haven't seen a thread on WBB about this matchup!
Donnie Thompson is to take on Andy Bolton, head to head, at the BPC british championships which will be held July 12-13th.
what does everyone think about this matchup? two world class SHW's going head to head. THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME
i'm for donnie. USA and WSBB for life!
**** I ment to vote for Donnie. I really hope Donnie wins this to prove how good he really is. I have trained with him twice a few years ago the man is from another planet hes so strong.
I also would like to see Donnie do well as he doesn't seem to get the same recognition as Bolton even though he is arguably as strong or stronger.

Deadlifts bring people together. It's a fact. - Chris Rodgers
Donnie is the man! Not much needs to be said about his squat and deadlift. His bench is what will put him over Bolton.
Donnie the Dinosaur
I have spoken to Donnie about this and he is ready!
My personal opinion is that Donnie will get it done. They are very close in the squat. Donnie smokes Andy in the bench. Andy will not pull 1000 lbs in a full meet where he squats in the 1200 lbs range. I would guess more in the 940-950 lbs range. If Donnie can get a high 800s pull he should be able to take it.
I think I am going to go watch

Something this big, my money is on someone getting injured and pulling out.
But if it happens, Bolton, just because his 1000 deadlift earns my support.
