Wladimir Klitschko and Alex Leapai

An alphabet of world heavyweight titles are on the line this weekend when Wladimir Klitschko and Alex Leapai trade blows in Germany on Saturday night. The question for punters however is, just how much action will there be?

Fight Reports

Brentwood’s ‘Smokin’ Joe Mullender (6-1) got back on track with a close points win over Peckham’s Diego Burton (4-4-1) over ten rounds at the York Hall on Saturday. It was a belter of a fight on a slightly smaller than usual Goodwin bill, partly due to 'Flash' Ashley Sexton not making weight again (more on this later) and 'Big Dog' AJ Carter’s opponent, who reportedly turned up with Evo-Stick holding his mooey in place.
