    Bit stiff not to get the stoppage, i heard the interview after fight and he said he didn't go for the KO..... He had him that last 30s of rd 12.

    Definitely heard a few oohs and aahs in the crowd.
    Despite the lack of slick haircut.

    Fair dinkum one of sweetest victories I've seen in years. And I don't dislike AJ at all.

    I bet he would still beat the **** out of Ben Horn though.

    Billy Dib has signed to fight Jacob Ng for early 2022 not a bad domestic fight at lightweight. I actually favour Dib even though he is pat his best that’s what makes the fight semi interesting as I don’t rate the Flamingo very highly when it comes to boxing skills.

    Yeah definitely packing that QLD glass.

    Ioane had him absolutely gone in the 1st of their fight. If he had one sliver of technical ability he might have been able to finish it.

    He is an ok domestic level fighter. But seems like another tall fighter who doesn't know what to do with it.

    Yeah and I think Dib is experienced enough to know this and possibly exploit it as long has he is not to far gone he might be able to shatter some more Queensland glass.

    It's great watching a truly elite boxer in action. Glad he wasn't robbed on the cards.
    Was Joshua always a bit overrated ? Losing and getting completely destroyed by the obese Ruiz and now losing to the cruiserweight king is a very bad look for the huge Joshua.
    How do you guys think Usyk would do against Fury ? He would obviously outclass Wilder and make him look like a joke.

    Another thing why oh why had Joshua-Fury not happened by now ? Just another example of a huge showdown that never happened. That's the problem with boxing, always has been.

    The more I think about it this would actually be a fair match up. Ben Horn is bigger so his glass jaw might be able to stand the smaller Hatton kids feather fisted attack. The fight would have to be on neutral ground as Horn gets robbed in the UK and Hatton would get robbed in Queensland.

    Zerafa Hardman and Hunit Fa is great match making but can't cop Gallen going back to beating up novice footy players.
