Re: Iran Barkley vs Julian Jackson At MW
Pretty simple for me. Two tough bangers, and one of 'em is not just a puncher but one of the hardest ever.
Barkley was hurt enough througout his career so despite his size, strength and immeasurable toughness I think he can feasibly come off worse in a shootout here. I agree with Magna, Iran would have to come out bombing or gets timed, so either way he's in the firing line.
Barkley has a punchers chance. It would have to be a carbon copy of the Hearns fight, with Iran being lit up and landing a peach. Jackson likely wrecks him. Jackson did a few rounds with one eye against G-Man so I think he can hurt Barkley prime for prime worse than 'The Blade' hurts him. Simple as that really, Jackson wasn't made of china like some would have you believe, he protested the stoppage against McCallum and was more overwhelmed. Barkley was dropped and badly hurt by Sims and Duran and knocked around by Benn, a comparable but inferior pure puncher to Jackson IMO.
Probably a bit like the Baek fight.
