This anxiety is spoiling my anticipation of the fight.



Its a big worry, that rush inbetween rounds to piss the beer out could mean we miss the pivotal moment

Only until he's exposed fully. We've already seen the Bradley embarrasment which was quite literally the most cringeworthy moment i've seen in boxing since a series of Bernard Hopkins incidents

That was bad. As bad as Nate Campebell's "I can't see, man" to his corner. A total quit job.


That said, Alexander actually has footwork and handspeed. Lacy had neither. Devon actually has a little defense. Lacy had none. Lacy simply has the edge in power. He did take the Joe Cal ass whipping without quitting, though.

Yeah, fair comment. Lacy deserves huge credit for not being a quitter, he took some big beatings after Joe as well, Jones smashed him to smitherines.

Judah Garcia - Boring
Brook Alexander - Boring
Matthysse Dallas - Will end in KO, but abit of a mismatch = Not really worth watching

Jan/Feb ain't great...

This is gonna be an interesting match because Brooks is gonna make him fight or knock him out if he don't stepup. Here's the rub, if he steps up, my money is on him because he has more boxing knowledge than Brooks. Kell just might awaken a sleeping giant.

Brook is a good fighter but Devon has been in the ring with a lot better fighters so I don't see Brook troubling Devon at all. I'm not a big fan of Devon but I expect him to outbox Brook to a UD.

Alexander is better, faced better opposition, more athletic, fundamentally sound, not sure where Brook gains an advantage in this fight.

I dont question Brooks heart, I concede that to you. That said, Alexander has been taken to deep ****ing water with Kotelnik and Mathyse, regardless who you favor in terms of winning, he showed lots of heart.
