Was a decent enough card. Most fights enjoyable, still wouldn’t have paid €25 for it mind

Interesting comments from Michael Martin. Won't be a big boxing event any time soon because they are too risky according to the guards. 

Pretty sure boxing events in London and New York, etc. would also attract gangs. Crazy in my opinion that it is a complete NO. Makes our police force and security readiness look very weak if they cannot entertain the hosting of a big boxing event

It felt like Martin was playing to the crowd with little actual knowledge on the topic.
There have been televised pro-boxing shows in Ireland in the past couple of years but the reason they seem to have stopped is the rising cost of insurance due to Brexit.

Looking forward to the fight early tomorrow morning, think BJS will stand his ground well, the problem is that;

He's fighting Canelo, in Texas, on the weekend of Cinco De Mayo. Canelo could sit in his corner for 12 rounds and still get a decision win.

6/4 for a Canelo decision win I've gone for.

Can't see Saunders knocking Canelo out and like you said can't see him getting a decision.  
Think it will be a good tactical fight but also think Canelo by UD

Don't see it being an entertaining fight. It'll be interesting to see how Canelo handles it though, as he's usually an aggressive counter puncher, but Saunders won't be coming towards him.

He has to. Which makes the fight interesting, 70,000 people in the AT&T Stadium on this weekend of all weekends, they may aswell be in the streets of Mexico City because he's getting absolutely nothing his way once the bell rings.

As Randy said he's not a big puncher, so how does he win? That's why Canelo 1/6.. It's close to an impossible job.

Canelo doesn't tire either as he's fond of the good ol contaminated Mexican meat, I would of put money on a late stoppage but Evens doesn't seem like a good price for it.
