Dimitrenko looked so bad in his fight against Joyce that it was sad to watch

I'm predicting a Yoka KO Round 4

You mean Ruiz?

Had a brainfart and got my Alexander's mixed up, my bad

Was thinking of Ustinov, Dimi isn't nearly as washed

Makes more sense

Prediction,

Good fight comeback fight for Yoka, a full year out is a lot for a prospect with only 5 fights, there will be some ring rust, but although this shouldn't be too much of a walkover, it shouldn't be a tougher fight than the Allen fight, especially considering Dimitrenko's form. I think Yoka stops Dimitrenko in 7.

yoka wins tko 3

Yoka is one of the best HW prospects. Battered Dave Allen like no one else has done and now takes Bumatrenko out without any effort. Did better than Ruiz and Jennings. After only 5 fights. The only question is his chin...

I think the top 3 heavyweight prospects are Dubois, Yoka, Hrgovic, and Joyce is weakest of that bunch.

This fight would've been a lot more interesting and competitve about 9-10 years ago, unfortunately since then Dimitrenko parted ways with Universum, retired for two years, returned to the ring for whatever reason, became deeply involved in religion, took another portion of beatings and became nine years older - and that's only the stuff that I know about. He doesn't have a promoter nor a proper coaching team, so you can imagine how his training camps go - if he has any, he's taking fights left and right so you can tell how desperate he might be for a paycheck, at this point I don't consider him to be even a European-level fighter.

Tony Yoka did exactly what you'd expect from a rising prospect to do against an overmatched opponent - he was showcasing his skillset, he dominated the fight from the opening bell and looked like the bigger man in there, he was well prepared and focused, the highlight reel KO was just an icing on the cake. This fight tells us very little about how far can Tony Yoka go in the heavyweight division, the disparity in class between both fighters is way too big at this point, but I think Yoka's PR management is doing a great job with him right now, matching him against recognizable names that aren't good enough boxing-wise to secure a possible victory - at such early stage of his professional career, it's fairly acceptable and even great for him.

If this fight doesn't convince Dimitrenko to retire than I don't know what does, on the other hand he's a recognizable European name than can be used as a cannon fodder by the up-and-coming prospects, so unfortunately it seems like he's going to use it to grab a few more paychecks. He has been in boxing business for 23 years, he's shot to pieces, doesn't have proper coaches and therefore doesn't even have proper training camps, nothing suggests he will bounce back at the age of 38 unless a miracle happens and someone takes him under the wing like Universum did 19 years ago, if he couldn't rebound eight years ago, he has an even smaller chance to do that now.
