Not a robbery but Whyte looked more gassed, however, he snatched the last rounds with some nasty hooks and uppercuts and that did it for me. Could have been a draw but you cannot set AJ vs. Dillian with that result, obviously.

Whyte didn’t look great did he, he didn’t seem to be on his game. Whether that’s due to his new trainer, lack of prep or the tough fights are catching up on him.

I don’t see that, if his opponent is anyone other than Usyk.

Id be tempted to get AJ and whyte out in Feb or march against different opponents and then fight each other in june in wembeley. AJ vs whyte can be massive but hard to sell when both are coming off 2 poor preformances each.

I guess they can bury those poor performances with Beef and fight 1 highlights, the public will forget reality pretty quick with that going on.

Throughout most of the fight I felt Whyte could've ended it if he'd stepped it up like Wardley did, at the same time as thinking he'd have been in trouble if Franklin had heavier hands. One wasn't nearly busy enough, the other not hurtful enough.

Small, fat, counter combinations, fast hands and a good chin... but not Ruiz's power.

Joyce , Hrgovic or Zhang for AJ would have more appeal for me .

It's on Radio 5 live as well if that helps.
Thanks man, I finally got a decent bite on the line though.

Terrible performance by Whyte. Buddy McGirt is not the trainer for him. I can see what McGirt has been trying to do with him- tighten up his defence to protect his shaky mandible and jab more- but you could see Whyte couldn't execute this and McGirt was screaming repeatedly all through the late rounds "STAY IN YOUR SHELL! STAY IN YOUR SHELL!"

When Dillian tried to do that, sure he blocked a lot of shots but ate plenty too.

Conversely when he went back to being a sloppy swinger is when he actually had success.

I really wasn't scoring it, because I find scoring fights boring nowadays, but I could see how you make the argument that Franklin won that. The urgency in Whyte's corner and the confidence in Franklin's tells it's own story, despite Whyte grinning like an idiot through his instructions like he thought he had it in the bag.

For someone who is so often called a slightly better Chisora, with the cross-arm defence he fought more like Chisora than ever tonight, but the shit, low energy version of Chisora and the more rejuvenated version of his later career.

If that wasn't in the UK that would have gone another way.

What so all Ruiz would have to do is knuckle down a bit and he’d win a rubber match with Joshua?

Okay.

Yup , even the fat slobbering mess in the rematch gave him enough problems for him to be constantly on his bike .

So how comes he performed better in the rematch with Usyk? Surely he’d just be on a downward spiral.

Keep dreaming, mate. None of those names are a foregone conclusion and I wouldn't be surprised if any of them beat him. I back Joyce to beat him right now and think Hrgovic has more in him than he showed against Zhang, who's a big powerful durable f*cker that might give AJ one of his famous panic attacks if he sticks in there longer than 9 rounds.

I'd be amazed if it wasn't Whyte next.

I was telling someone this afternoon that Whyte has a lot of miles on the clock, even more now.

Whyte has been overated for years. but Povetkin really took his soul, from that point on he has been more timmid and now he is so scared of getting uppercutted into the shadow relm that he is fighting with his arms crossed...

My guess is AJ retires whyte. but then again whyte seems to have a bit of chisora about him, mabey he will keep trying

Whyte vs ruiz or Whyte vs parker II or whyte vs wilder will all still be massive fights untill whyte is 50.... Chisora III would work too (Id have whyte underdog in all of them).

Ruiz isn't quite good enough to beat a host of heavyweights, but he's an outstanding threat against any who turn up below par.

On Whyte's recent form you'd say revenge is there for Parker if he wants it. But yeah, it's AJ next. Chisora gets stopped, and then Whyte gets stopped, and all the while Usyk's champ.

I doubt Whyte will ever have another good performance.

If they want a guaranteed good performance from AJ in his next fight, It'll be Whyte.

It's nothing I'm interested in by the way: it's marginally more compelling than Fury Chisora 3, but of a similar standard. AJ easily beat Whyte first time around, and Whyte is shot now. It's a final payday for him. I don't begrudge him it. It's just, none of the money will be coming from me.

Right, off to bed.

Another Whyte opponent moaning that he didn’t get the notice he would’ve liked. I honestly think he’d have lost about 5 more fights if his opponents got as much notice as he did & there were neutral refs & judges

Dillian needs an exit strategy from the sport - he looked like a mess tonight and would get massacred by the next fighter with any type of fire power

What a joke. 116-113 for Franklin with the sixth round even.

Dillian Whyte has never been an elite level heavyweight for me. His best win was against a faded Povetkin, but a fight more significant than that was the loss against the Russian.

Franklin got robbed. I hate this sport.

Didn't score it as I was flicking back and forth with Ryder fight. Whyte looks shot to **** Payday against AK and retirement next
