good to see dunne making a comeback,his next 3 fights are absolutly crucial for his progress and it will be great to see how he copes against a lesser opponent after being stopped.smart fight making from peters.

andy lee challenging for a world title by the end of '08,i dont know what to think of it,he's really got the talent to go on and dominate the mw division,but do you not think that it's a bit early to be going for such a step up in class,Vera is a good challenge next month,if he goes in and does a very tidy job it will be interesting to see what progress is made from there.

I would agree Green Gloves that there is no rush. No matter what he or Manny thinks he is still learning his trade and has plenty of time on his side. He hasn't fought anybody in the top 20 yet. After the Vera fight, all going well, they should start to ramp the standard of his opposition. At that rate you would feel by mid to late '09 he should be ready for a crack at Pavlik or whoever the main title holder is then. He would certainly appear to have the skills, body shape and power to make him a serious force at MW/SMW/LHW.

After Vera Lee is scheduled to fight Willie Gibbs, a tough B-level middleweight who got crushed by Miranda a while back.He shouldn't give Lee much trouble either but a good name on the resume nonetheless

Vera lost badly on the contender - he tried to stand and trade with Jaidon Coddrington and got blasted out in the first rnd.If he tries the same with Lee he won't last much longer.

Probably the biggest town in Mayo as far as population is concerned. A bit off the beaten track though. The venue sounds good so this could have been a factor - also Brian Peters has stated that he wants to bring boxing to the provincial towns of Ireland.

Iceman - is the Gibbs fight 10 April - I checked out Boxrec and they show this date for Lee but no named opponent yet. If he can get past both Vera and Gibbs in an impressive manner his stature will definitely rise - also that's 3fights in less than 10 weeks - no messing about.

Mick - someone posted this schedule that Manny wanted for Lee for the rest of this year.

March 21st - Vera
April 10th - Willie Gibbs
Early may - Howard Eastman
Late June _ Winky Wright
November - Pavlik

Steward said he he and Arum had agreed to the November date if Lee came through the rest of the schedule unscathed.

The WW fight confuses me - i see no reason why Winky would want to fight Lee and a fight with Winky is too risky for Lee.However is he beats the other 3 then his resume should be good enough to get him a shot at Pavlik - i still think he is being rushed a bit.
