Boxing News did a good article on Luaveno recently and he sounded as if he'd be a handful, and he was far to good for Cook
Exactly David my good man, glad you won yourself some cash, although I would have never bet against one of my own
diff'rent strokes for diff'rent folks I suppose.
As for Luaveno, Im disappointed ESB went down as I had a big conversation about him a while back with the much loved wee mexican fella Freddywak, cos Harrison was rumoured to be fighting him. I have two Luaveno fights, but I decided to keep quiet about his fight with Cook as I seen Luaveno as the american version of Nicky Cook, flashy record but untested. However, when it comes to american prospect vs British prospect, 9 out of 10 times the american prospect will win, due to superior training, sparring etc.
My gloat was just on a personal level as a certain James Wilson couldnt get enough of telling me how Nicky Cook would have spanked Scott Harrison for as long as I can remember.
Im enjoying his silence now, cos thats how I roll
