    Who? I hear you ask. Me too, never heard of him. Hughie must be Norrad-y yet to mix it at world level again.

    Does he track Santa?

    To be fair he’s unbeaten and Hughie is coming off a loss.

    In all seriousness, does he have any pedigree other than an unbeaten record?

    This is on Channel 5 in a small venue so it’s to be expected.

    To be fair, the guys needs to rebuild
    The loss against Pulev exposed him badly and with 2 defeats in 2 years on his record at such a young age going back down to boost his confidence is understandable
    He needs two or three fights he win be able to win before moving forward again

    Shades of Ali is back - fighting the mighty Norrad who is (according to boxrec) the 8th best Canadian (out of a whole 16) HW

    This.

    I think he deserves a bit of slack. He stepped up to face Pulev in Bulgaria when established guys like Miller and Whyte declined. It didn't work out but he doesn't lack courage. He got cut badly too.

    Why?

    Why does he need to rush? he is quite young still in terms of boxing age
    Rebuilding does not mean rushing in to fights

    He may need to change quite a lot about his style if he is to progress, which looking at his last fight seems quite clear

    I'm hardly sticking up for him but a bit of context please

    Nothing wrong with Dubois vs Lartey at this stage.
