    Because I honestly can't see it.

    If he tries to implement his pressure heavy style, he'll put himself right into the firing range of Romero's power and most likely get caught with a counter and slept..

    Costa's fight IQ is very questionable as well.
    I'm guessing Romero exploits the kid and puts him to sleep, as most people are thinking.

    If Costa pressures him and goes for the finish he'll probably get knocked out

    If he attacks Romero's fucked eye with jabs early and keep him at the end of his punches he has a good chance

    Just seeing those gifs instantly reminds me how epic that fight was.. but to answer the question, he won’t get it done hahaha. Talking a big game but I think he stands little to no chance.

    With that logic, how does Romero lose, ever? As you can see in those examples you gave, Whitaker did put himself in firing range of Romero's power, and did end up winning. Twice

    Same with Costa against Hall

    Not saying Costa is Whitaker, just pointing out the logical error there

    I'm still picking Romero btw

    Mike Tyson combo.
    Right hook body, left hook head.

    Pressure and body kicks. He just leaves himself too open and Hall was finding his head consistently. I think Romero will knock him out with a straight left.

    awesome clip.

    Tyson was so small at HW. Even Holyfield was bigger.

    Costa isn't Whittaker..
    Hall isn't Romero..

    It took everything (cardio, chin and a near perfect implementation of a game plan) for Whittaker to eke out a questionable decision in the second fight..

    He survived being stunned and near finished 3-4 times, fucking outrageous..

    If I were to pick Costa, I'd say he gets it done via punching Yoel very hard in the face. I'm picking the Cuban though

    He gets it done overwhelming romero until he taps or judges stop it
    He loses by getting tagged hard
    Ppl sleeping on Costa here. Imo he will win it and it wont look hard

    Ok so thats how Costa gets it done, I predict him being as durable as Whitaker and and just as good game plan

    Whitaker won the 2nd Romero fight like Italy won WW2.

    Costa is untested against elite fighters, and Romero is a top of the food chain middleweight.

    On the flip side, we are all waiting for Romero to look his age. It has to happen at some point, but we don't know when.

    If Romero is the same guy that fought Whittaker, he should put Costa away. If his athleticism is finally starting to slip, the 100% Natty Boi who likes to get filmed taking secret IV bags can do what he usually does and hurl big punches.
