Just watched the Linares fight, didnt see that coming. He had a case of the Amir Khan, soon as he got hit he wanted to trade rather than cover up etc.

Linares has always been vulnerable, and he was blasted out in a round before if I recall. Great fighter but there are always chinks in his armour. Surprising to see him get taken out by a guy who was almost getting towards journeyman status but that's boxing!

According to Ring Magazine, Wlad is discussing a three-fight deal with DAZN to come out of retirement. First fight against a no-mark, second against Fury, third against AJ. He is 43 in March, this is NOT a good idea! Although in fairness to Wlad, part of the deal involves DAZN making a large donation to UNESCO.

Fucking Hell, 30 seconds left in the fight as well. That might take the record from my man Ian John Lewis stopping Enzo.

I don't think he beats Fury or AJ, especially not at 43. I'd take the Wilder route if I were him.

Anthony Joshua opponent expected to be confirmed by Eddie Hearn next week
"I think you should get a decision next week," says promoter

By Tim Hobbs
Last Updated: 19/01/19 11:21am

Anthony Joshua's next opponent should be confirmed next week, says promoter Eddie Hearn.

Joshua is scheduled to defend his world heavyweight titles at Wembley Stadium on April 13, with Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury, Dillian Whyte and Jarrell 'Big Baby' Miller all being linked with the British star.

Wilder and his team have been ordered by the WBC to open rematch talks with Fury following their controversial draw in December. Hearn insists there is "radio silence" from the 'Bronze Bomber', but he has spoken to Fury.

Whyte turned down the initial offer to become Joshua's IBF, WBA and WBO challenger in April and with Brooklyn's Miller behind those three, the promoter is expecting to make an announcement in the next seven days.

"There is radio silence from Wilder, Fury we're talking to and Whyte we're talking to," he told DAZN.

"He (Whyte) has got his price tag, Anthony's got the price tag he wants to pay. It's a voluntary shot for Dillian Whyte, and part of me would love to see Anthony Joshua come to the States.

"'Big Baby' Miller is creeping into the top five right now. He's making some noise in America and to be a global star at some time, you have to fight in America.

"And to see Anthony Joshua fill up Madison Square Garden, with 21-22,000, that is a real statement of intent for a heavyweight world champion, for a Brit especially, so we'll see what happens.

"I think you'll get a decision next week. For me, if he can't get Wilder, Fury or Dillian, he must come to America and Jarrell would be at the front of that queue."

that was brutal cut. Jack was a soldier to continue but the ref really should have stopped the fight 2 rounds earlier. Jack was never going to win.

The cut goes any deeper and we'd have seen Jack's skull, not good.

Broner is such a fucking idiot, anyone see his post fight interview? Utter bellend, guy tries too hard to be like a rapper. Great performance from Pacquiao but, it's only Broner. I don't think he'd do that well against Spence or Crawford.

Oh and I sincerely hope Pacquiao v Mayweather 2 doesn't happen. No interest in that whatsoever.

He was the real deal at 135 but ever since he moved up he's been a waste of space. Even Paulie beat him for me.

Is Whyte still under Matchroom. Eddie talks about him like he isn't part of Matchroom now.

Plus again it would seem he can't make a fight happen with fighters  that are under him.

Yeah, I agree with you. Seems it will be Miller.

Don't know about Whyte's contract but Hearn's got a bit of a problem with AJ now. Since Fury v Wilder he's no longer the only show in town so a fight in the States with Miller makes financial sense. Might be interesting for a few rounds?

I'm not sure about Whyte not wanting it, I think AJ & Eddie Hearn have offered Whyte the fight with a small purse in the hope he says no and they have an excuse for going to the States and fighting Miller.

That's what I think.

Talk is that Joshua isn't even known in America that much and Fury is now a star over there.

Don't think Whyte will be under Hearn for much longer and the offer made to him would of been small knowing that a) Wembley won't be sold out b) Joshua hasn't broken America yet.

Possibly, or maybe they just think that Whyte will be mandatory soon enough and it makes sense to kill two birds with one stone in September.  Fury and Wilder will probably keep each other busy for the rest of the year.

Fury is a bigger name than Joshua in the US having fought there no doubt about it.

Yeah most of the orgs will make a champion an immediate mandatory if he steps up to the next weight, and Usyk has all 4, so he has the option to go straight in with AJ or the winner of Fury v Wilder if he wants.

I'd take a couple of Latvians first if I were him though.

Not sure about that; the last Latvian he fought gave him hell  8)

He would be much better off fighting a solid contender. Someone like Breazeale. At least he knows if he has issues with fringe level HWs, he has no business getting in the ring with the contenders. Above all, he needs to fight someone who is about 6ft 6in and outweighs him. He needs to know what he is up against size wise. No sense fighting a Dave Allen type small and stocky heavyweight.

Breazeale, Pulev, or Parker are all the kinds of fight he needs.
