    IB's RBR disclaimer:

    DO NOT ASK FOR LINKS! Do not hint for them. Do not ask "what channel?". Do not make any post that could be interpreted as insinuating a link request, even if it sounds innocent (ie stuff like "Gee, I don't have a way to watch this" or "if only this was televised where I live...")


    The folks at ESB do not want to get sued and therefore have adopted a VERY strict policy of zero-tolerance on stream requests to cover their butts.


    Thank you.


    PS. My only other request is that, as a matter of courtesy, you refrain from posting spoilers if you are aware of undercard results that most people are going to see televised on delay. Please also don't spoil results from other unrelated events here. Thanks.

    Great fight. Anyone picking Bakole by launching of Yokas head into orbit?

    Yoka's first fight a little risky but in France the Yoka hype disappeared.

    well, in france and everywhere.

    I'm not and I've never been a yoka's fan, I wont lie, so maybe he has fans anywhere. Not in me, that's for sure.

    But taking into account that I feel as if every fighter I like is having problems in the ring lately, it seems to be a good thing for yoka that I dont like him.

    It's a fairly interesting heavyweight matchup.

    Neither is a top 5 heavyweight, but both are definitely top 25. I think Yoka will probably win, but I'll be rooting for Bakole.

    Interesting match up. I don't rate Bakole that highly but he should be Yoka's stiffest test as a pro to date.

    Is this a big fight in France? It's in a decent sized arena with 20K capacity so I'm guessing Yoka has a decent fan base in France.

    Yoka doesn't look anything special a boring fighter but I don't rate bokole that much and sometimes these type of fights end up been great wars an gonna go yoka late stoppage or points but winning with ease

    I think Yoka will win via wide UD or late TKO. Bakole ain't all that. Yoka isn't, either, but I think he'll take this one.

    Yoka via UD, hoping for Bakole by highlight reel knock out.
