Not heard anything yet mate wee man was in the ring shadow boxing with Kash Tuesday night, never mentioned it.

Quality if it’s on mate that’s the fight Kash has wanted.

Hearn confirmed it on IFL TV done both could fight separate this year but the fight is signed for early 2022 at hydro 👍

I thought Nick Diaz was quite a sad spectacle if I'm being honest. He looked every bit his 38 years and more when you compare it to how Lawler (who is a year older) moved. 

Schevchenko is an absolute monster and Volkanovski is a machine as well. He looked like he could go another 5 rounds at the end of that fight.

Between him asking for a higher weight, comments before and after the fight and how he looked in there, I think he had absolutely no desire to be in there. Only reason I can think of is he needs/wanted the money badly. 
 

Agree on Shevchenko absolutely outrageous nobody is coming close to her soon as long as she stays focused.

The only threat to Shevchenko or Nunes is if they agree to fight at bantamweight.

Did you see before the fight Diaz was saying he doesn’t know why he’s fighting Lawlor and not Usman? Fuck sake imagine Usman in there with that Diaz 😂😂

Aye that’s a terrible mismatch based on Diaz performance last night. I don’t know what was going on but unless he has a trick card up his sleeve it looked like he was just there for the money.

No he isn't. You don't beat who he has and be a unified champ and be shite.  

Wouldn’t say he’s shite I would say he’s a limited boxer who’s over achieved in an era where we’re not blessed with many if any true world class heavyweights. Also seems to have lost the heart he showed against Klitscho. When he takes heavy shots now you see his demeanour instantly change, looks like he doesn’t want to be there. Needs to find that fire again he had at the start of his career. I’m not sure he can though.

He had a boxing match with a master boxer. And he's a bigger guy. It was terrible tactics. He gave himself no chance of winning. If he's not willing to buckle down and be prepared to get wacked then hang em up and go live in Dubai or something.

Styles make fights I guess but probably not fighting like that. Maybe if he just went for the body and inside fighting. But Fury I think is the king right now. 

 

Fury’s too smart for AJ but definitely a fight I would like to see even without the belts on the line.

Fury v Usyk could be an interesting match up. What’s your thoughts on that possible bout mate?

Fury beats Usyk, too big and too awkward, would fiddle his way through the fight comfortable on the scorecards, would be more interesting than fury dismantling AJ right enough.

All depends how Usyk handles Fury’s size. I like Fury, he’s the number one heavyweight right now but he’s certainly not unbeatable. He’s been dropped twice by wilder, battered by Wallin to the point of it was the other way round it would have been stopped, dropped by Steve Cunningham and has a poor ko rate for a heavyweight. Usyk is pound for pound top 2 or 3 in the world right now.

What Fury does have is a brilliant boxing brain, he’ll know how to use his size advantage and make things difficult for Usyk but anyone thinking he’ll have it easy could well be in for a shock if they meet.

Usyk wouldn't get past Fury jab. Fury would keep him outside then just clinch him all night when he tried to get inside.
