    Yup he has, seemed like he was going to get derailed by that Badou Jack loss but he's done very well to mount a comeback.
    Callum Smith was in line for a title shot against Dirrell but that didn't materialise for some reason so I'm hoping he can progress past the semi-final too.

    I have heard of him. He's signed to Frank Warren isn't he? I saw his name on the Saunders Monroe card but haven't had the chance to see him fight yet. Nice to see a British Light Heavyweight prospect on the come up, the division's been blown wide open since Ward retired. He's ranked by the WBO but there are a few guys still waiting in the queue ahead of him, he could well get a chance soon in the next few years as a mandatory though if he carries on knocking people out in the same fashion.

    Yes he's with frank warren.saw him fight 3 times on bt,before I got rid of it.really aggresive come forward fighter and massive for the weight.
    I think he could be the anthony joshua of the light heavyweights.

    Future all-british showdown with Nathan Cleverly somewhere down the line perhaps?...
    Finally, a decent challenger for Saunders has just been announced, David Lemieux. Hope it lives up to it's billing.

    @redmosquito @Master Khan @LittleBigPlanet

    Saunders turned out a very slick performance the other night after having sat on his world title for so long.

    The less said about Loma v Rigo the better :facepalm

    Biggest shock though has to be James DeGale losing on the scorecards to somebody he personally hand-picked on a night that was supposed to be his homecoming!


    The schedule for the new year isn't looking amazing at the mo but hopefully it'll start looking up once more fights get arranged.

    Tbh I thought he had the Badou Jack fight in the bag until the knock down in the 12th. Very disappointed to say the least. The fact that he ripped his belt from Lucian Bute by decisioning him in his backyard made me think he could go on to achieve big things.

    Think Amir Khan has been making noises saying he wants to fight Jeff Horn while Kell Brook has decided he wants he wants to move to 154. Khan has fought at MW before so they could still be matched in theory but looks like they obviously want different things at the moment.
