Why does Hyland think deserves a shot at Dibb.. or any World title holder?

He obviously doesn't deserve a title shot but you can't blame him for talking about world titles. That's what boxers do.

What do you want him to say, "Well I have a fancy looking record but really I've only beaten tomato cans so I'm not going to talk about world titles"

Boxers who've at least fought a live opponent. I cant stand Hylands undeserved sense of accomplishment.. I said it to him on Twitter before, he said he had another great win and I said it doesn't count if your fightin shams.. he wasn't bothered. He's just happy with an unbeaten record. He should get a few good wins in or a good fight with a ranked opponent before he starts talkin about a World belt. And the WBF belt is nothing. He desperately needs to step it up..

cant see it being anywhere other than in Denmark to be honest.

Stylistically I would give Magee a better chance against Kessler than Dirrell but couldnt see him coming out on top against either.

However $1m would soften the blow of any defeat and I cant believe the purse being offered there but that Persson fella is usually a good source for anything coming out of Denmark

Yes I agree, it'll be in Denmark where Kessler is huge. But...Magee has a great recent record over there too

I'm sure Spencer told me that they tried to make it before, to no avail!

The Hyland situation is strange. He went off to New York and at least he's active (inactivity is a huge curse on modern day fighters) but how close is he realistically to a title shot of note? Before he moved to New York he signed with Brian Peters and seemed genuinely close to a European title shot, I think against a Spaniard or a Frenchman, can't remember who or what. But I assume that the relationship with Peters is now finished?

It's frustrating because I always liked Patrick as a fighter and rate him as the best of the three brothers. But seeing him four years ago beating Robin Deakin in the Shorts Social Club, Belfast I honestly thought at this point, in 2012, he would be a lot further on with his career.
