First noticed him when he blasted Peter Allen out in 18 seconds which was mightily impressive becaus I know first hand how tough peter is. Other than that he stopped both Dean Phillips and Steve Mullin but was stopped by some foreigner a couple of fights ago. He's a talented kid though.

You a fan of the Mitchell brothers?

I don't know much about Vinny Mitchell other than he is a featherweight.

What was his amateur career like?

As a kid excellent but 1-1 as an adult inc a pretty brutal stopage loss in the ABAs. He didn't mature physically as fast as Kevin so it was a man a gainst a boy really. From the little I watched of him (both fights as an adult) he seems a pretty good technician and a good mover. howeverm people who watched him as a nipper reckong he's a nasty piece of work in the ring. The same "vicious streak" that commentators use about Kevin.

A lot of people I've spoken to have high hopes for him.

I have heard he is a good prospect, but wasn't he knocked out in the first round by Akaash Bhatia in the amateurs???

Exactly the 4 id go with.

Appleby looks a great prospect though worth a mention for craig mcewan its a pity he doesnt get much coverage over here.
