Boxing: Fights coming up

BJS was never going to win, he didn’t have the power to trouble Canelo (demonstrated by less than half his win being ko’s) and flicking out jabs hoping for a points win was, frankly, a daft strategy because we all know which way the cards will go (two had Canelo four rounds up at the time of the stoppage which was, shall we say, a touch generous).

Can’t really argue with the corner for waiving it off after a pretty horrific injury, which maybe might teach BJS a bit of humility after his ridiculous pre-fight ramblings and the slating he gave Dubois.

It was interesting to see 73,000 people in an indoor arena, good job we’re not in the midst of a pandemic.

Well Taylor did the job, but Ramirez looked so far off it.  Only half fit at best.  Pyric victory for Taylor who looked bang average mostly.  Him getting all those belts just shows how poor that division is at the moment.

Watched the DVR recording of Taylor vs Ramirez last night, first time I'd seen Taylor. He looks a big strong guy for a Light Welterweight, particularly his upper body,  his hands were too fast and he was too strong overall for Ramirez, beautiful uppercut in the 6th round to put Ramirez on the canvass.

Scoring was again questionable IMHO, all three judges scored it 114 to 112 for Taylor, considering Taylor put Ramirez on the canvass twice so without those knockdowns it would have been a draw.....kwakkers.

Yeah he is good, but not as good as that fight made him look. Ramirez looked like a total slob who hadn't trained since lock down and couldn't be bothered. Bit of a Ruiz job second time round vs Ant.

Credit to Taylor, job done. Will be interesting to see where he goes next in a weak division. Don't rate him as much more than above average, but fair play to the guy, he's done the bizz.

The card was about right, when you factor in the Vegas factor. Any foreign fighter starts at least a round down.

Vasily Lomachenko  made his comeback fight last night vs Masayoshi Nakatani (19-2-0) in Nevada. Loma won by TKO in the 9th round, Loma was just too good for the Japanese fighter who was too brave for his own good. Rematch with Teofimo Lopez scheduled for later this year, Lopez has previously beat Nakatani but didn't stop him.

Also, Gervonta Davis (25-0-0, 24 by KO) TKO'd Mario Barrios (26-1-0) in the 11th round in Atlanta handing Barrios his first defeat. The tank really is a tank!
