Fury and Wilder would do well to tone down the ridiculous McGregor Mayweather style nonsense in their press conferences. Its all a bit embarrassing and is beginning to put me off actually bothering to watch the fight.

At least McGregor usually means it.  Fury and Wilder are actually friendly enough off camera but are putting on the act just for the hype.

What does McGregor actually mean? He's all smiles and hugs after every fight.

Canelo signs 5 year, 11 fight contract with DAZN. $365m.

Biggest contract in sports history.

Jason Quigley wins last night to take his record to 15-0. Unanimous but tight going apparently. Would love to see Quigley get a shot at the world title, comes across as a top bloke

Full fight to watch later (or now if you work in the public sector)

He has had bad luck with injuries so hasn't really got fighting regularly, hopefully that changes.

Just saw a picture of these two together and the size difference is huge.  Now obviously i expect Canelo to win this but surely his future cannot lie at that weight division.

If you believe reports Alvarez he can rehydrate to anything from 180-200 pounds for fight night.

Tickets for the Frampton fight are going slowly.
Would expect them to have to add someone to the card.

What about Conlan?

Surely that's due to the date of the fight. Too close to Christmas for most

No doubt itís due to the date. Doesnít mean they donít have to add someone to the bill increase ticket sales

In perhaps the strangest announcement in a long time, Floyd Mayweather is set to fight a 20 year old Japanese kickboxing potential superstar in the Rizin Fighting Federation in Saitama on New Year's Eve. Rules, weight, money etc completely up in the air. Mental.

Has to be having money problems...there's no reason for him to do this at his age
Chicago -> Milwaukee -> Galway

I see in reports that the weights are to be decided in the coming weeks but from the picture of the two together Mayweather is twice his size

Tough way to lose for Burnett at the weekend. Freak injury. He was boxing well at the time too and i would have expected him to go through to the next stage of the tournament. Unfortunate.
