Expect this to be the first fight on, and just after 7PM if anyone is interested.

Gutted... actually gutted.
Godfather to his daughter, big night tonight was for him. Runs his own Sparky business and took the fight 2 weeks ago. Sometimes got to admit got beat by the better man, but heís fought live on TV - more than Iíve done.

Manny Pacquiao retires. Many boxing fans would have him in their top ten favourite fighters ever, his achievements are phenomenal. Wish he'd left after beating Keith Thurman a couple of years ago but, alas, he couldn't help himself and Father Time finally caught up. Happy retirement you legend

Ďtis true. Won 12 belts in all from Flyweight all the way up to Super Welterweight. For perspective, he won in weight classes from the very small all the way up to just shy of the weight Hagler fought at. Mad talent

I don't see how. What's your thinking? He was mauled in the second fight and was (imo) fortunate to scrape a draw in the first. Personally thought he lost the first fight despite the two knockdowns such was Fury's dominance otherwise.

*Edit* Having said that I acknowledge Wilder's right hand can be utterly devastating when it lands. Possibly the hardest single shot I've ever seen. You could argue that he only he only has to land flush once to ko Fury.

Can't fucking wait pal. Just finished watching Wilder Fury II again while I should have been doing an online course. As I said in my text, Wilder looked like he knew Fury had his number as the first bell rang. He looked terrified

I hope Fury wins. Really good boxer and a likeable/relatable person. Wilder will no doubt have excuses ready if he loses.

Agreed. Fury has some glaring faults. But itís his acknowledgment of those faults that makes him relatable
