Helenius er virkelig ringe syntes jeg. Ham har jeg ingen fidus til. Tror mere på Price om nogle år. ærgeligt at Price vs Fury(Fury har en glaskæbe uden lige) ikke er til at lave. Kunne være fedt med et møde mellem vinderen af Price-Fury og Haye Chisora. Tror selvfølgelig på Haye som vinder af de opgør:-)
Det bliver nok ikke aldrende Antonio Tarver, der skal give nyt liv i sværvægt. Han har de sidste par år konstant kaldt Klitschkøerne ud, men i går var han heldig med at få uafgjort mod Lateef Kayode i cruiservægt.

6’8 heavyweight Richard Towers (14-0, 10 KOs) scored a ninth round TKO over Gregory Tony (17-3, 14 KOs) to claim the vacant EBU-EU belt. Towers dropped Tony in round two, round seven, three times in round eight. Tony finally stopped fighting in round nine citing an arm injury and the bout was halted. Tony had his chance in round five when he battered Towers from pillar to post and Towers was very lucky to get out of the round
Unbeaten heavyweight Bryant “By-By” Jennings (14-0, 6 KOs) scored a one-sided ten round unanimous decision over Steve “Freight Train” Collins (25-2-1, 18 KOs) to claim the vacant USBA heavyweight title.

In an important clash between heavyweight contenders, former light heavyweight and cruiserweight world champion Tomasz Adamek (46‐2, 29 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over “Fast” Eddie Chambers (36-3, 18 KOs) on Saturday night at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. It was a tactical fight with Adamek clearly busier and Chambers quicker and more accurate. In the end, judges scored it 116-112, 116-112, 119-109. Chambers appeared to suffer an injury to his left arm early in the fight.
Den afgørelse var helt hen i vejret. Selv med kun sin højre arm(han rev sin venstre bicep over i 1. omgang) styrede Eddie Chambers begivenhederne. Jeg under virkelig "Fast Eddie" en ny og hurtig returkamp, eller en kamp mod Arreola etc etc.

Ikke helt så spændende en aften som ventet. En defensiv og rolig Kingpin kom aldrig op i gear. Det gjorde Hamer til gengæld. Og han havde den rette taktik mod 3 større modstandere, som han vandt over. Men selv om Hamer er hurtig, er han nok for lille til at gøre sig gældende i fremtiden. Og mon vi ser mere til Tom Dallas? Nu er han blevet stoppet 3 gange i træk.
