He's still growing and will presumably be full-time trainin on an irish sports council grant, so will continue to get bigger and stronger. Evryone keeps sayin he wil evolve into a heavyweight eventually, but i tink it mite happen sooner rather dan l8r (without him having a choice if he keeps growing
) and he'd be stuck in limbo den cos Con sheehan wil probly have qualified for the Olympics come the end of the next world championships. What's people thoughts on this??
id say hell b alright for 81 kg till london
the only reason i say this is because he just moved up but he did look huge
have to agree his speed doesnt look phenomenol or skill bt only 17
i was very impressed with his reactions power confidance and intelligance
