Thats why he was breathing heavily at the end of the third round. Hes got no stamina at all.

Its more likely Victor Ortiz will be on the undercard against Shane Mosley

Mosley needs to hang up his gloves before somebody else makes the decision for him. He was calling Kell Brook out over twitter the other week.

Fury certainly won the verbal sparring yesterday, although he did come across as a bit of an idiot at times.

I hope Haye doesn't mug everyone off again and make this a 10 round fight.

He is only acting exactly like Haye has in past press conferences to piss him off.

Corrected it for you, but did you really need that press conference to convince you of that? :roll:

It will be interesting to see how Kell Brook performs tonight after his year out with injury. After the first fight with Jones he started to take his training and diet more seriously and his power shot up. I'm going for a 5th round KO but he might look to put more rounds in.

Brook looked impressive for me, at least for the majority of the fight.

Looks like Garcia vs Matthysse will be on the Mayweather undercard. Just got to wait for Matthysse to agree to olympic style drug testing and we should have a very exciting fight.

Showtime look like they're putting together a rather decent card.

The two fights that everyone wants to see on the same card. I think they have got a chance of breaking the 2.5 million PPV buys record.

I'd be very surprised if it didn't. Although the fight I'm looking forward to is Cleverly - Kovalev in August. That looks really interesting. A real 50-50 fight.

Time for Chisora vs Scott. I'm going with a 6th round KO for Chisora.

Gota admit there was a bit of a strange finish but Scott should have got up way before the ref reached 9.

Agreed - Scott didn't seem too bothered by the decision either. Bizarre ending to the figt.

Another good performance from BJ Saunders too.

I'd like to see Chisora fight Wilder and then Thompson. Hopefully by then Price would have racked up a few victories then they could fight each other.

I'd be happy if he took those fights the other way around. Wilder is a far more dangerous fighter than Thompson is in my opinion.

Carl Froch will defend his title against George Groves later this year too - wouldn't mind trying to get some tickets for that actually.

Kell Brook will also fight Hatton conqueror Viacheslav Senchenko later this year. Big step up for Brook and a fight that will determine whether he really can mix it with the big boys in the division.

Also looking forward to seeing how double gold medalist Vasyl Lomachenko handles the step up from amateur to professional. Really excited by this guy. Wouldn't be surprised if he becomes a World Champion in under ten fights either.

Not really that much of a step up at all. This guy got stopped by Malignaggi, has never beaten anyone world class, and hasent faught since the Hatton fight. Kell Brooks record is becoming more padded than an Essex girls bra. Kell Brook should get a KO in about 4-5 rounds.

A win would still make people sit up and take notice.

Deontay Wilder banged out another bum last night - although a slightly better bum than any of his previous bums.

I'd love to see Chisora vs Wilder later this year.

Just watched the Cleverly-Kovalev fight from last night. Kovalev looks like an absolute beast, completely destroyed Cleverly.

I'm astonished that Clev wanted to stand and trade with Kovalev. You don't stand and trade with someone like that.

I'm also surprised that there was no re-match clause inserted into the contract, especially as the fight was voluntary rather than mandatory - not that I'd expect any clause to have been executed anyway.
