Fulgencio & Hernandez were my first looks at him.

He's alright, but he's damn lucky that Chris John challenge fell through. That would've been too far into the deep end, too soon.

I would fancy him at more than a pig in a poke against Dib, though.

mate, you keep up to date, thats for sure.

no doubt john is a great fighter...or was. like tszu he had an inactive career. i believe his end will be much like tszus. he will get beat by a young, not nesesserily great, young, hungry, preasure fighter.

i dont know if brunker is that type. but older, small, inactive fighters, dont handle constant presure, against someone with a chin and desire.

Yeah, I've still got faith in John holding it down for another year or so even though his legs aren't what they used to be.

How do you slice up Brunker vs. Dib?

He should stay away from Mickey Garcia, he would stand no chance against his power and skill imo.

Ponce DeLeon would also be too much at this stage. Brunker wouldn't have the power to keep him at bay and Ponce would eat him up on the inside.

Chris John and Billy Dib would be his best options at winning a world title at Featherweight.

I'm surprised Brunker & Jack Asis have never fought, that would be a good mainevent for big time boxing on Fox Sports...

I think Brunker should keep padding his record with good handy contenders and go after a weak champion in the division. If he can pull that off than he can cash in his betting chips with a big fight money wise because he is getting stopped by the top 2 or 3 guys

I honestly dont think Brunker has a chance against any of the champs at 126.
Im far from a fan of Billy Dib, but Dib would school Brunker let alone someone elite like Mikey Garcia.

Brunker looks good but his opposition isn't flash. His fight on a FOX card where Dib was defending his title he got hit way too much by an unheralded Mexican. Hope Im wrong but he will fall short in a world title shot.

Couldnt agree more. With almost zero head movement he is destined to meet the canvas when he steps up.

126 is a dangerous neighbourhood

Garcia, Salido, Deleon, Gonzalez, Russel Jnr, Fortuna, John, Yordan & Dib

Brunker to me needs a lot more fights with better opposition as he's not ready for the elite........agree with Kegsy Dib would belt him into tomorrow.
