Default Proksa´s next likely opponent will be Zbik

Ring ranked # 6 Sebastian Zbik (one loss against Chavez Jr.) is currently the mando challenger for the EBU title, putting him and Proksa on a collision course. How do you see this fight playing out?

zbik has no defense but is a pretty tough nut to crack. Proksa should win by mid/late KO

I'd like to see this. I'd favour Proksa, who looked very impressive at the weekend.

Zbik fought on pretty-much even terms with Chavez but Proksa looks as though he could make some noise at 160.

There aren't a lot of names at Middleweight but there are a lot of decent fighters

I think Proksa may try to go the German route, which is a relatively lucrative market. Getting a trifecta against Sylvester, Zbik and Sturm may give him a title shot against Sergio.

Fighting Zbik and Sturm next would be ideal. He'd make some good money and beating Sturm would make enough noise that he could get a shot at Martinez. With no marquee names at 160, a title and a watch-able style could be enough.

Whether Sturm actually gets around to fighting Proksa or Golovkin is another matter though. Maybe Golovkin-N'kijam and Proksa-Pirog is more realistic.

I'd like to see it, I think Proksa takes it, I haven't seen much of him, but I want to see more.

Everyone would love to see those gems. Winners face one another for a shot at Martinez. Or just make a Super Six.

LOL that would be awesome. He'd earn the nickname 'The Kraut Killer'.

Its already Super G..............as in Super Germankiller.

But let´s not get too far ahead of ourselves. Proksa will need to convincingly overcome intermediate hurdles like Zbik and Sturm to be considered a serious threat to Martinez.


However, I salivate at the thought of Martinez - Proksa. Speed vs Speed, Slick vs Slick, Power vs Power, Swagger vs Swagger. They are very much alike, although one is obviously a lot more accomplished and better known.

Good fight as long as it gives Proksa further international exposure.

It will. But it will still keep him away from HBO/Showtime though. This kind of exposure is what he needs to pressure for a fight with Martinez. But I suppose that can be accomplished down the road if he overcomes the easier challenges.

I think Proksa handles Zbik with ease. This kid is crazy good and its because of his confidence and style. I think his defense will only improve and cause problems for every fighter because his style is something you can't really watch and analyze!

There's not many huge names in the MW division but there's plenty of entertaining fights to be made, i really enjoy watching Proksa and Pirog especially.

Zbik is No1 in WBA and No2 in WBC. This fight could give Proksa a big step up in the rankings.
GO PROKSA!!!
