    I dont ever think arthur was dodging Johnasson i just think he seen it as a step down for him and wouldnt do him any good as hes trying for a world title shot.

    Would 'average' be as ridiculous a name as 'amazing'? I think he's well above average, but he ain't amazing is he?

    I tempted to pick Gogoladze, but only because I keep mis-reading his name as "Godzaghe".

    The name 'The Mancunian Mexican' refers to his style, as well you know. Having a nickname of 'Amazing' isn't open to misinterpretation. 'The Entertainer' Johnny Nelson - you don't find that amusing? I wasn't really having a dig I was just selecting an alternative name that also begins with an 'A'.

    Looks a good boxer. Definitely tricky for Arthur anyway. From that though, he doesn't look like he has overly heavy hands (good knock down, but more timing than power in that one). Combining this with the fact that Arthur is a big big SF, I wouldn't be shocked if Arthur just walks him down and goes at him.

    Arthur also has excellent body shots, so I think he could wear the boy down by the mid rounds.

    Still...glad it looks like he is moving onto a higher stage. These are the testers!

    Let's be Frank here. Arthurs reasons for not wanting to fight Johansson were manure at best. He wanted a certain amount of money and bullshitted about Carl not proving enough yet. Plus he was then going to fight some other Eastern guy when he proves much more in facing Johansson.

    As it is, he is doing something bigger and better than Johansson but had he not, it wouldn't have looked good.
