Well, late twenties may still be infancy by heavyweight standards under normal circumstances, it's pretty clear that his body is breaking down prematurely. His bones are peanut brittle. He also faces a situation where the HW division is about to change drastically. It will no longer be "K2 and a bunch of scrubs", meaning there is room for someone with a bit of dynamite to easily punch their way to the top and become the #3 in the division and maybe hold a belt hostage.
I have a feeling the new crop, once it's matured, will be substantially improved over the current era's heavies (barring K2, who should be retiring soon, within that 2-3 year span)
