Kell Brook has a tough fight on his hands against Terence Crawford tonight, most peoples best pound for pound boxer at the moment. I can't see Kell winning but hope he doesn't take any more damage to his head/eyes. 

Can't see Brook lasting long sadly. One big pay out before his retirement i imagine. 

His fights against GGG and Erroll Spence really knocked him back over the years. 

Looking forward to the Katie Taylor fight earlier as well. Good to see Matchroom promoting more womens boxing just a shame all the outdated Boomers have to run it down

Thought Kell Brook did well in the first 3 rounds. But then Crawford got warmed up and absolutely pummeled him. Well done to the ref for stopping it early. I noticed they had VAR like system tonight. Hopefully not as controversial as the football version.

Crawford- Spence Jr has to happen now to really prove who's the best Welterweight. 

Credit to Brook. Fought Golovkin , Spence and Crawford in four years and gave them a good fight. Perhaps its time he retires before he permantly damages his eye sight. Shame we never got Brook-Khan in the end.

Brook has not been the fighter he was for a few years now, mainly due to the injuries. 

But the night he beat undefeated Shawn Porter in Vegas was one of the finest displays I can remember from a Brit on the other side of the pond. Nothing was in his favour that night, apart from having a heart like a lion and a steely Sheffield determination to win. 

As mentioned above, the time is now probably right to hang up the gloves.

Yep Kell did well for the first 3 rounds but Crawford showed he has at least one other gear to go up. I too was glad the ref stopped it quickly, no point in Kell suffering more damage.

Errol Spence fights Danny Garcia on 5th December which will be a great fight to watch, I think Spence will win and then hopefully we'll get the fight everyone wants to see, Crawford vs Spence.

Must admit having no fans inside the stadium/arena really detracts from the boxing.

I thought it was weird Crawford was allowed his family in the arena. Not exactly calling it in the middle for both fighters.  

Looking forward to the Garcia-Spence fight should a good one.

Big fight this weekend for young Benn. Massive step up in German fighter Formella who has only lost once and that was to Shawn Porter

Solid fight by Conor Benn tonight. Shades of his father with his performance especially with a step up in formella. 

Potential to be a big star if promoted right and not rushed. Benn vs Josh Kelly would make a decent fight 

Watched the highlights from this and other fights and he looks a real good prospect for the future.  He seems to fight like his dad, tons of aggression, vicious hooks and only forward gears. 

Never forget the Nigel Benn vs Gerald McClelland fight, as brutal a fight as I've ever seen. Benn's heart got him through.

The Dubois hype train is finally over. Credit to Joyce, wrote off by a lot of people including myself but he boxed very clever tonight. 

That Mike Tyson exhibition has some ridiculous rules and a youtuber against a retired basketball player as a co main event. Will be giving it a miss but have to say Tyson looks to be in credible shape.

I wish Iron Mike would pack it in, just laughable.

Errol Spence was too much for Danny Garcia, Spence pressured Garcia the whole fight and gave Garcia little opportunity to use  his big left hand. I couldn't understand why Garcia didn't take a few more risks and open up more but I guess the answer is he'd felt Spence's power and opted to be cautious.

Crawford vs Spence has to get made, mouthwatering contest between the two best Welterweights on the planet by far.

Solid performance from AJ tonight. Pulev can take a punch 

Joshua-Fury 2021 has to happen now 

Yeah. It was a bit odd how he took his foot off the gas after round 3. Almost like he wanted a few more rounds under his belt. But decent effort against a decent fighter. Still think a fully firing Furry will be too clever for him.
