Well some people were quite impressed and i tend to fall on that side of things.

Overall about as impressive an outing against Mchunu as one could envision. I think Lebedev might match up fairly well with Mchunu because he's smaller, mobile and powerful and maybe Briedis and Dorticos but i doubt any other CW handles him as well as Usyk did. Some of the combo's he let loose with were unreal.

Getting on the GGG/Jacobs card (which sound card of the year quality with the Gonzalez rematch too) is ideal although the available opponent list is minuscule because of all the rematches and mandatory stuff going on. Vlasov, Ramirez, Kucher, Szello, Hunter, Masternak are really the only guys available. Hope it's Vlasov he just fought, is the most accomplished contender among them coming off some good wins, is the same size, has some pop and skills it would make for an entertaining fight.

btw What are other peoples thoughts on Briedis/Huck i already gave some of mine but i find that a really interesting style matchup. Each guys strength plays into the others weakness.

That would be intriguing Briedis isn't very good inside particularly on defense so i would expect Huck to rough him up quite good when he gets there via caveman rushes but at the same time Briedis does possess the footwork to potentially play a successful matador much of the time to avoid it. Ola made him look foolish at times with his footwork especially the first half of their 2nd fight where he shut him out in the first 6 rounds and Briedis is much quicker and explosive athletically along with being a better counter puncher with a more formitable threat of power.

Just fucking with you, but I do think Briedis will win. By the way, anyone have a link for the Mchuhu/Usyk fight? I'm fairly certain that HBO Now will not broadcst the fight as they usually only broadcast the main event, and sometimes the co-main even if it is special enough. Last time they broadcast the co-main was for the Julian Rodriguez/Abraham Lopez fight.

@Lester1583's link is not available in my country.

Mchunu due to his style/dimensions stays in range.

Iron Gass' pressure is methodical but relentless.
With that walk through the punches mentality.

Sledgehammer's got that inhuman meldonium power.
A mere glancing blow can result in Mchunu lying on his back and counter punching stars while doctors trying to revive him.

Briedis boxed really well on the back foot against Charr. I think the Huck fight will be a competitive version of that fight, close on the cards with Briedis getting the late stoppage
True but Huck is much faster at closing the gap. From what i remember he struggled a bit against Durodola early because he could take Briedis' power and simply kept moving forward even though it wasn't at a fast pace. Glowacki had success standing his ground and throwing hard counters in the pocket when Huck rushed him (like when he was hurt after the KD) while Ola had success with tidy footwork and boxing in the 1st half of their 2nd fight. Briedis is capable of both and needs to alternate between the two.

That's true Gassiev would eat his shots without thinking twice and it would be much easier for him to land his right hand being orthodox and his nasty left hook to the body with Mchunu's stance/style.

Finished the fight. Yeah, I just don't think Mchunu matched up well from a stylistic standpoint against Usyk. He had to outbox a master boxer with a significant height and reach advantage.

Man, Usyk landed some crazy combos on the slippery Mchunu too. Uh, I hope Povetkin is still at the top level if Usyk decides to move up. I'd love to see the two fighting at heavyweight. I'd jizz myself seeing that in the ring. Match up extremely well stylistically too.

Pedvetkin is a joke, dosent even try an hide his shit anymore, because he can get away with it in Russia. Non ped povetkin gets the лайно beaten out of him
