    If youíre purely talking boxing skills, I agree, but you then need to factor in aggression, heart, determination. I had Conlan 1 up going into the last round.

    I didnít score rounds but passively had Conlan at least 3 up before the 11rd KD. Just needed to box and move the last round and the title was his. Silly of him to stand on the ropes last round, but, easy to say that from here.

    Heart and determination was superb from both men all night and not sure you could say Wood showed more of either. He took advantage of a mistake in the final round and got the finish.

    Thankfully Conlan seems to be fine after his KO. I thought he was excellent last night, but he was very naive in the later rounds. Fight of the year so far though.

    United we stand here....

    For anyone with some time to kill the Boxing Scotland Youth and Elite Championships are taking place at Ravenscraig today. Live stream at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=by0PKl9fpq8 with Alex Arthur Jr fighting at the moment. Jamie Buchanan to also fight at some point.

    Alex Arthur Jr beat in the semi one of the gang that got charged for murdering shaun Woodburn, which is good. Looks class for his age

    Warrington looks like he throws more headbutts than punches

    I like Warrington but the headbuts are unreal and he's just beaten a cherry picked 36 year old, Hearns no daft, will likely make the Wood fight next instead of giving Lara another go

    As stairway says, Kiko was the champion. Donít see the problem there.
    And Warrington v Wood is a spectacle.

    I like Kiko Martinez, been some fighter over the years, but hes 36 and beat a severely weight drained Galahad(who I don't like so was happy) so yes he was cherry picked as the weakest of the champions and the easiest fight to make, as I said Hearn isn't daft

    funny how in the names mentioned afterwards that Lara's name wasn't even mentioned

    Going for 1 of the 4 titles isn't cherry picking its common sense and opens him up to the other belts. So is fighting wood next if it brings in more ppv buys, it's a big British fight. Lara has no belts so why fight him over one of the other 3 champs, or wood that brings more money

    Both Hearn and Warrington went on record after the 2nd fight and said Lara would get a rematch, that's why I find I funny his name wasn't even brought up

    Letís be honest, when Lara has nothing to offer, it will take him longer to get a fight.
    If you could fight Lara for the sake of it, or wood to add another title, who are you gonna choose?

    Yep no one wants to fight a good fighter with no belt unless there is big money, that's why the person needs to gain mandatory. Ufc is better at getting the best fighting and boxing should change, but in the meantime..

    American authorities have put a $5m reward up for the arrest of Daniel Kinahan for drug & money laundering offences. Now we know why the James English interview was pulled!

    Lots of his usual cheerleaders are pretty silent so far today, as we all alluded to previously on this thread, it was hardly a well kept secret where his money and power came from, the DEA won't **** about either now they have announced they are in the mix

    Anyone been watching the Benn v van Heerden undercard?

    I almost spat my beer out when Carl Froch said Campbell Hatton had been ďeroticĒ. I hope he meant erratic

    A few brilliant memes on Twitter off the back of it.

    Hopefully Hearn puts Benn in with a top 10 welterweight soon, I like him and he's exciting but there is no way to gauge how good he is with the opponent's he keeps getting handed

    MTK Global to cease operations.

    As a business we have faced unprecedented levels of unfair scrutiny and criticism since the sanctioning by the US Government of Daniel Joseph Kinahan.

    It is a matter of public record that Mr Kinahan's involvement in MTK ceased in 2017, and despite repeated reassurances in this regard, unfounded allegations about his ongoing association with us and our fighters persist.

    Since leading promoters have now informed us that they will be severing all ties with MTK and will no longer work with our fighters, we have taken the difficult decision to cease operations at the end of this month.

    MTK prospered because we always put the long term interests of our fighters at the heart of what we do. Our priority in the weeks ahead will be to ensure that our world class boxers are supported to find new partnerships as swiftly as possible.

    MTK gyms are operated independently so will remain open for the foreseeable future. Further announcements will be made in due course.

    Thank you to all the fans who have supported us over the last decade.

    Ooft, can't wait for the books, documentaries, podcasts etc to all come out once this is said and done, everyone is involved from amatuer boxing all the way through to the biggest promoters and broadcasters in the world

    They all knew and turned a blind eye until now

    Just catching up with the Fury v whyte build up online.

    Iíve got a funny feeling Whyte is going to put him down early on. Not convinced he will necessarily stop him though.
