Title: Saturday Night Fights: Linares Vs Campbell Parker Vs Fury
Post by: Dexter_Morgan on September 18, 2017, 11:58:39 AM
Another decent night of boxing ahead with Linares Vs Campbell I can't see past a Lineras stoppage win I don't think this fight will last to long I would suspect 6-8 rounds.

Parker Vs Fury not sure who I fancy in this one real pickem fight for me could go either way.

Can't see this ending well for Campbell.  He didn't deal well with being put under pressure by Mendy and Linares is probably one of the best offensive fighters in the game at present.

Linares is very talented but he's vulnerable himself, he's a little fragile and he's been on a lot of wars. Mitchell came close to beating him, and Crolla ran him very close first time around. Fair enough he did a job the second time around against Crolla, but Crolla hasn't got the length, range, speed or power of Campbell. I do think that win flattered Linares to a degree.....and Campbell just might be getting him at a good time.

I think Mitchell on his day was a far superior pro fighter to Campbell who still doesn't seem to have shaken off some his amateur traits.  It's a big jump in class for Campbell as well and I just can't really see him being able to deal with the variety that Linares has.

It is a jump up in class, but I don't think Linares brings the physicality that has seemed to bother Campbell. Jorge is very skilled but I think Campbell has the technical ability and natural attributes to compete with Linares on that front. I really think Campbell is extremely live in this one. Interestingly Mitchell fancies Campbell to win too.

The fury fight intrigues me. If your asked me two year ago I'd of said Parker all day long but I'm on the fence after parkers last outing

I'm going to say Parker but not as confident as i might of been but saying that depends how many rounds Fury has shovelled down his neck these last 18 month  ;D

Inactivity at his age isn't great prep for a fight like this

Edit•••

Wtf am I thinking I'll be lumping on Parker now I've thought about it properly !!!

How the F*ck are they expecting to get money via youtube?


The gypos wont even pay the door fair they will just push past security like they did at BJS/Eubank and I cant see Parker bringing many from New Zealand.

Does he have a big following in New Zealand? Perhaps they are buying it! Thought unless your were shearing sheep or playing rugby they didnt really follow anything else

Yeah, I heard 3k last week.  I think I saw yesterday at the press conference Mick said the arena was set up for 10k and 5k tickets had been sold.

£15 for a fight on YouTube sounds ambitions.  I thought they'd have gone in around the £8 mark as it's the first one to try and get people on board.  The fight will be Sunday morning in NZ as well so hardly prime time over there.

Linares/Campbell is a very interesting fight, a massive opportunity that could open some doors for Luke even if he loses (which I think he will). I think/hope he will do better than Crolla did last time because Campbell does have more skills, is a bit more elusive than Crolla and isn't as shop worn.

Linares with a late TKO for me or wide points, but i really hope I'm wrong.

Good job you're here mate.  :D

Campbell will likely make Linares look slightly amateurish at times but ultimately get beat down....he may hold on for a points loss.

Hope Campbell wins but just can't see it.

Not sure about that reading of the fight, I've NEVER seen Linares close to being outboxed or made to look amateurish. I can't see Campbell beginning that particular trend.

He best hope he's able to use his height to establish a distance advantage against Linares, that's his best hope of winning a boxing match IMO. I

I think Mitchell certainly outboxed Linares in spells, but again, he was a very good boxer on his day and I'd fancy a much harder puncher than Campbell so had the ability to back Linares up until his eye went.

Which is why I said I fancied him to do better than Crolla did last time, when he got totally outclassed. Campbell won't have the advantage of hometown judges either.

TKO = worse than Crolla did last time.
Wide points loss = the same as Crolla last time.

Neither outcome amounts to Campbell doing better than Crolla in either fight.

He can suffer either loss and do better in the actual fight than Crolla did, as in being more competitive and a live opponent, which is what I meant, picky bastard.  :)

Expecting Linares to win by decision, I don't think Linares is as good as everyone bangs on about - he beat a fairly limited fighting in Crolla who is more heart than skill. I can definitely see how Campbell can win this fight but have to learn towards Linares experience to get a UD. Hope Luke can do it though.

Fury I actually think will win, although his competition has been poor and had long periods of inactivity. Although remember watching the Andy Ruiz Jr fight and he looked so poor and again not great in his last fight. I do think Hughie is a good fighter and if he fights a disciplined fight which I think he will then I can see him taking a decision.

I think Linares will stop Campbell inside 5 rds. Luke just doesn't have the pop to deter linares and he'll bust him up and get him to the body I think.

Fury v Parker... not a clue.
Fury doesn't punch hard and Parker is limited in all areas. At a guess Parker on pts.

Surprised you're giving Campbell so little chance mate.....I know I could be made to look daft, but I think he's got a great chance. I see Linares as a quality operator, but a vulnerable Champ and Campbell could be getting him at a great time. I think his range and speed pose Linares issues and I think he will have the pop to hurt Linares when/if he can get Linares reaching for him.

I'll be surprised if this is straightforward for Linares, I think he's in for a fight.

Agreed. As soon as this fight was announced I fancied Campbell. Linares is a quality operator and a joy to watch, but his last couple of fights against a game, but light punching Crolla has flattered his vulnerability.

Can see Campbell scoring a few knockdowns in this one but then the other way around could be just as likely.

I got up to watch the Campbell fight after checking the result on twitter. I personally didn't think it was as close as is being made out. It was a spirited performance from Luke Campbell and I admire him and his boxing skills however Lineras as was always that level above and if in trouble he looked as if he had plenty in reserve.

I believe Campbell can come again he needs to fight at tempo and he needs to lose that upright amateur stance towards the end of the fight he looked as if he'd learned from the contest. I will watch his next fight with interest to see if he's progressed.


Title: Re: Saturday Night Fights: Linares Vs Campbell Parker Vs Fury
Post by: lurkyshaka on September 24, 2017, 08:26:53 AM
Campbell started slowly and the KD obviously set him back, but he showed his quality as the fight progressed an he settled in and realised he belonged. If Eddie can lure Linares into a rematch then Campbell could perhaps go one better.....but I don't think Linares will be interested. I expect he'll breathe a sigh of relief at just negotiating a tricky defense successfully and move on. But suppose it depends how big a carrot Hearn is prepared to dangle.


Title: Re: Saturday Night Fights: Linares Vs Campbell Parker Vs Fury
Post by: Gaz on September 24, 2017, 09:31:08 AM
Didn't watch the Fury fight intently for the full 12 but every time I looked up at the TV it seemed like Parker was throwing bombs at Fury, missing the majority of them and falling into Fury while he was back on the ropes. Fury landed a few nice looking shots but never with any power, suppose it's whether you preferred that shoeshine stuff or Parker's aggression. Neither are great fighters though.

I thought Campbell did very well to overcome was was frankly a shit first 3 rounds, and he certainly made an argument of the middle portion of the fight. Linares seemed to be a bit flat for spells in the fight but had enough class and experience to score well early and late in the fight to take it by a wider margin than seems to be reflected on the scorecards. If a rematch happened I suspect both fighters would be better for this experience. Campbell knows now he can be competitive at world class and Linares will have more respect for his skills and be more switched on for the full 12 rounds. Decent fight, high quality but Linares a fairly clear winner IMO.


Title: Re: Saturday Night Fights: Linares Vs Campbell Parker Vs Fury
Post by: legs on September 24, 2017, 10:23:54 AM
I thought Campbell did well after first 3 rounds it looked like he would get blown away.

I think it was a win for Linares probably 115-112 how many times did Macklin bring up the 10-8 can't stand him annoys me !!

I think Linares will fight Garcia now it's one I want to see.

Campbell will be a world champion next year I think.


Title: Re: Saturday Night Fights: Linares Vs Campbell Parker Vs Fury
Post by: Faulks on September 24, 2017, 10:28:44 AM
Liniares and his shots looked crisper but credit to Campbell for not lettin his head go down after the KD


Title: Re: Saturday Night Fights: Linares Vs Campbell Parker Vs Fury
Post by: lurkyshaka on September 24, 2017, 11:49:16 AM
I think if Campbell had actually gone for it he'd have took it....but he seemed a bit too concerned with not making mistakes himself, rather than looking to his own offense to open Linares up. But the KD and the swelling to his eye was an early sickener so understandable he'd take some time to settle back down and regain confidence. That start could have finished many fighters mentally before they'd got going, but Campbell showed superb composure to stay poised and work his way back.

Linares's experience was the difference but not by much. Those little bits of showboating were bullsh*t designed to kid the judges/audience and Campbell that Linares wasn't troubled, but truth be told he was having some issues getting at Campbell but was trying to mask it.

If Campbell had gone after Linares with a little more spite I think he'd be the new champion, but he'll be better for the experience and chomping at the bit for another go. I think Campbell's stock probably rises even in defeat.


The Fury fight was actually a similar story. I thought he nicked it, but I wasn't shocked he didn't get it....though I was shocked at two of the cards! Fury controlled the fight technically, but just needed to cement himself and put some mustard in the right hand and then follow up with something. He nullified Parker with movement and the flicking jab, but he didn't seize the day and control of the fight. Very frustrating because that fight was there for him to take with no argument.

Regarding Parker....while I appreciate that Hughie is very awkward to fight, Joe has looked very pedestrian in his last 3 fights and is not the big time threat he was built up to be. He'd not last 5 rounds with AJ and I can imagine Dillian Whyte will be dying to get his hands on him. That fight would suit Parker better stylistically, but its a fight that Dillian would really fancy and could potentially set up the rematch with Joshua in unification. Eddie's probably already been on the blower.

Campbell has just said to the press his dad died two weeks ago and he didn't want anybody to know I have huge respect for him carrying on as he did he could easily have pulled out the fight.

He is a really nice guy and I would love to see him become world champion which I think he will do next year.

Nearly caught up with all the fights, just got to catch the WBO title fights on boxnation.

The Fury fight, again it's the 118-110 cards which really tarnish the result, I thought it seemed pretty close and could have gone either way, neither guy swept and I don't think did enough to certify the victory so I could see a close score either way or even the draw. Parker has not impressed of late and is hanging onto the belt, a bit of the hand speed has gone and he looked very clumsy, Hughie missed a great chance there.

Linares/Campbell, I had Linares wide, Campbell competed well, sunk some nice body shots in there and did land a few good shots. Linares just looked more explosive and although it was competitive, more so than I thought it would be, I only gave Campbell a few rounds. Personally I felt the scorecards were harsh on Linares, a solid defence there though, Luke stepped up and you have to commend him after what he has gone through. Bring on Linares vs Garcia.

Without giving away the result, check out Dorticos/Kudryashov, it won't take too much of your time.

I think it can be sold well now, we know Hearn can sell a fight and with the football ground line or here casuals plus them saying Luke wasn't at his best due to his dad passing(fair point) then the rematch would start to make sense. Flanagan needs to leave W***** and open up fights with Crolla and Campbell. Garcia v Linares is a great fight mind and has to happen.

I think it can be sold well now, we know Hearn can sell a fight and with the football ground line or here casuals plus them saying Luke wasn't at his best due to his dad passing(fair point) then the rematch would start to make sense. Flanagan needs to leave W***** and open up fights with Crolla and Campbell. Garcia v Linares is a great fight mind and has to happen.

I agree I'd have no problem if Campbell got a rematch I think he showed a lot of heart in the fight fighting overseas with a start like that against the heavy favourite most would crumble he was miles better second half of the fight.

Flanagan does need to leave W***** but doubt he will he isn't going anywhere with him and he is boring as hell too which doesn't help.

Not seen too much of the other champ Easter Jnr is he any good ?

Garcia is the man I think he'd beat Linares

Seen zero of Easter Jr. Garcia v Linares could be a great scrap. Both will be trying to take heads off.

I've only seen a couple of Easter Jr fights but he's about 6ft tall with a massive reach so he would be capable of causing problems for any of the other guys in the division.

Even reading Flanagan's name makes me bored he's that dull.
