    Am I nuts, or does anyone else think think card is rife with potential banana peels? Maxwell typically does well against southpaws, McComb is just as fragile as he is. Crocker is good, but untested, McKenna is durable and underrated. Agyarko is packing glass, and while Troy is as well, he has solid powers of recovery, and a far better resume. As far as Conlan vs Gill goes, both are chinny as hell, at this point, who's the chinnier? Gill has proven to have solid powers of recovery, Mick not so much. So to me, this card is kind of must watch.

    Gill isn't the toughest of tests but I think Conlon has serious questions to answer and I'm not sure how well he holds up under pressure anymore

    I have the same doubts. Okay, being KTFO by Wood is no big deal. But being brutally KTFO by Luis Alberto Lopez, that's problematic to say the least. I've long been a Lopez fanboy and picked him to beat Lowe and Warrington, but he's far from some one punch knockout artist. So if Gill can avoid walking into anything early, when Mick is the most dangerous, that could spell serious trouble for Mick in the middle rounds to late, if he even sees them.

    I think Conlon will win, but as you say their Is a real edge of uncertainty to this fight.
    Should he lose you really wonder where his career goes next - he would be completely done at the top level. Other than a cash out against someone like Warrington (I think both fanbases make it sellable) I don't see what is left for him

    Lewis has exceptional power and skill to match, untested because he’s smashed everyone 17-0

    It looks like the best UK Card so far this year on DAZN UK.

    We should expect at least 2 UK based cards of this standard every month for a stand alone boxing subscription.

    Much better from DAZN UK and a cracking weekend on that channel.

    Hope Jordan Gill smashes Tim Conlan tonight but I think Conlan wins.

    Tbh I think tonight's his coming out party and he makes light work of McKenna.

    Just switched on for before the bell and found that on at the same time is a show from Germany, live featuring Golovkin ducker, Felix Sturm v Altay. Expect it will be available on replay. I’m sticking with the Belfast, despite the commentary team!

    Think he did do some time. Lost interest actually in him around his win over Dangerous Darren.
