Default Barker likely to face Vera/Dzinziruk winner!

Hearn stated this in several Ifilms videos over the past week or so. Tbh I was expecting someone a lot better for Barker in all honesty and don't think either of these pose much threat in all honesty

Thought maybe a title shot?

Vera 3rd WBO I think, maybe trying to get in the mix there?

Nice, American exposure...as I would assume this would be over here?

He should dominate either one, and help wash out the bad taste of the ear drum fiasco. (there are still some idiots labeling him a soft quitter)

Think it's just keeping Darren active and looking for a big fight in summer. He's not fought with regularity for a long while so get him two fights in space of 4 months or so is pretty good for the Darren Anderton of Boxing.

Both a decent fights, Guys who've mixed with good operators. I expect Darren to beat both then line up a big fight in summer. As i said in the Barker vs Lee thread i'd prefer he went after a world title in summer. No time to waste, But i respect this fight he may of said to Eddie let me have another fight because as good as Darren looked against Hope he only just got going in the 3rd round. He probably wants to be taken into later rounds and get cobwebs off for sure.

I may be imagining things but I see signs that Razor might get stopped by Vera. I see Barker taking Lee and Vera taking Dzin.

People in general are bad. I've always said that.

Vera is #2 as of the January 2013 update.

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Dzinziruk is #11 in their 154lb rankings; Barker #11 at super middleweight.

So no matter which one he gets, it's someone who improves his stock with the WBO by at least some increment.

Going after Quillin isn't a bad look for Barker. Maybe the easiest MW champ to stick up (since judges love Geale's workrate, Golovkin is a terrible bastard, and Barker already knows where he stands with Maravilla)

Wait, is Barker vs. Lee in talks? Or you're just saying that's how you'd see it if it was?

...and yeah, Dzyna's day in the sun is over going by the Mantequilla performance. That is one dull, rusty blade.

It is the fifth best sub-forum on the whole site, since McGrain and I began sprucing up.

Well, Dzinziruk vs. Vera is headlining a TV card here this week so I'd presume the victor's next outing would be picked up...maybe WealthTV or Epix or some aught.

****ing hell, people slate Barker for fighting them guys. Before his last fight, he was out of boxing for, what, 18 months? He is not just going to go straight into a world title chase, even though he probably wants it.

Lee was offered the fight but wanted more time with Booth before taking the fight. Think it'll happen in the summer

...Shit. I thought it was a done deal. You might want to double-check me. I'm not too sharp, at the moment. I hope it's happening. I was really looking forward to that.

The guy's becoming a plastic spork, for feck's sake.

That's not what I meant. Yes, it was improved until Boxed Ears was banned. It really took a nosedive after that. I hear Ilesey stopped committing consensual rape on everyone during the time. I can only hope it rebounds.

Not really the kind of fight I was hoping Barker would have had

March 9th would be a bit to soon for these two wouldn't it?

I wonder why they couldn't make Prozska.
