Prediction,

This is an interesting one.
Mike Reed has the bigger name, he has had more fights, and he has fought the stronger opponents I think really.
Arnold Barboza is the much naturally bigger fighter, he he has a lot of height and reach on his side, he is undefeated.

There are two different ways of looking at this fight.
The probably physically stronger fighter who is undefeated may have too much against a guy who is coming off a loss, his only loss, but a tough loss, and a defeat which was only 4 months ago, maybe it's too soon.
The more experienced fighter might prove to be too good, the fighter who has fought stronger opponents, and had more fights, may have learned from defeat, it might be experience, more than anything else.

This is a tough test for Barboza, now, it is hard to say whether he is a serious contender at 140, who is every bit as good as his unbeaten record suggests, he could also be a fighter who is quite good at a certain level, wins a lot, but then steps up at some point, and is proven not to be a major player in his division.
For a different reason, this is a tough test for Reed as well, he was unbeaten, he lost, he was stopped early, no shame, because he lost to an unbeaten fighter who is now set to fight for a world title. Reed may have been a fighter who could win at 8 round level, but not take his boxing ability and success up to a higher level, but he could also be a good fighter who came across the wrong opponent.

Neither of these guys are very big punchers, so I wouldn't say a stoppage is highly likely, could happen, if one of the fighters is out to make a statement, the opponent is fatigued, and the fighter can produce the accumulation of punches, and witha fair amount power, a stoppabe isn't that unlikely, but I still think this fight will go the distance.
I think Reed will win this, should be a good fight, Barboza has a good shot at winning, but I think Reed wins.

Comeback fight for Mr. Reed.

Boxing Purist's picture

Good fight but neither man is winning a world title.

Champion97's picture

And you know that because you know the future?
You know that because you are even a good judge of it?

Boxing Purist's picture

Yeah you've never said anything like a fighter is good but not good enough to win a world title. Could you be anymore of a passive aggressive hypocrite. I see you trying to get someone else to help you fight your retarded battle. Do yourself a favor, log off and seek help.

Champion97's picture

The fact that you are calling me a retard says a lot.
Log off, Haha, again, you, delete your account!

Boxing Purist's picture

I said your fight is retarded, what the hell is wrong with you.

Champion97's picture

You want to know what's wrong with me?

Boxing Purist's picture

In actuality I don't care, it was a figure of speech. Do you act this way everytime someone says something you don't like about a fighter you like. Again I don't really care just putting it out there. You overreact a lot over something like a comment about a fighter, but defend people that attack & threaten others over how they score rounds. So clearly what's important in your view as it pertains to this site is off.

Champion97's picture

You don't know boxing, your attitude is disgusting.
Get lost!

Tell me when did I threaten you?

Champion97's picture

What's wrong with me is my low tolerance for bullshitters like you.

Champion97's picture

You do not know boxing, and I am not just going to sit back and say nothing when Insee someone supporting an issue which I've been telling people about for years, again, get off this site!

Champion97's picture

You suck.

Boxing Purist's picture

You suck worse than Deontay Wilder. You're not getting your way little baby. So go spin some more BS, and run off to your protector little baby.

Champion97's picture

Run off to my protector? Hahaha, I'm my own protector mate, I'm standing here on my own telling you you don't know boxing and to get off this site.
I dropped a message to my pal because I don't like pieces of shit talking crap about people I get along with, so I thought it fair that someone else stand up for themselves, my fight is with you, and the argument about the Disgusting things you said about Wilder, is between you, and me, nobody else!

Boxing Purist's picture

Yeah that's why you trying to get Boxing Knowledge involved, you liar. I'm telling you if you think Wilder is this great fighter you don't know boxing. Your fight is retared, and TALKIN SHIT? That is exactly what happened in black and white. That guy goes around attacking people, and you don't say boo, other people even mentioned this. But make a comment about what a can crusher Wilder is, and he is, and you act like a idiot. So take your piece of shits self and your opinions somewhere else. This is so stupid, you seriously need help. But whatever, I'm done with you and the whole mess.

Champion97's picture

Say what you like, but again, I'm arguing with you, on my own, I didn't need to post a comment to BK, but I thought 2 people trying to teach you about boxing was better than one person.

Your making this too much about an argument, how about you learn the error of your ways, remove that first BS comment you made about Wilder, and then I'll be satisfied, and leave you alone, until then, I'm still very angry that you are here.

Now I'm not having that, I've been here for years, enjoying scoring boxing and discussing it, I was very happy and humble until you showed up and started talking shit about Wilder, I'm going nowhere, you're the oik here, get lost!

Champion97's picture

Get, off, this website!

Champion97's picture

And there we go again, saying Wilder sucks! You piece of shit.
