Does anybody know what time the Joshua fight is on Saturday night & where will the fight be on down in the town centre?
Program starts at 5pm. Normally in the UK the big fight starts round about 10pm to fit in early evening TV in the US.
Thanks I just need to find somewhere that is showing it now in the town centre?

I have actually booked this 1. I don't normally bother but it has me quite interested to see if AJ can come back or is he a spent force.
I do hope if he loses again he walks away before he gets badly hurt because he has been rocked a few times.

I'd be amazed of he loses again, I'm sure he won't be taking Ruiz so lightly this time.

Not so sure. He has been clipped a few times and gone close to going face down. When a big guy hits you it has an effect no matter how good a boxer they are.
I think it more depends on AJ's mental attitude. Does he really want it or has the desire gone? I know a few have now come back to win it twice, but the size of guys now is frightening. Ali and Cooper would be dwarfed by some of the guys about these days.

Just seen on Sky news that "ring walks" are at 8.30pm. I reckon that means a 9pm start.

Watched the weigh in last night.. The most startling thing to me was the 2 photo's of AJ.
This time round he looks mean and keen. Last time fat and lethargic.
Made me think more than ever he went in with a bad attitude last time and totally underestimated the guy.

Comfortable win for Joshua, he did everything he needed too, but it certainly wasn't a spectacular fight.

I had to laugh a couple of times during the fight. The commentator was literally drooling at AJ's performance yet Johnny Nelson used to get booed out of the ring and told he stank the place out for doing exactly as AJ did last night.
Thought it was a very clever performance from AJ. Not once did Ruis look as if he had actually hurt him despite the octaves going up a few times when Ruis threw a punch that landed.

Happy to hear Ruis admit he made a mistake with the weight and that he should not have gone up a stone as he gained no strength but did find it hard to carry round.

Will they "get it on" a third time as Ruis said? I would doubt it at the moment. I think that Wilder etc will be more happy to get into the ring now AJ has been shown to be beatable.

Ruis was embarrassingly overweight. I was surprised that he didn't run out of gas before the end of the fight. I guess that was because Joshua didn't put him under much pressure, with some big punches.

So what do we think will happen in the Wilder v Fury fight on Saturday evening. I'd love to watch the fight but at £25, that's too rich for my liking. Can't see it being on in any pubs in town, as no doubt it'll be on at a daft in the morning.

I am watching it. Like him or not, Fury is 1 of the fighters that puts bums on seats as he is exciting to watch.
Think Fury will wear Wilder down and take him out about round 9-10.

Very disappointed that the fight is not on BBC5 Live. Apparently it is on Talksport.

Would love to see Fury win tonight but my gut tells me Wilder will knock him out, especially with that extra stone in weight 😵 Hope I’m wrong though.

Wow sounds like a fantastic fight & win for Fury, we shouldn't have doubted him. Can't wait to see the fight on TV when they do re-runs. Who will he fight next Wilder or Joshua, that's the big question?

Don't think I could have called it much closer. TF was even more destructive than I expected early on. The fight was won by the 3rd round.

I see the papers are bigging up a Fury v AJ as a 200 mil fight for this summer.

Fury in 4-5 if it happens.
