  • *****SPOILER March Heavyweight Madness

    --- Modern March Madness is, of course, the frenzy over the NCAA basketball tourney eliminators that determine the #1 collegiate team for the year, bigger than the Super Bowl because of the month long timespan.

    Kind of a case study in how basketball has grown during boxings decline where there are no big boxing events planned...however!!!

    Barclays, March 7 we have a bruising encounter of 8 fringe contender hvys including one legit top 10.

    Be a fun night for fights for sure!

    Looks like four set-up / probable blowouts to me.

    But the 2 HW bouts with the young prospects looks very interesting. (Feels like the old Friday Night / Tuesday Night Fights.)

    Is this all on the main card?

    --------------

    BTW: : Weird to have a SLW bout in the same ring. That's gonna' be HUGE for those little guys. Well, I guess that just favors Ochoa even more. He should have a very fun night.

      --- Noteworthy is BigBaby absence in his hometown after his disgrace vs Josh.

      Fat Adam is his good friend and the headliner.

        I'm no fan of "Adam the defenseless", although I do enjoy his spurts of high output. Still, he's ALL wrong for Helenius:
        Kownacki is a fast starter, and Helenius is a painfully SLOW starter. Kownacki likes to drive forward, throwing a ton on the inside, and Helenius absolutely sucks at backing up.
        Helenius can really bang, if he manages to land a clean punch, but Kownacki won't stay at range and Kownacki has a granite chin.

        Expect a fat man KO within the first 2-3 rounds.

          --- Other than it may take 4-5 rds, I can't argue with that result.

            I think it will go 8 tops. Maybe it will be over in 5 or 6.

              --- Kov 265 and Helenius 239.

              Japan canceled incoming flights and Austin South by Southwest international massive showcase cancelled by the corona virus spooking stock markets and international travel.

              Will Barclays survive this weekend?

                    I dunno.

                    All the main fights are listed on Boxrec as "P". Never saw that before, but I'm thinking that means "postponed."

                    Can't find any other info online just yet.

                        --- Two favored undefeated hvys got flattened including headliner Kownacki, so I call that a good night of and for boxing.

                        Seems fighters turning down substantial Josh offer are hexing themselves with Furys luck of the Irish circling the drain of borrowed time. Poor Kownacki gonna rue the day he turned down $5 Mil. Gonna be a hard field to plow back to offers like that.

                          Thins out the heavyweight divison even more somewhat now. Pretty big upset. Loved how it silenced the crowd and they exited in droves!

                          ............Dubois/Joyce/Yoka/Ajagba (prospects touching this upper level)
                          .......
                          .......

                            No worse than Deoncey turning down Sperm's $8m to fight AJ, for a rematch with Stiverne for 2m.
