Re: Boxing/MMA

Free boxing currently on Spike then Channel 5 at 10pm.

Interesting British fights due to the differing standards of refereeing. You'll see a lot of punch measuring (Poking your hand to someone's face before throwing your opposite shot) Its not against the rules but something that's been unanimously agreed upon to stop it as much as possible at the top level. Different divisions have it all differently though. See a lot of it at Heavyweight but its called out a lot at Welterweight.

Not sure who Josh Taylor really is but I've seen O'Hara hyped up in recent weeks and in the gym with David Haye, that's a serious name to be have backing you early in your career.

---------- Post added at 22:13 ---------- Previous post was at 22:06 ----------

Guy just walked to the ring WWE's The Undertaker theme. Not sure if I'm making it up or it actually happened.

Taylor is odds on but O'Hara's starting to reverse that on a handful of bookies. Bit of an awkward one for a punt.

I lied I have seen Taylor before. He was on an undercard in the US and performed well.

---------- Post added at 22:32 ---------- Previous post was at 22:13 ----------

O'Hara's stance is awkward for the opponent but really it seems to be detrimental to him too. Leaves him wide open and his accuracy is shocking. Those uppercuts are horrible. Guy will gas or go down at this rate. He's constantly off balance asking to be knocked over and has been tagged twice because he's wide open when he lunges in.

Taylor wins this easily if he boxes and doesn't get into a scrap like the 6th. O'Hara's skill is really lacking. He's so late to every punch.

That was absolutely incredible. Horrifying level of boxing skill displayed from O'Hara Davies. Why there was hype surrounding him for the past few weeks has me bemused.

Re: Boxing/MMA

Yep, I saw the fight. Tbh I was concerned at the end for Ohara Davies and think maybe the ref should have ended the fight sooner. Ohara didn't look right when he got up after the knock down and if it's possible to see that on TV, surely the ref could see it? One more really connecting punch and Ohara could have been hurt badly. I've never forgotten the Gerald McClellan/Nigel Benn fight...

Taylor was quick and skilful and he was always going to win but I think he found Ohara's crouching style awkward for a bit.

Re: Boxing/MMA

Onwards to UFC 213, Nunes drops her fight despite being cleared for it. Still a decent card. Battle of the glass chins as Co main event.

Re: Boxing/MMA

Had this as a rumour a few days ago bit a few places are now reporting it as a done deal.

David Haye is expected to make an announcement for a multi-fight deal for FTA boxing on Dave, that'd put Bellew plans on the shelf surely.

Numerous reasons for this, firstly being he is not as clued up on how his Achilles will hold up as he claims to be. So call it a test run if you may. Secondly being Bellew is in that same boat and his injury isn't as simple as first thought. Haye looks lighter to me, facts need to back that up though. Lastly, it's no secret he's after a bit of money.

Can only really speculate what the future holds for David Haye really. Is this a tune up or is he permanently damaged? I have a sinking feeling his Achilles is way worse than he's letting on and it was already known there was a medical testing clause in the option for a rematch with Bellew.

To over speculate, maybe he's going to announce his return to cruiserweight to fight Bellew there. That would shock the entire division. One could dream I guess. Cruiserweight division would do with a name taking it to box office level.

All in all, injured or not I doubt Haye probably isn't going to let the Bellew rematch go.

Announcement is expected tomorrow anyway and that's from the horse's mouth.

Amir Khan was offered to pay the funeral bill for the family killed in the Bolton house fire. I admire the charity of this bloke but his boxing career is really fading away fast. He seems to be promoting a boxing league or attending charity gigs.

Re: Boxing/MMA

Rare opportunity to say it but Mayweather is rattled. He doesn't like the McGregor style conference at all, especially with the majority of the anti Mayweather crowd. Whilst I doubt he's scared of McGregor inside a ring for 12 rounds there can be absolutely no doubt he fears McGregor's short fuse outside of it by constantly swarming himself with bodyguards anytime Conor threatens to break loose. This has lead to a warning that McGregor will start dropping bodyguards if it keeps up.

As expected McGregor is way ahead I'm the conferences and especially noting that Mayweather isn't quite Mr Money anymore. (See Mayweather tax issue) it seems his money has been tied up leaving him with relatively little to spend and unable to pay his tax bill.

---------- Post added at 17:47 ---------- Previous post was at 16:12 ----------

Forgot to mention that the Haye situation was somewhat correct. He's signed a promotions deal with Dave as well as a stable of fighters to compete on the FTA channel for 2 years. Absolutely great move for boxing lovers. What's unknown is whether he himself is competing on the channel. He did announce a December return with Bellew still favourite which would mean no FTA showing but again that's just speculation. He could still fight on Dave against someone else.

All in all the news of him signing Joe Joyce and others to fight on FTA is cracking news. Bar himself fighting on the channel a few years back its a welcome addition to prospects fighting on FTA TV like channel 5 have been showing.

Re: Boxing/MMA

Reminder that Eubank vs Abraham is on tonight via ITV Box office.

Expect Eubank to win. Abraham is your average level middleweight. He's not awful but he's not capable of fighting the very best either. Just wondering what Eubank is actually aiming for in his career. It's been far from spectacular so far.

Either Abraham is one tough sob or juniors punches aren't massively powerful, I suspect it mainly the former with a tiny bit of the latter, just glad I never had a bet on it because I had a feeling toward a late stoppage in favour of the German.

Re: Boxing/MMA

Chris Weidman recovers from his slump with a submission win. He got floored in the first round though. Forever shot takedowns. Can't see him returning to his former glory as a UFC Champion. He has no chin and given the relentless ground game he executed, he doesn't have much faith in his stand up ability against guys that can strike back.
