    Great fight. I'm taking Bowe by stoppage.

    Walcott`s skills would give Bowe problems like he had with Hide who was quick but his size and reach might be too much for Walcott eventually.

    Hyde vs Bowe II. Bowe KO in under five seems like the most likely outcome to me. But I think Walcott, like Hyde, certainly might have his moments.

    Bowe would have to come in excellent shape to beat Walcott.

    Walcott looked very impressive against Louis (a fight which he won imho) and if it wasn't for Bowe's size, I'd put money on JJW flummoxing Bowe. Even with his size disadvantage, Walcott might still do it.
