Default Re: what next for AA

AA needs to keep fighting at SMW, possibly challenging a MW champ along the way.

He's a good fighter. Just needs to find the fire again, possibly get a new trainer somewhere. I think he has potential to get some more big names on his resume.

He could make some big fights back in Germany with Sartison and Steiglitz. He just doesn't haven't to beat the current top SMW, all of whom will be moving up to Lt Heavy in another year or so.

AA is pretty much finished at world class level.He is an engaging guy and will still make decent money in Germany against Eurotrash fighters.

...unless he [Pavlik] gets KOed - a possibility that has looked remote in AA's last few fights but that would be very real v. Pavlik.

Bute might be the only one who could do it ...with a bodypunch

I thought Dirrell was going to stop him.

who did AA ever really beat at Middleweight? Nobody. He was just a protected German fighter who made a bit of cash from some easy defences against fringe contenders. He steps up a level and he beats a shop worn Jermaine Taylor. The rest of his fights he is with live opponents and gets schooled.

Likelihood is he will fight that bum Steiglitz in an all German showdown and then have a series of easy defences.

Nah, he had several decent wins in his run at MW.

Hamdan, Gardner, Eastman, Ikeke, Jantuah, Miranda x2, Demers, Ayala, Marquez, Simon, Oral - all decent enough names to go 12-0 (8 ko) against. They were not world beaters, but legitimate contenders (not fringe).

It isn't a sparkling resume, but it's decent.

At middleweight he was capable of getting by on his (very low volume of) big punches late in fights.

At super middleweight that simply doesn't cut it. Since moving up he's 2-3 with only one legitimate knockout (Bozic was stopped on a freak injury that he inflicted on himself). I'm not sure he'd even beat Stieglitz at the weight, tbh.

Unless he's able to move back down he'll never be a meaningful fighter again (and even if he can, it's questionable he can get back to where he was).

Only viable world level fight he could have now for me is Stieglitz. Pavlik would beat him comfortably, I'd fancy Stieglitz to win as well but at least that fight could be competitive. A drop down to middleweight would be a disaster, the competition there would be too much for him

We will have to agree to disagree on this one. None of those fighters had/have achieved anything on the world stage to date.
