GGG vs CANELO rematch due in May. However Canelo fails a drug test for a steroid 'believed' to come from tainted meat in his native Mexico. Lol.   I've eaten burgers from Gosport and a van on Portsdown Hill and I've never gained any muscle mass from those.

Bradley Wiggins unavailable for comment.

Canelo and Wiggins both guilty as sin as far as I'm concerned. Rematch is going ahead as planned though apparantley.

Eubank was embarrasingly bad, and is at a real crossroads now. Perhaps not good enough for World level?

Wilder showed he can dig deep against Ortiz, but more evidence that he shouldn't trouble AJ for me. Too much wildness in his style and could easily have been stopped.

Kell Brook looked good. Got to be looking for that Khan fight now. It's now or never!

Scott Quigg has blown his World Title opportinity by weighing 2 lbs over the weight limit.

So bizarre. Moves to the US, takes on Freddie Roach as trainer to chase his world title dream, then doesn't hit the weight limit?

Personally I'm of the opinion that there should be a suspension of sorts in these situations.

AJ v Parker is upon us.

 

Whyte's win over Brown was impressive, so I'm thinking we might see Wilder v Whyte or AJ v Whyte 2 next. Although for me, as long as AJ deals with Parker it should be AJ v Wilder next. Then the winner of that to fight Tyson Fury.

Heayweight boxing has an embarrasment of riches at the moment. Let's hope promoters/greed doesn't rob us of some epic fights!

 True. Heavyweight boxing has certainly got a lot more interesting.   That said compare it to the 1970's era and  the current bunch look distinctly average.
