    Stylistically, I would love to see Warren show some balls for once and bring Pascal over to the UK to fight Yarde, I think that would be a ton of fun

        Ref didn't make a mistake - punch was blocked but still dropped Fanlong. He tried to close his eyes and throw a punch but Pascals shot knocked him off balance and put him down. Clear KD.

          Tried to read the article since I missed the fight. But it's that weird guy who writes his round by round in reverse order. Smh

            Congratulations to Pascal, as long as he passes the current drug tests.

            I think he blatantly did take anabolic steroids and EPO, which one cannot excuse. But I'll give him credit for some of his boxing skills. Fanglong is clearly not as good as they thought he was, and they also underestimated Pascal's experience.

            They also want to write people off for their age too soon. 39 isn't old at all, it just depends if you've been through too many wars etc.

              Interesting comment, Explain it more, if you like.

              i have also used the term 'Clutch game' to describe a attribute certain fighters have etc.

              Errol Spence Junior is a fighter who have a proven clutch game 'Tyson Fury also'.

              When I use the term, it is describing fighters who very rarely if ever under perform in big fights.

              They never lose for lack of effort or not trying something there and then in the fight.

              Spence Junior's win vs Danny Garcia after his accident for me, was his best performance.

                I doubt Florida has strict PED testing.

                  Yes, covid and visa issues torpedoed that fight about half a dozen times as I recall. Fanlong had two "decent" wins on his ledger, stopping Buglioni and outpointing Deines who gave Beterbiev a decent fight himself.

                    I missed the card, who did they have doing the commentating?

                      NSB is like

                      "Why won't this highly ranked fighter (Spence, Crawford etc.) fight this high risk low reward fighter (Boots)? DUCKING!!!"
                      "Why won't this highly ranked fighter (Canelo) fight this high risk low reward fighter (Bumbanga)? DUCKING!!!"

                      But here, NSB is like

                      "Why did this highly ranked fighter (Fanlong) fight this high risk low reward fighter (Pascal)? Doesn't make sense"

                      At some point, NSB, you need to be CONSISTENT.
