So they are using ex champions as judges and not professional judges? What could possibly go wrong there :fp:

Sometimes he comes across as a decent person, but generally it's in the fondness he has for his inner circle of friends and family then he does gooseberry fool like this:

Anyone watching the fights tonight?

Hyped for the Joyce fight, got great odds on him getting a late KO so thought I'd put a couple of quid on.

The Tyson bout will be a shitshow but will check it out anyway.

I'll back RJJ. One of the most watchable, graceful and talented boxers of all time.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

The Tyson v RJJ fight is on at a terrible time for the European viewer. I have plans to be fast asleep at the time.

I keep thinking it'll be like Kimbo Slice vs Dada 5000 too. :slol: :fp:

But I'm curious in a "let's watch a freakshow" kind of way just like The Mountain from GoT doing his first boxing fight next year.

It's Sunday tomorrow, what's the problem?

I'll get up for some UFC events at 4am but I enjoy that way more than boxing. I don't enjoy boxing enough to be exhausted for Sunday (and I'm not easily able to nap so once the fight is over I'm unlikely to get another 4 hours of sleep).

Well Joyce v Dubois was really disappointing.

Ruled a draw but I felt Tyson shaded it.

You reckon? I thought that was a really good fight.

Helped by the fact I won a 50/1 bet on a 10th round Joyce KO :shifty:


Fought Tyson won that - wasn't as depressing a scene as I thought it would be. Please no more though.

Well placed bet that.

Dubios eye looked awful, I think it's pretty pathetic the ex pros complaining that he took a knee. You could see how that last shot to his eye stunned him. If he carried on his career could have been over at 23.

Which ex pros were talking that? I didn't watch any follow up. He definitely made the right decision though.

Like you say, at 23 you can prioritise health - he'll come back and can have a good career. Although I don't see him ever troubling the top level on last night's performance. His ring intelligence wasn't there; when you think he'd throw some left hooks or at least try cut off the ring in that direction, he instead allowed Joyce to move freely and without too much trouble.

DD had the better combos but JJ was controlling him well with the jab. I'm happy for JJ, this should mean one or two bigger paydays before retirement.

Hate and I think frampton were in the studio. Both said it. Also a few others have tweeted or made comment today.

I actually quite enjoyed Tyson/RJJ. Was a lot of clinching but those body shots by Tyson looked naughty! Hope he does some more. Not that I'll be paying for it mind...

Snoop was also hilarious!

That's disappointing, I like Frampton and think he's a clever guy. The eye was strawberry floated, another two rounds of those jabs could have proven catastrophic.

A DAZN monthly sub in Poland is £1.60, vs £25 just for AJ this weekend :slol:

What do people reckon for it? I'm gonna put a few quid on AJ KO/TKO rounds 8-10.
