White right now is fighting the Coronavirus and even though we are a long way from Saturday, and anything could happen, it is exciting. White seems to have everything cover.
Negative Nonsense!! As states are starting to reopen and relax some of the rules a possibility of a 2nd wave and an increase in numbers of cases and worse case scenarios. Personally, I can’t hope to think that is bit a rush? How do the fighter feel about it and how have their been keeping up with their training?
White is truly against all odds right now!!
Good luck to White and the UFC and I hope to watch the fight on Saturday
Thank you for reading? What do you think about White finally getting his fight? Is it rush?

I wanna clarify before anything that even though im not the biggest expert of the sport, nor boxing historian but I am a huge fan of the sport and i’ve followed it ever since I was a young kid watching the puertorican legends go against other legends and icons. I have seen a lot of youtube videos on boxing and its historic moments and i have learned as much as I have been able to. I am not exaggerating when I say this. I have NEVER seen a dominant champion get dominated the way Wilder was on saturday night.There is lot to talk about here. But first lets breakdown the fight.
The 7 Round Main Event was the biggest, was the biggest boxing event in since Mayweather vs Mcgregors and the biggest Heavyweight Boxing event in about 2 decades and it wasnt because of nothing. These are the two best heavyweights in the world facing eachother in their prime both with undefeated records at the time and coming off a historic first firght that ended in a draw. History bound to be made.
In Las Vegas, at the MGM Grand, the stage was set. The fight began with the showmanship from both WIlder and Fury. Tyson came in on a throne with a crown and a crown, Deontay came in with a mask and body armor almost like it was the Bronze Bomber in real life. The first round started really close there was only a 3 punch difference. Fury was moving as usual and Wilder was barely missing with his power punches but he was connecting with many of his bombs. Fury won the round with the end sequence in which he got a little combination. In the second round it was Deontay who took the round according to the tv scoreman.
But after the 3rd round it was as if someone flipped a switch in Deontay Wilder. He was a shadow of his former self in that fight ever since he got knocked down the first time. As a person who loves the psychological aspect of things and people, I saw a lot of things in his eyes, legitimate fear of not knowing what to do next, overanalyzing every little detail and yet at the same time it seemed like…nobody was there, like he wasnt there mentally. It was like that right until they threw in the towel. When that heppened, seemingly out of nowhere, he reuturned as if he realized that he could do no more. Now i will further analyze this in a YouTube video I plan on making because it has truly captivated me but I won’t leave you without giving credit to Tyson Fury.
What a magnificent gameplan. From being way heavier than Wilder to clinching to not allowing Wilder to get space. It’s crazy to me how he was able to move the way he usually moves and even with a new trainer. What a fighter. That Was NonSense!
