Wow the last fight of Jones I remember was his 1st round knockout loss to Danny Green in Australia. Just looked it up and it was in 2009! Ffs I really haven't followed much boxing these past 10-15 years. :blush:

I'm rather enjoying the silliness between Usyk and Chisora. Really hope the fight goes ahead next month.

Whyte will be a much shorter price favourite than in the first fight.

Enjoyed that fight even though I wanted Loma to win. It was the correct decision despite the judges being to generous to Lopez.

Couldn't believe those score cards. You'd think it was a completely one sided fight if you hadn't see it.

I thought Loma edged it but he was too passive early on so cant have too many complaints.

Chisora v Usyk

Really hoping Chisora gives us all a shock and comes in under 17 stone for this one.

Reckon he'll go the other way looking for extra power. Hope for an early KO otherwise he's toast

I think whatever he weighed against Whye 2 is what he should aim for. He was in great shape for that fight. I agree he needs to be going for power though. He's not going to out box Usyk and he wont outlast him either. He's up against a guy who throws 800-1000 punches in a 12 round fight.

As good as Usyk is, he's definitely a slow starter and there to be hit in the opening few rounds so that's where Chisors will need to land something significant.

Cant wait for this one.

Just watched bits of the press conference. I like both guys a lot. Chisora's a funny one because he used to be such an arse but now he's one of the nicest guys in the division.

Was surprised by how much taller Usyk looked than Chisora.

This fight being postponed several times means he has had so much time to get it right. I reckon he can tire Usyk out. At nearly 17 stone he will be fast enough but still very big

The sky sports lot were saying that's light for Chisora but I dont think they're right. Just googled it and I think it's the heaviest he's ever been? He was under 18 for both Whyte fights. The last time he was over 18 stone was when he lost to Kabael.

I'm not sure a few pounds makes that much difference though.

He was 17 stone 8 for the second Whyte fight. That is why I thought he would come in lighter for this fight. Hope he has the strategy right. He didn't take his tracksuit bottoms off today though. He might have been faking it.

I don't think Del Boy is the one that will awaken Usyk to the reality of heavyweight boxing.

Murat Gassiev with his enormous head, plodded around and stopped Sefiri in the 4th.

Did he look any good? I've seen some boxing fans saying Gassiev will do well at Heavyweight but I'm not sure personally.

I did not see all of it, but what little I did see indicated that Gassiev is ponderous, punches very hard, and has an enormous head.

Really thought the commentators couldn't see Selby was missing with most of his punches.

No controversy for mine.

Del Boy will have to throw some bombs early. You’d think Usyk will win on points if it goes the distance.
