I hope so, it was a joke of a fight from the get go. Tired of seeing clear #1 contenders like Romero and Maia getting screwed over in their respective divisions.

GSP/Bisping may still happen down the line though, just not on the July card. It's been reported many times that Bisping wants nothing to do with Yoel, unless he absolutely HAS to fight him and his hands are completely tied. He'd much rather fight GSP, even if it means he has to wait until early fall.

Joshua vs Klitschko this afternoon at Wembley in front of 90 000 fans.

Joshua is favorite by a small margin. If Joshua can avoid Klitschko's usual bear hug, this should be a great fight.

Seeing two dudes fighting in front of so many people sure is quite a sight. That Joshua kid could really be the future of the division, god knows it needs it.

Wlady has lost a big step, he used to be a lot more active striker.

Instant classic, respect to both fighters. Time for Wlad to say goodbye.

As far as super fights go, this didn't disappoint at all. The giant crowd really made it feel like a big deal. Big props to Wladdy for taking the fight, he had everything to lose but he didn't duck the young guy.

Wlad looked great for being 40. Gave the young buck everything he could handle. Did I hear right during the post-fight interviews that they have a rematch clause in their contract? I thought that's what Wlad said, but maybe he's just blowing smoke.

Absolutely. Lots of respect to both fighters. Been following AJ for a couple years now. Hope he brings boxing back to North America. Such a great sport.

A lot of it rest on the heavyweight division getting back to where it used to be and Joshua can definitely help with that. The casual audience just isn't attracted to the smaller guy fights, which is a real shame. When I was a kid first starting to follow the boxing game, Leonard, Hearns, Hagler and Duran would give people classic fights but the real money making machine ( comparatively speaking) was Tyson. That's just how it is.

Mike was the King until Money destroyed his numbers He holds the top 3 pay per view records all time and his fight against Connor when it happens will probably give him the top 4.

Absolutely the Heavyweight division is the big draw in the states (and canada). But hopefully if that division is strong here in the west the other divisions will gain more followers. Especially with guys like Canelo and Golovkin out there. It's definitely worked that way with me. Following Joshua's career has been an awesome way to get in to boxing again. No more watching highlights of Tyson, Ali etc. on youtube. There are legit fighters out there who are putting on exciting fights! Tonight was a prime example.

Alverez vs Chavez jr. is going to be sick! I can't wait. I also hope Lemieux can knock out Reyes and get a shot against GGG or Alverez/Chavez next.

Main event is expected to be around midnight. Lemieux fight is just before. After 11pm should be pretty safe.
