Joshua was gassed and bottled it there, wouldn't come out the corner, fair stoppage, he looked a numpty and eddie has fucked up there big time. Ruiz has won the jackpot tonight but there will probably be an auto rematch at Wembley in the contract.

Ruiz showing speed is power, a win for fat people everywhere, shock of the century, chuffed for the Mexican, Jarrell Miller will probably top himself

Joshua's trainer has to ask himself how Ruiz held the centre of the ring for most of the fight considering the size and reach difference and they've got six months to work it out, Dillian Whyte will be punching the walls turning down the fight over money, hard to come back when you've been decked four times in one fight by a fat boy, his chin will finish him now, just realised I lost a bet, don't mind

I agree, they all deserve that and the hearns will be shitting themselves now, just because they have a rematch clause doesn't mean they'll get one and they have to deal with Al Haymon who will want a ton of cash or Ruiz will fight someone else. Not just swerving the right fights but up till last night AJ had fought once in the past 12mths, they really do take the piss these days.

Good upset tho, didn't think it would happen. Over to Dubois next.

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
Still have a gut feeling that Price will knock White out. Have been looking forward to this fight for months and had a modest bet on Price at 5/2 a couple of weeks ago..

Fantastic win for David Price. Clearly something wrong with White at the end, but Price a well deserved winner.

Very accomplished performance from Dillian Whyte.

Still going strong into the 12th round and looks like a great win against a decent opponent.

I thought whyte was off a bit, seems he was just juiced up and down, be surprised if there's not plenty of lawsuits to come, can't imagine uncle barry would have done that

allen's tactics were rubbish, he should have swarmed price and he would have gassed easy, standing off made price look half good and he should get a decent payday out of it if a name wants an easy night

Great night of sport. Got the World Trophy on the TV, Euro Tour on the laptop, and Povetkin vs Fury on the tablet. For me think Povetkin will knock Fury out tonight.

Looking forward to the Lomachenko vs Campbell fight, and hoping Luke can give a good account of himself against probably the best pound for pound fighter on the planet.

Povetkin breathing really heavily before the start of the 7th round. Is he feeling his 39 years of age, or can he dig deep and find the shot which will knock Fury out?

Watching the fight on the Top Rank/ Espn coverage and the commentary is spot on.

American commentators convinced Fury winning the fight. Been watching the World Trophy and Euro Tour at the same time so a little distracted, but thought it was pretty close.

Having come from the amateurs with a 396-1 record, fighting for a World title in his 2nd professional fight and 3 weight World Champion in his 12th pro fight, Vasyl Lomachenko is already one of the best boxers in the history of the sport. That being said, will be supporting Luke Campbell tonight, and you never know.

Remember watching Lloyd Honeyghan beating Don Curry in what was a major upset, but Campbell winning tonight would for me be the greatest ever win by a British boxer.
