    Watched the highlight, What did they inject Kovalev with at the end of the 8th round? Talk about a second wind!

    Respect to Yarde. Even his gas tank held on longer than I expected him to. Showed a real warrior's spirit in there, gave it his all and willing to fall on his shield.

    Can't stand his couch Tunde though.

    Kinda glad Yarde got battered, as that whole LIONS IN THE CAMP shit pisses me off enormously.

    Same here.

    Never been to the o2, I am a bit wary of being able to see anything due to distance from the ring (apart from on screen)

    Atmosphere should be good though.

    The few fights I've seen live I have watched 90% on the big screen.

    Unless your ringside I find it hard to follow properly without the big screen.

    Never been to the O2 though.

    Weird outcome in flyweight fight.

    Charlie Edwards gets dominated and knocked down from a barrage of punches from the Mexican fighter who throws a really late body shot when he's kneeling on the mat.

    Called a no contest for the late punch. Very lucky.

    It was lobbying from Hearn. The British Boxing Board of Control, who sanctioned the fight, don't use instant replays and leave it to the ref. The ref stepped in after the low blow.

    Where have you seen the president of an organisation make an on the spot judgement based on video evidence shown by the home fighter's broadcaster in the arena, on the night? Ridiculous. I've seen several Matchroom fighters throw low blows and get away with it. Joshua Buatsi tonight knocked his opponent out with a punch to the back of the head.

    In any case, Edwards was already making his excuses about being drained at the weight. He doesn't want that rematch.

    No time for Hughie Fury.

    Hoping Povetkin knocks him the fuck.out.

    Makes me sick looking at him, I wouldn't want to step in the ring with him for fear of his full-body steroid acne bursting all over me

    Povetkin is the one who's been caught using roids.

    Fury will win this by staying on the back foot and jabbing and clinching. It'll be ugly but he'll get the job done. Povetkin will tire rounds 5 onwards.

    Yes povetkin has been caught and banned for using PEDs, but thatís got nothing to do with the fact furyís acne is 100% a side effect of steroid use

    Hah, well, until Fury pisses hot, he's innocent.

    Not that I disagree with you, mind.

    Iíd be surprised if many boxers are clean, Povetkin was caught right during the whole crackdown on Russian athletes so Iím sure that story was as much political as anything else

    Good fight. Not sure I agree with the scorecards. I think I gave Cambpell at least 4-5 rounds. The knockdown didn't help.

    Loma is so good. Hard to appreciate watching him box live in the arena as heís so quick and subtle. But glad I can say Iíve seen an all time great in the flesh. Everyone around me was in awe.

    @senso-ji Actually the Buastyi one was a full on nut shot.

    I guess the argument is the others were accidental, whereas that one was so late it seemed pretty damn intentional.

    No way at all Campbell had 5 rounds. It was pretty one sided bar 1 and maybe 9. In fact watching it again after getting him, it really was a one sided affair, barring a few moments by Campbell (the body shot in particular), in which in every case where Campbell did well, Loma came back to do something and get the points back. Meaning by and large Loma dominated even the round Campbell did well in.

    Luke should not feel ashamed though, gave a good account of himself. He is truly a world-champ fighter without a belt. I'm confident he wins one, once Loma vacates. He definitely beats either of Lopez or Commey for the IBF if that ever happened, would beat Pedraza as Loma did for the WBA.

    He'll be a champ soon

    Agreed. He's actually easier to watch on tv than the flesh. But just glad to say I've seen him live.
