Worst summer ever.

Wilder - Povetkin cancelled

Fury - Klitscko cancelled

No Pacquiao fight

No Mayweather fight (I guess Mayweather never fought in the summer anyway for some reason)

No Golovkin fight until september

Ward is fighting some clown from Colombia :jetbad

Kovalev is fighting the guy who lost to Bellew :jetbad

I like the Canelo - Liam Smith match-up. Liam Smith is a slugger.

We still get Leo Santa Cruz vs. Carl Frampton on 7/30 and Crawford vs. Postol on 7/23. Pretty good match-ups for the month.

Did you hear about the demands team Eubank were asking for the Golovkin fight? They wanted to select specific commentators and set the ticket prices :heston

I had a read before :lmao

Jnr really does need to tell his Dad to get fucked. I liked the guy as a fighter but nowadays he really is a first class cunt. I seen a video a bit back when Jnr was doing some sparring and pad work at Floyds gym in Vegas and Snr is embarrassing. He wont be told anything at all.He was mouthing off about how Jnr would beat GGG and every body in the gym were taking the piss big time. Snr was totally oblivious. Its cringe at its maximum

I'm actually more impressed with Kovalev now. He had a bad night, with a bad match-up for him and was still able to adjust and knocked down his opponent in round 7. He kind of woke up and took command of the ring.

Just found out on ESPN..

Pacquiao comes out of retirement after 3 months lolz. He's set to either fight either October 28 or November 5. No shock me he came out of retirement he's good enough to fight to 40 if he wants to. Hell Bernard Hopkins fought past 40 and was a smart, and quality fighter. The tank is still fill and I like to like to see him fight either Crawford or Thurman both can KO a Boxer just like that.

Out of them two Thurman is the much better match up for Manny. Pacman could dominate with his speed and combinations and i reckon in could be a pretty comfortable nights work. Not convinced by Keith at all really. Crawford on the other hand would give Manny all sorts of problems. The guy is lightning quick and has a great chin. Every time i have seen him fight i have been impressed

Yup Crawford is a tough challenge for anyone, but Pacman is not the type of guy to run away from tough opponents. That spirit goes back to his days facing Morales, Barrera and Marquez no fear in his mind. Either way glad he's back, I'm sure he'll find a good opponent that everyone would want to see with Manny.

It needs to be a world class opponent who poses a threat to Manny Pacquiao otherwise Bob Arum will end up having another PPV flop on his hands. Terence Crawford and Danny Garcia would certainly be intriguing match ups.

I am a little surprised Top Rank & Golden Boy haven't attempted to make Pac vs. Canelo yet. That's probably one of the few big fights left in boxing that could generate a lot buzz and excitement with casual fans.

EDIT - LOL at Adrien Broner out pricing himself :heston

And I wonder if Kell Brook now regrets taking that Gennady Golovkin fight :hmm: If he had just waited a couple days Kell probably would of been in with a shout of landing this fight.
