    Be interesting to see how Usyk gets on vs AJ if it goes ahead
    He's another character

    genuinely Wilder is the most exciting/unpredictable fighter in the mix. lands 1 bomb on either of them early on & it's game over lol

    I reckon they'll smash PPV records.. be fucking crazy not to make these fights happen

    Josh Taylor has pleaded guilty to racially abusing a bouncer after being thrown out of a nightclub in Edinburgh.
    The boxing world champion was chucked out of Shanghai nightclub in the early hours of Sunday morning before launching into a rant.
    He called the doorman "a gay looking c***" and "a big Orange looking c***" before police were called to the scene.
    Taylor, 28, who was fined £350, pleaded not guilty to possessing cocaine which was accepted during his hearing at Edinburgh Sheriff Court.

    Canelo vacates WBO Light Heavyweight Title

    Interesting to see who he fights next. Would love it to be BJS, BJS has WBO SM title and I don't think you can hold two belts, different weights in same FED at same time so may be an indication that is the fight being lined up. We'll see.

    AJ ducks no-one.

    Klitschko, Povetkin, Whyte, Takam, Parker and Ruiz rematch.

    Now he wants Usyk.

    Exactly the reason I like him and the way a true champion should conduct himself. "Bring on the challengers and I'll smash them".

    As a personality, not really, quite dull, some racist undertones, the pseudo-intellectual bullshit does my swede in too but as a fighter, of course, there is nothing to dislike!!

    nah he wants Usyk now before Usyk gets into a decent run of form in the HWs. And before he gets the weight on and can carry it.

    Usyk is 32yo mate, he hasn't got long to get going at HW, especially as he had 350 amateur fights so he has a lot of miles on the clock. He is heavier than Wilder at 98KG.

    Do you think he should try to put weight on and maybe lose some of his silky speed and foot skills? Or maybe try to remain elusive?

    I don't know TBH.

    Everybody was stating AJ was taking the easy option by fighting 38yo Pulev, now they are stating that he is fighting Usyk before he is ready.

    :rofl::rofl:

    I’d say he needs some weight on IMO compared to some of the cunts in the HW.

    Wilder is just a big lanky mofo aint he. All he has is powder and it’s a hit and hope as all it takes is one bomb to land and your done.

    AJ is 108KG (was for Ruiz II, so +10kg on Usyk) and has 10cm reach advantage (198 to 208cm).

    AJ 1/2
    OU 6/4
    Draw 25/1

    I won't back AJ at 1/2 but I expect him to win. Usyk is a notorious slow starter and AJ will win first four rounds by jabbing and throwing some right hands and staying busy. Usyk will then start to come into the fight but I expect AJ to stand his ground, dominate the centre of the ring and keep Usyk on the back foot. Usyk creates beautiful angles with his footwork but doesn't have great power, so I expect AJ to overpower and dominate him over R5-12 with a late stoppage or a wide decision.

    He can let AJ fight Pulev then and wait his turn.
