The promoters rep who was watching Kashtanov, thought he was the best one of the three. Lomachenko would make an outstanding pro why aren't Ukrainian promoters trying to sign him or one of the major German promoters?
Nice, Kashtanov is a good fighter but have to wait and see how he does against better opponents, I think he has an interim title now so should find out soon. Those guys are quality fighters but I think the next generation of Ukrainian pros from the olympics could be special, p4p sort of guys. I think Lomachenko is planning to turn pro in America, he's had talks with golden boy and top rank when he was in Miami. His father wants him to get the best deal, who knows who he'll be signed to in the end but I'd imagine every major promoter in the world would be putting their offers on the table. Lomachenko and his team mates agreed to a season of WSB but they seemed to make it pretty clear that they're not entering into anything long term with AIBA so that's a relief for us fans, would hate to see that sort of talent lost to that APB nonsense.
