Well done to Anthony on his victory yesterday but he was far from impressive this time around and the stoppage was premature.

All credit to Carlos for making it such a tough bout however.

I think Joshua needs to lose at least a stone - as many of today's massive heavyweight juggernauts seem to have a problem with their stamina due to the sheer bulk they are moving about.

They are just too big.

But he is still a novice in professional terms and has plenty of time to iron out his more glaring weaknesses.

I was reading about Frankel the racehorse and his stud fees will go up by 40% next year.

So that means if you want a little Frankel it will cost you £175,000

That's nothing compared to the stud fees of Galileo who is Frankel's dad.

His services are rumoured to be £350,000.

Why a welter coming back after five years inactivity beats the toughest middle of then and wins -115 - 113 (on my card) - and proves he is the best of all time since Robinson.

Boy him and Tommy - incredible era. :cuppaT:

Great win for Josh Taylor on CH5 last night - the kid has only had 11 pro fights and looks to belong in top world class already - great jab, power in both hands, speed, superb footwork and a solid chin.

If he is not rushed Josh could be one of the greatest fighters Scotland has ever produced - and perhaps the best since Buchanan.

Also the respect shown by both after their excellent bout was lovely to watch - Josh offering to take a smiling Vasquez out for a swift pint. :cuppaT:
