Valdez was the better man.
I wouldn't be surprised if it played a part, but Valdez's performance first, and the then weight cut have to be the major reasons here.
The weight cut. Berchelt was never a good puncher and his power was overrated imo. He replied on volume. But his shots had almost nothing on them from the opening bell.
Since anecdotal evidence is what matters here, I know a 70 year old who got Covid and still going healthy as he was before it.
Smaller faster beats bigger and slower, ask Canelo, ohh wait they have the same trainer...
Yeah i agree Valdez was outstanding and im glad i picked him,i guess i could have worded it better so people dont get hung up on that part of it but he was just the best recent example of a higher profile boxer who has come back after having tested positive for covid.
In the UFC we have seen a couple of fighters come back with mixed success as well as top fighters like Chimaev who we still have no idea when will be able to return due to still not being back to health after testing positive months ago
Thats all proof i needed to here can we gets the mods to close up the thread cheers
Bechelt not a good puncher with overrated power you say mmmkay
As other have said , the massive weight cut and gain. Maybe it mad him slower than usual. He was so damn slow. He wasn't the fastest guy out there but he was extra slow in that fight.
He looked in incredible shape.
If there was anything wrong, its that the weight cuts may have caught up with him.
I saw an interview with Jono Carroll recently who sparred with Berchelt in the past and said the guy looks like a middleweight walking around.
Ha! to have "lingering COVID effects" you have to have been really , really sick.
Berchelt never had any symptoms....a slight sniffle I might have remembered reading?
He was perfectly fine...Eddy Reynoso's famous Mexican beef will turn any normal man into a rag doll.
Again i have no sympathy for those who cut weight like Berchelt and im not making any excuses as i picked Valdez who proved to clearly the better fighter of the 2.
I also have no idea how badly covid affected him when he had it and am just wondering if the drastic weight cut and gain that hadnt been a problem previously,could have been effected due to having covid and possibly be an issue for him and other fighters whove had it moving forward
Huh yeah sure if he was one of many who had covid without getting sick it wouldnt have any lingering effects at all but as i said had no idea how bad he had it and i also said it wasnt why he lost
You can be assured that the liberals at ESPN would have reminded us between every round and during the whole fight build up of Berchelts "crusade surviving the bubonic plague" if he had actually been sick.
In fact, there isn't one documented case of any elite athlete in professional sports who truly had a serious battle against the china flu.
Not one was hospitalized or reported bed ridden for days or weeks. Berchelt certainly never ever insinuated actually being sick let alone in a battle.
No need to make up things if you have no idea what you are talking about dude.
Theres a lounge for people to spew similar comical political views as yours.
