    AJ is elite now and that’s all that counts. Disagree about this crop - I think it’s the best for a quarter of a century. I love Usyk’s skill set but I have reservations about him (he had to work very hard to get rid of a very limited Bellew) and don’t think he punches hard enough to stop the super heavys just walking through him. Wilder gets bad press but he’s improved massively and shows decent skill - walking a Cuban craftsman onto that right hand doesn’t happen by accident. Tyson will fight wilder and AJ within the next 18months. We’re in the middle of the best era ever for heavyweight boxing from a British standpoint - enjoy the ride man !

    Mate try a different sport. That was the worst take ever.

    His next two opponents will be pulev then the Usyk if he can get them both in in time. Fury and Wilder will fight twice next year I reckon.

    There is absolutely no way there will be a third fight in the next couple of years, there’s too many big fights ahead and Ruiz is 1- too dangerous and 2- stupid. He fucked it for himself last night. He’s gonna have to rebuild. A fight v Whyte would be big because they’re both gonna be locked out of title shots.

    Yes sir!

    If AJ boxes like last night he could beat Wilder with his footwork.

    Agree from a British standpoint but there’s not been a truly great heavyweight since Lewis in my eyes

    Vitali was class. There might not be one huge fighter but the cluster of top 15 are as good as there's been in a long time.

    That was so cringey. “You heard there’ll be a third”...then a big laugh. He said that twice line every time he had a mic in front of him thinking it was hilarious. What a tit

    He boxed great but will be a lot more challenging using that tactic against someone his own height.

    But Dubois would take AJ (:

    Anyone who criticises that performance last night knows jack shit about the sport, which I’m convinced should be renamed Paul shit....
