Well Duddy is 30.

Ricky Hatton is 30 FFS - Duddy has done absolutely nothing by comparison

Lee is what, 26?

I know it was an upset and all, but potentially world class fighters don't get KTFO by Brian Vera. Perhaps he will surprise me, I don't know, but I cannot see it.

I don't see them going anywhere anytime soon to be honest either.

Clottey will look back on his performance with Cotto and take some real positives from the fight. He knows what he has to do and where it went wrong.

Mosley put in one of the most inspired performances of his life last time out but taking nothing away from him, Margarito's head couldn't have been right knowing the drama which was ahead of him.

If I got a decent price on Clottey I'd pick him.

I can see Lee MAYBE progressing but Duddy is what he is.

Duddy is a dud and Lee isn't much better at the top level, just somewhat more talented.

As for Mosley/Clottey it would be competitive but clear for Mosley just like every other Clottey fight against a top opponent. Clottey starts well, falls asleep, Shane outworks him for the decision.

I hate to use the word, but Clottey was exposed in the Margarito fight for exactly that reason.

He got away with it against Judah because Zab always fades...... Mosley wouldn't.

like he should've learnt from the margarito performance? oh don't tell me he had an injury

to quate some rapper "you are who you are player" not finishing a fight is clottey's major character flaw, it's like a super hero who's affraid of heights. He couldn't do it in his biggest fight with a busted up Cotto ripe for the picking, the dude punches on a limited budget like he's on one of those computer games where your "life" drops the more you punch, he better hope Shane gets injured or something even then Clottey won't go for kill, killer instinct is not something one can turn on and off like a tap, you don't just find it over night either.

Mosley can do everything Clottey does but better and with more speed. People will point to Clottey's ruggedness but Mosley is more than happy to get into the trenches when he needs to. Clottey is lazy and will be made to look bad when Mosley is throwing fast accurate punches. The Mosley that turned up for Margarito fight should win handily but I just wonder if he can get that motivated for a fight with Clottey. That would be my main concern for Shane as this isn't the mega fight he was hoping for.

^ motivation is never a problem with sugar shane, especially considering he's having financial troubles, he recently got divorced from his korean wife and manager Jin and apparently she's been fleecing his bank account.

You have to take your hat off to him in the build for the Maragrito fight with all that going on, plus the steroid scandal going on too.

Don't know what you mean? That's from Halloween, John Carpenters finest piece of film making and quite frankly a directing masterpiece.
