Dont be starting your numbers games' or else il private message DFTaylor and tell him about it.

It would be ridiculous if it DIDNT make more money in London. Ireland is a country with half the population of London and theres stacks of irish there to buy tickets as well as Barker fans

imo there's a small chance andy lee overlooks fitzey in a couple of weeks, he will at least make it an uncomfortable night for lee.

Darren Barker is another over-rated Brit boxer.

that fight would make sense.

didnt Eddie Hearn tweet recently enough that he was planning on putting a show on in the south of Ireland.

i know John Ryders father is irish as well. So id imagine he'd put him onto the card also.

Personally, id love some proper big time boxing to be back in Ireland. Since the heady days of Bernard Dunne its gotten very quite over here.

He's better than any irish boxer by quite some margin. And he'd batter Andy Lee.

Good fight (if it ever happens) Its about time some of the top middleweights in Eire and UK locked horns. Think most fans are getting fed up of these lads ignoring eachother. 50/50 conteset. Macklin fights and stops the winner

Barker should win, barring Lee landing a knockout punch. That's possible.

But skills wise, as a professional Barker is a lot more impressive. He puts his punches together more fluidly, Lee is incredibly stiff and throws everything off his jab. Has no defence except for legs.
