i thought sylvester was still average and that askainen was the ring general.

was not expecting askainen to fall apart from an innocuos shot from a non puncher and even worse have no recuperation powers at all.

once askainen was hurt his legs/equilibrium turned to jelly and he was complely out of it.

sylvester was hurt every time when tagged clean and abraham will brutalise him and win by ko , while sturm also will ko sylvester if he does ever throw a right behind his jab.

as you might guess not impressed with sylvester at world class level , but at european level he did well enough and restored some confidence in himself.

but he is to chinny to go in v top fighters.

askainen falling apart so quickly was a shock as all fight it looked like he could have walked through sylvester`s shots.

temple shots do funny things to so many fighters.

I still think that if one of the fighters in Zwickau last saturday wins a world title, it will be Asikainen. Sylvester just ain´t that good. He had a referee who loved him enough to prevent him from going down and to allow him to punch Asikainen in the neck. And who somehow forgot to count when Asikainen went down. Surely SS fought wisely, but he had many things going to his favor. World Champions are more experienced and have serious game plans, which means they will have no problem in diminishing Sylvester and going through his guard. Asikainen has a helluva potential, if he can learn to listen his coach and keep his hands up.

The matter of fact is that both are not that good and that's why they are on an equal level. Sylvester is chinny but Asikainen even more. Askainen has a better punch but Sylvester is a bit more skilled, so it levels out and we have a competative fight. Obviously there were fighters on the card with a lot more potential than both of these guys. But Sturm is very beatable and he is also a chinny non puncher whose only "weapon" is his jab so if one of the guys gets a shot at him, he would have a decent chance.
