Default What's next for Abdusalamov?

The division needs this kind of pure puncher.

After tonight's victory over Maurice Byarm, Magomed Abdusalamov is poised to strike.

He has had a couple of good wins now, including a win vs Vincent Pettaway who was a pretty good amatuer, and undefeated as a pro

My point is this: given the cowardly nature of today's heavyweight division, Mago will not get a big fight. So who is the best challenge open to him?

Fury or Price will face him some time I think. Fury more or less has built his cv up against these type of fighters while Price brushed Magomed aside with ease in the AM's so will probably fancy adding him as an easy win for himself while looking good on American tv.

Mago hits too hard for Fury and Price's promoters liking, he'll continue to build his record against average opponents at best, until he gets a title shot

Price's amateur win over Abdusalamov doesn't mean as much as what it would have meant years and years ago because amateur boxing is no longer as similar to professional boxing as what it used to be. Not only are the gloves bigger and head protection is used but of greater significance is that the judging has changed. Nowadays it's just making contact with the white portion of the glove to a valid target area and having 2 or 3 judges press a button to document it. Leverage is irrellevant as well as knockdowns. Abdusalamov's style is not suited for modern amateur boxing. Magomed Abdusalamov is probably going to be avoided by high-profile prospects and contenders. He hits too hard and is too dangerous but what I saw from the Byarm fight, somebody with a quality long jab and intelligent footwork could beat him so Price still has a good chance just as long as he stays away from the ropes.

Price was smart enough not to be trapped against the ropes.

In most amateur contests nowadays it is 4 X 2 minute rounds as opposed to a professional round being 3 minutes long.

"Effective aggression" is not a particular factor in amateur judging, it's just how many times the white section of the glove touches a target area.

Headgear

Bigger gloves.

I see that Price used the correct strategy for dealing with Mago but it may be quite different to successfully use that same strategy in the pros.

I think what the boxer meant to say was that he wanted a bigger name opponent and quite frankly Abdusalamov is in the same boat. Wins over hungry prospects are good but since the other prospect is usually not well-known, the overall effect may not be the best use of time and resources. Plus, another prospect is probably not as high in the ranking as the "next level" opponent. It doesn't mean the prospect isn't capable, he just isn't ranked as high.

Mo Harris, D. Rossy, McCall, McCline, Boswell, Monte Barret, any of them would be suitable opponents for the next step.

At just 14 fights, the important thing is to keep active and get exposure.

With Grano coming off of a big win, not a bad idea.

Don't forget that Tyson Fury has knocked out Byarm as well.

Amateur is 3 x 3 minute rounds again. The 4 x 2 format didn't last long.
