Both were tentative early on with Wilder looking for the odd bomb. Wilder landed flush a few times but Stiverne sucked it up with relative ease. Wilder then used his reach whilst Stiverne struggled to get close and do anything before flagging late on. Pretty boring affair in all honesty.
I reckon Fury does him late on but Klit would destroy him.
Some cool fights on sat. Channel 5 will be showing GGG V Murray. Whilst being tough as nails it's hard to see anything other than GGG ripping shit up. Hughie Fury is on the same bill in his toughest fight yet, will be intriguing to see how he fares against Rudenko.
On SKy is the rematch between Abraham v Smith, it was a bit of a robbery last time out but you'd have to imagine Abraham will be better this time round. David Price is on the bill too against some Brazilian that Joseph Parker put away in 4, gotta be hoping to put on a show and put his name back into contention. Josh Warrington is on too, albeit against some bum.
Define Mayweather easily? Points like pretty much every other fight he has won recently?
Still buzzed for the fight even if I feel Mayweather will win on points. Everyone will point out that it should have happened not long after the Mayweather vs. De La Hoya fight in 2007 but both Mayweather and Pacquiao are still the #1 and #2 rated pound for pound boxers in the world. I just can't see Pacquiao keeping up with Mayweather's jab and move but we'll see.
Yeah, UD. A few years ago when the talk started I was firmly behind the 'Pac troubles him 4/5 times but Floyd wins by split' - now I just think Pac's declined too much and Floyd is too smart, good at counter-punching and keeping distance.
I'd like to see GGG step up to 168, I think he'd get caught out. He's there to be hit. Ward would beat him with ring savvy and skill, Froch with power and toughness. I'd also like to see him against Cotto and Canelo, I think he'd probably win those, but they'd be great fights
