How is your mom doing? Been a bit since we last spoke? Is she responding better to the treatment?

She’s done with chemo and radiation, and now just has to put weight back on. Next is another PET Scan in a month to see how it’s progresses, or if they got it all nipped.

We will pray for the best result possible!

Thanks buddy. We’re fighters, so we plan on making it through. I’m pretty tough, but ain’t got shit on her. Our lives have always been a rough go, fighting for everyhitng we have, so won’t stop now.

Interested in seeing how you score the rest of Teo and Nakatani, and your write up for Teo-Commey. Regardless of who wins, I think that should be a fun fight! That and Ruiz-AJ II are the ones I’m looking forward to the most through the rest of the year.

That's the spirit man!

One thing I will say now, without seeing the whole fight, is that although Lopez's reputation as this invincible kid who will destroy Loma and everyone else at 135 is easy work, although that hype is gone, that is not good for a fighter, and going 12 rounds, in a competitive fight, being tested, but not taking much damage, is the best case scenario for Lopez in the long run, he had the fight I thought he would have against Tatli, I don't know if I buy the excuses about personal problems, but that was a good learning fight for Lopez, maybe now, he will be more realistic about where he is at, and he will be a better fighter for it, I'll never be a big fan of Lopez, but I think he has the potential not to be better than Lomachencko, but to be a very good fighter.

Good fights, both of them, I'm also looking forward to Golovkin vs Derevyanchenko and Beterbiev vs Gvozdyk.

Those 2 should be bangers are well. Hope Wilder-Ortiz is good as well. Need this HW situation to clear up soon. If Wilder and Ruiz can both get through rematches with Fury and AJ, that would seem to be the easiest way we can see a true undisputed HW champ, with both being with PBC. Any other scenario could muddy the waters, as I don’t know how promotional BS will go if Arum, Eddie, and Al all have a finger in the pie.

I think it will be, I don't think it will be as good as the first fight, but still a good one. Yes, seems to be the easiest to make. Personally, I think AJ and Fury will win the rematches, I know you disagree, but that only makes it more interesting. I think Wembeley will sell out next year, 90,000, Joshua vs Fury, biggest British boxing fight of all time, and I'm not a biased Brit, but still, I would not be surprised if Ruiz beat Joshua, I would be more surprised if Wilder beat Fury, but I still wouldn't be shocked, and I am rooting for Wilder! Hope he proves me wrong.

I figure both are close to 50/50. I think AJ and Ruiz can easily KO each other. I just think Ruiz May have his number, and the handspeed is the biggest difference in that fight to me. I know this goes against the basic logic of boxing, but I truly think Wilder will improve more in the second fight compared to Fury. Fury will be in better shape for sure, but don’t think that affected his boxing in the first fight. I think he will fight the exact same fight and look to win a decision by frustrating Wilder. If we believe that Wilder hurt his arm prior to the fight, and had a limited camp with sparring and conditioning, then I’d have to think he’ll perform better this go around. He has better IQ and boxing skills than he’s credited for, and Fury was less than a second from getting KOd last time, got up in the nick of time. If A fully healthy Wilder, one who has seen how Fury will look to frustrate him this time, and not fight as timid, goes to land those bombs earlier in the fight, knowing his chin can hold up to the power of Fury, then I think he gets the KO. Fury has a much smaller margin or error in that fight compared to Wilder, and again will come off fighting a couple soft touches leading up, which I don’t think helps him while Wilder is fighting a tougher opponent who will make him adapt in the fights and test him like the last fight with Ortiz. Wouldn’t be shocked at all if Fury wins though and I agree, should Fury and AJ win, that would be a huge fight in the UK, just got to hope promotional crap doesn’t impede it.

I don't think AJ can easily KO Ruiz, I think he wins a UD. It's possible, but foot speed is more important in my opinion, and I think Joshua has the skills to control the distance, stop Ruiz from fighting his fight, and last time, Joshua made the mistake Ruiz needed him to make. I don't know, I agree he was in good shape the first time, you have to be to get up off the deck like that, but I think he started to tire after 8 rounds, and that's why Wilder was able to catch up to him, put him down in round 9. He might do the same thing he did last time, but some people think he shouldn't have been so mobile and defensive in the early rounds, I don't know if I agree, but some people say he should have tried to push Wilder onto the back foot, try to lean on Wilder, bully him, so he might do that, but I don't know, because Wilder is not as unskilled as people think, against Ortiz, in round 10, he hurt him with the right hand, off the back foot.

And all it takes is one mistake, Wilder is capable of hitting Fury harder than that, because that shot came late in the fight, when Wilder had lost some power, I know Fury had been buzzed, was generally tired, Fury, but he hadn't taken a lot of punches prior to that shot that put him down, so I don't think he is much more resistant when it comes to taking the power earlier in the fight.

You will disagree, and I hope I'm wrong, but in my opinion, Wilder can't find the chin until it's too late, if at all, like last time, Fury's stamina will be slightly better, will be even harder to catch up to, and this time, he will start faster, Fury, because the early rounds were close last time, because of the ring rust, a problem he won't have this time, but still, Wilder can take a lot of risks, try anything to win, whereas Fury has to be careful, because one mistake, and it could be lights out, Wilder's relative lack of technical skill (which I agree is exaggerated) won't matter if he lands clean, because he is the most dangerous puncher in boxing.
