JOB - People need to understand that this isn't boxing. It's BKB.

Artem is the larger fighter and is in better shape. He is younger and he hits harder.

Paulie is obviously the more skilled boxer. Way more skilled. But he has zero power. And he'll need some power to command the respect of Artem when Artem pushes forward in his barrages. BKB fights are shorter and faster paced than regular boxing matches. Paulie's favours a longer fight where he can use his craftiness to wear his opponent down.

Honestly, it wouldn't suprise me if Artem wins this. Paulie is almost 39 years old and he has no experience in boxing without large gloves. He's a blown up super-lightweight fighting a guy who would be a light-middle or middleweight.

Lunacy.

I have some doubts about this fight and it's legitimacy. Assuming it's legit, the skill disparity is very similiar to Conor vs Floyd... except Paulie isn't gonna be inclined to carry Artem. Paulie could truly break Artem's teeth and piss down his mouth in a boxing ring, just as he claims.

JOB broke it down perfectly.

Looking for Paulie's Podcast. Anyone know what it's called. "Concussion Talk" ?

Doesn't look like he has been doing them in over a year:

Like I said... This isn't boxing with 16 oz. gloves.

I do agree it is a different sport. 

However, what if we put GGG, Canelo, the Charlo brothers, Wilder, or Andy Ruiz in there? Would these boxers also struggle? Or would they fuck these other dudes up bad?

I know where I would put my money.

Paulie even in his prime had pillow fists and brittle hands. Now that he is pushing 40 and well past it, he had to be one of the worst candidates to transition to bareknuckle boxing.

The line is like that bc a bunch of morons started laying money on Lobov after his last fight. Apparently getting his face tore up by a grappler makes him a betting favorite against Paulie. 

Lol well this is awkward....

Was true at the time. But yeah. Awkward ain’t the word. Just disbelief.
