Default *Grzegorz Proksa*

Hes fighting Hope on the 7th, in 2 weeks from today. Will lightning strike twice or will Proksa finally get the job done?

I say the latter, Proksa TKO 10.

Proksa's looking much better than before the first fight, according to his FB page, this time he will have Fiodor Łapin in his corner, he can't lose this time

Super G by TKO

Hope proved himself extremely resiliant and at one point started to walk through many of Proksa's punches, so he's got the chin. Proksa needs to be active and outbox him in order to win, he shouldn't even be thinking about stoppage. I understand he wanted to look for a quick way out because of the nasty cut, but he should not try to make that mistake again and just do what he does best - overwhelm his opponents by speed, volume and angles.

proksa to avenge his loss, not sure about him stopping hope though. id say hes sharpened up tactically, and wins a wide decision.

although, should he lose, its difficult to see where he goes from here...

This is really a make it or break it fight for Proksa, although I don't see why he should lose, since he should have won the last fight, and this rematch not even happening, tbh.

Just a minor stepback. Tis all. A wake up call if you will. Lennox had one vs. McCall, Tyson had one vs. Douglas, Klitschko with Sanders etc etc...

Proksa learned more from this loss than he would if he won. I have seen pretty much 95% of Proksa's fights, and in each one he dominated the opponents. Hope was tough and brought his A game and Proksa more than likley treated him as some Welsh scrub and would be a walkover. Big mistake. But hes still young and I think he will whip the floor with Hope this time around.

Unfortunately Proksa has a glass jaw, which will get exposed when he steps up to world level. He's a good fighter though, with an entertaining style, I see him cautiously outboxing Hope to a UD in the rematch

It seems like a simple fix for Proksa. He punched himself out early thinking he'd blast Hope out. Just box smart and I'd be suprised if he didn't break Hope down later in the fight. Out of gas and blood in his eye, Hope still couldn't take him out.

Getting staggered repeatedly by feather fisted journeyman Kerry Hope suggests he has a glass jaw. Imagine if it was Sergio or Golovkin hitting him with those shots...
