How'd Michael Conlon do?
Conlon did fine. His Aussie opponent had a reputation as a come-forward fighter, which they were hoping for, but he ended up being very defensive. Conlon was calm, composed, patient. Finally pinned him down in the 3rd, hit him a beaut of a bodyshot, and the ref jumped in fairly early to save the Aussie from getting some real punishment.

Job done. Probably the best of his 3 performances to date.

Another fight where he will gain experience, seemed a bit naive when the aussie stopped defending himself and instead of fighting on he looked to the ref, which he shouldn't have done.  Good lesson learnt.

Josh Taylor several levels above Davies. Very impressive performance.

Probably Eubank on points. Cacace fighting too although I'm wondering if I've missed it. Davies Jr on at the minute.

Eubank very impressive tonight but wasn't able to get the KO... This super series sounds very interesting does anyone know why DeGale isn't in it??

He needs surgery, dunno why the Mexican champion is not in though. Eubank is one that has annoyed me for years, as IMO he has it all but has stalled. Exciting times ahead.

Frampton misses weight by 1lb for tomorrow night - fight still going ahead - loses eliminator status though

Yeah bad craic, something wrong there... very unprofessional, surely over the last few days they'd have known he was struggling to make weight??

Not good at featherweight. Suggests taking this very lightly or else struggling with the weight, which would be a big worry as he's not big enough for super feather.

Yeah lightly was one view I took on it... been very negative lately about retiring if he didn't win... he'd have been I'd say at least 4 pounds over leading up to this week... he's never had this problem before

I'm in London at the minute, there's a full wraparound cover on the main London paper The Evening Standard promoting the fight. I was quite surprised as I didn't Frampton would be a name over here..
