    Bellew fought much better than I expected him to and actually showed some genuine boxing intelligence in there at times. Usyk is just phenomenal though and it was only ever going to end like this. These Ukrainian boxers are special to watch. I think Usyk can be a problem for anyone at heavyweight. He apparently gave Klitschko a terrible time in sparring and he'd previously beaten the likes of Joe Joyce quite handily. Despite having a good KO ratio, his style isn't really about power, it's about wearing down his opponent with workrate and consistent pressure. He's incredibly similar to Lomachenko in that regard.

    Thanks Ste, glad you like them! Yeah the lantern pic is pretty bog standard to be fair. Might crop into it a bit to bring out the guy in the red near the bottom middle.

    A few recent pictures with my Minolta XD7 and some cheap Kodak film. I'm having so much fun with this camera.

    I had it 3-3. Povetkin is a dangerous fighter with great movement so I thought it would be tough for AJ. He's getting criticism but I was really impressed with how he adapted his style and boxed his way back into the fight. Fantastic combo to finish too.

    At this point it's like watching your dad and uncle have a fight.

    Yeah I completely agree. I probably would have had no issues with a draw if there wasn't this overwhelming sense of inevitability about which way the judges will score every time Canelo fights. It does feel like he gets he Golden Boy nod far too often.

    It's weird because despite both fights being really epic, I have no appetite for a third fight. I don't think a KO is likely and that means it's an almost guaranteed Canelo victory, especially in Vegas and if it's a Golden Boy / HBO deal, which kind of makes the exercise redundant. And GGG will go into quick decline at his age now. I'd have loved to see the GGG from 4 - 5 years ago fight Canelo.

    I had GGG winning by three but it was close. Unfortunately he was never going to win by decision, even if it was completely one sided. I feel bad for Golovkin as this would have cemented his legacy, but I still think he'll go down as an all time great. He definitely looked his age by the last couple of rounds though.

    That's standard Tyson Fury style. Very effective at nullifying his opponents, and undeniably skilful (Great footwork for a dude that size), but incredibly dull to watch. I respect his abilities more than Wilder, but I know who I prefer to watch!

    What a time to try that shot though!

    He's having a lot of success with that drop shot.

    Rafa is looking so creative. Some of his play has been truly incredible. I love seeing him come to the net, just a beautiful thing to behold.

    All fully consensual, although it definitely looks like I just followed her around with a long lens!

    A few recent photos taken in my Minolta XD-7 with a Rokkor 58mm Manual lens and using Fujifilm Provia 100F 135/36 colour reversal film. It took two weeks to get the film developed so I forgot I'd even taken some of these. The ice-cream cone was a nice surprise!
