Actually, I gotta give SLOWbamba credit – he has looked sharper in his last 3 outings, or so. Seems like his combos are a little tighter and a bit more defensively responsible.

Watch Oos-Bry

@Petrus Watch the fight on Youtube (round 10-11ish) and the commentator Steve Farhood actually says that Oosthuizen turned down the Froch fight, nobody has made anything up and if you didn’t watch the fight yourself how can you qualify for an opinion on the matter :?: :?:

Which was when, exactly? Or did you just make that up, like the guy who “heard” that Tommy turned down a fight with Froch?

Tommy Gun’s a hot prospect. He’s really slick in the ring: good generalship, skills, jab, lateral movement, and coordination. He needs a little work on an upper cut, and he’s not a big banger. However, that can change in a year or so as he puts on a little more weight and power. He’s lot’s of fun to watch though, if you like fast boxers. I’d say he needs 2 or 3 more bouts before going up against Froch.

Anyone else hear on the commentary that Oosthuizen turned down the Froch fight?

Posted August 3, 2012 3:56 pm 


If that’s true…then it tells you a lot about the guy.

I agree. In South Africa, IBO belts are for guys like Hekkie Budler and Chris van Heerden – well-conditioned club fighters who are not capable of winning a real world title. A genuinely gifted fighter like Oosthuizen should be looking to win one of the big four belts – and in fairness, his promoters are trying.

There was nothing competitive about the decision. I have no idea where the judges found three rounds to give to Bryant. You could make a case for him winning one round, the sixth. “Half his size”? Dude, that is just a s**t-ignorant comment. “Size” in boxing is not determined by height but by weight – therefore boxers fight within a weight division, not a height division. If height determined size, then at 6’4″ everyone Tommy has fought (except Pryor) has been “half his size”. Bottom line is that with the exception of one or two wild lunges in every round looking for the one-punch KO, Bryant was not prepared to make a fight of it, and spent the whole night trying unsuccessfully to keep out of range of Tommy’s jab. If he had wanted to fight, like Marcus Johnson did, he would have been roughed up just like Johnson was. And that’s what lies in store for the slow, uncoordinated but aggressive Carl Froch.

Vanihm: We’re only find out when he moves up in class. He is hiding behind that rediculas IBO title, so as I said why not match him with Brian Magee who holds the equilly phony WBA interim title. I’d have personally prefered to have seen Oosthuizen take the South African title & then challenge for the Commonwealth belt. These stupid alphabet titles are killing our sport!

I’d say this Tommmy guy looks horrendously overrated. Basically a competitive decision over a guy half his size and who’s only big win was over a shot Librado Andrade. But even the Ring seems to have bought into the hype.

I’d like to see Tommy fight Brian MaGee next. :idea: Or failing that put out a challenge to Commonwealth champion George Groves.

Sounds like this guy may just be a player.
