  1. Good list.

    So, Kovalev won’t get past Ward, you think? The layoff won’t have taken anything off the, ahem, Son of God?

    I’m fairly confident GGG could banish Cotto from the P4P, and I believe you are even more confident.

    Btw, there’s a Wlad interview kicking around YouTube (no link to hand, sorry) in which he amusingly disses Shannon Briggs, saying the stalking has to stop. It’s the one conducted by a fellow nutty Ukrainian nationalist and ends with what looks to be the whole point of the session — Wlad’s boring little drum beat for a new Cold War.

    • Thanks

      Ward would still be favourite in that fight, and looked as sharp as ever against Dawson and Rodriguez after prior layoffs. Obviously a Kovalev fight wont be happening for the foreseeable anyway.

      GGG would slaughter Cotto, and I quite heavily favour Canelo to beat Cotto anyway. Marquez is another who probably isnt going to be listed here for much longer.

      Will have to find that video!

      Wlad has a big fight this weekend against Pulev, probably the best challenger the division has to offer. That said, I expect the usual one-sided win…and a Briggs fight to follow. LET’S GO CHAMP!

      Wlad has a 3-fight deal in place with HBO now, starting with Saturday’s contest

    • Thanks for the link!

      I doubt HBO have any say on who he fights. IBF mandatory Pulev is the top challenger out there, but Briggs would be dreck, however entertaining the buildup

      WBO mandatory, Fury-Chisora rematch winner, will likely follow that, so another top challenger

    • Just watched the vid, “nutty Ukranian nationalist” is right

      Also, Artur Szpilka sucks, even though he beat a shot Adamek. I was amused by Wlad thinking, but unable to be sure, that he was a sparring partner in his camp once
