Default Re: the what fights did you watch today\scorecard thread.

I rate Starling a notch or two above him myself, though i was a fan of Brown before he roboticised.

I'd compare the fight with starling for him to something like Kalule vs kalambay(for kalambay) in that he was a bit rough ring-generalship wise and not quite 100% clued in as to when to bring in all his tools to their greatest effect, and thus ended up fighting an overly respectful fight against a difficult talented style, but was already more or less very good and would have beaten the majority of other fighters in the division that night.

I think he'd do better in a rematch and it would be a more action packed ring-centre sort of fight, but still a 2-4 points loss as long as Starling was at\near his best.
