knew he'd be taking a risk, all I can say is a smart move from him, because if he were to lose,that'd be practically it for his world title aspirations, though it is rather cowardly is it not.

This fight should really get a proper build up, Adil needs to shine on Sat night, Ashley seems to want no part of Adil.

He deserves zero criticism for that. He saw an orthodox come-forward aggressor pull out the week of the fight; it would be madness, not bravery, to instead take on a quality unbeaten awkward counter-puncher at short notice.

Whoops, writing in a rush while doing other things; apologies. The rest is true. Dezzie retired last month I only read that today.

Anwar is rubbish. Theres no risk avioded whatsoever, probably more the fact he'd rather look reasonably good and hasn't prepared for a scrappy weird fighter like Anwar.
