lol You mad bro? Aside from the jab against Deutschastan is anything i said untrue?
WBC has ordered Huck vs Briedis for Interim Title, so Bellew can fight against Haye in heavyweight.
Huck has said NO to IBF and that position is for Wlodarczyk. Gevor vs Wlodarczyk, Eliminator IBF.
First, IBF ordered Gevor vs Huck. Later, WBC proposed Huck vs Briedis for the Interim Title. Huck has choosen to fight for WBC Interim Title. So, IBF has ordered Gevor vs Wlodarczyk.
But today, I've read that WBC has proposed a tournament, too. Wlodarczyk, Kudryashov, Durodola and Makabu: the winner, who has to win two bouts, will be the official challenger.
Therefore, Wlodarczyk must choose: tournament WBC or Eliminator IBF.
So if i understand Breidis vs Huck for interim title then the tournament would establish a new mandatory but it won't delay things since the interim winner would still have to unify with Bellew. That would be excellent, keeps the division moving forward with quality fights while Bellew gets gifted his payday. If Wlod drops out the tourney (which would be the easier and safest route to a title shot although you could argue the WBC Champion will be less dangerous than Gassiev in the title shot itself) the next highest rated guy is Glowacki.
Any combination of those four is quality stuff but i would prefer Kudryahov/Durodola II and Glowacki/Makabu as the first rematch is the most guaranteed slugfest possible. The only downside is all these mandatories and rematches remove virtually all potential opponents for Usyk. Kalenga, Vlasov, Ramirez, Kucher and the Americans like Hunter, Tabiti, Thomas are all that's left which fucking sucks.
- WBC tied up for 3 fights including the mandatory which is more than a year.
- IBF/WBA Swan/Gassiev rematch then winner fights Dorticos/Shumenov mandatory at least a year
Hopefully one of the Champions will unify with Usyk before their mandatory obligations.
Is Murat Gassiev Muslim? Thought his neck of the woods was Christian?
I forgot he was Ossetian you're right.
Dont insult mighty Huck. Them russian guys are easy work for him. as seen against Lebedev,Tokarev or Kucher!
I agree, i just didn't approve of your choice of words vova
Except Huck most definitely did NOT beat Lebedev. - and it wasn't even close.
Usyk has such a large height and reach advantage. I'm not sure Mchunu will do anything at all to give Usyk trouble. I can see a wide decision for Usyk here.
That's not good enough.
Sanya must impress.
Because of the size disparity and duel southpaws he'll probably struggle to land clean left power shots he'll be reliant on the jab but like Lester says he needs to find a way to impress.
Mchunu may not make that easy. - Unless he gasses like he did against Makabu.
When Mchunu's fresh, he's incredibly slippery. He's also great at attacking from a safe distance, despite his short reach. Maybe that's why he gasses: he has to move so much to overcome his size.
Can't wait for this fight, but it's another one where I don't want to see either man lose.
Have faith, my illuminati friend.
There are tons of 6'3 CWs Mchunu has fought guys like that his whole life. I think Usyk wins but in the early rounds mchunu could make it competitive. He will slow down though and Usyk will take over after a few rounds
Now we know why Drozd will never return.
Yes, but here you have a phenomenal boxer like Usyk. I think Usyk's style and talent will make it hard for Mchunu to get a lot of work done. I have my doubts this will be competitive at all.
Usyk - $75K
Mchunu - $100K
The skills are there but stamina isn't.
Mchunu is very slippery early on.
A hard task for any fighter.
Especially for a boxer/not a genuine heavy handed puncher like Usyk.
To wear him down slowly was the only way.
Which ruled out a highlight material performance.
This wasn't an impressive debut and not the kind of fight that attracts new fans/casuals.
But a good win over a stylistic nightmare nonetheless that solidifies Usyk as the arguable #1 in boxing's best division.
If only he had Bellew's powah...
