1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    yeah off the two, I feel like Ward is the one that can evolve and adapt

    but then again Kovalev isn't a slouch and he probably isn't going to look for the decision to do him in again so he'll be gunning for Ward head

    it's going to be an interesting fight, I just hope it isn't ppv

    I'm not gonna watch it. Fight is in Vegas. Those judges favor the clinch, hold and hit school that Ward brings to the table. Ward will avoid engaging with Kovalev all 12 rounds. And, the judges will lap it up.

    wow

    one of the best heavyweight fights in a while?

    Wlad just didn't throw enough there once he got the knockdown but it felt like he could have finished Joshua

    Joshua set up that brutal right uppercut masterfully. Agreed, Klitschko's punch output was too low to effectively slow Joshua down. Good action and good fight.

    Amazing, amazing fight.

    The cut slowed him down. If he hadn't been cut he would've finished Joshua with a left hook IMO, but he couldn't time it properly because he couldn't see out of his left eye. Or if he'd gone to the body.

    Reckon Joshua is vulnerable though.

    Agreed. Great fight.

    Not the fight I was expecting. I thought Wlad was going to go "Bernard Hopkins" and jab and clinch to hold off the young bull. But Wlad came to fight. I don't think Wlad will retire, but if he does, that's a great way to go out.
