just rewatched the struve - hunt fight, and suddenly i'm feeling pretty grim about hunt going at it with junior. like i was originally before all the articles and hunt fans kind of lifted me up the past couple weeks.

i'm back to seeing JDS pick apart hunt's defense and lay a beating on him when the gas tank drains and the body shots start to add up. hunt is tricky and has speed in small bursts, but junior just seems way too technical of a boxer to make the kind of mistake that's needed. also, the 6inch size advantage, better speed and stamina give very few paths to victory for marko, it seems to me.

i think hunt's gonna try his leaping shots as usual and junior's just not going to be there to receive them. all it takes is one among HW's, but barring that, this could be another JDS - carwin.

I think the people giving Hunt a shot are only factoring his power and his chin. Hunt is hard to take out unless you hit like truck Melvin Manhoef. Hunt doesnt really have much of a chance though.

This entire card is stacked though, a bit too much of the one sided match ups, but it will make for some impressive and entertaining showings.

I thought so at first but Smith was wobbly as hell afterwards. Also he took a shitload of damage.

I really wish some of that half-point scoring system talk from a while ago gained steam. I feel like those last couple fights could have benefited from it.
