Enjoy yourself mate, hope it’s a cracker.

Can’t pretend he’s the most entertaining boxer but I’ve got a personal investment in Allen - Thomas, and at least that’s competitive on paper. Everything else looks like showcase fights.

Bets? Chudinov looks value at 10/3. Sturm is the best win either of them has had since Degale probs, unless he’s fallen off the cliff without me noticing.

I’m crazy jealous - really wish I could be in Sheffield for this. As it is I’m home and my Virgin box has picked today to shit itself and die. Gonna have to stream it I guess.

Okolie should be fun way down on the card, if you enjoy the ever popular ‘British olympian smashing some mug up in 30 seconds’ genre. I like that dude a lot. Apart from that it’s a so so card up till the top two fights. But I expect they’ll be more than enough.

Slightly lazy, but any links would be greatly appreciated gents

Looks like couple of cracking fights. Thanks

#545

never been happier to lose money, was screaming there


#546

Got a couple of quid on Spence to win having been knocked down at 10/1.


#547

one a piece, kell’s crashing the distance a bit awkwardly, actually playing into his hands a bit when spence pressures.


#548

Liking the co-commentator, some good insight on the change in tactics


#549

Same from me. Spence looks stronger on the inside but Kell looks sharper elsewhere.


#550

yup, another to spence, can’t believe he can keep that sort of pace up though, looking to drag kell into a firefight.


#551

Commentary team are making out like Brook is dominating - I have him ahead buy I feel I’ve been generous in a round or two.

“Spence just isn’t good enough” says Froch. 'The fuck is he watching?!


#552

fuck knows, i’ve got kell by one now, tied the 4th. spence is starting to look ragged though and kell is timing the right lead.great fight.


#553

I gave Kell the 4th just because the judges never give tie rounds these days. Froch says Brook is up 5. I don’t mind a bit of patriotic bias bit c’mon Carl.


#554

Spence is getting off first without reply now. Worrying. I fear Kell is burning out.


#555

All bar the second habe been very tight. Think kell will take a decision


#556

got spence one up but winning the last three. worried that brooks fading here


#557

I hope you’re right. He looks spent.


#558

Raising his hand :joy:


#559

brook is a fucking man.

can’t win on my card. hope spence has emptied his self.


#560

Similar to the GGG fight I reckon. Brook got him clean a few times and Spence didn’t respect his power. Started walking through him. Same eye socket injury too? Couldn’t see
