Skelton/Sprott II result
In a dreary rematch Matt Skelton once again proved too much for Michael Sprott to handle as he took a split decision win and succesfully defended his Commonwealth title.



Not much to say about this contest as it was so poor and in truth one of the worst this writer has ever witnessed. Sprott came solely to survive and Skelton was on a hiding to nothing as he was the only fighter willing to actually 'fight'.



Scoring for the fight was disgraceful as one judge somehow managed to conclude the fight was a draw and the two other cards were alarmingly close. For me it was hard to give the reluctant Sprott more than a single round.







So Skelton stumbles forward and will be looking for a world title fight but on the back of this terrible fight it'll be hard to persuade a champ to defend against him. As for Sprott, he can fall off the face of the earth for all i care. Clearly this fight reinforces the view that his defeat of Audley Harrison was just a fluke.
