    Keeler v Andrade think Thursday (yes Thursday!) 30 January. Big middle weight fight for popular Irish star. Any interest or opinions on this one? How will it go? Andrade is a marvelous boxer....

    I really like Keeler and he has been on a decent run of form of late. Think he's probably reached his ceiling though and Andrade is a step too far IMO. Expect Andrade to stop him late 10-12.

    Andrade looks impossible to beat .... hardly gets hit hardly loses a round etc but sometimes a guy like that can suddenly be vulnerable against the “wrong” opponent...

    Sorry Len, but Keeler is going to get his head boxed off. There’s levels and Keeler will do well to go the full 12 rounds. We can’t even say he can hurt Andrade even if he did remarkably land clean. I will be supporting him though.

    There's been a few upsets recently. Luke can't rely on one big punch. He can't be swinging for the fences either. If he can use very neat footwork and very tidy economical punches to keep himself on top of Andrade, and keep touching him, keep forcing him to work and never rest, who knows. Andrade might unravel. Slim chance I know. I'm a big admirer of Andrades elusive style.

    I was very surprised when I saw this fight announced. As Twenty said it's all about levels. I expect Keeler to be picked apart and stopped around the 7th in a gallant effort.

    Andrade should have far too much for Keeler. Whats strange is that why isn't AD stepping his level of competition up?
    Since winning the belt he seems to have fought hardly anyone of note... just holding the best hostage or is he not as good as he makes out?

    Andrade very good, unfortunately can't see Keeler troubling him.

    Hard to know what's accurate and not these days. It's becoming like the Mayweather sweepstakes. Any number of fighters lining up for a pay day or trying to talk themselves into one. Bit tedious.

    clearly nobody wants to fight him, he would be a nightmare for anyone at 160.
