Age 23 Gerber (19-0) is making nice progress and is fighting the right opponents for now. Compare his opposition to that of age 26 Deontay Wilder.
If Gerber defeats Harris, he'll receive an IBF ranking.
Very nice. If he wins he'll be top ten so perhaps Gerber and Pulev/Dimitrenko will both be serious contenders in a few months and looks like Povetkin might finally step up now too after the Huck scare. New crop is just about set for the Klychko's.
