  • I wonder who is doing the matchmaking for these Mathchroom/DAZN cards. I haven’t seen one decent undercard fight all year. Not even one. Ridiculous guys!

  • One thing is for sure….Hughie is no Tyson Fury (vice versa). Two complete different fighters.

  • Okolie has some seriously positive physical attributes, but he’s like the perfect guy to fight under the Kronk style. He often loads up and gives up his height when jabbing or coming forward, and he wastes a lot of movement. Steward would take guys like that, settle them down and get them to relax, persistently and almost stubbornly stay at range, and be so economical with punches/movement. Sometimes makes for a boring fight, but for a guy his size, it’s often a dominating one.

  • Okolie looks good so far. I never saw a boxer “short circuit” as they put it sever times.. I’m not sure that guy is suited for boxing.
