Romainian Nistor is another guy too. He stopped Anthony Joshua at the 2011 European Championship.

Kapitonenko - I think he is going to go pro, not that it matters. He's not very good plus he's already 32.

Kuzmin - Omarov is 22 and unless he wins a gold medal i would be suprised to see him go pro. If he stays amateur then its more likely Kuzmin may turn pro. He would be a bigger more technically skilled version of Abdusalamov and make a promising pro imo.

Hrgovic - is only 19/20, sort of got screwed out of going to the Olympics and has been fighting in pro/am WSB. The AIBA is also starting some APB (AIBA pro boxing) which allows guys to keep their amateur status so i expect Hrgovic to continue on that path. I would love to see him go pro but seems unlikely.
