    Saturday 09th June 2018

    MANCHESTER (Warren/BT)

    Terry Flanagan 1/6
    Maurice Hooker 57/10

    Decent fight this looking at their respective records, Flanagan flies under radar but is a proper old school fighter (not much power but decent combos), a World Champion going for his second title. I don't know enough about his opponent.

    Tyson Fury 1/41
    Sefer Seferi 28/1

    Comeback fight for Tyson, will smash up this CW (2nd best CW in Albania). What has Tyson got left though?

    LOS ANGELES

    Jermell Charlo 1/9
    Austin Trout 15/2

    The Charlo brothers are hyped big time in USA and Jermell is 30-0. Not seen him fight. Trout is a decent opponent, world class (10th world championship fight) IMO but Charlo should have too much if he is as good as touted.

    Leo Santa Cruz 1/4
    Abner Mares 9/2

    These guys have fought before in 2015 and LSC won MD. LSC has improved since beating Frampton. LSC UD.

    LAS VEGAS

    Jeff Horn 6/1
    Terence Crawford 2/13

    Crawford is one of the best P4P at the moment but is stepping up a weight class to WW. He has too much pure talent and will destroy Horn who beat the shell of Pacquaio.

    Saturday 14th July 2018 (O2/Sauerland/BT?)
    George Groves 8/11
    Callum Smith 5/4

    Fookin love this fight. WBSS final. Too many unknowns to make a definite prediction. GG would destroy Callum if 100% fit but the shoulder injury he sustained against CEJ may not be 100% healed (I know all about shoulder injuries taking a long time to heal). Callum is very long, hits very hard but this is a big step up for him.

    Saturday 09th June 2018 (O2/Matchroom/SBO)
    Dillian Whyte 11/10
    Joseph Parker 10/11

    Bookies cannot split these and neither can I with great confidence. Great fight against two opponents who have only been beaten by AJ, Whyte being KOed in 7, UD against Parker. Both hit hard, both durable, I favour the more orthodox boxer in Parker and not the ex-MMA Whyte. Super fight though.

    Bit out of touch with boxing, always been a George Groves fan, seems like a decent lad too.

    Tyson Fury, I actually like the guy, especially how he's been so open about his mental health problems too (been there). I think he could pull of a decent comeback run. Everyone who's sparred with him says he is an incredibly special talent.

    Whyte could beat Parker. Hits hard and has some of the best body shots in the HW division.

    Wasn't a clear cut victory by any means vs Pacman either, Manny put him on his arse in the mid rounds and he took a hell of a lot of strikes. Started v aggressively but as he tired a little momentum shifted. Also landed a good few shots but nothing that overly worried Pacquaio so I'd say he defo lacks power. I predict Crawford will make light work of him tbh

    I didn't see the fight mate but the shell of Pacman and his camp felt robbed I have read.
