I can't stand watching BJS, incredibly dull to watch. Maybe he would be more aggressive vs Smith because Smith didn't seem to enjoy the pressure and activity but it's not really BJS style. Smith was terrible yesterday so this fight at least today is not one i can get hyped for. I would hope Smith by KO but it would almost certainly go the 12 and probably be a bore but who knows.

I understand that styles makes fights but BJS must be really eager for this fight now. Smith showed a complete lack of ring IQ, ring generalship or ability to switch up a game plan that quite clearly wasn't working. BJS should box rings round him.

I think this would be a good match up, If the right BJS turned up then I think he causes Smith all kinds of problems.

That's twice he's fucked off from Ingle to Ben, what's going on there.
I read somewhere that he felt he needed more one on one time, but Dom couldn't provide it due to the size of his stable of fighters.

Can't remember where I read it, so it could be total mince.

It is weird that he keeps yo-yoing between them.

Nah, that's true.

At least it's what Ingle has said.

Listened to his life story with Tris Dixon today. I thought he came across well.

There was a funny Fat Mick anecdote, where John Murray was fighting in the States and as they were boarding the plane Mick phoned and told them they werent getting paid as much as they'd been promised.

Then cus he thought that Murray wasn't at his best (in a win) he was screaming that Murray is shit and Gallagher is shit :lol:

Is it me or does anyone think Smith v Saunders will end painfully for Billy?

People can talk about the Ryder fight, but stylistically Ryder was just a nightmare for Smith. A strong compact come forward fighter who doesn't give you a chance to throw singles and reset yourself will always trouble Callum. Chudinov for example would give Smith problems.

Billy is unlikely to be able to push Smith back and is going to find it hard to potshot and mover against a man whose really two divisions above him with much bigger dimensions.

Bill will be exhausted after 6 rounds with Callum and will get stopped in my opinion.
