As much as I'm looking forward to this fight, these two are the absolute worst at Promos :lol: if he ever fights Fury the equivalent sit downs will be a massacre.

Conor Benn headlining the Matchroom card tonight. Should be a serious test against Formella.

A couple of fun heavyweight fights in support: Wardley vs. Lartey and Babic vs. Little.

Cracking first round between Babic and Little. Little needs to try and take this a few rounds.

Ffs :lol:

Babic is distinctly average. Don’t know where Little’s reported improved conditioning was; literally exhausted after two rounds.

Babic is entertaining but far to small to make a dent with the big boys, he was very light (for a heavyweight) and still had a lot of back fat so he probably can't get any bigger, I'll definitely tune into his next fight though.

Agree that he’s a good watch but it will unravel against anyone with a bit of stamina and footwork.

Impressive KO from Wardley. Decent prospect but could also be on the small side.

Looking forward to this Benn fight, Loved watching his dad and he spent a lot of time in Newcastle back in the day with his mates from the army

Career-best performance.

Benn’s boxing really has improved dramatically. Still gets hit a bit too often but puts his punches together very well.

I wouldn’t have given him a hope against Josh Kelly 18 months ago but that’s now an interesting fight.

I'd like to see him fight Parker next. They are both engaging personalities and Parker is better than Chisora imo.

He'll likely get a fight for the WBO belt as think Joshua will just chuck it if it gets in the way of the Fury fight.
 
Parker is ranked 3 by the WBO. Dubois is ranked 2 but I don't think they will be in any hurry to chuck him in with Usyk.


Parker/Usyk would be a fight I would like to see

Talking about Dubois, is he as good as some say? I know he has had some highlight reel knockouts against questionable opponents, I guess Joyce is an upgrade in opponent but I haven't see enough of JJ to form a fair opinion to know if he is a genuine challenge for DD.

I've watched all of his televised fights and he's absolutely phenomenal..........best young British heavyweight I've ever seen at that age. He'll annihilate Joyce but the Usyk fight would be far too soon for him.

I've just been reading up on Tyson vs. Jones Jr.

It's an exhibition which is fine, but there's no judges and no winner will be announced. They're not allowed to knock each other out, and if either fighter is cut the fight is immediately stopped. :lol:

I did read that, I had very little interest in this anyway so no interest at all in it now. Really hope nobody gets hurt!

As in good shape as Tyson looks, he’ll get taken the 8 rounds and look dead on his feet for 6 of them, realise again that there was a reason he stayed away from boxing for so long and go back to his weed farm and stand up shows.

It’ll be on YouTube within 30 minutes but purchase it if you want to support a good cause (whatever one it is) 🙂

It’s been tough watching people pretend it’s for real, but they can’t say they weren’t warned.

Great weekend for boxing, Dubois and Tyson I'm wanting to win, but fascinated anyway if not.

f*** paying for it. I'm watching it free ways. If they sold these fights at £5 I'd pay it for a solid and reliable 4k stream.

£20 just feels like nah, f*** off. :lol:

Proper step up for Dubois tonight, no doubt. Joyce may look as though as he's boxing in slow motion at times but he's an absolute unit and doesn't stop coming forward.

Odds on the outcome are probably about right but I think there's value in the Over at 6.5 Rounds. Don't see either man going away in a hurry.

Reasonable chance the winner will end up fighting Usyk for a vacant WBO world title next year.

I’ve got Joyce winning late tbh. He has his flaws but I think he’s nails and can fight at a higher pace than most heavyweights, and he has plenty of power.

I can definitely see the case for it if he's a bit more elusive than usual. We just don't how high Dubois's ceiling is, what happens when he gets backed up? If he unravels like he threatened to do against Lartey then you may well be right.

Potentially the best non-PPV main event for a good while.
