Shiro TKO-4. Taconing looked dead when he got up. Still wobbling all over the place. I think it was a good stoppage.
Just looked it up on the fight card. Those Filipinos are some powerful punchers. Man, it's always them that have those really fucking odd upsets out of nowhere . Shimizu looks like he was getting fast-tracked.By the way, on the undercard Joe Noynay (18-2-1, 7KOs) upset Olympic 2012 Bronze Medallist Satoshi Shimizu with a sixth round stoppage. Shimizu was 8-0, 8KOs going into the fight, having successfully defended the OPBF featherweight title four times.
They're showing the fight now after I spoiled the result...Just looked it up on the fight card. Those Filipinos are some powerful punchers. Man, it's always them that have those really fucking odd upsets out of nowhere . Shimizu looks like he was getting fast-tracked.
So, he's definitely a fighter that improves with rematches. This time he let his hands go and landed his devastating power. Brant was lucky the referee stopped it when he did. Only one way that fight was going to end.Murata did do better in the rematch with N'Dam, IIRC. Again, I'd hate to be the coach that has to come up with a gameplan for Murata, though.
Shit, I really don't know. Rumors were that Canelo was targeting Smith, Kovalev, or Andrade. I've not seen GGG mentioned in any rumors yet; although, maybe I just wasn't looking in the right place.Thought he was supposed to fight GGG after the first one.
