I just hope Perez will be ready because he took the fight on 5 week notice and he had an long layoff.

I don’t understand the logic of the article writer. He says Perez might be able to “get the upset” but also says Perez is on the level of “guys like Povetkin.” Recall that Povetkin beat Chagaev. So by the writer’s logic, Perez should be the favorite against Chagaev. The flaw here is that Perez is not comparable to Povetkin just yet. Boytsov, another undefeated fighter who has yet to beat a big name, is a much better comparison. Chagaev has only lost to Povetkin and Wlad so this is a big chance for Perez to prove himself. He has more to gain from the fight than Chagaev, certainly. If Chag wins people will just say Perez wasn’t really any good.

I think this will be a great fight, don’t know why Mike Perez hasn’t had any fights since last year, perhaps fighters have been avoiding him because he is high risk and little reward? not enough money? no idea to be honest, but if Mike beats Chagaev he will make a name for himself, really looking forward to this fight.

Don’t get why Chagaev chose Perez instead of Fury. Fury has a bigger name and might be not more dangerous then Perez. Maybe Fury said ‘no’ to Chagaev instead?

As long as he’s in shape…My money’s on Perez too.

perez speed and power and size should give chagaev problems but chagaev is experince and crafty fighter but i take perez to win tho

Saw Perez there first too. He’ll bust up Chagaev and end whatever relevance he has left in the division.

First saw perez afew years ago when he was impressive in winning prize fighter. Looked like he had a chance of a decent future. Ive not seen him since and his slow progress will have done him no favours. Decent match up this. Good to see top heavys fight each other
