The UK heavyweight boxing scene is looking stronger than it has for years.
Below David Haye and Derek Chisora, we have Tyson Fury, Sam Sexton, David Price and Tom Dallas. Plus there is Reading's Michael Sprott, who seems to have been around for ever. This evening at York Hall John McDermott fights Hackney's Larry Olubamiwo for the Southern Area Heavyweight title.
Olubamiwo is a knockout merchant, with Popeye arms and appears to be in a rush to get wherever it is he is going. McDermott has fought the better oppponents in his careeer, has had dogs luck (being robbed of decisions against Danny Williams and Tyson Fury) and is more than due a win. His upper cut may be the ideal punch against a bigger, slugging man. I can't decide whether Olubamiwo takes McDermott in the first two rounds, or the fight goes on for longer, in which case you have to favour McDermott by points or even a stoppage.
I might have to toss a coin on this one.
