Dubois is going to walk through Gorman.
I believe it won't go past eight
dubious will catch him
Frank would love a draw - What's that about 25/1?
Frank goes PPV on the rematch.
True, thing is though he has to land clean on Gorman and i’m not sure he will.
It’s great because if Dubois KOs him in 4 would you be surprised? I wouldn’t. If Gorman UD’s him comfortably I wouldn’t be surprised.
Frank Would love that so he could save the 0s and would obviously build things up more for a bigger fight later down the line, couldn’t be ruled out.
If Gorman kos dubois on top of Ruiz ko of joshua it will be the end of “bodybuilding boxers“ for a while eh?
To me, it doesn’t make much sense having big muscle definition as a heavyweight. A fleshier heavyweight has far better fluidity & movement imo. Having the cardio to do the 12 rounds is far more important and therefore concentrating more on boxing skills should take priority over aesthetics.
I see were your coming from, but Dubois doesn’t appear too overly muscled for his frame from what I can see. He also seemed to do the distance without blowing against Johnson.
Ive invested minimal time watching these guys this week and to my casual eye first impressions Dubois should blow this kid away.
At this stage going to go with the guy with the bigger punch.
Gorman looks skilled and normally id be backing him to win but something and I cant put my finger on what thinks that Dubois will take this he had a sublte increase in quality of opponent in in his last couple of fights and has some good physical advantages as well. If he can use the jab well at keep Gorman at range I can see him landing some big shots and ending things early.
That said if Gorman can do a Ruiz and to a lesser extent a Larty and punch with DD or find some nice counters it will get interesting quickly
Of course better still is to be neither overly fat or overly muscular. As in both cases the boxer has lots of excess,( useless in s boxing sense,), weight. Ideally something like Ali or Holmes is probably best. Frazier was a bit chubby. And Norton was muscular. They had 15 round engines. Great stamina. Frazier was probably at the upper limit of 'chubbyness" and Norton was probably at the upper limit of 'muscularity". Anybody chubbier that Frazier or more muscular than Norton probably will never achieve a long sustained reign as heavyweight champion with great performances and numerous defences of the title in my opinion. So far no heavyweight boxer has proven me wrong on this issue.
True mate. The thing with the Johnson performance was that he never had to move beyond pedestrian pace. It was a stroll for him. Can he fight at a higher tempo and pace for 3 mins a round, because Gorman definitely can. Personally, I think he looks an absolute tank, his shoulders are huge.
Will be a fascinating fight. I believe Gorman will win but I genuinely like both lads.
I'll be rooting for Daniel Dubrey but have a bad feeling about this one, Gorman's speed and skill could pose a serious problem if he managed not to get caught.
I can’t see either fight going the distance.
Joyce via late stoppage but the other fight I can’t pick a winner, leaning slightly towards Dubois
