Dubois v Gorman tomorrow night for the British title. Should be a good, domestic dust up.

Good fight, but I don’t think it will be good to watch

Got a feeling it’s going to be a stinker

Just watched the Khan card.

What a piece of crap.

Watched an English Guy called Prince Ali or similar lose EVERY round to his opponent. He stood there with his gloves up, and tucked into his stomach and hardly threw a punch. No footwork or no head movement. Time to give it up Prince as you couldn't beat the boys down Peacocks Gym, let alone experienced world Champions.

H. Fury V's Peter - you could see from the moment Peter entered the ring he was unfit - fat basically. Fury jabbed him off most of the time, but then Peter tried to spoil it with punching after the break, deliberate low blows and general roughhouse tactics. Fury should have been able to box his head off but the fight quickly become a fiasco. It ended in a shambles with Peter saying he had hurt his shoulder as the ref separated him from Fury, despite Peter punched the ref in the face and busting his nose in the process. IMHO Peter should have been D/Q'ed earlier.

This fight shows that H Fury isn't ready for the big boys yet. BUT - he was in great shape, his jab looked sharp (initially) and he didn't flounder so fair play to him.

Khan V's Dib - seriously? Khan fights a guy that fights two weights below him for 7Mill in Saudi and beats him in 4 shocker. He was too fast, too powerful and too good all round for Dib, who never stood a chance. It shows that Khan certainly still has the hand speed and the movement, but with very little punishment coming his way, it was nothing more than a well paid work out for Khan. Still you can only beat who is put n front of you and it was another W for Khan.

The best part of the whole night was Duke Mackenzies summary. Honest, professional, informed and straight talking ("Peter's injury looked feigned, Fury is far from the finished article, Prince whatever was outclassed and Khan had nothing more than a good workout") -it was a joy to hear crystal clear analysis.

I watched the whole card for the Italian base boxing yesterday but t was so dreadful I can't even bring myself to write about it, apart from the fact that an English guy had the fight lost until late in the fight whereupon he knocked his opponent spark out and clinched the W.

No doubt in my mind that DDD will win tonight and go on to land my bet ....

Skybet go 5/1 for Dubois to hold at least one WORLD Championship belt by 1st Jan 2021

Just read that Pernell Whitaker lost his life in an unfortunate accident. He was struck by a car while crossing the road. Great boxer in his day. Hall of Famer. RIP Sweet Pea.

Decent fight i thought. DDD looks very capable, and far more pleasing on the eye that the Joyce fight which was on before. Think he may struggle a little with his character and "marketability". He hasnt got AJ's charisma, but looks a very good fighter with fast heavy hands.

My fear for him is that he becomes (if not already) Franks cash cow and that the pressure on him may build and build, not from the public but from his own stable.

Great card tonight:

- Another big win for Dillian Whyte who should finally get he’s world title shot, absolute disgrace that’s he’s been ranked number 1 for over 600 days with the WBC without getting a chance.
- Great performance by David Price. Guy has all the tools, just no chin! Boxed well tonight. Fingers crossed that Dave Allen is ok after being taken to hospital post bout.
- Superb 2nd round knockout by Del Chisora against a Pole who made life difficult for Deontay Wilder.

Special mention to Charlie Duffield, a big hammer who came up short against Dan Azeez. Suffered a nasty eye swelling within the first 30 seconds and could never get a foothold in the fight.

Great effort from Pac Man last night to outwork and outmove Keith Thurman over 12 rounds.

He’s ruled out fighting Khan incidentally.

Pacquaio Thurman - wow. What a great fight that was, Pacquaio is incredible at his age to be doing what he is doing to guys far younger than him who should be approaching their prime.

I would love to see him fight either Spence or Crawford

I wonder how exactly he might be achieving this remarkable level of youthfulness...

How has Kahn concluded the fight is agreed. :lol:

What a twat.

He’s so desperate to cash out with a fight vs Pac or Mayweather. He should just fight Brook get ko’d and call it a day, it’s been about 6 years since he had a fight that was even close to ‘50-50’.

Time to stop robbing the public in mismatches.

If it looks too good to be true it probably is I guess

Khan has become a bit of a joke, but he gave the public plenty

Brook on the other hand has wasted his career and talent waiting for a Khan payday. If they fight at 147 now Brook would be so drained I doubt he would even knock Khan out.

They'll never fight each other now, but it will will be Brook who will have the most regrets about his career when they call it a day. That GGG beatdown took a lot out of him imo.

I hope he got paid well enough for the Golovkin fight. His CV is basically a load of scrubs, Porter, more scrubs, Golovkin, Spence and now he is waiting around for the Khan pension top-up. Or we might just get Brook vs Carson Jones III.

No doubt Khan has achieved more in his career and has better wins on his CV but he’s been a joke for the last 5 years.

He either faces lower level feather fisted fighters or elite fighters he has no chance against.

I think even a drained Brook would catch him at some point, but we’ll probably never know.
