**Spoiler**












Frustrated is an understatement. Rigo stank the place out from the start and then quit when it werenít going his way. Couldíve and shouldíve been such a great fight turned into one of the worst Iíve ever seen.

Awful fight, First round both were feeling each other out but as the rounds went on Rigo just buckled under the pressure from Loma.

Bit snidey wasn't it.

Considering the Degale fight against Jack, it's a very disappointing result, as that was a great fight, and Jack is very good.

Loma/Rigo


Very disappointing fight, Rigo made a decision to call time on the fight rather than suffer the indignity of losing embarrassingly widely on the cards. He wasn't getting hurt, he wasn't taking many punches himself, but he wasn't winning anything and he was struggling to land his big left hand which was imperative to him.

Sounds utterly ridiculous to question his heart after so many years of success in the ring, but he certainly didn't go do or die in there. His back wasn't up against the wall, he didn't allow the wall to get even close. But he was undersized and against someone as gifted as Loma it mattered. A tactical retreat really. But such a disappointment though there was always a possibility it'd fail to deliver.

Truax/Degale

Sad night in that Degale lost to a guy who'd not even have troubled him a few fights back. It appeared like he's got a bum shoulder, whether that was a mental block or whether physical only he knows. He said he felt no pain, but he wasn't throwing it so something wasn't right....but if he can't punch properly with the right hand then he's reached the end of the line.

It was close'ish because Truax is so unremarkable and Degale was able to flurry at times to keep it in the balance, but overall Truax was trying to win whilst Degale was trying not to lose so the right decision. He said afterwards that he wants the rematch but needs to address issues within his camp....not sure what that means but it might be too late anyway if he can't commit to his right hand anymore.

If and its a big 'IF' his shoulder is okay going forward, then he certainly has the beating of Truax and there are still plenty of attractive British options for him against Groves/Eubank/Smith. He's still in a good position to fight the Super series winner because they'll be looking for a big name opponent and all of them will see him as an easyish mark after watching him last night. But he'd be a fool to continue with his career if he would be doing so in essence handicapped, guess we'll find out soon what he intends to do. Thought Groves tweets were very c*ntish tbh. Retweeting Jack was fairly pathetic really.

Farmer/Ogawa

Farmer was robbed blind, nothing much else to say. The Japanese fighter was tough and could see he had the potential to be dangerous if allowed to get into his groove. But Farmer just outskilled and outslicked him and was ripped off by horrendous judging. The sport is being destroyed by these decisions.

Watched the farmer fight this morning and once the last bell went I didnít wait to listen to the cwrdscas it was such a formality... how on Earth they gave that to the Japanese kid is beyond me, he won a couple of rds at best. Horrible result.

Judges will probably score this 60-54 to Benn if it goes the distance.

Just watched it, the commentating or should I say cheerleading is sickening.

Through the fight, originally calling the second knockdown a trip, over emphasizing evenrything Benn did, constant references to his Dad. Reaching for any praise they could give so it didnít look as bad as it was.

I thought Benn did well to be honest mate.
He didnít fight well obviously but showed massive heart to stay with it and force the decision.
Brilliant scrap.
