    A decent fight.

    Chisora's done at the top level, but he's tough and still a solid gatekeeper. It seems like a perfect choice to Usyk.

    - And Usyk had better not overlook Dellboy. This 'aint CW.

      --- Dell still a top ten in boxrec a known commodity.

      Usyk used to be known as a top p4per, but all these injuries make him unknown. Top test for him.

        Good point.

        And at HW, Usyk will have no choice but to throw more hard punches. That could exacerbate any physical weaknesses in his body.

          Decent step in the direct for progress in the division but lets not pretend Chis is anything like a "live" opponent here. Beaten at every minor step up beyond UK/Euro level and Usyk should have no problems!

            Good fight this. You never know what Chisora turns up, which keeps the opponent on alert.
            A strong Heavyweight for Usyk to test himself against. Usyk is the superior talent but that doesn't always win the fight. I'm picking the Ukrainian but be interesting to see how it pans out.

              --- Baseball stat guru Bill James been speculating on the threat of coronavirus as to when baseball will start their postponed season.

              He speculates given the timelines for previous flu pandemics to peak that May is that month.

              My grocer had a run on essential items yesterday that left shelves bare. If grocers have to shut down, we'll all be dependent on military rationing. Lots of media scare mongering going on and folks get unpredictably dangerous when that happens.

                  What major cards have been cancelled so far?

                  I would think that, once testing is widely available (despite the Trump administrations catastrophic failure) they could surely also have boxing without crowds. It's only 3-4 men on each side. PPV is in place, anyway.
                  It would be just like Douglass vs Tyson! lol...

                  Heck, they could even add-in fake audience noise.

                        From what I can see, the only boxing cards that have so far been postponed were a few scheduled for March. (Though I'm sure more will follow.)

                        As of March 11th, Artur Beterbiev vs Fanlong Meng was supposedly still on, as was Stevenson-Marriaga=, though THAT bout has now been postponed.

                        It's obviously a pretty fluid situation, but there has been no "blamket" cancellation of the sport.
                        - There isn't any organization that could do that, anyway.
