If the 70 mill for.Joshua is true then it just shows you that these purses are set on the perception of a fighter and what is saleable rather than tangible ability.

First REAL test for.Joshua (that wasnt a 41 year old) and he got battered.

He's an average fighter if you go down the annals of history , yet he's getting Lennox Lewis type money. I can only imagine what a peak Lewis would do to Joshua.

I reckon a similar job to what he did on Michael Grant

I agree. Much to my mate's dismay, I've always said Joshua is just another Frank Bruno. Nice bloke,too muscly, who is just a big puncher. I think Frank fought better fighters and had a better chin too 8-)

Campbell v Loma tomorrow night. I don't think Luke has a chance but it should be a decent one to watch, always is with Vasily.

Some interesting fights on the undercard too.

I rate Buatsi, he'll win but not sure it'll be another KO.

Edwards I think wins by decision.

Fury has to beat Povetkin for the sake of his career really too.

Buatsi vs Yarde is the obvious fight to make for Christmas/early next year

Loma should win easily I think, might be cagey few opening rounds

I'm not sure Fury wins, Parker outboxed him and Fury looked awful the other week against bleeding Samuel Peters

I'm not massively knowledgeable about the sport (tend to watch the Box office stuff) .

Fury just look awful (seen him a few times) and deserved to lose against a guy who is 40 in a few days.

Edwards got out of jail was getting battered by the Mexican before the dodgy punch

Campbell is giving it a great go against Loma. 8th round and it could go either way.

Well done Luke Campbell. Thouroughly enjoyed that. That was proper - a terrific fight at the highest level.

Campbell did himself proud and the biggest compliment I can pay him is that Lomachenko had to be at his very best to win that even though it was obviously wide on the cards.

Legit respect between the two and what a great advert for the sport.

MM :thup: Lomachenko is so good to watch, credit to Campbell too

Buatsi looked good as per
Edwards bailed out there, he was in trouble, perhaps he should look at moving up in weight
Fury looked awful, he needed to prove himself and came well short

Who next for Loma?

I guess we know what part of Tyson’s face Wilder will be targeting. Fury’s going to need to buy his cut man a new car after that fight. Those were two nasty cuts. Cut aside, it was a pretty dominant performance. He doesn’t like that 12 round though. He was wobbling in that last round.

Earned his money Fury against a game, awkward south-paw who’s walk-forward style troubled the big man all night.

Did well in the end to make the bell and a deserved albeit attritional win. Hope the Tyson camp looked after the cut man. He’s saved them a fortune.

Anyone see the GGG fight last week. I thought he looked old, out of ideas and was very venerable to a good body shot. I thought a draw would have been a fair result and even though he knocked the guy down in the first round, GGG lost loads. The cards were wrong two - there's no way he won that fight by two rounds. Canello must be licking his lips at the next fight with GGG.

Anyone watching the boxing tonight - I’m kinda expecting Chisora to knock out price within the first few rounds. If it goes past 6 and price has kept his chin out the way he has a chance.

I see Nigel Benn's fight is off permanently after incurring an injury.

Could it just be possible that all he was doing was using his fame to help promote Area Level Instagram Superstar Conor Benn's ascendancy to the top 😃 whose fanbase on his profile ask questions such as " when u fightin Chris Eubank champ?"

I hate that kid with a passion and just cannot wait until he has to fight someone who is even half decent.

Conor Benn has done well to be pretty much disliked by all boxing fans, considering how popular his father was and still is.
