Default Paul appleby

British champion at 20 . Beat up by lyndsay away from home in a hostile environent . Does any 1 else think he was stepped up too quickly .

I know ****** gets stick for being too cautious ( I agree ) but I think gilmour has went the other way , and mismanaged a good prospect .

Appleby is still a good prospect who was simply beaten by a better man on the night

He will learn from the experiance

hes probably learned more from t hat loss than his previous 5 wins

From where I standing at in the hall, Appleby looked badly hurt but in truth I was hoping the ref would have let the fight go a little longer so Lindsay could have KOed Appleby cleanly. I was hating Appleby that night I dont know why, I didnt feel like that before the fight, but when I became part of that crazy crowd cheering for Applebys blood I changed while in the hall. Belfast can do that to you, so I was glad to get home to peaceful and quiet Dundalk.

Hype got in the way of building up a decent prospect.

I think it was muted that he got 100k to fight in Belfast...

That is serious till for a British title defence at 20 years of age...Money he could not turn down if it was true...

He will come again.. I thought boxed the wrong fight and was drawn in far to easy....

It is easy to see why they rolled the dice with the fight in Belfast...I am not a fan of the Euro title as many fighters will side step the British Title to try and get the ratings off the Euro title and get them onto a World stage for an alphabet World Title....

But I understand for the fighters it is about making money and securing good paydays to support their families...

Lindsay is a decent little fighter and beats Appleby every day of the week. Support on this board for Appleby took on almost mythic proportions after beating an average Simpson, the lad will earn a living, but he will never hit the heights.

Id back Simpson to beat Lindsay fairly comfortably (and Appleby outside of belfast)

Simpson has a very decieving record that has a few dodgy results against him (especially his clear cut win against Dazzo imo)

Simpson vs Lindsay would be a very good fight and pretty much 50/50 where ever it took place.
