A bunch of cards this weekend and really only on Friday are White boxers the A side on the fight cards, less Johnathan Guidry on the sham WBA regular heavyweight title fight card. Bakhodir Jalolov fights in a probable cannon fodder fight against obscure Jack Muloway. So far nobody has gone the distance with the Azeri gold medalist and it would probably be a win for the obscure African to hear the final bell after 8 rounds.Showtime has a decent card tonight featuring a couple of white heavyweights.
And so it's begun, I guess the lights are dim in whatever dingy room the WBA convenes in and Josh Taylor will get stripped of his WBA Super championship.
Judging superficially from his record he looks like a decent ESPN level fighter(the old level of ESPN) but every time he stepped up to fringe world level he was stopped or lost on points. The only name fighter that I recognize that he beat is Marvin Camel who is the first cruiserweight world champion in boxing history. He's also half Black and Native American and entered the ring in a Native American attire (I think he is half Black Foot). But at the time of the victory Camel was on the skids and descended to a name opponent collecting pay cheques.I came across this this morning. I had never heard of this guy.
It starts at 515 PM EST I almost missed this one as British fights usually start at 6PM EST. Chisora entered the ring to Elvis Presley muisc, similar to Presley on his comeback tour in Hawaii this could be the last roundup for him...Pulev Vs. Chisora this Saturday.
I found it weird that Pulev fought a few hybrid boxing/MMA fights since the Joshua loss but when they mentioned his age on the broadcast, now it makes sense as we was becoming a pay cheque fighter as once guys turn 40 and they are independent of a major promoter they chase fights.They're both boring retreads and I don't care for either so meh.
Boxing in UK last night.
Negro "British" Olympic silver medalist Whittaker won against a handpicked opponent. If you hear him talk and see how he behaves in ring, I don't know how any English person supports him.
