Default Larsen needs a knockout

Outpointing journeymen over the distance doesn't do much good for a fighter who sees himself as puncher.
Who should Larsen fight next?
I'd say he should fight someone with a sore chin. Then have a fight scheduled shortly afterwards not to waste time. I think he the poor boy needs a knockout.

Default Re: Larsen needs a knockout

Larsen has all the tools but when he is fighting I often get the feeling he is holding back. I think he's afraid of getting hit and therefore he is not willing to go for the KO.. It was the same when he faced Ottke. He was in control of the fight, but he just didn't put the right pressure and that made Ottke's poor punching look good.

Larsen sees himself as a counterpuncher, and he is following that strategy in his new surroundings. A EBU title fight with Sanavia would be perfect. Sanavia is highly ranked by the world alphabet soup and hold a good title. He is a weak champion and Larsen would be a huge favorite.

Default Re: Larsen needs a knockout

Larsen might see himself as a counterpuncher stylewise, but I'll bet he sees himself as a counterpuncher with a punch. It was btw interesting to see how he was all up for saying hello to the argentian after the rounds he got caught in - while he was playing it cool when he himself had the upper hand.
Larsen has been used to stopping opponents and he'll expect his punch to make a difference when fighting weaker opposition. It has not done that yet in his comeback. He needs a knockout, no question.
As far as I know the argentian fought Braehmer one month before Larsen. That makes him even more of journeyman doesn't it?
I'd like to see Larsen against any well prepared fighter who fancies his own chances.

i think mads larsen will be back on track very soon.
I think he allways have had great boxing skills,and he´s an okay puncher.
but mentally i think he´s not that strong.
but its good to have him back again,and i think he will be in top 5 in smw,after 5 more fights!!

They should make Larsen-Markussen in Germany. That fight would generate a decent danish audience.
But I don't think Markussen will fight again... and maybe Mads would run all night to earn a decision, Markussen being helplessly sluggish after two rounds.

He should probably fight Thysse next.
Thysse seems to always be on someones resurrection express these days.

It'll be interesting to see how Larsen progresses, though I think it's unlikely he'll climb into the top 5 at 168.

Did you read my post, Blackburn twat. Larsen needed rounds in the beginning. Now he needs a knockout to gain confidence in his punch. And a new fight scheduled shortly after.

I quite agree with you,unitas!

Velasquez a journeyman? Hm! He was a former world champ,and is still above the legions of the so-called journeymen in terms of skills and the ability to give hell to most top fighters of his weight division.
Braehmer barely managed to win a point decision against that "journeyman".
Larsen did an excellent job by outpointing and dominating such a tough opponent the way he did.Props to Larsen!He for sure didnt need to knock the tough Argie out.

Larsens defensive boxing is already at a high level. He needs something in the offensive, but what he needs is more rounds against a tough opponent. An easy KO is not worth much more than sparring. Larsen needs to be able to build combinations against tough opposition. So put him in with a guy the level higher than Velazco.

Default Re: Larsen needs a knockout

An argentinian fighting twice the same month in Europe - both times as the matchmakers intended loser. That's the very definition of a journeyman. Former champ - in another division, without winning the title - or not.
Everybody knows you're not supposed to knock down sparring partners. I've seen it happen several times often with a lot of tension if not bad feelings afterwards.
Larsen needs confidence in his punching power in a real fight, with fight gloves. Give him that. Then move on quickly.

BTW - journeyman is not the same as opponent or as tomato can. I don't think it's degrading to be called a journeyman. It's close to gate keeper.

So Larsen was a journeyman when he fought Häussler?

The term journeyman is used as something negative. It is not. It just describes where a fighter is fighting. You have very good fighters fighting as journeymen. Even world champions have in reality been journeymen defending their titles.
