    Got to give credit to Yarde travelling over to Russia to fight Kovalev,I hope he pulls it off. Kovalev is 36 now and not seen as the monster he once was since the Ward and Alvarez losses . There is some serious talent in that Light Heavyweight division at the moment .

    COPPER DRAGGED TO DEATH

    It did in our house growing up,if my parents found out I'd been smacked/caned at school you could guarantee I would be getting another clip. I did say one of the main findings after the London riots was a lack of discipline in the home so the kids ran wild and took this into older age.

    COPPER DRAGGED TO DEATH

    Your probably onto something there tbh mate. I watched a documentary about the London riots and one of the main findings was there was no discipline in the home and so the kids just ran wild and took this attitude into older age with them.Same as the kids at school now with no fear/respect of authority,school was a good laugh and we all got up to capers but nobody looked forward to the cane,especially in front of the whole class .

    Arm Wrestling (info )

    Defo some big men competing in arm wrestling , just look like they where born to arm wrestle the way they have built themselves up and others that are naturally gifted like Jeff Dabe and his 19" forearms and Worlds biggest hands, Denis Cyplenkov is another with monster hands. https://liftn.com/bodybuilders-hands-are-so-massive-that-they-look-photoshopped/

    Arm Wrestling (info )

    Certainly an interesting sport,a lad sent me a clip of a competition somewhere and one of the competitors looked like a Lobster,he had one huge arm and the other arm was tiny . Looked it up online for a bit and some of these competitors are huge with massive hands.

    Money Jobi mate that's the reason why if it's over there and also it' will be seen as neutral and both fighters must have agreed to it to get the rematch made ! A heavyweight title fight over there is almost a licence to print money. Khan got over 7 million just for fighting Billy Dib. Don't worry about testing Hearn and Haymon will make sure that there respective opponents are well drug tested and any parties notified of any tue usage id expect. Both Hearn and Haymon are shrewd businessmen and there is a lot of money to be made for the winner of this fight .

    I actually thought that Hopkins had beat him,but Calzaghe got the win. The white boy comment did Hopkin no favours,ironic as it was a white boy who knocked him out the ring and that's how his career ended in his last fight.Calzaghe was never even thought of as a cheat and the cocaine thing was when his career had finished and it's a recreational drug tbf not a ped as such .

    I can remember the fights mate,sorry not been on as much lately (wifi is crap out here and data used up quickly) I didn't know it was a WBSS I just thought it was Hopkins unifying the division. Never a fan of Hopkins though he did achieve a lot and even less of a fan in his later career, he was clearly on the juice. A lot of his later fights you only got the fight with him if there was no testing,he was so confident about it he started calling himself the Alien as he wasn't human because he was getting better in his later years,yeah right. Pavlek pulled him numerous times In front of the cameras and Hopkins point blank refused to be tested. Wifi is a nightmare out here .

    Gnash I wouldn't say I've fell into any trap I'm just like the rest of the boxing fans and want to see the best fight the best and not interested in taking sides I'd just like to see the fights to get an undisputed champion. Your right about the sport being more corrupt than ever with governing bodies and promoters,just look at some of the strokes that Hearn has pulled but it done a remarkable job in getting Joshua to global stardom. Be nice to see what comes out of this Whyte situation and this failed test with Hauser reporting it as Dianabol metabolites which where found which has been on the banned list for years,if it is indeed a fail for something recently banned then Whyte had done nothing wrong in my eyes. As for the 600 days keeping Whyte away from Wilder well that is Whytes fault entirely as he refused the eliminator with Ortiz (Brezeale was the mandatory and had to wait a good while for his shot) and it's not the only eliminator that Whyte has refused. My thoughts are that America has always dominated Heavyweight boxing but after the Klitschko era when Fury dethroned Wlad and then Joshua took over picking the three belts ups it has started an America v Britain war now over who is going to rule the division with the Americans having the upper hand at the moment with all the belts being held by two American fighters. Haymon has pulled strokes for Wilder and Hearn has pulled strokes for Joshua. That is why I mentioned in a earlier post that there all at it and all as bad as each other. Who knows what comes next at Heavyweight.

    This problem in boxing with the top fights not being made is only at Heavyweight, most of the other divisions have had like the WBSS tournaments to see who is actually the best in there division. Fighters like Ward SMW Usyk Cruiser and Smith SMW and the current one is at Bantamweight with Inoue and Donaire in the final (iirc). A WBSS tournament at heavyweight would certainly sort it all out .

    Gnash there all at it, Hearn Arum Haymon. Whyte refused to fight the WBC no3 ranked Ortiz for the mandatory slot and instead fights the WBC no 10 ranked Rivas and Hearn still manages to wangle it so its for the mandatory slot ? Far too much emphasis on losing the “0” in todays boxing and boxing is worse for it. The 70s where arguably the greatest era at Heavyweight and they all fought and lost to each other and also more than once. Thats part of what made the 70s era so great, you had the top fighters all fighting each other and in most cases again more than once . As a fan if the Ruiz v Joshua winner is to fight the Wilder v Fury winner then the current Heavyweight scene can redeem itself imo but if not and it just carries on as it is with the Promoters/top fighters avoiding each other then fans will lose interest and the Heavyweight scene will be a bigger joke than it is now .
