Default How good is David Dolan?

He is scheduled to fight Norton for the British Cruiserweight on February 6.Was dropping a division the right thing for him to do?His only loss was a bit false really given that it was over 3 rounds in prizefighter.Over 12 rounds,I'd expect he'd outbox Rogan comfortably.
He was a good amateur,do you think he has what it takes to break through to world level?
I haven't seen too much of him so I'd be interested in your thoughts

think he's got dropped a few times as a heavy, and he is fairly small and certainly more cruiser in size. skills wise he has a great chance to do something at cruiser. at heavy i just dont think he packed a big enough punch to keep guys off him.

Possibly European level at cruiser, if he was anything truly special he would not have been risked in the prizefighter tournament.

To be honest he wasnt big enough to become a successful heavy. And even if he was successful its hard to make money with 12 round decisions in the heavyweight division - he just isnt strong enough.

At cruiser he will fair better.

Not that good.

I think we'll see him knocked out at cruiserweight shortly. And I think Norton would beat him.

I think he’ll be almost as good as Haye @ Cruiserweight.

He looks a decent fighter,the drop in weight is a good move.
