    Гвоздик, конечно, выиграл, но не очень убедительно. Ему пока ещё явно не хватает мастерства.

    Interesting fight with the Nail more efective and thecnical, Jose Antonio Rivero Santana, Alicante, Spain.

    Can’t wait for gvodzyk vs beterbiev, I hope gvodzyk wins, if he keeps to his boxing doesn’t fight on the inside and get pulled into a slug fest he will beat beterbiev

    They are both excellent fighters, but Gvozdyk has a little better offense.

    That Frenchmen is very tough, if he would have had a power punch he would have been a force to be reckoned with.

    Lomachenko's father is a master trainer, many more wrinkles coming from Loma.

    Artur Beterbiev can beat Gvozdyk with in Two Rounds
    because he cuts everything and comes straight to the Point

      @Провинциал 777 You're both mentally deranged. Gvosdyk probably WANTS to fight Beterbiev, and Bivol so he can cement himself as an all time great. I have no doubts about that. UKRAINIAN POWER !!!!!

    I’m not drinking that nail coolaid. 5 week 4th choice replacement schooled him. A little more
    Power and the nail would have got hammered

    • PunchFor Pound

      He didn't get schooled. He did get hit too much. A little more power, and Gvozdyk would fight more defensively responsible, which he mostly did vs Stevenson. Or he just would have taken the shots anyway. Or they would have knocked him out.

      Who knows. No boxer is without flaws. Gvozdyk is one of the best in the game, even with his flaws. Maybe not quite the level of Usyk and Loma, we'll see as his career goes on whether he can reach and/or prove that level or not, but he's a bigger puncher, P4P, than either, and he's very skillful and pretty quick.

      @Jon Jon TL;DR version... Stevenson definitely did not cherry pick this guy thexvid.com/video/ePlU5ufpCZY/video.html thinking he would get an easy win.

    • PunchFor Pound

      @Jon Jon "Stevenson thought he would get a easy win probably"
      "Probably" means you don't know. Which is fine. Not everyone has time to keep up with all the bullshit in this corrupt sport these days. I can understand why you might think that, but what actually happened is the opposite. Gvozdyk tried to fight Stevenson for a couple years, but Stevenson wouldn't fight him, and Stevenson's adviser and/or his promoter used Stevenson's stablemate, Eleider Alvarez, to block the #1 contender position for the WBC belt. Only when Stevenson wouldn't fight Alvarez, either, did Alvarez decide to go fight Kovalev, someone actually willing to fight the best, which finally opened up the #1 spot for Gvozdyk to become Stevenson's mandatory and _force_ the fight because Stevenson and Haymon would never fight Gvozdyk willingly. Gvozdyk even said in the post fight press conference, before he knew about Stevenson's injury mind you, that he wanted to thank his lawyer for "forcing" Stevenson to sign the agreement to fight him.
      So no, it wasn't some cherry pick gone wrong. You have to understand Gvozdyk was like the best up and coming prospect/contender at 175 for years, and one of the biggest punchers. He had a few performances where he still looked great in many ways, but also kind of sloppy and average in other ways, but he also had performances where he knocked out guys like Mohammadi faster and more explosively even than peak Sergey Kovalev did. When you knock out guys worse than Kovalev did, you are going to be avoided. Kovalev was avoided. But at least with Kovalev, he eventually started drinking alcohol, stopped training between fights, etc etc, so he lost his gas tank, and you could eventually beat him without it even being that complicated if you could just survive the 4th round.
      Gvozdyk, he got 3 inch longer reach than Kovalev, he's a gym rat unlike Kovalev at that time, he doesn't drink at all, he's taller than Kovalev, he was a better amateur than Kovalev (robbed on his way to gold medal at the Olympics), he keeps his hands up at all times unlike Kovalev who drops his hands, which basically, long story short, is part of why Gvozdyk is better defensively than Kovalev most of the time, he's physically stronger than Kovalev and can't be pushed around on the inside like Kovalev, he's more skilled on the inside in general... Despite the Mohammedi knockout, I still don't think he punches _as_ hard as prime Kovalev, but really who does? He punches hard enough for Marcus Browne and Adonis Stevenson to have both ducked him for as long as possible, Stevenson with the WBC belt, and Browne before that for a title eliminator for the right to eventually face Stevenson.
      I mean, Gvozdyk hits harder than Eleider Alvarez, and Stevenson didn't want to fight him, so trust me he never would have fought Gvozdyk if it hadn't been mandated. He had to choose, fight Gvozdyk, or drop the WBC belt. Unlike what Al Haymon did with Peter Quillin, Stevenson chose to fight for his belt rather than give it up, and that's the only reason that fight was made. It nearly resulted in tragedy, but thankfully, Stevenson is making an amazing recovery. Turns out as sensational a KO puncher as he was in the ring, he is an even better fighter outside the ring.
