I agree he gets hate on here but his power is gonna trouble any British heavy. I would love to see him in against Fury, although that unlikely to happen.

BIG LARRY IS AN EXCITING, DANGEROUS FIGHT. Now that Skelton hasnt got a fight, maybe he sould test himself against him. That would be a good fight

lets be fair here though, Belshaw is crystal chinned and pure cannon fodder.

Like to see Larry up against the likes of Dallas next. Two big lads that can bang.

Exactly, didn't look good at all in his technique. OlaBUMiwo looking decent does not depend on whether his opponent has a china chin or not, it depends on him getting some boxing method drilled into him. That said the British scene is so lacking in talent in the heavies his raw power will possibly be enough to carry him towards title contention. There are not too many you'd bet your house on withstanding him, most would do better than Bumshaw though.

Larry's a nice guy and all but he like he'd been paralyzed when he was coming in, no head movement, nothing. He's really not worth any viewers time, I was there when he succumbed to ****ing Shrek for christ sake.

The Heavyweight Division is a real disgrace at the moment, thank god for people like Adamek and Haye, otherwise there'd be absolutely nothing exciting in the division, certainly not 'up and comers' like this.
Yea i agree with you for the most part there man, tho olubamiwo at 31 despite few fights cant really be called an up and comer (especially on the daniel peret showing) Even a half decent box-puncher like fury or dallas will beat larry he always has a punchers chance but his many technical flaws have been highlighted at the very ealry stages of his career and u gotta feel at his age he doesnt have the time to sort em out unlike fury, dallas, price, ***ton, chisora etc who r younger and more skilled. Not to say theres a world beater in that lot mind! Disgrace may be too far i think domestically theres some exciting fights to come, but the heavy weight scene on the whole is poor apart from the men u mentioned and id chcuk in odliander solis in there 2

The British heavyweight scene looks good at the moment ... some decent prospects ..

Fury , Price , Olub , Dallas and Chisora look a good fivesome ... not sure there world prospects just yet but exciting battles at domestic level ...

Olub looked more like a body builder than boxer and his technique was awful but he sure does have power and seems a good bloke to boot !

Hard to be critical on that performance - better then I've seen before but Belshaw was awful. I'm sure he'll still be moved on at a snails pace considering he isn't exactly young.

I think mobility is a huge problem for larry, if he could get some more footwork he could be a *******...

Larry needs to man up, forget about any aspirations of been a world heavyweight champion and go on a domestic wrecking spree. Then he might have a future. Win some lose some, but probably gain a huge fan base while everyone else is knocking out polish mechanics and slovakian factory workers.
