I'm going to order this one. Most interesting fight of the year to me...also isn't Lumachenko making his pro debut? By all accounts, he's the real deal. 2 time Olympic gold medalist and fights with a pro style. I believe it's a 10 round fight against a good opponent which is unheard of for a pro debut.

Arum says if the fight does 350,000 buys it will be a big success. Probably true. This has been a solid promotion without a crazy amount of spending. It won't lose money like Floyd vs Guerrero but I think 300,000 buys is a more likely number.

Why is it when people talk about the Lewis-Klit fight that they usually fail to mention Lennox bludgeoned Klit's face so badly with his fists that Vit's eye was basically hanging out of his skull? If that fight would have continued, Klit's boxing career may have ended that night.

The fight actually probably went on a couple rounds too long. Lewis won via legitimate TKO/stoppage, yet people talk about it as if he lost.



^^^That was done with Lewis' fists... not a headbutt, like what will usually be the cause of such massive damage.

Well people usually think of cuts as accidental and not an intentional way to win a fight.

It makes a lot more sense than the comment he responded too. WTF? Its not intentional to beat the hell out of your opponents face as a way to beat him?

Yep. Bludgeoning a person's eye is no different than wearing out their body, yet people act as if eye damage is a convenience for the fighter who is actually applying the damage.
