Great fight that

Not a fan of the Ritson fight, Taylor is classes above
Well to be honest with you, Ive not got a lot to say about David Haye apart from hes not a proper fighter, is he? Hes basically a bit of a gay fighter as Ive said. Nothing against gays, but if there was ever a gay fighter David Haye would be one. He showed nothing! He had all the talk beforehand and he went in there and acted like a bitch!"

Prograis was too passive and somewhat gunshy. Think he couldn't deal with Taylor's size

Unfortunately; and the longer he goes, the more likely it is to end horribly. Whatever prime he had is long, long gone. I'd like to see him hang them up and join a commentary team or continue in the sport in a different capacity.

He seems like a good guy and everyone in the sport seems to like him.  I'd be amazed if he couldn't find a way to make a living out of boxing.

I respectfully disagree

Perhaps mate, I do a bit of disservice to Bika who was never stopped. But Benn would certainly come close to it and make Bika take Paracetamol for a good while.  ;D

Nigel doesn't need the money, he's also a Pastor now so perhaps he wanted the money for his church or something. But the man is 55 and was out of the ring since 97. That's a VERY long time to be out and get back into boxing training shape and not feel the effects.

Some of the things he was getting up to in those 22 years won't have helped either, at least before he found God.

I went and saw him DJ in a local club in the late nineties and let's just say he wasn't looking after himself...

Glad Benns called this fight off. For me hes up there with anyone at Super Middleweight this country has ever produced. No denying his fitness or that he still packs a punch. But for me he was never the same fighter post Gerald McClellan, physically or mentally. In his hey day hed have blown away Malinga & Collins like a gust of wind.

Kovalev towers over Canelo, wonder if that and the reach advantage will work in his favour. But then again Canelo is quite stocky and those fierce body shots of his can make anyone whince. Going for Canelo UD.

I think this feels like a miscalculation from Canelo. Kovalev has been a monster on his day.

Think I must be getting old - lead in to this Canelo fight seems to be taken all eternity, even allowing for the odd quick KO in the undercard. Seems to be deliberately delayed for the UFC?

Brutal finish from Canelo in the 11th. Felt for Kovalev, he did well in the fight but just ran out of steam.

I had it level after 10 too but thought Canelo trying to set up the counter cost him a round or two.

His corner were telling him not to throw anything first because the odd time he tried Canelo was all over it with a left hook back. Idea behind his light jabs was to try and stop him gassing in the second half of the fight too.

Wow. Impressive from Canelo. I had him 2 up going into the 11th but can easily see how you could have it the other way.

Can't think of another fighter who has carried 1 punch KO power up so many divisions. I'm going to order some of that Mexican beef he's been eating ;D

Have to admit, the fact that they had Canelo and Kovalev just waiting backstage for UFC 244 to finish was very weird and insulting to the fans who paid to be there. Stupid scheduling by DAZN. UFC 244 was a way better card and had more mainstream attention than this.
