Marriaga eventually looked like a journeyman aiming to go the distance.

Anyone fancy Zewski standing a chance against the Mean Machine?
Not at all. I feel like Kavaliauskas will come in looking deadly. He has to or else he's getting buried for a long time.

Same here. I saw Avanesyan beating Lejarrraga and knew Kav had previously beaten Avanesyan (TKO, Avanesyan still standing), so ranked him as a top 10 contender before he faced Crawford. He gave Crawford some problems too early on, but as he was stopped, he really needs some impressive wins to get a second chance for a title belt. Perhaps once Pacman retires and Spence moves up, he could get a shot again. Not as a mandatory, but as a game opponent for someone defending the title for a first time. E.g. once Taylor/Prograis move up. Most top 15-20 welters are 30+ of age, so I guess there will be a lot of changes at the top during the next 2-3 years.

I think Kavaliauskas is on that level of Spence and Crawford, though. Just moved far too fast. Looked like shit against Ray Robinson then goes up against Crawford. Moved way too fast, imo.

I saw Ray Robinson vs. Josh Kelly, when Kelly was gifted a draw. I read some thought Kavialauskas too was gifted a draw against RR. Not a good result. Ok, let's see what happens now. Porter looked "ok-" against that unbeaten german Formella with no power, so the chance is there now to make a statement.

1-1 Close round, but I think Mean Machine edged it there. Zewski is looking more cagey it looked like ther.e

Zewski throws his right hand like a medieval like chained mace... Mean machine seems to have found his rhythm.

1-3 Zewski. I think Mean Machine trying to pace himself, but he's still trying to figure things out. That Zewski is an enormous guy btw!

Zewski was game tonight, though. Big guy. Made a big WW like Kava look like a fucking LWW.
