Klitschko-Chisora, Rios-Gamboa, NBC Sports Network more…

At least Dereck Chisora (15-2, 9 KO’s)emphatically signed his death warrant.

By slapping Vitali Klitschko (43-2, 40 KO’s)in the face during their “stare down”, Chisora all but guaranteed he will be KO’d. Chisora has made repeated claims of how he is going to knock out Vitali in their bout scheduled for tomorrow (Feb 18, Epix & EpixHD.com). Yet a much more accomplished fighter (and better power puncher) in Lennox Lewis all but hit him in the face with a sledgehammer and Vitali didn’t even get shaken.

Since the fight is tomorrow I’ll go ahead and throw my official prediction out there;

Chisora doesn’t have nearly enough experience, size, or punching power to do the damage necessary. Vitali will throw that thunderous jab and wait until Chisora opens himself up, allowing Vitali to exploit that opening and turn it into a barrage of unyielding power punches.

Vitali Klitschko by 5th round TKO.

The upcoming boxing schedule just got a huge shot in the arm as HBO announced Yuriorkis Gamboa (21-0, 16 KO’s) vs. Brandon Rios (29-0-1, 22 KO’s) for April 14. I should have listed this fight on my Fight Fights Wishlist post, just a gross oversight on my part. Continue reading “Klitschko-Chisora, Rios-Gamboa, NBC Sports Network more…”

Other times you look lazy, lethargic and basically like you flat-out don’t care.

It’s frustrating being a boxing fan and having to see someone with your talent and to see you make other fighters look bad, to make them look utterly pathetic, only to turn around and look pathetic yourself.

I love seeing a talent like you come up. To see you literally have people’s jaws dropping at the awesome speed you possess, to see your nearly unparalleled athleticism in action.

Sadly, that jaw dropping athleticism and speed you display only comes in flashes.

It should be more than that Zab. You have to know this if myself and anyone who knows anything about boxing knows it. It’s inexcusable.

I have had, and will have, people disagree with me over what I am about to say, so here we go…
