I have also wondered if whether Lockett got things wrong by pulling Williams out and not asking for the doctor? Can the corner ask for The Doctor to judge whether the injury is severe enough to pull the fighter out>

If Doctor said fight over then Williams would have won on the scorecards by 1 round (unless the partial 10th round was scored to Smith).

Smith didn't fight well last time as a result I think of underestimating the threat that Williams posed.....having said that he still won, and to be honest I think he was coming on and would have overhauled Williams even without Williams suffering the cut.

I know that Smith didn't fight upto his optimum, but I wonder if perhaps Williams did.
Smith was sluggish but did show composure to keep his cool when he got cut, whereas Williams didn't react well when he started to bleed. But I think the tide had turned anyway and the cut was sort of the final straw for him. If he'd still been in the ascendancy I don't think Lockett would have stopped it, but I think Lockett could see the writing was perhaps on the wall for his man.

Its an excellent matchup......Williams is a talented fighter, but I think that Smith is the more robust both mentally and physically. And I do think that Smith will come in with more respect this time and we'll see his intensity and performance levels ratcheted up. He'll still probably have some issues with Williams speed and boxing ability early on, but I think he'll start to get at him earlier and when the smoke clears he'll score another TKO somewhere between 8-11.

As above I'm not convinced that Smith can do much better but I think Williams has some more development in him as long as he keeps his aggression in check.

I'm going up to Newcastle for this one, Ringside tickets for the same price as a dire Joshua ticket so worth it imo.

There's also the question marks over Smith making the weight too. Williams looks in fantastic shape from what I've seen.

I fancy Williams this time. I think Smith had the one game plan last time and don't think he can change it this time round.

I also hope WIlliams wins as Smith acted like a cock after he won last time out

How does everyone see the rematch going?  Williams was certainly producing the better boxing last time out before the cut when Smith started to take over.  Williams will have the extra motivation after being stopped but I imagine it will be a close one if the fight stays free of head clashes.

After his display against Fury Iím not sure Parker adds a huge amount now. Obviously it would be good to see a fight for the undisputed heavyweight championship but as things stand I donít think a win over Parker really ups the interest in AJ v Wilder at all.

The win not so much, Parker has looked poor for 3 consecutive fights now.....but the WBO belt does matter.
That's Parker's bargaining chip and he knows it.

You'd think that both sides should feel the pressure to make the fight.

Every other era made the defining fights of the time. The heavyweight scene isn't exactly awash with talent and they're already out of other people to fight.

Lewis/Bowe fell by the wayside because the American didn't fancy it.

I do think though that Wilder fancies his chances, its just how realistic will he be when it comes to negotiations.....but him wanting 7 million to fight Whyte isn't a promising omen.

Really both should be falling over themselves to get to Parker first and strengthen their position. That is especially true for Wilder, if he could get his hands on that WBO strap then his position would be bolstered massively. Perhaps we'll see a bidding war for a Parker fight get underway.
