    Anyway. Who's watching Dubois Gorman tonight? While I agree with Warren and Bunce that it's too early for either of them I'm still really looking forward to it. And no I'm not making a prediction.

    It's not too early from a fans point of view, more fights like this and less politics and money grabbing from promoters please.

    We should have seen Wilder v Joshua three times by now.

    Should be a good fight tonight, seems like a true 50/50 and a real clash of styles. :thumbs:

    No idea tonysingh - I'll be looking for (ahem) alternative ways of watching. Commentary on 5Live though.

    Watching Joe Joyce on the Dubois Gorman undercard. He's the slowest heavyweight ever. He might get have cannonballs on the end of his arms but he moves those arms as though he really does have them. He makes Joshua look like Ali. He wouldn't get within 3 feet of Fury with a crowbar.

    Gorman has heart but he's not fighting intelligently.

    Decent fight, Gorman did ok but didn't jab enough for me. A good fight though, entertaining and unpredictable.

    Agree with Sol that Joyce is Terribly slow. But he's a tough, fit lad who would trouble anyone, which is why he'll be avoided by the top fighters. Still, a decent night of boxing, and no doubt BT will upload the full fights go YouTube in the next day or two, which is always a bonus.

    Never fancied Joyce.
    Listened to the Dubois-Gorman fight on BBC R5. I can’t get into it just listening. Commentators can only fit so much description in

    Thoughts on the Dillian Whyte drug test? Not well up on these things but I get the impression the stuff they found doesn't have an obvious innocent explanation? Doubt that, like any driven successful person, I'd actually like Whyte if I knew him personally. But I'd definitely warmed to his public persona and his straight talking, as well as being one of the funniest men in boxing. But there was always his first ban from 2012 … and now this. :(

    That snake Hearn doesn't come out of it all that well also. He might be right that the fight could go ahead as they hadn't had the B sample test results, but they should have told the Rivas camp. Again, I've no idea what the formalities are, but with 2 deaths in the last month or so, Rivas should have been given an informed choice about the fight.

    I wonder if Whyte has been set up a bit here. He's been making so much noise, the boxing authorities don't want him to have a shot as he doesn't fit their agenda. His prior ban for doping makes him an easy mark. Admittedly this all sounds a bit wild but boxing can be a dirty as fuck sport with all the politics and so forth.

    I think personally I'm clutching at the straws a bit because I'll be fucking devastated if it's not a fit up or a mistake. :(

    The one thing I cling to is that it should have been hard to say some of the things he said about Big Baby Miller here:



    … if he wasn't doing it himself. :(

    So if the test he failed was before the fight, either they didn't have a result so what was the point, or they did, in which case why did the fight take place? Imagine if (god forbid given this last week) something had happened to Rivas...

    There was an easy boxing question at the pub quiz tonight and I didn’t know it. :(

    <ashamed>

    What was it? Promise I won't Google

    Answer was Manny. Recent fight. Totally slipped my mind. I’m the team’s boxing specialist too.

    Also nearly got a Bible question wrong too. I feel emasculated. :(

    At least I got the science ones.

    Luke Campbell with an impossible task against Lomachenko tonight. Or is it?

    Might try and find a stream because this could be a brilliant fight.

    Don't give a fuck about Campbell, no offence to him.

    Just want to see Loma again. He's mind-bending.

    Anyone got a stream?
