Re: Lawrence Okolie

Does that mean Jack and Kovalev (among others) turned down the shot? Seems odd

Re: Who advises Dillian Whyte? Have they done a good job?

Would echo the above in that he's been advised very well. Must've been making £1m+ for a good few fights pre-COVID, and a terrific payday from the Fury fight. Had he stepped up to that level at any point he'd have lost. Was considered a dangerous challenger despite ability level not quite reflecting...

Re: BoxRec Forum HW Top 15 ranking - Whyte vs. Franklin / Jalolov vs. Harper

Wasn't terribly impressed with Whyte, not sure he'd have done any better than Parker against Joyce, but he did edge the win by winning the championship rounds against a decent operator. Keep him at 8.

Re: Richard Riakporhe vs. TBA | Sky Sports - 12 November 2022

I told him to go for Goulamirian, even if it means fighting for peanuts to get the strap. He's looking at Makabu or Opetaia , but I'm guessing on this short notice it'll be some knockover job. He just wants that strap to get the unification bout with Okolie, before he moves up to HW. I saw that the...

Re: Janibek Alimkhanuly vs. Denzel Bentley | ESPN - November 12, 2022

Should probably be fighting Cash since he KO'd Bentley last year but it's not unusual for new beltholders to take a softer route in their first defense. At least he's keeping busy Doubt they'd want Cash potentially taking the belt out of their control. It'll be the Queensbury-Top Rank connection th...

PPV then, wonder what the very good domestic fight will be ? Nigel Benn v Chris Eubank Junior ?

Re: BoxRec Forum HW Top 15 ranking - Makhmudov vs. Takam

Not averse to putting him in at 15, but I can support leaving him out as well. Waiting for Hunter-Fury, I think that'll give us a rightful 15th place fighter.

He'd beat Jack fairly handily.
Jack is likely to fight Okolie though, he's just been upgraded to WBO number 1 (off the back of the undeserved win over Rivera).

I usually look at it as a whole. Just as many are saying he shouldn't remain at 8 (in Ortiz's case).. Usually best to find a middle.. I think in an instance like this it'd be better to either go with the majority, or make a new poll asking whether Ortiz should remain at 8 or be dropped down (just t...
