    Khan forced it to happen. Had Mayweather scrapped this bout, Pacman would have patched up with Khan.

    sceptical it will take place and it won't create the same level of excitement as it would have if it had taken place a few yrs ago
    Manny is gunning for his last big pay cheque because he knows FMJ will bring in the money
    maybe not....

    He truly is an exciting potential. Just don't Rush him, let him take his time and get some rounds under his belt. I like his technique, and to think he started boxing late as well. Natural talent and an obvious hardworker.

    Really like the guy.

    Me and my bro were arguing. Im of the thought that in a couple of years he would give the klitchkos a run for their money but unfortunately we'll never see a prime Joshua v the klits.

    Yup, Joshua won't have reached his prime in 2 years and Wlad will also be out of prime. Bit of a shame, but could be a great time for Joshua to fight him. Massive for British boxing.

    I find Tyson Fury hard to read. He has some fights where he looks meh and then suddenly he puts on a boxing clinic.

    Alvarez v Kirkland last night. Kirkland came in all guns blazing as expected but Canelo destroyed him in round 3. The knockout punch was an absolute belter! Would love to see him fight Cotto next

    Joshua meanwhile continued his winning streak. 12-0 now, another easy night for him

    Golovkin fights in a short while. Never a dull fight when he's on. Also going to watch the fly weight Gonzalez tonight for the first time live, another knockout specialist

    De Gale becomes world champion after beating Dirrell on points. Started off really well and had Dirrell down twice early on. He let the fight get away from him in the 2nd half of the fight but did just enough to convince the judges.

    Anyone think Joshua is a bit of a PED suspect?

    I always put it down to genetics until I saw his gut during the weighin.

    Cotto vs Geale tonight. Should be an easy win, but it will be interesting to see who he fights next. Canelo and GGG waiting.

    That was a beautiful left hook. The atmosphere for this fight was awesome in comparison to the khan fight. The Puerto Ricans came out in force. They booed golovkin whenever he'd be on the screen or his name was mentioned . Cotto was very hesitant when asked about him. It sounds like he wants a showdown with canelo

    Him v Canelo would be awesome. GGG to face the winner. Heck it doesn't matter who faces who out of the 3 it would be an awesome fight

    Watching Porter v Broner at the moment. Ugly start and Porter seems to be on top at the moment. Broner well out of his comfort zone.

    Long awaited return for Ward after this

    Porter gets the win. Broner was very disappointing today. Just doesn't seem to be the same fighter since the Maidana loss. Took him till the 12th round to get going and by that time the fight was gone. Talks too much trash and struggling to back it up

    He just isn't active enough. That left he knocked porter down with was beautiful, just wish he'd show us more. Very good and decisive win for porter

    He has a "tune up fight" once a year or 2 years and says he back. Hopefully the guy actually fights someone who gives him a bit of a challenge
