Default Colin Lynes vs. Juho "TNT" Tolppola!!!

I am very exchited! January 24th Colin Lynes defends his 140 European title against my countryman [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]! Lynes was supposed to fight Branco, but now the takes on the #9 ranked Tolppola! Great news for Finnish boxing, althought I am not sure that Tolppola will take the title...

Tolppola is a very solid boxer. Great chin, great conditioning, pretty nice overallskills, nice amateur backround, he is young and fresh... But lacs the explosineveness that top dogs have. He does everything good, but really nothing superbly. But he is a good kid, I tell you that. He is way better than he looked when he fought David Barnes back in 2005. I am 100% sure that he will at least go the distance against Lynes and I do belive that it will be a very close fight!

Here is Mr. Tolppola:

Anyone know why Branco pulled out ?

I'm a little disappointed as a win over Branco would certainly lead places where a win over Tolppola probably leaves Lynes where he is now .
However once it's a decent fight I'll be happy .

I reckon Lynes UD .

Was much more interested in the Branco fight tbh. Branco had a record, and would have been a better win. Any source onthis new match up?

I like Lynes I think he has come on leaps and bounds and will given the right direction could get a shot at a World belt (If Rees can get one...).

Dont know anything about this ''TNT''. Any real chance of an upset here?

I'm a big fan of Colin Lynes so hope he can build on his success over the last year.

Boxrec isn't always the most reliable I know but they have Lynes down to face Tolppola on 25 Jan and then Branco 29 Feb?

Yeah, the Finnish press have also reported that the winner or Lynes vs. Tolppola must face the official challangher Branco latest the 29 Feb. EBU have rules it.

I lift my hat up to Lynes. He could had just postposed the Branco fight, but instead he takes on a serious challanger. Well... Most likely Lynes´s camo think that they will make easy money and have a easy night with Tolppola and then take on Branco a mounth later. But I don´t think that it will happend. Tolppola will at least give Lynes a very tough fight.

Branco is a better win than Barnes, he should dump the British title in that case.

I just watched some of Lynes´s fights and I feel pretty condident that Tolppola can beat Lynes. I will surely bet on it, if it will be possible. Tolppola is simply the better boxer. People need to understand that Tolppola totally outclasses guys like Muttley. Lynes vs. Tolppola will be a very hard fight. I am not saying that Tolppola will win it easily, but if Tolppola fights a good fight, he will win the European Championship Title!
