    Exactly, this is the same bloke that went 9 with Wilder, why was he so scared of AJ but lasted 9 with an unbeaten world champ who has won 36 of his 37 by KO?

    joshua is better than wilder? he certainly looks real deal everytime i have seen him

    white spinning air punches were funny but anyone who paid sky box office for this is a mug

    Mate, the undercard was very entertaining, I sat there from 6 till midnight and watched some great fights, popped out for food when Katie Taylor came on, not for me.

    Having said that my dodgy box saved me the PPV fee so I cant complain

    Joshua is much better than Wilder, the Yanks have hyped him up to be the next Tyson. he's dreadful
    Molina was still contending when he fought Wilder, him, like Charles before him, was paid a handsome fee to come over and get beat up.
    I wouldn't be surprised if Joshua earns less than his opponents, seriously wouldn't be surprised, Joshua has Boxing politics written all over him. Molina threw 3 punch's at him, embarrassing, I think Harrison threw more at Haye and that was the biggest pantomime since seldon dived a ghost punch from Tyson all those years ago.

    I'd take getting knocked out for £100k.

    Throw some haymakers like Chisora was, get knocked out with a counter punch.

    Laugh to the bank!

    Joshua has loads of sponsorship too I guess, will be a millionaire by now.

    There's too much 'dark arts ' involved in Hearn Fights.
    You don't know whether klitschko is getting 80% of everything to bow out and take a dive, Molina just did it, Charles did it and he was fucking world champion, I wouldn't trust it to bet on it.
    If they think Joshua is all that then get him in with Wilder fury or even Haye.

    Dude you must be insane. Boxing has a very very dark history.
    You really think Molina came to fight?

    In this weeks segment of "Pipez gets it wrong"

    "And i'll add, all this silly talk of fighting klitschko, you must be fucking stupid if you think Hearn will put his cash cow in with him next year, Fuck that, bullshit." Sunday at 12:25 AM
    30 seconds later AJ v Klitskho is announced

    "Amazed they've made that. Klitschko wins" Sunday at 12:31 AM
    3 days later Pipez backs down, bottles a charity bet and says AJ will win cause of "dark arts".

    I thought hadji10 was a clueless mumbling idiot, you my friend take the biscuit.

    Time will tell regarding the Boxing.
    If you guys sleep sound at night thinking it's not spoon fed like i've described , then happy days to you, but i've been hardcore fan of Boxing for nearly 40 years and I can honestly say it's politics politics politics and lies.

    I wish I could be as hardcore as you. What's your twitter name, would love to give it a look over.

    Its OK to admit you are clueless on a subject though no matter how hardcore you are.

    Nowt weird about bringing up something said previously in a thread which you later backtrack on,

    Saying "weirdo alert", is weird though, you weirdo

    I'm probably the nicest guy on here, don't know why people react to me in the way they do.

    Atleast you held your hands up and admitted you were in the wrong, John1965 however just seems angry with life, I probably would be if I had to go home to his wife every night though aswell.

    Eubank Jr just announced hell be fighting on ITV box office against an aussie who's had 11 fights. Knowing about the Eubanks reluctancy to spend on an undercard and ITV's sporting budget this could possibly be the least watched PPV fight of all time, if it actually goes ahead.

    Looks like Amir Khan and Kell Brook are going to get it on next year. That will be one hell of a fight.

    I think Brook has too much power for him, the only way Khan wins is a close to faultless performance my Amir to win this,
    I think Brooks technique, brain, chin and power top that of Amir's, the only area Amir has the edge is speed.
    I've not seen many fighters with the timing and footwork that Kell has, match that against Amirs defence and chin and I think its an early night.
    Would have liked to have seen this last year tough before they both fought above their level, although I suppose it increased Kell's popularity therefore making the payday for both bigger now than at this point last year.

    I have a couple of problems with this comment, and I am going to be honest.

    1. They are both 30, this is peak for boxers or there abouts.
    2. They did not fight above their level, they fought above their weight, their levels of boxing is world class. If you watched the fights Canelo and GGG were not technically better, they just had more power as a result of weight simple as that.
    3. Amirs chin is not that much of an issue his defence is. Brook would have been flat out if he got tagged by the shots that KO`d Khan.
    4. I think this is a 50/50 fight.

    They fought 2 of the p4p top 10 boxers in the world, Kell Brook's level previously was mandatorys and Shaun Porter, who has since gone on to lose to Thurman aswell. Yes he's a world champ but he is yet to prove himself a world class boxer. If he fights and beats Khan and Spence this year then I will class him as world class,

    Kell is and has been one of my favourite fighters for many a year and I think he can go on to do great things, but to call him world class at this moment in time because he has demolished Jojo dan and Bizier wouldn't be right.

    When the fight comes around Khan wont have fought at Welterweight for over 2 years, his wins previously haven't exactly screamed world class, Algieri, a keep busy fight for a lot of welterweights, Alexander, a natural lightweight who never did anything at welter Collazo who's never really troubled anyone at genuine world level.

    Khan has never beaten anyone that has any power, he has now resorted to avoiding anyone with any power and see's Brook as his biggest and only real pay day.

    The Shawn Porter and Thurman fight was very very close, could have went either way IMO.

    I do not think Errol Spence is a benchmark to be world class, I mean Spence is very good, but we do not know how good yet. Algieri is about as high as Spence has gone thus far too.

    Khan beat Maidana who beat Broner etc. Maidana has knocked out the majority of people he has fought.

    I know they fought P4P top 10 fighters but weight is still the issue for me.

    I think if you look at Khans losses they are not horrific:
    Prescott hit him with a 1 in a million shot - look at his record it is horrific.
    Garcia - granted was a huge shot (Khan wasnt doing bad until this point)
    Peterson - that was SD and very questionable, not to mention he was juiced out of his head.
    Canelo - as above.

    Jack vs De Gale this weekend, what a way to start the boxing calendar, the more I hear from De Gale the more I like him, hope he does the business to set up a huge domestic fight with Callum Smith in the summer! My wife and I will be staying up for this one!

    What channel and time does the program start mate? I want to watch this one too and really rate the smith brothers especially Callum so hope that fight happens too, if they are both in the matchroom team Hearn usually keeps them apart though
