Default Better Apprenticeship - Yafai, Eubank Jnr or Buglioni?

1 Yafai
2 Eubank Jnr
3 Buglioni

Yafai is going at a breakneck speed and has the advantage of an earlier title shot in the lowe division. Eubank jnr is being matched hard and appears regularly on national TV. I think Buglioni should have had more bouts as TV dates should not be a problem. He is a major prospect and buildlng a massive fanbase, but he would be even bigger under Eddie Hearn

They're all doing well and fighting regularly, which is all you can ask at this stage.

I think they've taken Eubank a step back in his last fight, might have been a sign of things to come...as he had some tough work-outs from area level guys. He needs a lot of polishing in the gym, a hell of a lot, so he could do without burning too many bridges if ya know what I mean...

Eubank's opponents are now dropping in level, I think they know they've had to steady the reigns a little on him.

Yafai is moving at a good speed, He's more seasoned so it makes sense plus the division he's in domestically isn't as strong as Eubank Jr's.

Frank i haven't seen since Ryan Clark landed a few on his chops, I'd have to say Yafai's development seems more stable.

Agree with the order Colin's Mrs has

Yafai is much further down the road in terms of development than the others but has a lot more experience & appears to be the most talented. He's been a top am for years & still gets to spar all the team GB lads.

Junior didnt have many am fights but he did face some decent opposition out in the states, spending time with the Mayweathers & in other gyms in Vegas. So far in his pro career he's had some testing fights with tough but limited opponents which will hopefully be beneficial in the long term. Senior is a good mentor & certainly helps his profile.

Buglioni has a good trainer & a great fanbase, I think he's closer to his talent ceiling than the others. He might be a victim of his own success, by being so popular ***** might not be able to afford to have him fighting as often as he should.

Maybe comparing Yafai to Bradley Saunders is more comparable

All of them boxing no better than any other prospect, yafai possibly will be matched harder,not as stacked as the other weights

Eubank Jr. Roger Mayweather.

Eubank Sr made sure he learned the hard way, without the distractions, glitz and glamor that surrounds up and coming fighters here.

Best thing for him, plus it was a test, and he past it with flying colors.

Just hope he keeps his head down here, I've seen signs recently that it is starting to go to his head.

He fought twice in November 2011, then in 2012 February, April, June, September & December. Yafai has caught him up in half the time and will have lapped him twice over by this time next year.

I thought the Box Academy shows would be regular on Boxnation and would be headlined by Buglioni, Mitchell Smith & Co

Im not sold on Buglioni as a "major prospect", not at all to be bluntly honest

He's a likeable lad with an Italian surname, who looks the part and has a fan friendly style, his fan base doesn't speak for his ability ................. YET!

Eubank has fought the better guys all things considered IMHO

They were talking about how Buglioni in the amateurs had great skill but was too slow to use it, so he's more suited to the pros....now, is it me or does he have pretty great handspeed?
