Did the fight seem very different in second watch?

Yeah I thought that Kovalev edged it. This might sound crazy, but I feel that Kovalev got screwed a little bit by the judges and I'll tell you why. I thought the fight could've went either way but every judge gave round 10 to Ward and I thought that was a one that Kovalev won pretty easily. There's still other rounds that could've went to Ward that they gave to Kovalev though, but by their cards Kovalev should've won the fight because of the 10th round.

I got to rant to you here champ. It's about the Lomachenko vs Walters fight and a excuse someone gave on instagram on why Lomachenko won. This person said that the fight was fixed because they wanted to get a new great white hope and that Lomachenko is overrated. I don't follow this person, but her posts come up in recommended posts and she is the biggest racist I have seen in boxing. She brags all the time when a black fighter wins but complains and cries fix when a black fighter loses. It's so ridiculous that people root for fighters because of race. She complains when people hate on Mayweather or Ward but hates on Loma or GGG because they are white. I think it's ridiculous to be honest, I respect a fighter because of their skills not race. I really think that Lomachenkos skills are top 5 pound for pound after his performance against a good fighter like Walters. It's fans like that that ruin the sport.

He didn't get screwed by the judges, screwed by mere inconvenience maybe, because it would have been good to have seen a split decision, but I stand by my score which is the same as those of the judges. No actually that's the one round on my card I'm not so sure about, Claressa Shields, and I believe Paulie Malignaggi were saying that Ward won 100% of the second half of the fight decisively, I definitely think round 10 could have at the very least been a round Ward edged.

Hey buddy, don't sweat it, I've ranted to you on several occasions about David Haye or analysts who I don't like. Again mate, it's one of those situations when you have you remember social media is no palace for knowledge, and some people just don't want you be liked, they want to cause controversy, and that means not being nice. That's just another situation stupid suggestion, but many idiots make more insane sounding insinuations than that to be honest.

Hope you don't mind if I have a little rant now, fat boy Dan Rafael can use his usual solution of cakes and doughnuts to keep his big mouth shut, or try to get in the ring and boxing for 5 seconds, haha, no nobody would be that cruel. How dare any 'pundit' who has never been in the ring, deem a champion like Nicholas Walters 'pathetic', notice it's only 'analysts' who have been giving himself stick, Roberto Duran quit, he wasn't really physically hurt, he quit against Ray Leonard, but hey, you said it, Lomackenko could even the best on the planet right now, are these in idiots going to start tearing Duran apart? These idiots, they can mess around in what ever library of whatever uni they like, they can learn Joe Louis' favourite boxer of his era, Muhammad Ali's favourite boxing glove brand, what day of the week it was when Ray Robinson started boxing, but it doesn't mean they know s*** bout boxing. People should learn that the questions of whether or not a boxer is coward is definitely, unchangeably answered well, well, well before they win a flipping world title.

I see you went back to team Ward after a third watch, it's that kind of fight, I'd probably have Kovalev winning with a second watch, and then maybe Ward again with the third.

Did you hear Szpilka vs Breazeale is looking likely?, and on a different topic, Frank Warren is keen to make Rigondeaux vs Tete!, what a fight!, but I question whether or not the former suped flyweight champion is big enough!, even of not, Rigondeaux wouldn't have everything his own way there.

Yeah I made a mistake. I felt he won round 3. I'm going to watch it again sometime soon.

I did not hear about that for either way. I like Rigo but I can see why other people don't. He does come off as a diva at times and sometimes has really boring performances. I thought he looked great against Donaire.

That was a 50/50 round.

Well don't you love the idea?! I share that opinion. The reason why he bores me, is because of the way he chooses to make mismatches long, I suppose in his defence, we dkn't know what hai intentions are, but I just think he's thoroughly nasty, and I woulsn't mind seeing him lose, it would be a big ask for the underrated African, but I'll say, Tete is a threat to Rigondeaux! Yes he did, and I think that's why love him or hate him, we have to give him the respect he deserves, because that was a phemoninal performance from Guillermo Rigondeaux, although, I think I saw some vulnerabilities in that fight.

Agreed.

I do like the idea. That's what I don't like about Rigo. He's so talented and has underrated power but he chooses to outbox and frustrate his opponents. Like against Dickens, if he didn't break his jaw Rigo might have won a one sided decision against Dickens. The fight I want to see is him vs Lomachenko. The only vulnerabilities I remember in that Donaire fight is his chin isn't the best.

It's koe thing to choose not to make a special effort to push for the stoppage, and choose notvto take risks it isn't essential to take, but to (what I call) carry an opponent, is another thing, it is extremely disrespectful, as a former boxer myself, I would rather have been blasted out in a round than patronised, and taken for a ride over the course of the schedled distance, and the thing is, those aren't genuine rounds, and Rigondeaux isn't really gaining anything from them. I think Lomackenko beats him. Well that's the only one in terms of basic attributes, but that wasn't the only thing I woukd smile at if I were Lomackenko's promoter, I mean, if we look at the work rate of Lomackenko, and think about the pace Rigondeaux is used to, do you think the 37 year old Cuban (who's heart I question) would be able to cope with that raised pace?, it's a very interesting fight, but I don't think it will happen.
