Oh man, just watched Tyson Fury perform on of the most one sided fights I've seen for quite some time.

Are you surprised? Chisora's a mut! Same goes for David Haye.

I think it will be interesting to see how Anthony Joshua develops over the next couple of years.

Hahaha, well, no, not really. I've seen the previous Chisora/Fury fight enough times to know this could of been much better. Del Boy just switches off half way through the fight. He's going to return, he's got a nice pay cheque from fighting. David Haye's day is over I think. Tony Thompson is also one I like to watch (even if he has past it). Still a very entertaining person.

Anthony Joshua - now we're talking. Lots of people seem to like him. Intelligent, easy to watch, impressive, good work rate. Personally, he's got a very good chance. Funny enough, him and Lee Selby know each other by all accounts.

Looks as if the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight could be next year.......we hope.

Talking to a friend in work recently, we spoke about the amount of professional boxing related deaths that have happened this year. Looks like it's about five. I know one happened right at the start of the year, however, I can't help but think that this might be a fairly low number.

Looks like Zou Shiming is set to fight in Macao in March next year. Could Mayweather be breaking his pattern of a May fight and take on Pacquiao on this date? Anything is possible!

The next fight I'm looking forward to is Tyson Fury on a UK card, I can't fricking wait!

Also, while I was in London (Southwark) last weekend - we stayed near this place. We (me and the wife, who is actually a trained boxer) woke up on Saturday morning, got a breakfast roll and watched people sparing at 9am in the morning through the windows of this place. Great time!

I'll believe this when I see it:

Both Mayweather and Pacquiao posted pics of signed contracts, so it appears to be a done deal.

Who wins, though? Hard to bet against Mayweather, but he's lost a bit of his speed and such in recent years, while Pac really hasn't. I mean, Moseley almost knocked him out. Yeah, Pac got blasted by Marquez, which was a horrible knockout, but it hasn't appeared to have affected him at all. Sometimes KOs like that ruin a fighter (see Roy Jones).

I don't know. Again, hard to bet against Mayweather, but Pac is very capable of beating him. If Mayweather runs and pot-shots the whole fight, which is likely, he wins a boring UD—but if he stands and fights? Could be interesting.

Too bad this didn't happen five years ago but I hope it's a good fight.
