    Good domestic card in Dublin at the wkd. The real fun starts the week after, it's been a long time coming.

    Fair play to McGregor, comes across as a clown but a wealthy one. Was never going to beat Floyd, at a taxi rank maybe, but not in a boxing ring.

    Hate all the " I've got the best trainer in the world, he's perfect for me, we just have a connection " bollocks then they lose....change trainer. New trainer is great, teaching me new things and more bollocks, then they lose again and guess what....yep change trainers

    That card in Dublin aint that great a lot of debuts was offered tickets to it but apart from Eric Donovan aka Lillywhite Lightening there is no one on it worth a look at. I think there is not even 1 50-50 fight on the card which is a shame. Saying that I think a lot are gearing up for the Belfast show.

    That Burnett show has a real classic Paul Hyland Jnr v Stephen Ormond could well be the fight of the night. Tyrone McKenna v Tommy Coyle will be another good fight.
    They also got a few bangers on the card with James Tennyson and Tommy McCarthy also feel that a surprise addition of Carl Frampton could be added too.

    GGG all the way for me. It kind of reminds me of the Joe Calzaghe fight with Jeff Lacy. A lot people saying Joe had a padded record fought no one major. But GGG is an amazing fighter that will be too smart for Canelo he can easy box him or bang him out in my opinion.

    Canelo is technically very skilled, but for me GGG is very underrated in terms of his boxing IQ. People just have him down as a banger, but the way he stalks you and cuts the ring off is second to none, he sets brilliant traps.

    Interesting to hear Martin Murray say it doesn't feel like massive one punch power from GGG, it's just the power he has in each hand on both the front and back foot.

    I think Canelo will start well, but GGG to win by tko in 8 or 9.

    The Roman Gonzalez card this weekend is potentially card of the year. All 3 fights are top class. Don't get the attention they deserve at the lower weights though.

    There's about 15 fights on the card so hopefully a few good scraps for the punters. Looking forward to Liam smith and Williams again, great first fight.
    Canelo looks big and ripped with the latest pics he's posted. Not always a good sign as some are saying.

    I heard the Dublin Card went well and Eric Donovan looked good.

    As for the Sky card this weekend people complaining that boxing was dead just look at that card. A great 3 fights on that card that they showcased on sky at Super Flyweight. The card had 3 all action fights. Inoue looked amazing so much power could well move up the weights if he powers goes up the weight with him. Sor Rungvisai destroying Gonzalez wow what a display by him. I would love to see Inoue v Sor Rungvisai would be the best fight in the Super Flyweight and would be the fight that will tell us who the best is in the world right now.

    Gutted for Gonzalez, but realistically he has never looked big enough at super-fly. He should probably look at dropping back down, or if he feels that he has nothing left to achieve at the lower weights, maybe even call it a day. Would prefer to see him go out with a win though, has been a sensational fighter.
