What do you think about this Red? I saw some of the press conference and I wasn't convinced. It just seemed to be a lot of hyperbole without much meat on the bone. The idea sounds good and the money sounds huge but until some names are signed up I'm not sure. Being realistic some of Hearn's shows over her (non PPV) are piss poor so unsure about how much substance will be on some of the shows

I suppose we have to wait and see at the end of the day.

There have been some huge sums thrown at sh*t fights over the years (Dawson vs Tarver, then the rematch etc) which have neither sold tickets nor have attracted a television audience.

It's almost like a tv company has so much money to spend according to their CEO and executive shareholders per year, and if they dont spend it they lose it elsewhere.

American television is weird. They often put stuff on without any merit.

Bit of an awkward one really. The area round Elland Road isn't particularly nice. The Drysalters just round the corner from the ground wasn't too bad last time I went to footy as an away fan.

Best bet is to get a taxi from the city centre, where there are plenty of nice bars.

When there, it depends what you want really. If you like a 'proper' beer, Scarborough Hotel and Brewery Tap near the station are worth a look. My top tip for afternoon beers is Aire Bar. It's usually not too busy, does cracking beer and food, has sport on and overlooks the river, so it's ideal. After the fight, I'd get a cab back to the Northern Quarter. There's a few nice late bars and less knobheads than your obvious city centre boozers.

Thanks for that mate, much appreciated.

Will have a look at Aire Bar on the Saturday I think, looks good online. Just want somewhere not to mad busy to watch FA Cup Final and then probably make tracks over to the ground not long after that finishes up.

Undercard doesn’t fill me with much excitement.

Think I definitely want Selby to win now with Warrington’s irritating behaviour in the build up and never a fan of the Leeds lot (still asking myself why i am going now!).

Don’t think Warrington has come across to well in the build up to this. Selby telling him nobody outside of Leeds wants him to win and losing fans, I’d imagine is not far from the truth.

Josh is definitely putting too much into this “atmosphere on the night”. When asked anything about the fight that’s all he responds with.

I for one would love Selby to win and maybe stop him.

I have been talked in to going on Saturday, although this will only be my 2nd Stadium (unfortunately went to Calzaghe v Manfredo Jr.) as I tend to avoid them.

Do have a feeling Warrington may do it on Saturday, although if Selby turns up how we know he can and can keep Warrington at distance then he should have the better skills.

Anyway just wondering if anyone familiar with the Leeds area closer to Elland Road or on the way could recommend any pubs / bars that are not shitholes?

Cheers

Warrington fans were kicking off amongst themselves on the Abraham v Smith undercard in Berlin when his fight was on at something like 6pm. I can’t see there not being trouble on Saturday particularly if Selby handles him with ease. And it’s not like W***** shows have a great reputation when it comes to security either.

Harrogate or York are nice - probably don't want to be going any closer

I think Selby wins this comfortably to start a riot at Bellend Road, although I did think they same about Haye over Bellew so what do I know

Gem of a fight, highlight of the year for me. Good start by Linares then Lomachenko took over and started to look special, it looked like he was taking the fight away from Linares. Then the shock of the knockdown, I had Lomachenko winning that round so did only score it 10-9, but that was a moment. Linares produced some terrific stuff, at times it looked like it really started to hit him what he was facing but of course he had the knockdown and some of his typical blistering combinations, definitely showed his quality.

There was great stuff from both fighters throughout that got a reaction out of me, probably none more so than Lomachenko being knocked down that I really didn't see coming, especially after he was having a strong spell. Like Gaz I didn't see the knockout blow, Lomachenko was teeing off on him just before that and I did worry for Linares but did not anticipate that one blow would seal it. Fitting to the man the shot was delivered at such expert level, looking at the replay where I had chance to actually see it, Linares seemed pretty well tucked up (despite taking a few snapping shots to the head) but Lomachenko placed it perfectly round the elbow.

It was devastating, I wondered about Linares reaction watching live but after watching the replay that shot looked like it took everything from him. 

I may talk about future options and perhaps Lomachenko's limits another time but for now I'm just going to appreciate a great fight and another special performance.

I pay for boxnation but because it meant staying up all night and ruining my day I came to watch it in the app in the morning.
Guess what boxnation is shit and the app didn't have it on so I had to watch it for free on YouTube.
So may as well cancel my subscription and just watch on YouTube. Come on tech guys get your shit sorted.
