    Yeah, BD I see Andy administering a frightful beating on Vera come 2/4. I see he with a 7th rd TKO stoppage with Vera's trainer throwing in the towel to save his fighter's life.

    "¢Ran into middleweight Andy Lee of Ireland and trainer/manager (and HBO broadcaster) Emanuel Steward at Friday's Sergio Martinez-Paul Williams
    weigh-in at Caesars Atlantic City and after Lee fights Dec. 11 on the
    Klitschko-Chisora undercard, they have a very interesting fight lined
    up. Steward said they have a deal for Lee to face Brian Vera in a
    rematch on Feb. 4 on the ESPN2 "Friday Night Fights" card on Super Bowl
    weekend, which is why, with the Super Bowl at Cowboys Stadium, the
    boxing show is being planned for nearby Fort Worth. Lee told me he's
    wanted this rematch for a long time. Vera, of course, authored a major
    upset when he rallied to stop Lee, at the time considered one of the
    elite prospects in the sport, in the seventh round on ESPN2. Lee has won
    nine fights in a row since and sounded pumped to get a second chance at
    Vera, who is from Texas.

    Andy has a huge mountain to climb in beating dynamic Martinez. It should somewhat competitive for the first four rounds, then Sergio will drop the hammer something thereafter, then game over....

    Andy got messed around by HBO, so now he doesn't have the Martinez fight on HBO or the Vera rematch as the headliner on ESPN. HBO initially agreed that Andy was a suitable opponent, so he withdrew from the Vera fight. The deal with Martinez was as good as signed, but HBO did a U-turn at the last moment and said Andy was no longer a suitable opponent and they wouldn't have the fight.[​IMG] Sergio Mora is now fighting Vera instead, so Andy gets frozen out.

    Andy should be able to steam roll Bunema, who was once considered a can't miss top tier affeletic fighter until he was ruined by Sergio Martinez.

    This is a good stay busy fight for Andy. I hope he utilizes his jab and has fined tuned it from his last fight. If he is able to perfect it, and improve his head movement, he will be a major factor in the 160 lbs division.

    The TKO loss to Brian Vera certainly was disappointing for Lee. Boxrec has him ranked as #6 in the world right now. Truth is, there is no way Lee is beating Martinez, Gaele, Sturm, or Pirog. I just don't see it happening. He's still a very good fighter though.

    Right, the division is too hot for Lee, IMO...

    Andy beat the affelet by a UD. Like a I said a good stay busy fight, but nothing more. Reports are that Lee displayed a good jab the entire fight, so that is good. Now on to bigger and better fights.

    Andy Lee destroys Daryl Cunningham


    Former middleweight world title challenger Andy Lee (30-2, 20 KOs) scored a first round knockout against Daryl Cunningham (28-5, 11 KOs) on Wednesday night at the BB King Blues Club & Grill in New York City. Lee landed a right hand that rocked Cunningham then battered him to the deck just as referee Benjy Estevez was stopping the bout.

    Andy Lee needs to get back to competing at contender level, it doesn't do him justice fighting no names in rundown social clubs.

    Nice KO . Funny how the commentator speaks in Russian? the whole time except when he says "lucky punch."

    yes, that was a great KO by Lee, however, he looked bad in this fight. Getting dropped, and rocked throughout the fight. He had little balance and head movement. He and Booth are not working. He needs another trainer. Perhaps Andre Ward's trainer or Lonnie Shields. He has digressed since the passing of Manny Steward. Heck, in his fight with Chavez Jr, he was dominating a cruiser weight at the time of the fight. Against Jackson, he looked sorta like a shell of himself. He needs to 86 Booth ASAP.

    Perfect southpaw check hook. Don't know that Andy planned it, but that's what happened.

    Great news for Andy. But he better get a different trainer to correct his flaws from his last outing. He needs to improve his balance and perfect his jab to beat Quillin who moves a lot. He has the power to stop Quillin, he just needs to find a trainer to fine tune him. Or maybe his loss to Chavez took something away? Regardless, he better fix what was wrong from his last outing, in which his power bailed him out of a loss.

    I gotta admit Im a little bit nervous for Lee in this one. Quillin isnt a joke, and Lee is one of my favorite boxers. Id hate to see him lose another one.
