Our Montreal boy was no match for Saunders. Dancing around Lemieux all night long. Maybe in a smaller ring but even then Billy seemed in a different class for sure.

Good fight tonight in the smaller weight class:

Srisaket Sor Rungvisai vs. Juan Francisco Estrada for Sor Rungvisai's WBC junior bantamweight title!

We last saw Sor Rungvisai brutally KO former pound-for-pound king Chocolatito! This should be a good clash in the smaller weights! Hoping for a Sor Rungvisai KO in the later rounds!

close close fight.....congrats to Sor Rungvisai but Estrada can hold his head up high - that was a battle....

Estrada landed very effective punches - Rungvisai has a head of granite but his face was looking pretty puffy - though Rungvisai's heavy hands do a lot of damage!

Rungvisai has to incorporate the jab more to open up the body and headshots - great main event (whole card was very good) - they should do it again!

great heavyweight clash this Sat Mar.03 - Wilder vs. Oritz!!!

they tried to do this before but Oritz was caught doping (2nd time!) - not sure if he is a doper but c'mon dood.....Wilder has a lot of pent up rage to let out and Oritz is the target!

This should be a good bout however long it lasts - I give the nod to Wilder - younger, fresher and doesn't need to dope!

wow, pretty good scrap between Wilder and Ortiz......looked a bit rough for Wilder but he came back to TKO Ortiz in the 10th! That was pretty fun!

Bring on Joshua vs Wilder already....

watching Kovalev vs Mikhalkin - don't think Mikhalkin has enough to keep Kovalev away....

crap, missed posting this on the thread but Joshua vs Parker was today! Heavyweight clash!!

I would have given the nod to Joshua anyways, Parker didn't show much against Andy Ruiz last time he fought and Joshua vs Klitschko was awesome.....

Bring on Joshua vs Wilder already!!

good heavyweight clash on Saturday - the rematch of Bellew vs Hayes....their first match was entertaining, with Hayes blowing out his Achilles in the match.....I give the nod to Bellew but hoping Hayemaker brings it!!

Honourable mention for the GGG vs Martirosyan bout on the same day - it ain't no GGG vs Canelo that's for sure and to be honest, I don't think this bout should even take place given Martirosyan hasn't fought in a while and moving up in weight....whelp....

Bellew looked good yesterday - took his time, countered beautifully and then really stepped on the gas when Haye was in trouble.

Time for Haye to retire - dood looked old in the ring real quick - probably not the way he wants to go out but the ring don't lie. He isn't quick or explosive and his footwork (possibly his leg that he previously injured) looks shaky.

GGG vs Martirosyan was ever the mis-match as predicted....easy and quick KO by GGG....bring on Canelo!!!


Good match this coming Sat - Linares vs Lomachenko - this should be a good bout!!

Lomachenko vs Linares this Sat at 8pm on ESPN...

Great great match - Lomachenko moving up in weight and is now the smaller, shorter man vs Linares who also has a reach advantage (3") - this should be a very good match. I give the nod to Lomachenko but don't think his power will carry with him against the taller and longer Linares. Close win by decision...

wow - great fight! Loma was on fire but the bigger Linares landed some great shots and combinations...

Awesome liver shot by Loma at the end - Linares face was getting marked up but he never quit....

Loma makes history - wouldn't mind watching them do it again some time in the future...
