Just as long as they illegally lead in with there head constantly, aslong as they get a few cheeky shots in illegally on the break, aslong as they illegally hold his arms to prevent any inside fighting for 10 seconds every 10 seconds, aslong as they illegally punch while they hold his head down bent over and aslong they have a ref who doesn't give two hoots then your right Socrates Kirkland is in big trouble.
To quote Ricky Hatton, it's not a tickling contest.
If he struggles to deal with, let's face it, very limited and basic spoiling tactics how is he going to cope with speed, lateral movement, different angles. He got a gimme last night otherwise he'd have lost.
If it's not a body bag or a slugger Kirkland will struggle. Look at his record and who he has fought, I just don't see why people have such a hard-on for him.
