    Yeah, still a bellend though.

    Interesting to see where he goes next. Think he loses to either Fury or Wilder

    Of any boxer he’s one of the least bellendy. Not too sure why you dislike him so much.

    He is completely manufactured, fair play it has made him millions, but nothing that comes out of his mouth is sincere and is cringeworthy bullshit imo

    Fair enough. I don’t know the guy to say what he’s really like, but most boxers are manufacturing outrage to sell fights, and come across as idiots. I actually find him relatively refereshing.

    He's the only boxer I don't mind listening to...sounds normal, whilst most talk garbage and pretend trash talk.

    Indeed. He comes across as rather level headed, good humoured and normal to me. And normal isn't the usual thing in a boxer.

    Its how it goes in boxing. You big up someone but when they lose you jump on their back and criticise them, when in truth they would knock you out with one half-hearted jab from their weaker arm.

    AJ is a nice intelligent lad, but if anything that’s what holds him back. He’s got the talent but he hasn’t got the aggression.

    I’d love to see him beat Wilder, even though I quite like Wilder too. The heavyweight division has a lot of good characters at the moment. That’s what you need after the Klitschko years.

    Agreed. The hype around AJ as some kind of ‘next Tyson’ hindered him. He’s a good fighter, and has the advantage I guess of being able to adjust his weight to box or to brawl, depending on what is needed.

    OMG what a game between the 49ers and the Saints in the NFL. Unbelievable. Rather fittingly, the Saints have lost it at the death. <laugh>

    It’s an incredible act. Why hasn’t it put out anywhere else?
