Really hope this comes off and glad it's staged in the UK.

Will be interesting to see what style both fighters come out with.

Fury has transitioned from boxer to puncher and Joshua has tried doing the opposite.

Fury can be decked but has fantastic recuperative powers. No idea what game plan AJs team will employ. Steady pressure?

AJ will go straight down the middle and Fury will dance around him.

Should imagine this trilogy will be one last pay day for both before they ride off into the sunset.

Lots of boxing fans now accusing Fury of ducking Joshua because he has been quiet since Joshua accepted his deal.

It's only been two days :lol:

Canelo v GGG III this weekend. Most thought Golovkin won the 1st and the 2nd was close but Canelo is a BIG favourite for the rubber match with loads of 'experts' picking him to stop GGG.

I'm hoping Golovkin wins just because I love upsets. In his favour is that Canelo could be a bit drained from weight jumping. Roy Jones was never the same after moving up to heavyweight then back down to 175. But Canelo hasn't jumped as dramatically.

Looking forward to this one - I'm also backing GGG because a) I think he's the superior boxer and b) he's never pissed hot.

AJ is like Primo Carnera. He had a good run due to careful management but has now been found out big time. Expect Fury to give him a thrashing with a fair bit of showboating thrown in for good measure.

I love how people now think Fury is Muhammad Ali mixed with Mike Tyson while Joshua is Primo Carnera II :lol:

No chance there could be a massive upset then, we've seen it before in boxing

Two judges had that at 115 - 113 ??

****ing hell… :|

A nothing fight really that felt like a final payday for GGG. Biggest thing to come out of it is that Canelo can actually speak good English after all. Who knew?

Joshua is a paper champion. At least Fury is beaten the best and has good skills. If he can take the power of Wilder there is no way Joshua sparks him unless he lands a lucky punch.

Looking forward to Joyce vs Parker. They both looked in great shape at the weigh in.

The Battle of the Joe's should be a cracking fight. Genuinely have no idea who wins. Hope it's Joe :grin:

In Nottingham there was an incredible fight lined up between local boy Leigh Wood & Mexico's big punching Mauricio Lara but Woods pulled out with an injury so the main event is now Maxi Hughes & Kid Galahad. Hoping Hughes does it. Just under 3 years ago he lost to Liam Walsh to move to 19-5-2, but since then he's won six on the trot, and beating some very good opponents, to move up to 25-5-2.

Hannah Rankin v Teri Harper on the undercard should be a good bout too. Rankin is an interesting character. In addition to being a boxing champion she's also an accomplished bassoonist who's played at top venues.

Parker is quicker of hand and foot, but tends to slow down a bit in fights, he is teak tough though, but I fancy Joyce's engine and pressure will tip the scales in his favour, and I think Joyce will win it

Good fight, would like to see Parker do it

Decent fight that, Parker showed heart, but Joyce was too much for him.

Joyce dealing with Parker more impressively than any other opponent, including Whyte and AJ.
