Amir Mansour and Malik Scott would cause serious damage to any HW in the world.

As for Ruiz, I just don't see what some of you see.

Potential? Maybe. The chance of him ever slimming down, to where he won't gass out in the later rounds against a top opponent, is almost zero.

He has speed, but surprisingly little power. That's partly because he doesn't sit on his punches properly: His back foot is planted, but it's actually too far back, and then he always leans forward when he throws, which negates that support. (it also exposes his chin)

Maybe with the right trainer, he could improve his balance & thus his power. - But that's a HUGE change to make, and I'll be very surprised if it ever happens.

He's just very fun to watch for me.

He's what 23? He's not developed his man power and his stamina has never seemed as bad as you'd expect, think he's done 8 rounds a few times and not slowed at all. I'd expect him to be going to 10 rounders this year though think he has surprising stamina. His power may not be 1 punch KO but they are hurtful shots and hurtful shots in bunches are for me better than looking to land a single hayemaker every so often.

Mansour is sadly too old in my eyes to be considered as a prospect. Scott is sadly not going to get by Glazkov if you ask me.
