Syd Vanderpool frustrated: Lucas not interested

29.01.05 - By Syd "the Jewel" Vanderpool: It's understandable that Eric Lucas does not want to risk his imminent shot at the WBC title by fighting a dangerous southpaw like myself. But it is ridiculous and an insult to boxing fans for an ex-champion like Anthony Mundine to face an opponent like Darmel Castillo (9-7-1). Even Joe Calzaghe has not scraped that barrel..

I would of been more then happy to step in at the last minute to face Mundine as it would of been just a sparring session for me anyways. You don't need to ask Mundine for a response, as it will be the same as Eric Lucas's response, "He is not in our plans for the moment". Translation... I don't want to get my ass kicked!!!
