Instead of creating a thread for every event related to combat sports, I thought I would share one to encompass all major events coming up.

Anyone watch the Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury fight on Saturday? It was a robbery!!!

I was at the UFC in Adelaide with a few mates so missed the fight but seen the aftermath, boxings a shambles for this type of thing.

Mark Hunt was disappointing (second poor showing in Adelaide and I've been to both!) but hopefully Tai Tuivasa has a future, good Aussie lad!

Friday nights Horn v Mundine was worse, last we'll see of Mundine but Horn needs to get some big fights now.

I heard Hunt lost, didn't want to see the result as he was one of my fav fighters from Pride.

The boxing fight was incredible and a made for TV moment. Incredible way to comeback from that 12 round KO. Huge fan of Fury!!

HUUUUGE upset yesterday with Anthony Joshua getting knocked out by new Heavyweight champ Andy Ruiz Jr! First Mexican Heavyweight champ, first loss for Joshua.

Rematch clause stipulates it will be held in the UK, won't matter where it is if AJ gets hit like that again though!

Incredible fight. HEAVYWEIGHT BOXING IS BACK!!!!!!!

Exciting time to be a boxing fan as we have 4 LEGIT heavyweights vying for the title and klitschko coming back out of retirement to shake things up and squeeze a few more pay days.

RUIZ was 25-1 underdog!!

Ruiz is an underdog in terms of fame/popularity sure. But Joshua is 22-1. So not sure how ruiz was an underdog.

AJ is a hype train that got derailed. One thing I've noticed is that fighters with oval faces don't have chins (amir khan for example) and people with square faces can take beatings ( mark hunt).

Well they can always get surgery.

Thats an interesting theory on how different shapes can help with punishment. Though it's kind of common sense to keep your hands up and chin down. (This causes body shots though. I'd rather have headaches all day then having the wind knocked out of me...)
