I hate watching canelo fight. He's slow and unathletic.

Brian Kenny was awful. DAZN has to do better.

I have 7&9 to Jacobs, 8 & 10 were close.

8-4 conservatively for Camelot

My card live was 10-2. Didn’t think Jacobs was connecting well with shoeshine stuff but it looked flashy

I watched it on Sky. I thought they were pretty unbiased. They had it closer than I did.

Great performance by J Rock. Screw a rematch. He's worked his whole life for this, he should get a chance to unify.

M490, I watched the ESPN60 story, 42to1, the other day. Great watch with a ton of Tyson highlights and the story of how Douglas came to fight the fight of his life. I put the timer to the Douglas knockdown in the eighth and twice timed him as being down for a full 13 seconds. Would have been interesting to see prime Holyfield-Tyson as was planned, had Tyson won that fight.

I havent watched in a long time but what I remember is that Douglas could have beat a legit count. He was going off the ref.

If ever there was a KO that gives you bargaining leverage, that was it.

That's a viral KO.

This fucking clown Thurman just said he trained at an LA fitness for his last fight. Seriously

Joshua has been suspect since that Takam fight. I hope Ruiz is not signed to DAZN so Wilder can unify.

42to1 was Douglas-Tyson. Only one bookie was taking bets and that was his line. There was recently a documentary on Douglas by the same name, 42to1. Some great footage of he and Tyson. While it shouldn’t surprise me that he expected to win, hearing his story in full was enjoyable. His dad...whoa, hard fella.

America
Ha no death in the ring for Fury. Man is he impressive.
D'you think it's a smart move on the part of his team to have some fights in the US before the Wilder rematch? To me it seems like it lessens the burden of having to come to Wilder's 'backyard' to take the title; moreover since he's unlikely to KO Wilder and will have to outbox him and get the decision.

Another question is, if they meet in 2020, does it favour Fury or Wilder? Fury has to outbox Wilder and stay off the canvas, and Wilder has to KO Fury. Does Fury have a better chance of avoiding the KO, or does Wilder get a better look at how to break down Fury and floor him? I can see Fury getting sharper with each fight. But I'm not sure Wilder can improve his general boxing skills.

I’m not sure Tyson cares where the fight is. His fans travel well, and he seems like a pretty relaxed guy. If geography mattered, I think he’d insist more on fighting in the UK. He certainly knows how to taunt and tease.

I think Wilder is who he is now. He hasn’t really improved his boxing or his style in years. Obviously time off helps Fury get back into shape and continue shaking off rust. However, he’s gotta be perfect every second of 36 minutes and I wonder if too much success and too much cheering in America gets to his head. His first knockdown by Wilder was a result of his showboating, and while he’s enormously skilled, it takes so much concentration and focus to not get touched once.

Marciano is Toka Khan one to look out for?
I like him. Good body puncher with nice speed who keeps his hands high. Obviously it’s a helluva story, and there’s no shame losing to Galahad. Manfredo’s is a great place to start and apparently he and Roach are meshing well. I don’t see him as a future p4p guy, but he’ll own a belt and have a good career.
