Rhodes Flattens Buchanan in One

RyanIt’s been a while since Ryan Rhodes demonstrated the type of form he did yesterday in knocking out game Paul Buchanan in the opener. Traditionally, known for his speed of hand and elusive style – at least those were his trademarks in a youth that saw him capture the British title in record time – the knockout power displayed has been an absent friend in recent years.

Congratulations to Rhodes on a successful return, close to a year since his valiant effort to beat Gary Lockett. Hopefully, the back injuries that threatened to curtail his professional career are now overcome and the much needed activity can now be restored. It would certainly be interesting to see Rhodes get another shot with better competition to prepare him for it.

    I was at the fight and it was a great performance by Rhodes. after 11 months out he was surprisingly sharp. lets hope he will keep up the progresion and make the division more interesting than it has been recently.

    Well done to Ryan Rhodes, this man can truly claim to be back now and greater things should follow!

    I do hope so Scott B, because to date I still maintain he’s underachieved in his career.

    I’d like to see him fight Michael Jones or Ossie Duran next if the old favourites of Alexander etc can no longer be dragged into a ring.
