Default Re: Crolla has only one decision to make...

It's a shame what happened with Graham, though I don't think he helped himself by working exclusively with Ricky, and also allowing himself to be typecast in the way that he prepared his fighters.

Some of the advice he gave Hatton in the corner against Floyd was bang on, work the jab to the body and try to operate at mid-range, and before the fight he was regularly saying how good Floyd was on the inside - which is contrary to how many people viewed him at the time, as basically a little sissy who didn't fancy it.

When you see clowns like Vince Cleverly overseeing world title fights and other pretty poor trainers just wafting the towel in domestic fights..... he is a bit of a loss to the game, both in terms of his ability and also being a character.
