Who's everyone got?

Biggest fight in British Boxing history and I couldn't be more excited.

I think there are so many variables to this fight, but I do feel AJ pull through and knocks WK out in the 8th. AJ is young, fit, athletic, strong and has all the tools to get this done early, but against the man who ruled the division for a decade, it will prove tough to do that.

WK has a lot of things on his side, experience being the main one. I do feel he looked sloppy in his last two fights, especially against Fury where he just looked afraid. No heart to go forward and to drag the fight into the depths and try and knock Fury out.

Thoughts?

WOW...Joshua showed great heart, courage, and determination.
And when he stopped boxing and decided to fight he won.

Very surprised I thought Klitschko would win comfortably. I thought he would dominate Joshua with his jab and straight right hand before a technical knockout around the ninth.

Joshua was better than I thought, has a great heart and can find a little bit more, warrior instinct.

Great fight.

Before the fight I thought Klitschko would be this decades Bonecrusher to the Joshua Frank Bruno, Joshua proved me wrong he has more animal than Frank and a better chin.

I thought Joshua was a goner in the early rounds, I can't believe he recovered so quickly, I guess that's the benefit of being younger. They were both one big punch away from the win and that punch that floored Klitschko! :shock: Breathtaking

Iv been to some cracking boxing matches of the years but that was my favourite by a mile.

the atmosphere was brilliant, the fans were brilliant, the stadium was brilliant...

Iv never seen so many hot women crying like they all were in the sixth when they thought AJ was going to lose :lol:

Hats off to Klitschko too, it takes two to make an exciting fight, and he certainly rolled the years back with that display.

My only hope is AJ starts listening to a sports scientist or someone, there is no need for him to be that big, he could be a stone lighter and easily go 12 FULL rounds and retain his knockout power and speed. All that extra muscle mass, more than he normally fights with, takes up too much oxygen.

I'd say he only needs to be half a stone lighter, but he definitely was too big for this fight.

Luckily, he's got that second wind in him that all great fighters have.

He answered all the questions surrounding him and then some, most importantly his chin.

I watched the fight the other night, was away on holiday Down Under when the fight was on so could not get to see it at the local time of 06-30. It was a tremendous fight, however, had it gone the distance, Klitschko would have won IMO.

Two of the judges had AJ up. With home advantage, unless it was convincing, Klitschko was never going to win on points.

I predict AJ v Kiltschko Two and Bellew v Haye Two.

I have no time for Fury as a person, but the decision to delay the hearing by UKAD, is scandalous.
He was tested in February 2015, and if necessary he should have been banned immediately, not over 2 years later.

Belles is too small to fight the big guys so one last pay day against Have will do.

So the above fights are where the money is...££

It is about the numbers and at the moment there is no American heavyweight who can sell out a big stadium or hit the high notes on PPV.
