Joshua to fight Charles Martin for IBF World title on 9th April. Looks like he'll have to fight at a high level if he wins that one.

I think Martin's team pushed for this fight, to be honest an opportunity Joshua could not turn down, if he wins which I think he will he will lose his protection as a prospect and will have to keep stepping up in class, if he does lose he can fall back on the chance came too soon but it was a chance he had to take. I still think he is a bit off Fury and Wilder but 18 months down the line he should beat them both. The one to look out for is Joseph Parker from New Zealand, he could be capable of beating all of the above.

Yeah both showed a lot of respect early on. Think Quigg was comfortable but forgot to throw anything back so can only blame himself for falling so far behind. I thought Frampton shaded it but not by as much as 4 rounds.

Nah me neither, I'd have had it 115 v 113. Thought Quigg was better in the 7th-11th rounds and there was definitely more excitement (if you could call it that!) in those rounds, but his lack of urgency in the first 6 really cost him. As you say, he was comfortable, but he wasn't returning anything. I'd fancy him in a rematch, I don't think he'd show Frampton so much respect second time round.

Leo Santa Cruz and Terrence Crawford both won by TKO tonight.. neither fighter is the best in their own division.. but both are on a different level to where Frampton is now... maybe in a couple of years he might be ready.. I've never thought Quigg would ever get up to the elite level... that was a great payday for him today. Frampton get's annihilated by Rigo and loses clearly to LSC if they fight anytime soon. He'd be daft not to offer Quigg a rematch in Belfast.. plenty folk would forget that it took 8 rounds to get started and would fork out for the PPV again thinking a rematch would be completely different.

He's arguably the best boxer on the planet, he certainly has a lot more talent than Mayweather. I'd personally put Roman Gonzalez and Golovkin ahead of him though.

He's fighting in Liverpool in a couple of weeks.. he's the most talented boxer to fight in the UK for a very long time. He's just so annoying to watch.. he's hardly changed from his amateur days.... he'll happy connect with only 5 shots and dance around the ring for 3 minutes if it means he only gets hit twice. He's had plenty of chances to become relevant... including being on a recent Cotto PPV card.. He was getting roundly booed from about the 2nd round onwards.

It says it all about boxing at the moment though how he doesn't hold a world title when yesterday Quigg, Frampton and Santa Cruz all had a version of it and Kiko Martinez was fighting for one.

Joe Gallagher got the tactics spot on, barroso ( if that's how it's spelt ) could clearly hit very hard, punched himself out but an absolutely brilliant performance by crolla, the final body shot looked like one of those that doesn't catch the eye but took the final bit of fight barroso had left in him.

Didn't think he would win tonight, great performance and looked a top atmosphere.

God knows how the Swiss judge had Chisora as a winner! That early fight between the lad from Colne - Singleton and the Leeds lad was a good one as well.

Looking forward to Murray/Groves, would have tried go to that but the O2 puts me off.

Didn't see the earlier fights only caught the last two, agreed the Swiss judge was clearly having a laugh, 115-113 chisora? I wouldn't of give him more than two rounds.

Going to go with a groves win but think Murray will be a good test

Surely that's Khan done in the States now? All that's left for the clown, is a bout against Sheffields finest. Be a step up for Kell mind, instead of fighting the usual bums.

Crolla did well last night, but that other kid beat himself.

Errol Graham coming out of retirement then? Id take him to win on points unless Khan stops him late.

Looking forward to giving it a watch later. Watched a bit of Santa Cruz yesterday and thought this was winnable for Frampton. LSC just doesn't seem to make use of his own height/range, comes in low and fights inside with much smaller fighters.

Still a bit miffed with Frampton for swerving Rigondeaux at previous weight but Selby, Russell jr, Mares fights will be fun if they happen.

Frampton was class last night in a very close fight that could have been given either way. His movement early on was too slick but as the fight went on Santa Cruz was landing more and more.

I'd be surprised if we see Chisora back on Matchroom/Sky after nearly taking out Hearn/Smith with a table and having a go at them afterwards. Wouldn't be surprised if BBBOC refuse to licence him again, sure they took action after the Haye ruckus following the Vitali fight. He seems an OK guy but just can't control himself sometimes.

Whyte genuinely comes across as an uneducated scumbag. Not the first time he has made threats about 'seeing people on the street'.

All plays into the promoters hands, in fact Hearn was seen in camera grinning afterwards.

Drama like this only serves to promote the fight.

Aside from that Chisora is finished, he can't beat anyone decent and will quickly disappear.

You can always rely on Del Boy for some presser shenanigans. I don't really see the point of this fight other than for Del Boy to hand over his gate keeper role to Dillian who is at best a European level fighter and an unlikeable whiny character. If Del Boy brings his a game he will have to much for Whyte but to be honest it will probably come down to who gasses first.

The most embarrassing thing about this type of thing is the people who buy into it, as if it's not just one big pantomime.

Exactly the same with UFC, they play up to get coverage and people are dumb enough to think it's personality.

Think some is staged but not it all, to be fair to these fighters they ain't half dedicated and they must be pretty hyped up after putting in so much effort in their lives to get where they are.

Never been a Boxer or involved in the Sport at all pal, no idea if the promoters put a lot of pressure on their fighters etc to do this kind of stuff.

Personally I think Chisora is a headcase and would do this kind of crap if he wasn't a Boxer.

They have taken their belt off the line and fined Chisora £25k so seems unlikely. They have refused to licence him before and will do again by the sounds of it. Suspect this fight would have been canned if it wasn't a Matchroom/Sky/PPV effort.

To be fair the UK now has more World Champions than any other country.. and also we have more world champions than any other country has ever had. Saying that though there are more sanctioning bodies, more weight divisions and more versions of a world title than there has ever been.

As a huge boxing fan myself it is a shame to watch all this WWF nonsense/jebenderey at UK press conferences.... especially when you see folk like Eddie Hearn doing his best not to hide his smile and his eyeballs lighting up with pound signs.

They took the BBBofC on before with Chisora and won... they can always get a licence from another EU country... it was Luxembourg last time. Throwing a WWF/Royal Rumble plastic table won't change that.

Anyone watch Lomachenko last week? Improving every fight... wasn't ranked in any p4p lists last week but this time next year I think he'll be in most folks top 3... and could possibly be the most talented fighter in my lifetime so far.

Don't recall many people (if any) saying it wouldn't possibly make a half decent fight. Not having watched any of last nights Boxing, I'd like to know what people's thoughts were on the main event?

Molina was a bum who turned up for a pay check. He was beat before the first bell rang and looked terrified. He hardly threw a punch and once Joshua found his range it was goodnight Vienna
Disappointing but expected. At least his next fight will be a test as they announced klitchko in April
