    Parker is controlling this fight, I just wish hed take the next step and knock chisora out.
    He just seems too nice. Think hes done enough but I dont think hes quite world level for that reason.

    Why is Parker not finishing that with a minute to go? Chisora is rocking on the ropes and Parker walks away.

    Absolutely, he lacks that killer instinct. Hes a wide margin winner here, but yet again hes failed to deliver.

    United we stand here....

    Parker v Usyk would be an interesting fight. Id be backing Usyk, too slick and skilful.

    Another shocking decision, how that can be a split decision is beyond me. The right result in the end though.

    He wasnt a wide margin winner at all. A worthy winner sure, good fight Chisora is always good entertainment just that level below the top table. Parker is at the top table but a poorer member of it. He's decent but not top drawer.

    116-111 is just wrong when you consider the knockdown. 3 rounds for Chisora? 115-113 is a fairer representation of that fight and would have been an accurate UD. Chisora could make a legitimate claim for the bulk of the 1st 5 or 6 plus the knockdown. Parker controlled from there on but winning 9 rounds? Not having that. Equally I'm not having the one card for Chisora either, he didn't win the fight.

    Not sure. Parker won marginally for me.

    Chisora wants a rematch on the AJ Fury Undercard. Yes please.

    I had Parker winning 7 rounds to 5. No idea where 116-111 came from.

    Predictions for tonight/tomorrow morning?

    I'm going for something similar to the Alvarez v Khan fight. Saunders slickness and ability to box off the back foot will trouble Canelo at 1st and he may well win a few of the early rounds. At his most focused and best Saunders is a brilliant boxer. As the fight goes on Alvarez will start to cut off the ring, start to close the gap and take control.

    Canelo by late stoppage or convincing points. Saunders biggest problem is he has to land a KO, no way is he winning on points, and I'm not sure he has the power nor does Alvarez have a vulnerable chin.

    Good analysis of how I can see the fight going, no way is BJS knocking him out.
    Usually I would be rooting for the British boxer but he is someone who I cannot stand, despicable human being and hope he gets folded early doors

    Pretty much it, Saunders is a really clever fighter but so is Canelo who seems to keep getting better, can't see anything other than a Canelo win

    Went pretty much as expected, I had it about level, Canelo is very heavy handed, destroyed BJS eye with one punch basically and game over

  19. #2178
    Didn't really go as I expected but I though Saunders performed reasonably well. He was certainly growing into it a bit before that finish. Canelo is a monster though, he saw Saunders ducking punches and started hammering home those brutal uppercut, as soon as one landed it was always going to cause trouble.

    Saunders corner done the right thing, if they hadn't pulled him out the ref or doctor would have had to. His eye was horrific.
