Going for a Gorman stoppage probably late or mid rounds.
Dubois KO round 6
Think Dubois but possibly points.
Just hope this is as good in the ring as it is on paper. A few of these class match ups have stunk the gaff out in the last 12 months or so.
Jennings at 100/30 looks appealing enough
Dubois inside the distance. Gorman is skilled, but Dubois has the speed and power.
Splinters all the way. I can’t call this one and it’s fascinating. I really hope it lives up to the hype
Anybody bought tickets on the day before? Thinking of going but I'm busy till atleast 8pm so might not get away in time.
Be good to see Williams. His opponent only has a measly 11% KO ratio though but has went the distance with Lemieux and Murray before (albeit losing nearly every round).
Interesting to see him fighting for WBC silver title to jump him up the rankings there.
WBC route has got Canelo, Charlo, Derevyachenko, Golovkin and Jacobs.
WBO only has Golovkin and Andrade.
Great fight and I think Gorman wins on points
Poundland AJ vs Poundland Fury
Very even fight because Dubois carries power and wouldn’t say Gorman is massively evasive from what I’ve seen. Though I think Gorman is a level above Dubois and can do enough to keep him off and win by UD. If Dubois wins it’ll be a come from behind KO.
It's a tough call and the only reason I'm picking Gorman is that I always edge the solid boxer over the solid puncher/KO's only kind of guy
Dubois got a little wild in his last outing, we've never seen that from Gorman, who looks very controlled in everything he does, I wonder how he'd react to getting caught with a powerful shot?
I feel that Gorman will know Dubois’s full shot repertoire, even when he’s about to throw them. I could be wrong but I just think Dubois has been somewhat of an obsession for Gorman. For him, everything has been building to this point, whereas for Dubois, Gorman is just another stepping stone.
Dubois’s mindset is arguably more healthy but I think in this case, Gorman will be be able to shut his eyes and see Dubois fight much like a Formula One drover closes his eyes and can see every inch of a racing track.
My point is, I see Gorman nullifying Dubois’s speed and power, and outboxing him. Whether he stops him depends on Dubois’s stamina and chin.
The Lartey fight was great for Dubois. It showed vulnerabilities but he learned a lot more in that fight than all his others put together. I think if he goes wild like that against Gorman he will find himself on the floor. The big question is can Gorman take those shots from Dubois.
If Gorman has a decent chin big Dubois is in a world of trouble.
