Willie. He is a bit ahead of the rest in the skills department, and providing he passes a few more tests, I can see him winning a WT.

What about oh whats his name it elludes me, very fast hands lost to mosquira in the 12th after winning by a country mile? Lance gostellow i think he is very very good and can win a wt down the track i think he might be just abit ahead of willie, because hes already has a loss and knows what he needs to work on....

Lance Gostellow is a solid prospect, but i dont think he will go on to win a world title.
He has great height & reach for a Junior Welterweight, but gets caught far too often when attempting to brawl with boxers.

Geale and Kickett are almost a draw, but Kickett has lots of hard work ahead of him to be on the level Geale is in now.

Give Geale the right fight now (Sturm) , and i think he can do it.

Kickett, he has an awesome right hand counter punch like PBF. Its a counter punch but it sometimes lands before the other bloke lands his if that makes sense.

Interesting to see no-one has sided with Billy Dib & the impressive Jamie Pittman as of yet.

Kickett and not necessarily because he is a better boxer or more talented than anyone else on the list, but because he is being looked after by people who will nuture his talent to the fullest and get him the exposure and fights that could make him a big name in the states where it counts the most.

I too feel that Sturm is right for the picking & Geale could be that man.

A fight with Geale vs Jamie Pittman is also a mouthwatering matchup.
