I wonder if Shakur Stevenson is gonna go up to 135. Him vs Haney could be a very interesting fight for the purists.

$10 million guaranteed + PPV share changes people

Kambosos missing weight was a massive tell

He looked soft and fought like it

Haney is a good fighter and was shredded

Inoue Donaire 2 is a great fight.

Beterbiev vs Joe Smith Jr is scary scary scary. Someone is going to get seriously hurt in that fight. Probably Smith Jr but...Beterbiev is kinda old now and he's definitely hittable.

This is a really good year for boxing IMO.

Smith is 5/1-6/1 aka 7.0 or so betting wise, he obviously should be the outsider and yes he could get hurt but he can bang and that's worth a small nibble I think.

Yeah I think that's worth it, just based on the styles. Beterbiev has been dropped before. It's gonna be brutal either way.

Simiso Buthelezi has died after losing his last bout. He’s not a name I instantly recognised, but the fight had a strange ending. Always a very sad day for the sport.
RIP

Well at least it was a small bet. Bookies knew , I didn't ,,,absolute massacre that.

Hopefully he fights Bivol next, nobody needs to see a fight with Yarde who will get knocked out in 5 rounds.

Some high interest fights on the horizon

AJ/Usyk with winner against Fury

Bivol/Beterbiev

Canelo/GGG and then Benavidez

Spence/Crawford

Inoue if he moves up

Fulton/Akhmadaliev

Loma/Davis would be huge

Jermall Charlois stuffing up the mws though as is Taylor @ 140

It's a very good year for boxing.

Jesse Rodriguez with an exceptional performance beating up and stopping Rungvisai, should probably put him on the p4p list.

I wonder if we could one day see Inoue vs Rodriguez.

Jai Opetaia's team must have a lot of confidence in him to go from fighting nobodies to fighting Mairis Briedis.

Any of the Aussies know much about Opetaia?

First I heard of him was an ad on Foxtel

Fenech has had something to do with him which isn’t always a good thing as he’s got a record of getting guys fights before they’re ready & basically ending their career
