Damn I predicted a barn burner and boy did we get it.
Firstly, I feel bad for Dirrell. His reflexes are clearly shot. He couldn't get out of the way of punches he used to easily slip. He's never been the same since the Abraham fight and should probably retire. Haven't many guys with worse luck. Not taking anything away from Uzcategui. He fought an awesome fight and is a real player at 168.
Even on fight night tho, more unfortunate and undeserving drama/controversy with a Dirrell fight. Big fan of Virgil Hunter but damn, him, Stitch and that corner failed Dirrell. There was a bunch of confusion going on and he went at least 2 rounds without quality instruction based on the nonsense in the corner.
AS for the main event, we all saw what happened. No need to rehash the obvious. Ortiz is still a monster. Nothing to be ashamed of. Bottom line is, you have to be sharp every second of every round with Wilder or it could be your last. Wilder is still wild, but incredible athletic and dynamic. Guys... *whispers* Heavyweight boxing is slowly but surely coming back. Shhhhhhh Winner of Parker/Joshua should clearly fight Wilder but I want to see the loser fight Ortiz. I really am impressed with Ortiz. He fought a hell of a fight. He's rather slow footed but he's so crafty and technically sound.
