This competition has sadly failed to change the rather dull tone of Callum Smiths career. He’s fought nobody even now yet gets a final spot. Nothing against the guy but he’s just done very little and now gets a final spot and world title shot.

Its true that Smith's career hasn't caught fire like it was expected it would, its been painfully slow burning but there's still time. The Groves fight will be built into a big event. There will be a lot on the line and some big lucrative options after. Hopefully it will capture the imagination.

Its strange how Smith's power has seemed to be on the wane in recent fights. Not sure whether that's a case of him fighting genuinely tough fighters lately, whether he's not quite a massive hitter on the world stage, or whether he's drained at the weight and its depleting him. Perhaps a bit of everything.

Groves has said he’s having a minor operation on his shoulder this morning and should be ready to fight in July. Hopefully this can be accommodated as it should mean the final being done and dusted before any of the new series commence.

Makes sense to put it back for a month its the final fans want to see.

I agree that it hasn't quite set the world alight. But you have to ask yourself why?
The best fighting the best but still it doesn't ignite.
If this competition hadn't happened who would each of these guys have fought if not each other.

To be honest the only decent fighters in this are those from the UK.

I think Groves and maybe eubank would of faced each other or decent opponents. Smith may of fought another 3 or 4 number one contender fights while waiting for a world champion willing to set up a ring in Kirkby market.

Groves has said he’ll be ready to fight in the final if an extension is granted to push it back until 7th July.

Usyk has suffered an elbow injury so the Cruiserweight final now needs to be postponed. It’s a real shame that both editions have run into injury problems just before the conclusion.  Although the Cruiser was starting to be touted for other destinations last week.

The new weight classes are to be announced today.  I read that Rodriguez had stayed in the UK after his win over Butler so it will be interesting to see who else joins him in the mix.

Tete and Burnett a both in at Bantam which is a good start.

Groves has been declared fit to face Smith in the final. Good news for the tournament I would’ve had zero interest in Smith v Eubank.

Glad they've managed to get it sorted.  Hopefully Groves will be fully fit for the final andisn't rushing back into things too quickly to suit the date.  Hopefully there will be a new date for Usyk v Gassiev soon as well.

Happy with that also, no interest in Smith v Eubank Jr. Although looks like he will be on standby should anyone dropout.

Fancy Groves to get the win at the moment, but will depend on his recovery.

Even with the delay the format has been very successful so far in my opinion.
