watched price quit against the russian claiming an arm injury and he was saved by the ref with a dq when kash ali bit him on the tit, he was gassed both times against those bums and they would have sparked him within a couple more rounds. he can knock anyone out but is now just a ko waiting to happen, allen has minimal skill but is durable and punches, price will gas early again and fall over by 6

Joyce is fighting tonight against a 42yo 6'8" punchbag who got dropped and stopped by Michael Hunter who is not that big or good, it is probably over within 4. On the same card as Saunders who is fighting a nobody muppet. On BT1.

Funnily, Nigel Benn's other son Harley, who is trying to cash in on his dad's name and had so far won all 6 of his fights against such poor opponents their combined records are 16 wins, 123 losses and 5 draws, has just been beaten on the undercard by his 7th opponent who had lost all 16 of his paid for fights so far. It is a very poor card of fights, only worth tuning in for the Joyce KO.

Will be watching the Wilder-Breazeale fight later mainly in hope of a shock though Breazeale looked quite poor in his last and should be stopped. Don't know how many darts players there are with the same name but there are 3 Gary Russells on the Wilder undercard..

Looking forward to the fight tomorrow but far to late for me so will Sky+ and watch later tomorrow morning before going to work at 10am. Would be a huge shock if anything other than a knock out for Wilder.

Will be switching between the Josh Taylor fight on Sky and Saunders on BT Sport tonight.

Have been to the Hydro for the darts on numerous occasions, so pretty sure the atmosphere for Josh will be absolutely,utely electric.

Saunders is fighting a nobody for nothing, soon as Joyce finishes it's the Taylor/Inoue fights which are both quality and I would not be surprised if there is an upset in those two

Inoue was immense. Have to say tonight will tell us if Taylor is going to be the next Scottish superstar, but the fighter from Belarus looks an absolute beast.

After 5 rounds Taylor definitely behind. Too many shots missing, but Josh's body shots are hurting Barynchak.

Edit- 6th Round completely changed the dynamic of the fight. Josh can win this by stoppage over the next couple of rounds.

Thought it was a lot closer fight than the judges scored it.

Clearly judging by his interview, Josh disagrees with my view and comes across as a very confident individual.

Roll on his final in the Super Series.

Agree with that, the russian's punches were not as powerful but they were scoring punches and after the fifth thought Taylor could be in bother but he has a solid chin, stamina and can throw punches from anywhere, he's good enough to win many world title fights but Loma next would be too much

All 3 Gary Russells won, and Wilder showed he can be hurt but I don't think AJ really wants to go anywhere near him, nor Fury again, he is so fast he will hit them and they will fall, they will avoid each other as they each have lucrative contracts so the contenders will all get a chance to earn good money
