The Boxing Thread

Not sure it was a dive in my personal opinion, Mayweather hit him quite hard, and the poor kid was devastated in the end, crying in the ring. Just a weight class and skill set above what essentially is a child kick boxer.

None the less, an out of shape Floyd got paid $9mil for under 3 mins easy work. If organisations are stupid enough to pay the guy such sums, can you blame him?

ITV PPV as well, so they won't even have the Sky hype machine to plug it. It will sell **** all.

Boxing in this country is determined to ruin itself through greed. Nothing fights with middling names headlining PPV events.

Ironically as the US goes away from $100 PPV with DAZN  the UK seems to be going the other way

That's got to be it now for Khan ever fighting Brook.

What a shame it never happened.

It is a shame, but in reality, the fight is 5 years past it's sell-by date anyways, and can we really blame Khan for chasing a big title fight on American soil for millions of dollars, rather than facing Brook domestically?

That said, can't see anything other than a Crawford KO victory!

True about it being 5 years too late, but Hearn reckons there's actually more money in the Brook fight, it'd certainly sell more tickets and do way more pay-per-views over here.

It's up to Khan of course but he's had all his big fights over there and would have been good if he'd given the British boxing fans the fight they wanted before he retires.

The Sun, The Mirror & Boxing News all reporting that Malignaggi v Conor McGregor will go ahead this year, likely April.

Might have something to do with McGregor being banned in UFC, thus needing to keep fighting/make money somehow in the first half of 2019.

Genuine beef between these 2 following the 'sparring video' incident, in which an out of shape Malignaggi was made to look a bit silly.

Personally, this would be a much more interesting fight than the Mayweather one. Malignaggi has skill but lacks the power. At 40, if he could avoid an early KO defeat and take McGregor into the later rounds, it could be very interesting.

Pacman v Broner on Saturday. Any thoughts on this one people?

Pacman all day long imo, probably by UD. It's live on ITV4 if anyone was unaware.

I see Canelo Jacobs has been made too, can only see Jacobs getting ktfo there.

Also only Barry Hearn's bizarre hard on for Sam Eggington can explain him headlining v Liam Smith in Liverpool

No doubt Eggington's tactic of stopping all the punches with his face will be in evidence. He's going to make Beefy look like Pernell Whitaker.
