Yeah, the match vs. Taha will let us know where his level is.  But Gable definitely looked more impressive in his match against KGZ than Taha did against Dhesi.

Man Gable looked great but so does Akgul.  Akgul still looks young and healthy. Can’t wait. 

Imo, the key is who is able to score on their feet.  If Akgul can get a td and transition into a lace, look out.  But right now, I'm changing my pick from months ago and taking Gable...he looked more dominant in the round of 16.

Taha is not a a guy who usually runs up the score. There were times where Geno was wrecking the field and Taha was going by with 3-0, 4-0 scores and then he went on to  beat geno 6-0 in the final.

Thats said if Gable beats Taha comfortably, like a 5-0 thing. Then I think 125 kg is over.

Has Gable ever been straight up punched in the mouth before? I know he got stuck when he attempted to be slick a couple years ago at juniors, but has he ever been in a straight up war?

edit to add: yes I know Cassar took his lunch money. Gable was lazy and cocky, and had never practiced stand ups.

Yes may have looked more dominant but styles make matches. Taha is athletic and can move. Also been there before and very mentally tough.
