    WBA regular title(means very little). But what I meant was a shot at a top ranked fighter like Povetkin? You must agree it's completely out of the blue?!

    Povetkin doesn't hold the WBA regular title (Manuel Charr does :pac:)


    (The :pac: is not to laugh at you but at the Fact Charr holds a title btw)

    Apologies. My mistake. Still I was surpised at Price getting this opportunity. Though the argument above regarding possible blacklisting make sense. Be some craic if Price did actually knock him out. Always liked Price and would love to see him make a few pounds before boxing is finished with him.

    Price Is logical enough. English, good amature background and since the show is all about AJ there's some connection there.

    Price seems like a good guy but boxing wise I’ve never liked price - He’s just awful - In every way! I see povetkin getting rid of him within 3. Don’t get me wrong though, I’d love to see Price beat Povetkin.

    It could well happen of course. I'd like to see Price really give it a go; if he does then I can see him doing well in this fight. I'd be so frustrated to see him in another snore fest culminating in him gassing by the midway point. His career hit a brick wall in the first fight vrs Tony Thompson with an insanely chosen attempted uppercut. He was doing well until that point

    Price wouldn't beat anyone above British level these days. Combination of not being able to pull the trigger on his right hand and a gas tank of about one and a half rounds doesn't help.

    Joyce vs Chisora on the Haye vs Bellew undercard.
    Joyce wins a shutout for me.

    Yep Joyce beats him. Love how quickly they're moving Joyce.

    There could be money to be made there...

    Joyce is 32 they need to move him quickly! I don't see him pulling up many trees with the best in the division but he will win this. Rounds 8-10 ko not that interested in this fight

    Agree, but I suggested that joyce would beat Chisora and/or whyte on a British boxing page after Joyce's pro debut and was met with derision. I reckon there might be good odds here. If i can get Evens on Joyce I'll be lumping on.

    Known to the audience too so when (most likely) Povetkin smashes him, they get to make Povetkin a credible candidate for Joshua's next fight


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,841 ✭✭✭squinn2912


    Good point there about Joyce.

    Yep that's another factor for him fighting Price of course. If it were wilder v Povetkin in USA then it wouldn't be that much of a surprise to see pov fight Washington or someone like that with some Ls on the record. I've thought that Price's big problem has been mental confidence so if he could improve that, as happens in sport when there's only one option, then he can cause problems for anyone.

    As I've said I rate his chances, I'm not making him favourite

    Anybody watching Joe Joyce fight on Dave? When David Haye speaks he sounds like a lad who would arrive at your door selling tools. Totally can't believe a word he says.
    Anyhow looking forward to seeing a bit more from JJ

    Deal agreed for Joyce v Chisora May 5th according to Haye.

    That's a really good fight but surely chisora is shot?

    If Chisora can motivate himself to get up for it like he did the Whyte fight it might be interesting but if not it should be relatively easy work for Joyce. Bookies odds will be very interesting.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,841 ✭✭✭squinn2912


    Expected chisora to get a bigger fight but he's well down the pecking order I'd say JJ ko inside 4 rounds. Makes sense for him it will be a fairly eye catching name on the record

    Shot and sh1t and pretty much always that.

    Round about British level he was a bit of a measurement but finished now.
    What about Joe Joyce? Looking decent


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,977 ✭✭✭✭titan18


    Fury is looking in much better shape in the audience tonight.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,841 ✭✭✭squinn2912


    Didnt see him there is that right? He's bound to call a fight soon

    Compared to a few months ago when we last saw him, he's lost a lot of weight.

    Wow! Different man altogether


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,855 ✭✭✭Morrison J


    He's 18 stone 10 now. Weighed in for the Klitschko fight at 17 stone 8. He's very nearly there.

    What's the source for that? Still looks a bit heavier than then!

    He said it himself on Saturday night, He looks very slim around the face,
    He needs a couple of months training at his desired walk around weight,
    Its not good idea to go straight from losing weight into a fight camp (not to be confused with cutting for fight weight) , He need's a couple of months to work on power and cardio at his desired walk around weight before actually fight camp.
    I think he will 100% need a warm up fight, The issue with Tyson is the longer you leave it till he fights a big fight the more chance he has of falling off the wagon again ,
