Dmitry Pirog vs Danny Jacobs.

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

Pirog had so much swag in his style man, looks really confident and slick
Kwame Johnson
I've never seen a Russian pressure fighter fight this well. Let's start a GoFundMe to get Pirog a back transplant! :-(
Damn you herniated disk!  Pirog vs GGG would have been a classic.
Steward commenting is music to my ears.
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.
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
Catchnelo, give me my fight.
this guy that got starched is the same guy that wants 60/40 split against GGG 😂😂😂
The judges were trippin.
Anthony Montero
Pirog was impressive that night. I wish he never got injured, he could have really been something
Станислав Адамов
Pirog could be top fighter now, bad luck
Benji Ramirez
old school russian style... this was not boxing, this was ART!
Hell of a fighter. The MW division could've used Pirog these past few years. Damn shame.
Scientia Ac Labore
From Russia with KO punch...
The Big Dog
Pirog is a joy to watch. Such an interesting style. Very calculated. Damn shame the way his career turned out.
Justin Boseman
I wish Pirog was still fighting......he'd give GGG or anyone else problems at 160.......very talented
Валерий НВП
Пирог отличный боец!!!! Техника боя замечательная,шахматист на ринге...словно жанглирует ...защита...нападение, классно...
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.
Wow, what a great body/head movement 19:08
Ste Dunn
What a huge loss for the boxing world to use this man to injury!
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.
Kaisur Khan
Such a shame with pirog,could have been a great fighter
Andres Kiani
Jacobs is such a classy man. Hats off to him.
jacobs could of got up they didn't let him up..
Koolaid Kangz
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.
Jacobs lost every single round and got destroyed
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
Will Walsh
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.

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.
Pirog was amazing fighter! GGG vs Pirog would be fire.....
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
Joey L
Holy, moly, great knockout!
Soft stoppage. Wanted to see Pirog out box him for another couple of rounds
Pirog is a better boxer than ggg...I am a Ward fan but i like this Pirog kid he has something special.Very nice !!
Bill B.
Pirog vs. GGG would be such a fun fight. Too bad Pirog's back betrayed him.
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.
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.
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
Damn... Pirog vs GGG would have been great fight. Pirog had an exceptional body movement, a treat to watch.
duane ford, cj ross , both crockshits were not needed that night.. imagine if pirog didnt ko, i bet he would have been robbed lol.
Veridicus Maximus
Man, I miss Emmanuel Stewart!
The Boxer
GGG will KO Jacobs within 5-6 rounds. He does not stand a chance against the Kastanien. I like Jacobs but once Golovkin catches Jacobs w/ a right cross, it will be over. Lights out!
Pirog  vs  GGG = fireworks
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.
Huwaylaan Ore
A MASTER OF SHIFTING and I would say the second best in shifting at present is Golovkin.
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
Ruslan Tatarinov
аж челюсть слышно было как треснула....5 раунд...dawn
Alexander Tilinin
Best Best Best !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
El Casimiro
Jacobs dropped like a sack of potatoes and I see him the same today no improvement.
Cesar Flores
Damn what happened with Pirog? Could of gone on to do great things.
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 :(
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!
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.
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
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
Виктор Ханин
у пирога защита явно лучше чем у головкина
GGG will do the same to Jacobs.
Bryan Ibarra
GGG vs no chin Jacobs might end like this for sure.
Belzebù-usa, former mr. india रुस्तमे-हिंद
24:22 *What a setup, what an angle, the shifting, what a mo/fkn power shot* . This powershot could have destroyed a tank, who the hell is Danny Jacobs
Beside Golovkin the best European Middleweightfighter. So sad that he had such a bad back injury. 24:25 Booom
Mike Johnson
Jacobs seems like a good kid, but you've got to say his management had a lot to do with this KO loss. Emmanuel looked at Pirog for 30 seconds and saw that he was special and took one look at Jacobs and knew he was frightened. Take the loss and no excuses. Pirog was just the better man.
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.
Pasha Pasovski
He is a good boy...Danny! Danny don't fight GGG, you are getting hurt for real, this time !
Respect to both guy's but especially Jacob's being so composed, gracious and mature during the post fight.
CSM. HB J-dogg
GGG is Lucky Pirog was about to clean him up next and Jacobs had cancer then
Ivaylo Ivanov
Unique fighter, in my opinion good and Kovalev and Golovkin, but of course the Russian style is unique! Спасибо Пирог!
Brian Koulen
Jacobs wasn't KO he was knocked down, the referee stopped the fight when Jacobs was about to get up at the count of 3
metelgear soft
pirog was far better than ggg
Gerard Vous
GGG-Jacobs will have a similar end. GGG is too strong for this guy.
Jsroslav Hus
Shame about pirog back injury. He would beat GGG and Mayweather
stephen tarr
weird watching a Russian with that style
damn pirog had nice ass defense, also aggressive in offense with ko power. sad he's gone
Mr Grandi
If Pirog was still around in boxing he would have beat GGG
Whatever happened to Pirog, I see that boxrec says he has not fought a about 3 years? wtf
Russ Pettit
Jacobs gets Koed by GGG as well
80" Reach
ggg will ko Danny if he fights like this
Does someone know why the referee put down Jacobs in the middle of the counting? is that normal?
FreeWorldTravel .TV
I feel sorry for him taking the ggg fight, he doesn't stand a chance.
Lol Jacobs would have gotten up, the ref pushed him back down and said it's over! Very suspect
Alex Kidd
Such a shame he was injured, but he might be coming back!
Gear Bangin
what's sad is that if he hadn't knocked out Jacobs, He would have been robbed by the Judges
Арман Форево
Красавчик Пирог
antonio montano
5 rounds with ggg then it's lights out Danny!!
Legendary Prince
For the people who keep bringing up the Ishida fight let me explain boxing for you. STYLES MAKE FIGHTS ! Pirog went the distance with Ishida & GGG knocked him out. But what does that have to do with there match up ? Manny stopped De La Hoya in 8. Floyd won a spilt decision, but what happened when Manny and Floyd fought ?
Максим Крюков
Пирог доминировал! У Джейкобса не было шансов! Отличная скорость и не менее отличная защита! Красивый бокс от Димы! Если б Пирог захотел, все бы закончилось во 2 раунде
John Galtman zzz
Джейкобс был тогда зеленым, еще и раком болел. Сейчас он намного лучше и сильней. Уверен, что даст бой Гене.
Danny is a dirty fighter. Glad he got KO'd!
James Bra
Danny Jacobs will fight in orthodox and then southpaw. His boxing mind apparently never learned to switch between them to gain momentum. Pirog switches not just to confuse his opponent, but to also gain knockout momentum.
Andrey Okonel
Ахуеть просто😱👍🏻
Zach Brantley
Dmitry Pirog vs Gennady Golovkin would've been a epic fight. Was supposed to happen in 2012 but Pirog got injured and promptly retired.
Joseph McCaffrey
He would have been knocked out cold 1 minute later.
Stephen Battle
Pirog would beat canelo and ggg
El Americano
What happened to Pirog? Back problems? Rough anti Pirog cards at the time of the KO. Jacobs doesn't stand a chance v GGG.
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...
Alex Tararikin
Pirog is a great fighter. Golovkins suck
Артур Баранов
Дорогие мои болельщики. Скоро 18 марта смотрите как GGG будет хавать Джейкобса. Не упустите такой шанс и пожелайте Гене приятного аппетита. Казахстан Алга!!! Гена порви всех, мир ждёт твоих побед!
Sam Shepard
Pirog is the best fight Jacobs has fought and he lost. not much else on his resume. GGG will break him down and hurt him.
Frank W
Look like he could beat the count, should have let Jacobs gotten up.
mark _e_dasod
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
We were really robbed of a great all time fight in Pirog vs GGG. Worked out well for GGG because i think Pirog would have beaten him.
