Default Carl Johanesson vs Leva Kirakosyan

Yep, Carl is going to try and avenge his first round ko loss. I respect that.

Not only that, but he is doing it for the EBU (European) Super Featherweight Title!

Credit to Carl. Many of us picked against him in different fights but as hes stepped up hes shown his strength, his power, his will, his tenacity and even his underrated ability.

He's a Brit so I'm rooting for him to avenge his loss.

Bring the belt home Carl!

Good on him for wanting the rematch, but Kirakosyan crushed him back in 04

True but Carl seems to have improved an hell o alot since then. It's judgment time to see if he has what it takes to step up or be another nearly man.

I hope so, he's one of the most entertaining exiting boxers we have and any chance to see him is not to be missed, i know he has limitations but he has a punchers chance against most fighters.

Any one see him dismantle femi femitola? That was cool.

Femintola was the next big Ingle thing. He was systematically taken to pieces. Talk about throwing a sheep to lions..

He'll avenge this defeat. It was a relatively inexperienced Carl that fought the first time. Kirakosyan knows this, so don't expect him to jump in and go for a R1 KO like last time (when Johanesson was caught cold).
I see 5-6 rounds before Carl puts him to sleep.

Carl initially looked like a bit of a raw brawler. The Burns fight showed me he is a little stronger and hits a little harder than most people think. That is the sort of talent he needs for the big stage. He has more improvement left in him. Seems like a good guy so i'll root for him.

It was shown in an advert i think, he kind of walked straight into a counter right hand and went down. He got up quick and was all over the place so the ref stopped it i think. He should do the business this time!

Do Yorkshire proud Carl
