what are yo uahppy to see the irish prospects being beaten?

there's one thing that you can never doubt duddy for and that is his heart and chin,with this he is unlikely to get knocked out by anyone outside the top 7-8 and when he wants to box he can box to a very high level,to say he has no skill is really quite demeaning to the way he fought against eastman and also the last 6 rounds against smichet,of course duddy doesnt seem to have the power that we once all thought he does but this doesnt diminish the fact he is a very good boxer,above domestic level and euro level.

i dont mean any disrespect but dunne didnt really look all that great since his fight with pickering,he was beginning to tire and his frame is simply too small for super bantamweight and he doesnt have the skills he thinks he does ... lets hope that the ko from martinez was a blessing in disguise and has made him train harder than ever because one things for sure April 12th is going to the biggest night in his boxing career to date.
