    They are dying for a Dubois win because their network has invested money in his a career and promoter

    Big Joyce is a machine for a guy that size.

    Too big a jump too soon for Dubois. He got his face jabbed relentlessly.

    I thought Dubois would spank him early, but even when the shots connected fully, Joyce has shown he has a fantastic chin. Really impressive win for him.

    Just looked a bang average fight with average fighters.

    Was looking forward to the fight, but they're both way off going anywhere near any of the major heavyweights and I even include a Whyte and probably even Chisora for that matter.

    I completely understand that was he did was sensible - insofar that it's sensible to not go into boxing at all.

    This was Dubois 'gateway' fight - the one that was going to open the doors. Who is going to pay to watch him 'fight' again after that performance? He put in a rank-rotten showing and quit because his eye closed. I can count on NO hands the number of elite level fighters who voluntarily quit because their eye closed.

    Boxing is clearly not the sport for him!

    A draw to set up another cash cow fight in a few months time.

    Watched a rerun of tyson v Jones, Snoop Dog was hilarious.

    In one of the clinches he was saying please Mike no flashbacks, lol.

    As also singing when Nate Robinson got sparkled in that Paul. Fight, lol.

    Think. I'll. Opt. For Arthur v Yarde over Saunders fight.

    Saunders was far from his best against Martin, but did more than enough to win a shut-out.

    He talks a great game (and admittedly must be an absolute nightmare to fight), but I'm not entirely convinced he wants anything to do with Canelo or GGG.

    For those who are in love.....
    He was far too good for Murray. Murray showed heart though..

    Canelo stops Smith and BJS but I want to see it..

    Yarde got humbled last night. Deservedly lost for me and his waffle after showed how embarrassing him and his trainer Tunde are. Only tried to step on it with a few to go once he was told Arthur's right hand was gone..

    Got jabbed to * for most of it..

    Recorded Spence/Garcia and watched it this morning. Really enjoyed it. Rate Danny Garcia but he just doesn't throw enough combinations. He's technically excellent but a lot of it is wee bursts here and there and single shots..

    Spence had variety, pressure and a pretty decent defence all in....although Garcia did have success..

    Spence was impressive though and an elite. Garcia world class but Spence just better..

    Cannot wait. Seriously cannot wait until Spence/Crawford happens..
