    So annoyed we have Whyte v Chisora and Frampton fighting at the same time tonight. Think its got to be Frampton though, looks a much sexier fight on paper.

    If Whyte is serious about Joshua needs to be winning comfortably tonight.

    Quite annoying that both fights are PPV! I mean White v Chisora should never be a PPV event.

    That was domination from Warrington.

    Whyte v Chisora was passable, but listening to Joshua trying to sell it as some sort of classic for even Sky was unbearable.

    I'd definitely lose some respect for Joshua if he fights Whyte in April, a profitable fight maybe, but what's the point ?

    Can't not be a PvP fight due to the respective payday of each fighter. And based on the numbers they did even with the Warrington/Frampton clash it was justified as a ppv event.

    Whyte is too high risk / low reward for Wilder/Joshua and Fury... he will probably need to wait for the WBO and WBC to make him mandatory and call the fight before he gets his chance.. maybe around October with the WBO.

    It was a mug, but that was serious power on display from Wilder last night. Sadly I don't see any fight between the big three before the end of the year.

    Joshua still has a better all round game than Wilder, but damn can understand why Joshua's entourage don't want that fight, Wilder with that power is ****ing frightening.

    yep. he'd bulked up a bit for the fight as well, back to about 101kg which is probably still a little light but closer to his ideal weight. Given Joshua's defence isn't his strongest suit, it's a big risk to fight anybody with that kind of power.

    I'd back Joshua for that fight, but yeah its a huge risk. Joshua can easily price Wilder out of any fight for a few years and still make serious money in his backyard with easier fights...hello Mr Whyte

    Wilder v Fury seems an easier fight to make and hopefully it happens in 2019.

    I think Wilder's by far the least technically accomplished of the big three (understandable given, as one believes, he didn't lace up boxing gloves until he was already in his twenties), but he has a monster dig (possibly the most concussive heavyweight puncher I've seen, certainly since Foreman 2.0, who retained a whack well into middle age) and good stamina, so I'd be seriously giving him a swerve too if cash is one's primary concern.

    The heavyweight scene is weird just now. The great plus is we have three unbeaten current or former world champions active at the same time, which I think is unprecedented (it may've technically happened in the 80s before Tyson KO'd Michael Spinks and the WBO title was very much the ginger stepchild of the 4 main belts, in fact the WBC used to require any claimants to its belt give their WBO belt up as a condition for challenging for theirs, but I'm pretty sure this is the first time we've had three serious unbeaten champions ever), but the downside is there's a real big ****ing drop off after Messrs Fury, Joshua and Wilder, especially now Usyk is broken and none of their respective handlers show much serious interest in making the fights we want to see.

    For my quid Fury is the best boxer of the three, but doesn't have heavy hands for a chap of his size, so is likely to have to have serious wars with either of the others and always has the risk of getting tagged. Plus, y'know, he be crazy too and hasn't always looked after himself.

    Crikey, didn't see that coming. Ruiz thoroughly deserved that. Joshua didn't want to know in the end - got his arse handed to him.
