Two fights in two years, an utter lack of world class experience. Yep, this seems about right.

I think if he does fight hide he will lose....

Granted he has been unlucky, but he doesn't exactly set the world alight and sticking with Warren won't exactly help his cause...

Enzo Maccarinelli represents everything that makes me sick about British Boxing, especially Frank Warren.

I agree, this is a total farce but with Macca what else did you expect?! He is getting a WORLD TITLE by fighting a nobody...as ever. At least he does have to fight for it I suppose, rather than just inherit it outright which I'm sure he/warren would have preferred.

Sure, there's a case for the old argument 'he can only fight who's put in front of him' but for crying out loud, is he not so embarassed by this kind of thing that he wants to gain some honour and respect among fans by leaving warren. I know, he's not the greatest cruiser around, but he's not the worst either and could mix it with some of the names. Get some self respect Enzo!

I think you'll find it's not Macca's wish to fight bums. See my article; a friend knows the ins and outs of what's going on in the Calzaghe camp and it aint Macca's fault.

BTW he's tied into a contract with Warren, which means he's legally binded to stay with him .....until it ends. He can't just walk away and start fighting for a nother promotor, it'd be a breach of contract and he'd get sued.

I totally feel where you are coming from because Warren's fighters typically have padded records, and I'll probably get shot down for this but even Joe's is. Manfredo, Bika etc etc. However, I do think Macca is a world class fighter, who got beaten by the best in the world Haye, I don't think we'll ever see another fighter like Haye for a long time.
However I do feel that Macca is capable of mixing it with the best, did u see his 12 rounder against Braithwaite? He showed very good skills, speed and power for 12 consistent rounds against a dangerous fighter (admittedly past his prime). I'd like to see Macca leave teh WBO (Warren Boxing Org) belt, fight Huck for the European, which he said he's willing to do and go for the WBC strap.
What happened to O'Neil Bell, he was a good fighter, huge puncher, thatd be a good test and get him a bit of publicity Stateside.
