Lets hope he can stay on the straight and narrow this time and concentrates 100% on boxing because he is a great talent.

He was well on his way to a title shot. You get the impression he just can't stop getting himself into trouble. Buying a gun was a very stupid move.

Kirkland is exciting to watch but doesn't have the best defense.

I don't think he would have much luck with Cotto, providing Cotto still has the goods, nor would he beat Martinez and would have trouble with Williams.

He's got it tough.

Dentist Roll Eyes OK, wanna buy a bridge? I really would like to see him turn things around, and although you see some accomplish that after an initial offense, it seems that repeat offenders like Kirkland just keep getting into trouble. Almost like they're just wired that way or something. Unfortunate considering his talent.

To be fair, it's a stupid offense. He just didn't turn up to the gym where his parole officer was because he had to get a gumshield.

No big deal.
