Sheffield's Galahad was given a backdated two-year doping ban in 2016 that was later cut by six months.

Yep agreed, he's on an impossible-to-get-out-of downward spiral much like Haye was last year. Call it a day son no one cares anymore....

Belfast boxer Michael Conlan has apologised to "the people he offended" by a ring entrance song which contained lyrics supporting the IRA.

He was criticised after the Wolfe Tones' Celtic Symphony, which includes the line "Up the Ra", was played before his St Patrick's Day bout in New York.

"I misjudged the reaction and to the people I offended I definitely apologise," said the featherweight.

Deontay Wilder will face a hearing after the World Boxing Council said his comments about death in the ring are "against the spirit of our sport".

The WBC world heavyweight champion has faced criticism for stating he is "trying to get a body on my record".

WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman said the comments were "regrettable" and against the organisation's ethics.

Wilder, 33, made the comments in the lead up to Saturday's bout with American compatriot Dominic Breazeale.

Billy Joe Saunders won the vacant WBO world super-middleweight title with a unanimous points victory over Shefat Isufi at Stevenage's Lamex Stadium.

The former WBO middleweight belt holder joined the list of two-weight world champions in dominant style, showing punch variety and classy movement.

The 29-year-old was briefly wobbled by a right hand in the sixth round but found poise again to capture the belt.

Judges scored the fight 120-108 117-111 118-110 in favour of the Englishman.

Whatever you think of Wilder as a boxer, he has amazing speed and power. Not sure Joshua would have got up from that punch...

True but then AJ wouldn't have been struck by that punch in the first place. Breazeale looked way out of his depth right from the off.

It's really quite tiring with all this pussyfooting around between the "big 3" now, no-one cares about whoever Fury & AJ are fighting next. I think Whyte deserves another shot against one of them though, he's come on leaps & bounds since his defeat to AJ...

Anthony Joshua's fight on Saturday. Should be a comfortable win for him.

Anyone else unfortunate enough to watch the Hughie Fury fight on Saturday night on Channel 5, it wasn't the best that's for sure.

Andy Ruiz Jr has beaten Antony Joshua in a 7th round stoppage! Antony Joshua has lost the IBF, WBO and WBA world heavyweight championships, I never in a million years would have thought that Joshua would lose this fight and now the plans to face Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder have been messed up now.
