who the fuck is he? And defiantly who the fuck was he then?
It's like someone just wants him to be a celebrity. As if someone sees him as marketable for some other reason. Maybe birds like him or something i don't know but boxing wise i can't see any outstanding potential in him at all. None. He didn't show any skill either. None.
He looked pretty shit (for his hype) in the Olympics to me and was lucky to even win bronze. And I don't think he has the termperment or personality to be tough enough to be much of a fighter.
Then again you don't make Olympic boxing teams if you can't fight..or do you?
He won gold at the youth Olympics & the cadet world championships. He was also on the books at Norwich FC as a schoolboy & I think he's done some modelling as well. Think thats how he got on big bro.
He really had to dig deep to qualify, after coming back from injury he went to Turkey & was behind on points in the critical fight before coming back to win.
The kid is talented, has heart & can fight. He wont be a world champion but he'll do ok.
