He'll be better for the experience LBT. I'm sure he'll bounce back. Best of luck to the guy.

I called them woman because they were female mate. that was the fight I was talking about, you got that right?

I guess Winky was not an excitment machine but as an effective boxer he was great. Thats right, small risk, risk vs reward, thats whats its all about.

I find it strange that you would call a couple of fighters 'women' for throwing power punches and trying to hurt each other yet you're a fan of a guy who wasn't willing to engage and had no intent on damaging his opponent...
I like skillful boxing but Winky wasn't skillful, he was a safety first fighter who found a way to win decisions without taking any risks. People seem to like him now but when he was fighting he was known as the 'King of boring'. Before Vargas he atleast tried to do different things in the ring but once he stepped up in class he came up with his hide and jab gameplan. Good for him I guess, but why would anybody be a fan of a guy who deliberately looks like **** just to get the W?

Fair enough mate...but Broadhurst bouncing around like nothing was wrong just 15 secs later has me feeling otherwise...just my opinion.
On TV to me it didnt come across that way at all.

I know its easy to sit here and say. But boxing 101 is the jab all night long, everything works off the jab.

Winky was a superb master boxer. hands up, solid feet, everything behind the jab.
..that's exactly right and the exact reason why Broadhurst got tagged...end of story..
..just a simple wake up call to get back to basics..
..and good on Berridge for bein' good enough to capitilize..

Likewise, all one need do is watch the slow motion replay if they have any doubts.

I did not end up catching the main fight till right at the end, but my initial comment about not using the jab was in regards to the woman who fought before. I watched the fisrt 6 rounds and that was enough.

well mate...I've just had a quick look at the fight and that's exactly what I come away thinkin'...so maybe it applied to both fights...but Trent is not on his 'Pat Malone' anyway...it's a pretty common trait for a up'n'comin' fighter to get caught up in...they get to gungho and forget about what made them successful in the first place..cheers buddy.

Trent has a distinctive style that plays into Southpaws hands.
Keep him away from southpaws and he will be alright.

When I was watching it I thought Trent's head hit the canvas when he went down. Could be wrong, but would've added to the concussion.

yes his head hit the canvas quite hard going on the replays.

trent hasnt really shone in the pro ranks. not sure why. berridge managed to minimize trent advantage in boxing skills by having a high work rate, being an awkward southpaw, and being more aggressive.

i noticed 2 of the judges gave broadhurst all 4 rounds!!! so if this one went all the way i think it would have been a bit controversial like the carroll brown fight.

all trent needs to do is more work. when he chooses to, he easily outboxes everyone. but, against berridge at least, he was only doing this in spurts.
