Default Maccarinelli vs Braithwaite

I'm really looking forward to this!! Should be a good tear up - doubt this is going the full 12. Credit for Macca taking this fight, it's a good step up but will it be a step too far? A win here sets up big things for Enzo.

Its a step up of course but the suspicion is that Brathwaite has seen better days. If Macca wins we shouldn't go overboard.
Good matchup all the same!

Truth is he is being hated on because compared to David Haye he's had an easy ride in his career. If Haye wasn't there for comparison a lot of the criticisms he's faced wouldn't make any sense. I think he'd been matched reasonably, not particularly tough assignments, but he's done ok. But compared to Haye he's been totally mollycoddled. hence, criticism.

Also, the fact he's got a world title without having to fight anyone world class for it is a sham. Mark Hobson is a good fighters, probably top 25, top 20 max, but he's not world class.

It also appears that he was not prepared, or at least his management weren't prepared, to fight David Haye, depriving us of one of the best fights that never was. Going on to fight bobby gunn hardly instead hardly won him any fans either.

If Braithwaite has anything left in the tank, he'll KO this guy, I'm sure of that.

Braithwaite looks drained at the weight and very dry. Could be an early KD

The big truck has nothing left in the tank.

Macca will stop him I am sure of that.
