No one will want to take on GGG, he's a freak of nature. Murray is the best he's face and he's pretty much powered him into submission.

I'm buzzing for the Mayweather v Pacquiao fight. I agree, it's been late coming, but it still promises to be a great fight. Mayweather has avoided Pacquiao for years, knowing he posed the biggest threat to his record. Pacquiao has declined, however he'll be looking to settle the debate and I expect this will be the most focused/hungry Pacquiao we've seen in years. I think Mayweather is an exceptional boxer but Pacquiao has always been one of my favourites and I really hope he can pull it off.

47-1

I've always been a fan of Pacquiao too, but Mayweather will probably just have too much. I think he'll win on points.

I think I'd expect Khan to KO Brook.

Agreed because providing he does not get too sloppy his hand speed will be far to much for Brook

Easy win for Frampton against Avalos in his first title defence. He's probably my favourite British fighter.

Elsewhere good wins for Tyson Fury and Eubank Jr.

Frampton & Eubank Jr both looked class tonight.

Frampton is the best in the division. Only Rigondeux may have the upper hand.

I thought he was outstanding. Can't wait to see a unification bout between him and Scott Quigg.

I think both fighters want it, but it sounds like Barry McGuigan is playing hardball over it. Which is a shame because I think Frampton would destroy Quigg.

I went last night. Was looking forward to seeing Eubank Jr again as I thought he was unlucky against BJS.

The guy has a lot of learning to do. On the offensive he looks like he can be devastating but don't think Chudinov offered a huge amount in all honesty. Against a better fighter he will get exposed as he is far too open and doesn't look to have too refined a style just yet.

Needs to step out of his old mans shadow as well. His dad's vicariously living through him.

Fury is cumbersome and awful to watch but his size and technique make him very, very difficult to beat.

According Sky Sports News Froch is going to be fighting Ward again in the summer

Doubt it'll get made. Ward won't leave the States and Froch knows there's no money to be made in the US and won't stand much of a chance either.

I'd say Froch would have a decent chance against Ward at the minute. Ward has been inactive for quite a long time and that could play into Froch's hands.

Having said that, I'd be very surprised if the fight did come off. It just doesn't make sense financially.

Ward hasn't fought for yonks. Did he get stripped of his Ring belt in the end?

So Matchroom has lost the purse bid for the DeGale v Dirrell fight meaning he'll probably have to travel to the US now, despite it being announced that he would be fighting on the April 25 show at the O2.

Think this is a good fight. Both southpaws but with DeGale being a switch hitter he could cause a few issues.

Adrian 'the bellend' Broner has called out Amir Khan on Instagram, Khan would eat him alive at 147.

Khan would pummel Broner.

Wouldn't mind seeing Broner vs. Brook though if Amir goes down another route.

Andre Berto is slowly getting his career back on track. He stopped Josesito Lopez last night, albeit it be dubiously. I think another fight against someone like Porter (who also stopped his punching bag) could put either of them back in the mix for some big fights.

I really hope Broner/Khan happens. Would be highly satisfying watching Broner get his head punched in, again.

Someone referred to Broner the other day as 'Diet Floyd' which did make me chuckle.

Mayweather - Pacquiao to be shown on Sky Box Office for £20. I'm happy with that.

Kell Brook with his first world title defence tonight, on SS1 about 10pm. If he defends there will be talk of that all too rare occurrence in boxing these days, a genuine unification fight with Mayweather/Pacquiao.
