I probably should have just done the smart thing and went with the favorite Even if I was wrong Id be wrong with the other top guys so it wouldnt hurt me.

Oh well....

Thank you for the insight on these two though, much appreciated and useful. I can see why Selby is the favorite.

That fight is 70-30 in Luff's favor. Next time I'll get in a PPL's title Challange I want a fight I least consider 60-40 in my favor.

I think it's because the money is in America that it's like that.

It means other countries can have a proper domestic level going on.

For instance with Selby he gets to face the best his country men have to offer early in his career whilst developing. He then steps up to euro level and takes on the best of his continent and then he can move onto world level. It makes for a well charted journey that's televised all the way and well covered.

In America it can't work like that, take Russell Jr for instance. Big prospect but he can't face his best country men without stepping straight to world level. It means the development has to be a mix of journeymen and past prime names, it doesn't allow for the same story unless an upset occurs.

It's a completely different mentality and i think it's because countries outside America have more breathing room when it comes to developing a fighter the gradual increase in level is a tried and tested career path that can have rivalries at every stage.

Tell me about it! Every other challenge I've gone with the underdog, this is my time to shine!

David makes a good point about it being in Belfast though, makes it interesting to say the least.

Damm. Some Danish islam critic got shot at close-up, but the perp missed and then the gun malfunctioned, and the perp then ran away. Talk about luck.

Yeah, and he even gave a phone-interview in the news. The guy had come to his front door dressed as a postman and had a package with him. Said he had to deliver it. Smart stuff, but luckily he had awful aim. They also fought for a bit afterwards, before the guy ran away.
