I expect Fury to target Usyks body a lot.
Yes.
Fury will be hitting low.

I expect a few early low blows to be belted in, in the style of Golota.

Anyone got a stream for the Taylor vs Cameron match tonight?

Skybet had a boosted bet of a knockdown in the fight from 2/1 to 4/1 so had a free bet and put it on that, Just wanted to give it a watch to see if it happens.

I love women but women's boxing is garbage, zero power, 2 minute rounds and Katie taylor hugging and headbutting for 10 rounds. Awful.

That was a really good fight Shenmue?

I feel like the women's fights i've watched which isn't loads are really fun because they seem to be more gung ho and actually let their hands go

2 minute rounds annoy me and the general lack of the danger of a ko happening takes a large chunk of excitement out of it for me.

The fight last night i found frustrating as taylor constantly got away with holding, never got warned, scrappy fight.

I've never warmed to Edwards.

He has the charm of a sewer rat.

Because he is a British fighter, although that isn’t always the case. Tbh I’ve only ever seen one of Edwards fights. He is clearly a very good boxer but his record suggests little power. The other guy clearly has more pop in his shots. I don’t tend to watch much of the lower weights tbh.
I used to like watching Naz back in the day as he had huge power for a featherweight and pound for pound is one of the hardest punchers of all time.

For all his faults I liked Naz.

I don't give a toss about nationality in boxing. Like fuck am I going support to Sunny Edwards, Josh Warrington and Anthony Fowler just because they share the same country as I do. One of my happiest boxing memories in recent years was watching Inoue smash Jamie Mcdonnell while Caldwell and Fowler were in his corner.

Edwards is very talented, but Bam is something special. I thought it was going to be close in the early rounds (as it was up until round 5), then Bam was going to take over. I didn't think he was going to win that decisively though.

I’ve met Jamie Mcdonnell who is a great guy, I’m surprised you dislike him. Dave Caldwell is sound also imo.

It rubbed me the wrong way that he didn't even know who Inoue was before he boxed him. I get that he isn't a boxing fan, despite competing in the sport, but still it came across as dismissive and amateurish.

As for Caldwell, I will be surprised if you haven't heard the allegations from those who used to train under him?
