KubratPulev to upset Anthony Joshua – Bob



By Bombo Ponciano \’John\’ Melo Jr -November 6, 2020 | 10:14 AM

After being out for a year after avenging his first professional defeat against Andy Ruiz Jr., current unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is set to face the challenger KubratPulev on December 12.

Pulev is the IBF mandatory challenger and legendary promoter Bob Arum chooses him to upset the British champion.

The Top Rank Promotions head explained that Joshua was beaten by Ruiz, who is not a heavy hitter. It can clearly remember that Joshua was shocked, so was the boxing world.

During their rematch, Joshua fought safely by keeping his distance from the smaller Ruiz. He was running around the ring until the last bell rang.

It made Arum’s prediction that Joshua is still vulnerable, especially against Pulev, who has shown his power to knock out his opponent.

“So I think Joshua is still vulnerable, and Pulev is a real tough, rugged heavyweight,” he said.

Joshua’s loss means a step farther from the possible undisputed heavyweight showdown against fellow British boxer Tyson Fury.

While a victory could lead to both camps, finalizing the most significant British fight in history.

Fury is also scheduled to fight in December; however, his opponent has yet to be named.

Joshua currently has 23 wins with 21 knockouts and one defeat, while Pulev has 28 wins with 14 knockouts and one defeat.

In terms of age, Joshua is way younger at 31, Pulev is already 39 years old.

Arum said that Pulev could upset Joshua despite the age gap.

Age will play a significant role in their fight. The 39-year old heavyweight would have a hard time if the fight lasted until the 12th round.

He might not last until the last round, especially against Joshua, who can tire him out.

Joshua still has the height advantage as he stands at 6 feet and 6 inches. Pulev is two inches shorter.

With the statistics being laid out, does Arum made a wise prediction about the Joshua-Pulev fight?

Despite losing the case, Pacquiao is confident that the decision can still be shifted to his camp’s favor.

Conor McGregor who is also under the PSM tweeted that Pacquiao should not let it happen again.

‘Manny owes 8 in all. 5.1 he owes and then 2.1 in legal costs. Legal fees are heavy but that’s what we do. Heavy weight operations,’ the Irishman said on a now deleted separate tweet.

Tank Davis Mimics Mike Tyson to defeat Ryan Garcia



Tank Davis Mimics Mike Tyson to defeat Ryan Garcia

After a devastating 7th round KO, Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis fans saw a Mike Tyson blows Ryan Garcia with a twist in T Mobile Arena, April 22.

“Tank is very comfortable fighting taller people because when he fights he catapults himself, and pushes himself in the air, so it makes it very difficult to stop his attack cause it’s very awkward when you’re in the air, normally you have no power. But, the way which he catapults himself, it’s almost like a gun being fired. He flies right into you with every ounce of power.” Tyson said in an interview.

Meanwhile, a fan said “What the commentators didn’t mention is that this was a Mike Tyson style body blow which was generated from tank being in that crouched position, the upward motion generated much more from the legs and hips, plus being accurate and well timed, well played from tank.”

Davis got 58 total score from the judges while Garcia got 55. Tank Davis dominated Garcia in almost all rounds except round 1 and 6.

Boxing fans noticed the perfect timing and patience of Davis on the 7th round as he landed a liver blow that led Ryan Garcia to kneel down with pain.

According to the Way of Martial Arts, just as a shot to the chest area can leave you without air for a while or a dangerous shot to the head could render you unconscious, a liver shot can be just as painful and just as dangerous.

It can be recalled that Tank Davis has been compared to Mike Tyson due to their common styles. Although, Mike rejects that similarity except with Tanks Police issues.
