    July is looking to be very promising, with 2 big fights happening on the same week. It's not often you get 3 highly anticipated fights between undefeated fighters set in the same month. They all have a possibility of being either highly competitive or one sided with a likelihood of a KO.

    Which one are you looking forward to the most?

    Ortiz vs Stan stylistically as it should be a barn burner

    Always love watching the murderous punching laser precision Japanese leprechaun Inoue do his thing but I'm really hoping to see Fulton get robbed in that one and then denied a rematch. Sadly I don't think Inoue would ever do something like that though.

    Best case scenario is Fulton gets robbed in the first fight, Inoue makes him come back over to Japan for the rematch and the JBC appoint Toshio Sugiyama as the ref and Kazutoshi Yoshida, Suehiro Tsuchiya, and Toshio Sugiyama as the judges and Fulton gets KTFO due to having to take more risks and fighting more aggressively to try and take it out of the judge's hands so they don't rob him again.

    And if Inoue wants to whip his little sushi out and have a little tinkle on him after laying him out I'm certainly not the one who will be filing a complaint with the JCB about it. Nothing against Fulton personally at all as he seems like a good guy, but that's how I wanna see it play out and there ain't nothing wrong with that.

    I've lost a lot of interest in seeing Crawford vs Spence given how long they dragged it all out and were playing the barking dogs either side of the gate game with each other. It will still be intriguing to watch despite that though.

    Funnily enough, the free Inoue-Fulton is the one fight that is actually worth the cost of PPV.

    Ortiz vs Stanionis is the best matchup and on paper a can't miss war.

    Inoue/fulton is a close second

    Spence Vs Crawford has lost a lot of sizzle but still a can't miss fight.

    Interesting.

    Inoue and Fulton are both more skilled than Ortiz and Stanionis.
