Well with Haye - none of the others want to fight him. If he holds a belt he becomes a better option to fight.

With Fury - looking to take all the belts, the more he holds the bigger pay day he can get with the unification belt.

History repeating itself. Eubank has put Nick Blackwell into a coma, not looking for him.

Just watched the fight, Blackwell was a warrior and kept coming back for more. Eubank Snr screaming for the fight to be stopped and even told his son to target the body as Blackwell was going to get seriously hurt.

Looks like England will be losing one of it's heavyweight champions quite soon. Could this open up an opportunity for David Haye?

Wasn't bad from what I saw (didn't see whole fight). Klitschko seems to be past his best but a decent win all the same.

If Fury can get a licence then him. Then, Wilder/Parker.

AJ spoke about it after the fight and Fury responded via Twitter along the lines of "challenge accepted, let's dance".

Yes

I think the world also wants to see a rematch of this one as well. That would surely be on the cards.

Not seen the fight but I'm shocked. I thought that despite his age he'd beat him with one arm behind his back. Did he try that and that's how he won?

Australian fox sports had Pacquaio winning the fight, one of the judges had Horn winning 117-111 :shock:

Pacquaio also landed VERY CLOSE to double the amount of punches

Thoughts?

Amazingly lopsided looking at that. Horn should be clinically dead if those numbers were right.

ESPN would be a pretty decent source I'd have thought. Did you see the fight? What did you think?

Watched the whole thing now - no problem with decision - could have gone either way.

That's what a lot of experts are saying which makes the 117-111 scorecard a bit strange.
