    Those firestones are good.

    One of the best fights I've seen in a while.

    It was a great fight live, a few down rounds between 7-10 and 1-3 were quite slow, but for a heavy weight fight, it was fireworks!!!
    I am so excited that that fight happened. You guys have some amazing heavyweights over there. I think the only fight that needs to happen now is Wilder vs Joshua. I think Wilder has freak is power but Joshua is just a very very athletic and talented big man.

    I think the thing that impressed me most about Joshua in that fight was the way he got his legs back. After he punched himself out trying to knock him out after the first knockdown I thought he was done.

    He got rocked a few times as well by Klitschko - I though he was done in the 4th or 5th round (don't remember which).

    The whole thing reminded me of the first Rocky movie.

    Default Muhammad Ali and the fight game

    watch the post-fight press conference. It's easy to forget that this kid and boxing terms is relatively young I mean he's 19 fights under his belt. Well belts pun intended. I just really like him I like wild or a lot and the American Homer in me wants to think that while there could beat him but I just don't think Wilder is nearly as polished even though he's had so many more fights

    I don't think wilder is in his league, but I think he's the closest to him.

    I honestly think Joshua could have a 25-0 career and a knock out percentage of 100%

    He should fight wilder next, see who else is they're worth fighting, knock out a few bums then retire.

    There's that stud heavyweight from New Zealand. He reminds me of Evander Holyfield but I just don't see him being able to deal with the size of either Wilder or Joshua. I hope that Wilder and Joshua have one of those amazing three fights Series where one guy wins one andthe other guy wins two and they go around as as one of the greatest rivalries in the history of boxing. It's pretty cool that there's actually been a decent Resurgence in the heavyweight because it's been a long time since we've seen legitimately good Heavies. I think Josh is going to destroy Tyson Fury.

    and the funny thing about how about fight will go is that Tyson Fury talked a lot about jab and grab from Klitschko. I think the only way Fury last into the middle rounds in a Joshua fight is if he employs that exact tactic

    Tyson fury is a joke.

    Joshua will take him out in two rounds, do would wilder, do would klitchko if they ever fought again.

    I hate fury!!

    Did Trump and King fix Tyson-Douglas?

    There were some really good fights last night on Fox. Every one a knock out, but tons of action in all three bouts.
