Not sure why the ref is breaking them up so often, it's been a bit odd because of it.

AJ probably wins as the more aggressive boxer but the ref breaking things up very quickly slowed it down far too much and meant it always looked like going to points.  Wasn't great to watch because of it.

A poor fight between two nice guys, meaning there was very little aggression.
That was compounded by an awful referee who seemed to not want to see either fighter get hurt.

Glad Joshua won though.

Well done AJ, but very disappointing fight not helped by a useless ref, I want my money back!

I thought it was pretty interesting. Sometimes you have to respect the opponent, Parker is no bum and Joshua did what he needed to do to control the fight.

Correct result

Average fight.

A bit like a one nil with a 90th minute winner after a turgid 89 minutes

I would say it wes more like a 2-0 home win by an average team who did what they had to do to beat a not as good team.

Tommy Coyle's started off well. This could be the best night of boxing this season.

He has seemed in quite a strange and subdued mood in the build up to this fight and I suppose it will come down to how much he has left in the tank.  I thought he was starting to exert some control in the first fight before his Achilles went and I think he would have stopped Bellew had it not been for the injury.

Haye would have won the last fight without the injury, he was starting to find his range.
