Told you guys Hearn put a clause in the contract and chooses where the fight is.

Looks like Joshua settled on England, Eddie Hearn must of talked sense into him because he was considering having another fight in New York ........ looks like Joshua is susceptible to distraction if he can't fight abroad without losing focus.

What do you think about Usyk and his future heavyweight career? Will he reach #1 PFP pos in next 2 years?
The biggest bookies bet only 2.5/1 cof that he will be: top online bookmakers :goal1:

Joshua too shook to run it back in America.

Embarrassing, Ruiz should play hardall.

When Conor lost to Nate at 170 he didn't demand that the rematch be at 155, he wanted it at 170 again.

Dana White and his coaches even tried to convince him to take it at 155 and he refused.

That's a winner's mentality.

Joshua doesn't have the minerals, mentally weak.

Nope.

Too small and his skills will be reduced carrying that extra weight.

A shorter fighter who relies on skill and movement to win and doesn't have good punching power .......... puts on weight, is not a good combination.

He'll beat your Chisora's and co because they are the same height and don't have a great reach but he's not beating the bigger HW's.

Even if he is the better man P4P.

I think the fame has landed on Joshua.

He may never be the same again, if you get treated too much like a prize poodle instead of a Pit Bull you start to become one.

When he looked like he couldn't believe Ruiz had dared to attack him I knew it then, Joshua has turned "pussy hole".

That's one prop I'll give to Wilder, he's down and ready like he's fighting in a back alley every time, but again, he never got the red carpet treatment which is why he hasn't gone soft.

Vegas fights are utter shite for the people who back AJ hardest, I don't see him trying to alienate them by fighting there.

Pacquiao vs Thurman tomorrow.

Will be incredible if Pac at 40 can beat an undefeated champion and further add to his legacy.

I reckon they'll do it in Cardiff.

Big stadium with the option of a closed roof. Ideal.

Chisora vs Szpilka starting very soon. Allen vs Price after that and then Whyte vs Rivas.

Predictions: Chisora wins on points, Price knocks out Allen early, and Whyte vs Rivas is a 50/50 for me, i think the odds on Rivas are ridiculous (i pick Whyte to win a controversial decision).

EDIT:At least i got both guys to win, but f***ked them rounds, nobody gives a shite about them.
More importantly:

:1990_dancing.gif: PRICEY IS BACK! TIME TO UNIFY THE DIVISION! :1990_dancing.gif:

Main event now:
Whyte outboxes Rivas easily.

0/3 f**k at least i recognized Allen was shit.

Pacquiao is unreal.

To beat an undefeated champion in his prime at 40, wow.

Great performance too, his best in almost a decade.

David Price has a very good punch. A hard jab and a good knockout punch.

But his chin...

If his ability to take a punch was better, he’d be right up there.

Maxim Dadashev has died from injuries he suffered during his fight on Friday.

R.I.P.

Boxing is so much more dangerous than MMA.
