Boxing please

Surely you gotta try and punch during a boxing match, AJ hasn't done much so far.
Finally hit a decent right hand there.
Usyk still ahead
 
AJ needs to do more !!

People who've watched enough of AJ and Usyk knew Usyk was by far the better boxer, AJ is a stiff robot who only has power in his favour.

Usyk is a machine and comfortably beat AJ tonight.

Unified cruiser and now heavyweight champ, guy travels to everyones back yard and beats them....fair play.
 
Usyk did what he needed to do. AJs corner telling him he was up by 3 rounds. Lolz. Someone's getting sacked.

He needs to stop the apollo creed style ring walks. Just focus on the job in hand.

Still.. win the rematch and he'll be compared to Lennox.
 
He has to wait for Wilder to lose, then beat him which is 50-50 since they're both reliant on their hail mary right hands. Then the money and just about plausible hype will be enough to get the fury fight made. But if he goes for a rematch in the deluded belief that he'll win the titles back, he'll get knocked out and then the fury fight will end up happening on triller in ten years time for a fraction of the monies. Probably on the undercard of a jake paul fight.
 
Lewis got caught with a punch from back when even low level heavyweights were terrifying. Joshua got the shit beat out of him twice, because both times he was totally out of his depth and levels below his opponent. But do continue pretending it's comparable. Did you go woke or something? What happened?

Last night wasn't a beating. Usyk out boxed him. But if Usyk went for the knockout there was every chance Joshua could have caught him flush. As I said originally I had it 7-5 Ruiz could understand the 8-4 scorecard too.

Edit - I will say that Usyk could probably have gone up a gear too. It was a controlled performance.

Joshua avenged his defeat to Ruiz in a similar style to how Usyk just handled Joshua.

But ok. Do continue to ignore good things Joshua has done.

I'm not ignoring the good things, I'm ignoring your comparison to Lennox, because one is a pretty weak boxer who has been exposed by and struggled against far too many fighters. I'm not complaining, it makes his fights generally good to watch and he has used his power to rescue himself and win the belts and the monies so he isn't complaining either. But I don't get how you can even remotely compare him to one of the best heavyweights there's ever been. You're insane.
 
I enjoyed the fight but I had Usyk to win with a KO at 6/1, so seeing that they stopped the fight five seconds early has pissed me off.
 
Joshua was shockingly bad last night......He hardly threw a meaningful punch.

I'm still in shock that his game plan was to try to actually outbox Uysk!
 
Yeah I kept expecting him to start throwing haymakers after about round six when I thought Usyk might stop dancing round (but he didn't). Usyk was really impressive, he didn't give Joshua many opportunities and just out moved him from start to finish.
 
Rob McCracken didn't help I don't think either.....Kept telling Joshua to wait for Uysk to come in ffs

On a side note, did anyone watch Hattons lad fight?......Hatton could have been knocked out and he would have still been given the victory
 
Think this fight confirmed, to me anyway, and that is AJ is not a warrier. he hasn't got a nasty bone in his body. Been a few, Bugner, Harrison, few others. They fight at length, dance around, they don't or won't risk a toe to toe real battle. Their lucky Mike Tyson isn't around.

I expected this from AJ. He wants to walk away from boxing a rich man but with his faculties all in tact. Don't blame him but bound to catch up with him and it has..more than once.
 
The downfall of Joshua is great, overhyped in the media and by those who ignored the fact that he largely beat absolute plodders on his rise. Had his ass handed to him multiple times now. Done & dusted and ready for a career on A League of Their Own.
 
I'm bored with boxing. The only boxers worth watching recently for me were Golovkin and Lomachenko. Golovkin's career is pretty much over ever since he got cheated in that first Canelo bout. Lomachenko had one meaningful fight with Teofimo Lopez, which Lopez won to be fair. But in the old days, we'd have seen a rematch or two of that. Instead they're both off fighting some non entities. What's really the point? The best rarely fight the best, and when they do, they take years dodging each other and negotiating the rematch.
 
The other interesting fight really worth watching would have been Errol Spence v Terence Crawford, but Spence was in that car crash, which has stalled his career.
 
Just watched the rerun. AJ just didn't mount one sustained attack throughout the fight.

His jabs were powder puff. His right hand punch was deliverd without any forward body movement. You try swinging a golf club without body movement and the ball goes only half way. Something not quite right about that fight.

I have strong suspicions about pro boxing.
