The 5-3-2 (2) record is misleading. He can fight and has had good wins over Alex Phillips and MBSS rival Manny Zaber.
Baillie has more amateur experience than anyone else in MBSS – he had 58 bouts and shared a room with Kell Brook during an England training camp – turned pro in Australia after emigrating and fought in China as well before settling in Tamworth.
He is robust, has skills – and is game.
Josh offered to fight Sam Bowen – and nobody offers to fight him.
Baillie got his shot at the big time last year against Lee Appleyard on a Sky Sports show. Appleyard was just too big.
“If you lose, who cares ?” is Baillie’s attitude. “I want hard fights. I don’t want to just fight journeymen.”
