Sup.
I wasn't at the show so I can't really offer much analysis.
I will say that a man with Kris record is unlikely to get any favourable treatment from a referee when boxing a 5-0 prospect as an away fighter.
I think we would all expect Whyatt to shout robbery regardless of the circumstances as I imagine he is a bit embarrassed losing to a journeyman at home.
Kris posted a few pics after the bout, he looked as if he hadn't even boxed so I don't think he was hit with much.

It said everything that in his last fight, when he had plenty of notice of who his opponent was going to be, Peter Buckley won with ease.

Aye i get you, TBH Craig is a arm puncher not to be nasty to the lad as i remember him as a lil kid in gym he's come a long way but he doesn't punch that hard.

I feel same way it's odd a journeyman gets nod over a 5-0 prospect but the Boxrec article said it was a robbery which is why i asked as it wasn't just him and his fans moaning. ''Referee Robert Williams controversially scores 38-39 for Laight - BoxRec News didn't agree, and thought Whyatt was slow to start but deserved it 40-37.''

Good luck to Kristian though he's a tough man. Hate to see records like his but you can't run without guys like him and it's not his fault a lot of the time.

I'm SPB btw in case you wondered why i'm butting in .

What's this mean mate?..

Craig forces his work from what i've seen. Maybe nerves, maybe a little stiff but he doesn't get the leverage on the punches he should.

TBH seeing him as a kid to now he's done great i remember training with the lad when i was a kid but i stand by my statement which wasn't that he has no power it was ''he doesn't punch that hard''. His record shows and his fights that's he doesn't punch as hard as other Lightweights out there. No shame in it...

He would hurt more people if he had more smoothness in his punches. Sitting on his punches, Rotation of the hips, Turning over of the glove. Notice with Craig he he's a little like Scott Harrison is at the moment. Bit tense and he's forcing the punches out and power comes when your nice and relaxed and timing punches.

What about Rose Hill

Facts are facts and the video isn't only one that displays that Craig isn't a big puncher. Not sure what's the issue anyways, He clearly isn't a banger mate. He's a guy with a engine and volume.

Dismissing him?. I just don't think he's a puncher. I haven't said he's crap, Haven't said he's a mess when he fights. I just said he doesn't punch that hard.

No shame in that, Lenny Daws another boy from the area doesn't but his engine and volume and will to win grinds opponents down. Some world class guys don't punch that hard.

I think Craig's power will improve when he settles down in ring and improves his technique. He's a developing fighter..
