    Fair play to AJ. He must be gutted, but has taken it on the chin( no pun intended) and with great sportsmanship. A beacon to some of the other so called sportsmen who trash talk.

    Joshua vs Ruiz the most pirated boxing event since muso started tracking pirated streams in 2017

    Shockingly Fury knocks out Schwarz in the second round

    The more interesting part is how he's made a play for the American market wearing a star spangled banner type pair of shorts, which they seem to have lapped up. Smart move

    I almost mistook him for Carl Weathers. Uncanny
    Don't wear no leather to fit in
    Don't wear no spikes to be cool
    Don't need no woman beside him
    Just make it fast loud and rude

    He put on a show and he looked very sharp. I don't think Joshua could live with him as he's too cumbersome. The Wilder rematch will be some fight.
    Nothing to see here...... can't offend sensitive souls.

    Hey it's not sophisticated, but as I said in a division which doesn't have a particularly popular fighter in its largest market it's a smart move

    Fury has done everything right there. His ring entrance makes the American market want to come onside, and then he gets the job done quickly and efficiently. Good night for him.

    It will be interesting who he fights next at Madison Square Garden, before the inevitable meeting with Wilder. It won't be Joshua or Ruiz and I can't see Dillian White putting American bums on seats or getting them baying to pay subscriptions.

    Pulev looks scary but Fury would beat him comfortably, I reckon. Christ, Hughie Fury took him to points.

    Nope he’s a mans man (also a former World Champion that will make more money on his next fight than we will in a lifetime)

    Gorman was seen as a real talent and Dubois swept him aside. Joyce for him next hopefully.

    Fair play to Ruiz he’s done the right thing in lining his pockets. He would have sold the Azteca out easily but this fight in Saudi will fund his retirement and beyond

    What looked on paper like a fairly mundane HW contest turned out to be well worth getting up for. Not sure a bottle of wine at 5am was ranks as good a decision
