Darren Barker is not a fighting man.
Yesterday on the gloves are off, you could tell he had ZERO desire and i strongly get the impression that he really doesn't give a **** about boxing. I give him credit for beating Geale, but he kind of lucked out.
He may be able to edge past Sturm, but i seriously doubt he will be World champion this time next year (unless they feed him Sainsbury's checkout operators)
I know all this makes me sound like i think i'm a mind reader, but it seems he has accomplished all his boxing goals by becoming champion. His eye is off the ball and all he cares about now is cashing out (he even admitted this).
His heart isn't in the game and he will retire after his next loss.
