During the pre fight press conference I noticed Bellew was wearing an Everton jacket by the way. :)

His boxing shorts are always blue, white and yellow with the Everton badge on the front, pity he couldnt make weight, not surprised tho the guys huge!

I'm gutted he never made the weight, that would have been one massive fight, there was talk there that since the press conference yesterday, the pay-per-view subscriptions went through the roof! I think if Cleverly retains the belt, there will be a fight between them both sooner rather than later.

I am not mad for boxing usually. I like it but not daft about it. However this fight is one I am excited about. To be honest I can't wait.

 

The Klitchko brothers were never going to fight each other so the whole scene was getting boring. I really want to see David Haye stir things up and hopefully take the belts.

When you are on the undercard to Eubank Jr it shows how far you have fallen down the pecking order.

To be fair it's ITV's first venture into PPV boxing so it will take time to draw in decent cards etc

 

I'm glad they are having a go of it anything that can potentially take away from the likes of Sky and Hearn is good in my book

 

Hammer will likely beat Price, for all the power he has in that right hand his chin and mentality are both weak

 

My mates actually on ITV4 on the 21st in a long awaited rematch against Jack Arnfield for the WBA international middleweight title, mate was absolutely robbed blind in Prize fighter

Eubank jnr is an above average boxer, sadly his demeanour is similar to his dads, which was all pantomime pillock but backed up with genuine class. Sadly for jnr theres no Nigel Benn about for each to chase after the other and puton legendary british boxing nights.

 

jnr should be styled on Hearns (rangey, speed and wicked uppercuts)

 

as for Price, how many last chance saloons are there?

Got no time for Eubank Jnr. He was doing well until his Dad decided to jump in and take over the show. Now he comes across as a twat.

 

Price has fell off as far as I'm concerned. I'm don't think he can do it, unfortunately. Nice honest bloke.

You have to respect how good of a boxer Eubank Jr is though. Unbelievable power and as dedicated as they come. Losing to BJ Saunders was the best thing that could have happened to his career.

 

Both him and his dad need to shut their mouths though and just get on with the boxing.

The pictures of Price in a suit are some of the funniest things I've ever seen :lol:.

Am I alone in wanting Klitschko to beat Joshua? :leggit:

 

Don't take that as a "I don't like Joshua" because he is a very very good fighter, its just....he's the good guy you want the bad guy to beat. Cant wait for Fury to return and set the fight up for him vs Joshua.

Yep. Definitely. I like his style. He's got the real athletic look. Just a shame his Dad got involved as soon as he started tasting some success.

I want klitschko to give him a tough fight. But not win! I really want to see AJ tested.

 

The best I seen Klitschko fight was against Haye. He needs that sort of performance.

 

But I just can't see AJ losing this. Different era.

Joshua will beat Klitschko it won't be a walk in the park (points) but he's knocking on now and way past his best

 

In his prime I'd back Klitschko all day, I think due to his long reign and lack of decent fighter's for a long period people forget how good he is/was

 

Haye will annihilate Bellew as much as I want him to win Haye is to fast accurate and powerful, Adonis Stevenson turned him into Trebors Mr Soft and Haye hits a damn sight harder

 

Looking forward to the Crolla rematch and pending a date the Golovkin Jacob's fight

Haye or Bellew then ladies and gents?

 

Haye for me, as soon as he lands his first proper punch Bellew will be on his arse looking at the stars.

Haye. No doubt about it. Too fast. Too powerful. Even with ring rust he beats Bellew. Bellew has been knocked to the canvas several times by lesser opponents.

 

Bellew has never been able to match his mouth in the ring. He looks slow and predictable. Tried so hard to like him...but no, I don't rate him.

He can bang though but a punchers chance is all he has.

 

I like Bellew because he has made a good living through pure hard work. He is a bang average boxer with a good head on him and a loud mouth and he has not only made a career but put himself in the history books.

Yeah. He's a good bloke who does it for the right reasons. Just wants to secure his families future. He knows he's done the Haye thing for a payday.

 

However, as a boxer...don't rate him. He misses so many of his big wide sloggers it's unreal!

Boxers struggle to stay away, and the more success they've tasted the bigger the draw back to the limelight. Its actually quite sad in a lot of cases.

Depends on the weight, so many years out and not much in terms of comeback fights (opponents) it's no Haye gimme, Bellew I believe is naturally heavier, Haye only two years older, if it's a brawl it's evens, if Haye sticks & moves then he should be too slippery, but Bellew turns up near a stone heavier and wraps Haye up in a corner it could be a bit nasty.

I think Bellew will win,he is slow before he even steps up to heavyweight though, that's what will go against him. Haye's comeback fights have been terrible, the first was against a youtube trained boxer.

I agree in that if this does become a test of character then Bellew will be the one that wins. Bellew said it himself, he will get up off the canvas to win but I'm not sure Haye would.

 

I still think it just takes one clean shot from Haye to put Bellew flat on his arse.

No denying Haye had the speed and power to put people away, but that was years ago, I'm not convinced he still has it in him.

 

Best thing is if Bellew loses, it doesn't effect him in the slightest, he drops back down to his level and carries on and keeps his belt, if Haye loses then for me its the end of his career.

Bellew will not win this fight. Unless there is a miracle (injury to Haye)

Going toe-to-toe?

Going toe to toe Bellew gets knocked the fuck out everytime! People are forgetting the power Haye possesses that never leaves you especially with him being heavier! He not THAT old!

Got home from work just in time to catch the Degale Jack fight, one of the best in recent times toe to toe stuff well worth a watch if you haven't seen it

Was a good fight.

 

DeGale ruined himself for me. He went toe to toe where as he works best getting space and finding the angles. He was lucky to get the draw.

 

Punch stats show Jack landed about 300 more punches.

 

I do think that was the best of Jack, but not the best of DeGale.

Fully agree with that mate, Smith will dominate that division in the very near future imo

Anyone see Haye on soccer Am? made an absolute cunt of himself, took "smack" talking too far:

Also The Gloves Are Off was tasty last night, Bellew had Haye off everywhere, its really built up to feel like a massive fight, cant wait for it, hope Bellew knocks him clean out now.

I'm not a boxing fan but I don't see Bellew standing any chance. He'll be gone inside 4.

I'm not sure, I used to think that but Haye has come across like he isn't taking this serious, hes only doing 2 hours training, without a trainer, hasn't fought anyone who's half decent for years. Bellew I feel wants this fight more, could end up being a Frotch - Groves (first fight) where Frotch massively underestimated Groves.

 

If Bellew can get to the later rounds then he can do it, Haye will be very dangerous in the first few due to his quickness.

Amir Khan lining up retirement signing off with a loss to Pacquiao.

 

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/boxing/39094500

Its a smart move from him, he's avoided Kell Brook there knowing full well if he gets beat to him its game over, whereas if he gets beat to Pacquiao he has the Brook fight to fall back on.

 

Kahn vs Pacquaio will be a fight of two of the most irrelevant fighters in the game today. hope its a rocky 3 finish and they ko each other.
