What's going on? This really shouldn't be allowed.
Nik the Greek in his last fight fought(and stopped in one round) a debutant, in his next fight on Saturday he's fighting another guy on debut. The week after both Cairo George (13-1) and Not Beauchamp (14-1) are fighting debutants and then next month Gunnar Jackson (25-10-3) is fighting a guy on debut, Somebodies gonna get hurt soon.

after all the hype it looks like we are going to get a fight. How is this fight going to look, once the two get in the ring? How interested are you? and will this become the biggest PPV event of all time
just the pre fight alone should be epic levels of fuckery

  Robert Berridge (a retrospective)
Posted by: Ibeabuchi - 06-05-2017, 11:14 AM - Forum: NZBoxChat - Replies (7)

Now the Butcher has hung up the gloves, lets have a closer look and discuss your thoughts and memories re his career
My favorite stretch of his career was from 2011-2014, in that part of his career he fought Kerry Foley twice, Blake Caperello, Trent Broadhurst, Joel Casey, Serge Yannick and Daniel Mckinnon. The only fight in that bunch Ive never seen was the Caparello fight, has anyone in here seen it? Ive heard it was close
The McKinnon fight was pone of the best undercard fights Ive seen on a NZ card, just a brutal fight and typical of a vintage Berridge peformance. The second Foley fight is also a great bout
That was Robbies level I believe because you just have to watch what kovalev did to Caparello to realise Rob would have been eaten up by elite level competition. Eventually it would all come crashing down with Vasily Lepihkin who dismantled him in a US showcase, possible Berridges worst showing.
As his career began to wind down he didnt take any easy fights and one of his best showings came against Eider Alvarez where he went the distance and landed heavy shots throughout. Honorable mention also to his fight with Sam Rapira which was a great local matchup
The biggest letdown for me was the Tahia Berridge fight, with all the anger and build up it ended up stinking out the ASB stadium as Adrian put on his running shoes and Rob looked slow and unable to cut off the ring
Anyways let me read your memories and thoughts on the Butcher

Anyone see this fight?  Sky usually tapes fights on the weekends for during the week.  I really like Russell, he looked good.  The Dirrell fight was the one where Dirrell was hit after the bell, his opponent was disqualified, and Dirrell's opponent smacked the other fighter with a great combination.  Too bad, as I thought Dirrell was losing the fight:

  Joshua v klitschko 2, looking very likely
Posted by: Infern0 - 05-15-2017, 11:25 PM - Forum: NZBoxChat - Replies (14)

Good fight, see both as having a chance to win.

Klitschko will know he needs to go all in if he hurts joshua.

For joshua id like to see him lose 5-7lbs, work on his stamina and mobility a little bit.

Could be a super cautious rematch?

But i think for joshua he needs to realize that when he came forward hunting klitschko down, klitschko couldnt compete in a firefight... so being cautious and letting klitschko fight at mid-long range is helping him.

Any tactical thoughts on this potential rematch?

  David Nyika WSB
Posted by: james5000 - 05-15-2017, 05:11 PM - Forum: NZBoxChat - Replies (10)

Anyone catch Nyika's fight in the World series of boxing?

The kid is developing physically he looks like a man now and really rocked the African chap badly,
Nyika seems to throw a lot of slapping punches with zero authority especially to the body, but when he loaded up on the right hand he has powahhhhhh!

I hope he can keep on training the house down and I see him as being a genuine medal prospect in 2020
