    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'm really trying here, guys. I can't work any harder than I do. I don't know why I work so hard for you. I mean, if my best isn't good enough, then how can it even be good enough for like maybe two of you even? I mean, seriously.

    Has Warrington got the self discipline not to get drawn into a shootout? He talks about the crowd but I don’t think it’ll help him here. If anything they’ll encourage him to get involved in a brawl again.

    Lara was a big puncher but looked poor technically. If Warrington can box and move I fancy him for a wide points decision.

    I'm rewatching the first fight now and I noticed that Lara wasn't liking the body shots that Warrington was landing in the first few rounds but then Warrington just went over to head hunting and punching with a known puncher.

    The 4th round should have been it, Warrington was out on his feet and the normally risk averse Howard Foster should have stopped the fight in the 4th.

    Warrington could well be a shot fighter as a result of the punishment he took and I genuinely fear for him.

    For me, the crowd will tempt Warrington out of his game plan. Instead of trying to box his way to a UD, it's going to be a slugfest.

    Lara to win by stoppage.

    Warrington is brave, but Lara has the perfect style to beat him again.

    Warrington at the weigh in was acting very strange, his wild eyes led me to believe he was either off his head on something or it was simply fear, I'd bet on the latter, he knows Lara is taking him clean out again.

    Does anyone back Warrington to actually box clever for 12 rounds? Has he ever done that? Seems to me that he’s won all his big fights by dragging his opponent into a dog fight. For this fight tho it would be his undoing. Good clash of styles should be a great fight

    Agreed don’t think the crowd will help him. I think Josh is going to try to do what he did against Frampton and come out all guns blazing looking for a KO in the first round.

    Never been a fan of immediate rematches after a defeat. Shades of Plumber Pricey tonight I’m afraid…

    Also can’t help but like Lara just because he looks like Alfredo Morelos.
