Proksa is slick and can hit up a mean combo. This will be sylvester's biggest problem.

Several hand surgeries and opponents literally pulling out of fights while in the lockerroom.

okay okay, so you guys like proksa because of his talent. but viewing this as an easy win is total bullshit.

sylvester is legit world level. he has several good names in his record and even in his loss to geale he proved that he is a very capable fighter!

and proksa?? he has beaten only nobodies!

sure, he is a far more flashy fighter with his "american " style of keeping his lead hand very low and throwing quick combos. and he is a southpaw.

but for proksas flash, sylvester is all substance.

a very awkward guy with his very tight guard and excellent left jab.

im a boxer myself and i know how frustrating it is to fight these guys that keep their elbows in and their gloves in front of their face.
they look kind of one paced and easy to figure out. but in reality i find them to be the most awkward of fighters.

and if they know how to keep their punches short and are capable counterpunchers you are gonna have a real difficult time.

you are gonna have a real clash of styles. the flashier proksa will do more punching, sylvester will be more acurate and probably land the cleaner shots.

and dont forget: this fight is in germany where the crowd will go nuts every time sylvester makes contact!!!
plus the fact that germans usually have an advantage going in as far as the scorecards are concearned.

oh, and last but not least: sylvester has a pretty decent punch!! he just doesnt have all that many knockouts cause he is a safety first guy.
but if he nails you flush with that right hand.............well just ask castillejo! he is no joke.

so yes, proksa can win. and he may very well win.

but if anybody who thinks this will be easy is dreaming or doesnt know boxing.

I don't think it will be easy at all. That's why I can't wait!

Proksa will win unless there is some serious homecooking for Sylvester going on.

I'm excited about this fight. Hope it's live and the winner gets a crack at Geale or takes on a USA based middleweight. Maybe Macklin can fight the winner?

Time to eat my humble pie. I underestimated Proksa. He looked terrific in there and I can't wait to see him out again. He really stepped up to the plate. Good call guys, I got this one wrong.
