I agree with your last point and I think on the whole the rankings do to.

he isn't top 10 yet by any means but he is certainly higher then 26. tbh i think he should be around 17, he is a top 20 ww

cheers for the mention atticus on the ash ranked above me point... Jay makes fair points with the recent results from us both since we fought too tho, gota be a tough one... and was a v close (and real decent) fight! howeverrr i since beat Lee, who beat him. but yeah, Ive defo taken some losses since!
Level of competition weve faced since though (turner aside for him) has been a massive difference in my opinon. But its ok, ill be back in the mix as soon as a few things are sorted my end, and set myself / prove myself solidly in the top 10.

Certainly didn't want that to sound like I was having a dig mate, just trying to provide a summation of points to be taken into consideration by the guys on the panel! Was definitely a cracking fight as I remember it. Could have gone either way, real clash of styles.

nah didnt think u was having a dig at all! u was just making a fair point

You can't put a limit on anything. The more you dream, the farther you get
Paul Cook wasn't 11-4 when he fought Walter though Ian he was 10-2 so that changes everything
I agree though his first few fights were a bit ish, his last 4 opponents have been really experienced guys being 8-9, 10-2, 25-12 and 13-15 so he is stepping up... Maybe he'll make the leap in his next fight.
