I think from the opening stages we could see that, different class and I think Fowler banged some weight on, looked massive compared, thatís why I donít think he can stay at that weight

As I said below, two to three rounds earlier. Yes he was taking shots but he was not exactly getting gist for me, just out classed. He will have learned a bit from that though

And I agree what was said earlier, it is the corners job to protect him, they asked him clearly several times if he wanted to continue and he said he wanted the extra rounds. They both know each other, if I had have been there I would have let him carryon. If he was getting smashed all over the towel would have been in

Interesting Fowlerís Froch style though, might turn out to suit him, that jab is a proper weapon with weight behind it, not the best athlete though for me and struggles for the full 12.

The fight should have been ended 4 rounds earlier , towel should have come in , thats how fighters end up seriously injured , he was never gonna knock fowler out so had no chance ,bad show from his corner.

I agree but he wasnít exactly hurt ???

he was getting his ears boxed off he would of needed a knockout to win and that was never going to happen ??? so what do you do wait till he gets hurt ? or pull him out to save him from himself ?

He was talking to his corner and wanted to stay in the fight, canít knock him for that. Two, possibly 3 rounds too many for me Gerry but that was his choice?

Different levels there sadly, brave performance though from Harper

Still not, convinced about Fowler as a world beater as yet though, think he will struggle with the weight and fitness level

Ding, ding, looking forward to this

Well, first round down, donít know about Fowler sparring with Froch, Iím guessing he has been coached by him, low fast leading hand jab and powerful right, looks like Froch

To be fair I expect him to win, good fighter but Iím hoping for a good fight

Saying that, not seen a lot of Harper
