    Bullshit stoppage.

    Joshua was well ahead, I gave Takam 3 rounds but the fact that he took those rounds after 2 awful cuts and on 12 days notice shows how much of a warrior he is.

    The sky commentary team is absolutely awful. Yes, Joshua was well ahead, but Takam was coming on strong and this is heavyweight boxing, he had 2 and a half rounds to land the big punch. It probably wouldn't have happened but it might have.

    Pretty dreadful card really

    Joshua didnt look great, the Whyte fight was awful and Katie Taylor defends with her face

    I still thought Joshua looked very good and it was a great fight apart from the stoppage. Takam is no joke and Joshua was winning those early rounds quite decisively. It does give pause about what Takam could've done with a full training camp and if he hadn't got those two awful cuts. Still, Joshua's punches caused those cuts so it's not all that unlucky.

    Hearn keeps giving these opponents like a week's notice, it'd ridiculous. Helenius was a late call-in as well, and he was clearly gased after what, 2 rounds? It's really cynical unsportsmanlike to not give these guys the proper time to prepare, just by waving a few $$$ in front of their nose he gets away with it.

    Especially after they practically had s*x with each other after the first match ended. I have no interest in that fight.

    Been a fan of this guy since he beat Bowyn Morgan last year. Love his attitude and this perfectly describes the difference between amateur and pro boxing.

    Yeah. Neither Parker nor Joshua's teams want the Wilder fight.

    Big money is Joshua

    Wilder can't draw flies to **** and is high risk

    Next fights should be Joshua v Parker and Wilder v Whyte (in UK)

    Winners facing off in a massive fight

    I can kinda understand Wilder's reluctance to face Whyte, and it's not because he's scared of him - it's because he'll destroy him in a pointless fight; the dude is barely a top 20 heavyweight. I suppose it raises his profile in the UK but still.

    I think Parker beats Joshua but may lose to Wilder.

    Whyte would be a better opponent than someone like Molina or the Stiverne rematch, so the whole quality argument doesn't really apply to Mr Wilder.

    I agree but I still don't see it as a competitive fight.

    As a fan I want to see competitive fights and ideally that means the 3 champs fighting each other, but if not that then at least someone in the top 10 and Whyte for me is not a top 10 heavyweight.

    Usyk vs Briedis has been made - January 27
    Gassiev vs Dorticos has been made - Feb 3.

    These are amazing fights. Really really good. Dorticos Gassiev in particular is almost certainly going to end in a KO, and Usyk Briedis should be an extremely high-volume fight that may go the distance.

    I think the winner of this tourney should be top 3 p4p.

    yeah I feel it's asking too much of Rigo going up two divisions but still, good fight.

    I want Lomachenko to fight Mikey Garcia next. I think Mikey wins that.
