Hassan N’Dam NJikam forges on in hopes of one other world title alternative!
Former WBA and WBO Interim middleweight champion and former WBA ‘Common’ middleweight champion Hassan N’Dam NJikam (38-5, 21KOs) returned to the squared circle for the the primary time in practically two years. In doing so, he would decide up a eight-round factors choice win over Gabor “Squirrel” Gorbics (26-20-1, 16KOs).
The bout was the previous middleweight champion’s first battle since December of 2019. It additionally occurred to be his first win since defeating Martin Murray again in December of 2018.
WHAT DOES THE WIN MEAN AND DOES HE HAVE MUCH LEFT?!
To be fairly sincere, the win does little or no, at the very least proper now. His opponent was merely chosen as somebody for NJikam to shake off the rust. This was evident by the horrendous report Gorbics introduced into their battle. At present unranked in all 4 main sanctioning physique organizations at tremendous middleweight, he must get in with and beat greater and better ranked opponents if he desires one final world title alternative.
By way of how a lot NJikam has left to supply the game, I’d say not very a lot. That is withstanding him being a confirmed strong fighter with tons of expertise. He additionally has plenty of mileage on his 37-year-old physique. Having solely been knocked out twice, he’s confirmed to be very sturdy although he’s notoriously identified for being knocked down a number of instances in plenty of his fights all through his profession.
At this level, he’s relegated to gatekeeper standing and that’s being beneficiant. With a crowded tremendous middleweight division, it’s just too onerous to see him with the ability to compete at this level in his profession. However that is boxing and we’ve seen the surprising occur earlier than.
