    IB's RBR disclaimer:

    DO NOT ASK FOR LINKS! Do not hint for them. Do not ask "what channel?". Do not make any post that could be interpreted as insinuating a link request, even if it sounds innocent (ie stuff like "Gee, I don't have a way to watch this" or "if only this was televised where I live...")


    The folks at ESB do not want to get sued and therefore have adopted a VERY strict policy of zero-tolerance on stream requests to cover their butts.


    Thank you.


    PS. My only other request is that, as a matter of courtesy, you refrain from posting spoilers if you are aware of undercard results that most people are going to see televised on delay. Please also don't spoil results from other unrelated events here. Thanks.

    It starts at 10pm US Eastern Time, so in 4 hours. Depending on how long the undercard matches last, the main even could be anywhere from 5 1/2 to 6 hours away.

    I think Fulton stops Figueroa.
    Lopez stops kambosos.
    And the Japanese guy stops South African man.

    Why would you think a guy with 8 KO's, who struggles to even stun most opponents is going to be able to stop a fighter with a certified iron chin, who's walked through bombs from some of the most heavy handed fighters in the division, completely unfazed? Brandon will suffocate, manhandle and batter Fulton stopping him in 8.

    Agree on the other two predictions though.:D

    Figueroa looks like he will punch himself out and Nery looked off. We shall see. It's merely a hunch not much research has gone into it lol

    Nah, it went exactly how I said it would.:deal: Nery the bully was still Nery the bully, only that time, he wasn't allowed to be Nery the bully, because Brandon was the bigger, meaner bully, with the better chin. He took the play away and out bullied the bully. But he did it by using brains and brawn, he used his awkward upper body movement, chin, size and strength to outmuscle and smother Nery's best shots by getting in so close, Nery didn't have any room to get proper extension on anything, therefore lessening the power of his shots he actually could get off greatly, and lessening has output to a degree. Therefore forcing Nery to fight his fight, which meant Nery had to become an expert inside fighter in the blink of an eye, which he was incapable of doing. So he ended up getting manhandled, outhustled, outworked and beaten physically, mentally and emotionally into submission. The same exact thing he's going to do to Fulton, because yes, Figueroa who is an incredible suffocating relentless pressure fighter is a special talent.

    This is a true 50/50 match up, initially went with Brandon, but I'm worried whether Covid has caused any significant damage to him and thus I'm leaning towards a close points win for Fulton.

    I have a feeling that Fulton's edge in speed, and abilty to match him in terms of workrate will allow him to bank enough rounds to walk away with a close but clear win. Brandon's got to establish the jab early and not square up so often, because if he doesn't, he's giving Fulton the chance to pelt him at range and in close. I like both guys, so I wouldn't mind it all if I'm wrong, but Fulton's my pick by close UD in a fight that could be complete and utter fire by the time all is said and done.
