Selkirk is massively talented and very highly rated by the Liverpool boxers. If Tony does reply on this thread he'll let you know better than me how good he is...I watched a number of his amateur fights down the years and he is different class on his day. He's got great skills and can punch too. He probably never fulfilled his true talent in the amateurs...

On the downside, he has had problems in the past with his hands...

If he stays dedicated and his hands hold up, he will go far, trust me!

World Class....How can you possibly say that, it is way too early to tell but he has got potential.

I actually watched this little man and he scares the ever living crap out of me, lol! once i saw him do the Mike Tyson combos with the bobbing and weaving, i was impressed. but then i saw him where he actually caught the pads with that famous Mayweather over the shoulder technique, i was shocked! in pad work, the shoulders never lie and sure enough, he had the proper shoulder hunch. as he gets older, the chin to chest tuck will come.

I also heard he was a gym rat from 6 years old who did 100 consecutive pushups, the only kid i can remember hearing that he knocked out 100 push ups at a time was a young Mike Tyson. As a senior in HS, it was reported that Mike hammered out 1500 pushups a day at 15x100 from 8am to 5pm, un-f***ing believable! i hope this kid doesn't peak and regress since he started so young. but the future looks bright for this young killer!
