    Scottish boys Stephen Tiffney, Michael McGurk and Kieran Smith all confirmed on the bill with no opponents for them mentioned as yet.

    Zack Murphy v Darryl Williams for the British Super May ddlewight strap confirmed.
    I saw the presser with the Scottish lads. The British title fight is a decent addition, hadnít seen that. Thanks.

    No probs!

    Victor Postol (reserve for Taylor v Martin) confirmed as fighting Siar Ozgul.

    Paul Butler (reserve for Burnett v Donaire) confirmed as fighting Yoan Boyeaux, though lots of rumours circulating about Donaire withdrawing due to issues making the weight.

    Sure I read that the fight is being shown on YouTube as no channel has picked up the rights yet.

    Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

    ALI TROPHY | BANTAMWEIGHT | QUARTER FINAL
    RYAN BURNETT VS NONITO DONAIRE
    WBA 'UNIFIED' CHAMPIONSHIP

    ALI TROPHY | SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT | QUARTER FINAL

    Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

    Just watched the pre-fight press conference and Sauerland mentioned that 4500 tickets had been sold and he expected a crowd of 6000. Surprised sales are that low to be honest.

    Canít think of many boxing events in Scotland that have pulled in more than 6000 punters. Ricky Burns possibly, but he was already a double world champion by the time he was fighting at the Hydro.

    I saw something earlier that said they were down to the last 500 tickets.

    Fair comment, recent times anyway. The halcyon days of Benn, Eubank and Naz fighting to full houses at the SECC were different. I think the lack of TV coverage for this one has definitely hindered ticket sales. If it had been on Sky with weeks of build up on SSN it wouldíve been a near full house.

    Thatís it mate. Feel sorry for Josh, if he was signed to Matchroom he would be a household name by now.

    Itís a shame Sky only push fighters who are signed with Hearn. Taylor is one of the best fighters to come out the UK in decades.

    Got to feel for Ryan Burnett there. Was shaping up to be a very good fight and he was looking very sharp.

    Taking my son along to his first fight night and mine in about 10 years. Looking forward to it.

    Also looking forward to Bellew v Usyk. Should be a Usyk win but you just canít rule out Bellew.

    Still torn about what to do this weekend regarding GGG V Canelo. Talk is theyíll be at the ring for 4am. Bit early to set the alarm for but Iíll see.

    Did you and your boy make it to the Taylor fight Callum? twas a more muted atmosphere than I expected, unsure if it was the venue itself or the early stoppage of the Burnett fight that contributed to that. Possibly both.

    Either way, Josh is the boy. Easily in the top 5 British pound for pound rankings right now - he will take some stopping.

    Hey! Yes we made it. Got in for 7pm straight from ER - saw 4 fights. Thought the atmosphere was decent without being crackling - my son loved it tho. JT was superb. Punch perfect I thought. Sore one for Burnett tho.

    I thought it was a bit muted also. First fight at the Hydro, great set up for viewing, we had front row of the balcony. Similar sized crowds at the SECC produced a far better atmosphere though. I think the production also hampered the atmosphere. Too WWF for my liking and why did they leave the up lights on for the two feature bouts? My lad loved it though and canít wait to go again.

    On the fights, was gutted the Burnett fight ended so soon and under those circumstances. It was shaping up to be a cracking bout. JT was outstanding, a master class.

    We were in the 3rd row of the balcony (block 207) and seats were spot on.

    Wasn't the usual atmosphere, think it was the production and layout, real shame as when done right boxing atmosphere can be sensational, Arthur V Gomez at Meadowbank is still one of the wildest atmospheres I've ever been in at any sport

    We were on the front row of the balcony too. Great seats! I thought the production looked awesome when watching the last series on the TV, its a different vibe when attending in person though. Not a fan of the Champions League style opera music, the podiums are quite cool though.

    £5 for a pint of Fosters though :( hate that stuff!

    Who is it that promotes Taylor? Iím surprised that fight wasnít on Sky.

    Tony Bellew tonight. Iíve got a soft spot for him, Intipped Jim to beat Haye when he was the underdog but I think this is a fight too much.

    From what I hear his opponent is something else. Say what you like about Tony but his heart is almost as big as his mouth.

    Almost..!

    Taylor is promoted by Cyclone who have a broadcast deal with Channel 5. The WBSS is a seperate competition though and they negotiate their own TV deal - I donít think they got a suitable offer from a UK broadcaster this series so put the fight free to view on YouTube.

    If Taylor was with Sky / Matchroom he would be a household name by now, although probably wouldnít have been matched as aggressively.

    Usyk will be too good for Bellew tonight, I give him a punchers chance but not much more. The Ukrainian is a serious operator & a legitimate threat to Joshua when he moves up to Heavyweight.

    Well we didnít learn anything there. Heís very similar to Josh Taylor in that heís more than ready for a step up in class quicker than would be normal for a fighter with his experience.

    United we stand here....
