    This is my most anticipated fight scheduled right now.

    I don't know who's going to win but it should be a great fight.

    I know most people will pick beterbiev to be ko'd fast because he's too crude. but Gvosydk isn't really perfect either. this has a good chance to be a let down.

    but I also see a little bit of Lucian Bute in Gvosdyk.

    Beterbiev should be able to walk through someone's punches and KO them with his own at least one more time. Not sure how many wars he'll succeed with after this one, but Gvozdyk wont be the guy who stops the beast.

    Pick’em fight. I think Gvodzyk can handle the agression, but I wouldn’t bet on it.

    Hopefully it's a bit more competitive and exciting than Gvozdyk's last fight lol

    Beterbiev is a monster but Gvozdyk is the more technical guy. I would lean Gvozdyk, b/c Beterbiev is such a nut with his aggression, and Gvozdyk can punch a bit in his own right.

    I'd assume Gvozdyk can slow it down and box a bit, but Beterbiev is a huge puncher obv and he won't let Gvozdyk just stand there and make things boring. Slightly lean Gvozdyk, but not by much.

    This almost makes up for Taylor vs prograis falling through. Would probably pick berterbiev?

    Pick em for me as well

    Only thing is Beterbiev doesnt seem to adapt or carry plan B in his fights

    This reminds so much of Usyk vs Gassiev, the thiught of them fighting was huge then it turned out to be an ok but not much action fight.

    you thought there wasn't much action in that fight? i loved it.

    as for gvozdyk beterbiev, i can't wait. leaning towards gvozdyk, but i don't envy him at all. fighting beterbiev must suck.

    It was ok, other than Usyk’s crazy volume and jabs there wasnt much excitement after the first half, Gassiev couldnt figure out Usyks jab and Usyk did the sane thing over and over.

    Beterbiev vs Gvozdk could look a lot like that fight.

    I think Bivol's defense would be too much for Beterbiev; Gvozdyk's can be lacking at times.

    I still pick Gvozdyk in a tough fight - probably a late finish.

    It'll be interesting to see how Beterbiev's stamina holds up. He's almost been a full 12 so I'll just count it as he's been the distance once while somehow still winning by ko b/c that's Beterbiev. He's trying to kill even w/ 30 secs left.

    But this could go long and Beterbiev's stamina is mostly untested. The furthest he's been in a fight other than that 12th rd ko was only 7 so it's not like he's going many rds in there.

    I'm not one to think somebody should purposely try to go rds to show they can in a fight, that's for camp, kill em if you can kill em as early as possible. But we also haven't seen him go long in a fight so it's still a bit of a ? unless you've seen him in training go 12 hard rds and all that. I'm not saying he can't but we haven't seen it.

    Gvozdyk not exactly racking up the rds himself but he's definitely more measured and has been far more rds than Beterbiev. On paper at least, you gotta give him the nod as far as stamina goes. But Beterbiev doesn't give a fuck and it doesn't matter if you're cardio's better when a monster chews you up in 2rds which is what Beterbiev will be trying to do. Fun fight.

    Hard to believe this is even gonna happen. My prediction is it falls through and gets cancelled

    this sums up beterbiev for me. he just doesn't give a fuck and beats the piss out of you. what you have doesn't really matter, the guy is built like a brick shithouse and fights like it, too. scary motherfucker.

    It will matter when the guy punching you hits about as hard and is a much better boxer.
