    Default LTLF Boxing thread

    I think he’d batter Joshua.

    Joshua wants another crack at Uysk ,but I can’t see him troubling the better boxer.

    Does Fury wait and set up a bout against the winner of that one, a proper, unification scrap? Or is there anyone else really worth his time?

    I think he’ll wait for that fight and then retire. He won’t fight anyone in between

    Have to imagine Whyte gets his shot if he gets through Wallin at the end of this month, ideally followed up by Usyk-Fury for all the belts

    Fury will beat the shit out of Joshua, AJ would of lost the fight weeks before they got in the ring, Tyson will break him mentally.

    Tyson is on another level to the current HW scene. Usyk is incredible but will struggle against Tyson due to how big he is, 280 is very heavy when it’s leaning on you and giving you body shots all night.

    I believe Dillian Whyte would knock out Anthony Joshua at this stage of their careers.

    Whyte has just kept on improving since his loss to Joshua years ago. His boxing skills and patience have developed and he looks a threat to any heavyweight in the division. It's scandalous he's had to wait so long for a title shot.

    His left hook will take anyone out, apart from Fury, who will be too much for him. Fury is too big and too skilful for all of them.

    Was so chuffed for Fury, don't think I've ever wanted someone to win as badly as I did in this fight.

    Guy is an inspiration. A role model for everyone, but particularly for working class men and those struggling with mental health problems. If you haven't listened to his interview with Joe Rogan (and a few other outlets) talking about his lowest point driving his sports car.. I highly recommend it. As a father myself I could tear up thinking about how low he must have been to get to that point.

    The guys life is such an amazing story

    Completely agree.

    His life story should be summed up as 'I get knocked down, I get up again'

    'Chumbawumba. What a bunch of dossers'

    Fury and Eubank win through their opponents quitting on their stools. Savannah Marshall wins by a TKO. This has been some tragic boxing.

    I’ve watched plenty of women’s fights now over the past year or two, it is like watching white collar stuff. I don’t know how people can get excited by it, I don’t think I have watched a single fight where I thought wow, that was some quality stuff.

    Zach Parker may be a sheep shagger, but he is fucking good. I’d love to see him smash Eubank up. I have to say though, I did find it amusing when the commentator suggested a fight with Canelo at Pride Park next year .

    Zach Parker is good but I think Felix Cash is the dangerman in British boxing at a similar weight. Another traveller doing the business in pro boxing.

    Parker should fight John Ryder to see where he's at, then look for a world title shot.

    I’d imagine it will be catch weight around 150, khan wants 147 as he knows Brook is killing himself to boil down, Brook is more comfortable at 154.

    Sums it up really. I have been a massive Kell Brook fan and followed him through his entire career but this just reeks of last payday sort of fight. I fully expect the press conferences to be heated to try and build some interest in it because there is just apathy out there for it at the minute.

    Both well past their best, with Brook weight drained at a catchweight of 149lbs.

    Khan was the one avoiding the fight for years because he knew Brook was too big and strong for him.

    Even though Brook showed a major vulnerable side against Crawford by getting wobbled all over the ring from a stiff southpaw jab, Khan is still shitting himself and has made all the demands, including a six figure penalty for anyone who weighs in above 149lbs.

    Khan walks around at 162lbs and Brook walks around at around 180lbs.

    I was always a Brook fan too and my fear is that his punch resistance is gone now. He took big punches against Golovkin and Spence Jnr and didn't get taken out as easily as he did against Crawford. Does Crawford hit harder than Golovkin and Spence Jnr? Ricky Burns's performance against Crawford always looks all the more impressive now.

    Anyway, Brook was so slow and ponderous in that fight so I could sense Father Time had caught up with him. That's also clearly why Khan is now interested, but he's still wary of Brook's ability to hurt him.

    I think Khan outboxes him over a number of rounds unfortunately with his speed and Brook will need to try and walk him down. Hopefully Brook catches up with him in the later rounds.

    Pointless doing this fight now. Brook would’ve battered him 6 years ago but now, who even cares? Brook is well past his best and I’d be surprised if he even made weight

    I know you need self confidence and a bit of bravado in combat sports, but Conlan is a bit too arrogant for my liking.

    Wood's the champion and Conlan said in the press conference: 'I know who he is. He has slow feet and a curly head'.

    I hope Wood jabs his head off and breaks him down.
