Default Jason Booth vs Steve Molitor for IBF Strap in July?

As per the NOTW. Would seem a strange thing to be bullshitting about.

Molitors lack of power will help Booth do his thing, but I see Molitor edging a decision on the basis he's bigger.

Can never count out Booth though, and Molitor has not looked the same (and has never looked spellbinding IMO) since Caba took him out.

Will Booth be able to expose Molitors lack of inside game by getting inside the jab and landing his own counters. Booth is a small 122lber, but manages to land nice, accurate shots once he's negated the range. This will be an interesting fght and is definitely winnable for a guy who's come up the hard way. Booth didn't look terrific against Marsh IMO, and whilst I don't rate Molitor, he's a cut above Matthew Marsh.

So, thoughts, I've rambled long enough

I don't think size will play that big a part in this one personally.

I'd say the jabs and footwork are more an issue..... Booth didn't look great against Marsh but looked good (at least as good as Molitor did) demolishing Hunter..... and should have enough to beat Maludrottu - which is an ideal match to make as a guage.

I'd lean a bit toward Molitor on points, but Booth winning wouldn't surprise me at all.

The jab is my main issue. Booth needs to time and loop his shots around it. Molitor isn't te most durable IMO, Booth is no banger but can be startingly accurate at times. This is his best chance to pick up a strap at this weight, although with the density of 118 at the mo' he wouldn't necessarily have a better chance there, though I stand by my previous assertion he'd give most of the top boys there a very difficult nights work.

GO TOO SMOOTH

Molitor on points...Altho he isn't an amazing champion,he's a good counter puncher and still a big step up for Booth.

Be nice to be wrong tho!!!

Booth should take this fight if available. Time isn't on his side and he probably won't fighter a weaker champion than Molitor.

Can't see him winning though to be honest. Booth looked rubbish last time out and was lucky to get the TKO.

I hope the fight gets made. Booth is a good lad and I'd love to see him get a shot.
