Good point , seems to have disappeared.
Another all action good to watch fighter , didn't half take some shellacking in his last few fights tho .
he did, been through a lot, beat a gambling addiction, had some good insight on it after, sounds a horrific addiction. Think he has a successful building firm now. His dad is very active in the ex boxers associations, he does a lot for the sport, good to see.

What happened to Sam Webb? He was a very good light middle weight. Great skills

He's 42 now mate, not fought in 11 years, lost 2 of his last 3 so presume he retired. I remember him beating Eastman's brother, that fight retired Eastman as the poor sod collapsed after.

While Williamson is a good fighter, on his day Cheeseman would have won well, but he was already on the slide, been in some really hard fights, his win against Metcalf was a war

Lots of people seem to be backing Baraou, I can see it from the amount of wars Egg has been in and Baraou's amaeteur pedigree, but Baraou hasn't really lived up to the hype, in his first real step up again Jack Culcay, he was disappointing and lost, who has he actually beaten? I don't think being with the dark fraud Booth helped him much, and he's now moved on from him.

Can Baraou outbox Egg? Sure, can he outfight him? The remains to be seen, I give Egg every chance if he can take Baraou out of his rhythm, fascinating fight.

i thought he shouldve got the decision vs culcay (for perspective, average boxrec fan score from 18 scores was 116-112 baraou), who i think is better than sam too. has the right tools to outbox sam and make him look limited

baraou-culcay also has a 100 percent controversy rating on eye on the ring, meaning no one actually scored it for culcay lol. winning scores were from 115-113 to 118-110 baraou

of course, sam has home advantage so that has to be factored in

exciting fight. Sometimes Egg loses fight you'd expect him to win. And other times wins against the odds. I really hope Egg wins.

Yeah I saw it at the time and thought Baraou should've got the nod, but didn't feel it was conclusive against a past his peak Culcay. Baraou has beaten no-one of note since. I have yet to see him exert dominance over a credible opponent over 12 rounds. The jury is still out on him in my book, I'm open to him showing me.

Me too. He and Jon are great guys. I think Sam's got his work cut out on Friday.

I do too. Jon is one of the best souls in the sport. Very intelligent man too, writer and playwright.

That's his daughter in them isn't it? Recall her being in CBBCs the dumping ground where she was featured in a boxing gym (my daughter watched it at the time, I'm not a nonce, just to clarify).

Press Release

Wasserman Boxing is proud to confirm that Abass Baraou has signed a new deal with the company.

The world-rated super welterweight will continue to be promoted by Wasserman Boxing, under the guidance of Kalle and Nisse Sauerland, who have been by his side since he made his professional debut in 2018.

Baraou fights for the vacant EBU European Super Welterweight title on Friday night in Telford, against Sam Eggington.

The German is ranked at No7 with the World Boxing Association and the former European Amateur Championships gold medal winner, is ready to catapult his career to new heights this week by claiming the European crown.

Abass Baraou said: “I am happy to have signed a new deal with Wasserman Boxing and to carry on my mission to become world champion with Kalle and Nisse.

“There is nobody better than Wasserman Boxing to deliver the big fights I want and that all starts on Friday night, with the European title. And with Jorge Rubio as my coach, I feel very confident in the future.

“I have some huge opportunities ahead of me on the international stage this year and my team and I have a good plan to achieve my dreams. On Friday night, I become the new European champion and officially put the world title holders on notice.”

Kalle Sauerland, Global Head of Boxing at Wasserman, said: “Everyone at Wasserman is delighted that Abass will continue to be part of Team Wass and we can’t wait to help guide the next stage of his career.

“Abass is one of the world’s best super welterweights and he begins a huge 2024 by challenging for the European Super Welterweight title in a brilliant fight with Sam Eggington on Friday night.

“Abass is a sleeping giant at 154lbs and as he moves into his prime, he is ready for any and all-comers. This year is going to be a big one for Abass as he proudly flies the flag for his country and bids to become Germany’s next world champion.”

hahaahha just re-read this re the no-nonce clarification. I once said this years ago when I applied for a job as a youth worker, told them I love kids then followed it up with "not like a paedo....although it sounds paedoey". I stopped talking then.

this is looking more and more like a very hard fight. I really like Sam, was hoping they slide him to an easy world title fight, if there is such a thing. I like Sam's honesty too, he doesn't even like boxing or watch it.

His fight with Carlos Molina was a lot closer than sams with the same opponent. We know its a big ask and a hard fight but we will see on the night.
Thanks for the nice comments makes a change from the lads in the gym lol

Baraou was robbed vs Culcay.

I like Sam and Jon but I think hes taking a shellacking here. Fast accurate jabs will be piecing him up regularly. He has to get in there and put a hiding on Baraou or show some kind of new found boxing skills that I have yet to see in a fight. I'll pick Baraou by late stoppage
