Default Your opinion on Jennings?

He dominated even though he got knocked down in the 3rd. In the long term this even might have been helpful because since he was hit by a big puncher but survived, he knows what to do when something like that happens and he did a good job at recovering in that round. He wasn't vulnerable as Mitchell is when he is hurt (and Tupou is a huge puncher). He is a pretty good prospect

good test this one, Jennings got up and showed that he can weather a storm, vicious uppercut that ended the fight

Not as good as Malik Scott, who completely schooled Tupou. Jennings really shouldn't be getting knocked down by guys like that, Tupou didn't land a punch on Scott.

But Jennings had his first pro fight in 2010 he is a really good boxer considering his young career and it's better for him to get knocked down now than against a better fighter, it's a learning experience

Fury, Price, Boytsov, Pulev

And then that second level with guys like Chisora.

All better in all honesty

I rather think Jennings and Hamer are pretty good prospects. You could call them mediocre, though I'd disagree. "****ing awful" isn't really a valid opinion. But, I wish you luck with it. As well as with the anus you undoubtedly have.

Scott and Jennings are two completely different fighters though.

Scott focuses on speed and flurries, while Jennings fights in and out, throwing straight meaningful shots, and aint afraid to take 1 to land 3.

I think the next logical step for both these guys is to fight each other.

Im a fan of both, but it's obvious that one guy is taking his career far more seriously, and these other spends more time focusing on looking the part of a gangster.
Ah hell, Scott is a G, but hanging with Wilder has me a little concerned with his ambition.

Good points I agree.

Bolded part would be great if happened but is it logical thou?

I woulda called Boystov a prospect in "07-08". Maybe in 09. But it's clear he has almost intentionally stalled his career.

Pulev was a prospect when he turned pro after his long and storied amateur career. He's generally considered a contender in most circles.

Fury is obviously bonafide. Yeah he's young, but to call him a prospect after 20 wins is a stretch.

Price....a case could be made that he's a prospect based soley off his slow progression. And yeah, with his amateur record, size and skillset, he could be considered the better prospect. But we still havent seen him vs a puncher with a chin and we probably won't until he's fighting an eliminator or for a title.
And even if you could consider a former EU and World Title challenger a prospect, Jennings is far better than Chisora.
