Should Cassper Nyovest have fought Priddy Ugly?

Following Cassper Nyovest’s fast and lackluster victory over Priddy Ugly, many have questioned whether the bout should have even taken place.

Saturday’s exhibition boxing battle at the Sun Arena in Pretoria is questioned mostly because of the size disparity between the two participants.

Many social media users were surprised to discover how much smaller Priddy Ugly was in comparison to Nyovest as they entered the arena to compete.

At their press conference two weeks prior to the bout, Priddy Ugly addressed the height and weight disparity between the two and stated that boxers he contacted had informed him that this was a huge mismatch.

Despite this, he stated he had overcome much greater obstacles to reach this point in his career and that the size difference did not worry him.

 

He was eliminated in the initial round.

“I like Priddy Sizwe Dhlomo commented, “Ugly man, he’s a good guy.” “He does not annoy anyone… Why did he take this challenge?”

People are laughing at Priddy Ugly, but they don’t realize how much more powerful Cassper was due to his weight advantage, according to @unhlekazi.

“20kg guys?? Come on, now. I had no idea there was a 20-kilogram weight disparity because I wasn’t really following the fight. Priddy should not have accepted it.

@ksj hlophe weighed in as well. “The weight disparity was a disadvantage, but Priddy Ugly has no boxing knowledge. Still, we must accord him respect for entering the ring.”

“Flora for what… He fought a man 20 kilograms lighter; do you know how much that is? “Priddy ugly had around a 7 percent chance of winning,” @rissygod remarked.

On Sunday, Priddy Ugly shared his own opinions about the battle on Twitter and made some insightful observations.

“My conclusions from the battle are as follows: 1. When you enter the ring, your game plan goes out the window, possibly due to the adrenaline rush and ambiance of the arena.

“I never utilized my jab effectively, maintained my distance, or created space between us. I moved inefficiently.”

He continued: “3. Kept way too low and didn’t have my guard up properly – Exposed my defense’s vulnerabilities. I did not pace the fight, perhaps because I was too eager.

“5. Ignore the difference in weight; my opponent had more experience and was better prepared. “It was a resounding triumph, S/O!”

3. Kept my guard too low and didn’t have it up properly, which exposed my defense’s vulnerabilities.
I did not pace the fight, perhaps because I was too eager.
Regardless of the difference in weight, my opponent had more experience and was more prepared.

He had a pristine triumph, S/O!
