Good scraps on Sat night....

Chocolatito was in tough against the Thai box Sor....surprised he lost but it was a tough close fight....they should do an immediate rematch....

GGG was in a tough battle against Jacobs...Jacobs was the bigger fighter, tho he did get knocked down in the 4th.....GGG won, but it wasn't easy.

Up next for GGG, either Canelo or Billy Joe....most likely Billy Joe if Billy will fight....Canelo won't be ready with his pending fight against Chavez Jr...

Good heavyweight fight tomorrow - Joshua vs Klitschko!!

Young up-and-coming vs. veteran cagey lion - who shall win??

Hard to predict, toss up for me but slight edge to Joshua if Klitschko looks as old and unable to pull the trigger like he did in his last fight against Fury...plus Klitschko has been inactive for a while....hard for older fighters to rebound from inactivity...

Should be a great fight. I also agree the age, style of Joshua and Klitschko's inactivity will be key factors. On the other hand Joshua has not faced anyone even close to Klitschko. Can experience overcome youth? Joshua is a favorite 2:1 to win this fight and I think he will send Wlad to retirement!

wow, great great fight.....plenty of action and ebbs and flows.....Klitschko almost came through!!

Congrats to AJ !!- though Klitschko showed the heart of a lion (both did actually!!) - I think an immediate rematch would be great!!

Or they can go both go and take different fights and come back to do it again.....in any case, the heavyweight division is exciting again with a new young face leading the charge!

Fight delivered even better than Ward vs Kovalev. Revenge in Germany would be great!

Canelo vs Chavez Jr this Sat!! Interesting fight but Chavez is lazy and doesn't train....I see Canelo hammering Chavez for many rounds and possibly making Chavez quit......

good undercard too with David Lemieux vs Reyes and the return of Lucas Matthysse (vs. Emmanuel Taylor)

just as expected - Canelo hammers Chavez Jr for 12 full rounds....lol, only saving grace is that Chavez Jr made weight and lasted the entire 12 rds (didn't quit).....

Apple has fallen far from the tree in this one - I expect Chavez Jr to be a stepping stone for up-and-comers who need a big name on their resume or fighters at cross-roads that need a big name to kickstart their path to the championship....if Chavez Jr fights again...

The real winner are the fans!!! With the GGG vs Canelo showdown a done deal to happen in September!! Can't wait!

Congrats to Lemieux on a hard fought victory against Reyes - Reyes was a very game opponent that wouldn't go away and the return of the Machine!

Lucas looked good in his return - welcome back!!

good welterweight fight today....Brook vs Spence Jr!

Hard to predict the winner - I give the nod to Brook given his experience and going against GGG but Spence is a hungry younger fighter....longer reach as well which might cause problems for Brook
