Let Matt Korobov Show Us If His Deeds Can Match His Words

on

OK, he doesn’t have the most massive Twitter following. But Matt Korobov has been running one of the longer and stronger campaigns to snag himself a meaningful bout that I’ve seen in recent years.

The 35 year old Russian born Florida resident owns a 28-1 mark and craves a high profile tango. The middleweight takes regularly to social media to bang the drums for a fight against a top drawer type, a Boo Boo Andrade, or Jermall Charlo, someone like that.

And you know what…I’m curious to see Korobov put up, see someone like a Boo Boo try and shut him up. If his in ring work is 80% of his social game, then I think we see a pretty fair tussle.

Eddie Hearn, put him on your radar, maybe; Andrade could use a dance partner, and if you aren’t wanting or able to make Andrade v Danny Jacobs, then how’s about Boo Boo vs Korobov in January?
