    Never seen George Fox before so looked him up on the ol boxrec. Not sure I'd take this fight if I was Babic, guy came in at 275 last fight and after watching some of his last fight appears pretty tall with some quick hands. He does keep his lands low and has some bad habits, his lack of KOs at this level and at his size raises some eyebrows as well. But this guy looks to be a lot better than Babics last large opponent who, despite being pretty awful, gave babic some unexpected resistance

    Allen bout was a brutal farce, but not much else brutal about it.

    Isn't George Fox Don Charles' son?

    So Babic is now fighting Molina, who is rubbish but less rubbish than Browne so it's a improvement.

    If Molina is motivated and has been in the gym ticking over it could be interesting.

    That said, we are less than a fortnight from the fight.

    Molina is nothing special but he could quite easily KO Babic if he wanted to. We all saw what he was doing to Wardley before he decided to stick to the script and take a dive. The question is, will he want to?

    A fit, motivated, and slightly younger Molina from a few years ago, even with all his limitations beats Babic, who is an awful boxer and just swings away as much as he can, for as long as he can. His biggest attribute is it seems he can do that for a few rounds with no big issues so his stamina is pretty good but that's about it.

    It doesn't get said often enough but Babic is not only a cruiserweight, but if he was paid enough last year could actually have made light heavy I am convinced- that's how small he was at the start. Maybe he can still do it now with the right notice and camp.

    So he's a long way off bring a heavyweight and is just knocking out semi pro journeymen boxers with no ambition who are happy to play the role of the 'opponent' for a Matchroom prospect fighter in the hope they get asked to box on TV again on another card.

    Him vs Dave Allen is to me more or less a 50-50 that tells you all you need to know.

    I think it's hilarious and absurd he's calling out Hrgovich. He would not make it out of the second round.

    Well Molina hurt both Hrgovic and Wardley momentarily and rocked Wilder badly. That said Molina has no heart (never has done), as soon as Babic puts some decent shots together Molina will be looking for a way out of the fight.

    This washed up version of molina is still all wrong for babic, if molina does some homework he can win this

    Molina has no heart. As soon as he’s hit clean he’ll look for a way out. He doesn’t care about losing at this point.

    If Whyte and Babic get chinned on the same card it’ll be better than Courtenay and Fowler losing on the same night.

    Don't really see the problem with this matchup myself. Step up for a green, raw 'prospect' (loose use of the word) against someone with name recognition who's been in with some of the best in the division. Makes sense for Babic, imo
