Good fight. Havenīt seen enough of Godfrey to comment on the outcome though. Huck vertainly is a busy belt-holder.

Huck by decision. He'll win wide on the cards but most observers will think it's a close fight. Godfrey isn't busy enough to take full advantage of Huck's deficiencies.

Hats off to Huck.

War Too Smooth! NE, represent!

Yeah, in seriousness though, he probably loses a decision. Huck for all his flaws is still a level above Kraj.

i'll say Huck TKO, I'm going out on a limb here but the fact Godfrey was offered Hide 3 or 4 times who has looked piss for a while now and turned it down each time makes me think his camp aren't confident in his chin.

As you say, though - Hide's stock has been on a downward curve (especially steep since the PF scandal), so it could just be that his risk/reward ratio didn't make sense, former champ or no.

It was WBC final eliminator though This was before the fight with the Native American Godfrey fought. Personally I think he could beat Hide, Hide struggles with almost anyone i seen him in with in the last 2 years(and they were all piss). They might have another reason but i'm not so sure. Godfrey vs Huck should be good while it lasts anyway

BORKED

Interesting comments from Godfrey. He talks about whether he can get a fair decision against Huck in the first minute.

This is less than 24 hours away!

It's about 21 and a half hours away...right? Does anybody know exactly what time it's supposed to be?

I would guess it will start around 5 p.m. EST! You are in Boston, right?

Regarding the fight I feel Huck will not come close to hurting Godfrey but he will be much more active and win by a few points. While Godfrey will have his moments countering and even have success when he takes the lead. Although this will not happen often.

Then most of the posters on the general forum will bitch and complain accusing the "German judges" of screwing over Godfrey. Although none of the judges or the ref will be German citizens.

Yes. The lady wants to go to an ice cream festival in Somerville (a city about 10 miles away) that lasts from 2-4pm. I just might make it back in time!

My official pick was Huck UD as well. It would be awesome if Godfrey somehow pulled off the upset though!

Godfrey has done nothing to indicate he can step this level. His best wins are over Cora and Nwodo, fringe contenders. Simms, a good boxer, but really a journeyman, drew him. Huck for his flaws has the aggression and physical strength to really give Godfrey trouble. Huck's style is all wrong for the boxing Godfrey. Huck should stop him.
