Dominic Breazeale, excellent fighter?

Did you guys see him in the olympics? About the worst heavyweight I have seen in the olympic games, Dominic only made the olympics because the #1 US Heavyweight failed the drug test.

Importantly ... will Oleksandr Usyk keep the same haircut when in the pro ranks?

How do people think Usyk/Joshua/etc. will do against the currently ranked under 30 y.o. HWs like Szpilka, Boytsov, Fury, etc when/if they do meet in a few years (maybe less) from now?

I know there's not much to go on atm to assess this.

Well I suppose Usyk's a bit more proven with his WSB experience. Looking at how easily Usyk dealt with Joyce and Magomedrasul Majidov would suggest he has a strong chance against Boytsov and Fury. Spizka is not even on his level and has looked quite fragile so far.

At first I wasn't such a fan of the WSB but it grew on me quickly. Tbh the experience Usyk got fighting Majidov, Nistor and Joyce over 5 rounds without headgear is probably far better experience than Price's first 3 years as a pro.

Joshua & Usyk beat them decisively in a few years imo, Usyk beats them now, Joshua beat Fury up in sparring apparently.

With that experience and his success Oleksandr should go to HW but everything has said he's turning pro at CW which is a disappointment. I suppose adj.usting to 12 rounds against CW's would be better than doing it against HW's. Fight some top 30 guys right away and go for a title by 10 fights, defend it a few times gain world class experience than move up. If he stays at CW more than 2 years he's wasting his career.

Doubt he'll stay at CW for long tbh, he'll most likely pick up a title or two very quickly then move upto HW.

it was embarassing to even watch him at the olympics, he's an embarassing joke of a boxer. are you normal? this doesn't make sense you must have some nationalistic or racial bias or are trolling to talk such bulllshit. Is being Malik Scott's main sparring partner some sort of achievement
you don't now nothing about boxing
Look at his post history, he mentions Malik Scott in pretty much everyone he's obsessed with Malik Scott, he's gone quiet since Chisora beat him though.

I have seen him before. He hits hard, and has fair skills. On the negative side he's not fast, and not the not durable enough ( vs the bigger punchers ) to make it to the top.

I have seen smaller / faster / more skilled guys out point him. The big quesiton mark is stamina. If Zhieli good stamina, he might crack the top 20.

I think he's pretty poor personally but he could be one of the first to become big in the new Chinese niche market. Chuancy Wellier was bringing in good viewing figures over there so imagine what potential this fella has.
