Yeah i think that's a disctinct possibility, although Johannsen can fight. But Burns does look like he's a big talent, and I would certainly favour him

i didn't realise burns had that much of a height adavntage. carl will have to be hugely aggressive and willing to eat multiple jabs if he even wants to land a shot on burns.

well from what i've heard, this fight didn't quite go as anyone except the most hardcore johanneson fans expected.

just watched the fight. Great performance from carl, dont think anyone expected him 2 b so dominant, dropped burns 3 times (although he didnt look seriously hurt on any occasion) and hardly lost a round. Credit to burns aswel he didnt half make a fight of it even after the knock downs he was still swingin for the fences but johanneson didnt let him breathe for a second.
