Had the sky commentary out here in Australia. It was as if Kelly was fighting a shadow it was that one sided. I couldnt work out at times what they were watching.

Kelly with the low guard was getting caught with the right hand throughout the fight. Kept moving to the left and getting caught, was inevitable that it would eventually catchup with him.

You need to have the tools to be able to be flashy and cocky, I dont think he is anywhere close to being that skilled from what we saw in this fight.

Canelo v Yildirim a pointless beatdown as expected. Word is Canelo didn't even bother getting juiced up.

I think BJS can outbox him, Amir Khan did for a few rounds before he was blitzkreiged.

I give Billy a 35% chance, depends on a few things.

Does he have the power to get Canelo's respect? I doubt it
Will he come in tip top shape? Career high payday, you'd expect so
Will he gas late on? Did against Eubank..

FOTY so far that's been announced

Parker vs Fa was as Alan Smith would say, incredibly average, I think Chisora has a chance

Those are the right questions and answers but I think even if BJS does cause him problems Canelo is such a wise and experienced fighter he'll adapt and also carries more power. Even though I think BJS could cause problems I still think he has almost no chance of getting the result.

Didn't see the Parker fight but heard he was average and the scorecards were a joke. Should be a decent match up with Del Boy but he must be feeling the miles on the clock by now?

Round 9 in the first fight is as good as boxing gets.

I have just woken up to this news. Seems a shame for it to be but a footnote in a not widely read World of Sport thread.

66 is no great age, he had been very low profile.in the past few years so I don't know if his health was failing of late.

My favourite boxer of all time, fell in love with him immediately when he destroyed Minter in 1980 and stuck with him all the way through. He was an outsider and a loner when it came to the world of boxing, used his grinding sense of injustice to drive him on. Did not have an entourage, used to carry his own bag to the ring. Locked himself away in deserted hotels for months on end when training for his fights. Had an absolute granite chin, was only ever knocked to the canvas once and even on that occasion he always insisted that he'd slipped!

After retirement he softened up somewhat and enjoyed life to the full although he still allowed that final fight against Leonard to burn away within him.

The 80s really did seem like a golden era for boxing with largely unified world champions and the big guns happy to take each other on with regularity. Four Kings is a well known and superb book about that time, would also highly recommend Hagler's biography 'Marvelous', written by a boxing insider which tracks his career fight by fight.

Should have also mentioned that the 'Marvelous' monicker was originally just a nickname, one he developed because all the other boxers had one. But the ring announcers often didn't bother to use it, just introducing him as plain old 'Marvin Hagler'. So eventually he changed his name by deed poll to the full 'Marvelous Marvin Hagler', his reasoning being that then they would have no choice in the matter. Gave him another opportunity to stoke those burning fires of injustice.

For the above reason you should never spell Marvin's 'marvelous' with the English double L, if you do you're spelling his name wrong!

RIP Marvelous.

I’m no boxing fan, but there are sportsmen who transcend their sport where even non fans watch. He was one of those ( although it helped he was up against other greats )

He once remarked that the toughest man he ever fought was Kevin Finnegan. Fought him twice and after one brawl Finnegan needed over 30 stitches in his face.
Another quote from Hagler after being asked why he retired. He said, "it's very hard to get up at five o'clock on a freezing morning to go running when you are sleeping in silk sheets."
A great fighter who never seemed to get the adulation he deserved.
