Anyone watching?

Dubois was pretty impressive there, stopping Darch in the 2nd round.

Yarde up next. Funny entrance with Lethal Bizzle rapping him out.

He's pretty good, but not top level. He's only been beaten by world level fighters, jacobs, Dirrell and a pretty shot Jermain Taylor.

yeah hence me saying DeGale will stop Truax. DeGale is a good boxer, but not very likeable because he's arrogant

Report Des Pond December 9, 2017 10:10 PM GMT
1/2 sounds good to me for Degale to stop him, but Degale sometimes sleepwalks through a fight if he's not under pressure
Report Des Pond December 9, 2017 10:20 PM GMT
Degale been out for almost a year, and coming back from injury, so who knows what sort of energy levels he's got just now. Sometimes he can be a bit lazy as well.

I said a few months ago that Eubank Jnr would bet Degale and Groves. I still stand by that. If Degale ever steps in the ring with Eubank he will get spanked. I think Eubank will beat Groves as well.

Report n88uk December 10, 2017 2:23 AM GMT
DeGale can end up pretty stuffed here. He's totally reliant on Haymon giving him a rematch out of good will, he always goes on about being close with Haymon so now we will see, because on face of it hard to see Haymon caring about DeGale when I assume he has better American prospects to feed this belt to instead.

DeGale has no real fanbase so the market worth for a rematch is rather low, and no promoter to invest and put up loads of money for the rematch either. So not going to be easy when Truax will probably want 10x the money he got tonight for a rematch.

Is a good shout, I thought he started 1.02 here tbh, and you only really get real knockover jobs start @ 1.02 here, I can't really remember a 1.02 ever losing off the top of my head.

Khan was 1.08 vs Prescott is shortest I can think of immediately.

Cotto was 1.12 here last week Wisewords.
