I think after about 5 more fights, at least two of those against top 10 contenders, he deserves a chance to get a title shot. What do you think?
His next slate of fights should go something like this:
1. Legit Bum
2. Journeyman- Boswell, Bostice, Grant, Guinn, Ruiz, Golota, et al you pick one...
3. Over-bloated bum- Chisora, Sam, Fields (again), or some European title contender who ain't worth the price of soda pop at the weigh in let alone a seat at the fight.
4. A legit contender- Thompson, Arreola, Adamek, Ibragimov, Helenius, Johnson, Stiverne....
5. Title shot- Wlad, Potvetkin, or Vitali...
And that's that!
He is a good fighter. Hard hitter. He is moving at a good pace. Let him go for a bit.
