Now on an interesting news on why sometimes boxing shoots itself in the foot.  I wrote recently about MMA vs Boxing, “Another advantage is that UFC is the premier mixed martial arts division and if you are the UFC champion, you are the champion whereas WBO, IBF, WBA, and WBC have their own champions and we have can have as many as 68 champions and I doubt the top boxing writers could list who is champion in each of these sanctioning body 디자인 돌 다운로드. Dana White of UFC has proved to be superior in promoting his sport than the main promoters of boxing who seem to think of the next big fight but not beyond that.” We just had a competitive great fight between the two best heavyweights, and we crowned an undisputed heavyweight champion, Oleksandr Usyk as he defeated Tyson Fury.  IBF has decided in their wisdom to strip Usyk if he chooses to fight Fury in a rematch.  While I understand that Croatia Filip Hrgovic wants his shot at a heavyweight title but there are two realities, the first is that Usyk and Fury are the two best heavyweight and two, it is the best money-making fight and the one fight that fans want to see. 

Hrgovic is looking to fight British fighter Daniel Dubois June 1st in  Saudi Arabia and IBF is considering making this as a possible IBF championship fight.  This is why Boxing is losing to MMA, because Dana White would not allow an undisputed champion to lose a championship belt if he chooses a rematch in the UFC.  White would even promote the fight if the fight stood to make money 알리미벨 다운로드. Here is the kicker, the winner gets to fight Anthony Joshua, who already lost twice to Usyk.   Let take one more thing, Usyk at the age oof 37 has little time to make big bucks plus his country in a fight for its survival so maybe the IBF can wait until after the rematch.  IBF may be excited about a Hrgovic-Dubois fight, but the rest of the boxing world wants a Fury-Usyk battle 다운로드. IBF shows why boxing fans get frustrated with boxing.  You had a great fight, and fans are now hungry for more, but you have a sanctioning body that decides that maybe we need yet another champion.

MMA “versus” Boxing

Boxing was once part of American landscape as big boxing matches competed with Baseball, Football and even basketball for the attention of American sports fans.  Muhammad Ali could sell more newspapers than the Boston Celtics in the mid 1960’s till near the end of the 1970’s.  Today Boxing is a second-tier sport, relegated to rarely mention on most sports network.  There are times that ESPN won’t even cover their boxing matches they broadcast, and they are probably the last cable network that televises boxing as most boxing is going the way of streaming and even Showtime last year said adios to boxing 트윗 덱 다운로드.

MMA has challenged boxing as the leading combat sports and for many fans, surpassed it. There is no doubt in this writer’s mind that MMA has done a better job of marketing its sports than boxing.  Buffalo Wild Wings in Cedar Rapids Iowa will feature  the UFC pay for view and when they do, they fill the bar/restaurant, and I can’t even remember the last time they ever did a boxing match PPV. 

Depending what data you use to judge popularity, there is no doubt there are data that shows that MMA is becoming more popular.  Most popular PPV event was Mayweather versus Pacquiao which drew nearly 5 million buys but that was in 2015 and while many boxing PPV appears to do was well as many MMA events, there are other ways to view the popularity of a sport in today’s world 올미다 다운로드.

Usyk “split decision” win over Fury – becomes Undisputed Champion

By Tom Donelson (BWAA) Member Boxing Writers Association of America

Tyson Fury faced off Oleksandr Usyk in a battle of undefeated fighters for the Heavyweight championship of the world.  Fury has proven to be a unique fighter, a big fighter who could box and punch and Usyk is a two division champion, former cruiserweight champions before he took the Heavyweight title when he defeated Anthony Joshua and Fury high point as a fighter was his trilogy with Wilder in which he survived a two knockdown to get a draw in their first fight and then winning the next two with stoppage.  The third fight of their trilogy was a brutal fight in which both men hit the canvas. 

The question that remains is what Fury or Usyk we will see 다운로드. In his last fight, Fury barely escaped with a split decision over Francis Ngannou in Ngannou’s first boxing match after a great career in the MMA. Usyk won in a knockdown over the Daniel Dubois but before that final stoppage, he went down with a body shot deemed a low blow.   Usyk came in this fight as the smaller fighter and Fury had a higher knockout percentage 도서 pdf 다운로드. If one was a betting person, Fury was more likely to knock out Usyk than the reversed.    If Fury, who defeated Wilder in their last two fights, Fury would win or so I thought..  If the Fury that showed up in Ngannou’s fight then Usyk can win by decision, but I be honest, Fury came into shape and was lighter than his fight with Ngannou.  . 

In reviewing data before the fight, Usyk used his jab 54% during his fights, whereas Fury throws his power shots 56% 다운로드. The average Heavyweight throw 44 punches per round and Fury is close to the average with 44.8  average punches whereas Usyk threw nearly 50 punches per round Download the full hymn. Both men came into this fight with a reputation of being good defensively as Fury only allowed 6 punches to be connected against and Opponents only landed 19 percent against Usyk 다운로드.

The opening round was close as Usyk landed lefts to the body, Fury jabbing and keeping distance.  Fury landed 9 punches while throwing 37 punches while Usyk landed 8 of 18 so Usyk was more accurate, close round I gave it Usyk, but others gave it to Fury.

In the second round, Usyk landed overhand left to start round with body shots, he looks aggressive whereas Fury is jabbing.  Fury landed a right to the body, but Usyk landed body shots.  The last seconds of the round say a Usyk combo landed but Fury landed an upper cut to the body. Usyk answered with body shots and Fury ends the round with an upper cut.  I had the round for Usyk, 20-18.  According to CompuBox, Usyk landed 50 percent of his power shots as he landed 14 power shots.

Usyk opened the third with body shots, but Fury pivoted with a nice right.  Usyk using head movement trying to avoid Fury’s jabs, but Fury landed solid jabs.  Usyk went to the body, to tire the bigger Fury as the round ended.  Again, another close round as Fury avoided being cornered but Usyk is not letting Fury circle without pressuring him.  Fury also landed his combinations.  I had the round for Usyk and had  Usyk up 30-27.   The round was close and could have gone for Fury.

Fury landed body shots and more active in the fourth round as Usyk looked for a combination but missed with a straight left.  Usyk landed a nice lead left and Fury nails with an upper cut that has Usyk off balance Fury landed body shots and forced Usyk to cover up.  Usyk closed the distance but got nailed from the long upper cut.  Fury did a little clowning, but Usyk kept his cool. Fury won this round and had it 39-37 for Usyk.

Fury caught Usyk with a jab as the fifth round opened and Usyk looked to find angles to land his right hook. Fury landed a good right and left hook to the body and Fury pressured Usyk.  Usyk 48-47 but this is close bout so the score could be reversed.

The sixth round began with Usyk back to pressure tactic and Fury landed four punch combinations and then tied up his opponent.  Fury takes the round and scores the fight 57-57 even as we go into the second half. Fury appeared to be prepared to impose his will on the smaller Usyk. Fury landed 20 punches in the sixth round and had a 58-35 edge in landed punches from the fourth to the sixth round.

The date was May 24, 1974 when Bobby “Schoolboy”  Chacon and Danny “Little Red” Lopez met in the ring for a long awaited and most anticipated bout between two Southern California rising stars. I was there that night ringside and sitting next to me was HBO Real Sports host Bryant Gumbel – who at that time was a sportscaster for KNBC channel 4 in Los Angeles 다운로드.

Vasiliy Lomachenko faced Australian George Kambosos, Jr 삼성 사이드 싱크 다운로드. for the IBF lightweight title, and this promised to be an interesting fight as both fighters were looking not just for a title but also a loss could hurt the loser if not end his career as championship contenders 유령신부 다운로드.

Lomachenko won the first two rounds as Lomachenko landed Kambosos 18 punches to 5 and controlled the ring and I had Lomachenko ahead 20-18.  In the third round Kambosos landed 8 punches for his best round, but his opponent landed 14 punches and as ESPN announcers Tim Bradley noted as the fourth round progressed, Lomachenko has downloaded his opponent weakness and he simply avoided Kambosos punches while accurately landing 21 punches to only one for Kambosos and after the round, it was 40 to 36 for Lomachenko who is looking as sharp as I seen in a while 더존 스마트a 다운로드.

The fifth round was the same as the other rounds as Lomachenko simply landed at will and Kambosos couldn’t even land a punch. Lomachenko landed 41 punches and Kambosos only three in the fourth and fifth round 영화 거인 다운로드.

Naoya Inoue faced Luis Nery and there was feeling that this would be another easy Inoue win and the only question was when he would stop Nery.   In the opening moments in the first round, Inoue unleashed a left hook and as he dropped his right hand, Nery nailed Inoue with a counter left hook.   Down goes Inoue and this was the first time he was ever dropped in his professional career 다운로드.    Inoue landed on all fours and quickly got up after listening to the referee count from one knee.  He looked dumbfounded and surprised being on the canvas as  44,000 fans looked on, wondering what just happened 다운로드. For them, the mighty Inoue hit the canvas

Inoue took over the second round as he dropped Nery with a vicious left hook.  He floored Nery twice more, including a nasty Inoue nasty hook that sent Nery down in round 5 다운로드.

By Tom Donelson / Member Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA) and much respected contributor to www.dmboxing.com since 2008

Jamie Munguia faced his toughest fight in his 44th fight against one of the best fighters of this generation, Canelo Alvarez and Munguia would be part of an Alvarez tradition of the Cinco de Mayo weekend where Alvarez was 9-1 with his only loss to undefeated light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol.  This was the first time two Mexican fighters fought for an undisputed championship fight 다운로드. And this was the first super Middleweight championship bout featuring two Mexican born fighters and in fact this was the first world title bout above 160 pounds featuring two Mexican fighters.  So, this weekend history was being made odbc.

Ryan Garcia “Upset Win” Over Devin Haney

Ryan Garcia took on Devin Haney for Haney’s 140  pound title and Garcia is one of those heavily promoted fighters who so far proved to be a a good fighter but not an elite fighter that promoters hope for 다운로드. Garcia first attempt at elite status was his fight against Gervonta Davis who stopped him in the seventh round at the catch weight of 136 pounds.. 

Haney is a rather good fighter who has shown he is a champion, as he took the lightweight title against George Kambosas in Kambosas back yard Australia.  Haney not only traveled halfway round the world once to win the title but twice to defend the title.  He defeated Kambosas even easier the second time.  He won a close bout against Lomachenko and Lomachenko has been one of the best lightweights for the past decade. 

Haney entry into the junior welterweight saw him easily beat the once defeated Regis Prograsis including a third-round knockdown.  Haney proved himself the real thing at 140 pounds as he has now found and defeated championship caliber fighters.  Garcias last victory was a stoppage of Oscar Jurado, and now he was facing an important fight 다운로드.

Garcia is one of those fighters who is loud and self-promoter, effectively using social media promoting himself and the sport.  He is definitely the A side of this fight despite not being the champion but beating Haney was not going to  be easy, who can match Garcia in boxing skills 팔라 독 정식판 무료 다운로드. On paper, Garcia is the stronger fighter with the higher knock out ratio but then Haney has fought quality opponents over his last four fights under championship pressure.  For Garcia, this fight is about justifying the publicity and showing he is the real thing. 

The weight in provided the first drama, when Garcia showed up over two pounds overweight and thus he automatically became ineligible for the title so a victory by Garcia merely vacates the title 무료 bgm 다운로드.
