Turpin has a good chin and people can see i've always rated him as a fighter. Strong himself and could really impose himself, punches in bunches that come in behind the jab. This Abraham is a strong and good fighter though, and has serious, serious power. He's definitely got a chance but that jab of Turpin i reckon would be a factor and i'm taking him on that.

Turpin was smart. He could keep his eyes open and avoid the shots he needed to. He had a versatile ****nal and could mix it up when necessary. He'd be able to sneak round the guard and build up points, and then defend well when AA comes out of his shell. He also had a hell of a chin when he was on form. (How he got up from that right hand from Robinson gets me to this day.) He takes a decision.

(At 160 this is.)
