Default Re: What if the Soviets had always been allowed to fight in the pro ranks?

So it is not hard to believe the the better amateurs may have been more successful had they turned pro.

Although some Eastern Bloc amateurs turned pro at the start of the 90s, not many of the better amateurs did.
don't argue with jab239, just go to TKO6 thread to see how dumb he is. He is just a troll who gets owned in every argument, and then starts insulting everybody. He has no knowledge of boxing at all, he just a racist who hates all the EE fighters.
