I don't think Jazza Dickens has lost a single round yet, however he thought Kristian Laight for his 11th proffessional bout on saturday night, should really be picking up the quality of opponents very soon

Cheers for that. Interesting info on Valentine. His career has been odd. He fought twice in 2 weeks in 2010, losing both on points and then didn't fight for the whole of 2011. Any idea what happened?

Your right he hasn't lost a round however laight was a 24hr replacement for dai Davis who pulled out on Saturday and left Steve wood with a big problem as no-one wants to fight jazza he's a super bantam being avoided by sb fw and sfw opponents .soon to be a champ for sure .

Most of them are shit but..?

I have watched one fight which contained Calum Johnson, and i was very impressed.

"He would destroy both Cleverly & Bellew"

Isn't Ryder the one who's been on a lot of Sky shows as the one they show after the main event? If it is him he started off looking a good prospect of late I've found him trying to get the KO too much and ruining his own work also taking a few punches he really shouldn't. Seems to give into the crowd as well if they want a war he'll give them one when there is no need. Unless I've got this guy mixed up.

Wasn't Ryder and Etches being talked about recently?? That would of been a fun fight.

Someone mentioned Mitchell Smith he has looked great on the boxnation cards so far can't wait to see him step up even though it is a bit early on.

I rate Jazza Dickens, Kevin Satchell and Danny Price.
I don't rate Adam Etches, Bradley Skeete or Dillan Whyte.

I haven't really seen Skeete, but I don't rate Etches either. He can obviously punch (well certainly at the domestic level) but he is sluggish in his movement and easy to hit. Whyte I have mixed feelings about....he does some things very crudely but others fairly well and is a bit of a novice.

I don't see him going far, but he looks a more promising prospect than Etches.

What do people make of Dale Miles? Being away, I am out of the loop and have missed a lot of boxing. His record looks pretty impressive and his only loss was due to a cut from a head clash. I read an interview with him where he seemed to have a great attitude.

Well you can't blame him too much for that.

He could make Super Batam IMO and with the likes of Quigg, Frampton, Munroe, Galad. It will be interest to see who will step up and fight him.

There's a young kid whos had 3 fights from wembly called Gary corcoran, he's a light welter weight and this kid is unbelievably strong, he hasn't had to much talk about him in his career so far but I really feel he will be the surprise of British boxing a few years down the line.

Looking at his weights he has only made the limit once sometimes as high as 130 so can see him making that at a push, but reckon he will one day move up to FW

Has good power and that's about it.

Can be soundly outboxed until he catches you with a shot.
