Get Paul heyman in as his manager and just build him as a monster heel

Dubois is the real deal.
Joyce is getting knocked out as soon as he steps in with anyone with a dig

After tonight would imagine they’ll pull the plug on Joyce as a world level fighter and feed him to dubois soon enough

Yeah. Just throwing shit loads of slappy punches isn’t gonna win him anything. Gorman would probably beat him

Not quite ‘Rumble in the Jungle’ eh. would’ve preferred ‘Throwing Hands on the Sands’

What’s the time difference to over here? Could be on at tea time?

2 hours. But it’ll be on at a weird local time to make it sellable in the US I’d guess?

anyone watching campbell v loma? really good fight so far

Campbell fought out of his skin, possibly as good a fight as he could have fought. Wasn’t nearly enough. Loma is just a different beast. Cards were a bit wide for me, really good fight though.

yeah was a closer fight than the cards suggest, lot of rounds that could have been given either way. really impressed by campbell but always felt that loma had another gear if he needed it

I had it at 116-111 I think, wasn’t scoring round by round though. I think Campbell really pushed Loma at times but ultimately had to do a rugby tackle/ball punch 1-2 to avoid being knocked out in the 12th.

Really feel for Campbell, he’s gonna basically have to wait till Loma goes up or down in weight (probably down I reckon, I don’t think he has the frame to go any higher) before he has a shot at being world champ. Dunno what he’s gonna do to occupy himself in the meantime unless he fancies stepping up himself.

That cut made it a bit of a tense affair eh.

If not fury was miles ahead but there was always a chance of the tko.

This is terribly sad. RIP.

Heartbreaking. It’s a hard sport to defend when it seems you’re never far away from a tragedy like this. RIP.

Fucking hell Deontay Wilder might have a harder right hand than Mike Tyson.

People say the dude can’t box but waiting Ortiz out and measuring that shot until he could land it clean was probably the best strategy. When you have a punch like that why would you risk doing anything more? Impressive stuff, bring on Fury.

Yes completely agree, he is an unorthodox fighter, “street brawler” type, but he can take a punch and baits his time. That right hand is absolutely fierce and you know that’s in the back of the other fighters minds when fighting him. Have to be absolutely on top of your tactics and strategy or he will end your night just like that.

It’s scary, he did absolutely nothing for nearly 7 rounds and then KOs Ortiz with the first right hand that connected. I actually think him and Ruiz could be the most interesting fight out the ones available just now.

Yeah Ruiz has rematch against Anthony Joshua coming up in the next couple of weeks, take care of business there first, Wilder vs Fury and then we will see. Haven’t been this excited about heavyweight division in a long time.

think Joshua might smoke him this time. if not then he’s going to struggle to keep much of a foothold in the sport
