    Hope wee Brook can do it later, but can see Crawford finishing him tbh.

    Anyone watching Katy Taylor V Gutierrez ? Taylor is sensational. I feel sorry for the Spaniard, she has manly looks and looked like a bit of a female tough nut, but Taylor is taking her apart.

    For those who are in love.....
    He started well but he's so fragile because of the triple G suicide fight that he goes in to panic mode when pressured..

    A good fighter completely done because of poor management..

    Crawford is just elite. Love watching him. You just knew he'd figure it out with ease and he did..

    The Aussie boy was robbed disgustingly. A disgrace that he was done for a headbutt when it was a clear jab and many of them..

    Tyson looks impressive training but I'm still dead against him getting back into the ring at his age.

    It won’t be a fight by any definition.

    An orchestrated spar for charity, fair enough.

    No judges, no winner, 8 2min rounds, they can't go for the knockout and if any of them are cut the fight is over. Sounds * imo, a heavy sparring session I seen somewhere online call it, unless they go off script. If the figures online are true and charity is getting it then fair play.

    Seen there's been quite a few (media) detractors for this event. You know the type - 'its bad for boxing', etc.

    Well they can get * - it's a well defined exhibition... not a competitive boxing match.

    Don't like it - don't watch it!

    2 legends sparring (with one of them always likely to be on the edge of going off script!)? * it - I'm in!

    What we think for tonight then ? Can't see past Dubois, Joyce is just so * slow it's unreal and his main form of defence is his chin.

    Why does a convicted beast like Tyson get any air time? Bizarre that he’s just accepted within boxing and in society as if he’s not a complete degenerate.

    Early stoppage for Dubois I reckon. Joyce is better than he looks I think but he’s just not easy on the eye. Good boxer on the outside.

    That said I think Dubois will obliterate him, 2nd round.

    Can't see it being that early tbh. Even with Gorman, Dubois' biggest test before this, he took his time and got his timing. To go in swinging like Wilder from the get go is risky.
