    Yeah, judging continues to be a real problem in the sport. GGG vs Canelo (Both to be honest) also suffered from poor judging. With regards to this fight, outside of the knockdowns, I think Wilder edged the second round and one other (Can't remember which off the top of my head). But I actually had the ninth as a 10-9, despite the knockdown because I think fury went on to win it fairly comfortably. So I'm basically with you on this one. Clear Fury win for me. Fury has also shown that he has one of the greatest chins in boxing today.

    A knockdown is a 10-8 round. Wilder got two knockdowns (Round 9 and 12) which means two 10-8 rounds for him, but if he lost every other round (Which I'm not saying he did), it's still a wide Fury victory on points (each round being scored 10-9 to Fury).

    AJ is one of my favourite boxers and I think his development has been incredible. The progress he has made is clear to see in each fight and I've been really impressed with his boxing intelligence in his last three fights. But, he's only 22 fights into his career and is still developing and on last nights performance, I think Fury is currently a level above in terms of footwork and ring craft. I'd love to be wrong as it would be great to see AJ dominate, but as it currently stands, I think Fury has the superior skill.

    What a performance from Fury! I had his winning just about every round except for three. How he got up from that final knock down I'll never know. Shame about the judges. The general consensus seems to be that he was robbed. Wilder really has been exposed as being incredibly limited as a boxer now, but that power is frightening and he's got a great jab when he actually uses it! For me, Fury is now king of the heavyweight division and I can't see AJ handling his skills.

    Agree with this. I think it’s too soon for Fury. His timing has looked off since his comeback and footwork not quite where it was before his exile. Hope I’m wrong though. Wilder’s boxing is just horrible to watch!

    There's a really good 30 for 30 ESPN documentary about him too which is well worth a watch, even if you're unfamiliar with him. It's a pretty tragic story and a real case of what could have been. 'No Mas' is another good 30 for 30 doc too actually, all about the second fight between Roberto Duran and Leonard.

    Bellew fought much better than I expected him to and actually showed some genuine boxing intelligence in there at times. Usyk is just phenomenal though and it was only ever going to end like this. These Ukrainian boxers are special to watch. I think Usyk can be a problem for anyone at heavyweight. He apparently gave Klitschko a terrible time in sparring and he'd previously beaten the likes of Joe Joyce quite handily. Despite having a good KO ratio, his style isn't really about power, it's about wearing down his opponent with workrate and consistent pressure. He's incredibly similar to Lomachenko in that regard.

    Thanks Ste, glad you like them! Yeah the lantern pic is pretty bog standard to be fair. Might crop into it a bit to bring out the guy in the red near the bottom middle.

    A few recent pictures with my Minolta XD7 and some cheap Kodak film. I'm having so much fun with this camera.

    I had it 3-3. Povetkin is a dangerous fighter with great movement so I thought it would be tough for AJ. He's getting criticism but I was really impressed with how he adapted his style and boxed his way back into the fight. Fantastic combo to finish too.

    At this point it's like watching your dad and uncle have a fight.

    Yeah I completely agree. I probably would have had no issues with a draw if there wasn't this overwhelming sense of inevitability about which way the judges will score every time Canelo fights. It does feel like he gets he Golden Boy nod far too often.

    It's weird because despite both fights being really epic, I have no appetite for a third fight. I don't think a KO is likely and that means it's an almost guaranteed Canelo victory, especially in Vegas and if it's a Golden Boy / HBO deal, which kind of makes the exercise redundant. And GGG will go into quick decline at his age now. I'd have loved to see the GGG from 4 - 5 years ago fight Canelo.

    I had GGG winning by three but it was close. Unfortunately he was never going to win by decision, even if it was completely one sided. I feel bad for Golovkin as this would have cemented his legacy, but I still think he'll go down as an all time great. He definitely looked his age by the last couple of rounds though.

    That's standard Tyson Fury style. Very effective at nullifying his opponents, and undeniably skilful (Great footwork for a dude that size), but incredibly dull to watch. I respect his abilities more than Wilder, but I know who I prefer to watch!
