I've seen Perez and Acosta. They say Garcia is the better of the three. Perez impresses me a lot, extremely quick for a heavyweight, and has power, too

I like to be realistic homie so I would take Johnson, Despaigne and Solis from the list and replace them by Luis Garcia, Mike Perez and maybe Alexei Acosta.

Johnson and Despaigne are too old to really make an impact. Rigondeaux has the same age but we're talking about E.T. material here, he is not human.

Solis is the most talented HW in the world right now (people who dare deny this just don't know who he is) but he is a waste... He dropped boxing and started living the good life. He won't get far. He could be a hell of a champion if he had the Gamboa attitude...

IMO, the safe bets for future championships are Yuriorkis Gamboa (that's a 100% sure value), Erislandy Lara, Ismaikel Perez, Luis Garcia and Guillermo Rigondeaux (if inactivity hasn't killed him).

Alexei Acosta and Yuniel Dortico are really young and have huge potential, let's hope they'll turn into great fighters one day.

I've seen all 3 of the Irish based Cubans fight live(aswell as seeing Perez on tv a few times), imo Luis Garcia is the best of the lot and a strong strong contender for a future World champion. Of course it's still very early but if I was asked if I fancied the guy to do it or not I'd say he'll do it.

Perez is a better option than Solis at Heavyweight, merely because while he also has bags of natural talent he actually stays in shape, motivated and has continued putting guys away early and not messing about.

I was impressed with what I've seen of Acosta aswell.

All 3 fight in Newcastle, England on the 28th of this month. Just a few days away now.

I haven't seen much of Perez yet, but from what I've watched Solis is still better even at a fatso 250lbs shape.

Gotta put things in perspective, Solis has been fighting decent opposition while Perez has only been out there with tomato cans till now.

Solis should be in better shape if he wants to be taken seriously, the man doesn't even look like a sportsman in there.

Apart from that, Cuban fighters are shining and I'm loving it, they deserve all the recognition as real people that represent boxing.

i just do hope that their chins can hold up in the pro. They may be technically good boxers but their chins are unproven yet. Just think of Gamboa, a very good boxer with a lot of promise but he got KD'ed by lesser opponents. A higher level of fighter might just do the trick and stop Gamboa. So much for his amazing skills. The same can be said about the rest of them.
