Na he said he thought he was, until he saw the cut... which was horrendous tbf. Just a bit weird imo that it didn't look half as bad when he went back to his corner. Warrington's corner weren't happy about something 

That's as bad as I've saw an eyelid cut for a long time, spose they thought he was milking the injury..

I'm not really sure, but I can't see Lara the least bit worried about Warrington, will it happen again, depends...

Yeah, Lara's fulfilled his mandatory rematch clause now you'd imagine, but i think he'd fancy another fight with Warrington.

Has to be said Lara was warning the ref about Warrington's head coming in from round 1. Warrington will likely fight again before any rematch, and I wonder if that diminishes the chances of it ever happening again. Not sure Lara really needs it. 

He was, Warrington was putting his head in from the start.

Can't see as there's anything for Lara to be worried about in Warrington- and where else could he make so much money atm?!

It may end up being best for both of them for the time being, JW avoids a career damaging 2nd loss to a previously unknown fighter and Lara can walk away with a big win and his rematch clause fulfilled albeit not conclusively.

Warrington can fight Wood or Galahad given how easy it would be to make those fights and maybe win a world title back before going back in with Lara or moving up in weight.

Yeah, that's a fair comment.

I'm sure they'd sooner fight Galahad (again) than Lara (again!)- Wood's an even easier option on paper.

 I think Luke blamed Lara, not sure that was fair...

😄

Just watched again, Warrington was warned about his head twice and butted Lara at least one more time..

Problem being his plan was to stop Lara working on the inside by grabbing him when he was near enough, pity as it was was shaping up to be a cracker...

Haye and Holyfield making comebacks.  Anyone know what time Sugar Ray is on the undercard? 

A sad state of affairs- it was meant to be De La Hoya but he's in hospital with covid so Holyfield stepped in.

Eggington Jkitou was an absolute barnstormer last night

Sam always stops all the punches with his face haha. He won't remember his name by the time he's 40.

It’s just sad people aren’t taking them aside and saying look.. enough.   Holyfield will die in a ring if he carries on much longer.  
 

Eggington will look like the elephant man soon

Is DAZN charging for PPV for Saturday? I cancelled my subscription when price increased and had an email from them about re subscribing but no indication of extra cost for Saturday ?

Not sure it's on DAZN if you are in the UK.

Definitely a tricky one for AJ against a quick moving, technically gifted, southpaw. I keep reading that Usyk might be too small to beat him, which I think is nonsense. The bloke's 15 stone+ and 6ft 3! Of course AJ is bigger and has a reach advantage but Usyk is still big enough to cause an upset.

AJ will need to stamp his authority on Usyk early in the fight. Would be good to see AJ land some big shots early on to deter Usyk from coming forward which he managed against Pulev in his last fight to good effect. If he does that then I could see him going on to get the ko. If he doesn't then it could be an awkward night for him that goes to the scorecards.

Interesting that Usyk is being trained by Anatoly Lomachenko again for this one after they out fought out thought Gassiev together back in 2018- a very similar assignment for Oleksander on Saturday against a far bigger puncher.

Most people seem to think he'll revert to his Cruiserweight style and weight and try to outwork and bamboozle Joshua with shots from unorthodox angles. It's clearly a dangerous game, but if anyone can do it, it's probably Usyk- it's a bit of a shame for the fight that he carries so little power at HW though.

Still surely AJ's most difficult fight to date on paper- and it's fantastic to have shows like this back at last!

I think Usyk could win this. AJ needs to relax and be his devastating self but I worry that he is prone to overthinking and losing his way.
