Not unreasonable, considering he could lose to a fighter with no record to speak of.

Piper has fought all comers on the domestic scene pretty much. Tough as hell and like others have said i wonder how much weeks notice Piper had and whether he already had other fights on his schedule. Piper is not 1 of those to back out with a padded record.

Heard from a good source That Jerkic got showed up in sparing in Vegas ,he suffered a bleeding nose and jumped straight out of the ring complaining the head gear was no good i question his mental toughness in the late rounds and when he goes into deep water, any 1whos thinks his ready for the big boys the likes of geale,mundine,solimon, woods,have got rocks in there head..

I agree about his mental toughness. I spared him a few times. I hit him with a good liver shot he took a knee and claimed I hit him in the balls. Nice kid though.

Depends on the fight. Piper would possibly lose to Rocky. That would make him look bad, which in turn you would want some decent dollars for.
