Default Bika's fights are just unwatchable

I just can't get through a sitting of a Bika fight

He makes any fight unwatchable

Yeah is almost anti-boxing really. I always felt this way about Ricky Hatton. It's just a boxing match full of fouling. Garbage to watch.

Yesterdays fight was bad but their first fight was good. It's a bit hit and miss with Sakio he's hardly a ring technician but some of his fights are fun to watch.

Bika-Codrington was very entertaining.

It depends on the opponent...although yes, when bad it really is quite unbearably bad, and is mostly Bika's fault.

Things improved a bit under Kevin Cunningham, actually - but obviously the Dirrell rematch showed that even with some fine-tuning and working on some actual boxing skills (as opposed to just wrestling and brawling) he is capable of being in some absolute stinkers if the style clash is bad - which is a coin toss any given night with Bika.

Truer of Bika than Ward.

(although, ironically, Bika is the more likely to produce highlight-reel knockdowns or knockouts than Ward...but in terms of the actual grind, who is more viewable per 36 minute session, I think Ward is actually far less gruesome to behold)

Never a truer word spoken. His fights constantly go to sh*t. I would rather watch Ward over Bika all day.

Bika is frustrating the same way Vic Darch is too watch, when they actually use a decent jab and straight punches etc to set up a knock out they look brilliant, but then majority of the time they swing like untrained brawlers from the get go and you know they are going to not win a many rounds against technical boxers.
