      Anyone interested in the AJ v Klitschko fight? Personally can't wait for it, hoping for an epic battle. Klitschko took Fury for a joker and I think all Fury's pre fight antics, forced Klitschko to take his eye of the ball, this time he looks focused.

      Been really refreshing seeing 2 guys with a huge amount of respect for each other, yet still making it a must see fight and able to pull in the punters, without turning it into a pantomime in order to sell tickets.

      C'mon AJ!

      Agreed. I can't wait for it either, although I'll be more excited about it after today's game is out of the way. This and the scum game next week should be great.
      We will learn a lot about AJ in this fight, as he hasn't really been tested yet besides a slight wobble in the Whyte fight. I'd be surprised if this goes the distance, I think someone will be getting KO'ed.

      Should be a great fight but Joshua is a Woolwich fan so like other great sportmen like AP McCoy and Mo Farah I simply can't get behind him.

      Fair enough mate. I'd agree with you about Klitschko tho, I'd expect his experience to get him the decision

      Yeah he's an Arse fan, born in Watford. Still a big fan of his, just seems like a really decent guy, also nice to have a British heavyweight boxer who's not a massive tool (other than Bellew), if anything, being an Arse makes me feel a little sorry of him!

      That was a classic! Great stuff. Interesting that supposedly he was ahead on 2 of the judges scorecards and klit winning 1, because I had him behind before the knock out. Really enjoyed it.

      I wasn't bothered but now I'm thinking I would love to see Connor spark him out. Like proper sparko, butterflies round his little head, the lot.

      I've been reading the build up to this. Is it a money making circus or what? When is it?

      Don't like either of the pricks to be honest. I'm kinda hoping McGregor flying head butts Mayweather and they knock eachother out! That's my ideal outcome.

      Otherwise I'd like Mayweather to win as I couldn't be arsed listening to that pikey for the rest of time talking about how amazing he is.

      As much as I think it is a farce I can't helped but be intrigued by McGregor/Mayweather. My boxing fan head can't see any way that McGregor will get through Mayweather's defence but my heart would love to see Conor knock him out. Stranger things have happened and who knows what condition older Floyd will be in now!

      Will be fascinating to watch, just hope it's not a borefest like most of Mayweather's fights have been with him just being all out defence and counter with McGregor tiring throwing/missing big bangers.

      I can't wait for McGregor to be sparked on the canvas with May weather grinning like a Cheshire cat over his like body.

      I'd then like May weather to trip up leaving the ring breaking his leg and he is a prize cunt too.

      I have zero interest in this cash cow and hope it never happens again. It's a travesty for both sports imo. As above its simply a circus and these cunts are the clowns.

      I'm a bit worried about this fight. I don't know anything about McGregor, is he a boxer? If one of these blokes is seriously injured then hopefully we won't see another cash machine circus show like this again. Maybe it will be fine and we'll see a proper boxing match, which ain't a fight, you can see them in many pubs on a Saturday night. I won't be watching as I am a boxing fan and I have (maybe wrongly) decided that this bout has fuck all to do with that sport.

      So do we all want McGregor to win then? and if he's losing to kick him in the nuts and walk off?

      I do not like Mayweather so would be good for McGregor to win, however I think this is a bit of a farce, reminds me of that "classic" 80's fight between Rocky Balboa and Hulk Hogan in Rocky iii.

      I decided to put a couple of shillings on "the money" first round win.

      I think it's a fascinating prospect, on the face of it, it looks like a complete farce, designed to generate huge amounts of money for both fighters but it's still quite intriguing. I'll admit to knowing nothing about UFC, so I've never seen McGregor fight but isn't Mayweather just gonna destroy him? He's beaten all the biggest punchers at various weight divisions during his career, so other than the age gap, I don't see anything to suggest McGregor stands a chance.

      McGregor to get disqualified would be brilliant. Just throw the cunt round the ring and snap of his little head.

      I remember when boxing used to be a sport, no glittery trunks, no music and light shows. Following fighters like Nigel Benn around, some of the fights were in what were like school gyms. The first one I remember that was really over the top bling was in 1989, Benn vs Watson in a tent in Finsbury Park, ooooh, all the pretty lights and the music! The bloke I went with was an old-school east-ender and he was right grumpy, you didn't want to make him grumpy, oh no that was a very dangerous thing to do. I do believe the charming old chap called them 'nancy boy fairy cunts'. Skippy Bruno vs Frank Bugner in 1987 at the Lane was probably a bit blingy, I remember the fight was shite, and I was grumpy, you didn't want to make me grumpy back then either, I was a bit of a cunt when I was younger, now of course I am a really nice old gentleman, you can ask my grandchildren, they think I'm great, stupid fucking little cunts.

      There was some great boxing back in the late 80s, Benn, Watson, Eubank I had ringside seats at most of the big fights, the shine went off that terrible night at the Lane when Michael Watson suffered that awful brain injury. Eubanks was a flash cunt, but never deserved the hate he got for that, flash cunt, but great boxer. I so nearly went to Las Vegas to see Bruno fight Tyson, I went to all his UK fights, but the so-called direct flight the cunt of a travel agent booked for me and Mrs D turned out to be 3 fucking stopovers and it was 3 days travelling each way, I was miffed and was jolly beastly to the agent. Imagine me in the USA? Fuck me, what a hypocrite, all my political principles and lifelong boycott of the place cast aside for a boxing match, what I cunt I was(and still am because my pride and joy Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster will be ripped from my cold dead hands before I give her up!). Yeah, I boycott the place, but exceptions for humanitarian reasons like boxing and guitars obviously must be made.

      I took one of my sons to the Benn v Eubank fight at Old Trafford, he wan't that arsed about boxing and when I pointed out great stars like Sugar Ray Leonard in the hotel we were staying at he was more impressed that the cunt from Men Behaving Badly was there.

      Talking about cunts like Mayweatrehr, that Sugar Ray Leonard was a cunt as well, I asked him to sign my programme at the Bruno/Witherspoon fight at Wembley Stadium, I have never collected programmes or souvenirs but the governor of my local used to hold boxing nights and we auctioned the stuff off for charity, Sugar Ray Cuntchops refused and one of his minders got right lippy when I called him a cunt. See, I told you I was a cunt, being rude to Sugar Ray Leonard and his gang of large gentlemen - stupid! Got way without a beating though, phew! Frank signed it of course, he always did.

      That was a nice bit of a ramble through the past eh? These days boxing is all bling and circus, I hate all this hype and pre-match gobbing off and I really don't like the idea of a non-boxer fighting a great champion, yes Mayweather is a total arsewipe and I would love to see him get a right good slapping in a pub fight, but whatever the outcome of this joke of a bout is, it don't do the sport of boxing any good at all.

      I really don't want to see boxing go like wrestling, OK, I enjoy wrestling, I grew up with geezers like Jackie Pallo , Mick McManus and Kendo Nagasaki, my mates dad was a pro wrestler and I remember meeting McManus and Pallo at Sunday afternoon tea at his house, and surprise, surprise they were really nice blokes and did not hate each other! Wrestling in the UK was always just entertainment, never proper sport, boxing could end up like that, and ... gasp... football! Yep, all this money and talk of Super Leagues, we could see demonstration matches for rich cunts in corporate boxes.

      Fuck me, rambling or what? Tomorrow I'll probably start banging on about Saturday morning pictures and how a shilling bought you a ticket, bus fare each way and a bag of sherbet.........

      TKO in 10th round. McGregor acquitted himself well apparently.
