What did you think of the fight?

Champion97's picture

Good fight, Yarde was capable of winning, but he was too inexperienced and his trainer was poor. Kovalev used his experience, did very well after that 8th round fitness wise, him and McGirt are a great team, and Kovalev was able to use the jab to keep Yarde off, was able to breathe, and the less experienced fighter was only emptying his tank when he was trying to build on having Kovalev close to done, but he couldn't be consistent, couldn't stop Kovalev controlling the distance, couldn't break him down, and when Kovalev had recovered, and Yarde's tank was empty, Kovalev was tired as well, but had more in the tank than Yarde, and Kovalev just had to land a few good shots to get rid of Yarde at that stage.

Sorry for late response. I still need to watch the fight, but I heard Kovalev was ready to get stopped. I like Kovalev and Mcgirt as a team. I feel like if he didn't have a bad gas tank he could beat Gvodyzk or Beterbiev, but I think they caught up to them.

He was on the edge of defeat, had Yarde been more experienced, known how to capitalise properly, I think he would have been stopped. I don't, I don't think it is just the gas tank which would be the problem for him in those fights, they are more versatile, have less vulnerabilities, still, I don't think they have Kovalev's power, and that jab might be one of the best in boxing.

I think it depends on the Kovalev we get. If we get the one that beat Yarde and Alvarez then he has a good shot of winning, if not he will get beat.

What did you think of this weekends fights?

I don't think so, I think the Kovalev from last year is much less of a tough fight, but I think Bivol and Gvozdyk would still win well even now Kovalev is training with McGirt, that's just my opinion, but I don't think Kovalev has a good shot at beating Bivol, Gvozdyk.

Good fights, Povetkin vs Fury was interesting, Cordina vs Gwyne was a good fight, and Campbell fought possibly the best fighter on the planet, lost, it was one sided, but competitive, a good fight, no disgrace there. Did you see any of the fights?

Do you want to be in the prediction competition this month?

I'm still not sure who will win. The thing is that even though Kovalev is getting older but has looked better then he has in a while.

I only watched Fury vs Povetkin and Loma vs Campbell. Fury vs povetkin was alright. I liked Lomachenko vs Campbell. Man is Campbell tough, he's better then a lot of people thought. People will complain about Lomachenko struggling early, but that happens a lot like Mayweather against Judah or Mosley. He's one belt away from becoming undisputed, do you think he can do it?

Also, theres something interesting events going on at 135 now. Gervonta Davis is moving up and that could throw a wrench in the Lopez/Commey/Loma undisputed situation. Davis could beat Lopez or Commey and then fight Lomachenko for undisputed. Also Devin Haney is also a player at 135. I think Haney could beat Lopez and possibly Commey. What do you think?

Definitely, I think Campbell would beat the Commey vs Lopez winner, so Lomachencko beats the winner easily. You?

Do you want to be in PCOM this month or rather not?

Well Lomachencko might well be moving down to 130, and Lomachencko against Berchelt or Valdez at 130 are better fights than Lomachencko vs Commey or Lopez, much better, not better fights than Lomachencko vs Tank, but the network situation means it's a very hard fight to make. If Lomachencko goes down to 130, just when Davis finally moves up, that's bad, bad timing. That's another hard fight to make for promotional reasons, but yes, good prospect, Haney, like Lopez, is inexperienced, but seems to have potential, I think Haney will get a learning fight against Abdullaev, like Lopez against Nakatani. I think Lopez vs Haney is 50/50, Haney is less inexperienced, both fighters have good skills, Lopez has more power, it would be a 50/50 fight, Haney might bave more skills, is more illusive, I think Haney, but that would be a 50/50 fight. You?

Also, have you seen Vergil Ortiz fight?

It's very possible.

I'll pass on this month. I'm just busy at the moment.

He is? I think he's going to stay at 135 to go for undisputed. It will be hard to get made because of the networks. I just feel that Haney is more skilled and experienced, and will beat Lopez. Is Lopez vs Commey happening or isn't anything confirmed yet/

I've seen him against Herrera but that's it, what about you?

Champion97's picture

Ok.

It's an option, but is being undisputed a priority?, Lomachencko might drop back down and fight Berchelt, is Lomachencko not a better fight than Lomachencko vs Commey or Lopez? Because I think that's an awesome fight, and Berchelt is more of a threat to Lomachencko than anyone at 130 or 135 apart from Davis. Commey vs Lopez is confirmed for December, that's on, interesting fight, Lopez almost certainly has the potential to beat Commey, but is he ready for Commey?

Saw him against Roberto Ortiz, Herrera, and Orozco, best prospect in my opinion, great talent and is improving fast.

That's what I thought it was for Lomachenko. I do agree that Berchelt might be a better fight, but there's more to gain in my opinion fighting the Commey vs Lopez winner. Personally I think he can do pretty good against Commey, but who knows. I think people might be overthinking the last fight Lopez had, he could've had an off night.

I need to watch more of him.

Is Canelo vs Kovalev official yet?

I think Commey wins at this stage. It's very annoying how people overhype Lopez and talk Lomachenko vs Lopez as if it is the fight to be made, no way he should be ranked higher than Campbell. I don't buy the excuses, he struggled because Nakatani was underrated, but mostly because he had never had a learning fight, might just be a hype job, but he was inexperienced, arrogant, his trainer is a fool, and he is not top 2 in his division, if you ask me, Campbell beats Commey, so the undisputed fight for Lomachenko would be easier than the Campbell fight.

Not as far as I know, it is being negotiated, but not finalised.

Pacquiao vs Mikey is in negotiations, looks like we'll see that fight next.

I think that Lopez is overhyped. However, his last fight could've just been an off night. I don't know much about Nakatani so that's why I thought of that. I just think it's crazy how people are thinking that Lomachenko is ducking Lopez. Commey is no slouch, he can beat Lopez, even in Commeys losses he still looked very good. Campbell is also underrated. It's still up in the air on who Lomachenko will face for undisputed, it could be neither of them if Haney or possibly Davis spoil it.

What do you think of Canelo vs Kovalev?

I don't like the fight at all to be honest.

Champion97's picture

It doesn't matter, he wouldn't have proved he was good by beating Nakatani, he is over hyped, not a top 3 prospect in my opinion, and if he is as good as people say, he simply is not ready for Lomachencko.

Very interesting fight, Canelo is fighting 3 weights above his natural weight class, 2 weights above the weight he fights at, fighting a devastating puncher. I'm interested to see what the weight limit is, and rehydration clause. You?

Why not? Both the same size naturally, one has just done a lot better than the other when it came to fighting bigger opponents, that's a 50/50 fight, a great fight in my opinion.

Champ who picks the fights that are highlighted on the front page? Not looking to criticize, just find them to be odd choices

This Loma v Campbell fight to me is certainly deserving

I don't know, I think they are based on the most recent and highest amount of cards, this isn't my site, I do a lot of work because they people who started it are very busy.
