Live Boxing Fight Thread!!!!

Live thread for boxing talk and those weekends when there's fights on that don't necessarily grab the mainstream audiences attention.

I don't think there was any doubt who the hardest hitting HW was but as we saw with Fury, if you show him movement, he struggles to land.

That KO punch in the first round makes him look great but he was actually holding on seconds before that when he and Breazele had a mini brawl.

Whyte vs Wilder is a more interesting match on paper than Wilder vs Breazeale

Allen/Price/Joyce vs Wilder is more interesting than Wilder vs Breazeale hell even Tom little

Price/Allen/Joyce are appalling fights on paper too Price could genuinely die in that fight.

Brezeale being the WBC mandatory was an absolute joke and precisely why boxing doesn't get my full attention anymore.

The post fight interview with Wilder was interesting. The interviewer was saying to Wilder how the very best must fight each other just like in previous generations when Frazier/Ali/Foreman all fought each other and more than just once.

Not only are the big three of this generation all swerving each other but they're swerving Dillian Whyte as well. And the likes of the WBC aren't helping matters either. Farcical.

AJ isn't ducking in my opinion.

The issue with AJ and Fury is the promotional rivalry.

AJ and Wilder will not happen until team Wilder start asking for reasonable amounts of money.

I'm not really interested in who's ducking who. They're probably all ducking each other to a greater or lesser extent. Also not interested in who's gets what percentage of the money, in fact I find it the most boring subject imaginable. Just want to see these guys fight each other and there should be a system in place that ensures they do.

There are just way too many obstacles in the way like rival networks, different boxing organisations as well as no real overriding governing body that can enforce fights happening. And if that wasn't enough then you have fights not happening because fighters can't agree on purse share. It's just an absolute mess.

I'm surprised we even got to see Wilder fight Fury in the first place. I'm very sceptical we'll get a rematch. And I'm even more sceptical that we'll see the winner of that rematch fight AJ.
