Back to Witter....if he can get a rematch against Bradley then it would be worth a shot, its not as if it was a one sided fight but if not at 34 its a looooong way back through the Euro route.

Yes unfortunately it does, we can only concentrate for so long these days and if we dont see adverts every 11mins and get our daily top up of 'prop o ganda' we get restless. Hatton got beat by floyd, a baby who runs from cotto making hatton indirectly a chicken, skilless and washed up. Who has hatton ever fought? He has faced 'ducking' mayweather and got beaten, he is not undefeated anymore and thus rubbish and overhyped. If you lost to mayweather you can lose to anyone.

There are many excuses I could make, the referee how the fight was judged etc etc.The reality is that I performed at 70% of my capability and Bradley fought the fight of his career.He took his chance and scored the knockdown which turned the fight around.

I have been asked by many if there was a rematch clause and if was I looking past Bradley and focusing on Hatton and did I underestimate him.I had the choice of adding a rematch clause but I have never believed in giving myself a safety net,so there was no clause.My promoter is working on a return fight with Bradley if this doesnt happen I will fight my way back in to contention.

I prepared 100% for the fight unfortunately I got it wrong on the night,I believe if I had hit my peak on the night as I did against Harris the outcome would have been different.Its a hard and expensive lesson to learn but it will make me a stronger fighter.

I will be taking a break before resuming training in June,I told my promoter I want to fight the first available date in September.

Junior Witter will be back.



CMON JUNIOR YOU BLACK PEARL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


all his fans???

Junior 'the shitter' Witter is done.

Say goodbye guys to the never was in Junior Witter, one of the greatest fighters of all time whose greatest victories came over a shot Corley and an even shitter fighter in Harris

Couldn't agree more...those scorecards were inappropriately close, Bradley deserved a wider margin.

Good to see Witter sticking up for the new champion

I think the only gripe he could have is the referee not deducting a point from Bradley, which would have given him an undeserved draw.

But had one of the judges only had two or three pints as opposed to fifteen, he would have scored it 116-112 to Bradders anyway

Alright Lads, I KNOW I haven't been on for a while, thats due to me having a operation on my spine and me just getting out of hospital on tuesday. But what do u think witters next option will be because it was a dire performance, and if he did get in the ring with hatton like that I am sorry to say it would be the same result. Just one quick analysis is it me or when the pressure is on witter he freezes.

He seems to lack 'gears'

When he needs to step it up he just doesn't seem to be able to, IMO

He likes to fight his fight, at his pace

Spot on trotter - even the Harris fight was the same.

OK he won by KO, but it took a damn sight longer than it should have done, he should have had him out of there within four really - a guy like Hatton would have done.

That is the main difference - Witter doesn't quite have the brains for it, either to sense that he is losing, or that his opponent is ready to be taken out.
