    Yarde is fighting Maksim Vaslov or that is the one they wanted

    Well yeah, he did in round 8 and nearly had him out of there. He gassed obviously after that but it's a fair call saying that he pushed him to the brink.

    I'd be suprised if Dubois v Joyce happens but hopefully it does happen. It's high risk with low reward on Joyce's part so I could see why he doesn't take it.

    An alternative view is he got outboxed for all but one round and knocked out by a jab.

    Yeah, he did, but he also nearly had Kovalev out of there in the 8th which can't be denied, and yes, he went down to a jab as he was spent by then and could barely stand up.

    I personally think it's a good fight if it happened for Dubois. No doubt he'd win, but we all know how good Wach's chin is, and Wach would launch some attacks of his own and wouldn't come solely to survive like Kevin Johnson. It would be interesting to see if Dubois could stop Wach.

    True enough, but he took some rounds off of Whyte which will help justify the fight if they take that route, which hopefully they don't.

    If this was PPV
    Dubois vs Joyce
    Yarde vs Vlasov
    Cacace vs Sharp (British)
    Brad Foster vs Lucien Reid (British)

    Not a casual card, but I would happily watch Foster and reid again. Sharp vs Cacace would be very interesting.

    Foster Reid had to happen again after the last fight, Reid should've got the decision.

    If the rematch is anything like the first fight then we're in for a treat.

    Nice little lead in to Fury Wilder should BT get it

    Frank needs to make the fight. There is no rivalry or hype. Joyce would be a name on Dubois resume and nothing more, get it on there and progress him. Build on the momentum of the Nathan win if there is anything left of it

    Unfortunately there’s no rivalry between anyone these days. Even Whyte and AJ have “respect” for one another. Rivalry creates fights and bigger revenue. Someone, anyone; make up something about another fighter and get the ball rolling.

    Dubois just needs to call Joe Joyce a slow has been who never has and never will do anything in the Pro game. Joyce needs to say that Dubois has zero chin and as soon as he lands on the bodybuilders chin then it’s lights out.

    Or just simply tweet “I hate ............ so much, I’d love to spark him out in a parking lot never mind the ring.

    Couldn’t agree more. Promoters trying to manufacture it on such a regular basis for people see right through it.

    If there's no rivalry there then that's just the way it is. Nothing worse then a fake rivalry, we will all see through it and just complain anyway.

    Dubois Vs Joyce doesn't need any bad blood for it to be a great fight.
