Selby & Ward are our only really top class guys. Nevin is good but is small at the weight, so is Evans. Beyond Ward lightheavy is weak & heavyweight is worse.

We dont have the same depth as the best teams & I reckon we'll struggle in the knockout phase.

Tbf we're doing well for our first year in WSB, its good experience for our lads.

I thought the WSB could be a challenge to pro boxing but having seen all the Lionhearts matches so far, if I'm honest, I find it all a bit boring. Repetitive fights with virtually no chance of a stoppage or knockout. There will be more action in any one of the live fights tonight on Boxnation than in any of those fights last night. Give me the pro game anytime.

I'm sure you're right but there will be stoppages on the card or at least the chance of a stoppage. The fights involving Murphy and MacPhilbin should be full of action. Maybe I'm not a purist.

I'm enjoying the WSB and there's some great talent there, but I agree that some of the fights have been slightly dull. I think that's the result of prospects fighting in a cagey manner because they're matched against opposition of a similar level. I still think it's an interesting and original tournament with some good fighters and I'll continue to tune in.
