    I gave Bakole the benefit of the doubt v Hunter (a solid opponent) but tonight confirmed his limitations.

    Imagine Wilder or T. Fury in there tonight

    Both are puddings mate - no threat to the top of the division

    Bakole boxes as if he’s got his heels glued to the floor. I think Nelson is probably lighter on his feet.

    I disagree. He is reluctant to make the same mistakes as with the Wilder fight pre-Ruiz. Wants to remain focussed. As long as Wilder and Usyk don't eff this up, this fight will happen next or very soon. I'm almost certain of it, they all want it.

    I rate Nelson as a trainer and do listen when he gives his opinion.

    Bakole choked v Hunter and was gifted the decision tonight in an unconvincing display. Maybe he struggles on TV I don't know and he did keep on about his baby. As a pro boxer one needs to be professional and ruthless.

    Based on both fights, I just don't see where Billy thinks he is a big threat to the top of the division.

    Hope I am wrong as he looked much better in the Hunter fight

    He was looking good bashing puddings such as Hector Avilla, Matt Legg and Puddings Martin and Molina but those days were gone when old Wlad nearly KOd him at Wembley.

    His stamina and punch resistance are not great and I think Joe Joyce would give him serious problems never mind Wilder or Tyson Fury.

    Yet wilder ducked the fight lol was only interested in bums until Fury coming off his sofa was better than he expected.

    Joyce-Joshua is a cracking fight

    Zero excuses now for Tony Dosh fighting Tyson Fury or Wilder in his next fight - we know his next fight will be another pudding.

    Whats he supposed to do if wilder avoids him AGAIN? From Wilder’s own mouth, he took less money to fight a different opponent. Joshua is very avoided.

    Surely everyone wants Joshua vs Fury next? Setting aside personal judgements of how good they are , their ring record clearly outs them well above anyone else in the division other than Wilder . It's a fight the public are desperate for and this would seem the ideal moment.

    It'll be sad for the popularity of the boxing game if it can't be done in '21 IMHO

    Obviously everyone would prefer Josh-Fury but I wouldn’t mind seeing Usyk get a crack at AJ first.

    Joshua the master of avoiding live opponents - check his CV it does not lie.

    How many fights where his odds were above 1/3?

    The only one was against an old man at Wembley

    Yeah he virtually confirmed it when he shyed away from questions regarding Fury. Wouldn't be suprised if he has an inhouse fight next tbh.

    Pulev was as expected in there tonight, a one trick pony like he's always been and 39 years old who has never been known for his power either and struggled against Rydell Booker of all people last time out. A decent cherrypick. Once he couldn't get his jab going he didn't really have much to offer in there.

    If he fights Fury, I can't see anything other than a one sided beatdown. Fury's miles above AJ, not that AJ is terrible or anything, he just isn't in the same class as Fury.
