I love his style, i have taken in all of his fights live to date and the KO that came with 2 seconds left was great , it shows you that Ko's come even when you really dont go running after them.. The Ko came naturally by being patient.....

Only one word to describe his boxing in that fight: perfect.

Yep. The smoothest I've seen him box in the pros! Enjoyed watching it. Znaak, when you turn pro, will you be a middleweight as well ?

Damn, I'm a light heavy now. I'm still getting bigger, but I'd imagine I'd stay at light heavy if I turned pro.

HBO's commentators were all over Korobov's nuts during his fight.

Yeah, in fact too much cheerleading for my taste, especially considering who he was fighting. But, well, HBO is not above hyping guys like Arreola, Korobov at least has the potential to deserve it.

I thought it sounded like Steward! Surprised he's being so full of praise for him, given that he doesn't train him, but then Korobov is a brillian prospect. Hope he keeps it together at the top level.

Regardless: Korobov is awesome to watch apply his craft.
He is rather thickly muscled though.

I wouldn't call him small for a middleweight, he's pretty thickly muscled and 180cm tall, which is, what, 6'0 or a little under? He doesn't exactly have a tall guys style, and can mix it up on the inside. I don't see a size problem there.

It's funny, a guy I was talking to at the gym I work at today who watched the PPV asked me if I had seen Korobov and was all excited about him. And this is a casual fan, mind you.

big up korobov from ireland

saw him fight a couple of times but properly on saturday and hes possibly the best of all the am's in the world that have just turned pro with convincing arguments from darren sutherland of ireland and frank gavin of england

watched with non boxing fans and they were going oooooohhhh and ahhhhh at his punches. lucky for me i told them at the start of the night look out for this guy which made me look good

hes a certain world champ and hes the pefect size for a middleweight who in 4/5 years will be a super middle
