Default Remaining fights of 2012 - which are you most looking forward to?

Some decent fights both domestically and internationally before the year ends, which in particular are you most excited for?

Domestic (classing Khan in this)
Price-Skelton
Hefron-Vassell
Flintoff
Fury-Johnson
Burns'
Groves-Johnson
Magee-Kessler
Rees-Murray
Barker-Hope
Purdy-Jones
Khan-Molina
Other

Always like watching Khan and Fury, and think Rees-Murray could be pretty good.

Guillermo Rigondeaux vs. Poonsawat Kratingdaenggym stands out to me most out of the non domestic bouts

Rees v Murray - I like Rees a lot, he's really building a pretty decent record now with good wins to go with the titles. Rees is favourite but Murray will make for a good fight.

Purdy v Jones - Phonebox fight? Two aggressive fighters, should be good but has to be there for Jones really.

Fury v Johnson - A bit of a step up for Fury, his most interesting fight since Chisora.

Towers v Browne - 50/50 fight between two 'unbeaten' prospects and its in Hong Kong

The rest I'm not too interested in TBH

Pretty packed domestic schedule for the rest of the year.


Purdy vs Jones is a guaranteed barnstormer. Looking forward to Groves vs Johnson too. I don't Glencoffe is as shot as most seem to. Should be a good test for Groves.

Austin Trout vs Miguel Cotto should answer a lot of questions about Trout. Huge test for him.

Donaire v Arce

Crolla v Farrell is gonna be an interesting fight

Purdy v Jones could be a candidate for fight of the year

I must admit I'm intrigued by Flintoff!

Otherwise, Purdy v Jones is an all out war.

I think Groves has a big but do-able task that should be decent.

Price and Fury fights are just formalities really.

Hope Barker has a good return and I'd like to see how he's recovered

Was looking forward to Rees/Murray .

Internationally Cunningham/Adamek II. First fight was a war but that was a few years ago and they'll be at HW this time round.

I didn't even know Poon had been matched with Rigondeaux, that's an awesome fight! If he's the same man that tore through Bernard Dunne I reckon he'll give the Cuban a very, very hard night's work. Donaire-Arce will be very one-sided though. Arce fights face first, this is basically a set up for Nonito to stamp his mark for fighter of the year.

Cotto-Trout should be interesting this weekend. I have a feeling we are going to see Cotto on the attack again, against a fresh, fast southpaw. Should be a good fight, I think Trout may pose Cotto some serious problems.

Purdy-Jones will be good while it lasts, but I think Jones is being under-rated. For me, he's a level above Purdy, at least.

Vassell-Heffron will be a good close-quarters fight.

The best fight though? Its no contest.... Raymundo Beltran Vs Ji Hoon Kim next Thursday. Beltran's the tough SOB who just beat Lundy and Kim, well just youtube him, its often worth it. It will be a WAR!

Groves will do a number on him, and I have far to much respect for Johnson to want to see that.
