True. This seems to be a pretty decent answer. I'm not to sold on his punch accuracy, but what can you expect from a young prospect. He will develop!

I think after about 5 more fights, at least two of those against top 10 contenders, he deserves a chance to get a title shot. What do you think?

His next slate of fights should go something like this:

1. Legit Bum

2. Journeyman- Boswell, Bostice, Grant, Guinn, Ruiz, Golota, et al you pick one...

3. Over-bloated bum- Chisora, Sam, Fields (again), or some European title contender who ain't worth the price of soda pop at the weigh in let alone a seat at the fight.

4. A legit contender- Thompson, Arreola, Adamek, Ibragimov, Helenius, Johnson, Stiverne....

5. Title shot- Wlad, Potvetkin, or Vitali...

And that's that!
He is a good fighter. Hard hitter. He is moving at a good pace. Let him go for a bit.

I agree that he's explosive but he's obviously short by modern HW standards and doesn't punch as hard as people are letting on. Also, at his size he'll have to expose himself to a LOT of punishment so he needs to get on the fast track and start making things happen as I believe his window of opportunity will close at around 30.
Peter or Rahman would be a good test for him but I don't think he's ready for Chambers, Arreola, Adamek(if he decides to keep fighting) or any of the other middle of the road HW contenders.

For now a Peter and above fight would be too much for him. I would put him in with Peter, Helenius and the like at about the fourth stage. Rahman may be a good journeyman fight for him... perhaps even on the third rung where we speak about the over-bloated contenders. Point's 3 and 3 can be interchangeable depending on your management style, where you see Perez going, etc etc...
