I was impressed with his performance last night. He also grabbed the attention of journalists across the pond.



Still only 24. 23-0 with over 100 rounds in the bank. And despite his record on paper suggesting he's not a puncher, he has stopped his last three opponents.

Will he get to world level? How would he fare against the likes of Warrington, Valdez, Russell Jr, Santa Cruz?

Think it's a bit early to be talking about World titles, let's see him in with a Martinez or a Walsh before we get too excited.

My inkling was right
This is the thing...

I don't follow the domestic scene closely, and the first time I saw Gill was the fight before last. On the eye test...I thought fucking hell...he looks way better than I expected, but it was tempered by the opponent. However, skill is skill to some extent and then the other questions need answering...plus the skill cannot be judged off a handful of rounds.

Last night, I was VERY impressed by Wood...again...I'd not seen him fight before, but technically he looked great. But levels matter and getting too carried away based on a one sided bout against nobody is silly...your reaction to the Gill fight before this loss sums that up well.
