    Marty! You're alive!
    By your own admission you're a hopeless winner picker. Remember your lack of faith in Carl first time round....:)Hopefully you haven't put the hex on Carl by picking him. :) anyway good to have you back....

    Hey Slap....Hopefully your very welcome resurgence on here will see you commenting and sharing your insider knowledge on a wide range of Irish boxers and boxing matters....not just confined to plugging Eric - wonderful and all as he is....:). Good luck to Eric by the way. :).

    Right len let's have it with Erics advanced years his seeminly lack of a big power punch (say like his buddy Andy lee has)
    the infrequency our lads can box duemail to having to sell tickets for every fight.only so many times you can go to that well in a short space of time.
    How far do you really see him going.
    National title
    European title
    World title
    Undoubtedly skilled and one of my favourite amateurs to watch but how far do you REALLY see him going and have you guys set out an end goal.
    IE if he doesn't reach xxxxx level it will be a disappointment

    I know its the other 'Len' you're directing that one at but I had to pull you on your 'Andy Lee lacks a punch' comment. If theres one thing Andy could do it was crack a bit in fairness!

    Anyway more importantly how will tomorrow night go in Vegas?

    i meant he seems to lack the one punch power the like of Mr Lee has,(edited since)

    I find it hard to look past Carl, i think he has too many ways of fighting for LSC,
    He also looked physically stronger and seemed to carry more power the last time,
    Frampton points decision i reckon,

    Oh ok...I was wondering!
    Let's hope slap will answer you...

    LSC is very hard to out point...jhis high output style is very judge-friendly. He is also very hard to ko....Carl never really hurt him at all first time.
    LSC will give it everything this time...2 losses to the same guy would be a disaster for his earning power and he knows this.

    As long as it's fair ...that s all I ask...Vegas is very dodgy at times.

    The weigh in.

    LSC smiling and relaxed and chubby cheeked.
    Carl looks tight and tense...no smiles etc..gulping water immediately after weighing in
    This is good .a good in a way though. He looked mean and hungry. Very primed and up for it.

    I'd be more worried if he wasn't nervous, Marty. You need that adrenaline.
    About to start now. Expect LSC to try harder to win a few more of the early rounds this time unlike last time.
    Will Frampton meet fire with fire..or try to box him????

    Carl looking to load up too much ...getting picked off ...he should let LSC lead and look to counter...

    Boxing in the back foot and with lower work rate won't win these rounds in Vegas...Carl needs to step it up a notch here..
