Default Winner of Miranda vs Jeff Lacy @ 168lbs

I think coming off their losses in fights they were supposed to win, it would be interesting to see these two power punchers go toe-to-toe. Who will win. My pick is Jeff lacy.

I dunno why everybody is hating on Miranda thinking he sucks. The only lost he got was from two really good fighters. When Miranda beat Allen Green everybody was talking about him being the next great middleweight. Miranda is still good and he'll beat Lacy. Miranda is a raw fighter and he'll will get better the more time he gets to train.

I like Miranda. He's quicker, tougher and takes a better shot. And I think Lacy is now a broken fighter.

You think Miranda could have taken the punishment that Lacy did from Calzaghe?
Calzaghe would have been life and death with Miranda. It wouldn't have gone down like that if Mirnada fought Calzaghe. And yes, he could of absorbed it, it just wouldn't have happened.

Unless Lacy screws up his arm again, Lacy wins this one. He's just much more skillful than Miranda. Also, Lacy has a solid enough chin to take away Miranda's puncher's chance.

Lacy was hurt very badly in his last fight with Tsypco. He didn't look right. Mirnda has fought some real hitters and only Pavlik took him down.

BTW Lacy fought the harder competition, not miranda.

Miranda was stunned by an old Eastman, got backed up by Abraham, and got knocked down by Green and absolutely destroyed by Pavlik so I dont see where his superior toughness comes from. I can't imagine Allen Green and PAvlik doing that to LAcy..

They are pretty much equal in terms of toughness.
I can imagine Green and Pavlik doing that to Lacy. And I think Eastman, Green and Pavlik are better than anything Lacy has seen save Calzaghe. Lacy's best win was over Syd Vanderpool.

I think they are both broken fighters given their physic and media hype, and now losses to good fighters, but I still think Lacy has the edge. Better trainer, better camp. He was dominated by calzaghe but has never been knocked out. He can absorb way more punishment than Miranda.

Miranda got crap for defense. He was weight drained against Kelly and threw crap punches too. At 168 he should feel more comfortable. Lacy and Miranda both have crap defense. I would say Lacy would win... but he did have a severe career injury. So I am edging miranda.

abraham was a good miranda opponent too (some would even argue miranda won that fight).
