    Had it on as background when I last looked, but it's turned into badminton now!

    The Super Heavyweights should be good with 2 well seasoned fighters in GBs Frazer Clarke and the USA fighter Richard Torrez.
    Torrez is tipped for big things, he's only 22 and has only lost a few in about 150 fights beating hot prospect Jared Anderson on the way.

    Hopefully Frazer and Torrez will meet at some point.

    You mean this Torrez who got put to sleep? Americans have no talent above middleweight.

    Bigger man George, bigger punch!

    Yeah the same Torrez as in the video is the fighter being tipped for big things,

    We all remember that KO which caused outrage 3 years ago

    The complete mismatch sparked a furious reaction among the boxing community, led by WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman.

    "Brutal and criminal to allow a professional boxer Jalolov from Russia with 6-0 as a pro to fight outclassed, outweighed and far smaller USA 20-year-old amateur Torrez AIBA world championship in Russia,” he tweeted.

    I'll watch but then not sure how I will as they seem to only show rowing but I wish they would show all the sports. I disagree with pro boxers being allowed in.

    I think these pro's underestimate how good the top amateurs are. Look at Artur Beterbiev, he didn't turn pro until he was 28 and is seen as a monster in the light heavy division right now. But he was no were near the top amateur in his divisions.

    The likes of Keyshawn Davis is in for shock, if he things he can just go to Tokyo and pick a gold medal easy and run through the Kazaks, Uxbeq sor Cubans

    Pro fighters aren't active enough each round to keep up with the work-rate of top amateurs.

    Well Jalolov is in this 2020 Olympics too. He is fighting on the 28th at 11:00pm EST.

    They didn't even look close in size and weight, unless torrwz has really improved his nutrition with Mexican beef I can't see him beating that guy :S...

    Olympic boxing suffers from the same shitty judging malady that professional boxing does. Difference being they only have three rounds to totally screw things up.

    *Not boxing, no other thread . Unpopular opinion maybe but um didn't Simone Biles flat out quit on her team . I mean I get it..yes tons of pressure in the Olympics as a star athlete but not exactly her first rodeo. Just confused by that move and this full rush to throw heaps of 'brave courage' praise on her. Maybe today's my asshole day but bit ironic she just managed to multiple the focus and pressure tens times over on herself after stating she did it for the team and to take a backseat for them to avoid just that. Of course tons of that is on the media but I mean..huh . Maybe in Cynic-ville they wanted to take the spotlight off the Biles shine because they knew they were not going to get Gold. No idea just seems like a trend lately when it comes to the twenty somethings. Alright thread hi-jack over

    Yeah one is a bit larger. Or one is just a tab bit smaller.
    All's lost! Everything's going to shit!

    I always like Richie Woodhall’s commentary. He is a really good technical analyst and had such a good amateur career himself that he is excellent and knowledgeable about amateur bouts. He is the only guy who really analyses anything, the rest just describe what you are already seeing on screen.
    If God wanted us to be vegetarians, why are animals made of meat ?

    I've been saying this for years, Woodhall should be a regular on Sky/BT/DAZN
    Brilliant knowledge of boxing.
