Id like to see Davis v Lomachenko he has seemed to side step him but that wont happen whilst Loma has no belt.

"The Tank" is a nickname that just does not belong on a 135lber. Still, what a finish. Wonder what Ryan Garcia thought of that.

Considering that finish I would beg to differ

What a KO that was. Was a really good fight. Santa Cruz started really well, think it changed in the 4th when Davis first hurt him, was a little more reticent after that. The 6th was a cracker though and Santa Cruz was giving as good as he got up until the finisher.
Ridiculous power and a decent counter puncher but could be in trouble if he fights a boxer who can take his power (although I defy anyone at that weight to survive being caught flush by one of those uppercuts)

Potvekin or Tank, that's a stupidly tough choice for KO of the year

Not a shot like the uppercut when it lands flush like that. Explosive shot from Tank as it was from Povetkin back in August.

Stopped scoring Chisora-Usyk after 5 rounds have Del-Boy 3-2 up at that point so will watch it again. Anyone on here watch Inoue-Moloney, have seen the end but wonder if that's worth a watch too.

Inoue got a 7th round stoppage as well mate.  Worth it for his precision boxing alone.

I think what sets Davis apart is the combination of lightening hand speed and destructive power. Usually the fighters with really fast hands tend to fight on their toes whereas Davis really sits down on his punches.

I see Wilder's crawled out from whatever rock he's been hiding under. Now he reckons Fury had put weights in his gloves ;D

He really needs to fuck off until this unification fight happens. No one's arsed about him.

Of all the fights he could have had he chooses Ajit Kabayel who I’m still convinced Samie has made up. Is it purely a case of Fury not wanting a tough fight before the proposed Joshua fight? Are the better fighters tied up with fights elsewhere? Or, is it just another bum for Fury to add to his list and then claim to be the best?

The toughest opponent he could've fought as a tune up fight would be Rivas but he's in that category of "Might do some damage". Basically they just want Tyson Fury ticking over before the AJ fight.

Rivas is a hard night's work. I'd expect Fury to win a UD but if he has an off night he could get beaten as Rivas doesn't stop coming at you! Kabayel seems to be a fairly middling fighter and I doubt he will cause many issues. However, he is at least somewhat competent and will probably force Fury to train properly at least.

I would have co-signed Dave Allen if im being honest. I don't want any stories. It's a shame it wont be a crowd but the AJ V Fury fight is withing touching distance.
You'd have Fury against Dave Allen??  ;D That would be taking the piss after his 'performance' against Price. Might as well fight Price!

I just want to see two brits for all 4 belts in 2021. Honestly, I have no care in the world who Fury fights, just that he wins. Price would be great fight due to their history, but could you imagine if Price chinned him. Fcking hell

Lovely stuff.  Ticks all the Frank Warren boxes:

- Unbeaten
- Suspect KO percentage
- No one on his CV with a winning record
- Only fights in his home country
- Massive disadvantage in height, weight and reach

Slightly dissapointed to see that he has Derek Chisora on his CV, but it could have been Delboy's homeless twin that shows up every now and then.

It is a TBC Frank Warren special as I call it but to be fair its just a tick over fight.

At 6-8 weeks notice you arent likely to get anyone decent as they will want a big payday and with zero crowds that is not happening.

The AJ v Fury fight has to be in doubt with Covid now anyway unless they find somewhere who will stage it with fans in May/June time.

I'll be absolutely gutted if it's not in the UK. And in front of fans.

A 50/50 fight between 2 British heavyweights for the undisputed championship of the world is about the biggest thing I'll ever have a chance to see in my lifetime boxing wise.

Why would he? It is a risk, even if Del Boy would likely be gassed after five rounds. He knows that for as long as Chisora has gas in the tank, he will keep coming. Whyte clearly would prefer to wait for Povetkin to recover. Fighting Chisora is the ultimate lose-lose situation IMO.
