    I saw it this morning. Even if nothing dodgy did take place in the discussions, it definitely does look so from the footage. Especially as he was moved at the start and there is not meant to be anyone else there during fight.

    Interesting what happens next but I just think it's sour grapes, move on with your career.

    World Boxing Association and Washington Boxing Commision don't know the identity of the man.

    Khan needs to have the re-match and just bet him.

    There's been talk on twitter that they've been in negotiations for a while, Mayweather has booked the MGM Grand for the 5th of May so we'll see. Every boxing fan wants to see it, both boxers would be morons not to want $50mill each but that's been the case in the past. Think Mayweather's more interested in it now because Pacquiao looked poor in his last fight.

    Yep, and I thought Pacquiao was less than convincing against Mosley. Pacquiao comfortably won the fight but he wasn't as dominant. I think Mayweather is technically too good for Pacquiao. What do others on this forum think?

    Since the Mosley fight Pacquiao won a split decision against Juan Manuel Marquez. I though Marquez won it and so did a lot of other people, though it was pretty close.

    I still hope Pacquiao will beat Mayweather but can't see it happening. Really hate Floyd but think he'll win, he is the taller fighter, has a much longer reach and Pacman's style suits Mayweather's perfectly. That said if there is one boxer around at the moment who could beat Mayweather it is Pacquiao.

    Kell Brook is to fight Matthew Hatton on March 17. Brook will comfortably outclass Hatton.

    Yeah he'll batter Hatton.

    I like Brook but can't see him doing much in the welterweight division atm. He's right in the middle of the most competitive divisions in boxing, far too many top class fighters in and near to welterweight. Mayweather, Pacquiao, Ortiz, Cotto (might have moved up to middleweight) Khan will probably move up after a rematch with Peterson, Márquez, Saúl Álvarez could move down once he's finished with the Middleweights.

    Mayweather is fighting Cotto on 5th May. Seriously disappointed by this news.

    Chisora has slapped Klitschko during the weigh in. Might not be the smartest thing for Del Boy to do!

    Fair play to Chisora, he showed far more bottle than Haye. I thought the scores were wrong. Chisora surely took more than one and two rounds.

    To be fair Wladimir is a better boxer than Vitali nowadays, quicker round the ring and faster reactions, age has caught up with Vitali. Think Haye would have a good shot against Vitali if the fight could happen.

    Chisora did well, still got nowhere near winning the fight though. Was too inactive, only threw in bunches and let Klitschko set the pace in most of the rounds but that's to be expected with Vitali's reach advantage. I don't think there can be too many complaints with the scoring, Chisora won 3 rounds in my book and split 2. Vitali was a fairly clear winner even if the judges as per normal were homers, Chisora probably got what he deserved with his behaviour throughout the whole thing.

    I agree Klitschko won the fight, I do think Chisora won at least three rounds. I think he deserves credit for making Vit look a 40 year old boxer, not many recent boxers have made him look his age. If the heavyweight division was stronger Vit may have retired a couple of years ago. Haye will be fancying his chances, if Vit is unable to use his jab Haye can get in and out quickly, though Haye will not look to pressure like Chisora which slowed down Vit.

    It's a pity Chisora wasn't in the same conditioning for the Fury fight.

    Yeah spot on I'm certain Chisora would have won that fight if he had shown the same attitude. He's got the potential to be one of the heavyweights competing for titles when the Klitschko's finally call if quits but to be perfectly honest that's not the biggest tribute to him due to the state of the heavyweight division at the moment. I agree he did himself proud inside the ring after the first bell but let himself down again before it.

    I'm sure Haye will fancy his chances against Vitali but I'm still not sure he'll have enough to beat him. I don't know why he didn't use his jab much tonight as it would have made the fight a lot more comfortable for him, but against Haye I think it'll be the main part of his tactics. Haye was made virtually redundant by Wladamir's jab and Vitali's is usually just as effective. He might be 40 but Vitali is still a very good fighter, up there with Lennox Lewis as probably the best heavyweight since Tyson. Haye will have to have the best fight of his career to trouble him.

    Apparently Haye's got himself in a fight with Chisora during the post fight press conference haha. Some people never learn....

    Yep, both fighting - http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/boxing/17088021

    We have our next major British fight. This incident may have ruined the chance for Haye to fight Klitschko.

    Not sure I really want to see Chisora-Haye. As well as Chisora did last night Haye's a different level to him imo.

    I think the pair of them are a disgrace to British boxing, behaving like tossers was always the Americans forte, seems like a couple of ours have taken the crown. The Klitschko's have remained dignified despite getting abused through out their bouts, run their own charities and are UNESCO ambassadors, Haye can't even watch a fight without sparking a mass brawl. Instead of abusing them they should maybe show the Klitschko's a bit of respect, maybe even emulate them a little bit, who knows they might actually be able to beat them if they do.
