When you say we, do you mean us Americans?? I assume. Or just just boxing fans, more so leaning towards heavyweight fans and the division?? Cause I'd say Chambers is the better US fighter, and has been tested against far better. Given Arreola's supposed new commitment and training; his what seems to be a decent chin and good aggression can make him a threat to most.

Solis could be better, but I'd like to see him follow the Arreola way and comeback with new dedication and fitness. No way I can take him to serious after watching that Austin fight. The knee injury can't be overlooked either. He could never fully recover.

But if you just talking about the division, Povtekin should keep improving and has notable wins earlier in his career, and the youngsters who are a bit to green but decent will do the same.

he did appear to have some talent and could've been a descent hw in this era. however, he appears to into promotion and isn't willing to do what is necessary to be a true challenger/top hw. he obviously doesn't like risk and is afraid to put himself out there (be it avoiding any type of descent hw until he got a titleshot, or not sitting on his punches and being content to snap arm punches, to literally being afraid to throw a punch vs vitali for fear of being hit). shame cuz he has a lot of physical tools including some power when he actually tries. he's one of the worst examples of being way too into the promotion and business end of being a prize fighter and doesn't have the warrior mentality that greats have to one degree or another

KINGPIN is slated to be a boxing Free-Agent, he is trying to get out of his contract with Star Boxing. Joe Deguardia lined up only 3 fights this year/and next (against nobodies) for him....KINGPIN is training in GA with Michael Grant, Josue Blocus, Travis Walker and others......Once the contract is done with Star Boxing, KINGPIN will step up the competition......!!!! Dont blame KINGPIN when his promoter is the one ruining his activity level......Promoters are ruining the sweet science, not the boxers......How does fighting the likes of Galen Brown, Yohan Banks, etc. help an established career. (Brown, and banks are 2 of the possible fights Star Boxing have lined up)......

He put on one of the worst performances against an elite boxer in a long time. Where else is he supposed to go now but bumville?

Agree with everything you wrote.

I actually meant "we" fight fans. Chambers is a very skilled fighter. The only reason I didn't mention him is because apart from coming into his Klit fight 10 pounds too heavy and occasionally being a bit lazy in the ring (Pov fight) I think he already does quite well and isn't as big an underachiever as the other two .I believe he is the best the US currently has and I think he will get past Thompson too.

Actually come to think of it Eddie may be an overachiever. He is clearly carrying 10+ pounds of useless fat on him. Take it off and he's a bonafide Cruiser and he still holds his own with the best Heavies.

Sorry mate, no one can take Kevin Johnson seriously. Remember fellow posters when Johnson said he was gonna **** up Vitali Klitschko in a rematch? hahahaha. Thats the last I heard of his whereabouts.

He is all talk and no good wins.

He's waiting for the Klits to retire, and then he will emerge from the wreckage, in time for ....Helter Skelter!
