    Sunny Edwards Fights Moruti Mthalane today.

    Big day for boxing tomorrow, Chisora Vs. Parker and Ruiz Vs. Arreola this Saturday in boxing if anyone is interested since there is nothing relevant to us from a CF perspective.

    Bivol fights also tomorrow, forgot to mention.

    You also have Lara vs Lamanna on the free side of Fox before the Mexican fiesta PPV. Cornflake Lamanna is a very long shot of 23 to 1 so he should get out boxed.

    A few posters regard Ruiz as White with a small amount of Native ancestry(I tend to fall into this camp).

    Katie Taylor also fights tomorrow on the Parker vs Chisora fight.

    PS Parker is only around a 8 to 5 favorite to beat Chisora who hasn't won a big fight in years. Chisora gives a good fight and comes close but in the end he has been found wanting against top 10 fighters.

    You could very well be correct with Ruiz, though he looks somewhat Mestizo facially (being chubby may exaggerate it) and isn't typically perceived as white even by non-Mexicans so I classified him as nonwhite.

    I haven't heard of LaManna, but he seems to be a white American, Erislandy was last seen fighting a very tough but green Greg Vendetti who was not on his level.

    Andy Ruiz will destroy Arreola tomorrow night. He is down to 255 lbs from the fat slob condition he showed up on the second Joshua fight. If wins in devastation fashion, he will in the top 3 heavyweights in the World. BTW, he appears to look more Spaniard than native Mexican. I can not see this fight going more that 7 rounds without the towel being thrown in to save Chris.

    Crackstreams.com has been working like a champ for me over the past six months in watching PPV fights BTW.

    Yeah that's my site of choice as well, they have many different domains under different TLDs so if one doesn't work well you can use another.

    Especially if you have objections to supporting certain companies such as the UFC and it's
    favoristic treatment/fetishism of blacks, ill-treatment of many European fighters, selective recruitment etc...

    I see the fight similarly, I'm not even sure the prime Arreola of around 08' to 09' would do much with Ruiz, but Chris should get beaten to a pulp, similar to the Wilder loss.

    PS, Sunny Edwards is the new IBF flyweight champion, he joins his brother as flyweight champion, he clearly dominated but poor referee Ian John Lewis had it 115-113. The South African was as old as dirt at 38 going on 39 which is the equivalent of 48 going on 49 at heavyweight.

    Bivol had to fight a black "English" fighter who did not come to lay down. It was competitive. But there are levels at the elite level. Bivol two levels ahead. He is small Lightheavy weight. He would be a terror at 168 lbs IMO. Unfortunately the cash cow Canelo will not take the risk and rightfully so.

    Ruiz had a little wake-up call in the 2nd with Chris dropping him. But he adjusted and won the majority of the rounds. I think if he comes in at 245 lbs that will be his ideal weight, in terms of footwork and explosiveness. Chris did give a great effort. Father time knocking at his door.

    Didn't get to catch the Ruiz fight as it overlapped with the UFC's main event, but it's an expected outcome. Parker apparently only won a controversial split decision against Chisora which increases the stock of Usyk's UD win, would still be worried about his power and punch resistance against very big or powerful HWs, Usyk seemed to hurt Chisora a few times in that fight.

    I thought it was a tough night at the office for Ruiz as he got dropped and rocked repeatedly in the first 3 rounds but after that he slowly took control as Chris couldn't really trade with Ruiz as he had the slower hands but he was disciplined counter punching between Ruiz bursts. After the wing injury from a punch the fight was all but over as Arreola couldn't gauge distance with his right to land on Ruiz with the maximum force.

    As for the other fights Corn flake fought like the soggy corn flake at the bottom of your breakfast cereal bowl and was ko'd badly in the first round.

    Katie Taylor pounded out a hard fought decision over a British Mulatto amateur rival and I saw the Parker vs Chisora fight and Parker looks like he peaked out years ago and is what he is but he won't be a serious challenger against whomever is the lineal champion after the dust clears with the Fury vs Joshua showdowns.
