Re: Fights for 22

Holidays good and the same to you mate. I like your approach, a lot less room for disappointment in your list. The couple of billion dollars it would take to run the 175 WBSS on my list might be a bit of a stretch :-)
1 thing I will add, I feel a little bit of injustice on John Ryder;s behalf over the Morrell situation. I think they should get that fight on before Morrel is allowed to move on with his career; not sure if you agree?

Re: Fights for 22

lol yes and money would be even less of a problem than boxing politics and sides of the street way I see it why be an optimistic or pessimistic boxing fan when you can be a realistic one

injustice for what? Ryder decided to turn down thE Morrell task I don't feel that would set Morrell career too far back but that scalp would definitely have been a boost

anyways Daniel Jacobs vs John Ryder was in the works for early next year in the UK but talks are that cvid related travel restrictions could derail plans let's hope not

Re: Fights for 22

On Ryder Morrell, injustice because they let a 2 and 0 guy fight for an interim when Ryder was ranked above him, then elevated him to super without having to fight Ryder, then they mandated it 3 times and let Morrell fight voluntaries 3 times. Ryder wouldn't have turned it down because he sees himself as a strong favourite in the fight but I am very interested as to where you heard that. Last I heard was around August, they had about 10 days left to agree a deal before it went to purse bids and then it all faded into obscurity. Seems like they couldn't agree a deal and Hearn refused to pay for the fight or both promotors agreed not to pursue it; I'm just guessing, all very strange but I do see Ryder as the victim in the situation.
Agree Jacobs fight would be a good one for both guys.

Re: Fights for 22

Yes WBA moved Morrell up the rankings but they also mandated the Ryder fight twice and Ryder ended up turning the opportunity down not once but twice once for June 26th earlier this year and the other Dec 18th can't say I blame anyone in Team Morrell for that and certainly far from any sort of injustice lol
my guy reassures me that Jacobs vs Ryder could still be on for Feb 12th next year time will tell

Re: Fights for 22

Where did you hear he turned it down? Only asking because I don't think that's right. See below

As you say, it might work out for the best anyway

Re: Fights for 22

Ortiz Martin winner vs. Ruiz is your HW dream fight for 2022? Man a lot better fights than that can and likely will be made at HW in 2022 lol

Re: Fights for 22

All good and the same to you Felipe. I hadn't heard about Russell Magsayo, interesting to see what he's got left. I think if he's half the guy he was, he should make light work of Magsayo; you?

Re: Fights for 22

Yea mate it's been announced for January 22 with Matias vs Ananyan 2 as the co-main. As far as Magsayo's chances I give him a puncher's chance. Russell's speed and reflexes may be Magsayo's undoing and I could see him getting outboxed for 12 rounds, but I'm not convinced Russell's motivation is there which could lead to an early upset for Magsayo in 2022. I give Russell a higher chance but coming off a 2 year layoff against a big puncher and opponent like Magsayo is dangerous, and I wouldn't be shocked if he pulled off the upset.

Re: Fights for 22

Seems like a more than fair assessment to me, although I've never been too sure of Russell's motivation. The guy seems to have been running on pure talent his whole career.

That's the Christmas cheer I was looking for; Alexander Moustache is a winner for me but I need a clue on Together Duringvalley.
Happy holidays fella.

Re: Fights for 22

hey man! how you been? that's Junto Nakatani for ya lol! Same man Christmas Cheers!

Re: Fights for 22

All good mate, glad to see you back. Hope you and the family are well?
Nakatani; Mr DuringValley himself. I've let myself down there.

Re: Fights for 22

Same. Yeah, I took some time off went to Russia for 3 weeks, went dune buggying out in the Nevada desert (a bucket list item of mine), then had to go do an emergency trip to look out after my folks over in the Caralackies were they live they contracted whatever Greek lettered variant we're up to now but they both recovered well. but anyways, hope you and the family is doing well. Happy New Year!

Re: Fights for 22

Excuse my ignorance because I've never heard of the Caralackies but glad to hear your parents are recovered.
I thought I was doing alright until I heard your adventures but everybody healthy and that's the main thing. Russia, any sort of motor sport in the Nevada desert and fishing in any iconic spot are all bucket list and I've genuinely been considering moving to Canada these last few years so need to get out on a reccy once the Greek alphabet furore dies down.
Happy New Year to you too.

Re: Fights for 22

Really well-thought out and I note there's no Crawford-Spence or Ryan Garcia - Tank because they are just unrealistic, I suppose. Really like the Plant-Saunders fight and the WBSS at 175 is an inspired idea. Let's hope they're listening. Sleeper fight in these could be Andrade-Jermall as Andrade is starting to get more offense-minded and looks hungry, but of course Jermall is a beast. And what about Jermell-Castano, that could be a great rematch? And can we slip in Ryan Garcia-Devon Haney at 135? And if they're both frauds, who exposes who?

Re: Fights for 22

Thanks for saying so but the truth is I was just being entirely selfish with no second thought for money or politics. The 100 dollar fight card is an enigma to the British fan but I'd certainly pay that and more for the 175 tournament I mentioned. As for 135, I excluded Garcia because I'm unsure about how he's going to come back from the mental health troubles and I excluded Haney because even though I have no doubt he's the real deal, I think making 135 is detracting from his performances quite a bit, not sure if he should just give up the ghost and move to 140. Same thing with Spence. 100% the real deal but I don't see the jeopardy in a Spence Crawford fight at 147; Crawford wipes the floor with him but Spence could become undisputed at 154 and 160 in 2 years if he wanted to. Jermell Castano rematch should be on there, you're right but I had to shoe-horn one of them out to push Spence to 154. You should do a list, just a bit of fun.
