"Boxing gonna be on fire for the rest of 2019"
Thu Aug-08-19 05:08 AM by Boogie Stimuli

  

          

These are some of the standout fights for me. Feel free to talk about any of them or bring up some fights you're excited about.


Andy Ruiz vs Anthony Joshua rematch in Nov or Dec
(First fight was upset of the year so far)

J-Rock vs Hurd rematch Dec 14th
(First fight was fight of the year so far imo. Hurd refuses to fight anyone not enrolled in VADA 90 days prior to the fight and recently asked Hurd what's up with him waiting so long. Hopefully Hurd takes care of that.)

Errol Spence Jr vs Shawn Porter Sept 28th
(Finally happening)

Sergey Kovalev vs Anthony Yarde Aug 24th
(Just about everyone is saying Yarde may not be ready for this challenge. He's a tough young dude but very green in the ring. He didn't even have many amateur fights. He's convinced himself that he's gonna KO Kovalev in The Krusher's home country tho.)

Vasyl Lomachenko vs Luke Campbell Aug 24th
(In the UK. Admittedly, I never miss a Loma fight.)

Regis Prograis vs Josh Taylor Oct 5th
(World Boxing Super Series tournament finale at 140. The winner will be a unified champion and will hopefully face the only other unified champion in the weight class, Jose Ramirez, for undisputed.)

Naoya Inoue vs Nonito Donaire Nov 7th
(World Boxing Super Series tournament finale at 118)

Claressa Shields vs Ivana Habazin Oct 5th
(Shields is dropping down to 154 to challenge a reigning champion in a 3rd weight class. Should she pull it off, she'll be the fastest boxer to ever become a 3-division champion, male or female. It'll only be her 10th professional fight.)

Heather Hardy vs Amanda Serrano Sept 13th
(Serrano is a 7-division champion, but all but 1 of those titles were vacant. Hardy is the smaller fighter here, which may influence the outcome. This fight will be at 126. Serrano's last fight was at 118, but her fight right before that was at 140. No idea how she's fluctuating in weight like that without PED's, unless...)

Devin Haney vs Zaur Abdullaev Sept 13th
(I never miss a Haney fight either. What's good about this fight, is that it will supposedly place him in contention for a title shot. He's on a collision course with Lomachenko should Loma stay at 135. That's a dream fight.)

Artur Beterbiev vs Oleksandr Gvozdyk - being finalized now
(If you don't know these two guys, get to know them. This has classic fight written all over it. Two light heavyweights (175) who can punch and box. Gvozdyk may have the boxing advantage and have Teddy Atlas in his corner as trainer, but Beterbiev will beat the dogshit out of just about anybody if he can touch them.)

Dewayne Beamon vs Juan Franciso Estrada Aug 24th
(Beamon is come-forward fighting prospect who's only lost one bout which he immediately avenged. Estrada has the title that he won from the very skilled Wangek. Estrada has only lost to top opposition, so this is Beamon's chance to prove himself as such.)

I was at the first fight. I was already high on JRock but he was coming off two lackluster fights against Ishe Smith and the kid from Chicago. He was clearly the better boxer against Gallimore but appeared to fade late in the fight which made it closer than it needed to be. This is why I slightly favored Hurd. He is massive for 154 and we have seen him come on strong in the second half of fights against elite competition. JRock put on arguably the best performance of his career. It was a decisive victory. Just as strong late as he was early. I expect Hurd to come with a different game plan. I still think JRock is a better fighter but it will be interesting to see what kind of adjustments Hurd can make. I think people want to make it FOTY because it was considered an upset. But in reality, the fight was pretty one sided.

I expect Prograis to wash anybody at 140. He is going to have to come to 147 pretty soon. I would mind seeing a guy like Mikey Garcia give him a shot at 140 before he moves. Could be a great fight.

He definitely will. He fired his old trainer and even cut his hair off lol. It sure will be interesting to see what he can pick up in a few months.

I think it's both fight of the year and performance of the year so far. FOTY because as great of a performance as Julian put on, Hurd was still a tough customer, and dominating that fight was still a lot of work for him due to Hurd's size. Hurd remained a threat throughout. I often agree that domination isn't necessarily a "good fight" but this one is an exception imo. *shrugs*


>I expect Prograis to wash anybody at 140.


I actually think Jose Ramirez gives Prograis and really good fight... a 50/50 fight even. Josh Taylor should give him a good one as well although I do favor Regis to pull it off. Hopefully that fight doesn't fall through, as Regis and Dibella filed a lawsuit against the WBSS for lack of payment. They're in contact and trying to work it out tho.

It would.
