Default Watch and Admire!

We are all looking forward to next Saturday's fight with Nicky Cook and i'd like to take this chance to wish all the boxers well.
Burns has been looking diffrent class in the gym and imo is ready to put on the performance of a lifetime,we read that Nicky thinks AAA is a better fighter than Ricky? I will ask him the same question when Ricky is finished with him,in fact Ricky, again imo is better at this stage than any of Cook's previous opponents.
I think there will be stoppage wins for Mitchell,Gavin and Bellew also on the card,so i hope everyone enjoys a good nights boxing and win,lose or draw talk to you all next sunday.
All the best BN.

Your picks look good except Murray will stop Mitchell.

I agree with all your picks, so long as Mitchell has prepared perfectly.... I also agree that Burns is better than anyone Cook has faced. So why has been given this world title shot! He hasn't earnt it!

Just out of interest what makes you pick Mitchell, Billy?

I'm going back and forth on that fight. Mitchell has the style to win the fight. Murray struggles with movement, he squares up and his a plodder. But he also has more intangibles, is mentally stronger then Mitchell and is a better inside fighter who imposes his game more effectively then Mitchell does. Can Kevin outbox someone like Murray for 12 rounds? I doubt it. Not to mention his preparations probabily won't be the best.

There is no way in hell Mitchell stops Murray. Sorry but that's one prediction I don't see coming true.

I think that Ricky can stop Cook Billy, what are your views, body shots for me will be the key to Ricky winning this.

No doubting Billy's knowledge and expertise. I won't pretend to go up against it. And he may have liked what he saw when Mitchell and Burns sparred recently.

I know Mitchell had some time off from training for a "viral infection" which won't have helped him. He'll be up for this one but I don't see it going 6 rounds. Sounds bold, almost reckless... but there you have it.

I can see Burns stopping Cook though.
