the guy who he was fightling looked like a welterweight and he still couldn't dish out a stoppage i'm not sure he even hurt him, the only reason i'll tune into watching his fights is to see his fine ass sister who's sat at ringsides, the bitch is flippin gorgeous,

Well I think he's got the potential to beat the likes of Robert Stieglitz so I suppose yes.

It's hard to rule anyone out of being a world champion such is the shambles of the sport at times, I dont think he's particularly good though and has pillow fists.

He fights like he's on fight night, sadly you can't turn off and start again when you lose. This lad throws every punch in the book and doesn't make any effect on his opponent and part of it is due to fact he's not setting the work up.

Power comes in different forms but for him it needs to be speed and timing, plus sitting on shots. Body shots are decent, his head work is glitzy and spectacular but doesn't have the substance.

They've smartly and slyly dropped the level of his opponents down from area level to journeymen again. Smart move, because the way he's fighting he'd get stopped in a long fight with a decent fighter.

He's forcing his work, look at Donaire dropping Nishioka last night. He took a step back and let Nishioka lead then popped him with the straight right down the seam. Eubank Jr isn't thinking in there for me. It's just a display of what punches Daddy and Ronnie and Floyd Snr have shown him.

TBF it isn't easy when guys don't open up, but even when they have he's failed to finish his work.

Long way to go, don't like his attitude but he's a ok fighter for now..

He may develop some power as he gets older but it's definitely lacking at the moment and when someone with a bit of power realises his punches aren't causing too much damage they'll just walk through him and stop him. I actually think him vs degale down the line would be a decent match up as they both lack power but have skills and throw combinations.

Skills paybills is right he needs to plant his feet and sit on his shots more and throw
Hurtful shots instead of flashy pit a pat combinations. His old man used to crouch and throw shots with bad intentions whereas he seems too concerned about looking flashy.

i think hes ok ,remeber hes got a lot of pressure and some expectation due to who his dad is and what he achieved.

I think if hes guided well, and steps it up and kept busy i cant see why not. He is in good shape and seems to get reguler sparring

Not a chance IMO, he's showed no improvements since his debut which is worrying.

World champions aren't simply made of up talent and skill. We need to know what his dedication to training is like, can he come back from a loss, does he have a chin, can he fight a war etc etc

From the look of it, he has talent and his boxing skills are improving fight on fight. He is in a stacked division both domestically and internationally, even if he was to branch into Europe its tough.

If he can handle some setbacks then I think he could win some titles.

He's not even the best prospect at middle weight, Billy Joe Saunders would destroy him
