    I think that Richards superb performance against Bivol now puts him as number 2 in the UK. He performed better than Joe Smith Jr did against Bivol lets not forget, and Joe is now WBO world champion. Richards proved that when he is focused he isnt out of place at world level

    1. Johnson (clear number 1 at the moment)
    2. Richards (clear number 2 and has the potential to be number 1)
    3. Yarde (marginal 3, just above Arthur and I think he wins a rematch)
    4. Arthur
    5. Buatsi

    I think Buatsi is ridiculously over rated. I dont see where he gets this slick boxer reputation from when the likes of Ryan Ford are lighting him up like a Christmas Tree. I also dont see anything special in his punching power.

    **** poor. Obviously a pandemic doesn’t help but the “progression” of Buatsi isn’t what one expected.

    Buatsi is getting slaughtered for this.

    Pleasantly surprised that many of the Matchroom and Buatsi nuthuggers are even coming out pouring pee all over this.

    Buatsi is either packing glass or has other serious issues because this is shocking.



    Craig Richards fighting Bivol and Buatsi is fighting this? Embarrassing

    This has to be one of the worst card this year. Not only boxing wise but there is not one decent personality to cause a bit of WWE antics like Hearn usually likes to help sell it.
    Snoozefest in and out of the ring, Adam smith and Sky having their pants pulled down 100% this week.

    Yeah its a weird one how they are handling Buatsi. We can only speculate but they clearly dont trust something about him at the moment.

    Bad bad card this week, for me the worst UK card of the year. Buatsi as stated throughout the thread fighting a career padding no mark.

    Tommy McCarthys opponent is tailor made for a KO loss as they try and build him into a domestic clash.

    De Carolis has not been a factor for over 5 years and an easy win for Lerrone.

    Dalton Smith has a decent little step up in Lee Appleyard but Lee has shown he can’t compete at that level just above English level, so if Dalton is as good as he looks it should be one sided.

    Gamal Yafai is boxing Jason Cunningham, who is a decent pro and works hard but I’d say he’s one level up from Appleyard, not quite British title level (will do well to ever win one) but if Gamal is Euro level then again, it’s a one side fight.

    If you put £10 on those 5 to win you’ll get £2.67 back.

    He's 28 now.

    Is he ever going to fight someone with a pulse?

    Yeah, Bolotniks. Ranked 3,5 and 6 with different alphabets and 11th worldwide on boxrec.

    This is a proper test.

    Yeah this is a good fight. Bolotniks has improved a lot from when he started.

    Lol Bolotniks is a good fighter. You should try watching him before you dismiss him

    Bolotniks has no power and has lost a million times in a short career.

    It doesn't seem like Eddie and Joshua will match Buatsi up against a big Light Heavyweight who can punch anytime soon.

    Maybe they know something we don't.

    If Bolotniks had power Buatsi would have been in trouble. Not buying the hype at all with this guy.

    Bolotniks has no power? Did people not see the Ward fight?

    Half this forum were picking Bolotniks to win and now Buatsi beaten him, he's apparently a poor fighter now?
