May change them later. What do you think of Mikey vs. Prograis if it happens? Seems like an intriguing top level crossroads fight to me. Will you guys be able to get the Jermall vs. Castano fight this weekend? I don't feel strong about my Yigit pick but I think he has a good chance, in my view he is the best fighter Rolly has faced and as far as I know he's a late replacement.

I don't like the fight for Mikey at all, it's not an especially good opportunity in terms of money, it isn't for a world title, and winning is a big ask. For Prograis, it's a great fight, the timing favours him down to the ground, Mikey is past his prime, but not shot or so old it wouldn't be his best win, he can make a statement in that fight if he can stop Mikey. It hasn't been confirmed yet, but like with Tank vs Barrios, I think it will get picked up by fite TV or premier sports at the last minute, if not, it's a real shame. I don't agree on the fight because of how much offensively better Romero is and the inactivity, the size aspect makes it more interesting, especially for a fighter who is relatively reliant on hurting the opponent, but it's nowhere near enough in my opinion. It will be interesting to see how much Romero can improve from the Marinez fight, I think he's a talented fighter with a lot of flaws, and a lot of room for improvement, but Marinez wasn't that underrated based on the Commey fight, and I don't read too much into Sparrow fight, I doubt Sparrow lives the life, and I think Lundy was shot when he beat him.

I agree, I think the fight would give Mikey a boost with hardcore fans but it wouldn't do much for his profile or financially. I think it favors Prograis for the same reason but Mikey does the fundamentals so well it will present different challenges than Taylor did. I agree that the Sparrow win doesn't mean much, I'm betting on that Romero doesn't fight intelligently and won't improve himself, but it would definitely be an upset. A shame about how this month has shook out with the Fury vs. Wilder card but I think Charlo vs. Castano can redeem it some. Hopefully you'll be able to catch the Charlo vs. Castano fight because I can't see it failing in terms of entertainment, I think their styles will gel together well.

I definitely agree on Mikey doing the fundamentals especially well, but I don't think he can keep Prograis off, and the fight favours Prograis as it goes on, I don't think Mikey's fundamentals will be a problem for Prograis, enough of a challenge that the fight will be competitive, but not enough to make Prograis need an adjustment, of course I'll be rooting for Mikey, but I just can't give him a good shot. Yigit's movement could be a problem for Romero, he's an aggressive, come forward fighter, but he's not a good pressure fighter, that being said, I doubt Yigit can do enough offensively or implement the right game plan for 12 rounds, I don't think he has transitioned well from amateur to professional. It stinks, Fury is no doubt to blame, he was stupid to reject the second vaccine dose, with how much was at stake, Ajagba was hospitalised, I hope we still see his fight against Sanchez in October, but it's obviously a bad sign for him. I agree it will be a great fight, I also don't see how it couldn't be unless one of them fights extremely out of character, you might find my game plan analysis interesting, it isn't too long either.

Gold's picture

I think Prograis is just a level above athletically even if they were both at their peaks, so I think that with the skills of Prograis will make it difficult for Mikey to do enough offensively.

I agree with your Charlo vs. Castano analysis that who dictates the terms of engagement will be a key in the fight, if Castano can catch Charlo's punches well or use his defense well I think it could be a tricky fight for Charlo to win. How do you think the Harrison fight factors into it for Charlo? I saw you talked about his effectiveness when he gets backed up, I thought he got frustrated with Harrison in the first fight which brought down his effectiveness. Obviously, Harrison and Castano are very different fighters, Harrison is taller than Charlo and was jab centric whereas Castano is shorter and throws more power punches, but it would be interesting to see if Charlo got backed up by Castano consistently if he could fight his way out of it. Castano is well schooled, he is one of the best if not the best technically Charlo has faced.

Fury is definitely to blame, I certainly wouldn't blame Wilder for trying to take legal action against it if possible. I saw somewhere the casino execs weren't happy about the cancelation because they were hoping it would fill some of this down period, hopefully that will force it to be rescheduled as soon as possible.

I don't agree he's a level above athletically because Mikey doesn't tire in the late rounds of a 12 round fight and can keep up a decent pace, but I agree Prograis is the better athlete because he has good stamina as well, neither fighter is fast or explosive, but with the timing aspect, I expect Prograis to recover better and hold up down the stretch, and I think Mikey is more sluggish than Prograis at 147.

I think it proves Charlo's adaptability, he holds up mentally when he's pushed back, and his timing is exceptional, the left hook which was the beginning of the end for Harrison was off the back foot, having said that, he doesn't box well off the back foot outside a great set up and counter, can be out worked, and he's defensively poor, the Harrison fight shows Charlo is still a great when he's pushed onto the back foot, but I think the key question is if Castano can be consistent with his pressure, without making a mistake and getting timed. I think a big difference between Castano and Harrison in terms of Charlo's ability to hurt them off the back foot, is the shot he does damage with, it was a left hook, high on the head, the best shot for him against Castano is the uppercut because not only is Castano small, but he uses his height and comes in low. I agree, he doesn't look technically brilliant when he fights, but blocking is definitely a great skill, so is cutting off the ring, and I was impressed by his timing against Lara. I think Castano's game plan should be similar to how Derevyanchenko fought against Golovkin, throw a combination to the head to take his focus, drop the attack to the body, and move off to the side, Castano definitely has to make Charlo work mentally.

It's back on for October 9, but that's closer to 2 years than 1, between the second and third fight, that's a long time out for both fighters, even considering the pandemic, and that's after Joshua vs Usyk, so the timing aspect favours Joshua if he fights the winner next year.

Gold's picture

I think it is a matter of Mikey being more conservative with his output and punch selection versus bigger guys, Prograis threw at a good rate versus Taylor if that's what you're referring to.

It may be splitting hairs but in the Harrison rematch I think it was in part Harrison fatiguing mentally and physically, I know he did poorly in his last fight but I think he should move up to 160 with his frame. It may give him better stamina and punch resistance, but that's an aside. Charlo has a very good chin/recovery so I don't think he has to be overly worried about being timed by Castano, but rather being outworked while being pressured. He's the A-side in Texas but Texas judges have consistently favored aggression so that may also add to the importance of leading in the fight. I agree, maybe there is something in his amateur history to inform it but Castano will have his chin tested because as you said, the uppercut will be there for Charlo which is a great punch for him. I agree about the Derevychenko vs. Golovkin comparison, I think the more looks Castano can give Charlo the better, he's the better volume combination puncher of the two.

Do you think more time will favor Wilder or Fury (or neither) in their fight? I can see arguments for all to be honest.

The price he pays there is being out worked, and obviously, if he isn't dictating the terms of the fight, he can't just pace himself with his punch output, if he's forced onto his back foot, forced to react, and hit with clean shots. That's what I base that on, Taylor wasn't coasting, and Prograis still finished strong, both fighters have good stamina, but I think Prograis is likely to have better stamina at this stage, that isn't even considering Mikey will likely have to work harder than Prograis, so it's definitely likely to go more Prograis's way as it goes on.

I don't think that's splitting hairs at all, it makes sense, Harrison doesn't have good stamina, the fight was at a high tempo, and Harrison had taken more out of himself than forcing the pace, because Charlo wouldn't be broken down physically or mentally on the back foot even if he wasn't backing up voluntarily, but Harrison wasn't gassed anywhere near the extent he was against Hurd, his stamina had at least improved since that fight, and there's no doubt that Charlo's counter left hook was timed brilliantly off the back foot, same against Rosario as well, and in both fights, the opponent isn't lunging in chin first. I don't know if I agree he should move up, what you say makes sense, he's big for 154, and the weight cut takes a toll, but if his chin doesn't hold up well at 154, it definitely wouldn't at 160, and gassing would be even more costly if weight wasn't the issue at 154.

I should have been clear, I think Charlo's timing is a lot more important than Castano's, his timing is better, but I don't think it's as much of a case of the opponent timing Charlo but more just implementing the right game plan, obviously timing is always important to a certain extent, but Charlo is relatively stationary defensively, gets out worked, whereas there is a certain split second to throw against a Castano who adjust his feet and height as he's about to attack. I agree being out worked is a concern for Charlo, he doesn't need a big mistake from Charlo to land the shot that derailed Harrison and Rosario, but Castano is more durable than they are, and it's all or nothing with a fighter like Charlo, who gets out worked and sometimes out boxed for the duration of the fight. I don't think aggression will be a factor with the judging bias based on Estrada vs Gonzalez II, but no one will be surprised if Charlo gets favourable judging. I saw earlier today, we can buy the fight on Fite TV, can't wait to see it.

So can I, you could argue Wilder will struggle to be patient, and if Fury hasn't been living the life, that extra time favours him, but you could argue it favours Wilder because he's motivated by the fight, is obsessed with beating Fury, whereas Fury seems to just want Wilder out the way, he's more likely to slack off in camp. I think the time favours Wilder because I think he's taking the fight more seriously. Which do you think if either?

Gold's picture

Champ I'll reply soon (probably tonight) but can I switch to Romero beats Yigit by UD?

Champion97's picture

Yes, I can't imagine what changed your mind, Yigit must be ready, he wasn't even 6 pounds over the limit.

Gold's picture

Do you remember if he was on the card before and if so what weight? It would be a very bad miss if he was on it before at 135. I've heard mixed things about if he was really brought in on short notice to the card or if he was just moved to the Rolly fight. I'm sure I could find out but I don't know if I want to lol

Champion97's picture

I don't think he was already on the card, I don't remember seeing his name when I was looking at the event on BoxRec. It's always a bad miss when the fighter doesn't even make the weight above.

Gold's picture

I'm sure you heard it but they said they had him scheduled for 140 on the card before putting him in the Rolly fight, they must not have had him entered on boxrec

Champion97's picture

My mistake. I changed my prediction to Romero early, I think he's out to make a statement, Yigit is inactive and unprepared.

Gold's picture

I agree that Rolly looks focused, he needs to make a statement to keep himself in the conversation in my opinion

Gold's picture

I'll put it to you this way, as a fan of Mikey what fight would you like Mikey to take? I think at the moment he kind of boxed himself in at 140-147, if it was possible for him to stay at 135 he would have so many great options.

I don't know if he's a big weight cutter or not, if so that can weaken his punch resistance to actually having a better chin at 160 due to less dehydration of cerebral fluid.

Glad to hear you'll be able to watch, I'll be watching the whole televised card on Showtime (starting now).

I agree, I think it more likely favors Wilder, he has more adjustments to make with a new trainer and it seems he's trying to gain mass. Of course, it goes back to the same question about the motivation of Fury so its hard to tell.
