Same result as vs Callum, I like Billy Joe but he has no power or anything to trouble Canelo does he?

Aye but BJS is a slightly more trickier prospect for diffrent reasons.  Still expect ginger to get him eventually though.

Apparently the WBO have contact Usyk to say he may need to wait for his title shot which means AJ v Fury could be for all the straps after all!

You sure?

Canelo Alvarez vs Avni Yildirim is reportedly now agreed for Feb 27th at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. It's understood Eddie Hearn will promote the mandatory defence of Canelo's WBA & WBC super-middleweight titles on DAZN.

I thought the talk was always BJS after Yildirim? Easy night's work for Canelo, then BJS on cinco de mayo maybe?

Canelo v Yildrim has been confirmed. He doesn’t mess about about.

Just heard Josh Warrington has vacated his IBF title because they wouldn’t sanction a unification fight.

Won't be far off two years for Pac in the ring when this one takes place. He beat undefeated Thurman last time out and looked good doing so. That level of performance sees a KO victory I think. Problem is, that was in July 2019. He is 42 years old now. If he comes out and dominates Garcia, I'm not sure what else there is to say about him.

Ugh.  Garcia's going to get the ghost of Manny Pacquaio on his CV.  It's Khan v Barrera again.
We'll see but MAB was clearly on the slide. Not 100% sure on Pacman given he beat a 29-0 star fighter last time out. No telling whether he has fallen off the cliff in the more than 18 months since though.

Well I haven't been impressed with what I've seen of Garcia so far, but it is fair to say he's been very carefully managed and for this fight to be happening, someone must think that Manny is finished.

A lot might depend on the weight I suppose.  If Pacquaio has to cut down then I don't give him a chance.

Think that might be off now after the weekend.  If McGregor boxes again it will be against a YouTuber in an even bigger circus probably.

Shame, because I would have actually enjoyed watching Pacquaio take him to bits.

WTF is an exhibition bout between two pro's? You either box or you don't? Steven Ward against Thor was an 'exhibition'. The YouTube kids are exhibition fights.

Manny against Garcia is a legit fight. At worst, a catchweight.

Does anyone promoting boxing these days understand what 'read the room' means?

Genuinely the shittest thing I've ever heard in a sport that regularly produces shit things.

All so Garcia can protect his zero. He really is the Instagram champion.

Upon further reflection, Garcia's team realizes there's a chance that Pacman isn't shot, so they don't want wee Ryan to get flattened.

In other news, Garcia has also challenged Floyd Mayweather... to a game of checkers.

Just reliving the golden age of middleweights. Never watch boxing these days and this is why. For those who’ve never seen them, check out Marvin Hagler, Sugar Ray Leonard, Roberto Duran and Tommy Hearns. Versus each other in any order. If you like knockouts, Duran ( Hands of stone) v Hearns ( The motor city hit man) takes some beating.
