I thought Fury had just about done enough to win it, but he was very poor. Ngannou won his rounds quite convincingly which is making people think he got robbed

Fair play to Ngannou. He faced a lot of criticism for not taking that UFC deal (24m over 3 fights) but stuck it out and has gotten a huge deal with the PFL and earned a fortune for this fight with Fury. Going close means he’ll be an even bigger draw for the PFL. He wasn’t a big PPV seller with the UFC but this should help him make even more money.

Hard to not be happy for him considering his back story.

He'll also be a top 10 ranked boxer and the likes of Usyk, Joshua and wilder will probably offer him a fight in future to continue making a fortune.

These crossover fights need to stop. They are marketed as being proper events but in reality the results are already pre determined.
That was a disgraceful scorecard last night. Fury was like a lad who never boxed in his life, yet somehow won...a disgrace. 

Fair Play to Ngannou looked a nice fighter, if he gave boxing a go he could do serious damage.

Scorecard issues happen in non exhibition fights and personally I think the judge's got it right. Francis won his rounds convincingly but Fury done enough to shade it. 95/94 was a fair decision.

Boxing is rife with dodgy scorecards bordering on corruption, so it’s not an issue related to these crossover fights. But unless it was a ko, there was no way Ngannou was getting a decision, especially with Usyk there to promote his fight with Fury, which will be on in Saudi.

If it had been a bad loss, no other boxer would have gone near Ngannou but now big money fights are available for him. Again, fair play to him. I’d say Dana White is sick.

I’ve seen Gary Cully box 3 times now and have been disappointed every time.

It's mad I'd heard nothing about Taylor fighting until I seen a tweet from McGregor earlier. It feels like Irish media and social media doesn't hype her up enough or maybe I live in a bubble.

You follow some bellends LOL
Seriously though McGregor sponsoring this was a mistake from Hearn. Him & his nonsense have overshadowed the build up.

Katie is wrecked. She just has to survive this last round and she has it. Unreal fight
