Canelo v GGG confirmed for September!

Should be fantastic! 18 months ago I'd have said GGG would outclass him easily but now I think it's a 50/50.

The BBC now have a weekly boxing podcast which is usually well worth a listen (if you can stand Steve Bunce, personally don't mind him) and goes up on a Monday.

Tyson Fury interview this week: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p052b4p8

Press conference to this one was good with the Turkish bloke's trainer kicking off with someone and yelling
"I WILL FUCK YOUR WIFE IN YOUR BED!"

Crolla Burns for me. Pissed off Eubank’s constantly on PPV, I’d like to see more of him.

Just switched over for that too. There's also Selby v Flores on channel 5.
Fancy fucking scheduling all this lot at the same time...

I loved that whatever the result. I think Crolla has it.

Carl Froch talks too much though.

Can't argue with a tight decision either way.

Haye vs Bellew in a bit.

Hope Haye gets put firmly on his dumb arse.

Solid stream here

that was fantastic, say what you want but these guys both come to fight. Tony is an underrated fighter and given Hayes decline he was just too quick and powerful
rally good watch

It was a terrible fight, a WWE circus. Haye is clearly well past his best and has been for years. At cruiserweight and in his pomp Haye would have destroyed the limited Bellew. If Bellew competed in the cruiserweight division now with the talent there he wouldn’t last a few rounds and a decent heavyweight would knock him out. The fact he called out a retired light heavyweight speaks volumes about where he is in the scheme of things.

Boxing is really healthy the moment with Lomachenko vs Linares next weekend and Usyk vs Gassiev coming up. Golovkin, staying active against a scratch opponent, showed class and poise last night. There’s so much to like about boxing right now. We don’t need this sort of Hearn-sponsored exhibition nonsense.

Sad to see that Haye is an absolute shadow of the fighter he once was. All his power seemed drained. No timing, no balance and couldn't gauge punch distance at all. Now his legacy will be these two shit shows rather than the very, very decent fighter he was seven or eight years ago. 

Re: Boxing Thread

There was a point early in their first fight where Haye landed a big right and Bellew just shrugged it off.
10 years ago that would have floored him.

As soon as I saw that I lumped a few quid on Bellew (a decent fighter, but not world class), and did the same on Saturday.

Not only is Haye a busted flush, but he's been that for most of past decade.

Watching a stream of Selby v Warrington here - http://www.streamendous.com/ch_a.php?22 - bit of an arse lots of pop ups, just wondering who the strong cardiff accented guy is?

Sounds like Steve Robinson, but didn't know if he did that, way too guttural and not nasally enough to be Barry based Nicky Piper?

Dunno, anyway enjoy the Kaiser Chiefs.

Tyson Fury's opponent has been announced, and a softer introduction back into the ring you could not hope to see. A 39 year old Albanian cruiserweight stands in his path. I can only presume Mark Di Mori is already booked elsewhere

Anyone watching Fury tomorrow?

Re: Boxing Thread

I'll probably catch up with it at some point.
Fury's a weird one. His technique is all over the place but, at a time of few (if any) genuinely decent heavyweights, he's unpredictable enough to cause them all problems.
It would not surprise me if he won the title again.

I actually had a small bet on Alvarez last night as I suspected unless if was really one sided, Alvarez was always going to get the benefit of the doubt if it went to the judges and he did!

A re  match is something to look forward to, but I'd back Alvarez again, there was not much in it last night, GGG will be 37 when it happens and as we have seen in both fights, judges are always going to be inclined to give it to the cash cow coming into his prime rather than an ageing GGG.

Anybody going to be watching Wilder v Fury at the weekend? I'm weighing up between being genuinely curious to see it against the probable 4am fight time start coupled with the dread that it will just be 12 ponderous rounds of Fury holding and pushing. Fury seems to be a much more likeable figure these days, though (if you ignore the previous misogyny and homophobia) but I'm still hoping Wilder sparks him out.
