Sam ***ton is a good fighter........

His two wars with Martin Rogan, proved to me that he has bottle, and can perform under serious pressure.

Tell you now this lad would be willing to fight to win a world title not like so many of them yanks who fall way short of even applying themselves.

Sam ain't nothing special but he's on a good run and also beat a guy who people were touting for a extraordinary run to a world title shot so it's not that bad...as Kos said Brooks is the best.

Rogan was technically the Euro champion as well

TBH, he could get into the top 25-30 IMO so 12th isn't that bad (especially for Boxrec).

***ton is quite good imo, rated a little too high but his Rogan wins proved a lot.

Very unsatisfactory wins for me, Rogan lost both on injury. ***ton if fat and out of shape and would of eventually been knocked out by Rogan in both fights had he not been stopped by cuts or a shoulder injury. At least that's the impression I got from them anyway.

***ton's power has seemed to improve alot though. He was really rocking Rogan in the rematch at times and his arms and shoulders were significantly bigger aswell.

Nah, ***ton was winning the second fight fair and square. Injury or no injury ***ton had his number. I think he's better than a lot of guys give him credit for. He needs to drop some pounds and improve his stamina but then don't most heavies?

***ton boxed real well and coped with the belfast crowd too however he was i think helped greatly by the eye and the spine injury but it says W in his column so thats all that matters now. 12th i feel is a little high but with the way people are challenging the klits who knows he may get a shot. ive been watching a lotta late 80s to late 90s heavyweights like tyson, holyfield bowe, david tua ibeabuchi, foreman holyfield and perhaps most relevant for today is lewis mavrovic- a guy who was physically and technically leagues below lennox lewis but he realised unlike the klits challengers now, that this was the biggest chance of his life and he was gona bring it like never before. who knows maybe ***ton could get a pop and pull off a buster by actually fighting like he wants to win.someone needs to do it.anyone i mentioned here would have ko'd chambers by about round 5

he does need to lose a lotta fat and become more solid, i was at the weigh in in belfast and he was giggling

Hopefully we can get the winner of ***ton Williams in with the winner of Audley and Sprott for all three belts.

fair enough mate, but ***ton should have finished Rogan in the first fight the round pryer to the injury and the second fight ***ton knocked him from pillar to post
