    So they allowed 1000 fans in, allowed to sing, never seen socially distancing observed and at the end AJ leaves the ring to be greeted by Mayweather who never had a face covering.

    I was watching a stream with US commentary and they said Mayweather had been included in the Covid testing. Not sure about the general audience.

    May weather had been in aj's dressing room prior as well. So part of his entourage so to speak.

    Canelo is just too good, can't take away his skill even though he's still a drug cheat

  11. #1990
    Canelo clearly the best boxer on the planet. Best since floyd IMO. Not sure he has a weakness.

  12. #1991
    An easy night's work for Canelo but it was set up to be.

    Smith took the fight at short notice and took the payday. He's 31 so he'll get another shot at a world title.

    I'd still like to see the Canelo v Saunders fight but I'm not sure that will ever happen.

    Campbell completely unfazed by the hype.

    Garcia is good, he's not a hype job but he's nowhere near as good as they are making out

    Agreed. These commentators seem to think he’s the second coming.

    I'd be keeping him well clear of Tank or Lopez for now to be honest

    One commentator especially was so biased it was embarrassing. The lads good but he’s in a tough weight class.

    That body shot look utterly crippling.

    Mannix and Grisham(former WWE commentator) are both shocking, zero boxing experience between them and trying to make Sergio Mora a former world champion sound like he doesn't know what he's on about

    Commentary aside, I thought that’s as a great ‘coming of age’ performance from Garcia. He’s not just a pretty face. Also thought Luke put on a good show but his time at world level is over now. Shame, another excellent U.K. fighter not to win a world title.

    Dillian Whyte will have the chance to get his revenge against Alexander Povetkin as Matchroom Boxing confirmed their rematch for 6 March.
    The Russian, 41, produced a stunning knockout win in the fifth-round of their WBC interim title bout in August.

    Whyte, 32, was originally set to meet Povetkin for a second time in late November 2020 at Wembley Arena.
    However, the fight was postponed after the the veteran Russian tested positive for Covid-19.

    Josh Taylor unification fight with Ramirez pencilled in for May. Promoter Bob Arum says......

    “Hopefully things are better in May and we can get some Scottish people coming to Las Vegas, that would help boost the economy of our city.*I don’t know necessarily about the economy but certainly the beer sales will increase.”

    Normally I'd be well up for this but no chance I'm booking such a pricy trip so soon.

    Gutted that’s happening this year, but delighted for Josh. With a stag in June, two weddings and New York in December it’s very difficult to try and justify Vegas in May as well.

    I see Teo Lopez has been mentioned at some point. Can't see it, Josh far more likely to step up than Lopez any time soon I'd have thought.

    If Josh beats Ramirez I'd expect him to make the step up in the next fight or two then build up to fights with the superstars. Still a couple of huge fights for Teo at lightweight.

    Thoughts?

    Edit: I'm forgetting about the Catterall 'deal' but a defence against Zepeda probably a good thing given his profile from fight of the year as well.

    Yeah there’s big money to be made for Lopez at 135 if he can hang around at that division. He is big for the weight though so that might be the reason for looking to moving up and calling out Taylor.

    With a big performance and win against Ramirez in the States, it would set up a NYC bout at MSG / Barclays Centre v Teo quite nicely. Undisputed v Undisputed. It would possibly draw more $$$ than a Crawford fight also?
