To be honest I think Billy might be a tricky stylistic puzzle for Chris...moreso than what some will be willing to admit.

But in the end John does everything better and I tip his workrate to discourage Billy big time.

Chris takes a few rounds to find his range against the slick Bilal but than pounds a fairly one sided and boring decision much like the Luevano fight.

Chris turns 31 in September having had about 45 fights, Billy's 25 in August with 28 next to his name. Maybe the timing's just right for the slick Bilal to step into the Dragons big shoes...

Chris better have his ribs and liver in good working order after the body attack work Billy's been developing under the guidance of Hussy Hussein as it's fair to say I think Billy might want to tickle Chris there...

Rock, I know it might be easy for me to say this but the Billy who fought Luevano is finished and Chris will face a vastly improved version.

We will see...Id love to see that but what happens in the gym and against mediocre domestic level opposition is one thing..against a seasoned world champ its another.

If Billy is as competitive as he was in the Luevano fight with John then Id actually probably call that an improvement, as I rate Chris a level above Steve.

Good luck to Billy..I think he will make a fine world champ because I think his confidence and personality will help him a lot outside the ring building his profile..But he has to do the job in the ring first.

It's coming together Rock - patience and maturity is coming together for Billy, believe me.

I cant see Dib beating John. He might win a few of the early rounds but John is a class above.

I seriously hope that he's put the Luevano fight behind him and improved out of sight. Some were saying he was the worst fighter they'd seen on HBO, which obviously is unfair. I'd be backing Chris John over Dib, but it's certainly an interesting fight. It's a shame that Asiku doesn't interest you, because that is another great fight right there.

I spoke with him on the phone earlier but couldn't make out much over the excited girly sobs he does every time he calls me.

I agree a great match-up due to the styles and Skinny was an awesome fighter (top bloke as well!) but when you say no love loss between the two I think your a bit off there in that assumption.

Actually, Skinny was at Billy's at a big bbq feed after Billy beat Belandres just recently.
what i'm saying is, put friendship aside and fight!
