Starting soon. Usyk fav, obviously, but Briedis is no pushover. If Briedis can go the distance the 12/1 at the bookies for Briedis on points might be worth a trade, especially in Briedis' home town of Riga. Usyk is very strong, and I do expect him to win, but there might be some value in Briedis on points.

Latvian superstar, Aljona Ostapenko, also known as "big Osty" is ringside.

Should tip the scales in favour of Briedis.
Report Des Pond January 27, 2018 10:30 PM GMT
Usyk is a beast though, strong favourite
Report n88uk January 27, 2018 10:34 PM GMT
That was pure trolling if it wasn't obvious lol.

But Usyk isn't looking too hot so far.
Report Des Pond January 27, 2018 10:38 PM GMT
Briedis going for it, and doing well.
Report Des Pond January 27, 2018 10:45 PM GMT
Yes. I wondered about the comment, N88. I'm a bit slow. :)
Report Des Pond January 27, 2018 10:46 PM GMT
Briedis has a chance, though. pe fight odds were a bit low.
Report Des Pond January 27, 2018 10:57 PM GMT
good fight.
Report Des Pond January 27, 2018 11:03 PM GMT
few bob on the draw, could be a bit of home cooking. Though Briedis has done well anyway.

I have Usyk landing more, and quicker, but with Briedis at home, who knows?
Report Des Pond January 27, 2018 11:09 PM GMT
Got a good trade, Briedis could get it.
Report wisewords January 27, 2018 11:10 PM GMT
this could end up a draw with 3 judges, then the 4th judge could give it to Usyk. this would be settled as a draw on BF.
Report n88uk January 27, 2018 11:10 PM GMT
I think Usyk probably won.
Report n88uk January 27, 2018 11:11 PM GMT
Well should have to my eye I mean, not nec on the cards, Osty might have bribed the judge she's sitting behind.

Usyk just got backed in from 1.28 to 1.12

A draw or Briedis win will do me.

115-113

winner by majority................. Usyk!
Report n88uk January 27, 2018 11:14 PM GMT
Funnily enough those 115-113 cards is exactly how I think I'd scored it my rather loosely scoring of it.
Report Des Pond January 27, 2018 11:15 PM GMT
probably the right decision, but it was close.

is it on TV Des?

I'm not sure, WW.

Box Nation perhaps. is it on the same card as Linares?
Report Des Pond January 27, 2018 11:27 PM GMT
It's HBO, maybe find a stream. Linares is on too.
Report wisewords January 27, 2018 11:30 PM GMT
yeah it's on BoxNation. cheers Des
Report Des Pond January 27, 2018 11:31 PM GMT
Yes, same card. I don't have Boxnation, but I'll get a stream, probably.
Report Des Pond January 27, 2018 11:35 PM GMT
Matthysse has plenty of power, but how much have the wars taken out of him? The Thai is a bit slow, but he looks strong as feck and he has a good jab. Legs like tree trunks. He's never fought anyone in Matthysse's class, and never out of Thailand, but the same could be said for Rungvisai last year. I think I'll chuck a few bob at him and hope for the best.
Report Des Pond January 28, 2018 2:41 AM GMT
Easy opponent for Linares, might even stop him.
Report Des Pond January 28, 2018 2:46 AM GMT
Breidis Prescott on now. Remember him? :)

Not a bad fight. I've got Lopez ahead.

This should be very straight forward for Linares.

Gesta not doing too badly so far.

Gesta can take a punch. Not that Linares has much power.

Linares comfortably in front, but Gesta has put up a fight.

Wide UD for Linares.

Matthysse finding it hard going, but he is winning, imo.
