If you’re looking for similarities between welterweight adversaries Anthony Johnson and Tommy Speer, you can find plenty of them on the surface – both are farm-raised, both have wrestling backgrounds, both are short on world-class experience but long on potential. Yet when the bell rings on Wednesday night in Colorado, Johnson believes his power may be the one thing that separates the two prospects now and forever.

Here here. I've been following Anthony for some time. I think he has alot of potential to become a top 10, even top 5, in the next two years. His loss to Rich was very hard fought, and he took it on tow weeks notice. He even got a knockdown, but he gassed.

Anthony Rd 1 KO
