No problem at all Statto. You were OK with it. I wasn't sure myself altogether until OTW said. Good on him.
Meh,I am not one of these desperate to have 'found' someone.

It's the same for boxing as it was my other loves music and football.Everyone keen to have 'discovered' the next big thing.

John Hoolan is one of these guys.

Taylor's next opponent - Zero KO's and never fought outside of Argentina, classic Matchroom picking the wankest champion to 'unify' with.

Didn't know her mate,but checked her out. Only around 3 defeats,never been stopped herself. I know Katie was an excellent amateur but she's hardly into double figures as a pro. As Argentinian men can be unknown quantities and quite often turn out to be dark horses maybe the same applies to the women? If we compare her opponents to our last bunch of olympic mens maybe this girl isn't too bad.
I know there'd possibly be sticking points to such a match but it looks to me like there could be a build up to a match within the next 18 months or so with our own Chantelle Cameron.

In fairness to Matchroom, the IBF champion Bustos would be stronger than the WBO champion Volante. Persoon with the WBC obviously strongest.

Promotionally though, IBF and WBA is the staple Matchroom unification route - Froch, Joshua, Burnett, Burns

It's nothing to do with Matchroom hand picking opponents and every thing to do with how poor women's boxing is.

Seriously, we have some incredibly Knowledgeable posters on here who should know better than giving this crap attention it doesn't deserve.

Maybe there should be a sub section for Women's boxing?

That’s harsh.

There’s hardly any threads on it,most of them are full of scathing criticism and you don’t have to bloody read it James.

Not impressed with that opponent, they should bring Farias over so I can stalk her without having to trek over to Argentina.
