Eastman is fighting in November for the British middleweight title having lost his last three fights...although the three fights were all against top class opposition (hopkins, abraham and miranda).

if he wins this fight, do you think theres any chance of him getting another shot at, and winning, a world title?

Yea man.. Eastman can win.. That stoppage was premature when he fought Miranda.. He had him. Untill the ref stepped in.. Most the shots did not land when Miranda was throwing...

Premature stoppage? hmmmmmm. Did you watch the same fight I did?
I wouldn't want you to be my ref if I looked like this:

Eastman could get a title shot, but winning is a different story. He got taken to task by Hopkins and Abraham, and got sent home early by Miranda, and there's no way he's beating Taylor.

Look at that stoppage again.. Not by pics.. You will see that Miranda landed 3 out of 9 punches.. The 1st one being the most damaging one.. But Eastman took it good. Eastman got a good chin.. And you know if that fight was to continue that Eastman could have had Miranda.. Miranda did a lil Harlem shake when going back to his corner.. I forgot what round it was.. But Eastman is known for a good chin.. And the ref should have gave him a lil more time to recover.. But i can't blame anyone... Eastman should have took a knee. But didn't.. He is a good fighter. He will get aa shot again.. Just watch and see!

I guess now he's really a gatekeeper of the division.

i wouldn't say it was ****. it was interesting but not that great to watch.

he's too experienced to get himself DQ'd. if he came up against taylor he would probably use spoiling tactics to stop taylor hitting him cleanly, but i don't think it would be enough.

anyway, he won't fight taylor. he's not in the top ten of any organisation right now so unless like he was saying hennessey can pull something out of the hat, he won't be fighting for a title next year.
