Dmitry Pirog - Beweglichkeit-Reaktion.2012.Best !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pirog had so much swag in his style man, looks really confident and slick
The judges were trippin.
Catchnelo, give me my fight.
this guy that got starched is the same guy that wants 60/40 split against GGG 😂😂😂
Lenny Henry
Look at that shifting just before the knockout. It's an old technique that you don't see anymore but they still teach it in eastern europe. Golovkin and Kovalev use it. This will be what happens to Jacobs again if he fights Golovkin.
Damn you herniated disk!  Pirog vs GGG would have been a classic.
Ste Dunn
What a huge loss for the boxing world to use this man to injury!
Hell of a fighter. The MW division could've used Pirog these past few years. Damn shame.
Regz Zuse
Pirog is a mixture of Floyd 19:09 Naseem Hamed 21:11 And Jim Carrey (Dodging from the movie Me Myself and Irene) 21:29 Very interesting fighter, too bad his career was short.
This guy has NO shot vs Golovkin. None.
jacobs could of got up they didn't let him up..
chris mccabe
Russian fighter are the best at shifting...throwing the power hand and switching to opposite stanse and making jab a power punch...GGG..Kovalev..Pirog
Alexander Tilinin
Best Best Best !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bryan Ibarra
GGG vs no chin Jacobs might end like this for sure.
Станислав Адамов
Pirog could be top fighter now, bad luck
Man we were a fight away from seeing Pirog vs GGG and then Pirog got his back injury and went into early retirement :( honestly this is a really talented and tough boxer I'd give him a great chance at beating GGG. You can see with his footwork and style here he'd know everything GGG would be coming at him with it would be a chess match to see who lands the money punch. Would be a crazy tactical war and exciting as hell. No one is left in the division now that can hold a candle to GGG so we need either Ward to come down and now this craziness of Brook moving UP? Canelo was a bitch too. Sad to see Pirog early retirement because we could have had a different reigning dominant champ with him or GGG would actually have some competition that would actually get into the ring and bang with him with a great chance to actually win. This is the dance partner GGG never got have :(

From Russia with KO punch...

Such a shame with pirog,could have been a great fighter

A MASTER OF SHIFTING and I would say the second best in shifting at present is Golovkin.

Seeing this again years later, it holds up. Pirog might have been a great one had fate been kinder. I cannot think of another fighter from the former Eastern Bloc with his style, not to mention his brand of swagger. Maybe Lomachenko moves even better than Pirog, but as Steward and Lampley point out Pirog was self consciously imitating SRL and FMJr. I had forgotten how good he looked in this fight. The judges who had it 3-1 Jacobs, and in particular Compubox's numbers in the 4th round, were detached from reality. I gave Jacobs the 1st. Nevertheless, the bout also makes me respect Jacobs. He did adjust and did land. He was confronted with a really tough challenge, but he was trying to figure Pirog out and having some success. The KO is actually kind of strange in retrospect because it follows Jacobs offering to touch gloves after an accidental and obviously not very significant low blow. I kind of wonder if Pirog's decisive attack here was not a gambit tried when Priog thought Jacobs might have lost focus. Good idea if so. Regardless, I think Pirog was the better fighter in 2012 and was probably going to KO Jacobs at some point. This experience will benefit Jacobs though. He has known the worst, and he has been straightforwardly careful about GGG, putting off any fight and preparing I'm sure. I think GGG vs Jacobs is an underrated fight. I'd favor the Kazakh but Jacobs will be mentally and physically prepared, a better fighter than he was here. That which does not destroy us makes us stronger. Wish Pirog was still a player, but there is irony for you. He would be challenge for Golovkin at least.
Andres Kiani
Jacobs is such a classy man. Hats off to him.
The Big Dog
Pirog is a joy to watch. Such an interesting style. Very calculated. Damn shame the way his career turned out.
Wow, what a great body/head movement 19:08
Justin Boseman
I wish Pirog was still fighting......he'd give GGG or anyone else problems at 160.......very talented
Dr Anxiety
sucks pirog had back issues. I would have loved to watch this guy become a Legend. now it's only gonna be a big "what if" amazing fighter.
Jacobs lost every single round and got destroyed
Man, Pirog isn't called grandmaster for nothing. What an incredible fighter, shame the fate never wanted him to step in with the GGG, although Dmitry chose GGG fight instead of his mandatory WBO challenger. What a hell of a fight we never seen because of his back injury... This is my first fight i've ever seen him and i must say i'm a longlife fan of this guy. Props to Jacobs too, he's a warrior and very real down to earth person!
Steward commenting is music to my ears.
Pirog  vs  GGG = fireworks
Bill Grundy
Would have loved to have seen him against GGG
Jacobs dropped like a sack of potatoes and I see him the same today no improvement.
stephen tarr
weird watching a Russian with that style
Anissa Nedjari
Referee should have counted out before calling it off. Jacobs might have got up. Pirog is a very good and awkward fighter. it's a shame he retired so early. Pirog vs GGG would have been one good fight
Ruslan Tatarinov
аж челюсть слышно было как треснула....5 раунд...dawn
Kwame Johnson
I've never seen a Russian pressure fighter fight this well. Let's start a GoFundMe to get Pirog a back transplant! :-(
This dude can shift which is a rare thing in Boxing today.Duran use to do it and now GGG but not too many others. Shift = When you start a punch in one stance but end up in another at the end of the punch.Great way to close the distance its almost a lost art in boxing.
Only The Strong
GGG don't move like Pirog. He's there to be hit. Pirog style was difficult. GGG style isn't as difficult at all. He invites contact.
Bad stoppage he should have given him the count
William Price
It's hard to win by backing up 90% of the time. Jacobs was clearly on the defensive. Pirog had him in survival mode, it was just a matter of time. triple G will walk him down too.
Bill B.
Pirog vs. GGG would be such a fun fight. Too bad Pirog's back betrayed him.
duane ford, cj ross , both crockshits were not needed that night.. imagine if pirog didnt ko, i bet he would have been robbed lol.
FreeWorldTravel .TV
I feel sorry for him taking the ggg fight, he doesn't stand a chance.
Валерий НВП
Пирог отличный боец!!!! Техника боя замечательная,шахматист на ринге...словно жанглирует ...защита...нападение, классно...
For all people saying ref stopped it early.. He showed no signs of life when he got knocked down until he waved it off, can't blame him
What happened to Pirog was tragic he was a special fighter, and hopefully his body has healed from that crazy injury and he returns this year.
John Galtman zzz
Джейкобс был тогда зеленым, еще и раком болел. Сейчас он намного лучше и сильней. Уверен, что даст бой Гене.
Never seen a ref push a boxer back down when he was trying to get up , ever .
Veridicus Maximus
Man, I miss Emmanuel Stewart!
Igor Pospekhin
Jacobs wanted to rise after about 7-8 seconds on the floor. Even if he managed to rise he would not be able to beat the count anyway. That's why, I think, the ref told him to stay on the canvas just to recover his senses.
geoff N
Pirog had a great style and would give any fighter problems, even GGG. And I don't understand the scoring at all. It was clear to anyone who understands boxing who was winning, regardless of statistics and punches landed.
Honestly Jacobs would have gotten up but if you lay flat on your back whilst being counted you give a ref little option. Jacobs should have sat up at least to show that he was fine. Anyways Pirog was turning up the heat and I doubt Jacobs would have beaten him anyways. Too bad we never saw more of Pirog's awkward/stalker like style.
Cesar Flores
Damn what happened with Pirog? Could of gone on to do great things.
Joey L
Holy, moly, great knockout!
Damn... Pirog vs GGG would have been great fight. Pirog had an exceptional body movement, a treat to watch.
Loredano Boari
Pirog was a fantastic boxer!!! I really like him, he had power and master defense with an unusual philly shell style for an east european.. A real shame that injuries ended his carrer early
Rich j
What a waste of talent, sad! Pirog Dirrell and Valero should all be stars right now
Jacobs was winning before KO.  I think Pirog's KO is a result of lucky punch like in the fight Pacman vs Marquez.   Jacobs has  talent, power, good rating ...   Why doesn't he fight with title holders like GGG, Cotto, Taylor, Lee or any other title holders, now?  I think he has enough skills to be a champion, now. 
Lol Jacobs would have gotten up, the ref pushed him back down and said it's over! Very suspect
Costantino Milvio
Pirog really fought like a Black American boxer.
Shame about pirog back injury. He would beat GGG and Mayweather
Great stoppage. Good ref.
Anthony Vazquez
Pirog would have stopped Golovkin 💯
Derrick Roberts
When a boxer is knocked down, the referee shall order the opponent to the farthest neutral corner of the ring and pick up the count from the timekeeper or the official counting for knockdowns. Should the opponent fail to stay in the corner as directed by the referee, the referee shall stop the count and redirect the boxer to go back to the corner and resume the count at the point that it was interrupted. In the event of any knockdown, the timekeepers count will cease when picked up by the referee whose count shall prevail and be relied on by the boxers.
Ivaylo Ivanov
Unique fighter, in my opinion good and Kovalev and Golovkin, but of course the Russian style is unique! Спасибо Пирог!
He will never be able to beat GGG. GGG will do something similar to what this guy did to him in here, GGG will be in his face, he will not let Jacob breath and with GGG destructed punching power it will be only a matter of time before Jacob falls to GGG punching power suffocated pressure in his face and loose by knock out. Jacob Glass jaw and GGG punching power and iron chin is a recipe for disaster for Jacob
Danny is a dirty fighter. Glad he got KO'd!
Ko Support
It seems as the commentators were saying “oh hey pirog fights like a American boxer” trying to take away the Russian fighters credit
Арман Мелконян
Красавчик Пирог
Gear Bangin
what's sad is that if he hadn't knocked out Jacobs, He would have been robbed by the Judges
Jamaal Davis
People disrespect Jacobs for this fight but Pirog was in his way to being one of the top fighter's in the sport
George Karpouzis
Time to fight Golovkin. Jacobs is ranked 6th at Middleweight. Hes had 30 fights. He's got 26 KOs so he has the power to earn GGG respect. I think his handlers are scared to put him in against Golovkin. How would this fight go?  First few rounds would be tense. Jacobs would throw some big shots. Golovkin would also throw big shots. At some point Golovkin would walk him down.
antonio montano
5 rounds with ggg then it's lights out Danny!!
Alex Kidd
Such a shame he was injured, but he might be coming back!
Виктор Ханин
у пирога защита явно лучше чем у головкина
Brielle Smith
If we Swap around their ages and have Jacobs at 30 and Pirog at 23, the older fighter was always going to win. Dmitry Pirog was an awesome fighter but him at 23 fighting a 30 year old Jacobs he would have been stopped also but much earlier. Jacobs is a great fighter and was clearly ahead at the time of the stoppage. A fight with him and Peter Qullin winner vs GGG will be an amazing contest.
Jubal Knight
Dmitry Pirog was offerd to fight Mayweather, he got scared and faked a back injury and retired from boxing, lol just messing about. Pirog is a machine. I swear the ref hated Jacobs
Darren Hopwood
DJ is a very easy nights work for GGG he doesn't possess anything that can keep him off him ZERO
jose soto
Danny was rushed into this fight he wasn't ready at all. He prolly didn't take pirog serious at all. Mistake by golden boy to rush him. At least he didn't take punishment. But he's on the right track now. Let's go danny
Jsroslav Hus
Russ Pettit
Jacobs gets Koed by GGG as well
Anthony Montero
Pirog was impressive that night. I wish he never got injured, he could have really been something
Red Deville
Pirog was so good, damn injuries
Ian G
shame about pirog's injury
Pasha Pasovski
This is middleweight Danny, he fought GGG as a lightheavy weight!
Patrick Michael
the way pyrog fought makes me wanna keep coming back to this fight. he was good.
Alexei Cogan
Golovkin will destroy Jacobs just as quickly on March 18th.
Pirog is a better boxer than ggg...I am a Ward fan but i like this Pirog kid he has something special.Very nice !!
Great knockout. Had to watch that one a hundred time's.
Michael Jung
That was a bad stoppage, Jacobs was ready to stand up and you could see his eyes were fine. Funny how when you do the smart thing and stay down until the 7-8 then stand up, instead of trying to stand up right away, the ref stops it.
Ambitious Papi
Imagine if Golovkin had this head movement....
Forest Gumр
Тут тупо подбородок...Кто занимался знает...Дмитрий-молодец
Martin Guffanti
danny jacobs it's a great boxer and in my opinion he fought very well but dmitry pirog comes from another world
Pirog was an Xlint fighter. He really messed up his back in training and was forced to retire, years ago. Who was he in training for?? GGG!! That would have been a good one...
Igor Pospekhin
Pirog threw 75 punches in Round 2 alone.
Igor Pospekhin
The fight Golovkin vs Pirog would definitely be more competitive than GGG vs Canelo, though I still give a slight edge to Golovkin. If Dmitry comes back in 2016 he will be 35-36 already. But he'd certainly make a stir in middle weight division, would definitely be ranked number 2 next to Golovkin, in my opinion. And if GGG moves up to SMW, Pirog could claim his middle-weight titles.
D Pritch
Actually most top European amateurs fight like this Selimov, Vodopyanov etc. they all have good defense nowadays
Ariel Arreza
Pirog had incredible movement and elusiveness in this fight, he had Jacobs looking a fool unable to land anything substantial. I think his heavy movement style might have contributed to the back injury which is really a shame as I really felt this win had set him up for some big paydays in the coming years. Considering he was willing to vacate his belt to fight GGG, you can bet he wouldn't have been ducking opponents left and right like BJ Saunders.
Nathaniel Domingo
Totally outclassed, with over 200+ amateur fights background and a russian pedigree plus an intelligent boxer too much for an overhyped Jacobs.  A lot of these up and comer boxers should study Pirog or GGG and their footwork, just fascinating to watch... too bad about Pirog who had to retire.. he was set to fight GGG instead of the mandatory defense against Nassam and was stripped of the WBO belt.. that would've been a great contest skill vs.skill although I'd give the edge in power to GGG
Nathaniel Domingo
Pirog was something special - combining Eastern bloc fighting of balanced footwork to set up power shots with American style shoulder roll and head feints and movement defense. Too bad about his back injury because he and GGG were supposed to lock up after he destroyed Jacobs.
Nick Dillon
I hope this ref never worked a sanctioned fight again. You have to finish the ten count before calling that, errible terrible officiating.
Tomasz Madeja
Pirog was a real deal. I love Jacobs face palm after round one. He looked like he never fought guy like this before. Just helpless... My fave KO
