What a shocker.

It was. If you get a chance to see it you should, it was one of those fights where two over the hill guys throw down. Quillin looked shockingly bad, his movement, defense, and punch selection were really poor from the beginning. Angulo looked poor and stiff as well but he fought his fight and it ended up working out. Both guys should retire in my opinion, I can see Quillin hanging them up but I think Angulo will continue.

I have a lot of catching up to do, I'm in the process of scoring Joet Gonzalez vs Rafael Rivera, I've started my analysis for Stevenson vs Gonzalez, but I'm holding off on a prediction until I've seen more of both fighters, it's a very interesting fight, who you got? I assume Stevenson, and if so, it might be another case of us disagreeing not on the potential or improvement of the fighters, but just the improtance of the timing aspect and how many fights a prospect needs before fighting at a certain level.

Yeah, I have Stevenson. I think Joet Gonzalez is good though, it will be a competitive fight. I think Stevenson has enough experience to beat someone like Gonzalez, who is more experienced than him as a pro but less experienced as an amateur and has less natural ability than Stevenson.

It's a pick em, not an easy fight to predict, I agree Stevenson has more potential, but we'll see, Gonzalez beat Tank as an amateur if you didn't already know, had a WSB fight as well, but Stevenson was a very good amateur. Gonzalez did well to stop Avila, was the first to stop Guerrero, apart from the Rivera fight, he seems very capable of beating a relatively inexperienced Stevenson, but after 8 rounds, it's close, and if he is good enough to beat Stevenson now, you have to question why it was such a competitive fight when Diaz, Magdaleno beat Rivera easy.

I haven't seen the Rivera fight but he could have improved since then, I thought he looked very good in the Avila fight. I know Gonzalez was a good amateur as well but Stevenson was very good as you said. It is a good style matchup, Gonzalez will try to pressure Stevenson while Stevenson tries to box him on the outside.

I think he has improved since then, that's why I think he has a good shot to beat Stevenson.
I agree that's what his tactics should be, try to pressure him, cut off the ring, target the body, and I think because Stevenson is not an experienced professional, he won't be able to disallow Gonzalez from working on the inside once he's there, but based on what I've seen of Stevenson, the problem will be getting him on the ropes or making it an inside fight, because Stevenson might not give him the ground, has fast feet, great lateral movement, is explosive, throws fast combinations, it's hard to punch with him, and he might have to foot speed to get out of range before Gonzalez can attack. I might watch Stevenson vs Diaz before I make a prediction, plenty of time.
