I'm starting to wonder, too. I was expecting him to take a soft touch comeback fight on Showtime, so either he'll be taking a soft touch on Fox,...
You know no such thing. He was throwing bone crunching shots and had Cotto all kinds of busted up. How do you go from stopping prime Cotto plus...
He was getting older, but it is suspicious that he suddenly lost his power. He couldn't even get rid of the journeymen he fought afterwards in...
You are responding to posts made two years ago. Has he talked about this recently?
You didn't even watch the fight. How do you have an opinion?
He wasn't robbed. Smith won some very clear rounds and others were close. Plus round 11. ...
I disagree with this decision, but the squealing that's going to happen on here will be misplaced. Vlasov was seconds away from a KD or even a KO...
If Smith wins it will not be a robbery; bad decision, but not a robbery. I think anything from 6-6 to 8-4 Vlasov is good. Maybe you could stretch...
I gave Smith the final two rounds, so for me it's 7-5 Vlasov.
It was a shot to the back of the head, but that's not Vlasov's problem.
High drama in the 12th. Vlasov 7-4, Smith needs a KO and he might get it.
Should be a KD!
Vlasov out on his feet.
Vlasov now seeing all of Smith's fatigued punches. Smith flailing at this point. Looks bad for him.
Vlasov is using his shoulders brilliantly to bump Smith off balance. Smith can't fight going backward and is tiring himself in the attempt....
Unbelievably to me, Vlasov came back and won the 8th. Tough mother ****er. 5-3 Vlasov.
Big Smith round. Not only did he land some big shots and hurt Vlasov, Vlasov's offense appears to be losing steam.
Vlasov slowing down a little. Smith still dangerous. 4-2 Vlasov.
Vlasov reestablishes control in round 5. I have it 4-1 Vlasov.
Smith gets his first round on my card. 3-1 Vlasov.
Vlasov 3-0. Smith taking a lot of shots.
Vlasov 2-0. He has taken Smith's occasional shots really well. Smith already looking a bit battered. Getting caught cleanly way too often.
****, that was a shot. KO of the year contender for sure.
I would love this fight. Agreed with most others that prime Wilder wins, but we don't know what he has left.
Metcalf gives me a Ruslan Provodnikov vibe. Not as talented but similar style and determination. Like Ruslan, I suspect he will not have a long...
It's not even a matter of whether he deserves a shot. He needs a fight against someone given the length of his inactivity.
DAZN also may have options on certain things and not want to be involved in freak shows.
