    Default Terence Crawford vs. Julius Indongo ESPN

    Looks like these fights are basically agreed, thoughts?

    Crazy that they are putting them on ESPN. Good for them though. It's always great to have boxing on non premium networks.

    I think both have clear winners but I have no problem with either fight.

    I'm pumped for Crawford vs Indongu. I'm curious if Crawford stays at 140 looking towards Mikey or if he moves on to 147 if he wins. Whatever the outcome it is the right fight by Crawford, again. And right fight by Indongu, again.

    Loma vs Marriaga makes no sense to me. Fighting a 126 fighter doesn't prepare Loma for going to 135. You all know which fighter I think he should fight if he was going to choose a smaller fighter. Hard to figure out what direction Loma is going. Next fight he needs a better opponent. This is what happens when you start with the date and work your way backwards though. I said that a while back, it's almost as if I'm psychic. Or I pay attention to trends, naw, probably psychic.

    Arum just took his crinkly soiled dollar bill flipping middle finger and firmly placed it between the eyes of hbo. Hell is about to freeze over..but good for him! And better for us. I could not ever envision these two p4p top tiers ever main eventing ESPN. Crawford v Indongo is very solid but yet again...MOVE UP already. I get it though, great unification. One thing I'll say if Crawford is almost showing a casualness to 'excepting' punches now and letting guys swing for the fences. He should not do that anymore. Loma has a great stage but is beginning to spin his wheels. Marriaga solid enough but does not belong in the ring with him. Now Beltran vs Vasquez should be a war. Quite the resurgence by Beltran as of late.

    I watched about 5 Marriaga fights today. And he is solid. But a lot of what he brings is in his fantastic conditioning. Will he have that with 35 or 36 days to get ready? Was he already getting ready for a fight? He was better than I expected but he was rather widely beaten in his losses.

    I wonder how much ESPN are paying/what the purses are.

    And definitely Lomachenko's opponent makes no sense and is probably down to the decreased budget to do this promotion. I think if this was a few years ago and HBO still had the big boxing budget then this would have been on HBO and Lomachenko's opponent would have been much better.

    Well. HBO had an offer ready for Loma/Salido. Salido wanted a later date. They were offering 720,000 to Salido so it had to be a good offer from HBO. I want to complain that the Rigo fight wasn't made but I can't really because it seems quite obvious Bob had this whole ESPN thing lined up all along. Push for a Salido fight when you know he can't fight, then blame Salido and take the Marriaga fight on ESPN. Announced same day as Crawford/Indongu the week of Pac/Horn. Rather obviously orchestrated.

    Marriaga is an excellent opponent. It's a testament to Loma that he's so ridiculously good that a proven top level whacker is seen as a "gimme" for a geezer that hasn't even had 10 fights.

    See Dillian Whyte has been added to the card and is trying to call out Wilder calling him "an embarrassment to heavyweight boxing"


    Dillian Whyte has described Deontay Wilder as an "embarrassment to heavyweight boxing" after the WBC champion rejected a fight offer.
    "The Brixton man is hoping to secure a world title fight this year, but Wilder posted an expletive-laden response on social media after promoter Eddie Hearn put forward a deal for a WBC title defence against Whyte.
    Four victories have lifted Whyte up the rankings since his first defeat to Anthony Joshua and the 29-year-old believes he must become a mandatory challenger to force a fight with one of the champions...."

    It's not often we get a unified champ so I'm all for this fight. Indongu backing himself fight after fight. Marriaga took my boy Valdez to the line in a fight much closer than the cards showed.

    Indongu outclassed Ricky Burns so I will be interested in how Crawford handles him.

    Crawford outclassed Burns as well, and has moved on a lot since then. Indongu is a good opponent, but I honestly believe Crawford is right up there in the top 5 fighters in the World. Same goes for Loma v Marriaga. both high quality matchups though.

    You speak odds and betting...purely for entertainment purposes of course ...better than anyone I've seen, they've listed Loma as a 100-1 favorite now. Sound reasonable or are they blinded by the light. Seems astonishing considering Marriaga just took young Valdez to the brink.
