Great boxing today, Kambosis Jr's IBF eliminator starts next and Andrew Moloney with a huge task ahead of him against Inoue, geez if he can pull that off it will be remarkable.

Only saw the last 2-3 rounds but Kambosis looked good indeed and the commentators were staggered with one of the judge's decision ( surprise surprise )

fu** I wish I watched Gervonta's fight but I don't think it was even televised in Aus and I was too content in chilling anyway. I did see Anderson Silva fight in what should have been bis last fight. But we all know he won't be retiring.

Usyk won on points too. The big Heavyweight and also a friend of Lomachenko.

Kambosos won pretty clear. Commentary and a judge were bias but right guy won. He gets smoked by Lopez.

Usyk v AJ will be a good one. Assuming they avoid Fury who incidentally may fight an aussie in december. McKean is in the running for that fight (though unlikely).

Moloney had nothing for the Monster. P4P king IMO

Tank is a weight bully. Overrated but has star power, especially after today

Kambosos is a natural lightweight, but he somehow seems like a smaller fighter in his own division. A lack of KO power doesn't help.

He has speed, but otherwise doesn't have the weapons to gain the respect of the bigger names of the division, not least Lopez.

Wilder now claiming fury cheated and had loaded gloves

So now he lost because his walkout gear was too heavy and fury had loaded gloves what a ******* sook
Making excuses and talking s*** to try and score another fight is one thing, man has to earn etc.

But accusing a guy of being doped and loading gloves is something else. Very low.

This is a man who barely squeaked by an old Micky Bey. He lacks power but he has heart (could be said about a shitload of our boxers sadly).

Not even the biggest doucebag thing Wilder has done/said. He's just a campaigner

Repeatedly saying he wants to kill a man in the ring. He wants a body on his resume - he's a prick.

Lucas Browne added to the Whyte/Povetkin card. No idea why hes still getting fights but hopefully good odds on his opponent, whoever it is

And he also waited until the rematch clause with Fury had expired by 1 day before he came out with all this crap.
Just looking like a big mouth coward with all this, he knows that Fury beatdown hurt him bad and I think has also damaged his mind.
Guy needs counseling for real.
