Thanks for that info.Rybakov and Burmistrov are new to me, I have to research them along with refreshing my memory of the others.

On a side note the two wrestling disciplines and Olympic weightlifting also take a bunch of talent away from boxing over there. Russia and her Soviet republics having created an assembly line of dominace in those sports as well. Judo is another sport that ]Russian Federation dominates.

Between other sports and a general lack of opportunity more potential pro boxing talent is culled over there than in the U.S.. A bitter pill for many to swallow. Unfortunately for people like Jabs, nobody makes a pill for a bruised ego

Im from this side of the pond you moron.

You missed out on a lot more than two countries, and made yourself look stupid as ****.

This on the other hand is an equally absurd statement.

PS Not sure why the mods moved this thread here. Plenty of American fighters are being discussed.
