The diminutive Barnes is attempting to win the WBC World Flyweight Title in only his 6th professional fight this evening. Rosales is younger, taller, more experienced and a better boxer technically than barnes. However I think it might be worth a few quid on Barnes at 3.15, fighting in front of a fervent Irish crowd. Logic and reason say that Rosales should be too good for Barnes, but Rosales has been to these shores twice before, losing to Khal Yafai in Shefffield and Andrew Selby in Cardiff. Now he is facing Barnes in Belfast. I may be barking up the wrong tree completely, as Barnes is not a great boxer, but I wonder how the judges might read the fight, and just how badly Rosales will want it in face of a determined onslaught from the 31 year old. I'm not betting too much on it, but the 3.15 for the home fighter looks quite tempting, granted that Barnes is not as good a boxer as Yafai or Selby.

Not to be. Barnes not good enough or fit enough.
