They are mostly Eurpean PROSPECTS, which i maybe why you have never heard of them. We did not bother with Povetkin, Valeuv, Adamek, the Kilts, etc. since they have reached their peak or are known quantities.
The first tier are European heavy prospects who are high rated or known from their amatuer days.
The second are similar americans and Brits (for comparative purposes)
The third tier are Euro prospects who are known by some of the fans on these boards despite being unhearladed.
The forth are names of undefeated European heavies that I got off of boxrec in the deeper end.
If you don't know most of them, don't worry about it. But you realy should familiarize yourself with Helenius, Pulev, Boytsov and Glazkov, as there is tremendous amount of excitment about them . Pulev and Helenius are moving at a fantastic pace.
