OK so I've been a complete bellend and ordered it haven't I.


Predictions?


I think this is Anthony Joshua's first real test, but I have no doubt that he'll beat Johnson. Probably tko round 5.


Brook will beat Gavin comfortably.

someone in the pub last night said you can get a good price on Kevin Johnson managing to get to the 6th round, im sure he said 12s but that sounds a bit generous, seeing as how hes taken some real big hitters the distance.
RE: Boxing thread

Cant see too many surprises to be honest, the only `shock` if you can call it that will be Kevin Mitchell will freeze up, get beat and perennially blame issues outside of the ring.
RE: Boxing thread

Johnson took Vitali Klitscho the distance a few years ago. Never been stopped, getting on a bit now though at 35.



I expect AJ to beat him, and probably even stop him, but this is easily the best opponent he's faced. You'd expect him to step up in class each fight of course.



Brook is going to teach Gavin a lesson I think.



Looking forward to it, bottled it with the ppv though, as usual!

I'm disappointed in you Magic. These PPV events are bullshit and Eddie Hearn should hang his head in shame at trying to coax 15 quid out of this card.



Each Matchroom fighter tonight bar Kevin Mitchell is a clear favourite



Scott Cardle - 1/4

John Wayne Hibbert - 5/8

John Ryder - 8/13

Lee Selby - 4/11

Kevin Mitchell - 21/20

Anthony Joshua - 1/200

Kell Brook - 1/12



The main event on a PPV card is a 1/12 favourite!



Hearn keeps doing it because it's working and Matchroom/Sky are making money from it. The Cleverly v Bellew PPV was an embarrassment yet here we are again, so it was obviously a success. Everyone complains but still pays their money. The market needs to tell Hearn that this isn't what it wants. The only way to do that is to keep your money in your pocket and boycott it.
RE: Boxing thread

I completely, 100% agree.



I'll boycott when everyone else does!
RE: Boxing thread

It's easy to boycott, just get a stream or go to the pub and watch it.
RE: Boxing thread
By Magic147 3 years ago
I don't really do streams due to past frustrations, and I have the wee one this evening so the pub is unfortunately out of the question.



It's OK, I've saved a few quid on season tickets these past few years!

Yeah, with so much of this bollocks in sport I guess you have to pick your battles.

Cleverley just won with a disgusting body shot. Looks sharp again at light heavyweight.

That was special from Lee Selby.

RE: Boxing thread

Selby was superb then, great performance.



Mitchell is going to lose this.
RE: Boxing thread

Missed Selby, did he stop him?

fight was stopped, doctor came in, Russian lad had a couple of cuts above his right eye, Selby won all but one round though, 7th round stoppage i think
RE: Boxing thread
By Magic147 3 years ago
The cut was caused by an accidental clash of heads so it went to the scorecards after I think 7 or thereabouts.



Selby UD.

Mitchell looks like he's been hit by a truck
RE: Boxing thread
By Magic147 3 years ago
That was brutal.

AJ next
RE: Boxing thread
By seanmacca100 3 years ago
Absolute hero how he attempted to plow on with that mind. Looking forward to AJ, could make a big statement tonight if he gets a stoppage within 6.
RE: Boxing thread
By Magic147 3 years ago
Does AJ have the same bodyguard as Karl Oyston?
RE: Boxing thread
By CheshireSeasider 3 years ago
As unlikely as it is, always remember Tony Thomson wasn't given a chance against David Price and he had him over in both fights.
RE: Boxing thread
By Magic147 3 years ago
Oh my goodness.
RE: Boxing thread
By CheshireSeasider 3 years ago
Fucking hell!!!
RE: Boxing thread
By blackpool ger 3 years ago
Should have been a first round stoppage.
RE: Boxing thread
By blackpool ger 3 years ago
Never been stopped before he's never came up against AJ though
RE: Boxing thread
By Magic147 3 years ago
What the actual fuck?



The guy is a machine, he's looking absolutely unstoppable. Just devastating.
RE: Boxing thread
By CheshireSeasider 3 years ago
I think hes ready for a Stiverne or Chagaev now
