Has there ever been a fight where you felt worried for one fighter's health before it even started?

    I honestly think that the fight between Chisora and Szpilka should not happen. It's a mismatch. I don't only think Szpilka can retire afterwards, I think that it may have lifelong consequences or even worse. Chisora is too big, too strong and too aggressive. Szpilka is not even a real HW. If he does not get knocked out within two rounds, I worry about his health.

    Bellew against Makabu and Haye.

    I lot of people were very concerned for Rigo against Donaire.. #Prayfor Rigo'sHealth

    I knew Bellew beats Haye, both times. People called me crazy but Haye is the most overrated fighter in history of this sport.

    Kovalev vs pascal 2. After the beating he gave him in the 1st I can't believe Jean wanted to go through that again.

    I didn't care to see a one eyed Antonio Margarito being fed to Miguel Cotto, who of course when straight for the injured eye (and still had to overcome a life and death struggle)

    People feared for Holyfield against Tyson at the time.

    George Foreman - Dwight Muhammad Qawi comes to mind. “Big” George vs. a good, but very little fighter.

    Povetkin - Rahman.
    I found it ridiculous that the WBA mandated it.

    Arturo Gatti against Mayweather. I knew he was walking out there to get absolutely lit up, I remember him flinching when the pyrotechnics went off during his ring walk and thinking it’s all downhill from here
