Default Re: how far will Thomas Oosthuizen go?

He hasnt fought a real puncher, skill wise is above average but less talented than DeGale or Dirrell he is top 10 and has the skill to outbox Stevenson.But against top 5 he'l loose to everyone.Ward,Kessler,Froch,Bute,Abraham all would KO him.

HBO rejected him as an opponent.

Froch vs Mack wasn't on any US network so that excuse is worthless.

Tall southpaw with very good hand speed, Solid chin, but he's really hittable and prefers to get close and slug it out to using his reach

I really like watching him, he's always laughing and dicking around in the ring, he'll probable pay for it eventually, but it's fun to watch for now

Loses to top 3, and probably to Bute and A too. Most likely actually.

watched him on Wealth TV the other day....
above average boxer using his range to drop shots...
like to get into exchanges and trusts his chin, needs to fight tall and drop shots at end of range

I rate him at B+ till proven, if and when he steps up
