Darren Barker, Matthew Macklin, Andy Lee, Martin Murray???

For me, Barker.

I think it'd be a Barker/Macklin final.

Lee is skilled but has average stamina and a pretty weak chin, going 50-50 with McEwan isn't great, considering he was later whacked by Quillin and handled by Ekundayo in PF.

Murray doesn't do anything special, he's fleet of foot but doesn't put much on his shots. I think he'd do well for a while against Macklin before eventually being overwhelmed with volume and perhaps stopped. Barker controls the distance well and would draw Murray forward, where he's not as effective.

I'd be tempted to say Macklin wins it, given that he's got more strings to his bow, he can fight aggressively pretty well, and retreat too, and take a decent shot - better than I think Barker can anyway.
