    Buatsi is a level above Richards in terms of talent and power but Craig won't give his Title away easily. Cracking fight this. Buatsi anytime after seven.

    To be honest this could go either way. Buatsi is the fav but he certainly has quite a few chinks in his armour.

    That 2016 crop of Olympians isn’t the best - Kelly and Fowler stepped up and got beat whilst Cordina and Buatsi have been brought along very slowly. Makes me think they’re just waiting for the perfect (easy) opportunity to arise.

    To be completely honest, I have not been particularly impressed with either Buatsi or Cordina. I still doubt if they will turn into anything ?

    Richards surely wont be the guy unless Buatsi is that bad lol
    Parker must be pretty decent if he can beat Andrade who is a very tricky customer

    For anyone with access to Blue light tickets they have just put this on there.

    Looking on the 02s website there are literally 1,000s of tickets left so I am guessing you would have a good chance of getting one.

    Have they opened the top tier up?

    No, not all of the bottom either.

    There is a block that is "open" but not a single seat has been sold in it.

    Don’t get why they keep hiring out big arenas. There’d be no shame having this in the Copper Box and packing it out.

    Does seem mad, surely it would cost more?

    Wonder how much is just purely a marketing ploy, but two blocks, one either side of the ring will be 90% empty as it stands.

    Is actually a very good main fight

    Good fight but can’t help feel it’s missing a push from Sky. Doubt anyone outside boxing knows it’s happening.
