Sad but that’s where we are. Fight “should” happen in November or early 2019. Let’s tack on another year on Wilder. If they wanted the fight, it would have been.

This is one of the many reasons I lost interest in boxing and will rarely (if ever again) dole out the cheese for a PPV.

GGG vs. Martirosyan official @ Stubhub. Ticket prices reflect the fact that they're trying to make up for lost revenue. No way I'm going live, but disappointed in this fight. Vanes already had a hard time getting to the top at 154. I don't see any way he wins this one.

I'm East Coast but have tickets to this fight and am looking forward to it - have heard good things about StubHub. Was planning on going to the Canelo/GGG rematch and had flight/hotel booked already so treating this as sort of a consolation prize since I've already got the vacation time booked from work anyway LOL.

My concern with the fight is much more with Vanes's long layoff (almost two years since he last fought) than his abilities. People are complaining out the guy like he's some B-level bum when IMO he's proven to be much better than that (at least at 154). His only losses are to legit, A-level guys and ALL of those losses were close, competitive fights - a couple of which you could've conceivably given him the decision (fights vs. Charlo and Andrade). He got a draw vs. Lara 5 years ago, back when Lara was in his prime - IMO Lara was one of the top 10-15 fighters in the sport pound-for-pound at the time.

Not saying Vanes is a monster but he's no walkover and was a decent/good option given the extremely short notice...
