Miranda vs Green: A Real Fight to Look Forward To

Miranda vs Green: A Real Fight to Look Forward To

This is a fight I cannot wait to see.  I think these are 2 of the sports
best talents.  No one is anxious to get into the ring with either of them as
they are 2 of the sports most avoided fighters.

Miranda is an incredible physical specimen.  His physical ability is on the
level of a Jones Jr or young Tyson.  I dont think he is a bad boxer either,
its just that he is so physically *** over his opponents.  His wingspan
is ridiculous and I dont think his punching power is in question.  He has
fought as high as 170lbs but nearly all of his fights have taken place at
middleweight.

Green is no slouch either when it comes to athleticism, he just doesnt rely
on it as much as Miranda.  He is an excellent boxer with speed and power.
Green started his career at light heavyweight and over half of his fights
were fought at that weight, he has even fought over that limit.  This fight
will be the lowest weight I ever recall him fighting at.

They both are ultra confident, Miranda believes he can knock everyone out,
and I love that attitude.  Green believes he has too much skill for anyone
who steps in the ring with him.  He takes pride in his fundamental tools.
Both guys can counterpunch, and I have a feeling that early in the bout they
will stand toe to toe and some point.  They both believe in their power.
This may be a better version of Brewer vs Echols.  It is hard to pick an
outcome in this fight except it is likely to end in a KO.

I give Green the slight edge because he can really box when he wants to, and
that is what he will want to do in this fight.  It could come down to one
guy underestimating what the other can do.

This is more a matchup of chins and conditioning than anything else. I'm
looking for bombs away from start to finish, no "feeling out." Yep, can't
wait!

It should be exciting for as long as it lasts.  Miranda had problems
with Eastman and was even stunned right before he knocked him out, and
he lost to Abraham.

Green should be able to give him the types of problems that Eastman
did only with more power behind his punches.  With that said, there's
just something about Green that reminds me of Michael Grant.  He
looked good after checking the chin of the chin checker, but since has
seemed to take a few steps back.  He's lucky that Emmit Linton didn't
have any power.

It's Miranda's aggression against Green's better technique.  I am
inclined to go with Green.  He's bigger than Miranda, and if he can
avoid the big punch can expose him as a strong one-dimensional fighter.

Michael Grant? WOW.

Linton is a very tough and underrated veteran, although Green didnt look
great, I think he learned more in that fight than any other

that may be true, but for some reason Miranda just reminds me of Roy Jones
being that he is sooooooo physically gifted and I think that is all he
relies on
