    Great fight. Finally a real fight for hrgovic. Hrgovic by close ud or knockout. He is a quality fighter who is not getting a chance to show it. Finally he has a chance against a prime skilled operator

    Chances of this on an AJ undercard?

    I thought Hunter edged 40 year old Povetkin and I rate him as a top 10 heavyweight but Hgrovic is too big and powerful and more skilled than Bakole or Kuzmin. Hunter was on the brink of being stopped by Usyk at cruiser after being outboxed for 9 or 10 rounds and Hrgovic punches far harder than Usyk. Hrga wins by decision or late stoppage.

    It would be stupid not to do so.

    Hunter looked terrible last time out. So much so that if he'd faced Martin, I'd favor Martin.

    Michael Hunter is ridiculously overrated.

    If Hrgovic ends up being anywhere near as good as people make out, he'll win this comfortably.

    Great fight. I think Hunter wins.

    Wonder why Martin pulled out? Any updates on his fight with Wilder?

    Hrgovic has a bad habit of moving straight back with his head up and jaw exposed.

    Maybe he does it if he thinks he can't be hurt or maybe it's a habit.

    If he does that in this in this fight he could get starched.

    Hrgovic obviously has talent but I am not sold on his defense. If he tightens that up he should win this one.

    Either way, this fight will answer some questions.

    I didn't see his last performance as it was against a nobody on a day with much better fights on but I heard it was a flat effort from him. Was it all that bad really? If so I may rethink this matchup because Hrgovic has been disposing of his mismatched opponents with incredible ease.

    I like Hunter and rate him but heavyweight is not his weight class. He may beat some good guys and even could win a vacant belt but he's not gonna be a champ for long against such bigger men consistently.

    Really? Michael Hunter has been a pro for eight years. He is going to be 33 years old in a couple months. He doesn't even have 20 wins. His claim to fame is NOT winning against Usyk and Povetkin.

    And, in his last fight, against the 256th rated heavyweight, he didn't look good at all.

    I don't know if there is going to be "a time" for Michael Hunter.

    It's nice to have connections, though.
