That was an epic brawl! You had a sense Baranchyk could end it anytime, then Ramos would come back with a stunner to surprise him! Totally awesome fight I watched while chatting with Olivier, lots of fun :)
I had Baranchyk winning by 2. The only stain on this fight is the judges scorecard… 99-91!? Impossible.
Yep, this judge is absolutely on crack. But I agree with the decision.
I wonder if Baranchyk can go far…. Sure he discarded this opponent, but do you think his wild, wide power shot style will make him go far? I’d like to see him against the best. On the economic side, he sure has already built a good following judging by the ruckus crowd :)
All these Friday the 13th masks’..! He sure got himself an enthousiastic fan base in… Oklahoma (haha!). But this fight on TV gave him a lot of exposure.
I believe he will reach the treshold of the top 10 of the division by next year if it goes on like this. At 24, he’s still young though and he’s still got a lot to learn a a lot, especially on the defensive side of his game. As it is right now, I don’t think he could handle guys like Molina or Provodnikov. But I would love to see him fight the latter. The Beast is the all-out kind of fighter that is very crowd pleasing. Personnally, I’m looking foward to his next fight hoping he will work on his technique until then.
I agree with you. It would be something against Provodnikov!
Great assessment; I agree!
I think he has to learn defense, for starters. As it stands, he’ll blast his way into the lower top ten. Then he’ll come up against guys who punish him mercilessly for that wild swinging and loss of balance.
Your view, Matt?
Well, I’m not very learned about the technique. I just think you are right :)
I had it a stained 99-91 myself, dear Olivier! I didn’t rate Ramos’s sharp jabs as highly as Barnachyk’s blistering three and four-punch combination body attack when he had his man against the ropes. Both fighters were game, and it was a pitched battle at times, Ramos looking the smarter and more accurate fighter. But whose punches told the difference? I kept scoring for Barnachyk just slightly in round after round. He is a slugger with an infernal engine. Move, step around him, outfox him, do SOMETHING to neutralize his relentlessness…or suffer. The face of the loser at the end reminded me of Arturo Gatti after Mayweather Jr: those eyes like chemically-grown turnips, his face a map of agony. Kudos to both fighters!
… a map of agony! Hahaha! Difference is Gatti didn’t score as much on Mayweather (if anything) than Ramos did on Baranchyk. About your scorecard, I guess you value more the power factor than I do. But hey, as long as you don’t have it 99-91 for Ramos, I’m okay with your scoring ;) .
Yay! Thank you so much ATBF for posting this fight. I was scared you would not since both guys are quite unknown. But they really put on an amazing slugfest! Both fighters have average-good skills but were so intense from the first to the last bell that it makes it a FOTY candidate for sure.
I gave it 4 stars, but hesitated to give 5.
exciting fight. 4 stars
The 3rd round could be round of the year!
Fun as hell, though it took years off each fighter’s career. Do they teach these sluggers defense at all? Baranchyk’s unusual stamina brings to mind Eubank Jr., but unlike the UK boxer he throws like a monster. You could make a case for this being over by the seventh round and Ramos’s corner sending their guy out for three more beatdowns.
My score was 99-91.
I remember I had it closer, but anyway, this was something :)
