    He looks the goods

    Impresses me more and more with every fight. I think he'll go all the way.

    Was actually thinking Woods might have been a Wednesdayite when typing out my message but wasn't 100% sure :lol: (I was only about 8 when he was in his prime) but yeah he wasn't the best marketed fighter. A lot of his fights were at Ponds Forge and the like weren't they?

    And Hillsborough Leisure Centre. In the earlier days he boxed mainly at the Pinegrove in Stannington.
    Just checked and I was wrong - be boxed Gonzalez twice at the Arena.

    I do agree. It's ridiculous what he gets away with, he is breaking the rules but as of yet he's still doing it and there's method to it too. He's quite a decent trainer Imo.

    He wouldn't have got away with it in the away corner.

    Looks a good fighter quite exciting to watch definitely feel could step him up a bit.

    Would like see In with a sam maxwell or Tyrone mckenna type level next as feel thats should be aiming for

    Johnny Nelson supports Wednesday I believe, but you are right about the steel city crying out for a new boxing hero.

    You might have done. He used to do the doors at a pub in Hillsborough for years :)
    I once read an article where he said he preferred the Blades, but in reality he's not interested in football.
    Brendan used to tell his boxers to say they support both teams.

    Never got why boxers from a 2 team city make their team known. Risk wiping out half of your potential local fan base.

    He is fighting Sam O'Maison for the British.

    Cannot say I know of him, he lost to Kay Prosper back in 2019

    Yeah weird one that! But to be fair Sam maxwell vacated so he didn’t have to fight him and Ennis brown didn’t fancy it either.
    I like smith and think he can go far!

    They have offered the fight to 6 different British fighters and Al of them are washing their hair or mending their bike that day. Seems he’s starting to get a reputation to stay away from dalton.

    Other than the fact he has the bottle to get in the ring with him, is he any good?
