I wonder if we won't see Khan-Brook.
Fixed in what way? The judge scoring is a mystery I don't think people rig the results but the judges can score a fight totally differently depending on their own personal preference it isn't a rigid scoring system.Isn't boxing the most fixed sport? just saying.
Lost interest in boxing over the years, nothing beats watching Tyson. Benn also had good fights, and Eubank up until Watson.
Yep, the 1st GGG v Canelo was just ridiculous, and i agree with Katie Taylor being very very lucky to get that victory at the weekend, it was a draw at best.Some of it is majorly fixed. Fights that definitely didn’t go the right way regardless of how they’re scored such as the first GGG vs Canelo fight. One of the judges had it so wide that it was ridiculous. Byrd has it 118-110 giving GGG just two rounds. That was insane. Another that springs to mind is the first Mayweather vs Madaina fight.
Even on the undercard this weekend. Taylor should never have got the result. I like boxing but results like that make me understand why people can’t watch the sport. It’s shocking that a sport with so much money on it comes down to 3 people’s opinions who earn very little in comparison.
One judge even had Joshua up by 1 when the fight was stopped in the 7th. The other 2 had him down by 1. He should have been much further behind than that and had it gone the distance probably would have got a shock robbery. Because he’s the money man in the division and would have got protected.
Unlucky mate, was a good shout as before the fight I would of said Katie Taylor would of had it.Annoyed me as Betfair after the 6th and Persoon 15/8. Bet365 had her at 16’s and I had Persoon winning so had to get on at that price. End of the 10th thought i’d definitely got on the winner!
And I still had Fury up by 3 in the Wilder fight.
Think this is more relevant lower down the rankings because there's less money involved so fixing a fight can be very tempting if you can clean up with the bookies and it was probably more relevant when a lot of bets were being taken on black markets rather than through legit bookmakers.I just thought I remember the fact boxing is the most fixed or easiest fixed sport. Mind you I am invading my memory banks by about 30 years.
I don’t know what it is about him but I can’t get on board with Okolie not a fan at all of him and Chamberlain.If your all boxing fans, keep an eye on the 6th July @ Manchester Arena, my mate is taking on Lawrence Okolie for the british and commonwealth cruiserweight titles.
We fancy him to push Okolie suprise a few people, I'll be having a few quid on my mate to KO Okolie
Yep, All he did that fight was grab and constantly not listen to the refs orders, had points deducted didnt he ? Think Askin said he was going to go to the BBBC after the fight but not sure if he followed through with it.I don’t know what it is about him but I can’t get on board with Okolie not a fan at all of him and Chamberlain.
I thought he should probably have been disqualified in the fight against Askins and was a very lucky boy.
My mate tore his bicep and therefore couldent fight, but the BBBofC have just made my mate mandatory for Okolie's british title.How come the Okollie fight was delayed this weekend and is your friend still fighting him on the 20th?
I will be doing what I do for all the box office fights find a pub showing it and spend the money I’d have spent on getting the fight in on a few pints.Its shows where the sport is at, Boxing is now filled with corruption and most of the corruption stems from one thing - Money
on this occasion its just a case of being stupidly greedy with what you want out of a big fight, like @jsp said, lost respect for AJ with this as it should of been at Cardiff or Wembley.
It being in Saudi Arabia is a joke, But I'll still be paying to watch it on Box Office so who is the mug here really ?
Ive got a pub and will be purchasing for the pub too, Sky will charge roughly £225 for the pub as its commercial ! Come along @jsp !I will be doing what I do for all the box office fights find a pub showing it and spend the money I’d have spent on getting the fight in on a few pints.
Where’s the pub? Haha
