Prediction,

Young should win this one I think, he lost to Gaballo, but he drew with Popatov, drew with Nieves, I don't know if he's world level, but this is a stay busy fight I think, and a chance for him to build his name maybe, on the undercard of two WBSS fights. Soto is 27, had 25 fights, but his opposition, overall, has been poor, he fought Cesar Juarez in his last fight, got stopped in 9, that was a big step up.

I think Young beats Soto by a wide UD, maybe a shutout, maybe slightly closer, but a one sided win.

Matchroom's picture

This turned into a good azz fight, started out looking like a blowout possibly early stoppage and a blitzkrieg of speed by Young for the first 3 rounds. The hand and foot speed difference was crazy, you didn't know if Soto was even going to land one solid blow. Then Soto adjusted his gameplan and got on the inside, Young looked like he had slowed down by the 4th & Soto reeled off 4 straight rounds. Then Young got his second wind and pot shotted Soto like the first 3 rounds over the last 3 to win comfortably in what turned out to be a fun fight.

Champion97's picture

Good fight, very close fight in my opinion, I gave Soto the benefit of the doubt in rounds 4 and 9, tough rounds to score, he was aggressive, landed enough shots, heavy shots, bullied Young, but I think Young won clearly with the knockdown, definitely wasn't 99-90 in my opinion. Young was much technically better, but mentally, Soto seemed to have more determination, was more prepared to take chances, and he did a good job of attacking the body, hurt Young at least once, made it difficult for Young for fight on the inside at all, but once Young was able to use the ring, his speed, straight, sharp shooting, he was able to pick up the points, and Soto couldn't get near him.

https://www.boxingscene.com/neeco-macias-vs-jesus-soto-karass-november-8... One of the upcoming fights I'm looking most forward to. They make break a record for punches thrown in a 10 round fight, if it goes that far!

Champion97's picture

Not familiar with the first one, but of course I know of Soto Karass, and his fights against Maidana, Kamegai, Berto, great fights.

What did you make of Andrade's performance on saturday?

SalTnutZ1's picture

Macias has set Welterweight records for punch output. He's like Soto Karass on speed, haha. You should check out Macias vs Cabrera. He was the B side, and completely overwhelmed the kid with his output, getting himself signed by GB as a result.

Haven't got to watch yet. Plan on catching up on that card and WBSS card from DAZN sometime this week. Wanted to make sure to watch those ESPN+ cards, first, as they don't store them in their system long, and DAZN keep theirs forever.

Champion97's picture

I'll watch that fight. By the sounds of it, Macias vs Soto Karass will be a war!

Good thinking, I'm catching up on the WBSS now.

You watching any of the fights live this weekend?

SalTnutZ1's picture

As many as I can. Have a few on my list this week, including a foreign card or two, so have to plan it all out. It’s my long work week, and one of my cats has been sick, so have been dealing with that, too, which also kept me from being caught up already. You should see the word doc I’ve made this year on fights to catch up on and classics to rewatch, it’s 9 pages or so, haha. School, work, and getting this government job, plus family obligations all add up.

Champion97's picture

I will watch Pulev vs Fury live, but the other two, I will watch the next day, because I have been staying up too many nights, almost becoming nocturnal, it isn't the same live, but still, I'll catch up which is almost as good. Sorry to hear that, I've been there with pets being sick or hurt, we bought two cats about 10 years ago, one of them died about 8 years ago, hit by a car, she had to be put down. I hope your cat makes a full recovery, what exactly is wrong with your cat if you don't mind me asking? That's work for you, always has to come first, but it must be even better when you get to cut lose and watch a boxing fight marathon, I have all that still to come, so I'd better enjoy having the amount of time I have now to watch boxing, are your family boxing fans as well?

SalTnutZ1's picture

We are still figuring it out. Has just had stomach issues, so we are getting her tests to see what's up. And yeah, I'm ready for the holidays, which working for local government, gets me a lot of paid time off, and ability to catch up. My parents were, but as they've gotten older, just have less interest, but I think my mom still watches once in awhile if she happens to see one on. My gal is okay with them, and will watch if she's in the room, but not a fan per se. She can name fighters though, which is better than most, haha

Champion97's picture

Well, I hope she is ok. Man, I would love to meet a girl who likes boxing, can't think of a better scenario. My grandad who I never met loved boxing, was incredibly similar to me, but apart from that, there are no hardcore boxing fans in my family, my dad watches boxing (Champion58), but is a casual enough fan to predict Billy Dib and Toka Kahn Clary to win because apparently they have great names, hadn't seen them fight, but thought they had cool names, but to be fair, he did call Bellew's win over Haye and was very confident from the start the build up of the first fight, right up until the rematch.

I know you think Inoue wins at 118, but at 140 and 200, who wins WBSS for you?

SalTnutZ1's picture

I think Cruiser is open for any of the top 3 seeds(MB, Dorticos, or Glowacki) , but I'd lean Breidis. Tabiti isn't overly impressive to me in the handful of fights I've watched of his.

You're right about Inoue and me when it comes to the 118 tourney.

At 140, I'm leaning Prograis to beat Taylor in the final, but wouldn't be surprised to see that result flipped either.

Matchroom's picture

If Prograis & Taylor make the final I think Taylor gives him a boxing lesson. I still feel my sleeper pick Ivan Baranchyk could upset the apple cart and win the whole thing. Everyone who pays attention to the WBSS is picking either Taylor or Prograis giving everyone else very little chance. Ivan is a beast and tough as nails I like his chances better than most. I also feel with Prograis straight forward block punches with his face style for 2 rounds before going for the knockout, that Flanigan might be skilled enough to give Regis & DiBella a scare. If Turbo can stand up to Regis' power I think he's the more skilled boxer.

One things for sure, all 3 tourneys are gonna heat up in the second rounds.
