    ROUND FOUR

    You know a fight is going well when the comms team starts raving about how well the referee is performing.

    Steve Cunningham is beating Frank Mir up, by the way, but I am sure you want more ODLH fall-out, don't you?

  • Wally Downes Jr

    ROUND THREE

    Oscar just keeps mumbling the word "baby".

    Not sure why. Because he can, I suppose.

  • Wally Downes Jr

    ROUND TWO

    These two have a combined age of 88 and it shows in all of the non-action.

    Oscar is making all the commentary table laugh… not so much the Twitter crowd though…

  • Wally Downes Jr

    ROUND ONE

    Nobody cares about the boxing because of the pickle Oscar De La Hoya is in.

    "This is what you get from Triller fight club" some oaf on comms proudly shouts.

  • Wally Downes Jr

    CUNNINGHAM vs MIR

    You know it's a serious fight when one bloke is FOUR STONE heavier.

    Six rounds of farce now as Steve Cunningham faces the former UFC fighter making his boxing debut.

    Hopefully this is over quickly so we can finally hear some music.

    Oscar De La Hoya slurring his way through this on comms…

    UF-SEEING THIS?

    Triller has done done wonders for boxing and MMA tonight.

    This is the lowest of the low, rock bottom, the nadir.

    Everything is better than this…

  • Wally Downes Jr

    TWO HOURS IN…

    Two rounds of white collar boxing.

    One slap fight.

    Lots of adverts.

    Many songs.

  • Wally Downes Jr

    NOTHING TO SEE HERE..

    Still no boxing.

    There's boxing on FOX and some excellent UFC on BT Sport.

    Nothing to see here.

    Switch over.

    Save yourself.

    FEED BARK

    The Triller media team are having a dog of an evening.

    I have not seen consistantly negative reviews like this since I joined a dating app…

  • Wally Downes Jr

    SLAP FIGHT

    Two obese men with beards are now going to take it in turns to slap each other until one quits or passes out.

    Ric Flair is the referee.

    One of the blokes slapping has green hair.

    The other bloke is angry that green hair keeps flinching.

    LOPEZ vs KAMBOSOS

    Al Bernstein is now comparing this all to Hagler vs Hearns.

    Al, Al, come on mate.

    Kambosos calling about his designer shoes, Burberry and Versace and that.

    There is another fight happening soon – oh, actually it is a slap fight with Ric Flair officiating.

  • Wally Downes Jr

    REAL Qs

    Better brains than mine are asking how this is even happening.

    This will be my last Triller card – or my last shift entirely…

  • Wally Downes Jr

    NOTHING TO WRITE

    THERE IS NOTHING TO SAY

    THIS IS NOTA BOXING BLOG

    THIS IS A CRY FOR HELP

  • Wally Downes Jr

    BEN KNOWS

    Even the main event star knows this show is DEAD…

    Does anyone, ANYWHERE, rate this?

  • Wally Downes Jr

    CLOCK TICKS

    EIGHTY MINUTES into the broadcast and we have seen two rounds of 'boxing' btween a 38-year-old and a debutant.

    The rest has been a pop concert in an empty arena.

    The current singer just asked to see 'a**** wiggling and t****** bouncing'

  • Wally Downes Jr

    HAHAHAHA MORE SINGING

    Bloke wearing a coat, hat and sunglasses indoors now.

    This is a robbery, a crime.

    Regis Prograis is a great boxer, he does not deserve this.

  • Wally Downes Jr

    PRAY FOR THE END

    I cannot believe an undisputed superstar like Teofimo Lopez has to fight on this platform next.

    The kid is supposed to be the future of boxing, this could be the death of the swhole sport…

  • Wally Downes Jr

    ONE UP SIDE…

    Any at home in the UK who moans about paying big bucks for Sky Sports and BT Sport can see this shambles and relax.

    Thank god we are back to Snoop Dogg and a load of alcohol and skunk spliffs now…

  • Wally Downes Jr

    KILL ME NOW..

    We are now on to song three of this deplorable event.

    I feel grubby just sitting here at 3am watching it.

    XXX-RATED REVIEWS

    RAP SHEET

    Lady in the ring singing now and doing a lot swearing.

    The singer is wearing underwear and a coat.

    It seems from the lyrics she is angry with her so-called best friend.

    She must be freezing in those pants.

  • Wally Downes Jr

    T-ROLL WITH PUNCHES

    At least there are decent memes and GIFs going around tonight.

    Because we are thin on boxing action so far…

  • Wally Downes Jr

    PERSPECTIVE

    The last bloke Fournier beat in 2016 had a record of 1-11.

    The fight before that, his opponent had a record of 0-13.

    Both men retired after fighting Fournier.

    The bloke before that was 1-11 too and – you guessed it – he retired too.

    FOURNIER SPEAKS

    The Brit says: "Look at my record, I knock everyone out, he is a legend for getting in with me, he has a lot of balls.

    "I used the same strategy I would use against a world champion. I wanted to get three or four rounds in as I have been out for a long time.

    "I would love to fight Jake Paul next."

  • Wally Downes Jr

    ROUND THREE: FOURNIER WINS

    Joe Fournier is an 8-0 fighter with a WBA belt.

    He just beat up a singer on his pro debut.

    Fournier falls to his knees and kisses the canvas.

    I am on my knees watching that.
