Would he beat Cameron now i don't no.but with a couple more fights i reckon Pitt kills him

Cameron wont come back to CW now that Green isnt there, so it's hypothetical. So really, there's not too much left for him here in Aus as opposition.

If pitt tightens that defence and learns to keep agressive fighters at a distance he'll be a massive force. He too easy finds himself worked into the ropes by these guys. Anyone studying his fights is going to try to exploit this. Cautious fighters like ammann find themselves in trouble against Pitt's combos, speed and power.

sry to sound like a critical bch but Danny hasnt moved down from CW, whats reported and whats actually true arent the same, he hasnt even come close to making LHW and is fighting at CW still, just advertising that he is LHW doesnt mean he is a LHW but i do agree, no point in cameron hanging about the CW division if Danny wont fight him, that is the only reason he moved down to CW in the first place, was promised a fight against Green that never eventuated because Green fans didnt want the fight, public response wasnt crash hot so it never went ahead.

Pitt also used to find himself on the ropes in the amateurs and boxes himself off the ropes but in the pros he gasses out to early and become lazy and tends to want to sit his bum on the ropes, if he can keep moving and not rely on boxing off the ropes all the time he would do alot better.

Pitt gave up on the amateurs for a reason Sally, he could have been competing at the London games but decided not to and turned pro instead. Amateur boxing isnt going to motivate anyone, he couldnt win gold back then so he wont be able to win gold now lol, the pro CWs will demolish him.. do you even think before you post half the dribble you write on here?

Correct me if I am wrong but I think he fought Siale only a few weeks after Oscar and Dom absolutely belted the shit out of each other in an absolute bloodbath. As for Cameron he fought Ammann on the Green-Briggs U/C at 95kg I think you will find and though I didn't see his fight with McCracken I read an article that scored it a draw and some here that did see it scored it for Anthony. He did well against Vea on the Tarver U/C but I think Pitt is better than Vea normally. I give him a great chance against Cameron if you disregard his last 2 fights and write them off as bad nights at the office.

Pitt has to work whit Emanuel Steward or Fritz Sdunek. He needs a coach, who can tell him, how to hold the distance. i think Pitt is a nice talent. He showed heart against Oganov.

That is such a bullshit call "he was looking for a way out when he was in trouble." If he wanted out he would have quit, or climbed out of the ring but he didnt, he did what he had to do to stay in there. I ask you this, what do YOU do when your in trouble against a noted puncher. I bet in your mind you would react Arturo Gatti but in reality you would b out of there in a flash.

few bias opnions on this thread, ask yourselfs a few questions..

Why wasnt Pitts corner warned for interference?
How many people was Oganov fighting against?
Why wasnt Pitt warned for pushing, holding yet Oganov gets warned for an accidental punch behind the head when throwing a hook?
Why wasnt Pitt counted out?

To much bias in boxing in Australia and it ruins the sport.

Pitt will NEVER be the same again after this fight.
