    Good, this was a shit fight anyway

    Make Takam vs Usyk as originally planned; I forgot why that fight was scrapped in the first place.

    Spong should be allowed to be on anything he wants for this match.

    You’re rooting for a takam match?
    At least spong accomplished a lot in kickonoxing. At least their intrigue in that.

    I’m not rooting for takam to fight any top guy.
    As he’s lost to any decent to top fighter he has ever faced.

    Takam... aahhhaaa!

    Takam was tired of waiting after Usyk got injured and had signed with another promoter, then just recently worked out a co-promotional deal with Top Rank

    Takam is wayyyyyy better than Spong

    Takam was the perfect opponent for Usyk’s heavyweight debut, his losses were against Povetkin, Parker, Chisora and Joshua, he would given us a perfect gauge on how Usyk would do against the top 5 heavyweights.

    Spong only brought his name, no real threat, no skills, no experience, IMO a win over Spong does nothing for Usyk as far preparation for the big 3, Usyk is probably sparring better heavyweights than Spong.

    shame, man. Hope they get a decent replacement. Someone like Joey Dawejko or Andrey Fedosov.

    Should have held the fight in England where you don’t have to cancel fights for failed tests.

    Let the guy fight 200 pounds of grounded beef and shake off the rust already. He'll get to face decent opponents later, he just needs to lace them up and fight.

    Get the guy who fought Jake Hager in Brllator. He probably needs the payday
