Coming out to I Predict a Riot the week after someone was killed at a boxing promotion. Stay classy, Leeds.

I don't know what it is, but Dillian Whyte just seems to flatter to deceive really.  He was more than comfortable but never really looked like stopping Helenius.  Thought Katie Taylor was excellent and is just such a bundle of energy.

Nasty bang to the nose for Joshua from Takamís head.

To be fair to him he is one tough customer.

Slightly questionable stoppage but Takam was way behind in the fight.

After consulting the doctor twice the ref was just waiting for the first time that he thought Takan didnít see a shot coming at him.  Surprised the doc waved it on the second time to be fair.

AJ looked a bit laboured after he got the busted nose but you wonder if he was too big?

Just looked like he was strugglign with his breathing for me, had his mouth open a lot which he doesn't normally do, I wouldn't be looking much beyond the broken nose to explain that though.

I wondered that.  Seemed like it was an issue against Klitschko. but then he went and got even bigger.  I suppose though, his original intended opponent was much bigger than Takam.

I think the view is he put on a lot of bulk in a short space of time to take on Takem. That would have had an impact.

This is a good piece about the recent problems at shows.

Takam was better than he thought, I suspect. Also must be difficult to be fighting a late sub who has nothing to lose and is probably taking part in his biggest career fight. Joshua never looked like losing
