Basically 2 blokes of similar weight stand opposite one another and using their closed fists attempt to strike one another with punches.

All punches must land above the belt line or be deemed a foul.

To win the fight you either knock your opponent unconscious, batter your opponent at a furious rate the ref steps in and stops it or if the fight goes the distance have landed more punches than your opponent to win on the judges scorecards.

Hope that helps you out Jeterpool

FWIW i dont get the Mundine hate.
Bloke is all for the cameras and the coin. he does a good job of hyping up a sport that only survives on hype.
If he gooses himself hes got to live with it. Taking him seriously makes people look just as silly.
WWE/Pantomime at its finest.
Dont care who wins. Wont watch.

Remember a few years ago most people sayin he had no chance against Green then made him look ordinary. Think he'll have to knock Geale out, don't think he can win on points in this one. Unfortunately for Anthony he's starting to sound a little like Ali when health started gettin the better of him.Agree though he plays the hatred card to get the cash. :sparring:

That is defo a pro for UFC.

Nearly all boxing fights as soon as one bloke establishes superiority over another it is 99.9% a one way procession to a unanimous points win if a KO doesn't occur before hand to the bloke on top. Very rare to see a bloke under the pump swing something and change the course of the fight in an instant. Sure it does happen but not often

UFC though a fight can change suddenly and the bloke under the pump can turn the tables in an instant whether that be from a strike or a grappling submission move and either get back some control and fight on his terms or finish it.

Yeah no doubt bouts like that appeal to many and would be both entertaining and dramatic. A perfect blend for sport.

But for every one of those there's prob a Ronda Rousey 14sec main event title fight that gives people fuel to counter your argument.

boxing is not a simple sport, with its philosophy. One of the most important factors for a boxer's victory is food. I say this from my own experience. Before training, I tried to eat properly and with the right diet, usually ate fast-paced food. He experimented with food and picked up food on the blog ''Food and Recipes (http://normanfranklin.hatenablog.com/)'', looking at the number of proteins and carbohydrates. Rest is important for the body, sleep is important.

Should be a pretty big week in the Heavyweight division with announcements on future fights regarding AJ, Wilder, Fury and Whyte.
AJ has probably missed his April 13th Wembley date as Whyte has played hardball on his split. Fury V Wilder rematch goes to purse bid on the 5th of February so an agreement between them is imminent because if that goes to purse bid all hell will break loose amongst all the promoters.

What I think will happen:
Fury V Wilder - probably in the US somewhere most likely Brooklyn, Wilder won't want to go to the UK.

AJ V Miller - Heavyweight title defense at MSG. AJ hasn't cracked the US market yet, what better way to make a debut in the US then against a New Yorker at MSG.

Whyte V Breazeale - Breazeale is the WBC mandatory so the winner of this get a shot at the winner of Fury V Wilder. I think Whyte is looking at it as rather than fight AJ now I'll get the WBC belt and then fight AJ, collect 2 big pay days. Weather or not he can get past Breazeale and then Fury or Wilder is a different question but he probably backs himself to be able to.

It's awesome to see the Heavyweight division back to the strength it should be. All this and then you throw in the rumor that Klitschko is possibly making a comeback, it's getting really juicy.

Wilder and Fury have a verbal agreement to take the next fight to England, nothing official tho. Which would set up a trilogy fight in the US.
A boxer's word means nothing, it's all down to the promoters. Fury V Wilder 2 will be at the Barclays Center in New York, that's Wilder's hometown.

The only way Fury V Wilder is in the UK is if it goes to a purse bid a Frank Warren backed by BT Sports win the rights. Fury V Wilder 3 only happens if Fury wins, as Wilder will have a rematch clause. Regardless the winner will have to defend the WBC title to Breazeale (or possibly Whyte if he fights Breazeale and wins) before Fury V Wilder 3 can happen.

Anthony Joshua(AJ) and Eddie Hearn have been trying to get Fury or Wilder for the April 13th date booked for Wembley, both were offered 60/40 in favor of AJ.
Fury (More so Frank Warren rather than Fury) wanted 50/50 and Hearn told him get the WBC belt and we'll talk about 50/50.
Wilder by all reports hasn't even responded to the initial offer from AJ and Hearn.

The WBC have since mandated the Fury V Wilder rematch. It goes to purse bid on the 5th of February if a deal hasn't been reached by both parties beforehand.

The Heavyweight division just keeps getting juicier.

Now the Undisputed Crusierwight Champion Oleksandr Usyk is getting shopped around to Heavyweights. There is talk of him fighting Joseph Parker or Alexander Povetkin for those of you who don't know who Povetkin is. He is the bloke AJ last fought so he is no mug Heavyweight, his only 2 defeats were to AJ and Klitschko in 36 fights.
If Usyk can step up the weight division and beat Povetkin or Parker it will be a huge statement of intent from Usyk.

The Heavyweight division hasn't been this good for nearly 50 years. Good times indeed.

AJ vs Miller is happening.

It's the only fight AJ has got at this stage after Whyte turn him down for a couple of reasons. I heard the % of the split for the rematch if Whyte won is what turned Whyte away. Whyte and AJ have the same promoter so I feel for Whyte, apparently AJ offered a 70/30 split for the title shot but wanted 50/50 for the rematch if Whyte won. Whyte wasn't having any of that he wanted 70/30 in his favor for the rematch which you can't argue with in my opinion.

Because of that Whyte is going down the path of becoming WBC mandatory because in a voluntary defense you can negotiate a rematch. In a mandatory defense you don't have to negotiate a rematch but you get less of the split. That way if he gets to mandatory and beats AJ, AJ is then playing by Whyte's rules. You have to admire Whyte he is playing the long game and his backing himself to be successful which is going to require taking a lot of low paying risk rather than taking a big pay check right now.

Tyson Fury signed a reportedly $50m deal with ESPN and Top Rank Boxing today. This has huge implications for the Heavyweight Boxing division and it makes the prospect of an AJ Vs Fury fight very difficult.

In simple terms.
AJ has a deal with Sky TV in the UK and DAZN in the US.
Fury now has a deal with BT Sports in the UK and ESPN in the US.
What does that mean? It means that now if these 2 were to fight none of the previously mentioned networks would have access to exclusive broadcasting.
This has Boxing politics written all over it, Top Rank Boxing are desperate to hold on to power in the US. This is a Hail Mary to keep PPV Boxing alive as DAZN is a subscription lead broadcaster and they are making big waves in the US market. Things are going to get a lot messier before we see AJ Vs Fury Unfortunately.

Whilst it is a very sensible Business decision from Fury, to me this is more proof that Fury wants nothing to do with AJ. AJ has the whole Heavyweight Division running scared.

I thought Wilder had a deal with Showtime/Fox but apparently not, Wilder has come out a said he is a free agent. Apparently he is only advised by Shelly Finkel who works with Showtime.

I've got no idea how this is all going to shake out, it's going to be really interesting if it goes to purse bid. If it goes to purse bid I wouldn't be surprised if Matchroom Boxing(Eddie Hearn) goes hard at it with the support of DAZN.

Fury ducks Wilder.
Fury V Wilder 2.0 is officially off, what happens next is now a little clearer but also a little more unknown.

So let's start this off with the WBC rankings.
Champ- Deontay Wilder
1- Dillian Whyte
2- Tyson Fury
3- Luis Ortiz
4- Dominic Breazeale (For some reason Breazeale is the mandatory and not Whyte)
5- Adam Kownaki
6- Joseph Parker
7- Alexander Povetkin

Ok so the fall out from Fury deciding to reject a mandated fight from the WBC, he will most likely be dropped from the rankings. So...

-Wilder will most likely be forced to fight his mandatory Breazeale which is what I think will happen, unless a deal can be made to make the undisputed fight with AJ. If the undisputed deal can be made then Wilder's next fight will mostly likely be a tune up against a no body whilst AJ fights Jarrel Miller.
-Whyte is left out in the cold for a bit, will he fight Breazeale, WBC mandated Whyte V Breazeale for the interim WBC title. But that may change now as Breazeale will probably push for the Wilder fight as he is the mandatory. I'm really not sure where Whyte will go next.
-Fury. Where do I start. He has signed a 5 fight deal with ESPN. I can't imagine him jumping straight into a big fight as ESPN will want to build up his profile in the US. I can't see him fighting anyone in the top 20. This is just a guess but someone like Gerald Washington, Washington has a bit of a profile due to his NFL days and he is ageing so he would be a good cherry pick to build Fury's profile in the US.
-Ortiz is close to 40, he has been called out by a few people as I feel some people see him ripe for the picking and they want him on his resume, it's funny because no one wanted to go near him 3-4 years ago. I think the obvious fight would be Ortiz V Kownacki.
-Breazeale is going to push hard for the Wilder fight, if he can't get that then it would have to be Whyte for the WBC Interim title.
-Kownacki is a Polish born New Yorker, he is looking for that fight to put him in with the next level of Boxers. A record of 19-0 his last win was a convincin K/O performance against Gerald Washington and if he can get Ortiz on his resume then that could propel him closer to a title shot.
-Parker was trying to get a May date in the UK against Dereck Chisora but that seems to have fallen through, where he goes now I don't know. Rumors are that he could fight Fury next but I can't see Fury going for that.
-Povetkin, Povetkin V Usyk is all but locked in for the 18th of May. Me personally I am pumped for this fight, purely to see how Usyk will go in the Heavyweight division.

If Oleksandr Usyk can get past Povetkin then he would probably be one win away from AJ. Usyk and AJ are both in the Matchroom Boxing camp so it would be a easy fight to make. In my opinion if Usyk can handle the step up then AJ V Usyk is far far far bigger than AJ V Wilder, Fury or Whyte especially if AJ is undisputed by then. It would be the first 4 belt heavyweight champion V the first 4 belt crusierweig champion

Big Baby Miller pops twice, 1 in a blood test and 1 in a piss test.

Eddie Hearn has insisted that AJ's dance at the Garden will still go ahead but who will be his Partner.

Whyte- he has a date booked in for early July and AJ Vs Whyte 2.0 at the Garden doesn't make sense, that fight will come and it will be at Wembley.
Wilder- Wilder already ducked US$100million to do 2 fights with AJ, he doesn't want that dance. He is also scheduled to fight Dominic Breazeale in 4 weeks.
Fury- Signed a huge deal to be excluse to ESPN, this is a DAZN card it can't happen no matter how much people want it. Also Fury is already booked in to fight Tom Swartz a nobody German.
Ortiz- Eddie Hearn and AJ want Ortiz, Ortiz has been quoted by "a insider" that he wants it too. However the PBC, Ortiz management agency have publicly said it's to short notice. I hope it's Ortiz.
Micheal Hunter- WHO??? Hunter looks like the favorite to get it, Hunter is a former Cruiserweight who has had 2 fights at Heavyweight winning both of them. His an American with a record of 16-1, his 1 defeat was to Usyk at Cruiserweight. Hunter just signed on to Eddie Hearns Matchroom Boxing so the fight should be easy to make.

What an absolute fool Jarrel Miller is. US$8million pay day gone down the drain.

This could be one of the biggest fairytale story's in the history of Boxing, Danny Jacobs is lucky to be walking let alone Boxing.


On to AJ's next opponent, for those those living under a rock. Luis Ortiz turned down 14 times his biggest payday to fight AJ, his biggest payday to date is $500,000 he that he got to fight Wilder. AJ and DAZN with Matchroom Boxing offered Ortiz $7million for the June 1st date, you have to love Boxing politics sometimes.
So in comes Andy Ruiz Jr, Ruiz a Mexican will bring the Mexican crowd and he won't be a walk over. That's the best he can offer but he is probably the best of the rest.

I think Gallen being younger, fitter, and more experienced will simply be too much for Hall to deal with. It's one thing to king hit someone on a football field it's a whole new world to do it in the ring against someone that can actually fight.
I'd like to see Hall win, but he's going to need a lot of luck.

It's a shame that people in Australia think that the aforementioned are "no mugs" when there is a decent pool of talented boxers in Australia. A pool of talented boxers that struggle for a payday in their applied trade and then watch the aforementioned swoop in and collect 5x, 10x sometimes 20x the payday of what these boxers can get.

What's worse is that when actual boxer's call to fight these blokes they get lowballed, it's rumored that Gallen and Hall got paid $800k for 6x2 minute rounds. However when Browne called for that fight he was only offered $100k by Gallens team, Gallen claims he wants to take boxing seriously but does the exact opposite.

If his no mug then he should take fights with the likes of Mckean or Browne. His 38 years old he needs to move fast If he wants to take the sport serious and go for world titles. If that is the case he needs to get into real fights against real contenders and earn a mandatory position at one of the 4 titles. But we both know he won't be doing that, all his interested in is coming into the sport for a quick buck fighting easy opposition and leaving again. It's an embarrassment to the sport, it's no different to what Bolt done at CCM.

Mug punters will dip into boxing for 5 minutes believing all the hype from the promoters that it's a proper fight, pay to watch the fight, then bitch that boxing is shit because they paid to watch a shit fight. All whilst there is far better content being put out there from actual boxers that aren't shit and struggling to get a payday because these NRL/AFL knobs float in and out of the sport taking good money from it when they do.

Gallen doesn't need any defending. He's had nine wins as a professional, and he's given fighters on the undercard to his bout with Hall an opportunity to fight before a much larger audience than they could draw on their own.

It might be unfair, it might lessen the value of the sport when ex-footballers are a bigger draw than those dedicating all they have to it - but it's the reality of how the world works.

The Gallen/Hall fight was on the undercard, as it was a Top Rank card broadcast in the US, do you really think Bob Arum and the US care about a couple of old retired Australian sport stars. That card was going to be put on regardless of the Gallen/Hall fight happing and that was because of the Moloney brothers. Get your facts right before you talk shit.

"It's the reality of how the world works"? Actually the rest of the world laughs at us when they see these fights past as Professional fights.

Whilst I'm not a huge fan of Mayweather, he certainly took a few flights that one could call a cherrypick however he was also in plenty of battles and won world title's at 5 weights. You can't do that from cherrypicks only, yes boxer's do it and they get called out when they do just like Gallen.

As I said earlier but, Gallen is 38 if he wants to take boxing serious like he said he does, then he doesn't have time to cherrypick he has to move fast. But blind Freddy can see his only in boxing for a quick buck like all of the other NRL players and very few boxing fans want to see his fights.
