    The Chosen one vs the Demolisher. Too soon for Berlanga?

    Lemieux knocks Berlanga's head off. I'm not even sure Berlanga would be ready for Rosado, let alone the guy that put a beating on him.

    Lemieux isnt very active as of late, but he hits like a Mule. If Cosares gave Berlanga that type of trouble, its possible he beats Berlanga if he lets his hands go. Might be the showcase type of fight Berlanga needs to redeem himself tho.

    Lemieux is one heavy handed mfer. He would turn that cherrypicking weight bullies legs into jelly if he landed

    Lemieux is the more skilled Brawler.

    Let’s do it. Lemieux isn’t getting any younger. He needs some good fights.

    Cherrypicking is rife in boxing for most. Some do it a lot more than others..some do it supposedly subtle (and it's not subtle if you just take a look) and essentially con the fans without them realising it by never fighting (or rarely) true fair let alone 50 - 50 match ups (I agree there should be some level of career management obviously but it has almost always been excessive in boxing) Why turn a blind eye to this? I'm not gonna be fooled by obvious false/misleading marketing/promotion (that's what it is) , you can go ahead though. Cherrypicking is what I hate about boxing buts it's also the deluded fangirls who justify the cherrypicking. It's truly baffling, I don't know why people think it's smart being conned. I kinda feel sorry for the people who actually believe the shite their fed about fighters.. They're like naive sheep being manipulated

    Hes a prospect, maybe even a hypejob as some on here have hyped him to the moon, but hes still taking his time and climbing the ranks. He had his first stiff test, this weekend and faced adversity for the first time, but this is the road prospects take to get to a world title. Slow and steady, wins the race. I disagree that hes a cherrypicker.

    Lemieux would crease him if they fought now. Maybe Edgar can get better

    I like the matchup but doubt it happens at least not in the near future. Arum is not going to step him up anytime soon after last weekend. He is probably a good four or five fights from a banger like Lemieux. He needs more quality rounds.

    david has to be mid 30's by now no? And he is a natural 154. It would be a banger for sure
