boxing fights 26/03/2016

I watched the kell brook fight and as expected a waste of my time, just a mandatory, kell gained absolutely nothing but an undeserved W over a weak opponent.

chris eubank jr, not really interesting guy to watch but he is improving

and lastly the ppv ward vs barrerra the one i had my eyes on, the undercard was almost putting me to sleep, but there was action from both fighters jo jo diaz is very quick and has fast combinations that he rocked valez i think his name was, with some good shots and was suprised to see him just keep coming forward using the wide head movements just smothering diaz and cut him at the side of the eye and it was effective to some degree. but diaz won it.

then the main event, andre ward being one of my favourite fighters, this time in the light heavy weight division, he was powerful and still had his cat like reflexes and power but not so much on his toes a little flat footed, but that knockout was awesome, barerra was built tall and looked dangerous but he did not show it, his defence need improvement no head movement, he would try and just overpower him as he is the bigger fighter and looked taller and has a bigger reach but expected some more boxing but it didn't happen as he is a powerful type of guy. well deserved win for ward, but i don't think he is ready for kovalev he is just a destroyer.

thanks! I was going to post a thread about Ward but forgot.

ya he looked VERY good considering how many times he's fought in the last 5 years. I definitely think he needs 1 or 2 more fights though before he goes at Kovalev. Kovalev is at the top of his game. Ward will need to get rid of a bit more rust before he gets in there with the Punisher. He has some rust regarding letting his punches go, and tightening up his defense a bit more. He got hit with some weak jabs that he probably normally would have slipped. Overall though I think he could still make it a competitive 12 round fight with Kovalev if they fought tomorrow. I'd just like to see Ward in peak form for that fight.. that's a mega-fight.

jojo diaz was impressive for sure. velez looked alot bigger. I'm def looking forward to seeing him fight again. like you said, very quick hands.

i missed eubank jr.

I'm actually looking forward to Bradley / Pacquiao 3.. I DON'T THINK Bradley actually DESERVES a third fight, but considering he suffered injuries to his legs in both fights and still made it competitive, a third fight could be interesting. Especially now that Bradley has ATLAS in his corner, seems like they are made for each other. I just hope Bradley stays healthy in that damn third fight so we can really see him go to war with pac.

pc!

I watched the last three rounds of the eubanks fight.
but i agree with you, bradley doesn't deserve it, a bad choice, I think atlas can light a fire under bradley and make it competitive but this might lead to bradley going to toe to toe which will go badly for bradley, if he can stick to boxing, I think he may be able to pull off an upset like in the second fight, but bradley just focussed on power later on the rounds. I want to see how pacquiao performs, since his mayweather fight.

in the eubank jr fight, chris blackwell suffered a serious beating he is in an induced coma with bleeding in the brain from the fight, chris eubank himself told eubank jr to aim for the body as he was being beaten severely. I am going to watch the entire fight and see again but i remember blackwell fighting back so i understand why ref didn't stop it.

interesting.. i initially thought that eubank sr was trying to save the other fighter.. but.. after watching it again, it seems he was really just telling eubank jr that head shots aren't going to end him, so end him to the body.

still good that he told him not to hit the head, but it doesn't seem like he was trying to prevent further damage on blackwell.. IMHO

as I do remember hearing eubank sr telling his son to aim for the body, which I think he was trying to stop the fight and maybe save the other fighter, but I don't think his son might have listened all that much as he was still throwing the uppercuts but the punches to the head was less powerfull, maybe listened a little, but i recall the corner telling him that you do it your way as if they didn't want to listen his dad, which i think they feel was responsible for his lose to saunders. my 2 cents
