    Hilarious, eubank looked shite against Morrison but you think he goes distance with Canelo???

    Eubank is so easy to hit I would be amazed if he lasted 3 rounds max

    I would like Eubank v Liam Smith at middleweight. Think it would be a cracking fight stylewise.

    If Korobov wasn’t so injury prone we wouldn’t even be talking CEJ.

    I agree with this. Eubank can’t fight even 2 minutes of a round without gassing. His dad was the same really though at a higher level. I think he would have lost the Korobov fight. After all he lost to a 75% washed up George Groves.

    A few of us have mentioned it but fights to make...

    Joe Smith Jnr vs Callum Johnson, winner fights Alvarez

    I'd pay a PPV score to watch either of those two fights, they'd be absolutely brilliant.

    I still say joshua v wilder. Would be a cracker. Probably got to favour joshua atm...but joshua doesnt quite have the skills of fury to stay out the way of him. And doesnt quite have the chin either. He probably needs to back wilder up...otherwise its rounds of trying to not get whacked with that right hand.

    Fury v joshua number one.
    Joshua v wilder number two for me.

    Interested to seeing eubank junior and connor benn progressing as well. In tougher fights. Got a feeling eubanks got a big win in him against the right opponent. I think he,s gonna end up getting knocked out listening to roy jones tho. A lot of people complain about how eubank was trained previously...but i reckon he,d have got success with it against a lot of guys out there. Its just that they put him in with groves a weight above and billy joe saunders...two guys that use their legs very well. Billy with his movement and groves with his judgement of distance. The legs will beat eubank...a lot of guys out there today dont have that tho.

    Although watching his last fight trying to emulate roy...i reckon he,ll get knocked out if he does go up in levels. Be interesting to find out tho.

    I don’t think Johnson makes it past 3/4 against Canelo. Far too easy to hit and when Canelo is unloading them bombs...

    Yeah there's a distinct possibility of that happening but it would be great while it lasted and there's a chance that Johnson could land heavy and buzz or even drop Alvarez.

    Eubank Jr can't beat an elite fighter.

    His best wins are shot to bits James DeGale and Arthur Abraham. He's 31 years old and his career has gone backwards.

    He's not really big enough for 168 and would lose to the top dogs there. He's not got the ability to beat Demetrious Andrade or Jermall Charlo at middleweight. Where does he go? Feast on the Marcus Morrison's of this world for the rest of his career?

    Or maybe try to pick on an over the hill shot welterweight Kell Brook? Fight an old Golovkin who he prays will be shot to bits when he fights him.

    As Public Enemy rapped - Don't Believe The Hype.

    Static Pads don't move nor hit back.

    Junior is his own worst enemy. Canelo folds him and early. Junior could have been so much better but it is now too late at 31 to change.

    I think in time, he'll end up regretting a lot of his career.

    I agree. Just stating how people think he's a destroyer because he lights up the mitts.

    One thing I will say, he's mentally strong. He didn't give a single **** about when he did to Blackwell. That had to be admired, in a weird way.

    I think admired is the wrong choice of word for not caring about your role in a fight that ended with someone's quality of life being ruined forever. I think if you're not at all phased by that there's something a little wrong upstairs, which there almost certainly is. Jnr is just a rich kid with a bully mentality, underneath all of this he is scared. He was too scared to fight Golovkin and he's been too scared to call out any prime fighters since. The one time he has stepped up since was Groves and lets face it, it was very clear after 6 rounds that he was going to lose this unless something spectacular happened. When his opponent lost the use of an arm that was his chance and he couldn't capitalise.

    Jnr and his dad both have serious psychological issues. I put my head through the Piers Morgan thing and Eubank just came across like a narcissistic idiot at times. When you are brought up by someone like that you will undoubtedly have some issues yourself.

    Yeah i really want to see AJ v Wilder, such a shame they didnt get it together as i think they both beat each other on any given night. Would have been so good to get a trilogy out of them. I would actually say its the more enjoyable fight out of AJ v Fury/Wilder.

    Agreed. Aj v furys a good fight...but could just as easily turn into a boring one.

    Cant really say the same for wilder v joshua tho with joshuas slight chin vulnerabilities and wilders ability to bang. Edge of your seat stuff. Tbf fury v joshua probably will be as well. But more likely that wilder v joshua to turn out boring imo.

    The engine and warrior thing are the biggest myths in boxing. He used to ponce about against journeymen for 2 mins 15 seconds or more with his mouth wide open. All to pretend it was an act when he was blowing out his arse. I’ve always said he’s got a bad engine.

    I can’t put my finger on why it is but people are ****ing deluded over Eubank.
