at this point i'd say fewkes, just for his step-up performance against Tontchev.

i like ando, he put on a good performance against magee this year, but he made his debut over 4 years ago. he can't really be considered a rookie in the same way as fewkes, cleverly and belshaw are.

edit: i just remembered that fewkes has been a pro for a few years as well, just not very active...

Fewkes. Firstly, because of his quality performances as of late particularly against Tontchev. Secondly, abit of Yorkshire bias

From that list it has to be Sheffield's John Fewkes for me. Unbeaten and has just come off a career best victory against a former european champion.

Was being talked about as a possible opponent for Khan in October - not to be but could see this match-up in the future.

if he beats andy morris on friday what about john simpson? that is my biased opinion obviously but he has did well narrowly losing to derry matthews and stropping ryan barett if he can add andy morris to that list for a 2nd time then why not?

though as much as i ahte to say it i think amir khan probarly deserves it.

also for next years anyone think paul appleby could be a contender for young boxer of the year 2008?

He looks very impressive early on, I have a bad feeling about the true extent of his potential though.

Hi,

How good is Scott Belshaw???

I have heard that he is a tall heavyweight.

Is he a puncher? Good jab? Stylewise is he
more like Foreman or Ali?

Any more British Heavyweight prospects that
you know of?

Grebfan9


PS - wish I had all of you guys posting on my new
boxing message board. Just getting started up with
it. You guys are really knowledgeable!!!

Really felt for Simpson in that Matthews bout and hope he does well this Friday.

I know Appleby is another young scottish featherweight like Simpson -
how highly do you rate him?

Thanks for posting the clips.

Looks like a good prospect - will look out for him in the future.

Well what impresses people most is the variety of punches he throws. The way he'll siwtch to the body, then back to the head, throwing from all different angles. It is somewhat unusual in such a young fighter.

However these combinations come when his opponents go into their shell only.

The rest of the time he throws one shot at a time.

His speed is ok, not great. They seem to lack that bit of snap.

Accuracy very good so far.

Head movement etc are all good - but he is trained by a top trainer.

Dont you think this could be something he can learn as he is only 19 remember?

I think he could be the next best thing to come out of scotland after scott harrison if he keeps learning the way he is. if you look at the clips from even his 3rd fight and the fight against nagy you can see the vast improvment already. I think him along with craig mcewan who is in america learning his trade and is with golden boy promotions can really put scotland back on the world stage again in years to come. Have you seen much of craig mcewan CHJ?

I think no.11 is being bit generous!!

he hasnt fought anyone even european class never mind world class! Simpson and Foster are good domestic fighters but thats the best hes fought so i think you could be right about ******. sport is becoming far too corrupt for my liking no wonder alot of people are more interested in UFC now.
