WORLD'S STRONGEST BOXING!

Eddie Hall vs Hafthor Bjornsson fighT confirmed for September 2021.

Fans of the sweet science will be dissapointed with this one I think ;D

Floyd v McGregor opened the doors for all these gimmicky boxing matches. They're alright to a point but  no way would I shell out £25 to watch two amateur Youtubers or bodybuilders with no fighting experience slug it out. Tyson v Jones is going to be a bust too, nothing but a glorified sparring session.

Hey, I'm not complaining.  Much as we can all appreciate the technical wizardry of Sweet Pea, there's nothing better than watching a couple of absolute units windmilling at each other for a couple of rounds before one of them collapses from exhaustion ;D

Tempted to lump on the draw at 12/1 with Betfred for Tyson v Jones.

The only thing that's stopping me is wondering whether they can drag it out long enough.

If they use economy of effort they could easily manage it. I believe it is two minute rounds as well. Old or not both have enough experience to know how to go the distance.

Was listening to the Costello and Bunce podcast today and the clips of Mike interviewing Tyson in Paris were quite chilling, dangerous c*nt regardless of anything good he's supposedly doing now.

What was said?

It was from at least a decade ago, and Costello was musing about when he should bring up the rape conviction in his 1 hr interview slot. He brought it up about half way through the interview and Tyson said he didn't do it so why would he be sorry, and when Costello pressed him on the conviction he basically threatened him. His whole conduct around the conviction in the interview was disgusting to be honest, saying he had done much worse.

I appreciate his supreme talent as a boxer and what he achieved will never be matched by someone at the age that he did it and I completely empathise with the tough upbringing he had but his complete lack of remorse doesn't sit right with me.

How much are they getting properly? Dan Rafael said Jones Jr is getting a guaranteed $1 million, whereas some reports say Tyson is getting around $10 million.

I really don't want to see this, but I will watch it through some morbid curiosity and nostalgia. I'm not buying it though.

I once paid for the Bellew vs Cleverly II card and felt like a proper mug (my Internet was shit so had no chance of a stream). It was also an excuse to get rid of the missus and kid for the evening so that was worth the money IMO  ;D

Therefore, I don't say this lightly, but anyone paying £20 for this is a complete mug. In fact, they are the mug of mugs.

Oh man.  That was an all time stinker.

I bet this sells quite well though unfortunately.  Everyone I know who doesn't normally watch boxing has mentioned this one to me.

So a jug? :P Shame on you for paying to see feather-fist Cleverley, I also watched it on a stream and had to turn it off after a few rounds it was that bad.

How do people reckon Jones v Tyson would've gone down in the 90's when they were in their primes?

Jones was a Middleweight/Super Middle in the 90's mate. By the time Jones Jr got to Heavyweight, Tyson was really shit losing to Danny Williams and the likes.  ;D

Tyson's prime was in the 80s really.  That version of him would take apart any version of RJJ just because he was a proper HW and RJJ wasn't really.

It was a hell of an achievement to win titles from MW to HW, and RJJ was one of my favourite ever fighters, but he was a bit lucky that when he came up to HW John Ruiz had somehow become champion instead of Tyson, Lewis, Holyfield, Bowe or the Klits.

Leave Danny alone  :D! His fights against Potter and particularly against Airich are up there in my all time 'mad fights' list. If anyone hasn't seen the latter it is well worth a watch for laughs - utter madness. Was it him as well involved in an absolute bloodbath against Skelton?

Just looking at Sky and it's not totally clear - is Joyce v Dubois still going to be on 'free' Sky?

Looking forward to the Dubois Joyce fight, the talk of Dubois facing the winner of AJ/Fury should it happen next year is daft though.

He needs managing past those two imo and he will have the chance of being a British HW world champ for a few years, but fuck me he's a total charisma vacuum isn't he?

Looking forward to Dubois vs Joyce which is the biggest domestic contest since Lewis vs Mason. I think Joyce will win by stoppage between rounds 7-9.

Watched the weigh in for Tyson vs Jones and going to swerve ordering that. Will watch it afterwards on YouTube once itís available.

Dubois in the middle rounds for me, Joyce is too slow and robotic.

With that said, he'll probably give Dubois chin a test so could easily go the other way.

My cat has more personality than him. He's got a weird way of talking too. The AJ/Fury talk is ridiculous, got to love the British way of overhyping their sportsmen. If he wins. I say give him the GOAT Charles Martin.

If Dubois has any ideas of getting a world title shot like he wants by end of next year then he should be dispatching Joyce tonight. Late KO I say.
