Abraham you make me sick now. The way you became 2 weight world champion by winning the WBO belt over Stieglitz makes me throw up. A guy who proved that he has no chance against the SMW top fighters, yet he gets handed the WBO title.. WBO you’re corrupt and Abraham you make me sick!

I just checked out britishboxers & they have up dated there rankings. They have Liam Walsh rated @ #7 in the UK @ 130Lb.

Ive just checked the WBO rankings myself and they clearly havnt been updated for a while. It sais the SFW WBO title is vacant, but Rocky Martinez won that title last month. So i should imagine Walsh having won the WBO euro title since then will push him up higher than 13th. WBA rankings havnt been updated yet either, they still have Felix Sturm ranked as Middleweight champ lol

It’s Walsh I feel sorry for. He should be looking to retain his undefeated record + add British & European titles to his Commonwealth 130Lb belt. It’s Frank Warren I blaim. Burns is in a no win situation here.

Its just a keep busy fight. Guys have been doing it for years. Why do you think records from back in the day were so long? Guys were fighting more often to stay busy. Ricky could have easily waited till march and had a nice break, but hes keeping busy. Walsh is being touted by many as a future world champion (can’t see it myself). Hes got speed, power, and an awkward style. And he is primarily a south paw who can switch hit

I just tried to check out Liam Walsh in a few rankings & came up with. WBO #13, Boxrec #68 & IBO #56 @ 130Lb. The WBC,WBA, IBF, Secondsout, Fightnews & ESB don’t have him rated. Sorry but FW should of come up with someone better. Unfortunatlly Liam’s gonna lose his unbeaten record.

Since Valero, Demarcos comp has dropped, and although he hasnt lossed since then, i still think that fight took something out of him

To be honest i think Demarco is past his best, and i think broner wins a close UD. Then i think Burns beats Broner, and hopefuly doesnt get robbed. Liam Walsh is not to be over looked. Hes inexperienced as a pro, but he has captured the comonwealth belt at SFW, and A Euro belt at lightweight. He put in a poor performance against Urbano last time out, but still won almost every round and won by KO.

Daly Jr: I can’t see Broner getting past DeMarco.

And what have you accomplished thats better than that? People like you are too quick to criticise

Mick the Marmalizer

Oh WOW! Not the prestigious WBO European title? The last I heard Gavin Rees was the ligitimate European champion. Okay Walsh maybe Commonwealth champion, which is fine, but the WBO Euro bauble means bugger all.

mick the marmalade man…….., Burns is fighting ‘the little known Liam walsh’ to stay busy whilst Broner is fighting Demarco, then he fights Broner. And it will happen! Oh and by the way, Liam Walsh is WBO european champion

Abraham vs Bouadla would make for a good European title fight.

Mick the Marmalizer

Off subject: Hey fellers have you heard the news! WBO 135Lb titlest Ricky Burns is to defend against little known Liam Walsh. WOW this is just what the boxing public “doesn’t” want! :-(

Pavlik should fight Balzsay (regular WBA champ) then Abraham (WBO champ) instead of Ward

Posted October 24, 2012 3:16 am

Abrham is a titlest and that is all. Andre Ward is the Champion at 168

@hidalgo, I was thinking less embarassing for him, and more for the boxing situation of having 4 belts (plus supertitles etc). He says “It was just important to be world champion again”, and I think the context in which he is saying it makes it clear that he isn`t saying “It is important to be no1 in the division”. I know there are lots of paper-champs around, but with Abraham it is just so explicit seeing as three guys in the division have already beaten him, none of which is avenged, and you have Kessler, Bute and some other young guns who would be a very good shout to beat him too.

I actually like Abraham – I htink he is braver than a lot of other German based middleweights/supermiddleweights have been, and fighting on vs Miranda with his jaw broken was brave as hell, but post the Froch fight his own coach was calling him a coward, and then post the Ward fight people are wondering if he has a place anywhere now that he can`t get back to middle. Beating Stieglitz doesn`t get you from that trough to the top of the table again, and I`d like to see him recognise that and indicate he`ll go back after the guys who beat him rather than say “I am a world champion: and fight and load of Boudhla’s in Germany tying up that belt.

paper champion everyone knows that…what I cant believe is the guy he’s fighting is actually shorter than him…so now not only are they picking c grade guys for him to defend against but theyt are making sure they have no physical advantage over him whatsoever, now thats what I call matchmaking…

It`s kind of embarassing to call yourself a world champion” What’s embarassing about it? And how do you figure he’s “calling” himself a world champion. Abraham IS a champion. He just won a legit WBO title. As for his next opponent–pfffffffffffffffttt!!!

Posted October 23, 2012 5:52 pm 


Peej

Thats why he is not the world champ, Andre Ward is. Abraham is just happy to have a belt and not defend it against any top fighter because he know he will be beat in this weight division

It`s kind of embarassing to call yourself a world champion when 3 active fighters in teh same division have already spanked you, and another one or two at least would be favoured to do the same.
