I'm basing my vote simply on who seems to want it more. I almost feel like Lacy got the will beat out of him last year where as Miranda is just likes to fight and brawl.

Bad match up for my boy IMO...... i think lacy is able to hammer him. I dont think Pantera has the work rate, combo punching, speed, or movement to trouble a healthy, 100% lacy....

Miranda would try walking him down, and imo, get a bit beat up towards the middle rounds and maybe stopped late.

Lacy just fought a hard full fight with one arm basically, pulling out the victory.... i think its safe to say he still wants it.

I like both guys, but I think Miranda gets hit too much and Lacy's chin would hold out longer. Lacy's still a bad matchup for anyone who would stand toe to toe and slug with him without the defense to make him miss. It'd be an exciting fight while it lasted, though.

Yes, his fight with Tsypko showed me he still has the hunger to win.

id love to agree with you man but, allan green doesnt have the chin of lacy, the power of lacy, the heart of lacy, once he got a taste of what Pantera was all about, he just tried to survive in there. Not only that but its a totally differant look that Lacy brings... Lacy is a in your face, bull of a fighter throwing overhand, fast, homerun type punches... Green fought the whole fight trying to survive, till he opened up... made pantera mad then got his ass beat lol! love that fight.

To be honest... i actually think Mirandas long arms work against him... Just look at his arms, they are just LONG...


but for his punching, i think his punches are fine, as far as the way he throws them... thats not the problem imo, its his actual ABILITY... to move around, footwork, having a gameplan of sorts... if his punches arent breaking you down, have something else... body shots, ect.

Lacy is a former champ while Miranda is nothing more than a crude brawler with no defense, I see Lacy pounding his ass en route to a KO in the mid rounds.

I agree, but I see the KO coming earlier.

Lacy actually knows how to box
Miranda does not.

Is Miranda going to rely on a strength advantage? Speed Advantage? Power Advantage?
IMO he has nothing over Lacy in any department, some fields are close but most fall firmly in Jeff's favour.
Plus Edison has 0 skills to fall back on.

Jeff probably shouldnt be coming back against him though but even if he does It ends painfully for the Panther.
