Default Which fighters could do with a boost from Prizefighter?

Prizefighter has boosted the careers of many fighters who were either stale, faded or lacking opportunities.

What fighters could with the push a win would give?

Tony Jeffries & David Price both excellent prospects, but have gone stale and would be make massive progress by a good showing.

Curtis Woodhouse could make the breakthrough he is seeking

prizefighter has surprised me at how big a platform it gives someone to lead on to bigger and better things, i didnt expect that when it first came about and some fighters should really consider going down this route - david price is a good one

agreed it would give them rounds, a financial boost and the nature of the 3 round format means that they could be matched against each other without sustaining career shortening punishment or significantly damaging their reputation unless they were knocked out .

Default Re: Which fighters could do with a boost from Prizefighter?

Nobody with any class. Prizefighter is not where a top class prospect should be learning the game. Sure it gets you a bit of hype but its not prudant on a boxing level. It's completely counterproductive to what they should be aiming to achieve in the ring. It's about experimenting, improving, fighting longer distances and facing up to stylistic problems as a prospect. Or at least it should be. So **** no they shouldn't be anywhere near Prizefighter, they should simply fight much better opponents.
