    Hearn will have just sent his pre fight written letters to the IBF WBO WBA sanctioning bodies to lobby for the mandatory’s to take place to stop the Undisputed fight happening .

    He didn’t go to jail cos of the embarrassment to Team GB and the sponsors it would have caused,anybody else would have got the jail time .

    Early rounds gave me Frampton Vs Quigg vibes. Very little landed, but the slightly better work from Uysk giving him the majority of early rounds is probably why people are a bit split between ‘Uysk schooled him’ and ‘good effort from Joshua, closer than some people will give him credit’. Not a lot to chose from them early on even if Uysk did take many of the early ones.

    Joshua is a very good boxer. Usyk is an Elite, once in a generation level boxer.

    Bit random but just wanted to say I enjoyed posting in the RBR tonight, I don't normally post much here i mostly just post in classic forum and lounge sometimes.

    But it was good to see everyone as excited as me, and seeing everyone elses opinions on the scoring.

    Overall I enjoyed the 2 undercard fights Smith/Bauderlique Zhang/Hrgovic and the main event lived up to the hype for me, and the extra bonus of Joshua's meltdown made it more compelling.

    Overall though a good night of boxing.

    Just saw Tyson Fury on Instagram. He is drunk as **** in Mallorca, Spain and said that this was the worst champion fight and he is coming back

    :lol:
    i will take that as a no then. have some confidence in yourself, i will even give you 2 to 1 odds. what more do you want? i will pay extra for your courage.
    seriously though, everyone knew usyk is the better boxer, and if he went 12 he would win. which is why nobody picked aj to win on points. me picking aj by ko makes a hell lot more sense that those picking usyk by ko. usyk praying to God he survives the rd should tell you that. i called the circumstances right, aj just didnt complete the job.
    funny enough, these same clowns celebrating me being wrong are the same clowns claiming guys the size of usyk would never beat the modern behemoths. while i was saying...

    Really thought the robbery was in place when the first card was read out

    Championship boxing is 50% physical attributes and 50% mental attributes (Tyson never beats, say, Holyfield for just one example.. or Ali, for another). Joshua must be honest with himself now.

    Just saw that usyk won in a good fight. Congrats to him for all the stuff he dealt with going into this fight.
