Default Re: Bunce beefing the BN Team on Twitter

So what if they picked Lacy? At the time he was a very good fighter who was obliterating opponents and had alot of good attributes. When he was in a close fight against Vanderpool who was a decent boxer he knocked him out.
The problem was, at that time Joe was hardly facing anyone worthy, his career had stagnated.
We knew Joe was good, but how good?, had he got complacent? Hindsight is a wonderful thing, it's easy to look back and say "OH YOU PICKED THAT FIGHT" We're all gonna pick'em wide of the mark.

That's boxing, when two fighters step in that ring anything can happen. It's not just chins that are tested but every other mental attribute. Looking back, Joe was one of the most natural boxers we have had the pleasure to watch on these shores, but sadly his career didn't see him face the competition he should have been in with.
