Taking in to account his inexperience, he has done a great job so far and has proved to be too good for his level of comp. He was easily outboxing Brown but seemed to fight a little one paced. He did the same with Dulog. I'd just like to see him step it up a notch or two when he is in control of a fight.

Technically, he is very fast and a natural athlete with good instincts but his weakness could be his susceptibility to an overhand right. Tommy caugh him a few times with it and he has been hit with rights before. a heavier puncher could be a problem...and they don't seem to be sitting on this kid with plans to fight St.Clair next year. His left hand carry is too low at times.

Not being a knock on the guy, but since he is going to be stepping it up next year, I think he has a few things to work on.

Just my 2c worth.
Yeah great post.

Willy looked very good, but did get caught with that overhand right. Just concerns me slightly as well.

Marcus mate there is no rush for Willy, as he is only 20.

I dont think he is in any danger fighting St Clair.

st clair is a massive danger in my opinion has silky slick boxing skills, and he wont be toying around like he did with oyan, but if he can get by him by all means that opens a world of opportunities i feel..... still waiting on anyone if they taped the show or if someone has found it on the net?

If he was 25 i would be all for it, but i just think at 20, he is still growing & filling out.
No need to risk alot just yet.

What weight should he fight at? He seams to fight over over the place. After the fight he said he is fighting on the um, Chris John undercard, i think.

Great prospect, he would smash Lenni Zap.....sorry Huricn.
you guys make me laugh.

kickett has not fought any one with lennys skill, pressure or power.
lenny would stop him in a fairly 1 sided fight

I doubt it.

Lenny has morphed into a wild puncher these days. He needs to tidy up a bit IMO.

Kickett would have plenty of opportinities to land flush on Lenny. And Lennys chin has betrayed him a few times now.

Kickett would stop him.

**** Kickett is a maddness fighter.... after last nights proformancxe im def raising him to be one of my fav aussies fighters....

good to see him takin bigger fight but like most peeps have said before theres no rush for him he only young...

plus how good is it that he is proud of his culture.. always reps the Koori flag on his trunks and the Yamatji Warrior name is awsome

I think Willie is our version of Amir Khan in England.

Amir just turned 21 and is starting to take on the bigger names like Earl etc in Britain and there's now even talk of a Katsidis fight.

Willie is 20 and that win over Tommy Brown not only was impressive but a huge rise in class as well. I think he's capable of taking on all comers here in Oz over the nxt 12-18 months

The kid shows great maturity, natural speed and footwork with a nice defense. I was a little worried about the step up in class but there was no probs with him handling it. Looks like one out of the box and will be one to watch in the coming years.

I agree for the most part, his defense didn't look very strong though, he seemed to get tagged by the straight right quite easily and it was a fight Browne would of won if he kept up his balance and energy that he had in the first round.

Yeah i do owe u a avatar will get 1 up shortly.

I still dont believe Browne would have won had he have taken a warmup or 2.
I reckon it was the best i had seen Browne in 2 plus yrs.
Lots of his recent fights against Filipino imports had been very ordinary displays.
Hope he has the hunger to continue fighting.
Would be great to see with Lenny Zappa as well.
