I think Price v Thompson should be a good guage for the big fella. TBH I think Fury is more hype than talent but he has impoved vastly since uppercutting himself a few years back

Hoping Kell puts Devon on his backside and takes the title. He is a likable young boxer

Bang on again regarding Price mate and regarding Fury well ?
Since Ty's dad went away I see he has become more focused and for a huge bloke he has got himself into fantastic nick , so much so if he caught himself with a self inflicted uppercut like that again he would have to take a ****ing knee lol .
Gotta run lads ( looks like I'm building a snowman in the morning with the grandson ,**** sakes ))

How do you think your boy Kell Brooke is going to fair against Alexander in Detroit? I think he will have to put on a top proformance to take the title in that one. Devon seems to get the nod in all the close fights his been invloved in recently, especially the Matthyse fight.

I think 2013 will be a big year for Brithish boxing with Fury, Price, Brook and Frampton to make a splash. I am enjoying watching Frampton progress as a young fighter, he is comming along well at this stage. Watched his win over Molitor the other month and was very impressed. He is a compact little dynamo
Disagree think Kessler is taking Froch's belt. Burns is having a unification fight with Vasquez and Murrays fighting ***y. They lose all 3 IMO.

It amazes me what people choose to see sometimes. Froch was the dirty fighter in that fight, rabbit punches and holding. Dirrell went to the ground, what 3 times? Froch outright wrestled with him and threw him on the ground out of frustration after not being able to land anything other than rabbit punches in the clinch. Also lol at anybody who thought Dirrell was acting against Abraham, I suggest you research some of the effects of concussion if you think him acting like a baby afterwards was intentional.

He was straight up acting like a bitch in the AA fight. He looked up at the ref for a moment before putting on an award winning performance. Each to their own, but imo he put that shit on.

I don't see where he's looking at the ref, his head goes backwards after he's hit and then he slumps over. Concussion is complicated, it can be delayed and you can only be out for a split second and still do things instinctively without conscious control. Abraham is a heavy puncher and landed on his chin while he wasn't looking and on his knees. Dirrell didn't do a damn thing wrong in that fight and he gets treated like the villain. People don't understand concussion and think they can judge if someone is faking or not. Maybe Dirrell did play it up but even if he did he did nothing wrong, Abraham took the cheap shot so all the vitriol should be aimed at the cheater who was clearly losing the fight.

This crap about beating the champ convincingly to win the belt is rubbish. If that was the case Sylvester should've held his belt against Geale going on that theory.

A fight should be judged rd by rd.... If it's a close rd and the scorer doesn't want to give it a 10-10 score maybe he can take into account who is the champ, but my personal opinion is judging each rd on it's own merits regardless of who is champ.
100 % agree. If Dirrell just scraps through to win a round then he ****in gets the round 10-9. You don't give the champ a round 10-9 is he didn't win it, that is corruption. If it's genuinely an even rd and you can't separate them then score it even you don't give it to the champ just because he is the champ.

My bad. It had been a while since i watched the fight. He looked up at AA before slumping to the ground and rolling around. IMO he faked it, we might disagree but that my honest opinion. AA was losing the fight but he was comming on strong in the later rounds. I just felt at the time watching the fight Dirrell took the easy way out. Nothing against you, thats my view on the matter.
