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...

Need to announce an opponent for Riakporhe soon.
Glowacki? Jack?
They never reached out to Glo’s team
Strange that, who do you think it could be then?

That bout will now be on Riakporhe's card..
Yh saw that. Frazer Clarke-Sokolowski also on that card too I think. Possibly Kongo on it as well.

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...

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

Yeh, he doesn't need to vacate it does he.. uNLESS HE WINS THE WORLD TITLE. I didn't have Denzel Bentle...

Re: Anthony Joshua vs. TBA - December 2022

PPV then, wonder what the very good domestic fight will be ? Nigel Benn v Chris Eubank Junior ? Maybe Buatsi-Johnson/Buatsi-Smith (I'd be leaning towards this, but maybe they'll have it as a headliner). Cordina's fighting Rakhimov or I'd have said Cordina-Barrett as another possibility.

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).

We have another HW fight on this card. It’s our very own BoxRec top 15.. Frank Sanchez vs. Carlos Negron Was supposed to fight earlier this year. Sanchez better look impressive in getting this guy out of here, because if it's just another shutout UD I'm voting him out of the top 15. Hughie-Hunter w...

Re: Chris Billam-Smith Vacated European Cruiserweight Belt

What's happening with the Opetaia fight, I thought that was rumoured for CBS? Are they going to fight the winner of Whateley-Masternak instead? I think Riakporhe rematch would be great but equally I think they'll be trying to get him a belt and then saving him for Okolie, as they know they can't mak...

Re: BoxRec Forum HW Top 15 ranking - Ruiz vs. Ortiz

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...

Re: BoxRec Forum HW Top 15 ranking - Ruiz vs. Ortiz

Think the main issue with Ruiz is, he deserves to be above Whyte. But Parker is only fighting in 2 weeks. If Joyce beats Parker, he's gonna leapfrog them all anyway most likely. But when Parker beats Joyce, he'll have a chance to overtake Wilder. Beating Parker shouldn't put Joyce over Whyte. Parke...

Re: BoxRec Forum HW Top 15 ranking - Ruiz vs. Ortiz

I'd put Ruiz above Whyte, and Ortiz should probably remain at 8 for now . The fight was basically a draw and a few even had Ortiz winning even with the KD's.. It's not that I think Ortiz deserves to be dropped, it's more of the names that are currently below him.. Don't deserve it. Precisely, I wou...
