Vey possible Manning, but Vitali suffered a similar shoulder injury during the Byrd fight as Robbe suffered in his camp training for DelBoy. Robbe, without surgery was still able to hang with Del, a surefire top 50, for 12 even hurting him early when he broke two bones in his R hand.
Vitali recovered and continued his 90+%KO ratio, Robbe will likely as well.
Now, Boystov suffered similar hand injuries as Robbe did when he sent DelBoy reeling across the ring in rd 1 of their fight. And Boystov does seem to have less confidence in his hands, so it is possible that Robbe may have lost some confidence in his hands, but not likely in his power.
