Welcome to a different weekly gander at my bulging, bulbous sack and the marvelous cash shot from inside, which is all the time only one tickle away from exploding throughout boxing’s purveyors of ignorance. This week, we now have questions and feedback concerning Ortiz vs. Ennis, the younger light-weight kings at welterweight, and extra
Teo, KingRy, and Haney at Welter?
I seen Vergil Ortiz dispatch Maurice Hooker, and now I seen Jaron Ennis dispatch Sergey Lipnets. Each these guys are poised for stardom at 147. Nevertheless, if we will view them as the way forward for the welterweight division. We received to consider the opposite three younger studs: Teofimo Lopez, Devin Haney, and Ryan Garcia.
Traditionally, most nice welterweights develop into the welterweight division from decrease divisions. Whenever you take a look at the peak and attain of Teo, Ryan, and Haney, it is apparent that they will be preventing at 147 as soon as they enter the prime of their profession. Ortiz and Ennis’ greatest days is likely to be at 154. Will they develop out of that 147 lb. body whereas ready for a title shot? If they do not, by the point they get a title shot at 147, Teo, Ryan and Haney will likely be at welterweight themselves. I am not saying that Ortiz and Ennis’ future at welterweight will likely be stormed by Teo, Ryan, and Haney. However my level is, that by time they get to the extent of celebrity standing, there will likely be extra competitors at 147 than we have ever seen.
I’d additionally assume that Teo, Ryan and Haney would have extra ring expertise and extra championship stage fights below their belt. I hate to go in opposition to the development of Ennis and Ortiz dominating the Welterweight division. However I believe Teo, Ryan and Haney would be the A-side of the welterweight division by 2025. What’s your opinion concerning Teo, Ryan and Haney at welterweight sooner or later?
— Nail Rahman
You’re proper. Traditionally, the welterweight greats have come up from light-weight. And, realistically, Teo, Garcia, and Haney are already coming into the ring at 147 lbs. (or above) as lightweights. But when all three make it as much as 147 as elites, which means they in all probability didn’t get it on as lightweights, and that might be an actual pisser for followers.
However, yeah, that might make welterweight much more intriguing, assuming that Ennis can keep at 147 (and there’s been no indication that he’s struggling to make weight in the mean time). Think about mature, fully-developed Vergil Ortiz, Jaron Ennis, Ryan Garcia, Devin Haney, and Teofimo Lopez up on the prime of the division. Man.
Personally, nevertheless, I don’t assume Teofimo makes all of it the way in which to the highest at welterweight earlier than getting derailed by one thing or somebody. I believe Haney’s rise will likely be tough as nicely, provided that he’s going to have a troublesome time getting huge fights. And we’ll simply should see about Ryan Garcia’s continued dedication to boxing when mainstream, out-of-boxing endeavors begin tugging extra at his shirt sleeves.
I’d a lot favor for a breakthrough star to be made at 135 through round-robin– within the right here and now– after which deal with what these guys can do at 147 later.
Hope you and your loved ones are high-quality these days.
My enter for this week:
-Though on paper, Ryan Garcia is taking one other step-up combat, in my eyes Fortuna is tailor made for him, too small for Ryan, so i’m not excited in any respect for this combat.
-Are we ever going to get Joshua vs Fury signed in the future?
-Welterweight, in any case these prima donnas dragging their toes (sure, Spence, Thurman, Garcia and Crawford), it appears we’re getting new blood, which appears thrilling, solely downside, once more, networks. Ortiz is affiliated with DAZN (which could change in a few years seeing how Oscar is flirting with Triller), Conor Benn (not too offered on him, noticed him get beat by this french man fairly unhealthy) with DAZN as nicely and Stationis and Ennis with PBC. It is likely to be value noticing Ennis is just not promoted by PBC, he’s solely related to Cameron Dunkin, which could in all probability enable him to combat exterior PBC.
I price Ennis the best. What I’ve seen from him is a portion of what I used to see in Roy Jones and he’s solely 23.
I’ll reply you one after the other.
– True, dimension may go in opposition to Fortuna on this one. However I do see Fortuna’s hand pace and reflexes being a difficulty for Garcia, who has some professional defensive weaknesses. I’m good with this combat. I believe it’s sufficient of a take a look at to be a “actual” combat. For what it’s value, I believe Fortuna is a stiffer take a look at than Luke Campbell. It’s a superb developmental combat for Garcia, who’ll get some seems and approaches from Fortuna that he’s but to see as a professional.
– Fury vs. Joshua WILL get signed and sealed, pretty quickly. Each fighters and their respective groups want this combat and don’t have every other actual blockbuster choices to show to. It’s potential we might even hear one thing “for certain” by the point you learn this.
– Boxing’s unhealthy enterprise mannequin will proceed to be a burr within the sport’s boxer briefs. And, yeah, it’ll do to Ennis-Ortiz what it’s doing now to Spence-Crawford. One thing wants to vary and my hope is that in these subsequent couple years, as offers run out and legit mainstream enterprise buyers begin to demand a return on their investments, boxing’s bossmen lastly determine that cooperation is the rising tide that may elevate all boats.
Vergil Ortiz vs. Jaron Ennis
Gun to go, who wins proper now– Vergil Ortiz Jr. or Jaron Ennis? No cop-outs, both.
Proper now, I’d go together with Ortiz, solely as a result of black-and-white strain fighters like Ortiz discover their area of interest, their groove earlier on of their careers. In a yr’s time and certain perpetually after, although, I’ll trip with Ennis.
