Prediction,

Murata is one of the 8 middleweights I rate highly, I think he is underrated, he's a good fighter, was a good amateur, won the Gold in the 2012 Olympics, and as a pro, although he has only had 15 fights, he has learned a lot and improved in the 15 fights he has had. Murara is 32, he is as good as he will ever be, but he is fresh, and I think he will fight for a world title next year, possibly after this fight. I thought Murata was robbed blind against N'Dam, in his home country, I didn't understand it, Murata seemed to not only clearly win, but clearly win by a harsh minimum of 116-111. Murata did great in the N'Dam rematch, dominated and stopped him, something Lemieux, Quillin couldn't do, and Murata, in his last fight, stopping good European level fighter, Emanuele Blandamura, in the same round Billy Joe Saunders stopped him, granted, not the same Blanamura.

Rob Brant was another one of these unbeaten fighters who will achieve in world level boxing when he entered the WBSS, moved up to 168, but in the quarterfinal, he lost, lost very wide, fought a veteran, but an old veteran without the strongest of resumes, and I think Brant, maybe inexperienced, maybe at a weight disadvantage, but also, maybe found out. Brant is 27, he might be capable of much better than against Braehmer, he is probably improving, he will have learned from that fight, but we still don't know if at world level, he is good. Brant was a good amateur, beat Thomas Williams Jr, beat Marcus Browne, doesn't always guarantee success in the pros, but it suggests Brant is a high calibre fighter, but it is still tough to rate him that highly based on the landslide loss to Braehmer. If Brant is good, this is an opportunity to prove it, we will see in this fight, how much of the Braehmer loss was about Braehmer being underrated, and weight.

I think this will be a good fight, but Murata will be a class above, and he will win a wide decision, maybe around 117-111, I think Brant will put up a great effort, have some success, but Murata will be a good fighter who is motivated to secure a world title shot, and he will impress, win comfortably.

What an effort from Brant! That was a good fight, would have been a great fight had Murata been better, as well prepared and determined as Brant was. Murata was disappointing, he was good at times, attacked the body well, was the aggressor, had a tight guard, but he could nowhere near match the output of Brant, there was a lack of head movement, he didn't cut off the ring well, and mentally, he didn't deal with losing the first couple of rounds well, that smile was frustrating, as the fighter with the more natural power, he should have tried to get Brant's respect straight away, not tried to get into Brant's head by simply standing up to the early onslaught and relying on Brant punching himself out, because he was either doing that, or just wasn't fully focused on the fight.

Brant is not a great fighter, I don't think he has a chance against the top 5 at 160, but he is better than I and a lot of other people thought he was, proved he is a good fighter in this fight, and in this fight, he was a fighter who wanted to win so bad, had trained right, sparred more than enough rounds, threw a phenomenal amount of punches, did the basics, had a spirited performance against an opponent who underestimated him, a bit like Jeff Horn against Manny Pacquiao. Brant should stay at 160, that, we know, going to 168 was unsuccessful for him, and in this fight, at 160, he certainly didn't look weight drained in the slightest, so 160 is his weight. I would like to see Brant vs Lemieux, Lemieux would be very capable of hurting Brant, but Brant is the much better fundamental boxer, much better footwork, much higher output, that would be an interesting fight.

I think Murata is better than the fighter we saw in this fight, but I also think he doesn't compare to the top 5 in the division, he won't improve in the future, he is not young, and he will never be as successful a professional as he was an amateur.

Matchroom's picture

Brant fought a good former long time LHW champion who he went up to meet at 168, Braehmer came down from 175. And Brant froze, yet still won 4 rounds on my card.

Matchroom's picture

Unreal performance by Rob Brant, what a engine to move like that while averaging 100 punches a round is amazing. By round 10 Brant was not only winning every exchange but forcing Murata back, and had Murata's face swelled up something fierce.

Matchroom's picture

I want to see Robert Brant again, I hope he signs with one of these big promoters or big platforms like Top Rank, Matchroom, Golden Boy. Basically anybody but Mayweather who wont promote his fighters. Anyway the point is we gotta see Rob Brant again, hope the WBSS does Middleweight next year and Brant enters again. Dude became a star in the boxing world overnight, and was by far the story/performance of this weekend that was crammed full of boxing. Good for Rob, I hope he gets to make some serious money now pulling for my fellow mid-western boy, even though he's be considered more a Northerner to folks around here.

Gold's picture

I heard Arum has options on Brant, so you'll likely be seeing him again with Top Rank. I wouldn't be surprised if they did the rematch personally, it is probably the best option for both parties. Even if he didn't sign with Top Rank someone would take a chance on him.

Matchroom's picture

Well he's got a piece of the WBA now so he's in line for a possible shot at Canelo, that is if Canelo comes back down to Middleweight.

Gold's picture

You'd think that logically but it hasn't always panned out that way, Charr held the WBA regular title at Heavyweight but was never talked about as a potential mandatory for Joshua by the WBA. Granted, Arum is a way bigger name as a promoter than whoever Charr had, so he'd have more leverage with the WBA.
