That's really cool man. Have you sparred with many other higher profile guys over the years? Who was the hardest guy to spar against

Done heaps of rounds with mundine and pitman. Spared a lot of rounds with Jessie Felinciano when I trained in Vegas. Sakio is the hardest just strong and relentless choc is lightning quick. Allgood blokes too.

I won't argue as I respect you opinion. Never thought that much of Bailey tbh. He lost nearly all the big fights he was in but always stold a punchers chance.

His KO over mike Jones was heavy, I rate that.

I think I remember you saying you spared Gealey a bit too? How would you compare his speed with choc? I did a few rounds with geale when I was in my teens and he was at the end of his amateur career. I just found he was an incredibly likeable and humble bloke.

Mate I respect your opinion too. I've never spared with geale would of liked to never got the chance. Choc is the quickest guy I've sparred and I spared some really fast welters in the us to give an indication of how quick choc is he was faster then those guys.
Geale has to start heavy favorite against choc but if choc pulls it out ofthe bag it wouldn't surprise me at all.

Hey Crusher , What weight do you think Choc was best at ? IMO 168lbs was a little too ambitious for him despite solid performances v the likes of Green & Kessker at the weight , maybe middle ?

168 but only because he was younger he should just started his career at 160. He would of beat the likes of Abraham if he got him to fight in oz.

After the Miranda fight I never rated Abraham mate da panther got bent over in that one , I see what you are saying and yes it might have been a wiser route for Choc to have started out at middle then moved north as his filled out his frame , my only gripe with Mundine is post Kessker he always chose the softer option , it was like he knew the level he had found and was content earning the money there, I was surprised he took this fight with Geale to be honest .
