    Tyson vs Ali.
    Tyson if boxing rules applied and enforced, otherwise Mr Muhammad would win.

    To me it's more about celebrity and the beef between the pair - both are well past it. But every fight showing pub in the country will buy it and the punters will turn out.

    FWIW I'm expecting mundine to school him again. IMO Greens power looks gone and he has simply outboxed stationary and stand up type fighters in recent years... mundine will come in light and once again dance around him and get the decision.

    Nothing more than a novelty match these days.
    Might as well roll out Tyson Holyfield III as an undercard just to give something to charity.

    Yeah they will fight at a catchweight... probably around 80-82kg... but mundine will probably come in lighter than that. Green has a fight against a local fighter next week in Kane watts, whose 18-2 record looks impressive until you see the quality of his opposition

    Saw he was fighting someone called Moore. Figured it might be Archie Moore... that's how old Roy is now

    Was a good fight. I watched it with a few people. We were all barracking for Frampton (because we were all partly Irish), but nearly all of us thought that Santa Cruz won the fight. So the result was a pleasant surprise. There should definitely be a rematch. Probably the best fight this year.

    That is the fight to be made. On paper it looks to be the highest quality fight to be made this year. Kovalev didn't look great in his last bout though, so he would need to improve. But I get the feeling that he only needs to land on Ward to make things interesting. As good as Ward is, and as great as he has looked, he did get rattled by Darnell Boone in the past.

    He's going to defend the Lonsdale belt again against Tommy Langford. I reckon Eubank Snr will keep Jnr out of any dangerous fights unless it is money that he can't refuse, so don't see a rematch with Saunders anytime soon.

    I'm hoping Saunders is next after Brook. Perhaps if GGG gets unification then he'll move up in weight.

    Good chance the WBA actually enforce the Daniel Jacobs mandatory. Saunders will price himself out anyway. It was a pity Lee didn't beat Saunders, as we might have seen a unification by now.
