Default Why Mendoza not Muriqi ?

Why Mendoza not Muriqi ?
We are talking about next opponent of WBO world champion Zsolt Erdei who has negociations oppurtunity and many reasens to fight with Elvir Muriqi to protect his title in 24-th November, but he was not so brave to fight with Muriqi and than he decide to fight with someone who was not sucessfull in light heavyweight division and dont have capacity as fighter like Elvir Muriqi.

Mendoza record in his profesional career have 36 wins and 7 loses. In boxing records ranklist Mendoza is 29 and Muriqi is 17. Muriqi in his last fight with Antonio Tarver wins many fans around the world and we belive that fight betwen Erdei - Muriqi will bring more than 20.000 fans in their match and will be spectacle for boxing fans.

Muriqi in fight against Tarver fight 12 rounds with high level and he was attacking him all time. One headbut from Tarver in round four lost him conception to win clear fight and the judges helped Tarver to win this fight but Muriqi in reality dident lost nothing he won the fans all around the world. Muriqi show in this fight to all the world that his big fighter and he is ready to fight everybody in the light heavyweight division.

Muriqi also in the 2002 bring big surprise to american boxing in the fight with Sam Ahmad who gets four knock-downs from Ahmad in two rounds and he still fighting him and wins in round three with tecnicall knock out. This fight was the best fight of year 2002 from american media.
Zsolt Erdei record is 27-0 and he is still undeafeded and he protect WBO world champion eight time but his fights was not attractive for the fans. Also fight with Mendoza its not going to be so interested from the boxing fans only one number in his fighting.

The fight with Muriqi in the Germany will be more expacted from the people in all over the world, especilly in Germany where we can say now is MEKA of boxing. In this event with Mendoza its not going to bring more than 5.000 fans in the Dresden city and will miss boxing atmosphere. To remember some fights of Luan Krasniqi in the Germany where the german and albanian fans bring a spectacular events ad think about fight betwen Erdei - Muriqi who much will be interesting.

Muriqi declare many times in international media that he is ready to fight any time any where with all champs or contenders of this divisions and he is world top 20 and he would like to fight for world titles as WBC, WBA, IBF, and WBO.

Albanianboxing.com recive many emails and letters from fans including albanians and wants to rewiev this event from Universum Box Promotion and from Erdei himself but also from international media.

1. Muriqi isn't better than Mendoza.
2. Muriqi was knocked out by Danny Santiago.
3. Tarver won a clear decison against Muriqi. The judge who scored the fight in favour of Muriqi should go to an eye specialist.
4. Tarver is shot, Erdei is in his prime: Erdei would destroy Muriqi.

Muriqi is 100% better fighter than Mendoza, and Erdei afraid to calsh him, but we will see fight betwen Erdei - Muriqi next year .

No way that Muriqi was knocked out by Santiago , its true that Muriqi was numbered by refere and Muriqi was ready to continue but refere stoped the fight. Muriqi calls many time for rematch Santiago and he dident accept never beause Muriqi will kick his ass. Lets see how many round Santiago will stay Tarver in the 1 December.

About fight Muriqi - Tarver . Its not true that Tarver wins match, maybe you are blind but the fight can be draw or Muriqi wins, but Tarver credibility gives addvantage and gives him wins. Any way Muriqi dident let him to win clearly and was destroyed his dream to fight once again for title with Dawson .

Lets see in the early new year fight betwen Erdei - Muriqi and we will give final prediction. Erdei is far from best light heavyweight champions right now, he dient protect never his title with any good boxer like Muriqi.

I agree that Muriqi is a much better opponent than Mendoza, but to say Erdei is the one who didnīt want to face him isnīt right. Erdei is a very good fighter, better than the overrated and shot Tarver (whoīs legacy is only built of the wins over a shot and at 175 lbs also overrated RJJ), itīs his managment who you can blame for that, but IMO Erdei would outpoint Muriqi pretty comfortably...

One true story about Erdei - Muriqi. Firat Arslan is in preapare for his match in the ski center in the Austria, and calls Muriqi to sparring with Firat Arslan but Muriqi refused because he knows that they want to now how much hard is Muriqi and he was do right think. Muriqi will get shot next year because Kohl is interesting to have him in his team if he wins Erdei. It will be same like he did with Castillejo.

while i would have preferred muriqui to mendoza, i dont think that either has a chance.

neither is in erdeis class. a win over muriqui or mendoza will not further his carrer.

erdei needs to step up and fight a top contender cause his credability is taking a nosedive.

Agreed, but Muriqiīs performance against Tarver was pretty good, and letīs not forget, Erdei is also getting older and older, I would expect a hard fight (and a win for Erdei, but not as easy as some of you think)...

Sad for a guy who has such a talent but Erdei seems a bit out of the game now. Easy defenses with 0 suspense for the $$$ : he is a paper champ. He had the opportunity to initiate the unification and he chose the easy road. He has kept his title OK but he has wasted much time, he is not so young and the number 1 in this divison is now Dawson imo.

Do you really think that Muriqi is a risk for Erdei? Fact is, there are really few fighters in the division that could possibly be risky for him. The problem is, he doesn't fight those guys.

Why on earth should Erdei fight Muriqui? Danny Santiago stopped your Albanian compatriot in round 4 of their encounter.Zsolt Erdei gave Santiago a lesson in boxing.
IMO Zsolt shouldnt fight neither Muriqui nor Mendoza.Both aforementioned names deserve a shot at the Hungarian's title.

i agree that dawson is most probably the hardest to beat in the division at present but his first 2 defenses were against ruiz , complete joke of a journeyman who had boxed a round i think in 3 years and mendoza.

he is not exactly stepping up to the plate either albeit tarver does not want to know him.

I very much hope that you are wrong,artani!

Yesterday's fight against the stiff and one-dimensional Mendoza was one of the weakest performances of the Hungarian I have seen so far.
Mendoza seemed to be tailor made for Zsolt.Nevertheless that predictable and slow Panamanian was able to hurt Zsolt in round 4. Erdei took far too many punches against that limited puncher who seemed to have even less skills than Ukranian heavy weight Virchis.
Erdei fought as if he had been under the influence of sleeping pills moving in slow motion against a tailor made foe.
Muriqui? Neither he nor Mendoza deserve a shot at a world title.
There are much better challengers out there.
AFter yesterday's performance against Mendoza I am not really sure anymore that Erdei will win his third encounter with Garay.
