I'm not so sure. It seems to me that Universum was forced to be cautious with Boytsov, because of his limitations and lack of a big amateur pedigree. Helenius and Pulev were different, in that they have stronger amateur pedigree and more talent.

If Universum hadn't moved carefully with Boytsov, they might have gotten him knocked off by a tough opponent.
