Your boy is getting battered mate. However, Crawford lamping him inside six rounds won't do anything for his rating since we all know Kell is completely done.

It was a fight that interested people this side of the water five years ago perhaps. Now, a rematch of Ritson vs Vasquez is more appealing!

BBBoC is taking no further action over Terry O’Connor. They are satisfied his scorecard represents his view of the fight. No action either over possibly looking at a mobile, I think this turned out to be his scorecard not a phone.

Agreed, hopefully the fight does happen this time. Inactivity has killed Billy Joe's career and Murray had a real scrap with George Groves so hopefully he's got something left in the tank for this.

He's not ready for me. 20 more stone he puts on and I reckon I can outpoint him to a split decision win, If I pay off the judges.

Lewis Ritson likes this.

Your plan is to hope he is in the mood for a dozen kebabs then mate?  :D

I've heard that it could be Otto Wallin again, which would be a bit shit.

By the way, Chocolatito was fighting last night; still has his class. Likely rematch with Estrada who stopped Cuadras in the 11th last night. Cuadras was game but not the fighter of a few years back. I'd make Estrada slight favourite if he fights choccy. Then again, we must remember that choccy has only ever lost to the Thai lad and the first fight was a very dubious decision. The KO was a massive shock of course.

BBBoC is taking no further action over Terry O’Connor. They are satisfied his scorecard represents his view of the fight. No action either over possibly looking at a mobile, I think this turned out to be his scorecard not a phone.
It is like they don't give a shit about the sport. His scorecard represented the view of someone who didn't watch the fucking fight, or something else shall we say...

PPV? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA Fuck me that's shit. What's even more shit is that enough casuals will buy it to make it worth their while.

What a treat to see an ancient RJJ desperately try to dance around the place for the 2-3 rounds that the ancient Tyson has any energy.

In terms of REAL fights, predictions for Usyk vs Del Boy? I'm expecting Chisora to bring the heat, use his size, and generally rough Usyk up. However, Usyk is a vastly superior boxer who can use his footwork to get out of range and tire Chisora out. I'm going Usyk via stoppage in maybe round 9 or 10.

Yeah Usyk gets him late on. Only chance Delboy has is if he goes aggressively out in the first 4 rounds.

I've given up trying to predict Chisora fights.  There's a version of him that could make it really tough for Usyk for the first half of the fight but will eventually get outclassed down the stretch.  But you never know when his homeless twin brother might turn up and stink the place out.

I think the refereeing will be key in this bout. I think Chisora's best chance is to try and turn it into a wrestling match. Lean all over Usyk make him feel Chisora's weight and try and wear him down in the clinches. If the Ref keeps separating them and Usyk can use his reach then it could well be a painful night for Chisora.

Massive weight difference between Usyk and Chisora. Chisora looks so much bigger in the face off also looked in the best shape he's been in for years, having said that so did Dillian Whyte and that didn't help him much. Although Povetkin has been a proven, natural and dangerous heavyweight for ages unlike Usyk.
