I believe he did the right thing in outboxing Miranda rather then getting involved in a tear up, and I think the criticism leveled at him following that fight was unfair. I believe his tactics before the cut in last nights fight though were a reaction to said criticism, but the fact that he was smart and skilled enough to completely change tactics following the cut showed how far he has come in the last 2 years.
Bellew sacked Mark Quinn about 4 months ago

Let's be honest, after the Ajisafe and Mckenzie fights did you honestly even think he'd go past British level? Everyone was ripping him to shreds on here.

I see him as a fringe world level fighter at the minute, who knows give it another 18 months he may continue to improve and become the world class fighter he believes he can be, he's certainly talented enough.

As for last nights performance I thought it was perfectly acceptable considering the cut, he was far too keen to get his man out of there though, especially early on, when he works behind his jab and uses his intelligence he's a hard man to beat.

great reading

I just don't think he's the fighter people talk him up to be. and when you read things like he's the best technical boxer in the UK, i find statements like this absolutely mind boggling.
Fair response mate.
