good point 😄

Id imagine Warren will do good numbers at the Albert Hall tomorrow for this too, sure a bunch of people in town for the final will attend this tomorrow night, not sure if the venue is full capacity. Could be a good atmosphere with the whole England/Italy thing.

only one real meaningful show this weekend, but its a good one.

Super Welterweight Unification!

We are lucky if we get one unification fight a year, but this will be the second of 2021. All 4 major belts on the line, plus the Ring belt. This is what its all about.

Showtime have done an All Access special for it too, which is nice:

Only on Fite TV over here unfortunately, so it'll cost you a few quid.

bit of a shame that a shitty scorecard is overshadowing how good Charlo/Castano was last weekend. I had Castano by 2-3 rounds, thought i could justify a draw. 117-111 to Charlo is just one of the worst cards ive ever read, shocking.

A rematch would be great though.

Should have been watching Fury/Wilder 2 days, that went up in smoke but we are left with this on BT Sports Saturday evening:

Solid little card that.

I didnt think much of Takam/Joyce originally but the closer its got the more ive found myself interested in it. It seems like a routine next step for Joyce but this may end up being his hardest fight. Takam is 40, but hes one of those Yoel Romero types who is always in ridiculous shape. He's won 4 straight since losing to Chisora and the winner will be made a mandatory to AJ so hes gonna be bang up for it.

I expect Joyce to slowly break up him down and maybe get a late stoppage but i think this could be dicey for Joe for the opening half of the fight. 

Big ol' size difference too:

Joe Joyce is an anomoly isnt he?  (i probably say that at the end of every Joyce fight) theres no one else like him. Like i'd expected he a had a shaky couple of rounds but his chin is so good he doesnt seem to mind eating overhands. He just slowly finds his way into the fight and in round 6 he busted out some unexpected handspeed and got Takam out of there. The stoppage was abit early, but Joyce wasnt gonna stop throwing so it was probably the right call.

Fight Camp starts tomorrow then. The lineup has divided opinion but theres lots to like, plus im real interested to see how Matchroom present the show on DAZN. Absolute kicker that they lot Benn/Granados as that was the fight that would hace generated the interest but whats left is solid. Still its abit of a blow for the launch show. 

They are hoping to get Benn/Granados on the August 14th show.
