Great afternoon of fights. Very satisfying the entire card. Fight before Wach's has to be a contender for FoTY, though. Dude in black was getting the shit beat out of him and turned the entire fight around with one punch.

It was the best card I've seen in a long time. And I didn't even catch the main event!

seven-fight card. One FOTY. Two split decisions. Two majority decisions. And an entertaining heavyweight tussle. No filler. Just well-matched, enjoyable bouts from top to bottom.

Credit to MB Promotions and their matchmaker. That was only their fifth show; if that's the typical quality of their events, I am fully behind a world where Poland dominantes the boxing landscape :yep

By the way, Bakole is a good addition to HW. That was a good fight to watch. I was expecting a snoozer with two fatbodies. He came prepared for sure. Szpilka/Ilunga is a no-brainer to me, honestly.

Damn, I completely missed t!

I didn't even know this card was being broadcast. :fire:mad

Yeah, Hunter was seen as something of a soft touch, a name who'd fought for a world title. As soon as Bakole lost, he was dumped by promoter Barry McGuigan even though he was described by McGuigan as the 'most naturally gifted heavyweight' fighting now...

Considering the circumstances, credit to Bakole's team for managing to secure him a fight of this size so soon. He could have quickly faded into obscurity without ever getting another chance.
I would check about the dumping bit

Ridiculous fight. I was on the edge of my seat throughout. Dude was on the brink and put the one in black on queer street at about 1:46.
