  • This will be a war for as long as it lasts. Babic could make cruiserweight I think, but I think he takes this one and glad to see Bakole FINALLY back out.

    • Lucie, so Babic is even too light for Bridgerweight yes. Babic’s heart is bigger than his ability, going to be interesting while it lasts. From what a person hears he has had a very good training camp.

      • I think bridgerweight limit is 226 and he’s 211 here, was 208 last fight and he’s been as low as 199. I don’t know how interested he is in cutting weight, but it doesn’t appear he’d have much to cut, actually. I do expect him to win this fight, but as you said Henry, his heart is bigger than his ability, so I’m not expecting a very long reign for him. If Rivas comes back and is healthy, I think he beats whoever wins this one.

    • Bakole is still puzzling to me. He can look like he is the biggest threat in the hw division, but then I keep wondering why did he not fight against Hunter like he fights nowadays?

      • You’re right about that. I think we may look back and say that the Hunter fight represented Hunter at his absolute best and Bakole at his absolute worst, at least while either was anywhere near their prime.

  • Re Bakole, is there a weight that makes a definite difference like Joyce and also Fury, they must not weigh in the 250’s, they are just stronger and better in the 270’s+? And the opposite with Wilder, he must again be lighter, at the 215’s?

  • Rozanski looks flabby in the photo so I pick Babic by quick KO. Rozanski’s last fight was a first rd KO of Spilka but that was two years ago. He used to fight at 245!
