^^Saw this yesterday thanks for sharing.

I really like Paulie, but I hope Artem's face holds up and if he could at least win this one I wouldn't mind to be honest. Seems like a honest, decent man. Tough as fuck.

Hopefully it's more Ward v Gatti than Mayweather v Gatti :lol:

I just hope this lad fights better than he chats. :lol:

What an intriguing fight and clash of personalities (not to mention peel and stick beards) this is. The stereotypical Brooklyn motormouth, flash and brash but articulate and clearly not stupid, versus a guy who doesn't look like he has enough brains to blow his hat off.

I think Paulie outsmarts him in the ring, on the mic, at tiddlywinks, or at anything else he fancies.

Has Paulie addressed any concerns about his hands?

There is to much chat going on from him, I can't keep up
No and that's probably going to be the deciding factor in this fight. What if he can't keep Artem off of him? Or breaks his hand in the process?! :lol: it be all downhill from then on.

I do see him knocking Artem down, but he is likely to break a hand. I see it as a level playing field with Artem's experience in MMA with small gloves and the fight in April.

Fair enough. I agree Paulies hands holding up or not will be a big factor!!

Artem will have some advantages if he can close the gap but if Paulie isn't completely shot he should be able to maintain his space. They fight in a much bigger ring than boxing as well I'm pretty sure.

Maybe for all his chat Paulie knows deep down he can't bang and will be looking for sharp crisp shots to open cuts and force a stoppage that way rather than banging him out

I can't name an upcoming fight that I'm more excited for. Honestly. I can't name one! Forgot who else is fighting and when.

Just looked up the date, June 22nd. That's when DLH and Mosley fought for the first time as pros.

Hard to pick a winner, but I think it looks like Ward v Gatti I or Paulie TKOs him with a few knockdowns.

Something tells me Paulie starts strong and half way in Artem makes it a fight.

:good

I'm with you on this. Politics has ruined boxing for me. I don't care about stadiums, belts, legacies, lineal this, p4p that, I just want to see good, honest, fun fights FFS and this sure looks like one to me.
