Joshua v Ngannou's been announced. Meanwhile, you can't get a price on Fury v Usyk being cancelled. What a sport.

And everything happening in Saudi Arabia. It's a load of bollocks. No wonder UFC is becoming more and more popular.

Is UFC really popular or is it similar WWF closed-shop entertainment. Is there a thriving UFC equivalent of a York Hall bill? I've never watched it so only really know it from the disturbingly celeb way it's written about.

Just watched the “Rumble in the Jungle”  For the first time.
My parents have always raved about it when they watched live in 74.
Now that’s a proper scrap.
No bollocks
Cooper’s left hook is still a classic.

Jonas wins it on a split decision, could have gone either way, but what a brilliant fight.

I had it to Myer but it was better than the Cullen v Chelli snoozeathon.

Er, Cooper?

Indeed, my mnemonic for remembering which is which is that Foreman didn't fight Ali in Manila and Frazier didn't fight him in Zaire.

Or you could just know your boxing history 😉

Fury v Usyk on 17 Feb is gonna be on Sky, TNT and Dazn, which is very unusual, needless to say PPV.

Tyson Fury's undisputed heavyweight title fight against Oleksandr Usyk has been postponed after the Briton sustained a "freak" cut in training.

Fury, 35, was cut in sparring at his training camp in Saudi Arabia on Friday in preparation for the bout on 17 February in Riyadh.

The injury above Fury's right eye needed "urgent medical attention" and "significant stitching".
