From what I've heard he is in the Universum witness protection program.

Boytsov should be going after Peter (after Peter beats Aguilera). That's a fight he can win, it should be lucrative, and it will land him a fight against one of the Klitchkos.

He can forget about Haye, after Ruiz there is a Valuev rematch, then Vitali is actively pursuing an unification involving big money, and there will be a mandatory to be fought between Meehan and Chagaev coming soon.

What's up with this?How do they expect him to get up and train for these type of fights?
Universum must know something about Boytsov that we don't know. They have reasons for not taking risks with him, is my guess. Think about it: Boytsov has been a pro for six years now, and his only serious win is over Taras Bidenko, a light puncher who is top 20 or top 25 material at best. Kohl is clearly protecting his asset.

Compare Boytsov's progress with the way Universum handled the Klitschkos. After six years, Kohl had the Klitschkos fighting anyone who was available. Thus, if Kohl isn't moving Boytsov similarly, he must have a good reason.

Does Boytsov have the defensive skills to avoid being hit by Peter? If not, this could be a ruinous match for Boytsov.

Universum is always very, very careful with its prospects (and even champions). They don't take any risks unless they absolutely have to. That's why the German public seems to have lost interest in Universum events, while Sauerland is clearly #1 at this time.

If Boytsov can't get a fight with a respected challenger Pedro Carrion would not be a bad choice. If I remember correctly, Carrion is around the same height as Vladimir Klitschko and Boytsov could get some firsthand experience vs a tall fighter although I doubt Carrion has the Ukrainian's athletic prowess. I believe Carrion is also based in Germany as well so he may have already been considered. There are several recognizable fighters for Boytsov to compete against but it's a matter of how difficult does his management want to match him and how much the risk is worth; Juan Carlos Gomez could expose him as being too inexperienced or not strategically good enough, although an impressive win over Gomez would certainly look good, Vladimir Virchis would be an intriguing opponent, but Virchis is supposed to be a huge puncher and huge punchers are always dangerous same thing goes for relatively new prospect Edmund Gerber. Gerber appears to be heavyhanded but most likely doesn't have the experience to really compete vs. Boytsov, he does, however, hit hard enough to proof Boytsov's chin, should Boytsov be hit squarely a couple of times.

Boytsov turned pro at 18 yrs old and 200lbs. He also had back and spine injuries from when he was a child that forced him to take some time off after turning pro, fortunately he seems healthy as can be now.

Every interview i'v read has stated that 2010 is the year he's going to step it up and get into title contention. Keep in mind the guy is only 23 yrs old for christ's sake.

Okay, but within three to four years Universum was matching the Klitschkos with world rated fighters. I do not see that same pattern with Boytsov.

He has defensive skills, not top notch but they are there. His chin is still unproven though.

It's a competitive fight, IMO, both are big punchers but Boytsov moves a lot better and punches from a lot of angles, while Peter is very letargic and inert, looking for the big punch. I think Boytsov has a pretty good chance of winning.

Peter in his current condition would'nt be much competition for the young and hungry boystov.Still might be a decent match though.
