I saw Sylvester-Rotolo and thought Sylvester did excellent early on (the knockdown was a perfect right hand, accurate on the chin, though Rotolo got up rather easy). But during the middle rounds, Rotolo got in some very nice punches but from memory he lost the last few rounds and with that the fight. The crowd was pretty quiet and irresponsive when Rotolo was getting the better of it. I got a bit annoyed with Sylvester when every time he threw in a punch behind the head (or so it seemed) when they clinched.


How impressive does Platov look by the way? Promising contender?

Sylvester seems to be a neck punch specialist nowadays. Too bad. I guess he has started to realize how mediocre he really is.

Platov a promising contender? Hm! He is a good fighter,but he will be out of his shoes as soon as he meets one of the top names inside a box ring.
Cengiz Coc,Micheael Sprott,Danny Williams,Paolo Vidoz,Timo Hoffman-Platov is more or less on the same level with the aformentioned boxers IMO.
