    Andrade didn't cover himself in glory, but was far far too good for Keeler. Should have been over in two, so kudos to Keeler for sticking in there, but the gulf in class was clear from the off. Still, decent payday hopefully and now he can have some decent domestic clashes.

    Size difference at the pre fight talk seemed huge, It was always a mismatch quality-wise as well.

    He must have seriously outweighed Keeler on fight night as well.

    Fair enough Len, I was 2 rounds out. He got his shot though.

    Gutted for him and my prediction, 1 round out! Keeler can now say he's been in a World title fight and not many would have predicted that after Doran scrambled his brains so he can be very proud of that, plenty of decent fights for him at 160lbs I expect, Keeler v Rosado could be a decent profile builder for him after a fight against a slightly lesser opponent to get himself back on track, very winnable too.

    Having these youtubers fight during these cards does not work. They were truly appalling. Took all the attention from actual boxers, acted like ****s all week and then one of them fights like my 3yo nephew.

    If Mr Boxing Eddie wants to persist with this, put on YouTube only cards, create them a random Matchroon belt. And boxing people never have to see it again?

    I watched the round this morning whilst I was sat on the toilet, all of it was awful. Boxers dream of big stadium fights, the build up etc, they work hard for years, sometimes decades, from little boys to full grown men, to earn that opportunity, this is just ridiculous. Boxing is getting dragged through the dirt, it's not boosting the profile of the sport, it's cheapening it. Maybe Paul or KSI should go in against a proper pro, get their backsides handed to them, get schooled beyond belief, achieve their dream of making someone a meme ie. themselves and just f**k off and get back to do whatever the f**k it is they were doing before Eddie made this stupid Rocky Balboa Horror Show an obscene reality.

    The British youtuber was terrible. The American looked like he knew what he was doing the British fella not a clue. He had to eat a lot to make the weight as well. I wouldn't like to watch another one.

    That just sums up what a ridiculous mismatch it was, "oooh, one of these Paul c***s needs to win a fight". This sort of s**t would never happen over here, I hope.....

    It is beyond disrespecting the sport and devaluing it.

    When one of these lads gets injured and they all bottle it... I wont be upset.

    Putting that much shorter and lighter Gonzo kid in with that muscular ***** was just irresponsible. Why is money all that matters and why can't there be a point where enough is enough? We've already gone way past that point if you ask me, YouTubers fighting each other, headlining pro boxing cards with one of them having to try and eat themselves up to the weight of their much bigger opponent, reading that is f**ked up enough but the fact that it actually happened is just ridiculous.

    In fairness Eddie is getting a lot of stick about this. A lot of his own fighters not happy.

    That kid with the nose could have been seriously hurt, he was just lucky he was in with a giant pretty boy flexer rather than a trained killer. The celebrations after and the cringeworthy call out made me have to turn it off when I tried to put my head through the 'highlights', absolutely shocking and this needs to stop right away. I'm just glad that we wouldn't entertain such a ridiculous idea in this country, yet....
