Has Thompson improved a fair bit then?

Can't say I've seen him for a long while.

I've never seen Byrne fight, is he any good?, any chance of him pulling off the upset?

Agreed. Espicially after the stoppage in Germany he was doing really well.

No.

Can't see it going past 3, wouldn't be surprised if it didn't go past the first.

Well that's disappointing... still at least Jones is getting a fight I guess.

Not sure that's fair. He had quite a few issues in the lead up to his loss against Horta, and he'll be the first to admit he just wasn't there in the follow up defeat.

I always get annoyed when people talk about 'pedigree' when an actual career shows little, but the boy clearly has some talent - was a regular in the Wild Card a few years back sparring big names. Like I said, he didn't hadn't fought for a year, beat somebody, and then a week later jumped in to fight Horta after Gavin pulled out, and was beaten.

I'm not saying the lad is a world beater, but he's not a bum like some people seem to be thinking.
