I think im right in saying there is a London lad fighting for Ghana who qualified for the Olympics?
Yeah I understand about the Turks ****ing joke of the highest order, but dont know about the Ganahan lad.

Agree with this really, I personally thought Callum won but he could have fought so much better if he did specific things better.

Definitely one to watch missed out on the Olympic qualification side of things because of injury his nose I think?

First saw him in the ABA finals in 2010 beat Callum Smith on the way to winning that and has a very pro friendly style powerful and aggresive. Think he will do well when he turns over.

Bernard dunne was only saying this morning he'd be fairly confident he'll get a spot ...think the aiba will make their choices known once the womens world cahmpioship is over, I have a 50 Euro double on him and Taylor to win gold at 5/1, I did before qualification just after Ward hammered that Russian world champ Mekoshev.
