    I fancy Hughie Fury would put a Shades of Ali clinic on Yoka. He's a much better mover and Yoka doesn't seem to have the power to worry The Skirt.

    Hughie definitely has a granite chin and moves well, but after the Pulev fight it dosent look as if he can step up.

    He does have a good chin but he also cuts very easily as was shown in the Pulev fight which affected him greatly and he has cut badly in other fights too.

    The biggest question for Yoka which started in his amateurs days. Is can he handle pressure?

    He likes to fight at a very slow and steady pace. If someone was to put it on him at a high tempo, then would he fold?

    Does he have that explosive power to make you step off him?

    Overall impression is that he does not look like troubling fighters at world level based on that performance last night.

    I think I've seen just about every second of that programme.

    Dee Dee is a Limmy legend.

    I can't see Yoka doing anything at world level. Would he beat Viktor Faust?

    Hughie vs Yoka seems a good one to make in terms of ranking, stepping up etc. However I don’t think its one for the spectators.
