A venue WWE fans will already be familiar with, the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia hosts Hughie Fury v Samuel Peter and Amir Khan v Billy Dib, which airs tomorrow night on Channel 5 at 9pm. No idea if this will be a big test for the washed up Amir.

Looking forward to the Lomachenko fight tomorrow.

I had a great Russian forum site where users would always post links but I somehow seem to have managed to lose it. If anyone has anything like that they could PM me I would greatly appreciate it :shifty:

Joshua wins back his titles then. Pretty boring fight, still don't think any sports events should be held over there, disappointed in AJ being complicit in it all.

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

Not exactly a definitive win. Felt like Ruiz lost the fight more than AJ won it. Fury & Wilder must be absolutely chomping at the bit for a shot at Joshua after that.

For the average boxing fan, I can see why people are dismissive and unimpressed by that. However it's the best Joshua has fought in his career and that loss has really made him a better fighter, as it showed tonight. Tactically spot on. With your career on a knife edge, to deliver that kind of performance against such a dangerous opponent was very impressive.

He's experienced nearly everything as a boxer now which will only help him in later fights. Be interesting fight between him and Fury but I don't think it will happen. Fury is looking to get out the game after the Wilder fight, though he does have a contract with ESPN (I think) for several fights so who knows. Wilder will be a danger to any heavyweight as he's probably the hardest puncher in boxing history so he only needs that one second to win a fight. AJ would have to be perfect, but there is no doubt he is the better boxer. I could certainly see Joshua catching Wilder on the way in and also with counter punches.

That's what's so great about heavyweights. It just takes one punch.

But overall, very impressed with Joshua tonight. Top performance, very professional. Gotta mention Ruiz who is a strawberry floating tank and could quite easily win the third fight, as he has the power and hand speed to cause anyone problems really.

Heavyweight division is in a pretty good place right now. As long as the big fights get made!

Do you often contemplate the complexity of life?

Ruiz was in very poor shape there, I know he was obese for the first fight too but to come in at over 20 stone was blatantly an error. He looked off the pace throughout and didn't stalk AJ nearly well enough.

That said, a very impressive performance from Joshua.

The division isn't full of great fighters but would love to see him vs Wilder or Fury. Think Fury is a better boxer and suspect Wilder would catch him and put him down but would be decided on such tight margins.

Anyone else watching on DAZN - how strawberry floating gooseberry fool was that commentary? Thought it was painfully amateurish throughout.

A thorough and intelligent job done from Joshua. Clearly wasn't getting caught cold again.

Get the kite, Beavis.

BT putting UFC 246 this Saturday behind a Pay Per View. :x

It's Conor McGregor's first fight in 15 months but no other fight on the card appeals to me at all.

Thought Fury would win but didn't expect him to dominate in that fashion. Brutal.

He probably won every single round apart from perhaps the one in which he got docked a point. That is what happens when a clever boxer comes up against a one-dimensional (albeit good) fighter.

I couldn't testify to it but it's like Wilder had never faced an opponent who was the aggressor before. He didn't know what to do and repeatedly ended up on the ropes. He and his team have been used to other fighters backing off, looking to avoid that right hand for years and doesn't seem to have developed a Plan B.

If anyone could link me I'd be eternally grateful, trying hard to search for links without getting the fight spoiled but it's pretty tough going. Been looking forward to this one massively
