That Joshua vs Parker fight sucked. Glad it was not on pay per view. The intros which took 20 minutes were more exciting than the fight.

Wilder vs Ortiz was a lot more exciting.

Canelo withdraws from the rematch and fight is cancelled. Accuses GGG of being scared to fight him. I call bullshit as GGG beat his ass in the first fight.

Fuuuuuuuuck.

That Fury/Wilder fight was one of the most amazing fights I've ever seen. I have no earthly idea how Fury got up in the 12th. He was out COLD. EVERYONE (including me) thought it was over. It was like someone gave him a shot of adrenaline directly into his heart Pulp Fiction style. He just rose up like a zombie. Even the rounds that didn't have a lot of action were interesting. The way Fury just slowly picked Wilder apart, and then started to really pick up steam in the last 4 rounds with his jab and combinations, only to have Wilder clean his clock twice. Amazing fight. I thought Fury was the clear winner. How ANYONE could score that fight 115-111 for Wilder blows my mind. I have to agree with Paulie's off the cuff assessment after the fight. But I'm not too bummed because it was an amazing fight. Looking forward to the rematch. I loved how both guys chirped AJ after the fight. It feels like it'll be awhile before Joshua sees either of these guys in a boxing ring. Anyhow, its fights like this that make me want to be more of a boxing fan than I've been in the past few years.

Re: The Official Boxing Thread

The heavyweight division has been fantastic since the Klitsch boys hung it up to be honest, it was boring for a years with their dominance. I can't wait for AJ vs whoever, I had wanted it vs Wilder, but if Fury can continue to bring it, bring it on!
