Default Bolling vs Shaker

I put this one out there a while ago...what does everyone thing of that fight now?

I think it would be a really good scrap..at the time I pick Awad but I dont know Bolling is on fire right now...I think Zac might have had a bit of trouble in his last couple of fights aswell.

Bolling will batter Zac Awad if they fight. Mid rounds KO
My sources told me last yr how Bolling is coming on leaps & bounds...& boy is it showing.
Bolling has underrated skills, shows a solid D & has good power upstairs & downstairs.
Nothing Awad has showed me worries me at all to be honest.

I wouldnt hesitate matching Bolling with almost anyone from the ANBF super middleweight rankings to be honest...Guys like Piper....Kani...Hamdan...Taylor i would feel very confident

I have been saying the same as well mate....Bolling will monster these guys like he did Vic.

Bolling has got the goods and he can take a big shot as well.

After last night I would back Boiling to beat any aussie SMW (save Bika) including Pitman

Piper is going to middleweight where he should have been campaigning from the start. Jr middle if we can make it!

Good stuff if Piper feels comfortable at that weight he would be huge physically & very hard to deal with.

Thats the way i feel too, Super Middle is a powerful division in Aussie boxing.

I think Bolling is the next unrecognised talent on the Oz boxing scene. He has got a great kit of punches, good chin on him & seems to be very level headed. I too believe he'd dust Pittman, Taylor, Wood. Not ready for the likes of Bika just yet but in a few years he could turn into a real world title contender. Very impressive last night........he beat Vic up badly.
Dominic Vea must of woken up this morning wondering if anyone in his team likes him after making him fight with a busted nose. He struggled from the start & McCraken came to fight. Dumb arse move from his management with the C'wealth title shot around the corner.

His improvement and general skills were outstanding.

I think he beats Commonwealth Champ George Groves in a canter.

Brian Magee is another potential step up.

Awad was ordinary and very lucky to get the draw against McConville. But then again, at that stage we didn't know McConville was any good.

Yep, I agree. I think Bolling is a serious contender. I mean serious. What he has to improve on will only take concentration & refinement.
A bit more movement & a bit more mongrel. I think he would have been in the shower a lot earlier if he had jumped on Vic when he had him hurt early.
I'm on the Bolling bandwagon.

Agree he had him hurt early round 1 on the ropes and backed off....same as he did several other times.....however maybe he wanted some tough hard rounds.

Yep. deffinately agree their Raff.
Victor doesn't box any more, not that it was his strong point, but he done alright, & his power is not as cracking as it was a couple of years ago.

He's just tough enough to go down hill slowly & that would not be a legacy I'd like to see him inherit.
