What an 11th round for Ryder.

By far the stronger fighter going into the final round, and think Smith is there for the taking.

Right AJ rematch, I ain't paying 25 quid for starters, and I think he will do a Lewis and win his titles back comfortably hopefully finally setting up a fight with the winner of Tyson n Wilder

Smith was awful against Ryder, I had it to Ryder by 2 rounds.

I haven't paid for any PPV boxing since it jumped from £11.95 years ago. End up at brothers now who orders once pissed. Seen an article a few days ago saying they regularly get around 250k viewers now.

Reason I stopped was it use to be sensible price for big fights. Tyson v Holyfield, Lewis v Tyson, Bruno v Lewis etc, now it seems as soon as a fighter has a decent profile every fight is on ppv even when fighting 1000/1 shots.

Joshua will breezez past the tub of lard in 3 rounds, Fury will beat the windmill Wilder then a huge UK fight to unify the heavyweight division.
Thinking of one.

I used to buy every PPV card, and in all fairness, thought they were good value for money, however think the last one I paid for was the Parker vs Joshua one, and was hugely disappointed with the card.

Looking forward to the Joshua vs Ruiz rematch on Saturday, and will be watching the DAZN coverage for free on my tablet, whilst sipping copious amounts of alcohol in the hotel bar in the West Indies. Think the fight starts at 5pm local time in St Lucia.

Expect Joshua to win, and revenge his MSG loss, but think Ruiz will catch him at some point in the fight, so a 7 or 8 round knockout for Anthony is my Prediction.

Pretty easy win for Joshua. What a long drawn out, over-hyped affair boxing is these days.

Agree,I've read manic comments like AJ put on a masterclass of boxing, bs, I know in any sports at the end of the day a wins a win but I don't think he's came out of these 2 fights well at all, if he doesn't get the winner or both at some point of Fury Wilder then I believe it's him not taking the fights on thru fear

Considering the risk to his career he did what he had to do and keep at literally arms length. What else did people expect after the mistakes of the first fight. I'm sure he will loosen up next time.
Not that I think he could beat Fury though. And I'm sure Wilder would find a way through once (which is all he needs).

Boring fight, glad I didn’t weigh out a pony to watch it
But that’s boxing, no different to many other fights over the years, Lewis v Tua was no different.
I’m very selective about which events to pay to watch this was never going to be one of them.
Never paid to watch Mayweather fight either, boring load of rubbish.
