Prediction,

This an awesome match up, I'm very impressed by both fighters, Baranchyk is relentless, has an extremely high output, Taylor is very technically skilled, both are unbeaten, both were very impressive in the quarterfinals, both fought unbeaten opponents, both were dominant and got mid stoppages.

Taylor had a decent amateur career, fought in 2 AIBA tournaments, was a 2012 Olympian, beat Robson Conceição to advance to the 2nd leg, lost out on getting to the quarterfinals, but he also has amateur wins over Jeff Horn, Anthony Yigit, Jamel Herring. Baranchyk was a decent amateur himself, he was in an AIBA tournament as well. As an amateur, Baranchyk beat Ionut Baluta, Robeisy Ramirez (2016 Olympic Gold medallist, Ramirez beat Shakur Stevenson for the gold, so to beat him is definitely a good win).

Baranchyk has had 19 fights, Taylor has had 14, he has more experience, but not the better experience, outside of Postol, there isn't much in it in terms of who has fought the better opposition, but Taylor had that great learning fight against Postol, it was a tough fight, he had problems, for 8 rounds, it was close, I thought he lost the majority of the first 8, but he proved his adaptability, pulled away, overtook Postol, got a late knockdown, beat Postol, the cards were controversially wide, somewhat took away from the fact that Taylor beat Postol, it seemed like a scandal. The Postol win gives Taylor better pedigree than Baranchyk has, it is by far the best win between them, and experience is probably on Taylor's side.

Both these guys can punch, but Taylor, with a 23% higher KO ratio, is probably the puncher, Baranchyk has been down, Taylor has not, that suggests Taylor will come out on top if they trade power shots, but Baranchyk has a good chin, I don't think he was in real trouble when he went down against Ramos, and although Taylor has a high output, it is definitely not as high as Baranchyk's output, he hits easily hard enough that that high number of clean punches will inflict damage.

I think both fighters are very good body punchers, against Petrov, Baranchyk did a lot of damage to the body, landed accurate, sickening body shots, and Taylor, against Davies, might have knocked the fight out of him with that left to the body, I think it was his best weapon in that fight, he stopped Vazquez with a body shot as well. Both fighters will try to work the body early, but it will be interesting to see who can land more early body shots, out of the more active fighter, and the fighter who can fire from the outside as well as work on the inside.

I think Taylor will win this, and I think so because he can fight on the outside and the inside, Baranchyk, is nowhere near as good an overall outside fighter as Taylor. I think in terms of consistency, defence, footwork, overall technical skill, Taylor is better, the boxer will beat the brawler more often than not, and that's why I think Taylor will win.

Baranchyk has a good chance in this fight, he has been dominant in his last two fights, he has an extremely high output, is relentless, punches at angles, has very good variety, is a very good inside fighter. Baranchyk might be simply too rugged, might be able to force the fight on the inside, and his output, pressure, could be enough in this fight, but I think Taylor will adapt, I think Taylor is the more complete fighter, he can box on the outside, fight on the inside, and although Baranchyk is a better inside fighter, when it comes to boxing on the outside, there is no comparison, and Taylor has more than enough skill at distance to outbox Baranchyk and pick him off.

I think Baranchyk will be very strong in the early rounds, will throw a phenomenal amount of punches, maybe 100 in a couple of the early rounds, will hurt Taylor a couple of times, will attack head and body, but Taylor will do a good job of fighting in the pocket, will land the better quality punches, will block and telegraph Baranchyk's punches better, and the first half of the fight, despite possibly the majority favouring Baranchyk 4-2, will be close. I think in the early rounds, Taylor can move, not let his back touch the ropes, if Baranchyk is conservative and applies educated pressure, but I don't think Baranchyk will do that.

I think in second half, Baranchyk will tire, will be fatuiged from his own pace, his punches will lose power, he will not be able to force out as many shots, and if he backs up or even relents for a second, that's where Taylor can score points, because once the fight is at range, Taylor can easily out box Baranchyk, and if Baranchyk, backs up, tries to take a breather, he can't get away with it, because he is not a good fighter on the back foot. I think in the second half, they will both empty their tanks, the last couple of rounds will be close, but in rounds 8-10, even if Taylor is tired as well from being forced to work at a high pace and hit with energy sapping punches, when the pace slows down, Taylor is the one who can just nick a few shots, has the technical skill to nick narrow rounds, so I expect Taylor to take over in the second half.

I think Taylor wins a UD. The scoring in Scotland is questionable to say the least, when a fighter and his team admit the judges scored it too wide in his favour, you know the judges are either corrupt or poor, more likely corrupt. If the judges give Baranchyk a fair shake, I think Taylor wins 113-115/112-116.

I think this fight will be somewhat similar to Mayweather vs Maidana.

Agreed very good fight and I am looking forward to it.
By the way your boxing knowledge is unbelieveable and I can feel your passionate for the sport.
From which country are you ?

Champion97's picture

Thanks man.
UK, you?

petieroach's picture

Another fantastic write up, but is it true this fight is on the fritz right now? Baranchyk's promoter says they are pulled out of the fight and the tourney while Baranchyk himself and his trainer say they are still training for this fight.

Champion97's picture

Thanks. I believe Baranchyk was going to pull out of the tournament because this fight was taking too long to be finalised, but shortly after that, the fight was confirmed, I don't know why, but I haven't heard anything about them pulling out since the fight was confirmed.

Did I ask you if you wanted to be in the prediction competition?, if I did I apologise for reheating myself.

petieroach's picture

Yeah it is absolutely a shame if the fight is dead now, here's hoping things get sorted out. And yeah I'm game for the prediction competition

Champion97's picture

It was one of the match ups I was looking forward to the most, but if the fight doesn't happen, then there is still Alvarez vs Jacobs, Spence vs Garcia, Joshua vs Miller, Rungvasai vs Estrada II, might not be 50/50 fights, but all good, underrated fights.

Awesome man, if you could predict the outcome, but also KO or decision, and UD or S/MD, and KO, early, mid, late.

Here is the vault.

Shawn Porter vs Yordenis Ugas
Tevin Farmer vs Jono Carroll
Katie Taylor vs Rose Volante
Gabe Rosado vs Maciej Sulecki
Errol Spence Jr vs Mikey Garcia
David Benavidez vs J'Leon Love
Luis Nery vs McJoe Arroyo
Kosei Tanaka vs Ryuichi Taguchi
Dmitry Bivol vs Joe Smith
Maurice Hooker vs Mikkel LesPierre
Liam Smith vs Sam Eggington
Kubrat Pulev vs Bogdan Dinu
Kerman Lejarraga vs David Avanesyan
Lamont Peterson vs Sergey Lipinets
Ray Robinson vs Egidijus Kavaliauskas
Oleksandr Gvozdyk vs Doudou Ngumbu

I just looked it up, and it now seems like Baranchyk is out, real shame, not for a reason that is unavoidable either, some dispute between teams, disappointing if the fight is hampered because of that.

Champion97's picture

Fight is on again now, tickets went on sale today.

Champion97's picture

Brilliant fight!
I thought it was close, I can see 115-111, 117-109 seems too wide, but I think the right fighter got the decision.

Baranchyk did well overall, but I think at times, he was loading up too much, should have thrown more punches, but a lot of that was down to Taylor controlling the distance. I don't think Baranchyk should have left his trainer and gone to Roach, but it was still a good performance from him.

I think Taylor boxed very well, he had the more variety than Baranchyk, he caught Baranchyk with that great right hook in round 6, swung the fight in his favour, almost stopped Baranchyk. Taylor is a better technical fighter than Baranchyk, but I think he is also a harder puncher, I think Baranchyk was known as a puncher just because he's a come fprward fighter, certainly not a non-puncher, but not all rugged come forward fighters with aggression, output, are devastating punchers.
