Default darren barker

When is this lad going to get a step up in class? I would like to see him stepped up rather than continue to defend his commonwealth to be honest.
Also because of fat mick, when are we likely to see him on the box again?

would imagine hennesey is still trying to sort his tv deal.

Barker should sign with ******. he would get him a world title shot within a year.

With Carl Hennesy as his promoter maybe in 15 years.
The Barker kid needs at least a half-decent test now.

For sure! But then again, I think that about all of fat Mick's stable of fighters.

I dont rate professional boxers until they beat someone in the top 50 in the world.

Until he beats someone worth talking about he gets nothing from me, when or if darren steps it up in class outside britains finest bums and has beens and beats someone at european level at least then i will give the man his dues..... this isnt blind hate ive watched most of his recent fights and follow his career with a keen eye for the love of the sport but barker will get put to sleep by the 1st decent puncher he gets in the ring with thats a given.

see i kind of agree with this assesment. i dont doubt he has class and talent, we dont know what his whiskers are like, and he isn't in competitive fights, only ones he wins clearly.
this is why i think he needs a step up asap, as these questions need answering.

You do know what barkers whiskers are like and you do know why he is being matched against such poor opponents at his age........
