By Tim Royner: At a loaded card on April 20, heavy weight Dereck Chisora is going to be facing Senad Gashi, David Allen is going to be carrying on former WBA heavyweight world champion Lucas ‘Big Daddy’ Browne, welterweight rival Josh Kelly is going to be battling Przemyslaw Runowski, and Conor Benn will see action also on Sky Sports at the O2 Arena in London, UK.
The reaction by the Boxing people to the card has been a mixed one. While the card has a lot of popular names onto it, there aren’t plenty of quality fights on peak of the cardgame. As an instance, Chisora vs. Gashi can be actually really a mismatch, and Browne vs. Allen might be the same way. Even the 26-year-old Allen is appearing much young and powerful for an old timer like Browne. It is potentially an excellent card though. We don’t understand what we’re likely to acquire from Chisora, who is coming off of a weight-loss. Gashi could pull an upset if he lands among the big shots on the chin of Chisora.
Former heavyweight world title challenger Chisora (29-9, 21 KOs) was hoping to carry on former WBO winner Joseph Parker on the April 20 card, but the New Zealand fighter chose not to take the struggle for a reason. Alternatively, Chisora is going to be facing Senad Gashi (17-2, 17 KOs) in the main event in a 12 round fight.
Gashi has lost out two of the last few fights. Chisora vs. Gashi isn’t a excellent headliner struggle, to be sure. Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn stuck with Chisora in the most important event instead of changing that status later he couldn’t get Joseph Parker because of him.
“Six weeks before I move back to warfare and boy I could ’t wait patiently,” said Chisora into skysports.com. “I’m stepping into the ring at The O2 Arena with passion in my soul. I’ve got a point to prove and a mission to continue. ”
Chisora, 3-5, realizes he cannot take too a lot more losses if he wants to keep his career going. Even though Chisora gave it a really fantastic attempt, he came from the losing end of the following knockout defeat. For Chisora to carry on to be still engaged in big fights in the branch, he needs to begin winning against. Gashi isn’t a top notch fighter regrettably, therefore this struggle isn’t going to establish anything. This is really more of a stay busy amount matchup for Chisora. He’therefore likely to triumph effortlessly. This isn’t the guy that Chisora wanted. Parker was the one which Chisora wanted, and had to reestablish his authenticity.
At the co-feature bout, the former World Boxing Association heavyweight champion Lucas ‘Big Daddy’ Browne (28-1, 24 KOs) is going to soon be carrying on David Allen (16-4-2, 13 KOs) in a 12 round fight. Browne, 3 9, is coming off of an extremely controversial six round points win over journeyman Kamil Sokolowski earlier this month on March 2 in Scotland. Browne was hauled down in the second round by Sokolowski, and defeated to punch the entire fight. Sokolowski, who’s made a lot of advancement in his match, was hitting Browne was quickly abandoned hooks the entire struggle, and landed definitely the cleaner, tougher shots during the game. Browne was only able to land jabs, as he was becoming countered by Sokolowski if he’d make an effort to throw his slow right hands and embarrassing appearing uppercuts from the surface. A lot of Boxing fans saw Browne’s triumph as exceptionally questionable.
I have not trained really hard in my life,” said Allen into Sky Sports. “I’m going to knock Browne spark , I struck too difficult for him. A triumph puts me onto the large stage. Lucas Browne isn’t the Lucas Browne who beat Chagaev, he’SA faded force. ”
A triumph over Browne could put Allen in to the top 15 at the heavyweight division rankings, but doesn’t mean he’s going to have a crack at a world title. Allen will have to be some solid contenders which aren’t older and taken appearing like Browne currently will be for him to have a opportunity for a world title combat IBF/WBA/WBO winner Anthony Joshua. Allen already lost to Dillian Whyte in 2016, therefore there’s no chance for a rematch with him. If Hearn would like to ramp Allen to get a title shot against AJ, he’ll should complement him against somebody else in their prime and no old such as Adam Kownacki, Filip Hrgovic or Joseph Parker. Sokolowski did a fantastic job of beating Browne, but he wasn’t awarded the victory by the referee that scored the struggle 57-56 for Lucas.
The previous time Browne fought at the O2 Arena, he was knocked out in the sixth round by Dillian Whyte last year in March in a devastating performance. Browne looked slowdown fat and past it in facing Whyte. Browne looked just like he didn’t be long in the same ring with Whyte, and he was immediately disposed of in getting halted at the sixth round.
Kelly may have his World Boxing Association International Welterweight name on the line for its struggle. Kelly, 25, wants to step upward for bigger struggles this year. Runowski isn’will be a lot of threat despite having an abysmal document. It’s up to Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn how fast he wants to proceed Kelly. He’s ranked #7 by the WBA right now, but he doesn’t appear to be near ready to challenge WBA ‘routine ’ 147 lb champion Manny Pacquiao or WBA Super World winner Keith ‘One Time’ Thurman for his or her own titles. Pacquiao, 40, isn’will use one of the cherished final remaining fights facing some guy without name recognition in the USA such as Kelly. Thurman would like to concentrate on wellknown fighters as well, but he’s someone which will be ripe for the pickings for Kelly if he can get a shot at his belt.
You just don’t know what you’re going to possess with Benn. Even though he’s got plenty of ability, his defense is nowhere, and his punch immunity leaves much to be desired. Benn is really a diamond in the rough, and needs a lot of work if he’s ever going to pan out.
