clinching, constantly pushing down, elbows and forearms in his face and throwing Povetkin about the ring, it was quite nasty at times. The ref was a disgrace also, if he nipped it in the bud early on it would have been a great fight and much closer imo.

    Not seen the fights on Sky yet, looking forward to watching them.

    Joshua is an absolute stud, smashed that guy last night. Be good to see if he can progress because he has the raw ability.

    Klitschko is a spoiler, boring as * to watch. At least with Mayweather and his tactics you actually see lightning speed and angles in his punches. With Klitschko as soon as he is pressured he pushes down on his opponents head - it should be outlawed.

    Yeah Joshua looks the real deal,exciting to see where he ends up..

    The guy he fought though even just physique wise you could see it was a miss match straight away and although he was game he got slapped about and took some punishing shots to finish it..


    Klitschko just doesn't excite and I had no interest in watching that at all..

    At the minute domestically is what's exciting me with boxing,some good divisions out there..

    Lewis doesn't need to fight, he has nothing to prove, also i never heard of him hinting at it before, even when they where trying to set up a fight against Mike Tyson.

    Loved watching big Lennox fight but when stories like this pop up it just shows how bad the heavyweight division is. The reason Lennox retired in the first place , apart from age, was because he'd fought everyone there was to fight, there was no contenders, apart from the Klitschkos, he'd already defeated Vitali, its been like that since he retired, thats why the Klitschkos have reigned for so long. There's been no young Holyfields or Tysons that have come along to challenge them.

    Heavyweight division really has been an utter mess for years, it needs some new younger contenders with a bit of razzmatazz, the fact people are even contemplating throwing money at a * like Lewis says it all.

    Look out for Mike Tyson trying to get back in on the action, really wouldn't surprise me.

    Lewis won't be coming back, and he won't have anything near a 50m offer on the table, if indeed there is ANY offer on the table, which I doubt.

    For $50m he would be mad not to lace them up tomorrow.

    Marquez vs Bradley tonight in what should be an excellent, closely fought bout. I favour JMM to get the win, especially after the beating Bradley took in his last fight.

    Anyone staying up to watch should keep an eye out for Vasyl Lomachenko. Possibly the greatest amayuer of all time is stepping through the professional ropes for the first time. He compiling a record of 396-1 in his amatuer career. Yes, 396 wins ans 1 loss, which was avenged 3 times. :smiley-laughing002:

    Not only that, but he's fighting in a 10 round title fight against a seasoned Mexican in his debut. This kid is not to be missed. I genuinely believe that as long as he stays focused, we will be seeing the pro debut of on eof the all time greats tonight :50:

    Just checked his odds, When you think he is making his debut and its a title fight in his first fight his odds are quite possibly the shortest odds ive ever seen in a boxing match haha

    Think imma stick 15 quid on Bradley to win on points.

    Yep good lineup this,will try and stay up for it..

    I fancy Marquez,could really go either way though this one..

    See that on ringside the ukranian,1 loss out of 300 * fights :97:,mental..
    Olympic champion twice aswell..

    Never seen him before though but he's straight in at the deep end and is highly rated,gonna be an interesting one..
