Caught doping, escapes a ban then gets a title shot. What an absolute joke

He was using drugs prescribed for high blood pressure and cleared by the WBC. Ortiz will be a big test for Wilder.

He is a fucking cheat. Caught before and just caught using a drug that happened to be used for high blood pressure or can also be used as for doping. Cunt should be banned for good. Should be a decent fight tho as Oritz hits hard enough to cause Wilder problems

It’s certainly a step up in class than the likes of Martin, Breazeale, Molina and Takkam who Parker beat. Wouldn’t be surprised if it went to points.

Not a step up from Klitschko though.  Big step up for Parker and his deluded promoter.

Amir Khan's pre-fight press conference with Phil Lo Greco was temporarily halted after a scuffle broke out between the fighters.

Both fighters were present at the Hilton Hotel in Liverpool ahead of Khan's highly-anticipated return to boxing at the Echo Arena, Liverpool, on April 21, live on Sky Sports.

The pair traded insults in the early stages, but it reached a climax when the Canadian made comments about Khan's wife and family, with the former world champion appearing to throw a glass of water over the 'Italian Sensation'.

Each of the fighters' entourages had to be separated by the security team as tempers frayed, with undercard fighters Sean Dodd and Tommy Coyle - dressed as Batman and Superman - attempting to separate both parties.

You couldn’t make it up! ?

There was bad blood between the fighters before the conference after Lo Greco started a war of words on social media.

Khan, who has spent two years out of the ring, has signed a three-fight deal with Eddie Hearn and Matchroom boxing with the 31-year-old still holding ambitions of regaining a world title at welterweight.

I've just watched the press conference and Khan flipped when Lo Greco said you lost to Canelo, lost your family and then tweeted the heavyweight champion of the world to say he could have your leftovers :lol:

Talk about a low blow :lol:

Khan hasn't been the same since his win over Devon Alexander imo.

Eubank v Groves this weekend is gonna be a cracker 

If Eubank is the real deal he wins if not Groves will beat him.

For me its Groves if he doesn't gas towards the end of the fight

Crazy that theres only 6 months difference in age and Groves has only had 3 fights more than Eubank.

If groves establishes his jab early I think he will out box Eubank. This fight will tell everyone if Eubank is the real deal. Groves might not be the fighter he once was but still punches very hard be interesting to see how Eubank handles the body shots and being the smaller man

Agree,if Groves can get his jab going he can dictate the early stages of the fight.

My only concern is, if Groves tires late on because Eubank can be relentless. 

Hope Groves does a number on him.

Should be a cracker though ! ?

Groves is tidy odds for this weekend, don't understand how Eubank is favourite.

I like Groves but Eubank jr owned him at the press conference. Groves was flapping like fuck with the suit comments. ?
