defo, it’s embarrassing to be a fan of the sport at times with the amount of gofundmes for former fighters you see, at least skoglund is from a proper country with a public health service. hopefully the money side of that is covered at least.

such a shame, he looks a really talented lad.


#1101

The recent stuff with roc nation and Daniel Franco is absolutely heart breaking


#1102

Anyone watching this York hall card? Lads just come out to sailing by rod Stewart faded into the dropkick murphys

billy joe looked genuinely superb against lemieux there. looking at it after the fact it is a bit of a gift match up, but he was so much better than I’ve ever seen him. looks like ingle’s special sauce has sorted his cardio issues out as well. actually interested in the GGG fight now.

Just caught up with this. Incredible performance. Hand up - I predicted Saunders to get smashed to bits. I didn’t think he had it in him to go 12 without gassing and/or doing something stupid. But he made Lemieux look like an uncultured slugger throughout. He sounded focused and weirdly articulate in the interview he gave on Costello & Bunce’s podcast last week, it sounds like the move to Sheffield has worked wonders. I hope he can keep his head in the game. I’d love to see him fight Jacobs next though I reckon there’s not enough money in that fight for either man to risk derailing their shot at the Canelo/GGG winner.


#1105

that’s the big worry innit, really doubt he’ll touch jacobs so it’s gonna be september at the absolute earliest before a big fight, not sure i trust him to stay at this level. wo tho, what a performance. in rd 7 he looked like mayweather at times.

Joshua - Parker on the 31st of March in Cardiff then. Seems short notice but I guess it’s been in the pipeline for ages. Anyone give Parker a chance? Looked terrible against fury the only time I’ve seen him


#1107

i’ve only watched him twice as far as i can remember but i thought he lost both. people who know more than me seem to rate him but i’ve not seen it yet, got decent power and a good engine, best bet is probably trying to get to the late rounds as fresh as he can and letting aj shag himself out.

worth a new thread for 2018?


#1108

Yeah do it


#1109

Zelfa’s lost this.

Great fight.


#1110

Absolute cracker. No way it was 5 rounds, correct result though


#1111

Two points to Clark would’ve been about right (a round up plus the knockdown).


#1112

No way that lad is 21 :joy::joy:


#1113

They’re gonna struggle to get Dubois fights. He hits hard


#1114

Chisora talk’s daft. Put him in with a couple of punchbags - Sprott, Williams maybe, a few wily Europeans, then move him up to Sexton, Cornish, maybe Dave Allen. Delboy’s eighteen months off.


#1115

They’ll have to put a big wedge behind him. Matchroom spent a fortune on building up Joshua’s experience.
You’re right about him being nowhere near ready for chisora though. He would be last step before a world title eliminator


#1116

smith is pretty balls, this kickboxer just took a round off him.


#1117

Yarde is gonna get dropped when he comes up against someone with a big right. You can’t shoulder roll while stood still


#1118

joe gallagher boxers :poop::poop::poop::poop:


#1119

That French lad was nails tbf to him
