  • tough guy, etc… but has Joey Dawejko ever been fit and in top shape and condition to be his very best?
    just curious if he has..

    • I don’t think so. He was 264 for this fight according to boxrec, that’s 9lbs more than his previous career high. If he REALLY wanted to, Joey could probably make bridgerweight at 224.

  • Some of the greatest fighters in history were bridgerweights.
    Wonderful division and very rich in history.

    • As long as fans buy it the organizations will continue to add meaningless divisions for the sole purpose of creating more diluted champions and sanctioning fees. No wonder the average sports fan has lost interest.

    • Actually, looking at the boxrec HW rankings, with the exception of probably Fury, every fighter in the top 10 could probably make the 224 weight limit with our current day before weigh ins. Even a guy like Joshua who is fit and trim at 240 would only need to dry out 16 pounds, which isn’t that uncommon for some welterweights.

      Of course, I would rather not have any fighter going through dehydration and then re-hydrating, but that’s how bowing works now.

  • I’d love to see JD in perfextly fit condition once, he would give a hard time to a number of ranked HW. He should go through an Andy Ruiz kind on process but if he does I am positive he would climb the rank as he is still young for an HW and has skills.

    • Would be interesting to see if JD could still take the punishment if he were to get down to, say, 210-220. Not exactly the same situation, but remember, Chris Byrd was able to take a punch pretty well at Heavyweight, but in his fight at Lightheavy he was rocked every time Sean George touched him it seemed. Still would like to see Joey at least give it a whirl…

  • isnt Dawejko supposedly the sparring partner that was rumored to have koed anthony joshua in sparring before his first figh with ruiz?
