Captain Canuck -
Paulie has better footwork and hands imo but the ring is small so I'm not sure he can stay out of reach and I think Artem can take what Paulie throws at him and keep coming.
The other issue is that I don't know if Paulie's hands can take the throwing and not get crushed and I am not sure Paulie can take the shots flush without gloves.
So much up in the air.
Footwork doesn't = running...Paulie has been great at staying in range but not getting hit. As for Artem being able to take what Paulie throws and keep coming...when did Artem become so good? He got his face busted up by a grappler in his last fight...as for not being sure Paulie can take flush shots without gloves, I have no idea what gives you that impression. He has been one of the most durable guys in boxing for years, and fought guys that hit much harder than Artem.
I don't understand why anyone thinks this is a real fight. Paulie is faster, slicker, tougher..literally better at every aspect of boxing. Unless he breaks both his hands early and quits on the stool, I don't see how Artem has a chance.
