    Heavyweight Jan Hrebi who has a record of 1 -14 will meet Martin Stensky who has a record of 3-45.

    I've never seen a match like this before. What are the chances of a double knockout?

    There was a very good reason this fight was made. It is the final eliminator to fight Deontay Wilder for his WBC strap.

    They probably look like sin City characters. It'd be fun to watch in person

    Much respect for at least getting in square circle.

    Because it’s a fair fight between two evenly matched guys? One where each guy actually has a chance to win?

    You complain about this but not when they get matched with undefeated opponents or guys with records like 10-1 or 18-1?

    There should be more matches like this instead of using them as fodder to build other people’s records all the time.

    Fills a space on the card.

    Also, maybe the promoter had promised them both a fight against better opposition; the usual prospect opponents these type of guys fight, but, for whatever reason, those fights fell through, so the promoter kept his word and gave them a fight by matching them together.

    Whoa whoa whoa! If you're going to be making sense around here, be prepared to face the consequences.

    Can't have that. Our rank and file posters will have a fit! There has to be some underlying reason! Did somebody test positive for a PED? Perhaps a promoter has some nefarious purpose in making the match?

    Somehow there seems to be interest in knowing who's the more pathetic of the two.

    Stensky's average win loss ratio is 1-15
    Whilst Hrebi's is 1-14

    Case closed. Hrebi > Stensky

    Perhaps some bozo will accuse them both of being glass jawed or one of the other cliched obsessions certain oddballs have on this site.
