Mayorga-Forrest Rematch

Post by pabl » Thu, 22 May 2003 23:19:59


First of all, I think Mayorga is giving Forrest a rematch too quickly. I've
no idea why they're doing this after not even 6 months. Distant memories of
Duran-Leonard.

Personally, I expect Forrest to carefully box his way to a 12 round
decision, and not be suckered into swinging with Mayorga.

Nevertheless, I find it silly to hold the rematch this quickly, with neither
fighter getting a chance to shine against other opposition to build it up
more.

On the other hand, it prevents both of them from possibly going in the tank
against someone else and lessening the value of the rematch.

I'm looking forward to a fight like this because it promises to be a fight.
Not a, "He's got a Hail Mary chance." like Johnson does against Lewis or
some circus act with RJJ against some never has been hw.

The fight has marquee value now. It sure wouldn't if either of them lost
tuning up.

Forrest can certainly do the usual Forrest routine (i.e. jab, tie his opponent
up, throw an occasional right hand, repeat).  But...if Forrest decides to,
again, try and be an exciting fighter, Mayorga will probably be depositing
Forrest on the canvas, as he did before.

The boring Forrest doesn't guarantee a win, but its probably his only chance to
win.

As did Bowe vs. Lewis.  Could have been a mega-fight.  Lewis gets one punch KOd
by a journyman and Bowe loses the rematch to Holyfield.  Dollar value of the
fight fell harder than Enron stock.

Forrest will KO him this time...........after this fight, no one will
remember who Mayorga is or was.

If Forrest is smart he will do this. IMO even if Forrest has to weather the
storm for the first 3 or 4 rounds and barely win them or lost them competitivly
it would be a great idea just so as he makes it into the 5th, 6th, ect ect. The
farther down the stretch, the more it turns in favor of Forrest.

Forrest can't turn the fight into a wild west show. Forrest has to jab, move,
kill time essentially to establish himself for the later rounds. IMO, the jab
is the key to winning that fight.

It's probably now or never. Forrest probably can't focus on anything else and
Mayorga-- if you ask me-- would probably lose the title, or run the risk of
doing so, if he fought decent oppsition.

And I occasionally say some negative things about folks who post on rsb.  For
instance, you nearly always display the intellectual depth of a Wheat Thin
cracker.  But I'll try not to dwell on that point too much.
