    I think Maidana is just a bad matchup because he doesn't get intimidated and his timing and punches are awkward. It was interesting to see Floyd adjust to the awkwardness throughout the fight, shows how much better he is than Broner.

    Khan could be Floyd's first legit KO since Hatton. Slow feet, shit chin. Fast hands are useless if you can't get into range.

    Good fight card. Felt that Mayweather's experience was what got him through the fight. Maidana is so awkward to deal with, his style is unlike anyone else's in the division.

    Khan's performance was interesting. He has started using holding and spoiling tactics in his fight style, similar to Andre Ward. Wonder if that's something that Virgil Hunter has coached into him? Anyway, I'm not sure Khan will get Mayweather next; he's better off not waiting and going after the Kell Brook vs Shawn Porter winner, and then fight Keith Thurman if he wins the belt.

    Would love to see Maidana vs Manny Pacquiao, if Golden Boy and Top Rank can agree on that (they won't).

    This is a really good breakdown of the dirty boxing Khan was using:

    Sounds like Froch got schooled in sparring with Eubank Jnr. Will hunt it down tomorrow.

    I'm getting really sick and tired of hearing Groves keep mouthing off now. Really hope Froch knocks some humility into him.

    He's just trying to fuck with his head. I'd love to see Froch get sparked but can't see it. I think he'll find it a lot easier this time around.

    They are both loud mouth dick heads.

    Hope Groves wins just to wipe that smug look off Eddie Hearn's face.

    I think the fact Groves hasn't really managed to rile Froch up yet is getting to him.

    I'm not Froch's biggest fan, but Groves really gets on my tits.

    Beat some people we've heard of and then you can gob off with a bit of credence.

    Says alot about the state of boxing when the 'biggest fight ever' is between two dislikable pricks.

    And to make matters even worse, the winner has to fight James Degale next, so the big headed circus will continue for another few months.

    How on earth is he in any position to challenge for a world title? Good grief.

    Assume everyone will be streaming the shit out of it too? I'm not paying 17 on top!

    DeGale is, believe it or not, ranked in the top 5 of all the World Boxing governing bodies, so if he beats another top ranked opponent, he gets a title shot. The IBF are the strictest of the four when it comes to forcing mandatory defenses, so Degale (and most importantly, Eddie Hearn and Sky) went down that road.

    Boxing's pretty much fucked. If there's even the slightest bit of public interest in a fighter, a few wins against middle of the road opposition will be enough to get them a title shot.

    I saw some live boxing recently in London. There were a couple of low level title fights. Really enjoyed it, and definitely gonna go back. I tell you what though, boxing NEEDS a slow-motion replay. I took my eye off it for a second* to look at the Spearmint Rhino girls and missed the cruiserweight knock out

    *a while

    Yeah I've been to see a fair few fights live and it's can be really difficult to see whats going on at times. Especially after a few drinks.

    I know people arent massive fans of either boxer but I hope Groves punches the fuck out of Froch. (London boy)

    Sounds like Sky are doing their absolute best to sell this fight. BEST FIGHT EVVAAAR!

    To be fair someone (I'm guessing Sky marketing) has done a pretty good job. It's all over the news and has really captured the public imagination, does anybody know what time the main fight is supposed to start (I know it's a bit dependent on the undercard). I get off work at 11 and am hoping I might catch it.
