Kiko Martinez Vs. Josh Warrington coming up this Saturday.
GGG returns to action on Sat. He turned 40 today I hope he has something left in the tank. He is fighting a pretty good banger in Murata.
Yes I woke up to see this fight and GGG looked 40 for the first 5 rounds or so but slowly broke down Murata and then looked like a reasonable copy of his old self until the inevitable stoppage. At a higher weight and 4 years later he has virtually no chance to beat Alvarez. Unlike Woods jousting at windmills in boxing generally these beatings have long term health consequences ie Ali and Frazier.GGG in a war knocks out Murata in the 9th round. The first 5 rounds were rough for GGG. He was hurt to the body and Murata had him backing up. Then in the 6th round, GGG found his rhythm and just went to the body and head with hard shots and eventually got Murata out of there. A tough fight for GGG. No fight at 168 with Canelo. I think it would be a big mistake for GGG. I agree with Arearequired, the time for that fight is passed.
I was going to post the result last night.We have learned from Trey and Kenzie that punching power is heritable. What if either one of them would have had an equivalent to Tommy's amateur experience?
It shouldn't be as this fight is probably the biggest fight of the year until the Usyk vs Joshua rematch happens. Bivol is a very live dog as he is very technical and is significantly taller and in his prime unlike Kovalev.Don't know why this is under Misc. boxing news. It's a fairly big fight to me. I can't believe Bivol is a 5-1 underdog. I call it a toss-up.
Money on Bivol would be a good idea.
The score cards were set up for a robbery as ESPN said what I said and stated the fight wasn't even that close. Canelo just had to win a round somewhere in this fight and we have a bogus draw. It still amazes me that there was no urgency on his part to win the last round, because Bivol probably would have given ground and given away the round to avoid a fluke knockout.Surprised there wasn't a big fat robbery.
