Joshua v Whyte - both unbeaten - is the heavyweight division getting some names again?

...aaaand it's over in the 7th! What a knockout! :woot: The heavyweight division's definitely got a new big name in Joshua; he definitely showed tonight that he's ready for the big fights. He may have never gone past the 3rd round before tonight, but he took plenty of big hits from Whyte throughout. Fury's definitely screwed; if Klitschko doesn't get his revenge in the rematch, then I'm certain Joshua will knock him out.

On the contrary, although Joshua won convincingly, he didn't look ready for the big fights. He still needs quite a bit of experience under his belt before he can go toe to toe with the likes of Fury/Klitschko. He almost gassed himself in the 2nd when he smelt the near KO and it took him a couple of rounds to recover with Whyte winning the round immediately after and getting Joshua on the ropes. It'll be interesting how he can fairs after a potential a 12 round decision fight. I'd definitely like to see a Joshua vs Haye/Chisora fight at some point soon, if he can get those 2 out of the way, he'll definitely be on the road to a title fight with Fury/Klitschko.

Well, Haye's easing himself back into the sport next month by fighting effectively a Twitter troll.,.

...meanwhile, it looks like Joshua's gonna dodge Chisora to go for the European title instead: http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/boxing/anthony-joshua-snub-dereck-chisora-7025307

:blink: Seriously, this company's holding a contest where the winner fights Roy Jones Jr. and if they can beat him, they win $100k. They're also having wrestling, MMA, and grappling on the same card. https://www.urshow.tv/Events/UR%20Fight

April 9th at The O2 in London, (predictably) on Sky Box Office.

So, that show I mentioned last month happened last night. Guess how the fan (who was also an MMA fighter) got on against Roy Jones Jr...

Let's try reviving this again; see if there's still any interest around here.

 

So, Anthony Joshua won the world title, and defended it on Saturday against Dominic Breazeale. Good times!

 

Meanwhile, Tyson Fury sprained his ankle two weeks before the rematch with Wladimir Klitschko, and it's been revealed he tested positive for a banned substance around the time of his match with Christian Hammer last year. Bad times.

 

And Gennady Golovkin vs. Canelo Alvarez isn't happening just yet, because...

Instead, GGG now looks set to fight Chris Eubank, Jr.!

...aaaand GGG just won in the 5th; Brook's corner threw in the towel. Hell of a fight, good effort from Brook, especially since he was seeing double/triple from the 2nd round, but Golovkin showed why he's arguably the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world right now.

Was a fun fight, he says Brook didn't hurt him but you could see GGG got a bit rattled once or twice. GGG vs Canelo is the dream
