    ...continues.

    30 pro fights and his Top 5 wins are Eubank Jr, Lee (retired one fight later), Monroe Jr, Ryder and Lemieux/Akavov.

    He's talking, talking, talking, talking, talking.

    Where is the action?

    Fighting B and C level fighters is fine and acceptable but please stop talking trash like you beat the elite in different weight classes.

    Last three fights: Won the vacant WBO belt at 168 against Shefat Isufi in a joke title fight. Isufi rocked him to his core in the mid rounds. Two joke defenses against 40yo Martin Murray and Marcelo Esteban Coceres who recently lost to a guy named Sebastian Horacio Papeschi for the national title in Argentinia.

    The history of Silly Joe ducking the elite and avoiding the Top level guys continues.

    While all this is mainly true, at 31YO, his resume isn't that far off from the Charlo bros in terms of high quality wins. And they are both 30Yo as well.

    Bill has been a pro for 13 odd years though.

    Waited for GGG to age too.

    His resume is a joke for how long he's been a pro.

    I know, and I get that. Just seems he's not the only one in boxing doing this to their careers (Not that you implied or anything).

    I'm just amazed at the # of guys who are 30 who have yet to even really step up to the next level. Too many feasting on smaller 'name' fighters or using their promoter as a means to avoid certain guys.

    Jermalls record is a joke indeed but he's a clown anyway. Jermell has a solid resume and fought decent opponents (Rosario, Harrison twice, Cota, Trout, Lubin, Vanes, Rosado).

    But the Charlo bros don't really matter for this case imo.

    I have nothing against the bros. Just wish they'd have stepped up a few years sooner.

    Heavily ducked GGG and had nobelief he could beat him.

    In a press conference with Eubank jr he said GGG would destroy both of them on the same night. Is that the talk of a champion?

    Don't be stupid *******. I am talking about ALOT of current boxers around 30 missing out on step up fights sooner. Charlo's are just an example. And i don't hate them you freakin douchebag.

    Saunders was scheduled to fight GGG in 2017 and 2018, but GGG pulled out both times to face Canelo.

    Jermello has had 35 fights and turned pro in 2007

    Jermallo has had 31 fights and turned pro in 2008

    BJS 2.0 has had 30 fights and turned pro in 2009

    Jermello has fought three world champions: Trout, Rosario, Harrison

    Jermallo has fought three world champions: Trout, J Rock, Bundrage

    BJS 2. has fought two: Lee and Lemieux FTR both of whom are murderous punchers and Murray is a two-time uncrowned champ

    To be fair, Bundrage was a 42 y/o toad facing a giant in Jermallo and Trout was well past his best when he fought Jermello and Murray was well past his best too

    All I ask is that you treat a gypsy man fairly. We don't want or expect preferential treatment or any favours, just a level playing field and for you to treat us the same as you do others :shakehead:
