Gold's picture

Not impressed by Gvozdyk at all, he is not world championship caliber.

Not sure I agree with that, but there were mistakes, I do think Amar not really having the power to create consequences for any slip ups from Gvozdyk was the reason for it being such a one sided fight. I think Gvozdyk is a good, solid offensive fighter, he can punch, his punch selection is good, he has some good attributes, but he is not the most compact, and I don't see him beating the likes of Bivol, Beterbiev, Kovalev to be honest, he deserves a world title shot though, 15-0.

Might have asked you this before, but Stevenson vs Jack who you got?

Gold's picture

I think he has earned his shot at a title, I just don't think he has a chance at winning one. Like you said, guys like Bivol and Kovalev would exploit his defensive weaknesses big time. If Gvozdyk was the real deal, he would have gotten guys like Amar out of there and guys like Baker out of there a lot easier, who are not meant to really challenge Gvozdyk.

I'm not sure if we have talked about it before but I posted my thoughts about it. I think Badou Jack will win, he is a very good boxer. Stevenson has a real chance because of his unreal power, but as the fight goes on his chance to win will decrease considerably. Jack works the body well, he is a damaging puncher, and I believe that Stevenson has declined significantly since we last saw him versus relevant opposition.

I would think that likely, I think winning is winning to a degree, but we've seen him make mistakes and struggle at times, it is hard to imagine him beating a top dog at 175.

I agree, I think if Stevenson doesn't knock Jack out inside 4 rounds, he's in trouble, he has that lightening speed, power, ferocity, and all that muscle, brute strength, Jack is in potential danger for a good 3 rounds, and he must be careful, but as the rounds tick by, Stevenson being 40 is inevitably going to be a massive problem for him, and interestingly, if you look at their weight history, height, you see that naturally, Jack isn't even smaller than Stevenson, he's naturally bigger I think, so that will help him as the fight goes on, and Stevenson has some real vulnerabilities. I don't think Jack does anything spectacular, I don't think he is a top 10, or a top 20 fighter, but I think he is a solid fighter, compact boxer, makes you work, has variety, and I think if Stevenson has taken the gamble he has to take early if he has a chance of winning, he will be tired, and Jack can break him down.
I think Jack stops Stevenson in 8-10, I would not be at all surprised if Stevenson stopped Jack early though, I don't think it is that unlikely, and Jack has to be careful early, because Stevenson is dangerous.

The one thing I would be worried about the most with Stevenson is a lot of his offense previously relied on speed and athleticism to land his big shots. Versus guys like Fonfara and Williams that may not have been exposed where it may versus Jack. That is a very good point about the weight histories, I forgot that Stevenson had been fighting at Super Middleweight for the majority of his career until he got his shot versus Chad Dawson. I agree Jack does not do anything special or flashy, but he is deceptively good like you mentioned, otherwise he would not have had a good run like he did at Super Middleweight. I think he definitely deserves mention as a top 20 fighter in the world if you look at his resume. Not many boxers could beat Anthony Dirrell, Groves, Bute, and draw DeGale in back to back fights.
