  • This is another really good fight on paper if it goes through. Love unifications but pretty much anytime you have an undisputed/unified champion and you start breaking those belts up, you get some really good fights. The one for the IBF, Ponce – Matias could be a great one.

  • Being a Brit myself, I wonder how Davies will cope with the Panamanian heat? I was in Jamaica a few days ago and I was wilting. It’s around 30°C/86°F at 10am.
