I've never seen Fury. He must've fought a lot of shlubs to have no talent yet be 21-0!|
Although, the heavyweight division is terrible atm, so that isn't hard to believe.

I love his face at the very end.
Fury must be a real bellend if Haye is being made out as the good guy. Haye's a giant jackass!
He sounds like one of the Chuckle Brothers.
So what time is chisora getting knocked out en?
Chisora won his fight earlier, by knock out.
Don't I look a right cunt. Thought he was the main event.
Froch v Groves then. Ok.
I think Groves is a little out of his depth. He just hadn't had enough fights to challenge for a title, and has a suspect chin. Froch, if he's 100% prepared, should walk through him.
I reckon so too, Groves is the mandatory challenger though and he can't really say no. Shows how lacking the division is if anything.
Should I pay attention to this Burns fight? Or not waste this precious hour I have to myself!?
Christ, he's getting his arse handed to him here.
Haha, somehow they scored it a draw. Ludicrous. I bailed the last round, was soundly beaten. Inc a knockdown. If he won 3 rounds, I'm being generous.
Disgraceful scoring there. Can't believe the English referee scored that a draw. That's twice Burns has been outclassed and twice he's held on to his title. All the holding he did would have had him deducted points anywhere else in the world.

Cheers for the heads up Dougs. Read your post and caught the last round and the wrap up. No one cheering in the crowd spoke volumes, every judge gave it to Beltrand and Watts said 'I'm ashamed to be part of this game some times' (paraphrase). You could see even in Burns' camp they were evasive.
Beltrand saying it's business and he's been robbed a lot. So hard to see a guy that has given everything to have his livelihood and money getting taken away in front of his eyes - I have no idea what the cost is, but fighting as champion must be so much more lucrative.
Nothing against Burns, he's a fucking hero for fighting ten rounds with an injury, but sad to see. Beltrand deserved the win, but at the very least hopefully Burns can look back and be honest enough to give the guy a rematch.
No chance of a rematch happening, Matchroom will be pushing for a unification fight now. As for the fight, it was a really poor decision (I had Beltran by 3) the injury really had a influence on how Burns fought. The fact he's spent the night in hospital and has an op on the break tells you how bad it is.
As much as I like Burns I can't help thinking he's lacking enough power to keep the top lightweights at bay, Beltran last night was just walking him down.
I can see him having a tune up fight with Corolla after the injury heals then a unification fight next summer.
Callum Smith impressed again last night, 5 1st round stoppages on the bounce now! Time to step him up.

I miss the days of Chris Eubank, for me heavy weight boxing is slow and dull, give me light/middle weight any day.
Blimey, he said his jaw hurt, didn't realise he'd dislocated it! Fair play for fighting on, but Beltrand mowed through him round after round. It's a no wonder people are disillusioned with the sport.
It's broke as well, Eddie Hearn posted a picture on twitter earlier.
Some of the home boxer decisions are truly shocking!
Looking forward to next week now, absolutely brilliant card.

Can't wait for Saturday! Even though boxing has become a bit of a joke in recent years with regard to dodgy decisions, I still look forward to the big fights.

So... any predictions for Mayweather vs Canelo? I'm saying Floyd by decision, but would relish seeing him get KO'd.

I think undiscovered tribes in the Amazonian rainforest have already prepared a variety of relishes - and flatbreads for dipping purposes - in the hope of an Alvarez victory.
But whatever one thinks about Mayweather - and he gives the naysayers plenty of ammunition - he's the most complete boxer of his generation.
Maybe of generations...
I think he'll win. Like you, his natural caution, and desire to box on the back foot rather than be the all out aggressor, will probably result in a convincing points win.
But Saul Alvarez can punch hard, has age on his side, and has quick hands... if Floyd's skimped on his training, those relishes and flatbreads could be required.
@craigy that's all I could ever wish for! Mayweather and his negative style of boxing has ruined boxing for too long
Having said that I loved watching him dismantle Ricky hatton like he was a child
