    Real shame that this is not only normal ITV.

    Bollocks if this is the new face of boxing, less people watch it but those that do pay. Wank business model.

    We need more fighters like these guys in the game. None of this A side, B side crap. They just want to prove who is the best! I'm disappointed the US networks didn't pick this tournament up. Hopefully someone will see common sense and snatch up the final.

    It's also interesting to me that for a fight between 2 very good fighters, both undefeated beltholders, that Usyk is such a heavy favorite. Breidis is an excellent fighter, it just shows how highly we think of Usyk.

    I think Usyk wins but it will be a highly competitive bout. Closer than many are thinking it'll turn out.

    Breidis is pretty handy, kod the f weird made up wba title holder Manuel chart not long ago, I think usyk us just quicker and stronger though and will give a dominating performance but it's going g to be a good win which people may write off as being v some Baltic nobody(even tough breidis really isn't a nobody).

    Breidis can't/won't fight on the inside which leads to a lot of messy holding and with Usyk's height/range/jab/levers I can't see how Breidis wins.

    Excellent clash between elite's of the division but might not be a great spectacle.

    If you speak of exposure yes, network would be good. But if you speak only of ability to view every fight has been on AUD

    Usyk who is most peoples pick to win the tournament has a long hard fight infornt of him. The Latvian is awkward and dangerous at the same time so I don’t see Alexander taking too many chnaces to try and get him out of there. He will more likely display the boxing skills used to conquer Marco Huck last time when he broke the challenger down round by round & looking the best hes ever looked. Breidis is a different proposition. He isn’t on the slide, he hits with power and has a good boxing brain to go with it. Likewise Breidis destroyed current heavyweight world champ Manuel Charr and outboxed Mike Perez last time but this for him is another step up and the biggest challenge of his career. He will find it difficult to sit back and time Usyk & if he goes looking for a KO it plays into Usyks hands so it’s a very tall order and one I don’t think he will succeed in. Usyk has a tough opponent infornt of him but I think he will come through this test with flying colours controlling the majority of rounds, winning convincingly on the cards. 118-110.
