Default Aussie Boxing Top Prospect

Who in everyones opinion is Australia's top boxing prospect that will go on & win world titles etc.

I had to take out some prospects that i felt were not quite up to it at this stage.
Unlucky guys were Dom Vea...Adam Forsyth...Brad Pitt...Daniel Ianazzo...Joel Brunker(real unlucky at number 11)

I picked Omotoso, Although i also think Tomlinson could go on to be a World Champion also. Omotoso is at a more advanced stage though and would be ready for a shot in a couple more fights.

Yepp why not...i could pick about 6 of those names.
I included a couple guys from lighter divisions as well, so some people could see we have prospects all over the joint from a variety of weights.
I could have pulled 10 names easy just from Lightweight to Middleweight

I also think Andy Green could go places, If he can get the right sparring etc. Maybe a move to the eastern States might help his career.

Andy Green could go places but at this stage he is no way inside the top 10 Aussie prospects to watch out for.
I think he still has a fair way to go to be honest.

Hey Kegsy.....this thread about aussie boxing prospects showcases your vast knowledge of the local scene

This is a timely reminder to all ESB voters in the end of year awards that you have the goods in this area.

Any chance this thread appeared to bolster your votes for "best local knowledge"
