I think Matt Skelton should be given his shot in America at one of the heavyweights.
Danny Williams had his shot, Scott Gammer still needs big British based fights and Audley Harrison is a joke in my opinion.
Give Matt a shot at any of the current crop of champs and he stands a great chance. As big a guy as Valuev is Skelton is stong as abull and could easily throw down with him.
As for the rest let them fight amongst themselves to see who is 2nd in Britain and send them on a plane over nxt.
We need a British heavyweight in the States to be challenging.

what the hell happened to Audley Harrison the other night, he looked like he was going to win in a couple of rounds, and then got KO'd in round 3, what a joke, what a knockout thow !!! Sprott has a evil left hook, and with that weapon he could pinch a world title I think, no one could still stand after a shot like that !!!

I actually backed Sprott at 4/1 to beat Harrison after checkin out his record. Hes no mug and Audleys a joke. Dont think Sprott will beat Skelton though, Skeltons a big big guy and should just bully Sprott into a defeat. Should be a good match though. As for Audley i think he should stick around on the British scene and have a few more fights, hes still an attraction and could go 4 either the British or European titles but thats as far as it goes.

Well I dont think Skelton has done anything to deserve a title shot but I would like to see him fight a top 20 guy. As a measuring stick.
Maybe a Monte Barrett,Owen Beck, Eddie Chambers or Dominick Guinn to see where he is at.

I understand where your coming from but Frank Warren has promised a title shot to the winner of the Sprott/Skelton fight.
Skeltons only done whats been asked of him.
