I've just read that Anthony Ogogo is now registered as blind after fracturing an eye socket, but he wants to continue his boxing career regardless.

Idiotic idea IMO

Bit surprised that Joshua is seen as the marginal favourite to beat Klitschko on Saturday, not that I'm any kind of expert on boxing. Is that how people see it generally? Hope he does it anyway, just that Klitschko is such a beast I have my doubts despite the fact he's knocking on a bit.

AJ 6th or points, although I'm in the minority who would rather see Klitschko win.

Me also Aaron

 

Taking nothing away from Fury he nullified Klitschko when he took his belts but that was a piss poor effort from VK and I think he'll have had a big wake up call from it and looks to really have that challenger mentality

 

I really like Joshua it's hard not to and he has every chance of dominating a fairly poor division but I'm never a fan of over the top hype on such a scale it makes me route for the other guy if you get my drift

 

If it goes past 7/8 rounds I think Joshua will struggle he's carrying more mass than ever atm and looked like he was blowing a fair bit after the public workout and Klitschko moves well and is quick for such a big man, he needs to lay of the HGH his dissented stomach looks wrong on a fighter

 

It's either a stoppage beforehand (6th/7th) for Joshua or Klitschko on points for me but I wouldn't be surprised to see Joshua on the deck those straight rights of VK's are damaging and if you watch Joshua in his amateur days he looks to have a dodgy chin tbh, if he wins I want to see him in with King Kong (Ortiz) that will be a massive test of his suspect chin

Can't call this at all.

 

All depends on how AJ deals with klitscko and his jab.

 

Klitscko will try and turn it into the most boring fight you will ever see. I hate watching him....his blinking and flinching when the other fighter throws a punch. Too robotic.

One two clinch one two clinch is what will likely happen then he'll throw the odd straight right after to try and catch Joshua out

Klitschko was a champion so long because the division was so shite.

 

He will have a record comparable to Larry Holmes which takes the piss. Don't get me wrong - Holmes fought many a mug in his time but he would have twatted klitschko all over the place.

No doubt that any great from that era would walk the division today mate

 

Same with the middleweights the likes of Calzaghe Eubank Jones-Jr McClellan Benn James Tony etc would beat the likes of Golovkin imo

 

Still makes for a decent fight tonight with Klitschko being a similar size with a very solid chin and a good hard right hand I'm intrigued to see how well Joshua's chin handles it IF Klitschko lands many

Great fight... I won't pretend to be a big boxing fan or know the 1st thing about the sport but that was brilliant. Delighted Joshua won and the fact it was after 3/4 rounds where he looked beaten - it puts an end to he hasn't got the chin/ never been tested. I can't stand most boxers - it's WWF (old currency) pre and post fights usually but massive respect to fighters like Klitschko and Joshua - no provado and proper warriors.

Cracking fight Klitschko went for it more than expected and Joshua got through very well

 

That uppercut was vicious I'd be putting in a whiplash claim after that one

 

Hopefully the WBA don't pull a dirty trick on Ortiz and line him up for Joshua next that'll be a sterner test than Klitschko

 

The Quigg fight was decent toe to toe stuff as well

Big fight my arse. Absolute farce.

 

McGregor will barely get a sniff of mayweather and will do something to get disqualified like a low blow.

 

Absolute joke of a fight. In a streetfight McGregor wins.... queensbury rules it's mayweather all night long.

I agree but I'll still be watching it. Disqualification has been tipped a lot, might be worth a few quid.

I actually can't wait for this. It should be crazily one sided but Mcgregors a nutter and Floyd has struggled against the more unconventional fighters.

 

I so hope McGregor does it, would be unreal. It would be a movie.

How isn't it a big fight? Farce, probably but the money involved and the two fighters involved make it a big fight.

 

Good to see the PPV price isn't the rumoured £60 - £100. I for one cannot wait. Mayweather will very much likely win on points but i'll be backing a McGregor KO.

I'm still disgusted by this McGregor mayweather fight...

 

Absolute farce. The money involved is what makes It worse.

 

It's an exhibition... nothing more.

 

only thing i'm thinking Haf is with so many people thinking Floyd takes this, the "rigged" part of boxing might rear its head and we get a mcgregor win for the bookies.

Why you so assed? That post just comes across as bitter as fuck.

 

The two fighters have put on a show to sell the ppv, sponsorships from around the world want to be apart of it, that's why its so high the money involved.

 

The PPV price isn't anymore than what Joshua vs Klitscho was over here so its not as if we are being ripped off, cant say the same for the Americans. Not sure what they would normally pay for a PPV.

 

Its a fight, pretty simple. I for one will be watching it.

Either they have been hacked or Amir Kahn and his missus are in a massive twitter spat, he's accused her of cheating on him with Anthony Joshua! Love a good celebrity melt down.

He'll take it on the chin I guess...

 

Saying that to probably want to cave someone's head in initially to finding out it's actually Joshua would be a bastard, it'll be like an empty headlock

Joshua's nose broken in the second round it seems; spot of bother against the no-hoper?

He needed a shot gun to stop this fella.... absolute tank.

Bad headbutt that did him. The other fella took a bad cut.  Joshua was bossing it... never in danger

Takam did well but for me it just highlighted Joshua isn't as progressive as people think 

Takam isn't a world level fighter far from it he's come up short against Parker Povetkin and fought no marks or the over hill Botha's of the world 

Joshua should be pasting lads of his ability, I like Joshua but I'm far from jumping on the bandwagon he's lucky the division is absolutely shite

AJ looked gassed because he put too much weight on. It’s hard when you change opponents with six weeks to go. Not going to judge him that harshly 

having a broken nose wont help at all either as it effects the breathing. The fight was changed 12 days before the fight, not 6 weeks! so even more fair play. However AJ did come out and say he hasn't trained to fight one man, he's trained to be the best he can be, if that was his best then Fury will make easy work of him.

His nose wasn't broken just busted the doctors have confirmed it after the fight and he said it gave him no problems breathing 

Finn he didn't put that mass on due to a change in opponent Takam is smaller than Pulev who's much smaller than Joshua if anything he would have been looking to lose weight to counter the speed his original opponent would have over him the same would apply to Takam 

He's been on the juice for years it's been commonly spoken about it circles close to him, it will have a detrimental effect on his stamina when he faces someone half decent with a greater output similar to the Klitschko fight 

Luckily for him there's not many decent HW's around atm that will cause him problems

A busted nose were I'm from is just a bump that makes it bleed mate if it's something that's got lost in translation

Hearn stated he lost weight to fight pulev because he wanted to move and box differently. He has gone on record saying he put that weight back on as he knew he would be just slugging it in the middle of the ring against takam and he wanted the extra power

I've not heard Hearn say anything other than this regarding his weight 

"He doesn't monitor his weight, but he looks a lot leaner than the Klitschko fight and he feels a lot leaner, but he's come in heavier.

"I think his set even looks different, I think he looks more athletic and leaner in this fight. Like he said in the interview, he's not out there to make weight, he's just preparing the best way and whatever it comes on the scales it comes.

"He's growing now into a mature man. Maybe this is his natural weight? I don't think you're going to see him come in much lighter than this."

The lad wouldn't have been able to lose the weight as he carries nigh on no fat then within the opponent change whack over a stone of muscle on its physically impossible 

Not that it's worth debating about like but he certainly wouldn't have been cutting for Pulev and I don't think he could tbh he's a lad with freak genetics boosted by very well planned gear cycles

I just think Takam is a tricky customer. Durable and throws enough to keep his opponent off him. 

I thought AJ did a good enough job if breaking him down whilst not getting caught himself. The Klitchkos made a career out of it.

Anyone watching Bellew and Haye tonight, I think Bellew will win Haye doesn't seem to have the fire in his belly anymore, he seems to be more happy being a TV celebrity than a fighter.

Haye still the bookies favourite, hope Tony does it though. Not sure if I'll watch or not, was up quite early so bed might call:(.

I will be, should be a good fight and a good card generally. 

I really hope Bellew can do it but if Have is anywhere near his best then he doesn' have a chance (barring injury like last time). I saw some of Haye's sparring and I thought he looked very flat so maybe there is a little bit of hope.

The Ryder vs Cox fight should be a belter both quick accurate game fighters, really rate Ryder if he'd have had a better platform and coaches early on he'd have been a world champion by now may be to late now though......

The fight really hinges on Haye if his body can hold out he wins imo but I just can't see anything not giving way 

He's very light for this so his output will be upped and I'd put money on his shoulder going, stoppage again due to injury in or around the 8th rnd

Annihilated him, Haye looked terrible his body is absolutely fucked to much juice and to many weights has done his body no favours

Great stuff from Bellew though be interesting to see who his next fight will be against
