Stupid move, he would risk getting overwhelmed by domestic level guys, he should be at LMW but he clearly isn't dedicated enough?

Not sure he has enough power to hang with the 12 stoners. He is right were he is. I dont think he could make light middle now. He defo looked fleshy when he first started out but looks right at 160lb now.

He lacks good application. I'm not convinced about the Tibbs - all of their fighters seem to lack focus in the ring. Billy was dancing around the first six rounds instead of working that body attack.

You're dealing with a smaller man, who's nearly 30 and looking a little fleshy in the midriff. Bodywork is essential, especially when you're not a very hard puncher.

it's a real technical flaw I keep seeing in him.

Maybe FW wants someone to smash up Froch with.

Good luck with that one the only way Billy Joe wins that is if he's allowed to take one of his horses in the ring with him.

can you imagine froch against bjs? he looked massive compared to his opponent last night but still looks underpowered and his conditioning looks shit. he was holding on a points last night.

I have a bad feeling Billy Joe's last two fights have shown his level a bit. If you don't have enough power to keep those two off then what are you going to do when you step up to even Euro level? I'm a massive fan of Billy Joe, love his skills and he seems a great lad but either he has no pop or his hands really are ****ed.

And I really do think that FW has BJ v Froch on his mind!

BJS is far to big for light middle, so he defo shouldnt be moving down.
he should just get conditioned better and stay at middle.
in time he could move upto lo super middleweight but he is only 23 so he has loads of time to do that.
