Paps landed the cleaner punches . Hannant was wild. Hannat is fit as he has competed in triathlons or marathons. One of them . Fitness was never his issue. he showed heart but that doesn't necessarily win you the fight.
Everyone talked up Paps but he hasnt got anymore experience than Hannant , just because he has a bloodline to a heavyweight champion doesnt mean it flows in him. In saying that he looked ok without being great. He wore whatever Hannant threw at him

Junior is one I think can make it as a boxer and probably Earl too with some training.
yeah Earl has done a lot of mixed martial arts in his 4yr ban from footy so wasn't shocked there.

I read it papa expected to be better, Hannant did really well but Papa took that 2 rounds to 1 as backed up by the judges.

Yep, this is how I saw it too. Papa’s humility and high standards resulted in disappointment. Hannant’s enthusiasm and surprising self-confidence made him think he he’d done better than he had. Also helped him compete so well.

Hannant was way better than I expected but no way did he win that.

Counter point:

all evidence to the contrary, if he could throw them, he'd be in a different place right now :lol:
