    I've been watching the boxing the last few weeks and there have been some pretty decent fights

    I don't think Babic is that great but you better believe I will tune in to watch him anytime he's on as he just goes for it and will either spark someone or be knocked out himself early doors

    Kongo V Clay was a decent fight

    If Taylor just sticks to boxing then I have a feeling she could box Persoons head off all day but think she may get dragged into another war

    Whyte is getting Povetkin at the right time, thought he was lucky to get a draw against Hunter but for the first few rounds I think he will still be pretty dangerous and isn't to be overlooked

    I take my hat off to Whyte for taking the fight but he's off his heid for doing it

    Unreal 98-93 to Taylor. I thought Persoon edged it. I get that they look at style and punches landed, but Persoons workrate was insane and just kept coming forward.

    100% agree I had it Persoon by 1 but 1 or even 2 either way would have been fine as was close. 98-93 though no chance.

    Unbelievable. Was strolling it until that punch. The beauty of heavyweight boxing.

    I’ve just watched the fight back. Whyte is going to be gutted at that ko, he was in complete control and just got really sloppy. The only thing he had to do to win was avoid being knocked out, just cover up and let your opponent miss, chances to knock Povetkin out would’ve come his way with patience. He needs to be much more savvy in the ring.

    United we stand here....

    The irony was that pre-fight he was talking about the need to not make silly mistakes because at that level you get punished.

    Not sure if it was complacency from being in complete control up until that punch, or if he just made a mistake, but he proved his point.

    I think it was complacency from Whyte.

    Lee McGregor fighting on Wednesday’s MTK bill. Not seen much about it. Is it a live opponent?

    The guy is 11-1 but has only ever really been matched against guys with losing records. Southern Area Super Bantamweight champ so should be live enough to make Lee look good. Fancy Lee within 6 by KO

    Ramirez Postol is on Saturday so if JT comes through this then the unified fight can be made for Jan/Feb hopefully

    Good performance by McGregor, he's huge at that weight, still want the Kash Farooq rematch though

    Ramirez wins a close fight, Postol is still a tricky customer, if Ramirez tries to fight JT like that then there will only be one winner, still think the Prograis fight was harder than Ramirez will be

    Ramirez claiming he wants to fight in the UK, we shall see

    Be interested to see how JT comes through a similar environment against Khongsong in a few weeks. Fully back him to do the business comfortably

    Just seen Ramirez has been ordered to defend one of his belts against Caterall who’s been mandatory for ages.

    Really hope that doesn’t put the brakes on this fight

    Josh fight on Saturday. He's looking in tip top shape. Think he'll be going all out for an impressive win.

    Looking forward to it, JT has been ripped for a few weeks now, hopefully no slip ups and a real statement of intent on Saturday night

    Usyk V Chisora has been made for Halloween as well

    What's the chances the cards will be adjusted to try get it all finished before 10pm?

    Ringwalk timing I saw was around 9pm but wondered if they'll make more effort to make sure it fits in for the pubs.

    I can't imagine the fights important enough for that tbh. But ringwalks at 9 mean the fight should finish 10ish anyway no?
