  • I figured the prospects would come calling for Coffie after his last few fights. It’s been a really quick turnaround for him after he knocked off Darmani Rock just a couple of years ago and was pretty hot in the division.

  • If ref Frank Cappuccino was alive we could have Michael Coffie vs Richard Lartey for the WBC Espresso belt. The WBC would have zero shame in that money grab.

    • That’s hilarious! Btw, does anyone else miss the late legendary ring announcer Ed Derian introducing the man-in-charge, referee Frank Cappucciiiiiiiiino?

  • Campbell Hutton is a phoney-fighting a guy with 7 losses-sorry this kid is going nowhere

  • Joshua vs Franklin is perfect matchmaking by Joshua promoter-Franklin will mix it up but not aggressive or confident enough to try to finish

  • Is Fabio Wardley for real or what? We all love a good heavyweight prospect but they are almost never the next big thing. Looking him up, he’s 28 years old with no high level amateur experience to speak of (boxrec is kinda weird about including amateur fights) For somebody just starting out, he has some pretty impressive names on his record, including a KO over Eric Molina and other seasoned journeyman types. Not saying he’s beaten world beaters, but he hasn’t built his record and complete tomato cans so far. Definitely will keep an eye on him.

  • Ed Derian was great back in the day! I like this Wardley Polite-Coffie duke. Both guys are 6’5. I think Wardley has the edge. He has consistently performed better against a higher level of competition. Jonathan Rice is big tough and awkward, but elite level guys dont lose to him twice.
