Default Grzegorz Proksa vs Sebastian Sylvester - EBU!

Proksa, a talented southpaw Polish prospect is finally getting the big fight he needs to step into fame. He is 25-0 with 18 KOs.

He takes on Sebastian Sylvester, 34-4 16 KOs in Germany Oct 1st!

What you guys think of this fight? I am excited for Proksa to finally step up for the big fights and show off his talent. The kid could make some noise in the division. Fun fact as well: all of his big wins are on the road, nothing seems to faze him!

Super stoked!

I think Sylvester will swing the decision mainly because it's on in Germany.

Der Vaterland didn't help him when Geale dropped by for a visit.

I guess the question becomes: is Proksa as good as Geale? He has certainly picked up more international seasoning than Geale had before making his own trek to Neubrandenberg.

Mark my words!!!

Proksa is going to school Sylvester so bad he wont have any more fighting spirit left in him when he's done.

Always a concern when a Pole fights in Germany but i am confident that if it goes to the cards Proksa will have a substantial lead.

That's true but I just can't see Proksa being capable of dominating Sylvester in the way that Geale did.

I personally don't think he is as good as Geale. Geale has a very good work rate, much higher than Proksa. That alone gets rounds in the bag for Geale, even if he is somewhat lacking in the defense department. I just think Proska will let too many rounds slip through his fingers to get the decision and I can't see him KO'ing Sylvester. Proska doesn't have the killer instinct. When he fought in Spain recently, I felt he should have ended it a lot earlier.

Proksa may have more experience of fighting on the road but the guys he has been fighting are far away from the level Sylvester. Geale beat the guy who beat (imo) Sylvester in Roman Karmazin. Then again, you never really know if a guy is up for the job until you see him step up. I thought Macklin would be soundly beat by Sturm, so who knows what will happen.

I dont think Proksa will find it any easier than Geale.

I would like to see him win though, and I think he will win. Hes a good fighter, and im a fan of his. I remember he fought in my hometown before

I also see Proksas talent. I hope he has a great camp and comes 100% for this. I believe he can end it before round 12.

Although a decision is not out of the equation. Skill level wise I think he has the much better tools, just comes down to utilizing them properly now.

In which way? To be honest after that fight i was pretty sure that sylvester would get the decision as it had been an extremely close fight. Could go either way, Geale wasnt dominant in there.

Proksa has a great chance in this. I think he can force the stoppage. He has crazy digs to the body.

I think Proksa is MUCH better than Geale. I'm confident Sylvester will be outclassed.

Sylvester is better than people are giving him credir for. He is a solid fighter.

Proksa breaks the spirit off all simple 1-2 fighters.

There will be a difference in class here.
