We get a lot of Argentinians here in NZ, and they never seem to measure up. I expect an early night for Lee with his impressive disciplined 'create your range' style. He will get better too I think. Manny Steward trains him doesn't he? Great coach.

It's also pleasing to see the Canadians get behind Moliter as he has had to do things the hard way by fighting all round the world to achieve his honours. I know a audience of 6000 attended Steves last fight in the same casino where he fights on Saturaday, so I hope he can pull the same numbers this time.
Hawkes,isn't Moliter managed and promoted by an Irishman from County Down. Am I correct in stating that?
No, I dont think so. Unless James Jardine is originally from Ireland, I dont think he is, but I could be wrong. Molitor has been managed by Jardine for pretty much his whole pro career, and Allen Tremblay is also part of the management team.

Theres no doubt that Casino Rama will be sold out or close to it on Saturday night. Tickets go pretty fast.

I like Lindsay too. Only seen him twice though, both live at Rama. He was impresive both times. He gets very good crowd support at Rama too. Should be interesting to see how he does in February against Appleby. I think Lindsay is probably the favourite going in, though I admit I have never seen Appleby before.

Ardy, where did you hear that Lee was going to be on the Wlad/Duddy card? I know his stablemate Banks is on the card, but I am pretty sure Jabby (Duddy's matchmaker) said their were no plans to have Lee on the card. What have you heard about it because if he was added that would mean Duddy, Lee, Joe Green, and Kid Chocalate would all be fighting and thats a great chance to see the future of the middleweight division.

Manny Steward stated that Lee would be on the undercard of Klitscho/Ibragimov after he defeated McKay in Dublin. I think they haven't announced it, as there waiting to see how Andy copes next week in Limerick.
ML, Steward is trying to sell next weeks fight as being meaningful. So he hasn't mentioned that Lee is fighting shortly after, as it would suggest they are not taking the Argentin serously.

I thought Jardine was born in Banbridge county Down Ireland, that's how he made the connection with Lindsay.
But anyway, Appletons fights have been shown exclusively on Sky TV, he's tipped to be a future star, so I hope Lindsay does not take him too lightly.

Hello Shamrock, There was actual speculation that Lee was going to be matched against Howard Eastman on the 23rd Feb.

Thats right, I remember that too! That would have been interesting on the Duddy win.

The 23rd FEB will be some event.
Shamrock, have you ever been to the "Garden"?
Who do you think will win between Klitscho and Ibrabimov?

No, to the 1st Ardy, and yes Klitschko has the goods to win this quite handily, I can't see Ibragimov making an impression in this fight. Like Manny is coaching Lee to fight on the outside using his feet and create your range style, I see the same applying to Klitschko as big as he is. What do you think?

I think with Klitscho glass chin anything is possible[ Pavlik is the same], but I believe Wladimirs overall class will prevail.
If Duddy fights Pavlik in June, I plan to be there, so I hope it's at the "Garden"

I would have liked to have been there too, instead of being a peasant from downunder.

I disagree about Klit having a glass jaw, but then, I don't think Ibragimov will get to test it!

Do you not think Klitscho was exposed by Sanders and Brewster.

Although Klitscho is still the best at this moment.
