His been very inactive for one of Angelo's fighters.

Any reason why?

I always thought he looked like he belongs on the deliverance?

But Mabuza will be his toughest opponent to date. I dont see him getting though this fight away from home with a fighter who's been in the rign Kendall Holt and come though a winner. Anyone see that fight?

I expected Ty to say that not you Kegsy. As long as if he wins he attempts to use it to get a shot at one of the bigger belts and not fight stiffs this is O.K.

Wow, this guy will crush steve.

Mabuza was on his way to beating zab until he switched up right in front of judah and he got caught on the chin. He is strong and comes forward all night.

Steve's awkward style may mean he hangs around longer to get beat up.

Props to Steve and Angelo for taking the fight in Mabuza's backyard after a long lay off, all the best to him in training and the fight

So the number 18 and 22 ranked fighters in the IBO's rankings are fighting for the title at 140 lbs. Am I the only one who sees this as a complete farce. Were all the other higher ranked fighters asked if they would fight for the title ? Wills has just fought bums / nobodies in his career and the opponent is coming off 2 straight losses although he has had some good wins in the past. Phil Austin needs to explain this or at least try to.

Steve is an oz club fighter. Nothing more nothing else. Fighting for a belt doesnt change that.

Why would he change habits now? he has basicly fought stiffs and bums throughout his entire career. IBO title has no mandatorys and is not a stepping stone or bargain chip that will lead onto a legit title. People who win IBO titles usually do so because they cant win a real world title.

havent looked at who he is fighting, dont really care.
