Yeh I'll be watching the fight tonight, hope Stuey can win and then he'll be fighting for a world title again. I'm sure some of the Darlo fans will go over for the fight in Liverpool after today's match. So definitely going for Hall, but it'll be a war of attrition.

Hall was outclassed last night, but put up a brave effort. I think at 37 he has come to the end of a colourful career. Good to hear all the fans from Darlo over in Liverpool.

Billy Joe Saunders was superb last night in Montreal, against a supposedly world class opponent.

That should be a quality fight, hope Eubank Jnr wins. I remember seeing his dad fight at the Dolphin Centre!!!

Was impressed by Okolie last night against Chamberlin, but it wasn't a great fight, far too much holding.

Okolie is another overhyped Matchroom fighter. Should never have been a headline fight at the o2. Unfortunately Hearn has the casuals on his dick these days.

Watched the Wilder fight this morning, he was lucky and I doubt Anthony Joshua will have seen too much to be worried about.

Joshua will beat Wilder but a fully fit and motivated Tyson Fury would beat them both.

Thing is, Fury will always have the excuse of not being fully fit or motivated because he's an overweight waster.

He’s knuckled down a bit lately. I know a couple of people who are very close
to him and he’s serious about returning and getting his titles back.

I can't see him getting back to the top, too slow against people like Joshua and Wilder.

Too slow how? His footwork for a big lad is very good. He’s a far better boxer than Joshua and Wilder put together. Granted he doesn’t have the power of those two but he didn’t have the power of Wlad and absolutely schooled him.

He hasn't got the maneuverability that Joshua and Wilder has got, they'd be on the move all the time.

Are you mad? He has better movement than Joshua. I have been watching Joshua since about 2010. I’ve seen him training in the EIS many times. His footwork and movement is piss poor. As is his head movement. Watch some previous fights and just watch the footwork. Honestly, people massively underestimate just how good Furys footwork is.

Joshua would embarrass the pants off Fury.

Like has already been mentioned though, he has his excuse already lined up.

This is a weird place for you to be spending your time, Tyson.

Based on what? I’m not saying he won’t but both at their best Fury schools him

Anyone watching the fight tonight?

Nothing really competitive on the undercard. Pretty much nailed on who is going to win those.

I was planning to go down to town, but that has fallen through. Anybody know any live streaming sites where you can watch the fight live for free?

I ended up going into town just to catch the fight, it was all very underwhelming.

It wasn’t great

Povetkin although victorious is on the slide and isn’t the tallest of heavyweights. Joshua would smash him to bits.

The top three in the world remain Fury, Joshua and Wilder in that order

Fury isn't a top 3 fighter, only because he hasn't fought for a couple of years. He needs 2 or 3 fights before facing Joshua or Wilder. If he fought them now, then it would be a mismatch.

He wouldn’t come back straight into a fight with Joshua anyway.

Couples of warm up fights first obviously before stepping up

As long as Haye stays fit, then there is only one winner.
