Full Version: The Most Padded Record Ever?

I just went on boxrec.com to get some idea of who Darchinyan's next opponent, Joseph Agbeco, was. He's from Ghana and he's the IBF bantamweight champ. Two things stood out about his record:

1.) Of his 27 opponents, 17 of them had NEVER WON A FIGHT. And 3 of his remaining 10 opponents had a combined total of 8 wins. To be fair, most of those fights took place in Africa and maybe they just didn't have records that were acceptable for boxrec.com - but several of those winless opponents were like 0-1-0 or 0-4-0. So who knows? But I don't think I've ever seen anything like that.

2.) Agbeco's last opponent, Luis Perez, does have a win over Dimitri Kirillov, who was Darchinyan's last opponent (Darchinyan won by 5th round ko).

I suppose that after Arce and Mijares, Darchinyan deserves an easy fight on Showtime - something to make him look spectacular. Maybe Showtime has a long term contract with Darchinyan (though I thought Showtime did all its business on a fight by fight basis).

Boxrec is not always accurate in records of lesser known fighters.....I don't believe all his opponents had records like that .

Agbeko is a legitimate fighter.

LMAO!!!!


Good Catch. though, this could be dangerous too. The guy has never been tested before. No one knows what he's about.

I hope you're right because I'm planning my Saturday night around it.

Agbeko has power and a good chin, thats about it. He looked slow, bad footwork, not overly skilled, in his last fight. He will get flogged by darchinyan, though his chin will mean he may survive till the end.

This is just a setup fight for montiel hopefully, so darchinyan has a belt and they can call it a unification fight. More $$$. Like the kirilov fight setup the mijares match

Agbeko has very good stamina and comes on as the fight goes on. He can punch and he can take a terrific shot...he is going to make Vic work. I think this is going to be a fun fight.

there has been a lot more padded records then adbeko...

He is the IBF Bantamweight champion & I get the feeling that becoming a 3 division champion is important to Vic.

Nonito Donaire's next opponent is who?

I think Donaire and Darch should fight 10 more times. It would be exciting! LOL!

Brian Nielsen was 62-1 when he fought Mike Tyson.

Morrade Hakkar was 31-3 when he fought Hopkins.

Nielson had some very good names on his resume though. NOW...it can be argued on a few of those calls if it were not home cooking in Denmark.

BUT...he fought guys like Purrity, Dixon, De Leon, Tubbs, Holmes, Witherspoon, Orlin Norris, Jeremy Williams, Phil Jackson, Garring Lane, Lionel Butler.

He had a long list of named, worthy opposition.


Personally I think David Rodriguez has the most padded record going at the moment. At least at HW.
