Filip Hrgovic vs Tony Yoka in the IBF final eliminator.

That's a damn good fight! Yoka to get chinned late on imo.

Haven't seen much of Yoka tbh.

He's a skilled and spiteful puncher. Similar to Joshua in his early pro career but leaner. He's also got a great resume since turning pro and taken some pretty tricky fights for where he's at in his career.

The downsides to Yoka is that he's got a suspect chin. He's been stopped a few times in the amatuers, including a couple of savage flatlines and a quit. Erislandy Savon managed to brutally
Secondly, his amatuer career and some think his professional career is fraught with corruption. I don't know any details of this other than what gets said (by a hell of a lot of people) on forums and in comment-sections.

Just google the Joyce vs Yoka 2016 Olympic final, don't watch the video just read the comments. You'll see.

Don't know what happened to half my post there, perhaps a bug?

Continuing from:
Erislandy Savon managed to brutally knockout Yoka with headgear. He also quit against Omarov, he was taking a bit of a beating and just didn't come out for the following round.

The AIBA stinks of corruption, that's why at the moment boxing will not be one of the sports at the 2028 Olympic games.
Good luck to both of them, two young prospects backing themselves.

Ortiz looks just about done.

I know Martin has improved an immeasurable amount since his comedy sketch against Joshua, but Ortiz got dropped easily twice, not good signs.

Also Martin getting his arm caught in the ropes was funny, but I've no idea what Ortiz shoving him at the end was all about.

Was a really poor standard of boxing to be fair, dillian would smoke both of those two easily.

Seen the highlights just. Looked like it was held in my local leisure centre. Was funny when he got his hand caught in the ropes. Lol.

I see that both Ortiz and Parker passed on the opportunity to fight in the IBF final eliminator with Filip Hrgovic.

Everyone is ducking this guy because he's very, very similar to Vitali Klitschko and he doesn't carry any clout financially.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jan 2022 17:15:00
He's in the who needs him club. They should offer it to Hughie Fury. Don't know if Fury or boxxer would accept that but they have been saying they r looking an opponent and it would be good exposure for Hrgovic. I would make him favourite to win but only slightly. Fury half decent boxer and I don't believe Hrgovic is a particularly big puncher, eventhough he's knocked 12 of 14 out.

Chisora v Parker II tonight, pretty pointless fight, the type of fight that Hearn and Sky would have had on box office. Anyway, sticking with the same prediction I had for their first fight. Both fighters to be knocked down during the fight and Parker to win on points.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

18 Dec 2021 18:00:28
I think Chisora will get chinned early.

Parker had come in 10lbs heavier and Chisoras chin is not what it was.

Both Conor Benn and Lomachenko looked really good last night.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

13 Dec 2021 15:45:11
Think Broner or winner of Khan v Brook are good match ups for Benn next.
Lomachenko was excellent. Joy to watch.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Dec 2021 17:48:58
Also thought Sunny Edwards was brilliant on Saturday really enjoyed that. Probellum fight cards have been shown on free sports channel.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Dec 2021 22:32:18
Based on his latest performance, I think Benn would be the first to stop Broner. He stops both of Khan and Brook, probably early on for both I'd imagine.

He's a way off of Crawford and Spence yet, but I suspect one will have retired (Crawford) and one will have moved up in weight (Spence) by the time he's ready for them.

Agree0 Disagree0

Chris Algieri was made for Benn. He had no power to keep Benn off him and was only a matter of time before he give way to the pressure Benn brings. He also hurt Algieri with almost the first combination he threw so I believe on Saturday we show a relaxed fully confident Benn. His jab was excellent and he showed good power and good variety to his work.

After the fight I heard Tony Bellew say that he would put Benn in now with any welterweight out there. That's complete nonsense and would get Benn hurt imo. In that fight against Algieri Benn was caught afew times, clean. If he's fighting the likes of a David Avanaysen them clean shots would change the fight. The likes of Boots Enis and Ortiz Jr arw too big for Benn and would hurt him.

He has been matched really well so far and they should just keep him ar this level for a while yet before going for the titles. The likes of Robert Gurerreo etc would suit him. Past fighters who will build his name up but not be a danger to him.

I don't like to say this about fighters buy Khan and Brook r both damaged goods. They would be excellent match-ups for Benn and I agree he stops both of them. Agree he stops Borner also. No need to rush Benn, I would keep him at the level he is at now then maybe Avanaysen end of next year or 2023 for European title.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Dec 2021 14:48:37
I was thinking that Benn would be better suited if he could get down to light welterweight. Don't know how tight he is at 147 but if he could get down to 140 I think he will have a better chance of beating the champions.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Dec 2021 19:27:03
I think saying Algieri was made for Benn is a little harsh. He's certain past his best but still a big step up.

Agree with everything else you say.

Fury vs Whyte talks have begun.

Finally!

If it happens, do u think it would sell out Old Trafford?

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2021 12:49:19
about time to.
whyte has waited so long for the title shot and the man deserves it.

i think fury will stop him late on but whyte will give it a good go

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2021 16:29:29
I think this would sell out Old Trafford, but that means it would have to be in the summer and I don't think Fury wants to wait that long.

I think Fury wins vs wide points margin, with maybe a knockdown or two each way. I think the fire will come early from both of them, but around the 5th round or so Fury will start to box and move, then just coast to the end.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2021 18:05:11
Whyte dangerous with them body shots but I believe he will fade and Fury will stop him late.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Dec 2021 11:55:48
I reckon it'll be similar to the Fury-Chisora fights, Whyte will bring a lot of effort but Fury will pick him off for a wide UD.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Dec 2021 18:48:47
You could be right, but Dillian is both bigger and less limited than Chisora in my opinion. Dillian can box a bit where as Chisora doesn't really know anything other than 'come forward and swing'.

Agree0 Disagree0

Khan vs Brook is going to happen now they're both out of world level contention.

Have no interest in this fight any more, Khan is only taking the fight because of how easily Crawford knocked Brook out, so he thinks he can actually win now.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

29 Nov 2021 18:54:47
Yeah agree, Khan has no where else to go. Might aswell cash in on the only pay day left. They r both shadows of their former self's, if it had of happened in their primes I think Brook would have knocked him. At this stage in their careers anything could happen in this fight, Khan could land afew punches and Brooks eye could go, I don't even think bragging rights is on the line here they r both so far gone.

Agree0 Disagree0

Karma is a muthafker. Fair play Kambosos deserved the win. As for Lopez, this is what he gets for avoiding the lomachenko rematch. I'm fed up with these fighters not fighting each other and walking about like they r the second coming of sugar ray. Maybe now Lopez will be willing to get in the ring with some of the other guys in the lightweight division, just hoping the likes of Garcia and Haney accept the challenge now. Hope Kambosos doesn't give him a rematch he doesn't deserve one.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

28 Nov 2021 17:57:31
Ever since Lopez beat Lomachenko, he's been walking around like he's Gods gift to the world. So this will likely do him some good.

I'd also like to give a Pulev a mention, he fought Frank Mir in a 'hybrid' Boxing match which was punches only but you were allowed to hit and hold with MMA gloves in a triangle (yes the ring was a triangle). He could have done some real damage to Mir but backed off when he was out on his feet. True class.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2021 14:52:49
I seen that Pulev knockout. One of them mma fighters is going to get killed if that circus continues.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2021 16:38:46
I agree. Boxing is far more punishing than MMA in terms of it's lasting effects and also the stamina required to fight as long as they do.

MMA fighters are obviously skilled, but they don't carry that pedigree like a Boxer does. They will concentrate on all areas where as Boxing is just punching, so they can hone those skills to the highest level.
