Just been confirmed for Cardiff. Could be a good year in the heavyweight division with hopefully the winner of this and the winner of Wilder v Ortiz meeting around September time.

Probably just a caution over here if it was a first offence for possession for personal use.

A touch ironic given that he’s just signed to fight Ortiz again and his claimed tough stance on drugs. Although as you say, I doubt that there’s any performance enhancing aspect to weed.

My worry is that this ridiculous charge could complicate him leaving the country for a Joshua fight. Or, that some other small thing in the future could violate his probation and cause further problems.

Out of curiosity, how are marijuana charges handled in the UK? In Chicago, we’ve finally decriminalized simple possession. This same offense would be nothing more than a small fine here.

He's basically getting punched for pay nowadays.

With that style I'm surprised he didn't quit not long after John Murray did.

I can understand your point. But, I thought the same about his most famous dance partner, Mike Alvarado. Went to see a Michael Conlon fight last year here in Chicago and Alvarado was on the card. Looked really impressive in a knockout against a decent opponent. He’s not fighting world beaters but he has won his last four fights and has looked similar to his prior form. Based on that and the most recent win from Rios, I’m hoping Brandon is capable of the same.

Alvarado and Rios were never world class, but they were very tough. Will never forget the Rios fight against Anthony Peterson. He essentially walked him down and wore him out. Made him panic and foul. Had he not, Rios was going to knock him out.

 I think it will be an interesting fight against Garcia because Garcia does best on the outside. Great counter puncher and walks people into punches. Reminds me a bit of Peterson. I would like to see Rios apply the pressure of old and steal the distance that he needs to be effective. If he can do that, I don’t see Garcia being able to fight his fight. I feel like it would be a great fight for Rios to go out on.

 My worry is that he would win and throw his name in the ring with the top names in the division, which is among the most stacked in boxing. He would get eaten alive by Spence, Thurman, Porter, and probably Brooke. Wish their was a retirement clause attached to this fight.

I think the problem is much more serious than it seems anyone has spotted.
Is it only myself that noticed something when degale was being interviewed a few weeks before at another show???
He seemed confused, distracted like his mind was somewhere else.
Not wanting to speculate but how many hard fights has James had recently in the last few years?
Has a toll been taken?

He definitely sounds punchy but to be fair he’s sounded like that for as long as I can remember. He’s also as thick as a lump of wood.

The only reason he’s relevant is because he was the first person to land a half meaningful shot on Joshua. He went life and death with a washed Chisora and should’ve lost in my opinion.

I think his luck will run out against Browne.

Apparently he is on two years of probation. Could affect his ability to leave the country. Claims it wasn't his. Don't think it really matters, as I don't think think that weed has any serious effect on athletic performance - negative or positive. 

It is completely ridiculous that some states still treat it this so seriously. Was in Colorado a few weeks ago and people were literally smoking it on the streets.
