Wouldnt call him a bum.

Decent fighter. Has a lot of size and strength. Nothing too pretty to watch though.

Was a world class kickboxer previously so you know hes tough.

Fighting Danny Williams next.

Iron chinned Ustinov with his huge size and monster power stands a strong chance against most.

In a weaker era this beast would already have been a long standing champion.

Ustinov certainly is a real contender.

I expect him to beat the living **** out of poor old Danny next week, and he's probably on his way to a fight with one of the brothers.
That's where it ends though, he doesn't have the skill to compete with either of them.

Certainly not a contender, did no one watch him fight Barrett?

yeah he won easily on points. Don't forget Haye got a title shot after beating Barrett in a seesaw fight that could have gone either way.

Neither. Although he's closer to the former.

We'll likely get this fight sometime next year when Dimitrenko drops his EU title for a shot at Vitali.

Would like to see Ustinov under 280lbs and in a real fight, being tested against dangerous competition. Then we will have info to make a decent assessment.

The way he is today, he is going nowhere.

Yet Haye was down for about 30 seconds although the ref give it as a push. With another ref there was a strong chance he could have been KO'd, we've seen it happen many times before with those type of 'pushes'.

I'm personally thrilled he's back to fighting inside the Bclass. After destroying Barrett and Sprott(2 legit gatekeepers) he's steadily dropped his LOC ever since. Even a 40 y/o Danny Williams is a huge test comparatively speaking considering Ustinovs last few fights.

He wasn't down for the whole 30 plus seconds but he was staggering badly and getting up and down while the fight was stopped.
