It's a W. That's all that matters.




Go back and watch the HBO broadcast and listen to Jones.

Monroe had good head movement, a decent jab and was countering. He was taking G's shots very well in the center of the ring. He was attacking the body very well. His mistake was he kept backing up to the ropes like they all do for some stupid reason. All he had to do was ramp up the aggression and just go forward with it in the middle of the ring, outwork G and circle him. But he kept backing up. That's why he got handed. Not because of a skill difference, but because he let G intimidate and domesticate him.

I seriously believe that what happened against Blackwell can only do one of two things: make Eubank nervous or make him dangerous. We know he's got punch speed and we know he'll go to war if it suits him. Question is whether he'll get intimidated. I don't think he will. If he doesn't, he just has to outbox the guy over the distance. If he wins over the judges by sheer activity, he will win the fight.
The reason Monroe kept backing up was because GGG made him back up. He's a master at cutting off the ring. He hunts his opponents down and methodically gives them a beating. When he's ready to get them out of there he ends the fight. IMHO many of his fights are training exercises and "presents for the fans." He took some big shots from Monroe and Stevens and walked right through them. Eubanks is talented but we'll have to wait and see if he can handle the level GGG brings to the game. Kudos to him if he can but after watching both fighters you'd have to be delusional to think Eubanks Jr has even a remote chance of stopping let alone hurting GGG. Looking forward to this one.
