    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.

    I think Kelly will either win this fairly wide or by late stoppage. Ava's wins over Lejarraga are getting overblown and overrated. He's still the same fighter that struggled against an old Mosley, and got beat down by Peterson and Kavaliauskas. Kerman was just the perfect style clash for him, and had no defense, and even then, the first was a fairly competitive match up until the stoppage. Ava tends to struggle with movers, and if he's on his game, Kelly can move all night. So think Josh will play it safe and keep it at range and tee off on him from start to finish. Yeah Kelly struggled with Robinson and arguably deserved that draw, or even a loss, but so did Kavaliauskas who stopped Ava. And I had Kavaliauskas' match scored a close win for Robinson as well. Robinson is all around just a better fighter than Ava. So yeah, I think the hipster fanboys who detest Kelly are letting their judgment get clouded here, and are looking to the fairly limited Avanesyan as their knight in shining armor, and I think they're going to be bitterly disappointed.

    Brilliant fight this. Looking forward to it.
    When it was first announced I thought Kelly would be in serious trouble here, I don’t know why because there’s been no fights since but my mind has changed and I just think Kelly will take it on a close but non controversial (hopefully) points win. 118-114 or something

    How do you see it @CST80

    Also, a word of warning of all of you, while it might look like Gill is up against it, because Juarez has had several upset wins, he's looked like warmed over ass meat lately and is frequenly being stopped by featherfists. So I think Gill is safe. However... do not be shocked if Davies is battered senseless and stopped. Gollaz Valenzuela is no joke, he controls range quite well, hits very hard, is accurate as hell, places his shots very well, his jab is thudding and most importantly, his hands are very fast, he lands in combination, and his gas tank, like most Mexicans is solid.. So while I'm not overstating it because of what happened with Warrington and Lara last week, it's just that, I watched Gollaz last night, and I literally see nothing but a huge banana peel when I was scouting him. The same kind of banana peel that I saw when I watched Julio Cesar Martinez before his fight with Selby.

    Best non PPV from Matchroom for some time and every fight to me looks very competitive if not a 50/50. I find the Marku/ Charlton matchup particularly intriguing. Charlton looks potentially like the UK's very own 'Shawn Porter', he's built like a tank and pressures and cuts off the ring well. He's levels below Porter, obviously but, if he has a decent beard and can keep the pressure on for the duration, he might, just might be someone for the future.

    Marku flattered to deceive in his last outing but, looks in tremendous shape and very sharp on the pads.
    On paper, this looks like a step up into the danger zone for Charlton, I just hope he is as good as i hope he can be. The UK needs a competitive WW scene to step on after the Amir Khans and Kell Brooks finally hang em up.

    How good is Robbie Davis' opponent? Never heard of him. Usually in good competitive fights Davis.

    Avanesyan is going to check that chin and shock a lot of people. That low left hand of Kelly’s is crying out to be countered.

    Should be noted that Charlton has had to move up in weight to take this fight and he intends to drop down after.

    Haven't watched enough of either to make a reasonable prediction but Marku looked considerably bigger to me at the weigh in.

    I want to get behind Kelly as a fighter, I hope he minimizes the flashy stuff. I don't know why, but as soon as fighters start doing it, I tend to start rooting for their opponent.

    So which fights will be worth tuning in for on the undercard?
