    Nah dude, unless he is just wide as hell.

    Kovalev had a big head. Same with Andre Ward.

    Ward was former amateur World level superstar and he had retired in time when he was 33.
    I really appreciate his opinion about his REAL prime. ;)
    Kovalev like a lot of notable boxers continued to fight when they were over the hill.

    Ward btw is stuff like : I read his opinions and things that he had told.
    Also DLH when he was 36 y.o.

    Interesting to see so many cite covid as a major factor. Seems the overall attitude towards the virus has become more serious on this board all of the sudden.

    Yeah, I think that might be it, Joe is wide as ****. Look at him at most of his weigh ins. He's huge, he almost looks like a comic book character.:lol:

    I think this is going to be a rough fight for Smith potentially one of his toughest. Vlasov is huge, can box, is durable. Can honestly see this one going either way. Smith can't let Vlasov settle into a rhythm otherwise he will probably be outboxed.

    In his interviews, Maxim has been chaining (valid) excuses together on some woe is me ****, then topping it off with something to the effect of “but none of that matters because I feel great and I’m ready to fight.”

    I take that to mean that Joe’s gonna spark his ass, theatrically, within the first 4 rounds... Seems like I’m in the minority though.

    Vaslov can't be there when Joe is set to punch, he has to move punch and make Joe reset. I think Joe, if he applies the constant pressure will start to burn his man up and stop him in the last 2 rounds or take a decision . I hope anyway, I like Joe

    Or.... It's the fact that athletes can have a harder time with viruses and infection than normal people.

    Might want to think things through before making passive-agressive cute comments in the future.

    Probably. Vlasov too. This is a fight where one man is going to have all of their hopes and dreams shattered in a dash, the other gets finally bask in glory. I don't want either guy to lose here - I like both. Will be happy for whomever wins.
