Default Re: Maccarinelli vs Braithwaite

I agree, this is a great win but he needs to build on this. Fight someone like Ding, Adamek, Cunningham, Tokarev, Coba Jr, someone really top level. He needs to build on this.

he boxed well, displayed a great jab lots of ring smarts and patience. Braithwaite was very disappointing, he just couldn't get into the fight at all. In fairness I think that Mac should've taken him out, I'm disappointed he couldn't have forced a stoppage. Braithwaite didn't seem to have too much trouble taking Mac's power.

I know its not fair to say this but I think David Haye would've bombed Braithwaite out in less than 3 rounds myself. Braithwaite looked poor all the way through the fight, a pale imitation of his former self. Maccarinelli fought well, but this hasn't convinced me.
