    I absolutely love the guy, what a beast. His fighting on the inside is unreal. How he can generate the power in such close quarters is amazing. Bold statement alert here but there's no one at light heavyweight that will beat him, yes I'm talking to you Canelo.

    I was a little surprised when I saw the score cards. At the end of the ninth.

    John McKaie (87-84) Gvozdyk.
    Ron McNair (86-85) Gvozdyk.
    John Poturaj (87-83) Beterbiev. .

    He is unbelievable Beterbiev hits like an absolute mule but can box beautifully as well. Agreed Smoke no one will beat him except father time. Will walk through Bivol. No wonder Callum Smith kills himself to make 168lb that Light Heavyweight division is murderers row with the Eastern Bloc fighters.

    You shouldn't fight a guy with biceps shaped like watermelons and a chest like a silverback.

    That's the one I watched live DB, but the replay quality on Youtube was poor, so had to resort to the Russian version. It looked better on screen.

    I noticed that there's quite a bit of heat between Robbie Davies and Lewis Ritson. Davies was well and truly pissed with Ritson at the presser. There could be a few sparks in the their clash tonight.

    6-5 Davies.
    5-6 Ritson.

    9-4 Cheeseman.
    4-9 Fitzgerald.

    Played Davies to win and The Madman on points here in a Barney Rubble. Looking forward to this tonight.

    I could have gone but I didn't fancy it at the time, regretting my decision now because there could be some decent fights

    Sometimes the boxing scene seems almost dead. Nothing much appears to be happening. At other times though, it's full on quality action every week. Now on the back of that Beterbiev - Gvozdyk fight, we have a monster clash at the 02 Arena next weekend. Regis Prograis will put his WBA & WBC World Super Lightweight Titles on the line against Josh Taylor who'll have his IBF World Super Lightweight Title at stake. The winner of this World Boxing Super Series Final will also be awarded the Muhammad Ali Trophy. This should be a belter.

    7-11 Prograis.
    6-4 Taylor.

    Commenting after the Beterbiev - Gvozdyk fight, Bob Arum stated that the only way that the unification fight could be sanctioned by the IBF, was for for Beterbiev to agree to an immediate mandatory defence of hs IBF belt if he survived the clash with Gvozdyk. The number 1 ranked fighter who'd been asked to step aside to allow for the unification bout to take place, is the Chinese fighter Meng Fanlong. According to Arum, that fight will take place in China early next year.

    Very disappointing and pointless matchup.
    Bivol should be Beterbiev's next opponent.

    Beating the very admirable Frank should
    not constitute a crack at behemoth like Beterbiev.
