    It's a pity he never got in the ring with GGG when he was at his most devastating.

    Would have be great to watch BJS get smashed

    Can't see why there would be anyone clamouring for the return of an entirely unpleasant and repellent individual, either as a fighter or as a human being.

    Was extremely happy to see his comments regarding Daniel Dubois royally bite him on the arse.

    Yes ironic that Dubois has continued his career and worked his way into a good position in the division after BJS had a go at him, yet BJS did the same thing and will never be seen again.

    It's also funny as Dubois copped a sustained beating to his left eye for 10 rounds before eventually conceding defeat yet BJS took 1 uppercut and has been hiding ever since.

    I used to really like watching BJS fight. His outside antics make me not want to watch him though. He really does come across as vile. It costs nothing to be a decent person.

    I always found the Dubois criticism odd tbh not just from BJS. He had a broken orbital bone against a fighter who was coming on strong most people criticising him have probably never boxed. He literally coupdnt see his opponent. He took the smart option and come back another day.

    Agreed. Dubois was also young with the rest of his career ahead of him. No sense in letting Joyce retire him for the sake of winning the commonwealth title.

    Like if a marathon runner broke their ankle at mile 20 and had no way of winning you wouldnt shout at them to keep going.

    I'd like to see him box again to be fair.... Eubank, GGG, Liam Smith.

    Any of those are good fights.

    GGG boxed Canelo for a lot more money.
