    Yes I read the interview he stated people always snicker at Miller and Kownacki because they don't aesthetic builds but Miller stated they both have natural builds and aren't enhanced by weights and PED's(Miller could be but he denies it). I will say this Miller holds his weight rather well and hasn't gassed yet in any of his fights. Miller also accuses Joshua of PED usage in code because of the 20ish pounds of pure muscle he has gained since London 2012.

    I think he and Kownacki are former sparring partners and trained out of the same gym and probably hit the same fast food joints after sparring sessions...

    This Saturday on Long Island, NY. I don't think this one will go to the crooked judges. The freakin bookies have the big baby a 12-1 favorite. That sounds very excessive to me. Good odds to bet on Wach if you mess with booky betting..

    Got HBO. Both look soft. Why is it so hard to come close to Wlad shape when this is your meal ticket? Both are 3 or 2nd tier professionals.

    Watching the fight. If Wach came into the fight in shape period. He would be winning. Its a struggle with Big Baby getting the edge. DISGRACEFUL. How Wach was allowed to enter the fight.

    Wach and his management offered him as a sacrificial lamb for the affelet. Unreal. If he wins Big Baby is a real fraud.

    This is an outrage. Wach has a broken right hand. His corner should stop the fight! They are not. F*ck!!

    Wach if he came into this fight in shape a relatively easy win. Disgraceful.

    Thankfully they stopped the fight. Wach had a bad wing. WTF does Wach show up on a HBO card out of shape??? F*ck him.

    Damn corner got Wach to fight on with a broken hand, and the two doctors stood there looking like two cows. At least the ref finally stopped it. It's like poor Mago Abdusalamov never happened! Wach would probably have won if he didn't get hurt. Miller looked very unimpressive. The Polish cornerman should have his licenses lifted, and those two doctors too.

    BTW Jacobs looked solid. But if he thinks GGG, the winner of Saunders vs Lemieux is ahead he is wrong. Most likely he will have to beat the Charlo to get another bite at the apple.

    The main thing was his hurt hand tho and not his condition. I was surprised how unimpressive Miller looked. He looked wide open to a hard right all night but Wach couldn't throw it. The only one with any sense was the ref who finally stopped the fight*. It had become an ugly affair with Wach throwing his injured right hand and causing it pain and worse injury and not being able to stop Miller with it.


    * I see now that it was the doctor who signaled the ref to stop it.

    I don't know if Wach will continue fighting. He didn't seem motivated to show up in top shape last night. He was his heaviest ever. He's pushing 40. 40 boxer years, like dog years, is much older than 40 human years.

    This seems to be a common theme among the heavyweight guys. They show up to these big fights out of shape with a spare tire around the middle and box like they are uninterested. Like they are going through the motions for a payday and nothing else.

    I watched this fight today and can't say that I think Miller looks like anything but a decent top 10 guy as Wach was there to be hit and had a sparring partner mentality for the most part. It's probably time to hang up the gloves for Wach as he has drifted down to a good workout fighter, similar to what Pierre Coetzer was in the mid 90's.

    PS with his height and facial feature Wach could play Lurch in a Polish revival of the Adams Family. Or maybe he could be a Polish Ted Cassidy in a remake of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.......

    Wow some rejuvenated HW division producing classic showdowns like Big Baby and Maryus.

    I haven't seen so many jiggling body parts since my last visit to the Bada Bing.
