That's gonna be a nice little scrap. I'll give it to Hurd by SD. This is also a decent card for PBC.
By the way, is the fight between Deontay Wilder and Andrzej Wawrzyk still on due to AW testing positive for stanozolol?
Nope, from the looks of it, it's off. Wilder seems to have the worst luck in America, especially against foreign fighters as of late. Hell, Povetkin got popped for PEDs before the Wilder fight, as well as the Stiverne fight. Now this? From what I read, they're looking at Gerald Williams or Breazele as a replacement.
I just wanna outright give the fight to Hurd, but I know better. This is his first time fighting a guy his size in a while, and he's a pretty big 154 pounder. Harrison does have skill, more than I can say any Hurd opponent has had as of late.
However, I still believe that Harrison's confidence is a bit rocked from the Nelson TKO loss and he tends fall into lulls in the fight while trying to play it safe. To me, he just doesn't do well with sticking and moving, kinda reminds me of Williams left himself open for that counter uppercut from Charlo.
Anyway, we'll see! I'm stoked for this one! It kinda puts me in the mind of the Arnett/Gomez fight a few years ago, though both guys were undefeated.
