    Ward won a close fight in which most people scored to Kovalev.you watch boxing as much as anyone, you know there's bad decisions. The way the judges scored that fight absolutely wreaks of a fix.

    But Kovalev isn't skilful. LOL.

    I'm putting you on ignore ya fucking clueless maggot.

    Madness, its a better fight for sure, for the purists, certainly isn't a bigger fight.

    In boxing terms it's a bigger fight, to the wider audience it wasn't.

    People in boxing knew what Mayweather/Pacquiao was, two guys way past there best.

    Ward and Kovalev fought in their prime for P4P supremacy.

    Correct, but it wasn't a bigger fight, it wasn't even on box office in the UK.

    Like I said before, its the better, more important fight by a country mile, to say its a bigger fight is just plain incorrect mate.

    Yeah more important is probably a better description of it.

    Big fight aren't defined by what's PPV over here though, Joshuas shit fests are on PPV regularly.

    Were not comparing it to an AJ fight though, you compared it to MayPac which was a bigger fight hence millions across the world paid to watch it.

    But yea, lets agree that it was more important and probably the most intriguing match up of the last decade?

    Just glad it lived up to expectations!

    Hardly the greatest of fights, maybe a bit better than expected but the last 8 rounds were pretty turgid.

    "It's either going to be a stinker or a Kovalev blow out."

    So you thought it was a stinker?

    Was just going to post that but you beat me to it. This ridiculous 'sport' should be banned.
    We no longer allow cock-fighting or dog-fighting because it is cruel, yet we allow people to beat each others brains out. Makes no sense.

    I do find it odd that pretty much every other sport that involves impact to the head, even heading the ball in football, is being examined for ways to make it safer yet its rare to hear anything said against boxing.

    I also have a problem with it yet don't feel I should prescribe what others can or cannot do
    Just like say Equestrian events which can also end tragically.
    So these days I just don't watch.

    He must be a giant c**t then.
    The boy, out of sympathy alone, probably would have made more from media than he did from his Boxing career, but now nobody will give a shit and quite possibly he'll be a veg.
