Boxing 2021

I’ve been surprised about the lack of boxing chat on the boards over the last few months so I thought I’d create a new thread ahead of the old-school feeling “Rumble on the Rock” as Povetkin and Whyte meet again, this time in… Gibraltar. Crowd of around 500 apparently as well so it should be a good watch. Anyone tuning in?

It’s been a decent start to the year - Ryan Garcia has justified some of the hype by getting up off the canvas to stop Luke Campbell, Josh Warrington was on the end of a major upset against Mauricio Lara, and Lawrence Okolie looked very impressive when winning the WBO world cruiserweight title last weekend.

Loads more fights to come including Canelo vs. BJS in a word super-middleweight title unification and all the world super-lightweight titles on the line as Josh Taylor faces Jose Ramirez. Oh and maybe Fury-Joshua but who knows…

Povetkin look a little chunky at the weigh in or was that just me?

Also RIP Marvin Hagler

Ridiculous 2nd to last fight on a ppv card. Disgrace.

Wardley winning with the judo leg sweep too

The Cheeseman fight was an absolute cracker

Decent fight, this. Whyte looks great but did at this stage in the first fight

Great performance

Listening on the radio but Whyte sounded absolutely dominant.

Don’t think there’s any need for Povetkin to keep going. Looked very old tonight

Knockout was brutal. Well fought Whyte

The Carl Frampton world title fight is on 5 now.

the undercard was decent at least
