Some Fight I'd Like To See.....

Post by ^^c0dy » Sun, 02 Feb 2003 04:11:24


1. Roy Jones Jr. vs Mike Tyson- I would like to see this one because I
am curious to see how Jones reacts once he really gets hit.
My Prediction: Tyson KO1

2. David Tua vs Wladimir Klitchsko- I'm curious to see exactly how
deserving of a title shot Klit really is. Can he outbox Tua for 12
rounds? Can he KO Tua?
My Prediction: Wladimir Klitchsko UD

3. Kostya Tszyu vs Arturo Gatti- I think everybody wants to see this
one. I personally love watching both these guys. As long as it was a
clean, skillfull fight, I wouldn't be disappointed to see either man
win. This one might not last long.
My Prediction:  I'm gonna go with Arturo Gatti KO 7

4. Sharmba Mitchell vs Zab Judah- Neither one faired well against Tszyu,
but how would they do against each other?
My Prediction: Zab Judah KO 10

5. Kostya Tszyu vs Ricardo Mayorga- Depending on which weight they
fought at, this probably would make for an exciting fight. I'm not even
going to make a prediction.

6. Lennox Lewis vs Vitali Klitchsko- Many folks expect Vitali to be
competitive with the champ, but I don't. Although Vitali is bigger and
stronger than Lewis, I still believe that Lewis would win fairly easy
because of his superior boxing skills. I wouldn't be suprised to see
Vitali get scared and quit.
My Prediction: Lewis KO 8

7. Lennox Lewis vs Wladimir Klitchsko- Probably the biggest Heavyweight
fight out there right now. If Lewis does eventually take this fight, I
look for Wlad to dethrone Lewis and then Lewis retires.
My Prediction: Wladimir Klitschko KO 5

Anybody want to add their thoughts?

I think Mike would need a Ferrari to catch up with Jones long enough to KO
him in the first round.

Sounds about right.

Surely you mean Gatti would be KO'd in 7, right?

I'd like to see this one too. Maybe set  Tszyu up in a rematch with the
winner.

Right. I think if Tszyu moved up in weight the fight swings toward Mayorga,
but if Mayorga fights at 140, it belongs to Tszyu.

I think either of the Klitshko boys wins UD.

This would be a terrific fight--Tszyu would need at least one fight at 147
before Mayorga, of course. This is one I would not begrudge the going PPV
rate to see.

Yeah, looks like a great fight on paper. Judging by Tszyu's recent approach
to fights, I'd say he fights this one like Forrest should have. However,
when Mayorga connects, and he will, it'll be interesting to see if Tszyu
wants to trade with him.

         That would really seem like a circus sideshow.  It would be crazy to
see Jones have to try to fight Tyson off of him and keep moving all around the
ring.  It would look like a bull and a matadore for a minute or two.
          I think Tyson would knock Roy Jones right the f*ck out.  

           I don't believe this fight will ever be seriously discussed.

>2. David Tua vs Wladimir Klitchsko-

            I'd like to see it.  I like to watch Tua fight.  I think this would
be a good matchup.  Hopefully, Tua learned something from his fight with Lewis,
or else the bigger Wlad might badly outbox him.  Tua test chins, though, and he
certainly has one punch clocking power.

            I'd probably rather see Tua fight Vitali.  I think Tua would chop
him down.

Quote:

            I remember about a year ago when this match was being discussed
thinking that Gatti was nearly finished and that Tszyu would probably destroy
him.
            I still think that ending is very likely, despite KT's long lay
offs and Gatti's recent good-looking win over Irish Micky Ward.  
           If Gatti does indeed *** match with Ward before he faces Kostya,
look for Kostya to have a field day with Gatti.  
           It would be must see TV.

         Much better yet, Lewis vs. Wlad Klit.  Much more attractive matchup,
for me.
         I think Lennox is starting to push the cards a little bit, being in
his 38th year.  I wish him the best.  I'd like to see him finish in style.
We'll see what happens.

               Enjoy the fights!

I'd actually be more interested to see if Wlad loads up himself to see if he
can KO Tua. Personally I think he'd be the only heavyweight around at the
moment capable of the feat, and you can't get much more of a big coming out
party combined with a one up on Lewis then that.

       Ohhh...  I don't think that would be smart, at least not until Tua has
been hurt.  I've never seen Tua hurt.  
        I would love to see them slug it out.  Could become a Foreman-Lyle!  

         I think Tua's going to have some good fights over the next couple of
years. There are some good matchups out there for him.  I think Tua would beat
Holyfield, Tyson, Ruiz, maybe Vitali Klit...  But Tua had better make his move
for the top again, soon.  
         Why isn't he screaming for Ruiz?  Holding that belt would give him
some entre towards Lewis, or at least Byrd.  Tua would have to prove himself
against Byrd.  I definitely rate Byrd above Tua,  just as David and Goliath.

           Enjoy the fights!

I have no idea. Hell, if anyone else other than Tua had knocked out one of
the heavyweight titlists in 19 seconds, you'd think they would be clawing
their frikkin eyes out to do it again and take the gold.

Incidentally, if Tua was calling Ruiz's name, I think you'd find Ruiz hiding
under a rock somewhere real quick.

          Tua seems like such a nice guy, but he should be screaming for
opponents at the end of each victory.  He should scream for Tyson, Holyfield,
Ruiz, the Klitschkos, Rahman, whomever.  Oh yeah, and Byrd!  ;-)
          But he's pretty cool in the ring, as well as out of the ring.  That's
part of why I think a prime Foreman would go in and destroy Tua in a slugfest.
Just as he would have destroyed a bigger Frazier.

           Wonder if Ibeabuchi will ever return?  He'll be a crazed madman, if
he does.  Probably take some big beatings...

Lewis wouldnt lose to VLAD
When Vlad fights a real contender and he has not yet then you will see
