"The BOXING Post - 1st quarter of 2024 "


          

Inoue ends 2023 as p4p #1 after becoming champion in a 4th weight class and now undisputed in 2. Bud was the 1st male to be undisputed in 2 divisions, but has only been a champ in 3. Inoue's divisional rise = 14 lbs, while Bud's = 12... and that's at smaller weight classes for Inoue. Bud is my favorite fighter, but I gotta give the #1 spot to Inoue now.

Wilder ends the year getting outclassed by Joseph Parker after a year of inactivity. AJ looked really good on the same card. This is an AJ that I'd like to see more of.

We have some goood fights coming up. Beterbiev vs Smith & Mayer vs Jonas are in January. Beterbiev and Bivol should be next, provided Beterbiev is successful, which most assume he will be. Will his unblemished KO streak continue?

Canelo seems to be under pressure to face David Benavidez. Let's hope that fight happens. David Morrell, however, is a dark horse at 168. Benavidez SEEMS to be avoiding him, but I would like to see Benavidez get his Canelo shot and then face Morrell, because that shot is overdue. Plus Morrell might beat him lol.

Bivol claims he wants to fight Opetaia. I think that's biting off more than he can chew just like Canelo did against him.

So much more going on, but I won't hog the floor.

What are yall paying attention to at the moment?

Hell he almost got stopped by Ortiz in the 1st fight. A taller southpaw who's on a roll would beat the breaks off this tentative Wilder we saw against Joseph Parker.

Callum Smith had never been down. Even Canelo just punched on his arms until he detached his bicep for 12 rds. Callum is tough, but they say Beterbiev's punches feel like a sledgehammer and ended up dropped Smith twice. Crazy thing is he doesn't even load up. Routine punches break mf's all the way down. He's now 20 - 0 with 20 KO's, having won all 3 of titles and KO'd 2 champions by KO. I gotta say he's the most devastating puncher in boxing.
This fight with Bivol is going to be very interesting.

The up and coming Christian Mbilli fought on the undercard. Very excited yet flawed fighter likes to fight up close without letting opponents breathe. He ate a lot of jabs from Murdock but eventually Murdock's corner stopped the fight after 6 rds.

His excellency, Turki Alalshikh, has expressed great interest in making the fight, and that's the only place its been discussed to happen. Even Bob Arum said he expects him to stage in there in Summer after Ramadan. Eddie Hearn is all about business with the Saudis.

I honestly don't care where it happens. I'm just ready to see it. My current most anticipated fight in boxing.

But Saudi ? 🗑️ 🗑️ 🗑️

He talks about Beterbiev vs Bivol at the 10:20 mark. Should go there automatically:

Many feel Mayer was robbed vs Baumgardner. I actually thought that was very even fight, and could've gone either way. Mayer beat Jonas tho. I gave Jonas 3 rds at most. Jonas clinched in multiples rounds in danger of being dropped. Mayer was never in such trouble. Mayer pushed the action AND landed the cleaner, more telling shots. There was really no metric by which Jonas won the fight.
But... one of my betting friends asked me for the right bet. I told him I had Mayer winning, technically, but she couldn't even win a close decision in the UK vs another American, so Jonas was probably the safe bet. *shrugs*
