Default Johnny Tapia v Khaosai Galaxy

Great 115 match-up. Johnny was a hell of a boxer but loved to mix it up. Would this be his fatal step in this match? What about Tapia's record against southpaws? Could Galaxy track him down if Johnny got on his bicycle?

Thoughts, please.

Hmmm. I think that Tapias chin and workrate, when focused would slow him to take this but I'm an unabashed fanboy. I remember Tapia beating some southpaws but none too memorable. As hard as Khaosai hit he was rather basic- destruct and destroy a poet might have said-and I think Tapia was both elusive enough and tough enough to avoid being worn down.

I am a fan of galaxy i love the way he just keeps stalking his prey I call him the Michael Myers ( Halloween )of the boxing world . Although a fan the nickname also reveals galaxy's weakness he is for me a fighter who likes to fight at one pace . Saying that tapia could box beautifully and would in all probability build a big lead through the early and middle rounds but I see tapia building that lead and perhaps getting to confident getting hurt in a flat footed exchange he allows himself to initiate . After this tapia's pride may lead him to defeat
