Had no idea Bellew was facing Usyk.

Props to his bravery, but he’s getting fucked up


#566

Brook is going to sleep Khan.

And I have a horrible feeling that Canelo is going to beat GGG on Saturday.


#567

He’s not going to knock him out, that’s for sure. Not sure I can see him outworking GGG either.


#568

Khan was disappointing but who knows if the plan wasn’t to go the 12 rounds anyway


#569

Khan’s chin is so bad.


#570

Yawn

@SRCJJ just like you say, this is just tragic


#571

Yeah, this is just sad. The first fight was fucking years too late and shit, no way they’re getting my money for this


#572

Absolutely terrible. On a side note, look forward to what excuse Khan comes up with now to avoid the Brook fight.


#573

If there is an audience for McGregor vs Mayweather people shouldn’t complain about this one imo. Manny is still this active and stuff.


#574

Perhaps the people complaining about this fight also thought that Mayweather vs McGregor was bullshit?

Or perhaps the people complaining about this fight are doing so because they think its unnecessary and bound to be shit, but were curious about Mayweather vs McGregor because they wanted to see a boxing/UFC crossover purely out of curiosity?

I don’t really see what your objection is here to people thinking this fight is bullshit tbh


#575

Both are freak show fights. Same shit, different names. I hope people are as consistent.

The curiosity towards a MMA/Boxing crossover is nonsense. It was a boxing match between an amateur boxer and a professional boxer.


#576

Tbf Mayweather McGregor hadn’t been done before whereas this has.

There’s no novelty factor. Nobody will care about this one anyways


#577

Nah. Boxing and UFC meeting was a freak show. This is not that and I don’t think you’re comparing like for like.

For what it’s worth, I thought that fight was bullshit and I didn’t watch it either, not that this is really relevant to the discussion.


#578

Mayweather/McGregor was at least more competitive than Mayweather/Pacquaio was, and far more entertaining.


#579

Mayweather/McGregor wasn’t even remotely competitive and was basically a sparring match in which Floyd never even bothered to try and operate at a higher gear.


#580

I disagree, it really wasn’t lol


#581

Well we can agree to disagree,


#582

Predictable that Golden Boy would cook the cards.

Golovkin won that 8-4.


#583

Well that was very predictable. The whole thing was set up for a Canelo win. GGG had to knock him out, and he couldn’t.

There was no way the judges would make the same mistake twice.

@SRCJJ Can you remember a title fight where the champion was made to walk in first? That was just odd.
