Weird venue. At least we won't have to watch it at stupid o'clock here.

Watching AJ's recent interview I do wonder how much he really learned from this loss. Still looked a bit rattled to me and unsure of why he lost even if he was putting on a brave face.

Even if AJ does beat Ruiz in December I'm not convinced he'll be able to keep those belts much longer with the likes of Wilder, Fury, Whyte (if he can fight again) and even Usyk introducing himself to the division. Everyone wants a piece of AJ and he'll have to fight those guys.

pictures ive seen of him if real shows aj has dropped a heck of a lot of muscle, wonder how that plays out, looks about stone and half/2stone lighter, I know we are a bit away from fight night but cant see him putting all that back on by december

much needed too... far too much muscle on him, looks great for the beach, but pro boxing is much more than how big your biceps are

If true, this is long overdue. He looked slow and stiff against Ruiz and if he had indeed dropped the weight, he should be quick and mobile.

I watched the interview on JD and Sky and he seems to contradict himself at times. He said he was willing to go to Mexico to fight Ruiz but then says fighting in the UK would give him that extra edge to beat Ruiz.


I think AJ will beat him but everybody is now aware of his flaws and this infallible mystique has suddenly vanished. If he beats Ruiz, there are big fights to make and I wouldn't necessarily make him the underdog against Wilder or Fury.

Imo he needs to get back to the weight & physique of the Love fight, he was quick and mobile but carried his power.

Yarde vs Kovalev next week. Still not convinced this fight happens, we haven't even had a press conference for it

posted on 18/8/19

if it does happen I hope that woman beater kovalev gets sparked out big time

Huge step up for Yarde who’s only really fought plumbers and builders

posted on 18/8/19

I'd heavily favour Kovalev in his home town against a green rookie like Yarde

Yarde with the worst walk-in music ever

Yarde can do it, let's get an upset

posted 3 weeks, 4 days ago

Great fight even though Kov outclassed him for the most part. Valiant performance from Yarde too. He has potential but his trainer needs to guide him correctly from here.

posted 3 weeks, 4 days ago

He’s trainer is a mug, gunna turn him into Eubanks no 2

Doesn’t even do sparring

looks like canelo v Kov later this year

kov is a fair bit bigger than canelo

6ft vs 5ft 8

posted 3 weeks, 3 days ago

canelo moving up from middle to light heavy...not even bothering with super middle

usually canelo has the weight and strength advantage against his opponents at middle

he'll be the smaller man by a distance against Kov

posted 3 weeks, 3 days ago

Canelo vs Kov will be at a catch weight in my opinion and if not, Canelo will have a hydration clause so Kov can't re hydrate to his usual fight weight.

posted 3 weeks, 1 day ago

Dont think kov has ever fought anything other than cruiser has he? dont see how he comes down to a catchweught especially at his age,

Anyone giving Campbell a chance?

posted 2 weeks, 4 days ago

Hearn judges to stop the fight after Campbell finally lands a punch

posted 2 weeks, 4 days ago

WBC fair play, result overturned and no contest 15 mins after the fight

Edwards was looking like losing and writing was on the wall but the decision is not even debatable that punch was so late when he was down and that finished it

Fair play to Suliman

posted 2 weeks, 4 days ago

would they have done it if it was the other way around?

posted 2 weeks, 4 days ago

Apparently this is fixed for fury to win in round 2

All rounds fury to win are 33/1 - 40/1 except round 2 is 6/1

posted 2 weeks, 4 days ago

Been backed from 66/1 into 6/1

95% of all bets on fury round 2

8k out of 10k matched on betfair round 2 Hughie

Hughie is pretty crap and has no power so can’t see it but Povetkin is old so if Hughie does lay it on him he could do it
