Absolutely right

Haye underestimated Bellew the first time around, but he was still well ahead before the injury.

Bellews power is overrated too, he’s never been a particularly big bitter whereas we all know Haye has that one punch power. He may not have the speed and agility that he had six or seven years ago but he still has that power.

Well, Bellew producers the shock again. Clearly Haye is more shot than most thought. I’d be surprised if we see him back in the ring after that.

More disappointed that Haye was the final leg of my accumulator and cost me nearly £800 for a £5 stake :lol:

I wouldn’t be surprised if Bellew called it a day too. He’ll find it hard to get his body back down to Cruiserweight and the top heavyweights in the division will be too big and strong for him.

I didn't see the fight, but from what I've read it seemed to be a bit of a mismatch, which came as quite a surprise. I'd expect both Haye and Bellew to call it a day. But they both earned a fair wedge from these two fights, which will help to soften the blow.

Surely Bellew must fancy another pay day?.I see Stuey Hall is up for a fight with Gavin McDonnell next month.

I'm surprised that Stuey Hall hasn't called it a day, as he'll never get a shot at a world title again.

He will probably face the winner of Usyk-Gassiev and get crushed

Few good fights on the Hall card. Really looking forward to that one. Lawrence Osueke has only had two fights but having seen him in the gym I honestly believe he could do well in the sport.

Thanks for the info, I'll be watching that fight, but not expecting a happy outcome for Stuey Hall.

Great fight last night too

Lomachenko stopping Linares to become a three weight champion in twelve fights.

Best in the world now for me isn’t in doubt

George Groves dislocated shoulder from the Eubanks jnr fight put's him out the WB series final with Callum Smith.Eubanks to take his place.

Not heard that news, great chance for Eubanks to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

Likely to be announced in the next few days. Makes a mockery of the whole tournament for me. George is the middle super-middleweight in the world so this sort of devalues what has been excellent so far.

Off to Leeds soon for the Warrington Selby fight

Troy Williamson is probably the stand out name. Having seen him up close he’s got a bright future if he stays focused

There are a few in the North East worth watching apart from the obvious two (Ritson and Kelly)

Lawrence Osueke has only had a couple
Of fights but I very much like the look of him

Tom Hill from Redcar I used to work with

Joe Maphosa who i train with is one I like the look off too

Fury returns this weekend. Hopefully he gets a few rounds under his belt which is what he needs. Undercard isn’t too bad either.

Well Fury didn't impress on Saturday night, don't think AJ will be losing much sleep after that performance.

What did you expect from a man who has lost seven stone in a few months, hasn’t fought in three years and has suffered depression and anxiety for long periods?

Give him another couple of tomato cans and then maybe a Manuel Charr in December. It will be another 18 months at least before he’s ready for Joshua or Wilder.

Bellew seems to think he would take him. He wouldn’t.

The fight was awful and shouldn't have even been on TV as the main event. The Ali shuffle was about the best thing he did!!!

No one should have expected it to be anything other than a glorified sparring session for Tyson. I expect a step up in terms of opposition and fitness in the next couple of fights.

Looking forward to Saturday night in Newcastle.

To be fair to Jamie he was fighting one of the best fighters in the world and had obviously struggled big time to make the weight. He’s going up two divisions now which tells you how hard it was.

Stuey can be proud of his career if he does call it a day. Achieved far more than he should have done with his talent which he will admit himself

That night in Leeds was one I’ll never forget

Did you see any of it last night? Ritson was outstanding again. The atmosphere was fantastic for his fight and then fell on its arse for the Kelly fight.

Hope Stuey decides to retire now, he's looking his age and it would be very sad if he became a punchbag for up and coming fighters. Ritson looked the real deal, it's great to have two northeast fighters challenging for world titles.

I’d like to see him in with someone like Tommy Coyle. Then maybe a Ricky Burns. I can’t see Crolla taking that fight as it wouldn’t really make sense for him at this stage of Crollas career.

Quite a lot of people raved about Joshua's performance, but I thought he did nothing more than ok.
