This is the second time in a row many of us are left wanting after an unspectacular Dmitry Bivol decision. Don’t get me wrong, there’s still a lot to like. He’s sharp technically, has an admirably calm temperament, strikes quickly and powerfully, and even improved on his body punching, but there’s a slight risk aversion which prevents him from opening up like he could.
Michael Hunter keeps fighting and improving. In 2018, and post-Usyk, he’s strung together four wins, three by knockout. The win over Iago Kiladze was a solid sophomore heavyweight contest, but then he goes and outs British prospect Martin Bakole Ilunga, and then beats up and stops veteran Alexander Ustinov. It’s not a glittering resume, but it’s solid. I’m not sure he’ll crack the top-10 at 200+, but it wouldn’t surprise me.
Broner had a chance at making his biggest mark at 135. Had he beaten the #2 guy (a highly probable event), established a new lineage, and then pounded out a few defenses before getting outboxed by Terence Crawford, he would be better established legacy wise. Instead, he’s jumped up and down weights, lost every big fight he’s had, and been protected by Al Haymon. In fact, if Broner hadn’t been in tight with money men early on, he may well be an 8-loss fringe contender at this point. He arguably lost the Quintero, De Leon, Malignaggi, Granados, and Vargas fights.
I was about to organeyes my sewerside after reading this.
What better voice of reason to consult on this topic than Julio Cesar Chavez Sr.?
Forget all the fishnet stuff, Oscar looks like a throwback compared to most of the guys who came after him. That doesn’t mean his resume was Greb-esque, however.
Let them take man-sized bong hits in-between rounds while wearing pink underwear while selling it as $10 PPV and I think you’re in business.
*The usual nod goes out to Eric Duran, who again you can find here. Tom Millwall McLachlan gets credit for that lengthy gem on a Tyson Fury pic.
