Prediction Comments

Predictions: 3 of 6 Winners, 1 Perfect, 205 Points   |   44th Place

Joshua vs. Ruiz Jr.
Anthony Joshua, TKO, R5
I don't know why but I gotta bad feeling about this! I just get a feeling Joshua or Wilder are KO'd before they make the fight. Like for feck sakes just make the fight! Its already 2 years late! I get these guys want paid and I'm all for that. Just say that, don't claim your the best and your all about legacy then avoid the legacy fights! Who cares if you lose? Don't these guys understand boxing legends are made in rematches & trilogies? Ali, Frazier Foreman & Lewis, Holyfield, Tyson and Bowe all fought each other multiple times and that is the 2 greatest eras of Heavyweight boxing. Sort it out lads!

Taylor vs. Persoon
Katie Taylor, TKO, R9
Katie Taylor is my GIRL! Been following her since she was fighting to get Women Boxing in the Olympics, her gold at London 2012 was a highlight of a great summer for me so I'll always love her! She's a proper sweetheart too! Like traditional nice Irish country girl, ooft! Anyway she's a badass and the best female boxer all time! Also go watch Katie on NetFlix if you don't like her after that then you're a MONSTER!

Algieri vs. Coyle
Tommy Coyle, TKO, R6
Now Tommy Coyle, he fights like he's from the North East of England, unlike J Kelly! Proper hard nosed, all grit toughness and heart! Algeiri was never great and he's being set up to lose to Hearns buddy Tommy and I'm happy about it!

Kelly vs. Robinson
Josh Kelly, DEC
Pretty Boy is the flashiest boxer I've ever seen from Sunderland! LOL! Fights a little like Prince Naz, so if you like flash you'll love PBK!

Joshua vs. Ruiz Jr.
Anthony Joshua, TKO, R10
Maaaan are looks deceiving. That's the 1st thing I thought after watching Andy Ruíz fight for the first time. Coz he is a large boy. But he very well could be......... The biggest dude on the fatness scale, with the Quickest, Fastest Hands. His hand speed is kinda shocking. Annnd he's gonna bring it to Anthony Joshua. Should be fun while it lasts. Btw. I wouldn't mind seeing Anthony Joshua defeated here.

Haha, you're right @shakeandbake. Well spotted! Definitely have the wrong Calum Smith listed. Here they have a 2-1 5'9" amateur MMA fighter when the Calum Smith fighting tomorrow is the 6'3" 26-0 WBA & IBF Super Middleweight World Champion.
Just a bit of a difference there eh!

Chris Algieri R8 TKO Tommy Coyle 

Coyle corner pulled him out the fight inbetween rounds as he was starring to take damage. Was a close fight with Coyle almost dropping Algeiri in the 2nd. The better boxing skills of Algieri began to make the difference landing  cleaner shots including a body shot in the 4th that dropped Coyle. Good fight

Also before this fight British Light Heavyweight champion stopped his opponent in 4rounds. For some reason it wasn't listed on here?

Couple really close decisions(some might say robberies?!) back to back 

J Kelly DRAW R Robinson 

K Taylor Majority Decision D Persoons

I thought Kelly did enough to win and Katie was lucky to escape with a win as she was dragged into a dirty, sloppy, draining fight!

Calum Smith up now then it's Joshua against the obesity stricken Mexican!

Calum Smith R3 KO H N'Dam


Smith smoked his boots! Dropped him 1st, 2nd KO in the 3rd.  The Super Middleweight in the world! He wants Canelo at Anfield next summer! Sounds great!

How big an upset is this? Is it up there with Buster Douglas vs Tyson? I'd say so

Bet Wilder is pissed that it wasn't him who done that. He could've made $50 million to do it to!

I knew this would happen! Check out my comment at top of this thread, I called this ****! When there's a mega bucks fight to be made then make it coz there's always a fat Mexican waiting round the corner to knock you out!

@mikey that’s pretty freaking hilarious!!🙄And yeah I think it’s RIGHT up there with Buster Douglas KO of Tyson.. Just seemed bigger then because PPV’s were bigger back then it seems like.. now you can stream fights anywhere.. for practically nothing.. or nothing at all. Used to have to buy that ****, or go to a place a pay a cover. So to me that made the Big Fights back then more of an event. 
Seems weird to me that Joshua didn’t even seemed pissed.., maybe because of rematch clause...??

Yeah I actually think Joshua didn't look right from the moment he got in the ring. Know it's easy saying it after the fact but he didn't seem properly focused, most likely he wasn't worried about Ruiz. You need to fear your opponent a little to be properly dialled in. Welp, that was a BIG MISTAKE! 
Rematch at Wembley in the Autumn I reckon. If Joshua loses the rematch it's over and he goes down as this eras Frank Bruno instead of Lennox Lewis!
WOW How quickly things change in the fight game!
