This afternoon beginning at Noon EST on Sky Box Office in the United Kingdom, Anthony Joshua headlines a packed bill from the O2 Arena in London, as the 2012 Olympic gold medalist and current Commonwealth heavyweight champion looks to add the vacant British belt to his collection against former amateur rival Dillian Whyte.

Joshua (14-0, 14 KO) has steamrolled his pro opposition to date, racking up loads of hype with his early knockout wins. Whyte (16-0, 13 KO) beat Joshua in the amateurs years back. A former pro kickboxer, Whyte, 27, is looking to break through big time with a win today.

Round 1: O'Sullivan keeping his hands down and jawing a bit to start. He gets clipped about a minute in. Eubank springs forward with a slashing left hook that maybe grazed O'Sullivan. Spike not doing much but Eubank not doing a ton either, though trying to work behind the jab. O'Sullivan catches Eubank on the side of the head with a cuffing hook and that appears to have hurt him just a bit. O'Sullivan too busy celebrating to capitalize. Eubank 10-9

He's more likely to win this fight than O'Sullivan, but it's also the ONLY chance that O'Sullivan has. Eubank 10-9, 20-18

Round 3: Eubank walks himself to the corner, tries to do something spectacular, and O'Sullivan smacks him with another hard hook. Big right back from Eubank!

Round 6: O'Sullivan getting hurt early in the round, and Eubank back on the massive attack. O'Sullivan winging counters but Eubank is all over him. Wicked combinations from Eubank.

Round 1: OK, we're past Roy Jones getting knocked out and Bellew slipping past Masternak. Good to be back. Barroso has big power on paper, 17 stoppages in 18 wins, but we'll see how he shows here. Mitchell pretty tentative early, gets caught with one good shot, not throwing much. Barroso 10-9

Round 3: Barroso throwing bombs at Mitchell in the corner and against the ropes, Mitchell ties up finally. Barroso takes this round mostly because of that. Barroso 10-9, 29-28

Round 4: Mitchell knocked down in round 4. Feet were tangled but it counts. Replay show it's more the legs knocking together, but a shot did land. Barroso 10-8, 39-36

Round 5: Barroso has more confidence now, it would appear. He's leading the action a bit more. Mitchell down with no dispute this time. 30 seconds left. Barroso throwing bombs and Mitchell getting creamed, and this fight is over! Barroso TKO-5


Round 1: Bellew has promised action but he'll do that and rarely really delivers. Both guys a bit tentative with range early, but throwing. Bellew with a left hook counter. He's got his jab working a bit, too. Jab from Masternak. Bellew picking up in the last minute of the round.  Bellew 10-9

Round 2: Masternak with a much better second round, landing a few good shots and making Bellew miss a lot. Masternak takes the second and we've got a real 50-50 thriller now. Listen I'm just trying to care. Masternak 10-9, 19-19

Round 3: Bellew's corner wants the jab back this round, understandably. Bellew lands a right early. Bellew jabbing a lot this round. Masternak not doing much this round. It's all about whether or not Bellew jabs, it appears. Bellew slipping a few clumsy shots and lands one of his own. Bellew 10-9, 29-28

Round 4: Bellew mostly controlling with his jab again. Fairly dull, fairly normal for Bellew. Bellew 10-9, 39-37

Round 5: More of that. Masternak not doing enough to give Bellew any real trouble. Ugh, you know what, I'm going to watch the Roy Jones Jr fight. This is not interesting enough. Back for the next fight! Who cares!


Round 1: Campbell looking sharp in round one, often stepping backward but still the man leading the action for the most part. Campbell whacking to the body, shooting shots to the chest. Most of what he's throwing is aimed below the chin, with Mendy holding up a high guard. Campbell 10-9

Round 2: Mendy with a much better round in the second. First half is about even, but Mendy closes nicely, landing a good combination that catches Campbell pretty clean. Mendy 10-9, 19-19

Round 3: Campbell lands one to the body, Mendy comes back with a shot of his own. Two shots to the body from Campbell. This is a legitimate test for Campbell right now, Mendy marching forward and landing some. Both landing body shots. Mendy catches Campbell with a counter hook, grazing shot but noticeable. Mendy backs Campbell to the ropes and throws, but Campbell gets out quickly. Body shots from Campbell again. Good pace this round. Campbell 10-9, 29-28

Round 4: Mendy's body work starting to come into play now, too. Campbell's done well to the body so far, now Mendy's getting it going. Another body shot from Mendy. Jab splits Mendy's guard. Right hand up top from Mendy. Campbell with a hook to the body, but Mendy is in control this round. Mendy slipping shots upstairs, picking off others with his gloves. Right to the body again from Mendy. Body and head shot from Campbell. Right hand from Mendy stings Campbell a bit, perhaps. Mendy 10-9, 38-38

Round 5: Mendy comes out charging forward yet again. Campbell trying to get his jab out but it's hard for him to do much with Mendy's aggression. Campbell with two body shots. Back to the body. Right hook from Campbell slips in. He appears to be moving better this round. Counter right hand over the top from Mendy. Left down the pipe from Campbell, but nothing deters Mendy. Good pace again this round. Oh! Down goes Campbell! He's up and continuing but Mendy is just right back on top of him, and he's whacking away upstairs. Campbell just can't back him off. Mendy 10-8, 48-46

Round 6: Mendy continues on the front foot, Campbell in a real gut check. Right hand clean from Mendy. Campbell continuing to struggle this round. He can't find a rhythm on offense, but he's not looking deterred, necessarily. The pressure from Mendy is still there, but this was a better round from Campbell. Campbell 10-9, Mendy 57-56

Round 7: Mendy landing body shots and rocks Campbell's head back with a right, then shoots in a hook. He's picking up the pace again this round, landing better than he did in the sixth. Campbell trying to jab and fire body shots. Mendy catches Campbell a bit off balance again. Good round for Mendy. Mendy 10-9, 67-65

Round 8: Mendy just impossible for Campbell to back off. Luke Campbell's in real danger of losing this fight or having his win discredited as a robbery because he just can't keep this guy from doing whatever it is he wants. If Campbell hasn't hurt him by now, is he actually able to do so? Mendy 10-9, 77-74

Round 9: Campbell getting more done on offense this round. He is also still getting hit a lot. Body shots from Campbell this round. Mendy about the same, but Campbell picked it up. Campbell 10-9, Mendy 86-84

Round 10: Mendy's output has slowed some, but he's landing again this round. He's won the clearer rounds and it makes it seem like he's dominated, but I think this fight is legitimately close. Campbell looking tired this round. He can't keep any serious momentum in this fight. Mendy 10-9, 96-93

Round 11: To Campbell's credit he's not mentally folded in this fight at all, I don't think. Mendy has been trouble all night and Campbell hasn't given in to resistance. Campbell with great effort this round, but I think Mendy nicked this one. Mendy 10-9, 106-102

Round 12: I have Campbell needing a KO. So does Paul Smith on Sky. Campbell working hard this round. I think Luke did enough this round, but not in the fight. Fairly close, but I think clear for Mendy. Campbell 10-9, Mendy 115-112
