  • Kudryashov looked like a monster coming up, but after that first loss, the air of invincibility was gone.

    • Yes I remember. He seems to be such a nice bloke too. Down to earth. I like him.

      Early I found he was rather easy to target, a bit slow and didn’t pressure enough when he moved forward. Enough to be exposed by top 10.

      He had such potential to be a champ and keep the belt for a while. But I think time is running out for Kudryashov as a boxer. Too late to re-learn and learn new.

  • Kudryashov looked different in this fight. More defensive. Mind you he put it on Romanov in the last round. Decent intriguing fight.

  • Romanov is the guy that starched wilder in the amateurs with headgear on.

    • But he’s been a pro for five years and hasn’t done too much, tho he’s 16-0 with 11 KO’s.

    • I don’t like the name they attached to it.

      The entire boxing weight category system in grotesque and antiquated and should be totally revamped.

      • Revamped by going back to the eight weight classes that were successfully used for years. Best had to fight the best instead of moving to another weight class two pounds different. One organization with one champion in each division could make boxing a mainstream sport again-most sports fans have no idea or care who these “champions” are since almost every fighter holds some kind of meaningless title. Probably never happen with the corrupt organizations and their sanctioning fees until fighters refuse to pay them and put them out of business.

  • Im excited about this division. It gives a chance to some of the most elite atheletes that are boxers. Gassiev, Hunter, Glowacki, Kabael, and even the Iron Camel Firat Arslan. that would be something…
