Claus Bertino has been added to the line-up, 32 year old Dane who is 15-4 and has lost to some complete unknowns.

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

I have heard from several people in the know that Skelton will be the final name on the list though this hasn't been confirmed yet.

This is looking pretty poor overall. Travis Walker's to lose.

Why does everyone seem to think Walker will "walk" this, he's got nothing going for him apart from his power, I just watched the Leapai fight he's got no defence and gasses by the second round, Harrison or Lewison will win this.

...because the rest of the field has every bit as little going for them, minus the power.

If anyone other than Walker is winning this, it's Rogan, Sosnowski or Skelton, guys who can make a fight messy and s**** to a decision over 3 rounds. Lazy, glass-jawed Audley has no chance, Lewison is an unknown quantity somewhat and his pro career to date is poor.

He's got the weakest chin, worst defence and can't finish
(Adamek, Arreola, Leapai) don't be doubting Audley, I can understand why you don't expect much from him, watch the second Williams and Hersisia fights.
He started fast and came forward in those fights and look at the outcome.

Lewison is a novice in the pro's but was a top am. If he comes in around 230/240 he will be all sorts of trouble.

Lewison is taking this seriously and if he's in shape he will give anyone a nightmare.

But saying Audley's got glass when you got Walker and Sosnowski in the same sentence is a joke.

Those fights were AGES ago and are not indicative of his fighting style overall. His fanboys always point to those two fights while ignoring the fact that the rest of his career has been trash.

I'm aware that Lewison has started to take the fight game seriously over the last few months and looked impressive last time out but has not mixed with anyone near Walker's level yet. Again his amateur achievements were a while ago. Bertino also had a good amateur career, better than Lewison's in fact, and he too has struggled in the pros and, like Lewison, is rightly an outsider to win it.

Since when was Sosnowski's chin glass? Getting KO'd by Vitali in the 10th and Dimitrenko in the 12th does not constitute glass.

Walker's chin is glass but unlike anyone else here, he has given good fights to fringe world level opposition over the last couple of years. Audley has NEVER done this.

When was the last time Walker performed? Anyway im not here to argue, Audley is still in great shape and is not shot yet, he turned pro late and haven't took huge beatings like Danny Williams etc... It's understandable not expecting much of him, But saying Walker is better than him in any department is stupid.

Walkers Best wins are Estrada (SD) and Meehan (Who Williams Stopped in a round) Danny Williams, Sprott at 230lbs and Hersisia are better than both of them wins by far.

Sosnowski was sparked a couple of times early in his career and Zuri Lawrence 0% Ko had him in trouble and schooled him.

They're 3 round fights.

Its perfect for him.

Also,he tends to only get beaten by elite HW's

And the guys in this tournament are washed up journey men.

Walker rocked and almost finished Adamek in his last fight.

Audley Harrison is fresh off being KO'd in 1 by Price,and is now 41.

Timo Hoffman was a Euro level fighter in his prime,and hes years past that.

Martin Rogan,as much as I like the guy,is a 41 year old Belfast cab driver. I dont mean cab driver in the "can" or "bum" meaning of the word. The guy is literally a cab driver.

Sosnowski recently drew with THIS guy. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

I dont even know who Claus Bertino is.

That goes double for Lewison.

So Walker is a borderline fringe contender type fighter. Legit power. Suited to short fights.

The rest are washed up journey men, and never will be fighters.

How can you NOT think Walker is a huge favorite
