Brutal defeat for Kelly tonight. Good call by the corner to throw in the towel especially after the Warrington fight.

I like Kelly but could tell straight away he was gonna tank early on. Went for it in the early rounds and paid for it especially against a quality fighter like Avaneson.

True. Not great for  English boxers at this time. They all seem very undercooked and with an excuse story at hand.  To be fair they have come up against decent stuff. But very poor stuff.

They are better than this. And they know it.

Nowhere near as good as he believed he was. He looks great against poor opponents but doesn't have the power or defense to take him beyond European level. Needs improve massively if he's to ever get near to a word title.

Otto Wallin beat Dominic Breazeale in CT on Saturday night, Breazeale didn't look up for the fight and was well beaten.

On the same card Adrien Broner beat Jonavie Santiago on points, shocking decision as the punch count was 97-207 in favor of Santiago. To my eyes Broner didn't throw and quality punches.

Canelo fighting Avni Yildirim in a mandatory defense of his WBA and WBC Super Middleweight titles on Saturday in Miami. Yildirim was KO'd in the 3rd by Chris Eubank Jr so I won't be paying to watch this one.

Done in 1-2 rounds easy. Pointless fight 

You have to imagine BJS is next for Canelo

Local lad Heaney on the undercard on Saturday night BT boxing. I believe Tommy Fury is the main event/Co main event.

While he is a Sjoke fan, it's always good to see local talent especially on a televised event. 

The last stoke lad who was on sky didn't do any favours for himself with that post match interview. Fair play to him for turning his life around though

BJS vs Canelo would be an excellent fight but I guess BJS will get up to his usual tricks, call Canelo out and back out when the contract is ready to be signed.

We were wrong BPV, it lasted 3 rounds. Yildirim hardly threw a punch, employed the peek-a-boo guard which allowed Canelo to hammer him to the body interlaced with a few brutal uppercuts, he didn't come out for the 4th round.

Eddie Hearn at the fight, can only hope Canelo and Billie Joe Saunders get it on.

Good payday for Yildrim. But a fight that shouldn't have happened really. I believe he was mandatory though? 

Canelo-BJS now confirmed. Wonder if BJS will take it this time. Biggest fight of his career and needs to take his chance 

If Canelo does beat BJS. Who's next? GGG III possibly? I'm not his biggest fan and feel like the drug scandal kind of got swept under the carpet and the decisions in the Golovkin fights were wrong. But he has to go down as one of the greatest to grace this sport especially with his only defeat coming from Mayweather. Not a bad record at all.

Canelo vs BJS will be a very interesting fight as BJS is a cagey defensive boxer and can be difficult to hit. I remember Eddie Renoso saying after Canelo lost to Mayweather, "We can't hit what's not there" or words to that effect. Canelo couldn't lay a glove on Mayweather that night.

The drug scandal was swept away and IMHO GGG won the 1st fight and the 2nd was a draw but no doubt Canelo is a great fighter and a huge draw. I hope there is a 3rd Canelo/GGG fight, this autumn would be perfect.

Marvelous Marvin Hagler has passed away. RIP 

 

Saw that on the local news tonight as Hagler grew up in Brocton, Mass one tough, rough town, he fought many of his early fights in and around Boston.

Always remember seeing the highlights of Hagler vs  Hearns and Hagler vs Sugar Ray, both classic fights. Also watched Hagler beat Alan Minter and Tony Sibson on the BBC with the legendary Harry Carpenter commentating.

Virgil Ortiz Jr (16-0-0) fights former World Champion Maurice  Hooker (27-1-3) at 147ibs, mouthwatering contest as Ortiz has real power and so does Hooker. Ortiz is considered a future super star, we'll see whether he's a real prospect or suspect.

Tremendous performance by Vergil Ortiz tonight, took out Hooker in the 7th round with some brutal body shots. Ortiz confirmed he's a real prospect with potential huge fights in the future against the likes of Errol Spence Jr and Terence Crawford.
