Billy is a bloody good boxer but I'm sure he keeps Billy Hussein's heart in his mouth sometimes (like when he drops his hands and begins to sway). What I have noticed though, is that this is a sign of him felling quite relaxed and more often than not, this leads to a flurry of punches or some incredible movement. Another of Billy's skills that seem to be missed a lot, is his ability to make opponents miss with his flexibility and body movement. he may get tagged occasionally but gee, he makes the opposition miss a great deal. It's good to see him using more power and having something new to him...patience. I hope it is a great year ahead for him. I have written before of him coming across as a good person, I suppose the way he showed concern for Belandres after the fight was testimony to that. i hope more people get behind him rather than just have a go. Good work Contendo, it seems like Billy Dib has a great team around him.
Thanks Wrangler for the kind sentiments for Billy. Billy's rolling the right way and it's a good start for the year. Next bout announcement shortly and on another great Grange Old School Boxing card!
