Considering she was sat ringside with the McGuigans, I find that unlikely.

Eubank Jr is fighting on Channel 5 if anyone's interested.

Also, Billy Joe Saunders is a cock end.

Good fight that, if Eubank Jr. could hit harder he'd be unstoppable...

Eubank Jr has one of the best array of shots I've seen in a boxer, he would be fantastic if he could punch harder. Still has a lot to learn and leaves himself open but I guess that's also the appeal of him.

Unfortunately his opponent is now in an induced coma, hopefully he can recover.

Should be on youtube by the morning. Bet there's some floating around now on Facebook/reddit though.

I reckon he'll face a mandatory challenger first, then fight Haye or Fury. I don't think he'll beat either of them though.

Hearing Forman talk about him today really brought it home about Ali as a person.

So does the Parkinson interview a bit.
Joe Kinnear: "I think they've got some magnificent midfield players; Tiote, Ben Afri, Yohan Kebab, Sissoko are very solid."
