And Kessler won every fight convincingly........ also doesn't have a History of Ducking the hard fights like Mundine. Mundine has been offered the shot at Kessler's Title/Titles twice and knocked him back.......and then goes crying that Kessler is avoiding him. Given Mundine's past history,there is absolutely no way that Mundine will fight either Kessler or Calzaghe till there is no available option.
It's the Nuthuggers who say that Green was ratshit....... not me.
Echols was gone by the time he fought Mundine......
Since his comeback fight ....... Echols has won 2 from 7
and those 2 were against opponents who have won 1 from 10 and 2 from 10 in their last 10 fights......Hardly a glowing endorsement.
And Mundine fought Echols in his first comeback fight after layoff when Echols would have been at his worst.
That leaves Soliman.
