    Got a strange feeling catching Smith at the right time although don't like Fowler for his embarrassing antics on twitter and self delusion I think he may just win this and probably will be even more unbearable than even Tony bellew after

    I’ll go Fowler points. Can’t stand him but can see him pulling it off, rate McGuigan highly as a trainer. Would be delighted/not surprised in the slightest with a Smith win though

    You would think every fight on the card would be available - no excuse of football finishing late etc

    Closer this gets the more I’m fancying Smith walking onto something hurtful from Fowler’s long arms. Smith takes a punch well but I just keep getting feelings.

    I’m sticking to Smith late or points though.

    I’ve said exactly the same. Still sticking with Smith on close points

    Fowler wins the first 2-3 rounds behind the jab.

    But Smith chips away and counters him. By the midpoint Smith is walking Fowler down and he is now on the backfoot looking to potshot with hooks. His jab is no longer effective in keeping Smith off him.

    Around the 9th-11th Smith gets a stoppage. I think he just lands too much on Fowler and cumulative damage tells.

    Fowler might be tough enough to take a beating and see the final bell. If he does then he loses the decision.

    I think it’s going to be a classic

    Weird isn’t it. A lot of people seem to be feeling the same but they don’t know why because it’s against their logic haha.

    Are you going to the weigh in?

    The Smith brothers are embarrassing themselves every time they're getting interviewed.

    Why the unnecessary anger at Anthony Fowler? It's like he's offended them all just by being alive.

    Fowler is an idiot but he's acted like a gent in this buildup. Smith brothers on the other hand are coming across as bitter and Fowler knows that if he says anything, he'll have all 4 gobby brothers piping up so he's staying quiet.

    I want Fowler to win now. There, I said it.

    Courtenay never made the weight - 1.6 pounds over

    The opponent looks the part, very muscular and could be worth backing at decent odds
