Proof positive Quigg is not on Frampton’s level. I doubt they fight, but it’s clear Carl KOed Scott inside six with those sloppy skills of his.Posted October 8, 2013 3:16 pm
When the Quigg fight ended my initial thought was ‘draw’. I’m a Quigg fan but he just left his charge a little bit late for me to pull out a clear win. However, he did show that he had the beating of the Cuban once he let his hands go and rattled off the cmobinations to head and body. Good close fight bewteen 2 well-matched opponents but I think Quigg will be a bit more disappointed than the Cuban this morning…Posted October 7, 2013 5:51 am
What belt did Quigg win/defend last night? Thought Rigondeaux was the WBA champ in his division. Way too many belts floating around these days. I remember when you had to beat a champion to become a champion rather than getting a majority draw against a contender, which on balance I thought was probably a fair result.Posted October 6, 2013 10:36 am
Should say 40 plus amateur fights. Also Quigg won easily here but the judges saw it different.Posted October 6, 2013 9:50 am
Just watched Joshua gain and what the feck was the writer watching. Yes Joshua held his head up a bit and needs to tighten up but his speed of punch, jab and variety was good to see. His power in his shots was evident when hit the Italian lad he hurt him with his jab. A good combo to finish too. I would suggest the author actually watch the fight and comment on what he see instead of the biased nonsense he wrote. Idjit.Posted October 6, 2013 9:49 am
The draw was a disgrace as Quigg clearly took that fight. Reminds me of when Michael Brodie was robbed in his own back yard against Willie Jorrin a few years ago at this very same weight. I think Quigg should make a couple of defences, wait for Frampton to win another version of the title and then fight a unification with more money on the table.Posted October 6, 2013 9:06 am
Surprised by the lack of comment about Quigg v Salinas. Excellent fighters, very skillful. Great tactical fight, real skills on display. Why the lack of interest?
Dont think Frampton lost any sleep last night….Posted October 6, 2013 7:48 am
Quigg v Frampton should happen now. The timing is right for both of them. They should be tested against each other and it would do them both good if they really want to move up and take on top end world level fighters (my money would be on Frampton). Of course it won’t happen as their promoters want to milk the cow. When the fight is made can someone wake me up?Posted October 6, 2013 5:43 am
oh and joshua’s post fight interview wasn’t as charismatic as muhammad ali
he didnt fight on the inside like tyson
shame on him
whoever wrote this article is a whopperPosted October 6, 2013 5:21 am
Really good nights boxing. You had 5 really interesting and quite varied fights. The other one being Campbell who looks really exciting. Interesting to compare him to DLH. Time will tell…Posted October 6, 2013 4:56 am
I don’t think Joshua’s defence is as good as Mayweathers either… Can’t believe that detail was omitted from the article.Posted October 6, 2013 4:54 am
Can’t believe Wladimir Klitchko’s name was mentioned when discussing Joshua’s debut. How on earth is that a relevant comparison? Article wasn’t too bad until I read that bit. Fishing for replies Jeff??Posted October 6, 2013 4:41 am
Joshua really shouldn’t be topping the bill though. That’s the same problem that Kahn and Harrison faced, being overexposed when they were still learning.Posted October 6, 2013 4:39 am
Joshua’s début. he had 20 odd amateur fights and won a n Olympic gold plus silver in worlds. He admits he is a work in progress. What the want the second coming of Ali? He did a job and will get better ok.Posted October 6, 2013 4:03 am
You’re criticising a fighter because he didn’t look like the world heavyweight champion in his professional debut. Seriously, Jeff this is absolutely terrible journalism. If you have to stoop to this level to get replies it’s probably time to look for other work. There’s a village down the road that’s crying out for a half decent idiot, I think you more than fit the profile.Posted October 6, 2013 3:51 am
Think this writer is being overly critical of Joshua! Although he didnt show a lot of veriety you could tell there was some nerves, it was his pro debut and was top of the bill! Thought punches were very solid and accurated once he let his hands go. My only critisim was his chin was a little high but a very impressive debut.
Only in boxing can you be critical of a guy who in his first professional fight won by first round knockout against an undefeated opponent.Posted October 6, 2013 3:30 am
Mick the Marmalizer
What of Lee Selby then? & what’s next for him? He has unfinished business with Samir Mouneimne which I’m sure he would like to avenge, although a crack at EBU champion Alexander Miskirtchian may be more tempting.
Well, looks like a British fighter almost got jobbed by the judges, in Britain. Quigg won that very clearly. So much for Britain being loaded with hometown judges. As for Joshua, it was his first pro fight, so he was hardly likely to look amazing.Posted October 6, 2013 12:20 am
