Only benefit of Usyk fighting Bellew, is that it will be in the UK and I can watch the guy in the flesh. Wouldn't bet on it going past 6 rounds though. I don't know how Ukraine breed them.

Would love to go to a big fight in Europe one time, Poland, Ukraine or Germany.

Bellew wants nothing to do with Usyk, he'd be totally embarrassed and probably knocked out even though Usyk doesn't hit that hard. It's never happening and they'll use the excuse that there's not enough money in it.

Can't see it. He isn't getting that amount of money from anyone anyone else bar maybe Ward. Have a sneaky suspicion Eddie will try take it to Vegas. If you're gonna lose it might as well be to the proven top guy.

Billy Joe getting big money for an easy nights work. Andrade won't touch him.
Andrade is quick but BJS has elite boxing IQ. Timing beats speed and all that. Another boxing lesson there, so long as he's right. People underestimate Saunders power a little bit too, I think he could even stop Andrade as he is not a natural middleweight.

It's Hearn's promotion so BJS must be getting paid a truckload off this DAZN thing to go over there for it.

Who can make a call between Parker & Whyte then?

I've thought Parker from the start but Dillian has next level toughness & will to win - have a nagging doubt on Parker's ability to empty the well.

If Parker takes it toe to toe employing a safe guard like Chisora did then avoiding card controversy he should win. He's got superior handspeed - just needs to let em go in clusters and break him down gradually whilst keeping something in the gas tank for the later rounds cuz he ain't a great jabber so seeing out the fight behind the jab ain't really an option - especially against someone like Whyte.

Whyte is bit overrated in my opinion, the win against a highly medicated, steroid free, shot to shit 40 year old, fat bouncer has got people a bit too excited. If Parker boxes clever in and out of range and uses his fast hands to tee off inside he'll take a wide UD. It would be silly for Parker to engage in an all out war, that favours Dillian more. Credit to Whyte though, the guys got a massive set of bollocks and isn't scared of anyone.

Chisora is just a hard as fuck bastard aint he?
He just fucking loves getting punched in the face. Was buzzing with that knockout on saturday.

Looking like Usyk v Bellew is going to be made aswell around October/ November time, I'd love that to be at the MEN, although can see it being at the 02. Would love to watch Usyk live.

Is there not a genuine concern that Usyk might actually kill Bellew?

The big one.

Canelo had a good strategy first time round and will surely be boxing off the back foot again but with GGG you always end up at the ropes with his pressure anyway. I think GGG was too cautious when he backed him up to the ropes, he needs to unload more to the body and be willing to take the counter shots that come. I don't think he can hurt him from the middle of the ring as Canelo is too clever to get into something he can't finish. With GGG's chin, there's no point in getting involved trading with him like he wants you to. I'm not sure what Canelo can do much differently to be honest.

GGG by a couple of rounds again for me, same as the last one was but he'll need total pressure from the start all the way through as Canelo will be picking out the better, cleaner shots with his great technique. I felt GGG gave away 2 or 3 rounds at the start last time. Some fights are just unmissable and you have to set the alarm for them.

I can't wait for this one.

I just can't see past a GGG win this time round, although like everybody else I thought he won the last one. I think GGG can make improvements on the last fight, like you say he started slowly and gave away 3/4 rounds feeling his way into the fight, I don't see him doing that this time round. He'll be on the front foot from the off I'd imagine and I don't see a way that Canelo will be able to improve enough to get the victory, especially now he should be off the mexican meat.

Clenelo will no longer have the advantage of the Mexican meat, he'll be the far more skilful fighter and probably produce the cleaner work but GGG will walk him down, be the busier fighter and take the rounds.

End of round 9 right now, I'd have Canelo up. Last 3 rounds should be great.

edit: big round 10 for GGG!

edit: don't think I've got Canelo up anymore. See the scorecards though...
