He's so good. The footwork slipping out to his right away from Walters right hand from 5-7 was amazing to watch.

Walters getting completely schooled but still think it's a bit odd that he just gave up.

I'm extremely serious. The hypejob will take his 2nd career loss already.

War Axeman.



U ok, brah? Here's Vasyl's reaction to your "War Axeman" shout...

Loma's a genius. I've watched that 7th round five times already, I'll likely continue to watch it over and over again as well. Most talented boxer I've ever seen. Let him fight next and every week please.

Put the straw away ffs :lol:

Was a close fight. Axeman deserves an immediate rematch.

Can understand Walters being frustrated but when you're taking a huge sum of cash from ticket and TV sales then you've a duty to put on a spectacle- even if it is you taking a beating. He wasn't in any immediate danger to his health, only his pride- he should have went out on his shield.

Loma's in a brilliant division, not just stacked but stacked with people willing to fight anyone. Vargas/Muira/Corrales/Uchiyama/Pedraza or the Salida rematch.

Personally hate the shouts for a Manny-Loma fight though, there's 3 weight classes between them. Maybe if Loma went up to 135 and beat Linares or Flanagan but don't see the point in rushing away from such a stacked division.

Pretty much punch perfect boxing lesson from Lomachenko. Walters didn't have a clue how to approach handling him.

Anyone in that gym - licensed / making a living from boxing, or otherwise - that let Nick Blackwell put gloves on and let him do anything other than hit a bag, should be given lifetime bans and barred from any form of boxing event forever more. Utterly disgusting that the lad could be allowed access to a ring after what happened to him. Fingers crossed he's ok!




Agreed but Blackwell also has to take responsibility for his own actions. He is a grown adult after all.

Some folk need saving from themselves, though. If you're familiar with cyclist Riccardo Ricco, you'll know what I'm talking about.

I don't think Lomachenko is in a very strong division for him tbh.  There's a lot of come forward/pressure fighters there but we don't need to see that style of match up again. Walters was probably the best competition there and he said no mas. 

On the other hand the talk of Pacquiao/Crawford being pushed so hard by HBO is about as disgusting as the recent Alvarez/Khan and Golovkin/Brook fights.  I'm not sure where he goes from here in the immediate future maybe reign supreme for a while in a division that not many casuals really care about and HBO/Top Rank won't want that.

Blackwell reported to have been seeking an Irish licence, whilst sparring behind the back of his trainer. He's now back in a coma.

I'm certainly no expert when it comes to boxing licensing far from it in fact but surely he had absolutely no chance of getting a licence in any civilised society.

Seeing Hearn is looking to put Brook vs Errol Spence on PPV in early 2017.


Will need to have a good undercard because Brook doesn't have enough popularity amongst your typical casual fan I wouldn't think.

Unfortunately there's nearly always somewhere that will sanction fights.
