    It will be a murder I’m afraid to say. I might as well be fighting Canelo.

    Think it would go down as a bigger upset than even Lloyd Honeyghan beating Don Curry!

    There’s no way he can win. He hasn’t got the skills, he hasn’t got the punch power and he has a dodgy chin. Look what Smith did to him. He destroyed him in 2 rounds, and Canelo is levels above.

    It’s a tragic mismatch.

    Just as we all thought, absolute demolition job.

    Next weekends tear up will be much more evenly contested. I think Chisora should have got the nod in the first one, both have improved since then, I'm giving Chisora a real chance again. I expect nothing less than an all out war between those two.

    Sky's commentary during the fight last night was mind boggling. They spent three rounds praising Fielding for how well he was doing and the great condition he and his trainer got him into as if he'd hung in there for 10 rounds and put up a contest. He was nothing more than a walking punch bag that took a knee everytime he got hit to the body. I don't want to sound over critical of him because he was way out of his depth but he didn't do anything to deserve any praise.

    Just watched the highlights. Painful to watch, totally out classed and out-punched. The look on his face when taking a knee, looked he wanted it to all be over. Be pretty gutted if I'd paid to watch it.

    If he wasn't paid off, it's probably the worst title defence I've ever seen.

    He didn't attempt to use his size or reach advantage once, he didn't attempt to cover up his body after the first knockdown and he seemed to be smiling every time he took a knee.

    It was a disgraceful performance.

    A Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm-Flailing Tubeman would have put up a better performance than that. Pathetic

    Just logged on to post the same thing, never seen him in better shape. Hopefully he'll have a bit more speed, as well as the power, to take Whyte out in the later rounds after a proper tear up.

    What are peeps doing for tonight’s events?

    I’m probably going to order Whyte/Chisora. Don’t think I’ll order both. Too expensive.

    Well that was the most one sided fight I've watched in a while and one judge gave it to Belotti, WTF?

    Disgusting stoppage. Poor bloke was wobbled once and the fight was immediately stopped. Price being protected FFS.

    Oh well, Price now on his way to unifying the division in his head.

    To be fair he looked gone and was taking a few big shots. He recovered remarkably after the ref waved it off but he did look in big trouble and you can understand the ref stopping it.

    I've never seen a fight stopped that quickly, at least let him go down or take a few unanswered punches without reply. He had his gloves up and was able to protect himself :(

    Edit: Jesus, Price's even more deluded than Fraudley.

    Edit: Get in Paulie, ripping the ref to pieces.
