    Looks like AJ Wilder is happening.
    I wonder if it's going to be a knockout tournament like the super six series. They were very good, Usyk win the cruiserweight one,Callum Smith won super middleweight. Andre Ward won the middleweight. They had some quality fights.
    There's no easy fights and they have to be on their game.

    Dubois was robbed there. No way was that punch below the belt.

    I thought the camera view showed a poor view catching the end of the blow.My view the punch came up under the belt with most of the glove on the belt but part of the glove under the belt.
    It looked to me as the glove glanced off the top of the cup before hitting the belt.

    I think it's on the beltline, below naval area so low blow for me.

    Liam Smith got his arse handed to him last night by Eubank jr from start to finish.
    He looked very leggy and never got going at all were as Eubank looked very good.
    His ankles were giving way a few times which was strange.

    I was surprised, I had Smith for a repeat of the last one but Eubank Jr was dominant. Maybe Smith got complacent?
    Difficult to see Smith going anywhere now whereas Eubank Jr can carry on, especially if he can keep up that type of form.

    Very casual follower here so bear that in mind but I imagine the drop in weight having had the previous injury was a problem - all his punches seemed to lack elasticity/snap and he looked sluggish and that was before getting caught in the fourth(?) round.

    I wonder if he had the time to cut the weight at a more gradual pace if he would have performed better.

    With Boxing I am just more annoyed than anything about an Usyk v Fury fight not happening. Seems wild to me. I get they can easily organise other fights and get mega-money but there must come a stage where you have enough and legacy matters more?
