Default IBF orders Lorezno-Zuniga for #1 spot

...The winner will be Abrahams mandatory.


* IMO Zuniga is a dark horse in the middleweight division, his got endless stamina and an Iron chin. He will give Abraham a tough fight, more so than Lorenzo. This will be a good test for AA.

zuniga has only average skill and average power, and its only the middleweights are in such bad shape depth wise he is in the running.

he is a very good trialhorse, never a world champ.

lorenzo has more padding than my bed.

Ya, skill wise and power wise Zuniga is average, his main strengths are his volume punching and chin. In the Oganov fight he took alot of heavy shots and just kept coming. With Abrahams low work rate that could be a problem. Lorenzo im not too worried about when it comes to challenging Abraham. His an alrigh puncher but seems to have leaky defense. Plus he hasent fought enough top guys to have that top level experience, like you said his record his heavily padded. Non the less he is an olympian so he does have some credentials.

i like zuniga, very definition of have gloves will travel.

will always goive it a go and give his best and will not settle just for a payday, but its a shame the middleweight division is down to a fighter like himself having a eliminator for a title.

abraham is either severly weight drained or has been watching darius michaelzweski tapes and adpoted his do not throw a punch in the first 4 rounds stratergy.

he sleepwalked through el****.

yet v ikeke he went out right from the opening bell letting his hands go.

i think that zuniga might be to tough for the padded lorenzo, but with all undefeated fighters you cannot truely judge them until they have been in deep.

in the middleweight division at the moment sadly zuniga qualifies with being in deep.

I havent's seen Lorenzo fight yet and I am looking forward to see what he is all about. Zuniga is a tough fighter and a good test.

That's a great fight. I thought that Abraham's final choice will be one of the two on the Pavlik-Duddy undercard but as they ordered the eliminator it seems that another opponent will step in against Arthur.

Zuniga has a ton of heart and so so skills but he also has above average power. Probably hits harder than Miranda and we know how Miranda beat up AA.

No, Lorenzo replaced Oral to fight Zuniga.

Btw, as it looks like, Zuniga vs. Lorenzo will probably being added to the under card of Abraham's next voluntary defence in March...

No way Zuniga hits harder than Miranda,his more of a volume puncher.

I guess we need to get Pavlik's view on it since he fought both.

Soliman and Zuniga would help Abraham get ready for Pavlik because like Kelly there very busy fighters.
