Some good matches yesterday, but Delfine Persoon was robbed by the judges.

Hopefully we get to see more of the top guys meeting each other now. Too many of them only have one loss.

Watching casuals call Ruiz Jr. a chump leading up to this fight was just sad. Yeah he's a little flabby, but he's also a heavyweight with lightning fast hands and has never been stopped, with a record of 32-1 (33-1 now, obviously). People are fucking stupid. Sometimes fatties can bang. It's a thing.

:lol: I mean, it's free entertainment. Why are you such a gatekeeping douche about absolutely everything?

I will always care about the heavyweight division in boxing. I only wish the best had more matches against each other. All in all, it’s still better now than during the Klitschko years.

The heavyweight division hasn't been good since the late '70s.

Not even remotely true. However, I did see the HBO Ali documentary yesterday. It was great.

It's absolutely true.

Holmes was mediocre at best, Tyson dominated because he had nobody to fight, then after he got out of prison couldn't beat the likes of Holyfield and Lennox, then the Klitschko years.

I mean have you guys actually seen Fury, Wilder and Joshua fight? They are so unskilled, it's remarkable. All three of them look like club fighters, not true professionals.

Why would ESPN being showing a replay of the Pac-Mayweather fight?

Trying to put their viewers to sleep?

Looking forward to the Pac-Thurman fight next weekend.

Regardless of the outcome, Pac should retire for good.

Dominant performance by Pac.

Maybe he shouldn't retire.

Re-watched the fight today.

I don't see how ANYBODY could see Thurman even remotely winning it.

I think the 115-112 on the other two scorecards is even kinda ridiculous.
