Don't all start crying at once. Ye've won both a minor and U21 AI in the last three and a half years.

This fight only confirms that Fury would beat Joshua. Fury schooled klitschko in his own backyard. The amount of disservice shown to that victory is pathetic. Yes fair play to Joshua for getting back up, but his aura is gone.   Wilder is licking his lips and rightly so!

Has anyone here actually seen Wilder? He's woeful.

He's done what he's needed to do and knocked all bar one out. If he hits Joshua, he definitely won't let him off the hook like Wlad and Whyte. It's silly to say he's woeful, yes he is wreckless looking at times but anyone carrying a punch like his is a huge threat, especially to someone who is as easy to hit as Joshua.

Joshua would walk through him. You say Joshua is easy to hit but he's twice the boxer Wilder is - a puncher's chance is no chance at all in most boxing matches. Vlad was able to respond after those hammer blows by Joshua - I don't see Wilder having the experience or indeed the heart to do the same.

If Fury got into proper shape he might give Joshua an ugly, messy scrap. That's the best that's out there past the lad Joshua just beat.

That was a great fight. Joshua has hands like stone and nearly took vlads head off with that uppercut, that punch alone won the fight. Joshua will destroy anyone else. He has shown he has the balls to fight the top guys, yes Vlad is 41 but he was untouchable for 10years. I feel there just wasn't anyone good enough to take him. You also have to remember this lad started boxing at 18, yes 18. Thats a lot of missed learning at youth clubs, junior and school tournaments getting your head pounded. I hope there's a rematch.

Fury beat him 18 months ago.

The uppercut didn't put him down.

He's flawed, which he acknowledges and could get out worked by a crafty fighter like Fury. He could get sparked by a puncher like Wilder. He's doing great for a guy who has had 19 Pro fights bit he's a long way from the finished article.

I don't disagree that wilder could sink him on the chin, but THEY ARE HEAVYWEIGHT BOXERS, by right if any top level fighter connects on the kisser then the fight is over (see haseem rachman). But ffs to say he's flawed I strongly disagree. I for one dislike Eddie Hearn and his mini Murdoch corp but his fighters seem to get a lot of his hate, social media is full already of '' rolly eyes oh sure he only beat a 41 year old'' give the lad some effin credit.

Wilder isn't a threat in the least.

Just never got going today. Fair play to the dubs. Extremely well organised defensively and excellent on Cluxton like kick outs from their keeper. Savage work rate too. We just couldn't move the ball easily on them.  Amazing to think the Galway goal was the first one they've conceded in the entire campaign. We should get a few good players from that group though.
Reape scored in Tuam.

Against Dublin? Some man!

At around 40 in boxing you should be well done if you fighting fighters of yesteryear,  for example who would any shape of the pair  shape against ALi, Holmes, tyson, Foreman, Frazier, Louis at there peaks tonight?

Mayweather, and many others. Boxers are a lot better protected and managed these days and most of the best are still very good between 35-40.

Brilliant fight. AJ is not much of a speaker though. Cliches and waffle. Vlad came across great I thought - very sporting.

I thought Joshua came across great. Doesn't seem like a bollix despite being the most hyped fighter since Tyson.

He beat a 41-year-old who'd been out of the ring for 18 months. Not convinced.

Boxing isn't a sport where you're so far past your best around 40 that you can't be near the top of your sport. Vlad is still probably the second best fighter at heavyweight. Wilder is useless and Parker has fought no one.

Best heavyweight fight in ages and ages. Electric.

Joshua was incredibly naive celebrating after the first knockdown. You just knew a fighter of Vlad's calibur wasn't gonig out that easily. Probably the first time I could say I was able to really appreciate the old man's talent, it's a pity he never had the level of opponent at his peak that could have made his legacy so much more.

Joshua is a true world champion now.

Connolly is gifted. Powerful, direct, two footed. Great eye for a goal. Wonderful point scorer. However for me, he's behind some of the other greats because of his discipline problems. I know he gets treatment, but Canavan, Fitzgerald and Cooper would have been targeted too and never seemed to get the red mist like Connolly. No point being the best player if you're suspended or black carded.

It's the difference between the most talented footballer (even then a question mark with Connolly) and the best footballer. You can make the case for the former but not the later.

The best forward in the game currently is Paul Geaney.

Again, men aren't comparing like with like. Geaney is an out 'n out inside forward, whereas Connolly is not. Geaney may well be the best inside forward in the game at the minute, and Connolly the best half forward. Seems alot on here don't seem to like Connolly on a personal level, hence not rating him as highly as maybe they would otherwise

In fairness Dr Jones said the best current forward and thats his opinion. The hype surrounding Connolly outweighs the so called dislike of him in my view..

Hype from, the media, Dublin fans? What has hype got to do with the man's ability with a football? Can men not form an opinion on a footballer without this hype you speak of being part of the equation?

The same argument Dublin and Kerry lads use when claiming they don't get preferential refereeing decisions. Guess what - people are stupid and easily led.

The most improved county at u21 over the last 10 years. Dublin improve players in the 18-21 bracket like no other county. For those who think that Dublin have a golden generation think again they aren't going away.

Goodbye GAA.

"A half back is more likely to score more than a full forward these days."

I'm not surprised you don't understand the point being made.

No one does.
