Let me know what you think of Zepeda.
And hey, can you change my pick to Yeleussinov by mid KO?

Solid fighter, not a fast starter, doesn't have the best head movement, but good blocking abilities, is patient, applies educated pressure, gets into range and throws combinations, stalks the opponent, he has good punch selection, can fight on the inside, that short right hook is a good shot, it looked more like the the left uppercuts which prompted Ramirez's coach to throw the towel in, but he landed the right hook at close range, with a lot of accuracy. I'm more impressed by Zepeda than Kambosos, I think he could give Lopez a tougher fight than Kambosos will (if that fight happens next), I'd give Zepeda a shot against Haney.
Also, what do you think of Porter as a commentator? I learned a couple of new things just in those 4-5 rounds.

I think he’d be a better challenge as well, for many of the reasons you mentioned. He selects his shots well, uses good setups and footwork out of the southpaw stance, has power Teo would have to respect, and doesn’t seem like be scared or deterred from engaging in a blow for blow. In the 3 or so fights of his I’ve seen, he’s looked good. I hope they step him up in his next few fights. I’m not impressed by Kambosos. I thought Bey nicked it against him, and though it will likely be a big money fight in Australia and Teo has to fight him as his mandatory, I don’t expect it to be very competitive.
He was solid. I think it will take that crew a few shows to catch their full stride, but they didn’t seem overly biased or distracting with their commentary, and he added good tidbits on the fighter perspective.

I haven't seen that fight, but I wasn't especially impressed or unimpressed by Kambosos against Selby, I thought his speed and combinations were the main differences, but I think against Lopez, his speed wouldn't matter, because Lopez would control the distance, he'd be shadow boxing, Lopez might take a few rounds to adjust to Kambosos's speed, but he'd find gaps, time Kambosos more easily as the rounds went on, and I think he'd stop him in the mid rounds.
Something I thought was interesting was about the fighter with the longer arms wanting to get off first so he doesn't give up his reach by looking for the counter and allowing the shorter opponent to cut the distance as he's coming in with the lead shot, and Porter also mentioned about every good coach telling a fighter to get his front foot outside the opponent's front foot, it's all interesting and good to know, I've been following boxing for 10 years and I'm still learning about it, from what you've told me in the past, you've been following it for more than 20, so you're ahead of me.
Have you seen the Spence vs Garcia undercard? I think it's good, should be great fights, I think Spence vs Garcia will be a good fight as well.
