Bend You Over and Take You to Browne Town

Every Brit is running from Big Daddy Browne. The only one (Towers) to have the sand to step in the ring with him got embarrassed and easily KO’ed. What is with all the Brit Heavyweight hype jobs?

Anthony Joshua, Hughie Fury & Joseph Parker should supply some fantastic entertainment in the next few years!

“The small ring was a big factor IMO. I was very nervous as soon as I saw the size of it that Groves would end up getting caught on the ropes with a big shot when he stopped moving.” – Anyone know how big the ring was? 20×20, smaller or bigger? The English guys who attended the fight expressed shock at how small the ring was as they entered the stadium. Big advantage for Froch.

I would not read into Joshua getting staggered as a sign he’s chinny. Aggressive dudes who go for KOs get caught with bigger punches than boxing stylists. Important thing is he came back to get the KO win. If anything it’s a positive because it shows he doesn’t panic when getting clocked. Good prospect.

The criticism of Joshua is grossly unfair, and truly idiotic. He has only had 6 fights. Remember that Wilder was fighting people of Matt Legg level in his 25th fight!!! Joshua will probably have another 10-15 fights against gradually improving opposition, then make a move into the top 15 or top 10, which is entirely natural.

Sarcasm aside, it’s good to know he can take a big punch or two…it’s more than we’ve seen Wilder take. But at the same time, he got caught twice with the same big punch, not good…though I guess it’s good to have one’s weaknesses exposed so you know what to work on.

Yeah, Joshua really does look “over-muscled”. Almost looks unnatural, especially for such a tall man. But I’m sure it’s just due to his training regimen, which is probably designed to promote the bicep/tricep/pec hypertrophy so important for a boxer.

Great night at Wembley,Brandon Gonzales clearly had never fought anyone until last night.He certainly was not good enough to fight for an eliminator.Degale did well but he still wont beat Froch.Joshua is doing very well in 2 years time I would put him in with Fury,and he would win.Froch done what he had to do,Groves showed he cannot handle the pressure when he was on the ropes,great KO.

Anthony Joshua seems to be coming along okay, but why has he not fought outside of the UK yet? The experience & exposure would do him the World of good. I also believe that he could be ready to challenge English champion John McDermott before the years out.
Jamie McDonnell had a good win & a logical next fight would be against the winner of Stuart Hall & Paul Butler.

Tark – nonsense, it’s easy with hindsight to think that Froch v Calzaghe would have filled Wembley, but back then Froch hadn’t proved himself and was no where near a household name – it was prior to his big headline grabbing win against Jermain Taylor. Back then Calzaghe would have been far too experienced for Froch, wide points decision. I think if he’s honest, even Froch might now admit that he was too green for Calzaghe when he was cahisng him. Both at their peaks would have been a great fight, but I’d still take Calzaghe with a UD.

Turb0-H@mster going whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa?

And no Froch-Calzaghe would NOT have filled Wembley. YOu keep asserting this TARK, but you are not British, who knows if you have ever even been to London, and you certainly weren`t in the country when Froch was calling out Calzaghe or you would know the over-riding opinion was that Froch hadn`t earned the payday. He had just about worked his way up to mandatory status when Calzaghe left the division.

THis is several British fans, telling you what British fans are and were thinking.

Yet you are so arrogant you won`t listen.

Turb0-H@mster going whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa?

Calzaghe fought in a way that managed his hands. He hit plenty hard enough to stop people countering him.

Posted May 31, 2014 10:31 pm 


TARK

Groves can’t defend. He has the lamest defense for a top money fighter since Jermain Taylor. Froch was determined not to take any chances so Groves wouldn’t find him early.. He was super cautious this time. He sensed Groves was losing steam again, like in the 1st fight, and he stepped it up.

I have to congratulate Froch for taking on the young loud mouthed kid who was gunning for the old man. That’s something Calzaghe wouldn’t do back when Carl Froch was calling him out.

Calzaghe-Froch could have sold out Wembley too… But Calzaghe wasn’t a risk taker… Carl can hit and Joe could be tagged… Calzaghe was like Groves, not a massive KO hitter… and I would say he had even less power than GG.

KOrnerman…. I doubt George will fight again this year. That was a damaging stoppage. I doubt Groves will be out of his shrink’s office before this time next year. All jokes aside that was a damaging defeat. Groves was outwitted by what he thought was a caveman and infringe if his homecrowd.

I wouldn’t put him in with JDG. He’ll need a confidence fight and JDG will be too much risk.

Groves is basically now in the same position as David Price…ie another loss and that may be it for a long while for him. He needs to plot his comeback very carefully…. He may never comeback from a shattering defeat like this!

I THINK FROCH is very, very keen on fighting in Las Vegas…. To be honest he deserves it, unless they can get 20,000 or more fans out to watch JDG!

Posted May 31, 2014 5:52 pm

TJ do you think he will fight Degale? I think Degale is a great comeback fight for Groves.

Posted May 31, 2014 5:50 pm

The small ring didn’t help Groves and Froches jab was razor sharp.

Posted May 31, 2014 5:49 pm

MAYBE, JUST MAYBE CARL COBRA FROCH will now get some respect from all those snipers!!!!
12 consecutive big time World Title fights…

He went to the backyard of the whinger and allowed him every single one of is moans and still Knocked the whinger out – ONE PUNCH KO to let 80,000 Chelsea fans know just who is the man in UK….

Now, for JDG…. And then Kessler III

@Joker. Yeah i sort of agree, i dont think Skelton is the sort just to lie down he will try but ať the samé time he knows he will be paid well and wont be to bothered. AJ needs this fight though. Sprott sexton could be next for him later this year before moving up again

A nice win for young Joshua. I just hope he’s not pushed along too fast.

Posted May 31, 2014 4:33 pm 


Carlo

Watching the rest of the fights now & TOTALLY DISGUSTED at the officiating. Makes me wonder why I watch since it is painfully obvious that the home fighters are getting questionable stoppages from the refs. In fights of this importance the fighters have to be given a reasonable chance. In my eyes it gives the winners a “questionable” win, really poor reffing ( do u think there are fixes on the part of the refs ??). Let’s hope Groves vs Froch is not spoilt again.

@boxing Barlow. Harrison? Oh ffs…his name is worth NOTHING now. That’s a step down, even from Skelton

Posted May 31, 2014 4:18 pm

Im sure AJ is a good one and in the. Early stages but 43? Year old matt Skelton. Early days but id be hoping to see an improvement in the level of opponent shortly. Joseph Parker has minto next. Just saying. Too early to be sure but wilder syndrome is a danger here

Posted May 31, 2014 4:04 pm 


boxing barlow

Skelton makes sense. Id go skelton, sprott and then maybe even Audrey Harrison. 2 former gold medalists has got to make sense from a promotional point of view at this stage even if Harrison is finished.

Skelton is just another guy they will give a nice paycheck and tell him to not take it too seriously. He’ll take a lie down within a round or two.

@Willenin

20th fight. god no. another deontay wilder on our hands.
well at this rate he’s going to that place

Posted May 31, 2014 3:06 pm 


WILenin

Joshua only got 6 pro fights, so give this guy some time to learn. Give him bums up to his 10th fight, then SLOWLY build him up. I don’t hink he should fight a top 20 boxer before his 20th fight.

Posted May 31, 2014 3:00 pm

Wow, what a surprise.
Joshua is miles better than this level.
Enough with the spoon fed antics, and raise the bar.

Anyone and his blind dog can see this is just a milking session by tbe.promoter.

I am boxing in the hot sun, I fought my shadow and the shadow won

JOshua is going to rule the division one day. The question is whether he will be a kindly ruler, allowing the peasantry a certain degree of self-determination, or whether he will crush all you serfs beneath his iron fist.

Posted May 31, 2014 2:30 pm

Hearn said his next fight is Skelton in July. He needs to step it up Skelton next will be a bit better but he is about 45 now

Posted May 31, 2014 2:24 pm 


Joker

Yeah well James Toney at 60 years old managed to KO him too. Another joke of a fight for Joshua, the kid will never learn at this pace and will get a seriously inflated sense of how good he is. What a waste of time
