A much anticipated domestic dust-up between these "bitter rivals" set up for July 8 in Glasgow. Not yet convinced about either of these 2, tbh. But there seems to be a bit of needle between them, and a lot of British fans are very excited about the fight. I have my own ideas about who will win this one, but I'll wait until I see the prices before commenting. Happy

Looking forward to this one, and will be having a hefty bet. I think it's on Channel 5 too. Happy
Report wisewords July 3, 2017 11:00 PM BST
which way, Des? I'm tempted to lump on Ohara because when I watched Taylor fight in the US he was very average. But I don't really know enough about either fighter to be betting heavy tbh.
Report Des Pond July 3, 2017 11:48 PM BST
Davis by stoppage. Got 4/1 a few weeks ago. Might have a trade on the night, as well, depending on how "Live" the coverage is. Taylor does the better work on the inside, moves well and has a good jab. So, I think he will probably look good for a few rounds and build up a lead, and will be fancied to get a decision in his home country. However, although Davis is awkward, tends to over-reach and has poor footwork, I think he will have too much power for Taylor, and will stop him in the second half of the fight.

Davies, sorry. Spelt his name wrong. Must have been thinking about that snooker match 30-odd years ago. Grin

different.The way he speaks is the way everyone speaks that way.

good right from Williams, smyle took it well, though.
Report Des Pond July 8, 2017 7:34 PM BST
Not a bad fight, this. Smyle slightly ahead, but I think Williams will wear him down, eventually.
Report Des Pond July 8, 2017 7:49 PM BST
Another close round, Either man could take it with a strong last round. Williams is stronger, but Smyle still boxing well.

Smyle could have nicked it, but Draw a possibility.

Ah well, Dubois knocked him down with the 1st punch of the fight, but somehow his opponent survived the 1st round. Worth a punt though.

Report Des Pond July 8, 2017 9:46 PM BST
That's my idea of how it will go, but you never know in boxing. Taylor is the slicker of the two. Davies is very awkward and has poor footwork, but he has a lot of power and Taylor has never fought beyond 8 rounds, and never against an opponent as tough as Davies. A lot of people think that taylor will win on points, and it is certainly possible, but for me Davies has the power to stop him.

Corcoran got a lucky decision, Williams got the nod against Smyle, Dubois won in the 2nd, Skeete got an easy points win, and I missed the Yarde fight, but presume he won easily enough.
