Witter's style had similar problems in his career too and yet you were accusing him of ducking Ajose so you are over biased for him which I guess is understandable since you worked with him.
I know Witter did duck Ajose. Ajose was his commonwealth mandatory contender for a while but they chose not to have the fight. Biased I may be but then you cannot be disspassionate about your fighter. When Witter lost to Bradley they finally enquired about fighting Ajose and when a counter offer was made they went silent so read into that what you may. I am not saying Witter was not avoided in his day either but he was definitewly beatable by the right guys.
Well you can always say perhaps he should have gone to America at the begin like Samuel Peter. I am not sure but the boys who go to the states seem to get more opportunity. Lateef the Power Kayode fought Antonio Tarver at the weekend. Great exposure with both guys coming out with credit.
