Would be great to see Amir Khan in a rematch with Bredis Prescott, but honestly, i cant see it anytime soon. I hope and believe Amir will come back and be a sucesess. Hopefully Prescot will win a title and fancy his chances of earning good money for an easy defence against Khan and then Amir can return the favour of an early KO to him. On the subject of Prescott, it appears Frank Warren may not be the only person to have him under contract, German promotors Arena Box also claim to have him under contract, will be interesting to see were this leaves Prescott himself, cos if a legal dispute ensues between the two it could prevent him from boxing which would be a crying shame. So i hope for the boxers sake its sorted out soon.
The less said about this the better so i'll be quick, Holyfield needs to be protected from himself before he ends up getting seriously hurt, its been proven in his last few fights that he can no longer compete at the highest level and expect to win. Holyfield is a modern great and the ultimate warrior but he needs to realise enough is enough and put it to bed, the man must be crazy! Whats he got left to prove? That he can still take a good beating. Does he really wanna end up punch drunk (more than what he already is) or worse. If the romours are true about his financial situation then i can understand why he wants one more big payday, but at the risk of serious injury? no way. But with his reputation he will probably be allowed to fight the giant and will no doubt lose widley on points (if Valuev takes it easy).
I hear what your saying and agree with most of it, Ricky Hatton is a real nice guy and like yourself picked him to beat Tzyu when no one else did. I also agree that his punch resistance is declining alarmingly, but i believe this is more to do with having to shift the excess weight has finally caught up with him and believe his body can no longer cope with what he puts it through and stay strong. I think this fight with Malignagi could be his last and really hope he goes out on a win, but iv got an awful feeling that he's gonna lose, i think Malignagi is gonna raise his game and shock the hell out of a few people, i believe he may even KO an exausted Hatton, i hope i'm wrong i really do, so come on Ricky prove me wrong then retire da champ.
David Haye was a medeocre cruiserweight - That statement is laughable (you must be a comedien!!) He was the linear champion (the man who beat the men). Granted the early carear loss to Thomson dosnt look good, but the way he came back to demolish the best the division had to offer was pretty impresive. He may be small by heavyweight standards but i believe he hs the skill and the will to more than compete with the current crop. I believe that he will be a lagitimate heavyweight champion reguardless of his size (or lack of it). Only time will tell so lets see what happens.
Very true, options are a part of boxing contracts, sometimes to the point of a fighter having to sell his soul to get a big fight. Very true Frank warren is a very savy businesman in terms of making money (for himself), he is also good at keeping his fighters well protected and undefeted (Amir Khan aside) (apoligies for spelling!) and he's pretty good at the art or promotion, but Frank Warren is as slimey as a bucket of frogspawn. The man wears his soul on his face, he's Don Kings white doppleganger and now he's being found out for what he really is - a good promoter but as sneaky as a **** weasle. He should run next time for mayor of London!
As for Haye's chin i believe it will stand up when it has to. I believe the Thomson KO was more down to conditioning than him being chinny (hopefully a lesson learned!) and Moremeck can bang with the best.
Troutlord, you cant put muscles on a chin! Wlad Klitchko for all his offensive power, great jab and huge muscular frame is missing one thing - The ability to take a dig and stay upright. I believe Haye would walk through him to KO him early. Vitali is a totaly different matter. I believe (if he is still what he was) he would weather an early onslought by Haye and grind out a late stoppage over Haye in a great fight. Thats the point im making about Haye, weather he wins or loses hes gonna do it in style, and thats what the heavyweights need right now, some much needed excitment, cos right now, i couldnt handle seeing another Klitchko-Thomson, chess boxing match. But having said that i do believe David Haye will be a legitimate heavyweight champion just as Lennox Lewis was, he'll probly lose a few in the process, and like Lewis he will always have his doubters. Only time will tell but make no mistake it will be exciting all the way. Cant wait for the Barret fight (thats my point again hes fighting a fringe contender but the fight is gonna be exciting for the fans, people want to tune in to see what happens!). Although Barret is never gonna be a champion himself he should put up a descent FIGHT and make it interesting. Peace
The fight could have gone either way and a draw seemed the fairest result but having said that Paul only has himself to blame for letting it get to that stage, Bendall shouldnt have been allowed to see the final bell and i believe if Paul had imposed his will on the guy and said to him self time to get this bum out of here instead of worrying that he's gonna run out of steam i'm sure he would have no problem stopping Bendall or any other middleweight in Britain, then once he's conquered Britain he'll have the confidence to take on the best in Europe and then who knows.
