Photos: Darren Barker Batters Kerry Hope at Olympia
Olympia, London - Middleweight contender Darren Barker (24-1, 15 KOs), back for the first time since the KO loss to Sergio Martinez 14 months ago, battered former European champion Kerry Hope (18-5, 1 KO) over four rounds. Hope was down in the fourth round and his corner would later throw in the towel.
So far Macklin and Barker KO'd their opponents after getting KO'd by Martinez. Why people continue to say Martinez is ducking Golovkin? I would prefer to see him fight some more then put him as a guy Martinez should watch…Comment by D-MiZe on 12-10-2012
Good performance but I don't read too much into it. Barker needs to get back in the mix early next year and hopefully meet Macklin/Murray. Shame McEwan has dropped off.Comment by 110110110 on 12-10-2012
Martinez crushed barker and knocked him outComment by ShoulderRoll on 12-10-2012
All I'm saying is....why does GGG get so much hype? Proksa isn't a world beater. (and neither is Gabriel Rosado.) Let him beat a few world class opponents first before you can crown him.Comment by r__mutt on 12-09-2012
