Thanks Rod Strooth, and welcome to the board.

Chakkiev was a favorite of mine in the amateurs. He's hard as nails, fights aggressively, and as you can see has good power. His fundamental defense looks to have improved a bit as well, though it was not needed in this fight.

He said he wouldn't in a interview when he first turned pro but let's hope he changes his mind.

Looks a great prospect.

I think Chakkiev has already weighted in over 200 pounds. He can get to 210 no problem. 220 would be a bit too much weight for him,

I'm sold on Chakkiev as a power hitter as a heavyweight. He can move up there after he makes his money at crusier.
