And let's not forget about Aleksandr Alekseev who is probably the best crusier prospect but can later move to HW.

I dont think so,shpion! Alexeev is far too small to compete with true heavies.
Once I was standing next to him during one of his promoter's fight cards in Germany and I couldnt fail to notice how big I was in comparison with him.
No way that he should move up to the big boys' league!

He will soon be the dominating force at cruiser weight IMO.
Rudolf Kraj is a very promising prospect ,too.
Huck,Kraj,Alexeev-these three names will very soon be the most mentioned ones in connection with the cruiser weight division.

Well, I have not seen in him in person but if I am not mistaken he is 6'2 and can probably feel comfortable at around 220. He's got mad skills and good power, so if people are talking about Haye's potential within the HW, I don't see why Alexeev would be left out.

I don't think you could consider him a prospect, but Samuel Peter is 26

Chris Arreola is 26 as well

Bowie Tupou is 24
Ryo Hidaka is 26

I keep hearing about an amateur named Isiah Thomas from Detroit but I can't find too much info about him. From what I've read, he may be too small to be a proper heavyweight.

Emanuel Steward is really high on Thomas - he said he throws punches like a heavyweight Ray Robinson

"Mighty" Mike Marrone.

Bring on Povetkin, Klitschko, and Peter, baby!

How about Michael Hunter? He's the US amateur I've heard the most good things about....

Obviously, Povetkin and Solis are light years ahead of everyone else in this one though.
