I think Skelton and probably in more impressive fashion than last time. Although I will be cheering for sprott and he comes in with a lot of confidence following the audley ko, however i can't seem him beating Skelton.

Skelton is the best of the British HWs until Haye steps up, and i expect him to win this fight earlier than last time round. I cant see the winner here getting a title shot like promised though.. all 4 would KTFO any of the Brits atm..

sprott is great journeyman ,has alot of heart he just doesnt have anything that stands out not alot of handspeed not alot of power not alot of movement defence....but he gets by and has given boxing technique lessons on prospect like audley harrison and wladimir virchis.

skelton k-1 fighter has been in a few wars went toe to toe with danny williams. and gave a boxing lesson over him in th rematch....good bralwer and will do his sugaray impresions when brought to play.

i have skelton winning by ko or ud but sprott is a good fighter he has the guts and technique which gets him through...im with sprott on this i have heard he has trained his left hook better and better now before the audle fight.

Well the beauty of this division is u see one pucnh Kayo's in abundance. WHo would have thort Sprott could have poleaxed audley afta being knocked down in the first.

This fight could be a surprise Kayo. Altho Sprott has more bad nights than good.

Id probly hav to go for Skelton.

Best fight to make in Britain. Harrison and Williams should do it again to decide the trilogy. Winner and lose fight winner and loser of this bout. They all need to fight again anyway.

Neither fighter excites me much.

Sprott is my favourite for what he did to Audley, but his lack of size/movement/skill mean he is a borderline European level fighter at best. While Skelton is a forty year old man.

Haye should fight the winner of this contest. Skelton might do a Sprott on him.

I think the winner of this bout would be a great fight for him at heavyweight. If it's Skelton that's the best fight because he'd be king of the crop.

I think Haye can beat all the heavies. They got a punchers chance but none of them have his talent or tools!

and haye isnt easily koed he just had stamina problems...every boxer in the big man division ,who steps up that quick has stamina problems in 12 rounds. lewis,wlad ect.

carl thompson just tired him by the pressure and easy hits. remeberhaye had not gone past 4 rounds before this.
