Bang on! Looks like he is lined up to fight the Finish guy Lynes just beat, Juho Rulhola or something soon - I wasnt impressed by him but he was "durable and awkward".

Then he should fight Lynes or someone before that and then Lynes.

The talk about Malinaggi is just to get his name in the paper for his profile.

He's lined up to fight former WBC title holder Cesar Bazan next - decent test and a good match up

Hello my pal Shamrock,I know Pipewrench won't agree with you there, as he is a massive Pavlik fan.But I think John can defeat Pavlik[it will be damm hard though].In the picture you posted Smichet looked a lot smaller than Duddy.

Duddy's chances against Kelly are underrated - well I suppose it makes a change from shamrock overratting him.

I think Smicht is a bit of a chump but not the type of guy that gets KO's easily. It would be a very good result for Duddy to KO him although I do think that if it goes to points then I see Duddy winning easily - more easily than the fight itself suggests

Shamrocks a loyal Irish man. I,m fed up showing Pavlik respect, when all you get is derisive remarks about Duddy in return by the American's. And I don't mean the Irish-Americans[ like ML, Sardu and others], that post on to this thread.So come on John, do the buisness tonight, and then your one step closer to your dream.

Mccloskey would be up against it if he fought paulie in new york. paulie is a very tough fighter and cotto couldn't stop him even when he broke his face. Also although i did not see his last fight i heard that it was a very controversil descion and that it wasn't the first time he got a gift descion. So taking that into consideration mccloskey would have to put in a masterclass (which i think he could) so the judges won't be able to take it from him.

The only thing controversial about his last fight was that the referee didn't give all the rounds to McCloskey - I don't think Garnica laid a glove on him all night.
