My first thoughts are that Sinclair would do to moore what he did to Coyle but Moore is a bit more seasoned than Coyle and probably a bit hungrier.If Sinky doesn't stop him early Moore could grind him down in the latter rounds

Looks right alright. Ste, if you get any clean shots of it will you email them over - not that Boxing Scene ever use any photos I take because I am doing a Frampton piece at the moment! :TU:

Thats mare likit!
Sinky looked old it the first minute and despite me lookin for every opportunity to see the best in his work he was giving me very little material to latch hold of. Extremely dissapointing performance especially when you put it into the perspective of Pryces next fight - and dont let anyone give me the "Pryce was drained fight the first fight" kinda chat because Sinky gave him nothing to be gased about.
As for Moore - jesus I dont know about it. I am hoping to meet up with James in NYC in a couple of weeks and I will suss out his condition and attitude then. Coyle was exposed by Sinclair, Moore is havin a bad run of it lately - a defeat to Moore would be a sorry nail it Moores ambition to become anything more than an Irish champion. If Sinclair lost to Moore it would be an end to a career that promised a lot but which petered out in the end largely unfulfilled!

That's a fair assessment

But Slappy, that's what exactly happened, Pryce looked flat against Aaron. Sinclair and Pryce fought with an intensity not equaled by any of the remaining bouts. I had it 29-28 for Pryce[as had two of the other judges, and Parris gave it to Sinky by the same amount], so by the very nature of this scoring, indicated how close the fight was. I thought Sinclair looked over anxious rather than old, so we will agree to differ, but thanks for your honest opinion.

We just need Obi Wan Frampton to make his picks and we'll all be rich men.

Its a shite idea splitting them over two nights but it means I get to see the Saturday finals. Friday night clashes with the LoI first game of the season. Blessing in disguise for me but a load of nonsense in general
