  • Ok guess not.. It looked like in round 4 and 5 gamboa was throwing explosive spirts that were effective.. Then he faded out.

  • With Chairman Biden as president Zhilei Zhang will be heavyweight unified champ in no time!

    • So true! The FIX will be in! Ha ha But no chance. Beijing Biden and his democrat minions frauded the election big time! Trump will be victorious in the end, which might lead many democrats to prison!

  • Hrgovic really needs a strong jab to go with his strong right hand. He just paws with that jab and doesn’t really use it as a weapon. His trainers need to tie his right hand down and let him spar with just his left hand in play. That would teach him to do a better job with his left hand.

    He’s tall, busy, throws a lot of punches, and has a good straight right hand. Unfortunately, he’s not very mobile and is not particularly fast. A good jab would make him much more formidable.

    I’d like to see him against Pulev. Pulev just doesn’t throw a lot of punches, so Hrgovic can outwork him. An opponent like Booker just doesn’t tell us anything about his ability to fight against the top fighters. It did showcase his deficiencies, which may cost him against a better opponent.

    • Agree. In earlier fights he actually was a more balanced two handed fighter. He looked better then. Not sure why he has gone so right hand happy.

  • Zhilei Zhang is big & strong and disciplined but at 37 is likely to get even slower. George Foreman was the only great HW who could dominate with barely any foot speed in his 40s and Zhang is no George Foreman. Hrgovic would get a much needed challenge before KO of Zhang. Hrgovic is scary in the ring but very calm outside the ring.
