Probably not getting the Fury fight this year then?

I have a sense of dread about the Wilder and Usyk fights anyway.  One of them is going to go wrong.

Big John Fury reckons it's Tyson I think, had plenty to say about him living it up. At least Wilder is in the gym, however much use Malik Scott is is up for debate

Hope so mate.  I know you and me disagree on AJ v Usyk but I hope you're right!

With Fury v Wilder it comes down to how serious Fury takes it as L4 says.

I don't disagree per se mate. I think Usyk has a chance if it goes the distance but going by Usyk's Heavyweight fight a legit Super Heavyweight should walk through his defense and hurt him. Usyk needs to have the game plan of his life if he wants to beat the real big boys.

Dan Rafael reports Teofimo Lopez tests positive for Covid-19, Kambosos fight and card is off, moving to Aug 14.

As an Aussie, I been looking forward to this fight for so long.

Can't believe it got delayed yet again.

I call absolute bullshit on Lopez getting Covid - and I disagree with Kambosas saying it's because Lopez was not on track to make weight (although he does have a history of this).

I personally believe they pushed this fight back because its a PPV and doing absolutely shite in terms of buys.

It's a hard sell in Australia to have it a $50 ppv when only the hardcore fans know who Kambosos is ... and I'd say the same goes for Lopez in the states, he's not on PPV level yet.

Surprised no mention of former British Heavyweight title holder Brian London passing away lads.  I know you guys in here are real serious about your boxing

Anyway, he's passed away at a ripe old age of 87.  Not bad that considering what happened in later life to other boxers of yester-year.

Had two shots at the world title did London and got knocked out both times, by Floyd Patterson and Mohammed Ali. Lets face it though, two of the greatest boxers of all time so no shame there.

A fitness fanatic up until his death and a teetotaller. (according to Wiki).

A legend of British boxing IMO. 

RIP.

Morrell at 168lbs gives him a run for his money.
One thing does need to be said: in the post-Benitez era, there was media-led clamour (but also some politicking going on at the club) to make the club more English; the idea being that the club had lost the very essence of what it means to be ‘Liverpool’. Guillem Ballague 18/11/10

Agreed, Josh Taylor is undisputed at 140. Will watch Tank anyway.

I hate the alphabet soup titles. The problem though is that boxers aren't active enough. You are realistically looking at a year between mandatory defences.

Hadn’t realised these fights were on tonight. The guy Loma’s fighting went the distance with Lopez in his only defeat and Loma not had too many stoppages at this weight so I wouldn’t be surprised if it did go to points

Think the Gervonta Davis fight could be an awkward one for him as the guys much taller than him. Don’t know much about his opponent other than he’s an unbeaten champ. Probably Davis will catch him with a bomb at some point and that’ll be that but has the makings of an awkward one
