Fury fighting tonight on C5. Show starting now, guess the Fury fight will be not long after 10'ish.

Johnson has never been stopped before either, even against Klitschko.
Should be interesting and a lot more competitive than the crap mismatches that David Price is involved in at the moment.

Eubank junior puts together some good punches and moves well, but he needs to cut out some very basic mistakes.

Definitely heading in the right direction and one to watch.

Eubank Jr looks like he has a serious future.

In stark contrast we now have Tyson Fury.

I like fury. Not sure why crowd are booing. His opponent is a tough one who has never been stopped even vitali couldn't stop him.

I'd still take Fury to beat Price if they fight anytime soon.

At least Fury is fighting credible opponents and improving.

Not an exciting performance tonight, but a patient and professional one against a world ranked opponent.

Price is becoming a joke as far as I am concerned. Sooner or later he will have to fight someone who actually hits back.

I agree about Price but i really don't rate Fury at all. Will no doubt be proved wrong though!

Johnson is a tough fighter. The crowd want fury to fight like his other fights but when you step up you can't do that otherwise you get knocked out. He did a professional job tonight.

A good win for Fury against a rock solid opponent. Agree with the poster above about the booing. The crowd are really thick and know nothing if they think that was bad.

I thought it was a really mature performance from Fury tonight. I gave him all but one round.

I really don't know why Fury gets so much criticism while people are raving about someone like Price who hasn't fought a single credible opponent yet.

Price is stiff and robotic. At least Fury has a bit of movement and variety.

Ive seen far worse fights than that. Not sure what they expected. Maybe they didn't know who Johnson was.

Im not promoting Price by saying i don't like Fury!

I just don't rate Fury.

Having said that we see boxers on tv much earlier in their development these days so maybe I'm just being harsh. Time will tell i guess.

Does anyone know what channel the Pacquiao-Marquez fight will be on? Is it even being shown by any UK broadcasters?

Primetime are showing it.

'Only 14.95'. Yeah, to watch it in standard definition at 5am. No thanks.

Thanks. I'm kind of tempted, good quality streams are proving difficult to get these days...

You lot need to get a 1metre dish pointed at 26e (Sky is broadcast from 28.2e) because JSC Sports show big fights live for free and in English (they had Cotto on last night) or point a normal sized Sky dish at 13e and buy a Al Jazeera sports card for 80 a year, they show a lot of top boxing as well.

How does that work? Do you have a second dish? What STB do you use for that?

Cantona there are many ways to do it but a second dish is as easy a method as any. There are many different types of stb, but you will need one that has a card reader, technomate are a very good and reliable make.

Eubank Jr is progressing at an impressive rate.

He beat a decent opponent whilist himself being only a 7 fight novice & to top that off, he's fighting again next weekend, which is unheard of in modern boxing.

The old-timers used to fight every week or so, but modern fighters just don't do that.

I have a 2nd dish which is a 1m motorised dish, with a 50 silvercrest receiver from Lidl, I can get feeds on that as well, for example the Flintoff fight had a free feed on 24.5w.

Cotto should retire. He didn't exactly take a Manny Pacquiao beating, but that was a fight that he would have won 2 years ago. Time has caught up with him and I don't see who he beats at 154 who is credible. His punches seemed to lack the pop they once had and he is not a good 12 round fighter, he is usually on his bike after round 8.
