    Probably one of the hardest one-punch punchers in the sport at the minute but he's technically dreadful. Would never have got anywhere near world level if it wasn't for his power

    Just watching it now - total walkover so far.

    Puts in context how big of a step up it was for CEJ - it was supposed to be a British level fight, and the other guy turns out to be a properly world class operator.

    Hoping CEJ keeps progressing and remains unbeaten until they have a rematch.

    That was even more one-sided than I'd expected after reading on here.

    I very much doubt that the rematch will ever happen. If you believe Warren they've twice drawn up contracts for a rematch only for the Eubanks to go AWOL in a similar manner to when Hearn put together a contract for Eubank to fight Golovkin

    I think they'd only meet as champions - that's where the money would be, you'd think?
     
  5. Quality from Saunders..schooled him.

    But Fuck me, canelo and ggg maybe let’s say a tad better than David Lemieux...just a smidgen.

    Thought lemiux and his cornerman were tremendously ungracious.

    As much as I don't like Saunders it's great for domestic boxing that this is the 4th year in a row where a British/Irish fighter has had a big win away from home:

    2014 - Brook vs Porter
    2015 - Fury vs Klitschko
    2016 - Frampton vs Santa Cruz
    2017 - Saunders vs Lemieux

    Predictions for the year.

    Fury gets banged out by Shannon Briggs (or similar) and his fans realise that the emperor has no clothes on.

    AJ to walk through Parker then get beat up by Wilder.

    Eubank beats Groves and is then Beaten by Smith in the super series final.

    GGG beats Canelo and is then beaten by Saunders.

    Kell Brook to retire Amir Khan

    Lomachenko moves up and beats linares.

    Oh! And Haye to pull out of the rearranged Bellew fight and retire.

    I can just about go along with most of these but can't see Callum Smith beating Eubank or Groves
