Imagine if this was at Anfield with what 70k  there?

If he does the unlikely surely he can try and demand the rematch is here? Not that Canelo would fancy leaving Vegas

Agreed mate. Maybe at Wembley in front of 100k is doable. But no way he's coming up North.  ;D

If Smith wins he may have no choice though. Rematch at Anfield would be fantastic

Would be good to see Callum win but I have a feeling he’ll get knocked out. Canelo is an absolutely awesome fighter. If Smith goes the distance he’ll have done well, but can see Canelo ripping him a new one big time and stopping him.

Dubois v Joyce and AJ v Pulev are being held at what looks like a wedding hall. I suppose no need to have it at the o2 but what a weird setting.

Also never knew Joyce is 12 years older than Dubois! Always thought he was a young prospect. Can't see him becoming a world class fighter, he's started far too late in the game.

Formella does not look like he's 31-1 here. Benn is outclassing him right now.

Benn is fast and throws lots of punches I can’t help but think he is too reckless and a step up in level he will get picked off.

Oh yeah, he'd stand no chance against Spence or Crawford right now but he's far the better fighter here

Oh yeah I’m not talking Spence/Crawford I’m talking people like khan/Brook even would sort him out.

A real test would be Ekow Essuman for Benn imo.

Every time I've seen him he looks like an accident waiting to happen.

Same was true of his old man to be fair. Conor is going to run into his version of Michael Watson at some stage.

Commentators trying to make out he could go on and really be something. Just can’t see it myself. Think he’ll struggle to go past domestic level. So open and he carries no real power

To be fair I think Formella is a decent standard, Shawn Porter is his only loss and that was by UD but can see what people say about Benn. I think he'll be a decent level but he won't be elite.

He's so much better than he was, it's pretty cool to see the improvement, seems a good lad as well so I'm rooting for him, Sims as his trainer and all the good sparring there is evidently working really well for him.

This lads only loss was to Porter on points. He's no mug. Young Benn is starting to look like a proper contender imo.

Benn always turns up in great shape and is improving technically, however he just doesn't hit hard enough.

One thing does need to be said: in the post-Benitez era, there was media-led clamour (but also some politicking going on at the club) to make the club more English; the idea being that the club had lost the very essence of what it means to be ‘Liverpool’. Guillem Ballague 18/11/10

He has talent but he's not ready for the elite so put him up  against the British champion to see where he is.

Absolutely he dominated tonight and has improved, but he still leaves himself open all the time and he has no power. Don’t know much about Chris Jenkins the British champ but wouldn’t fancy him against Josh Kelly and he’s not likely to be much better than European level

It might sound daft but Conner is just the wrong shape for a boxer. As a boxer you want a narrow body and long levers to give you a reach advantage. Conner is pretty much the opposite he has a really wide frame and to compound it a huge head for his frame.

He is a perfect example of nurture over nature. He has grown up in an environment that has given him an advantage but as he goes up in class that will quickly evaporate.

I think he will get walked down because he isn't technically brilliant enough to score without being hit and doesn't have the firepower to deter elite level fighters.

That's a fair step for him to take. He didn't even look British title level a couple of years ago. He is clearly working hard to improve. I'd agree he isn't at the world level, and may never be. Then again, he could get a 'soft' title as there are about 500 of them! Didn't Paul Smith get a world title shot? Or more than one?  ;D

Mind you, in my book he actually won one of them so shouldn't take the piss.

Cert they put that on PPV too.

This shite at the weekend is a joke. Surely no one will be paying for it. No knockouts, no judges, no cuts etc. What the flying fuck is the point of it?
