Prediction,

Don't understand why Wikipedia has Uzcategui as the IBF champion, but this isn't a title fight.

Uzcategui, in my opinion, is top 5 at 168, he was great in the Dirrell rematch, lost a DQ the first time, and lost to Korobov in 2014, but he has wins over Julius Jackson, Porky Medina, and he is in his prime now, Uzcategui.

Maderna is not world level, he has had a lot of success at Latino level, has a good record, 26-4, but as his losses prove, he isn't world level, beaten by UD against Rodriguez (who didn't give Ward problems at all), and Oosthuizen (who just lost to Mchunu, who was no challenge for Usyk), and against Beterbiev, it was a misatch, over in 4 rounds, so this shouldn't be a tough fight for Uzcategui.

I don't think Uzcategui hits as hard as Beterbiev, and at 168, Maderna isn't as far out of his depth, so I think this goes past 4, but I still think Uzcategui stops Maderna, maybe in 7 rounds.

I'd venture to guess the reason why it isn't a title fight even though Uzcategui was upgraded to the full IBF champion is that Maderna is not ranked by the IBF. Why he's fighting Maderna? I don't really know, I'd assume activity and/or Top Rank wanted him to fight on this card. Maderna is a can.

SalTnutZ1's picture

I think it is a stay busy, as he isn't getting a uni fight, and his mandatory Plant had to pull due to injury if I remember right. I think he will defend in Jan or Feb if I had to guess.

Gold's picture

That's right, I forgot the IBF ordered Uzcategui vs. Plant. I think if Zurdo doesn't start to impress soon they'll be more likely to do an in-house unification fight soon.

SalTnutZ1's picture

I know this one isn't for the title, but I thought the IBF elevated him to World champion when DeGale vacated? I thought I heard that, but could be mistaken. I look forward to seeing him back in action either way.

Champion97's picture

They did, unless Wikipedia screwed up. Same here, I'm a fan of Uzcategui, underrated fighter, young veteran, just dominated Dirrell, who nearly beat Froch and DeGale, hard not to rate him.

SalTnutZ1's picture

Yeah, I'd like to see him in a unification fight next year. I think him against any of the other champs would make for an exciting bout. You watching Groves-Smith live?

Champion97's picture

No doubt!

I'm behind, watching Lawal vs Kozma now

SalTnutZ1's picture

Kozma did well early, just gassed, got caught with a grazer, and just gave it up. Was looking like a poor man's Gassiev early, lol.

SalTnutZ1's picture

BTW, if you get the time this weekend, and can find the stream for it, you should watch this fight from a small King Promotions card from the other night. Only an 8 rounder, but truly was one of the most exciting fights of the year so far, and was an absolute slug fest. Anthony Mercado vs Victor Vazquez was the fight.

Champion97's picture

Thanks man, I'll give it a watch.

What did you think of Joshua's performance against Povetkin?

SalTnutZ1's picture

I think he was a bit cold to start, and was caught off guard by Povetkin coming out aggressive. I think Joshua thought that Povetkin was going to ease in, and not look to exchange that much early. His lunging attacks, and still relatively good power, caught Joshua off guard a bit, as I don't recall him fighting a guy of that style and stature before. But, Joshua recovered decently well, and as Povetkin started to gas a bit, he took advantage at the right time. This was sort of like Ortiz v Wilder, in terms of getting past adversity against a dangerous, veteran opponent(though I rate Ortiz higher than Povetkin, but I think you can see what I mean). Overall, I still put Wilder past him, at least by my estimation, as I think his length, athleticism, and power will win him the day. But first things first, and he has to take Fury down, which I think he will, and will show some good boxing technique this fight, too. He is painted as always being "wild", but has shown to be a very patient and calculating fighter, up to the point in which he hurts a guy, that is when he goes after it with no holding back. Can a guy like Fury or Joshua counter that? I just don't think they can. I could be wrong, but I hope by this time next year at the latest(and I will be disappointed if it doesn't happen in April), and we can have a unified champion.

Looked like Uzi was just trying to get rounds in. He didn't ever really try to finish this guy, which he should have. Disappointing.

Gold's picture

Is this fight worth watching at all?

Champion97's picture

I'll tell you, Cilic vs Ware is worth watching.

Gold's picture

I'm going to watch both of the Kilic and Haney fights from the ShoBox card

Champion97's picture

Kilic vs Ware, in my opinion, was a classic for entertainment value.

SalTnutZ1's picture

NO. He literally just toyed with the guy for 10, only doing enough to win, not burn himself out or get hurt. Only thing interesting that came out of this fight was the story about Uzi and Munguia being sparring partners, which I can only imagine the gym wars they have.
