What did you think of the fight?

Champion97's picture

Great performance from Kovalev, terrible from Alvarez.

I heard that Alvarez was looking for one big punch the whole fight, is that accurate?

Also do you think Kovalev can still be elite or what? He's been very inconsistent as of late. I still think Beterbiev and Bivol beat him.

Champion97's picture

He was, but he was also banking on Kovalev tiring, without pushing the pace, there was a real lack of urgency, Kovalev's stamina has improved somewhat, because as we talked about, part of his issues were down to him nkt respecting his coaches, well McGirt brought the best out of him. Kovalev did tire after about 7 rounds, but Alvarez couldn't build on it, couldn't deal with Kovalev's jab, Kovalev did a great job of putting less into his shits than he normally does, and still throwing meaningful punches, but me and Gold were talking about this, and something else I said, was that Alvarez not only let some early rounds slip, but he was also a punching bag at times, he took a lot of draining punches, and when you take so many clean shots, you will likely be even more tired than your opponent, and late on, Alvarez had had all the gas beaten out of his tank. I do think Kovalev was made to look better than he was because Alvarez was so unprepared and inactive, but Kovalev was better than he's been since the Ward fights, definitely a combination of both.

Not Bivol, Beterbiev is interesting, I'd have to think about that, Kovalev proved me wrong, is much more experienced than Beterbiev, but Beterbiev is younger and fresher, both have weak chins, especially Beterbiev, both are massive punchers, would be a great fight.

That's a bad gameplan to follow, hoping he tires and relying on one knockout punch. I still need to watch the fight, but from what it seems the change of trainer is helping Kovalev. I remember in the Ward builup, JDJ said that Kovalev is stubborn, and you never heard that with Mcgirt.

Both fights are great, whats next for Kovalev?

Champion97's picture

Changing trainers can be the making of a fighter, it can also be a mistake, Broner did not benefit from switching trainers, neither did Quigg, Kovalev, Groves, Maidana, certainly did. That is a sign that Kovalev, for whatever reason, has grown up, changed his attitude, improved his stamina not necessarily by working harder but by doing as he is told, doing everything right.

Possibly Bivol, Gvozdyk is with Top Rank, so that shouldn't be too tough a fight to make, but Bivol vs Kovalev is a fight that has been talked about for a while, amd Bivol has said he wants Kovalev.

What did you think of Tank vs Ruiz?

I think he realized that, if he loses this is pretty much it for him. That's probably why he started with the changes in his attitude and everything else.

Do you think it's likely he'll fight one of those 3 next? I think it's likely since they are all with top rank.

I saw it, good win, but I'd like to see him fight a better name soon, what about you?

About to watch Fury vs Wilder, If I have a different card I'll post it, but if it's the same round by round I won't. Do you watch fights on all the best fights at all?

Champion97's picture

I think so.

He needs to step up his opposition, this time, it wasn't his fault, but if Tank vs Tenshin is next, that is disgusting.

Cool, I've seen it twice and have the same score, 8-4 for Fury, a close win, but it was a draw at the end of the day, so there has to be a rematch.

Occasionally.

What do you think of Alvarez vs Jacobs?

It's been a while since he's had a credible opponent, maybe since Walsh. A fight with that Tenshin guy would be horrible, not only is Tenshin's company throwing him to the wolves (Mayweather and Davis) for a payday, Davis is also getting no actual experience fighting him.

I thought it was a clear Fury win still, but yes a rematch is necessary since no one technically won.

I like the fight, really hope Jacobs wins this one, what about you?

Champion97's picture

Good point, it doesnt seem like it, but he is still quite inexperienced.

People all have their opinions, but the British judge scored it a draw, there was no USA judge, a lot of people think it was a bad decision, some think Wilder won, but I believe like Pacquiao vs Bradley, Kovalev vs Ward, Pacquiao vs Horn, as time goes on, the decision will get less controversial. It was a draw at the end of the day, we need a rematch.

Great match up, I think if Jacobs can repeat his performance against Golovkin, he has a great chance, even if he can't, he has a shot, but Alvarez might be too good, as well as the fighter in his prime. 100% rooting for Jacobs.

In case you haven't already heard, May is likely to be the time for Rodriguez vs Inoue, also when Baranchyk vs Taylor os happening, Briedis vs Glowacki, in June

I think Floyd just likes to say things, he did say he will have as serious fight in May.

From watching it, I find it hard to make it a victory for Wilder, even a draw. I still want to watch it again to see if it's still a robbery, even though I do after 2 watches.

I think Canelo is improving more then Jacobs has. Jacobs needs to rise to the occasion to beat Canelo. I'm rooting for Jacobs but I think Canelo takes it.

I saw, it's good to see the wbss is still on, I thought that Baranchyk bailed on the tournament, good to see there are fight dates.

Also what's going on with GGG? I haven't heard much from him lately.

Champion97's picture

Respect your opinion, but again, I'm sure we can agree, the rematch should 100% be next, seems like it is 95% done.

I'm in the same boat.

Definitely, a tournament is always awesome in boxing.

I believe he signed with DAZN, 2 fight deal I believe.

I think it will be next, it's looking likely. I think Fury takes it. Also, do you think Joshua will eventually fight Fury at Wilder at some point?

I'm really pulling for Jacobs, but I feel Canelo is at his best now.

That's good, he can still go the undisputed route.

Thoughts on Joshua vs Miller?

Champion97's picture

I think Joshua will fight the winner eventually, too important fight not to happen, as Joshua says, both champions, same weight class, same era, they have to fight.

Tough fight for Joshua, Miller is strong, but Joshua has to be the favourite. You?
