  • I feel like fights just don’t exist anymore. I’ve paused my DAZN account for a few months. I don’t spend Saturday nights like I used to preparing to watch Championship fights. It feels like we’re being fed imaginary matchups that never materialize in the end.. then replaced by other fights I would’ve never went out of my way to see. Boxing is just a bunch of buildups.. I might as well use my imagination and enjoy it in my head. It’s been a long time since boxing has gotten me excited. The only one coming up that seems interesting is Tim Tszyu. But after I made plans to watch him fight that was canceled too. I’m just bored of boxing.. now I’m looking forward to adesanya getting revenge

  • This fight and Crazy A – Nery on the same damn day! Two very good fights on paper. I’m going with Lara here, but I definitely think Wood can make it interesting and maybe scare Lara a bit. Lara doesn’t take the best body shot, if I’m Wood, that’s where I’m aiming, but we’ll see.
