Default So...anyone going to see Willie Limond v. Watson?

Anyone think this fight will be close? Anyone think Willie gets beaten? Any thoughts about this fight?

(Go, Willie! )

Limond v Watson is potentially a good fight. Hope Limond wins.

Think Michael Gomez also features on the same bill. Don't think its on TV though which is a shame!

It should be a good one, Im going along. I honestly think Watson is an under-rated fighter, he always took fights at short notice, and I mean only days notice! Been ripped off in the past, Meager etc. I saw him down the Barn the other day, and the kid looks good, I can see him stopping Wullie.

Gomez boxes Baz Carey... He amusingly rang me for a few pointers the other day. Such a good lad Mike. Hope he gets some sort of title fight then moves onto better things in life.

Awright MT, I will let Rab know Its good Martin has had plenty of notice for this one, as we know he usually gets a fight with no time to prepare, thats why the barn boys are always fit though. There are plenty of talented boys in there thats for sure, hardy wee bastards
If Wullie has taken Martin lightly it will be a big mistake, looking forward to it

Tough fight for Willie considering he has been out for a few months.

Would love to see him win and build on his performance against Khan - if Watson stops him as you suggest it would be a big setback for him.

Watson is quality... never really got the breaks but he was considered superior to Ricky Burns pre Earl.. I think Willie is too experianced for MW after who can't be 100% after the stop-start nature of his career.

Hi Jeff, think your right Martin was considered better than Burns at one stage, this will be an interesting one, if Wullie loses it would be a big slip up for him, but if Martin wins he can certainly go onto bigger and better things. Keeping my fingers crossed for MW cause I would like to see the guy have a break, he is certainly been overlooked for a long time.

I think Martin will make it a good fight but expect "Grouds keeper" Willie Limond to win.
