    Covid won't kill you if you're young but it will decrease your stamina by half for weeks, if not for months. If he has the medical records to prove he actually had Covid, claiming it didn't affect his performance is akin to saying the Earth is flat, which unfortunately some of you actually believe.

    Damn that means pulev may have not been able to train properly for much of his camp. That was 50% pulev in the ring vs aj

    Wild...
    Think of what Pulev would have done in that ring.

    It’s the equivalent of fighting a clawless, toothless, sightless, forepaw-less tiger.

    AJ should be ashamed of himself.
    Give a game Pulev a rematch or surrender your belt.

    Nah, Pulev planned it like this, he wanted to level the playing field for AJ by getting covid prior to their fight because he knew it wouldn’t be fair if he was 100%.

    Fake news. Covid-19 has to wear a mask in order to protect itself from Pulev, not the other way around. This is common knowledge.

    I heard his heart stopped at the end of the 3rd round but he just flexed it a few times to "jolt" it back into beating and continued on. Didn't bring it up after the bout, even.

    No excuses.

    this.

    Also, fairness dictates that we give him 2 wins for his technical win over AJ.

    AJ is ducking covid-free Pulev. Rightfully.

    Pulev with 6 months training camp still had been mismatched opponent for A.J.

    There should be a rematch, this time AJ will fall against Covid free sea level Pulev!

    It's weird b/c I haven't gotten the Rona and you boys know I stay hugging on the King's nuts 24/7.

    I knew something was up. Motivated BJ ain't shit compared to Covid Free Pulev.

    50% stamina loss no. Maybe for some but not for most. Have you had the rona? I've had worse shit than rona but I know everyone is different.
