  1. Gotta love Gegard. He is such a funny cat. Nice surprise that Karyn kept her tradition of interviewing Gegard prior to European Fight Night 3 next Saturday. He is on a 8 fight win streak. He hasnt lost since April of 2015 when Uriah Hall knocked him out. So 4 years he hasnt suffered a defeat.

  2. I actually think that Whitaker would beat this champion as Whitaker is a superior champion to this chap is seasoned or one past it . When will he realise . Whitaker beat an Olympic Çhamp . You want to fight Robert Whitaker too line your pockets so talk it up . Whitaker beat Hall …. MacDonald was down when he fought you .
