Funnily enough UK TV haven't shown Tolppola yet- crazy, I know.

yes he did and quite easily, some say tolppola has improved since then we shall see, barnes was on the undercard but has now withdrawn.

What does you Brits think of Lynes? You think he is something like top10-top15 in world? And yeah, I do belive that Tolppola will beat him!

Lynes has improved greatly over the last 12-15 months. I always thought he was rigid but he looks more fluid now and the jab he tamed Mutley with was world class, as was the finish.

He looked good against Barry Morrison in the fight before that and i expect him to win again on Friday night. He looks to be too skilful, to well-rounded for the Finn.

Agree - for me Lynes is probably the most improved british boxer over the last year and if he is in the same form I'm hopeful he will beat Tolppola. Really looking forward to seeing this fight.

Would also love to see Lynes secure a rematch with Junior Witter.

I think Colin Lynes is much better than given credit for, certainly better than Gavin Rees.

Slightly below world class, perhaps a fringe contender like Juan Lazcano.

**** belts anyway, he should concentrate on getting the best opponents he can to secure a world title shot.

well said,colin lynes would have preffered branco because of his name being known in us but he will win on friday and and then seek to fight the best available ,he has david barnes as mandatory for british and italians seem to think branco will still be mandatory after this fight, bring them on,dont forget he gave up the ibo world belt because sky wouldent televise then hatton wins it and they televise

Nobody cares about belts really anyway these days, it's more about the two guys in the middle!

Just a suggestion but you could try asking in ESB's european section for any footage of Tolppola.

What I want about this fight primarily is that I get to see it! I hope both guys do well and that it'll be a good fight. May the better guy win... I hope it's going to be Tolppola though

I just want Tolppola to win the fight. I don´t care if it is a lucky punch or controversial decision or anything... Go Tolppola!

I am just little worried about how well Tolppola can make the fight. According to his trainer Pekka Mäki Tolppola weighted about 156 pounds (71 kg), when he signed fight on 9th of January. That is a lot of weight to lose in 15 days...
