Re: Amin Asikainen vs Piotr Wilczewski who wins
No offence, but Asikainen has not fought in a level he could beat Sylvester, since his loss to him in June 2007.
I know that you guys think styles make fights in this case. I disagree. I think the sheer level of Sylvester“s performance is completely in different spheres from Asikainen.
You could see that Sylvester“s preciseness and jab caused plenty of problems for Asikainen, and those problems would multiply if they were to meet today.
Sylvester is no KO artist, neither was Wilczewski. But with a steady work rate and careful defense, one is able to break down the rugged and careless Asikainen in the late rounds.
EBU never keeps eliminators anyway, so it“s pointless to critisize the rankings. Wilczewski and Asikainen were the most credited guys to go after the belt, since Magee went on to meet Bute and Balzsay refused.
